The NX8 2.5-20x50 F1 riflescope is an ultra-compact and capable riflescope. 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. Other features include the ZeroStop elevation adjustment for a rapid return to zero. The 50mm objective is optimized for resolution and light transmission, with a parallax adjustment coming as close as 11 yards. The integrated PTL (Power Throw Lever) makes power changes fast and easy. The performance available in such a compact size makes the NX8 2.5-20x50 F1 a perfect choice for your favorite semi-auto precision rifle or compact bolt-action rifle.

Like all of Nightforce's optics, the NX8 2.5-20x50 riflescope delivers the reveered bomb-proof durability. Each scope features a one-piece tube precision machined from a solid bar stock of 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum alloy. The tube is two to three times thicker than riflescopes of a lesser quality, resulting in less overall stress, greater thermal stability, a consistent zero and a virtually impervious shield for the precision optics within. The lenses are matched and aligned by hand in a process called optical indexing to ensure the highest possible optical performance. The objective lens utilizes a multi-element design like those found in the highest quality telescopes to focus light rays more precisely for exceptional image clarity and color accuracy. Optical performance is further enhanced thanks to multi-coated ED glass that results in superb light transmission, brilliant images, and exceptional color contrast. The internal mechanisms on the windage and elevation turrets are held in place by a specially designed spring that spends two weeks in a polishing tumbler before being installed in the optic to deliver perfectly smooth operation. This guarantees zero loss of integrity, zero loss of repeatability.

I am very pleased with this scope! The reticle is better (finer at highest magnification) than another comparable scope that I also researched and inspected. The salesman patiently showed me various scopes in my price range and I actually first entered the store expecting to take home another brand. This scope exceeds my expectations. Clear glass - edge to edge, very bright, awesome reticle, and the lighted feature allows this scope to excel in low magnification. Nightforce hit a sweet spot with this scope!

This is the 4th NF scope I have bought from Euro. Excellent optic, great eye relief, zero issues with eye box when prone. Downside to this optic is the digillum. The reticle on either red or green highest setting is not daylight bright. With that being said, if you’re using this scope for hunting, PRS, or killing paper, there’s no issues. Use the illume during early dawn/dusk and all is great in the world. If you’re the infamous internet SEALCAGRangerspecialoperatorforces, well then, the illumination is going to leave you sad.

My new favorite scope. This thing is the best DMR riflescope you can get IMO. Glass is excellent as always.

Awesome scope, low power range for fast shots and large field of view, high magnification for precision long range shots. Light weight, great glass and compact unit is a great fit on AR-10/SR-25 platform. Other reviewers mentioned Digillum (red and green) is not bright in daylight, I find it works well especially on lower magnification range. Tracks perfect, holds zero (zero stop is great) great in low light. Fast shipping (same day ship) and best price for product. Great job Nightforce and Euro Optic! Happy Customer

I am a long time NF scope owner and own several. Recently chose a NX8 2.5x20 for a new rifle build over much more expensive brands. Outstanding glass, lightweight, cust service, build quality, was the criteria. NightForce got the nod once again. They just keep getting better. I've found the "buy once, cry once" plan with rifle scopes to be prudent in the long run. This scope is priced very reasonably for the quality of scope and glass.

Had a small issue with the windage adjustments. But after calling Nighforce tech support, everything is good to go. I love the turret adjustments, zero stop and how nice and Audible the clicks are. The illumination isn’t as good as the Vortex. In daylight shooting and with the illumination at its highest setting, it’s still hard to see it, so bad, that I feel I have to so a double take, to see if it’s on or off. When comparing the glass quality and clarity I cannot tell the difference between this Nighforce and my high end Vortex scopes. The next question is, will I buy another Nighforce again ? Maybe. They aren’t cheap, but most of us know, our Shooting hobby isn’t cheap. I truly believe Vortex quality is just as good, without the higher price. And their VIP Warranty is allot better. I feel that I’m allot more careful, when handling my Nightforce than when handling my Vortex. Although Nighforce has a lifetime warranty, I know that If I drop my rifle and scope and dent the body, or break something, I’d probably have to pay for repairs. Nighforce also doesn’t include a sun shade. I had to order one All that said, I give this Scope a 8 over 10 I love it and don’t regret buying it.

Lightweight and great glass. Greater magnification range than the Leupold Mark 5 HD. Liked it so much I also bought a 1-8 NX8.
