Nightforce NX8 – 2.5-20x50mm F1


Video | What’s Included | Specs | Pictures | Restrictions

The Nightforce NX8 2.5-20 is what we believe to be Nightforce’s most versatile optic because of its weight and relatively compact size. Pair this with the first focal plane (F1) construction and a magnification range that hits a sweet spot on both ends, and you’ve got an optic that’s right at home whether it’s on a 16″ 5.56 SPR, a 6.5/308 gas gun, or even a short/long action bolt gun. Like other NX8s, the 2.5-20 is more cost-conscious than Nightforce’s top-of-the-line ATACR family while still offering exceptional performance and durability.
