Nightforce NX8 1-8x24mm Capped Turrets F1 Scope
The Nightforce NX8 1-8x24mm is a First Focal Plane scope that features capped elevation turrets to ensure the elevation adjustment is not accidentally moved during transit or rough handling. The lightweight scope weighs in at 17 ounces, and has a compact length of only 8.75″. Available in both Dark Earth and Black to give you color options when kitting out your favorite rifle.
The NX8 1-8X24 F1 with capped elevation adjustment also includes Nightforce’s FC-DMx reticle, previously only available in the ATACR 1-8×24 F1. The decreased center dot size (.2MRAD/.7MOA) allows for a more precise aiming point when at high magnification and the large (4 MRAD) segmented circle allows for a clear view of the target. Nightforce has maintained the daylight bright illumination that allows for use in any conditions at 1x or high magnification.
The FC-DMx Reticle segmented circle has been increased in diameter from 2MRAD to 4MRAD and made thinner to maintain the same illuminated area. This open center area allows the user a clear view of the target to make fast, unobstructed shoot/no-shoot decisions. The 0.2MRAD (0.7MOA) center dot provides a precise aiming point when at high magnification. A 1MRAD resolution aiming grid allows for simultaneous holds (elevation and wind) to 10MRAD of elevation. The line labels are placed on both the left and right for fast acquisition and are located to the outside for a clear view of the target within the grid. The unobstructed view of the target, daylight visible illumination, and intuitive labeling of the FC-DMx provide the user with increased capability for both close and far targets.
