Tactical Optics

By definition, a tactical rifle is designed for a specific purpose. Nightforce produces scopes to suit a wide range of situations and harsh conditions. Please inquire for pricing information.

Created for people whose lives depend on their scope.

The hole you see in this well-used Nightforce 3.5-15x50 NXS scope was made by an enemy 7.62x39 round fired at a U.S. soldier. The bullet completely penetrated the erector tube - the heart of the scope's optical system. We're happy to report that the
soldier was not injured, and the only casualty is the scope's magnification ring, frozen on 15x. Its focus, tracking, and all other functions work just fine. It holds point of aim like new. The soldier wrapped the scope in duct tape to keep out sand and dirt, and used it without a problem for the next
three days, completing his mission. We receive many stories like this. Because Nightforce riflescopes are used in active theatres by most of the elite special forces worldwide, they are subjected to - and survive - the most brutal conditions imaginable. We won't say they're bulletproof. There is at least one soldier, however, who would argue otherwise.The ultimate test of a riflescope is not in a laboratory, not at the range, but under conditions that literally can mean life or death.

For many years, Nightforce has worked closely with the U.S. military. Our scopes are in use around the world by the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Army, and a number of Special Forces teams. Many of our riflescopes and their features were created in conjunction with military professionals to address their stringent requirements.

Nightforce scopes have earned their reputation under some of the most hostile, demanding conditions imaginable. To a military or law enforcement professional, it means reliability that can save their lives. To any shooter, it means precision, accuracy and repeatability with every shot, and a product of such superior quality that your scope is guaranteed against defects in workmanship and materials for as long as you own it.

Whatever conditions you encounter with your Nightforce riflescope, you can be confident that they - and their users - have somewhere, sometime, survived much worse.

1-4x24 NXS Compact

If hunting big, dangerous game is your passion, there is no better scope on the market to keep the odds in your favor. Its low profile complements big bore bolt action and double rifles. At 1 power, it is as quick as open sights and vastly more precise, allowing you to shoot with both eyes open. Your field of view is a full 100 feet at 100 yards, providing instant target acquisition and precise shot placement. It is designed for hunting dangerous game at close quarters, in dense brush, and for running targets. It is one of the few scopes in the world that will withstand repeated recoil from the largest magnum calibers.

2.5-10 x 24 NXS

Perhaps the most versatile, rugged and practical all-around scope on the market for the hunter and for general shooting. Those who thought a huge 40 or 50mm objective lens was essential for use in low light will find that the superb resolution of our lenses provides low-light performance comparable to-in most cases, exceeding-that of lesser quality scopes with massive objectives. The streamlined design of our 2.5-10 x 24 provides a wide range of mounting options and complements, rather than dominates, a fine hunting rifle. While it will easily absorb the pounding of heavy calibers, those who enjoy shooting small centerfire calibers will also appreciate a scope that does not overwhelm trimmer, elegant firearms. There are no parallax or focusing concerns, and its light weight makes it a perfect complement to a mountain rifle.

3.5-15 x 50 NXS & 3.5-15 x 56 NXS

Originally developed for use on military small arms, the 3.5-15x50 nxs allows a lower mounting profile. A practical magnification range and large field of view make it an invaluable scope for professionals and serious hunters as well. A full 110 MOA of internal adjustment make 3.5-15 models extremely versatile in the field and applicable to a wide range of applications.

The 3.5-15x56 NXS is the top choice for law enforcement snipers. A large objective lens increases resolution and exit pupil size for quicker target acquisition and optimal light performance in twilight conditions…an especially useful configuration for tactical teams that may not have a dedicated night vision scope. This superior optical design also benefits hunters and sport shooters who want a scope to perform in the shadows. It offers a full 110 MOA of adjustment and a practical magnification range. A large field of view allows the shooter to recover quickly from recoil for a second shot.

5.5-22 x 50 NXS & 5.5-22x56 NXS

Originally developed for the U.S. military's extreme long range shooting and hard target interdiction, both 5.5-22 Nightforce models provide a broad magnification range, four inches of eye relief and 100 MOA of elevation travel. These characteristics have proven highly appropriate for the .50 BMG, allowing shooters to accurately reach to 2000 yards and beyond. It retains a slim profile and is easily adaptable to a wide range of mounting systems. The superb resolution at high magnification also opens an entirely new world of extended range for the accomplished marksman.

The 5.5-22 x 56 NXS is the ultimate long range scope. Its 56mm objective lens provides maximum clarity and resolution across the entire magnification range. The most advanced field tactical scopes ever produced, the wide magnification factor of our 5.5-22 series allows precision accuracy at the longest ranges, yet at 5.5 power remains highly effective for shots at close ranges. Nightforce was the first company committed to perfecting extreme magnification variable power scopes. Our years of experience perfecting long-range optics is evident in every scope we build.

8-32 x 56 NXS & 12-42 x 56 NXS

Since 1992, Nightforce has been a winner in countless benchrest competitions. We have taken that knowledge and success and combined it with the durability and features of our NXS line to create the ultimate long-range field and target scopes. Evolved from our tactical line, the 8-32 x 56 and 12-42 x 56 offer fast adjustments for precise, repeatable shot placement. The extremely high magnification ranges mean there is now virtually no target outside the capable shooter’s reach.

The 12-42 x 56 NXS is the highest magnification scope we make. It provides optical resolution comparable to the highest quality spotting scopes and unsurpassed clarity across the entire magnification range. Both the 8-32 and 12-42 utilize 56mm objectives specifically designed for optimum resolution under all conditions—even at the highest magnification. In the past, accomplished long-range shooters could only wish for a scope equal to the capability of modern flat-shooting calibers. The question now becomes, does your rifle measure up to the 12-42 x 56 NXS?

8-32 x 56 Precision Benchrest & 12-42 x 56 Precision Benchrest

Each of our Precision Benchrest models feature 56mm multi-coated lenses, providing the superior resolution necessary to distinguish fine detail at extremely long ranges. An adjustable objective allows extra-fine focus to adjust parallax from 25 yards to infinity.

Target turrets are calibrated in true .125 M.O.A. (1/8 click) values and can be re-indexed to zero after sighting in.

Both Precision Benchrest riflescopes are equipped with a coil spring plunger return system to maximize tracking accuracy. The eyepiece provides fast reticle focusing, and a glass-etched illuminated reticle provides optimum image/reticle contrast under virtually any lighting conditions.

You have two choices of magnification ranges. But only one choice in the ultimate benchrest riflescopes.
