For hunters or shooters who prefer a reticle in the second focal plane that stays consistent in size throughout the magnification range, the Nightforce NX8 F2 scopes will take your capabilities to a whole new level.

Nightforce Optics is known for creating the most rugged, reliable, and repeatable riflescopes, and their NX8 line is no exception. Building upon the legendary durability of the NXS family from Nightforce, the NX8 adds first focal plane performance with an 8x zoom range in a small package. This wide zoom range allows for fast engagements at close range along with the ability to detect, identify and engage targets at long range.

The NX8 2.5-20×50 F2 riflescope features the advanced digital reticle illumination technology (DigIllum™) designed to increase convenience and functionality in a single button control. Built into the side focus control, there is no additional width or knobs on the scope. This technology allows you to choose the appropriate illumination setting for your lighting conditions – either red or green, in five intensities from very dim to extremely bright.

ZeroStop™ technology allows you to create a positive mechanical stopping point at your chosen zero point. Then, no matter how many elevation adjustments you make, turning the elevation knob down to the ZeroStop™ setting returns you to your original zero, completely by feel—even in total darkness or while wearing gloves. No counting clicks, no need for visual reference, no wasted effort. Just an instant return to zero. Every time.

The optical system uses ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lenses to allow for great optical quality in a system with an 8x zoom ratio and short overall length.

The new MOAR-CF2 reticle is calibrated at 20x and provides users with an open center with dot and intuitive numbering of subtensions for a clear view of the target and fast holds anywhere in the reticle.
