NightForce NXS 5.5-22×50mm
The NightForce NXS 5.5-22×50mm design was influenced by the U.S. military’s needs for extreme long range shooting and hard target interdiction. It has been a favorite of sportsman and law enforcement as well. The NXS 5.5-20×50 model provides a broad magnification range, excellent eye relief and 100 MOA of elevation travel.
These characteristics, combined with the extreme ruggedness and reliability of every Nightforce scope, make them ideal for even the largest calibers. The slim profile of the NXS makes it easily adaptable to a wide range of mounting systems.
Its superb resolution at high magnification opens an entirely new world of extended range shooting for the accomplished marksman; Nightforce shooters are now accurately reaching to 2000 yards and beyond.
MOAR – 20 MOA Reticle
The Nightforce MOAR reticle is a major advancement in precision shooting. a floating center crosshair two MOA wide and two MOA tall provides a precise aiming point— especially on smaller targets at longer ranges. One MOA elevation and windage spacings provide for more accurate range finding and hold offs compared to ordinary reticles with coarser markings.
The Nightforce MOAR has thicker line subtensions than the traditional reticles, and is marked with 10, 20 and 30 MOA elevation indicators (10 and 20 MOA windage indicators), making it extremely fast and easy to view under field conditions.
The MOAR design is more intuitive, easier to see in low light and more visible against dark backgrounds and in shadows than other MOA reticles. Shooters will also find the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock posts to be an excellent asset for greater speed and target acquisition.
The MOAR has established new levels of precision and ease of use for the long range shooter.
Nightforce customers asked for a finer version of the MOAR reticle for even more precision at extreme ranges, and the new MOAR-T delivers. .0625 MOA lines, with 1 MOA elevation and windage markings. Allows accurate rangefinding and holdover estimation at the longest distances. Center Illumination only.
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 ÷ moa x 100 = range in yards.
Please note that accurate rangefinding with the MOAR reticle can only be accomplished at the power settings shown above.
MIL-R – 5 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.
