Nightforce NXS 2.5-10x42mm Compact Scope
The Nightforce NXS 2.5-10x42mm Compact Scope is the biggest and baddest little scope on the market. It features a 42mm objective lens for maximized light transmission without compromising overall light weight and compact profile. It is one of the only 10x scope on the market with adjustable parallax, from 25 yards to infinity.
Instant magnification changes in a fraction of a second, even if you’re wearing gloves. Your scope arrives with a flush insert, which you can easily replace with the threaded Power Throw Lever knob. Like so many Nightforce features, the PTL is included on our Compacts at no extra cost.

Power Throw Lever (PTL)

MOAR – 30 MOA Reticle
With 1 MOA elevation and windage markings, more accurate range finding and hold offs are possible on smaller targets at longer ranges. Combined with a floating center crosshair, this makes for a reticle extremely fast and easy to use in the field. MOAR reticles in Nightforce 5.5-22x and 8-32x NXS models have a 20 MOA scale below centerline (at left). Reticles in 3.5-15x models have an additional 10 MOA scale below center.
The elevation and windage marks can be used for ranging objects when the size of the target is known. Bracket the target from top to bottom or side to side within the marks. Distance to target can then be determined using this formula:
Target size in inches ÷ Image size (moa) x 95.5 = range in yards.
For field expedient ranging inside of 500 yards, a constant of 100 can be used in place of 95.5.
Please note that accurate rangefinding with the MOAR reticle can only be accomplished at the power settings shown above.
MIL-R – 10 Mils Reticle
Precise Mil-Radian ranging, accurate hold offs, on the money first-shot placement and quick follow up shots on either still or moving targets are the results with the Nightforce MIL-RTM reticle. Everything about it is designed to be fast and intuitive. The clean, uncluttered floating center crosshair is precisely 1.0 Mil, supported by whole, half, .2 and .1 Mil-Radian graduations. Numerical indicators provide quick reference to Mil-Radian spacing under stressful conditions. The spaces between the whole Mil-Radian graduations provide accurate ranging and hold off references in much finer, more precise increments than coarser, less intelligent reticles. The shooter can also easily distinguish between whole and half Mils. Unique to the MIL-RTM is the inverted “T” Mil-Radian ranging scale. This allows the shooter to easily and logically reference zero to whole Mil-Radians in .2 and .1 Mil- Radian markings. It’s fast, precise and smart. Almost as smart as the shooter who uses it.
