Lavonia, GA -( - Nightforce® Optics, leading manufacturer and marketer of premium sport optics and related products including riflescopes, spotting scopes, and accessories, today introduced a completely new category of optics to their line of finely crafted and durable riflescopes. The state-of-the-art NX8™ series is built upon the legendary NXS™ family of riflescopes, well-known for their robustness and battle-proven design. Applying the latest technology and scientific advancements in optics, Nightforce designed the new NX8.

The first riflescope unveiled in the NX8 family is the new NX8 1-8x24 F1 optic. Specifically designed for short -to medium-range shooting, the compact NX8 1-8x24 F1 riflescope delivers trusted Nightforce performance to virtually any rifle platform, and boasts true 1x capability.

"Constructing such a small riflescope to surpass the performance of most larger scopes entails a solid commitment to innovation and optical technology," said Nightforce Director of Sales and Marketing, Gordon Myers.
"The compact NX8 1-8x24 F1 has true 1x magnification and a daylight visible reticle with multiple brightness settings, it is versatile enough to use at close ranges, plus, has extraordinary capability at far reaching distances" stated North America Sales Manager, Alan Stilwell. "The NX8 1-8x24 F1 conserves valuable real estate on your rifle at only 8.75 inches in length, and weighs just 17 ounces," Stilwell added. "Put it on your competition rifle for 3-gun, or use it for a variety of shooting disciplines; the NX8 1-8x24 F1 is also robust enough for professional use."
As targets increase in distance, the intelligent FC-MIL™ or FC-MOA™ first focal plane reticle options provide precise hold points. For those preferring to dial for long shots, the turrets feature Nightforce ZeroStop® elevation-adjustable technology with windage limiter, allowing for a rapid return to absolute zero regardless of any previous elevation adjustments. Adjustments are a true .2 Mil-Radian or .50 MOA. And, to aid in fast magnification adjustments, the Power Throw Lever (PTL) is included.  

On display at SHOT Show 2018, in Las Vegas, NV, the compact and lightweight Nightforce NX8 1-8x24 F1 adds flexibility to your shooting options with fast target acquisition at a variety of distances. Please visit us in booth #20449.
