Like all of Nightforce’s premium riflescopes, the NX8 offers Rugged, Reliable, and Repeatable performance. The NX8 has been heavily optimized toward fast target acquisition and short- to mid-range shooting. At closer ranges, the magnification can be dialed back, allowing the NX8’s true daylight visible FC-DMx reticle to be used as a red dot sight. As targets increase in distance, the magnification can be increased and the shooter can take full advantage of the FC-DMx’s “Christmas Tree” grid of windage and elevation holdover points. Changes in magnification can be made instantaneously thanks to the included throw lever, and adjustments to the capped elevation turret doesn’t require tools. Additionally, the NX8 features a first focal plane reticle and utilizes a lightweight, compact overall design.
