Born from Mil-Spec requirements, the NXS line of battlefield ready precision riflescopes stand ready to function under the harshest extremes and meet your demanding needs.  The NXS family includes both compact and full size models. The compact models, including the 1-4×24 and 2.5-10x models, are your perfect choice for hunting game in the bush, running and gunning on a 3-gun course, or while on patrol.  These compact NXS riflescopes offer the optimum balance between size, weight, and magnification. The NXS full size models continue with the military small arms based 3.5-15×50, our most proven long-range riflescope the 5.5-22×56, and push out to the extreme with the 8-32×56.  From the proprietary Mil-Spec bonding agent incorporated in the optical mounting package which ensures no metal to glass contact, to the hardened bronze materials utilized in the adjustment and erector tube assemblies, the Nightforce NXS family of riflescopes define Rugged, Reliable, Repeatable.

IHR Reticle

IHR stands for International Hunting Reticle, with good reason. It’s uncluttered and lightning fast, equally effective on dangerous game in tight quarters and at longer ranges on smaller targets. A floating illuminated center crosshair provides simple hold off capability. 3, 6 and 9 o’clock posts bring the eye quickly to your target.
