SKU B079X51RR6 Category


The NIGHTFORCE NX8 1-8x24mm riflescope is a powerful, yet compact optic designed to excel in close to mid-range tactical shooting scenarios. Weighing just 17 ounces and measuring 8.75 inches long, the NX8 1-8×24 adds minimal size and weight to your rifle while providing premium quality optics and impressive versatility.

Superior Low Light Performance

Featuring a fast F1 lens system and excellent light transmission, the NX8 1-8×24 delivers bright, high-contrast images even in low light conditions. The generous 24mm objective lens gathers ample light while ED glass reduces chromatic aberration and color fringing. With a true 1x magnification on its lowest setting, the NX8 provides an unmatched field of view for situational awareness and target acquisition up close.

Intelligent First Focal Plane Reticles

The NX8 1-8×24 is equipped with intelligent first focal plane (FFP) FC-Mil or FC-MOA reticles that are visible and usable across the entire 1-8x magnification range. The centrally located red dot provides rapid target engagement up close like a holographic sight. As you dial up the magnification, the surrounding mil or MOA hashmarks and hold points seamlessly take over to allow for precise shots out to longer distances.

Rugged 30mm Tube Construction

Built on a rugged 30mm diameter aircraft-grade aluminum main tube, the NIGHTFORCE NX8 1-8x24mm scope provides enhanced strength and greater internal adjustment range compared to smaller 1-inch tubes. The tube is nitrogen purged and O-ring sealed to deliver waterproof, fogproof, and shockproof performance. Premium components like a smooth power throw lever and tactile adjustment knobs complete the durable construction.

Premium Edge-to-Edge Image Clarity

Employing premium Japanese glass and sophisticated optical coatings, the NX8 1-8x24mm delivers stunning edge-to-edge image resolution and contrast across its entire magnification range. Index-matched lenses and broadband anti-reflective coatings control stray light and reflections for a bright, high-definition view. Distortions like pin cushioning and barreling are also minimized for true to life target rendering.

Accurate and Repeatable ZeroStop Turrets

The Nightforce NX8 utilizes precise, finger-adjustable turrets with audible and tactile clicks. The ZeroStop system allows you to quickly revert back to your zero after making elevation adjustments, while the 2/10 MIL or 1/2 MOA adjustments provide accurate and repeatable dialing for ranged shots. With up to 44 MILS/17.6 MOA of total elevation travel, the NX8 has ample vertical adjustment to dial for distances out to 1000 yards and beyond.

Daylight Visible Red Dot and Illumination

An integrated daylight bright red dot allows for rapid close quarters target acquisition with both eyes open. The illumination is controlled by an easy-to-reach side knob with 11 intensity settings to match prevailing light conditions. A single CR2032 battery powers the illuminated dot for up to 1500 hours on lower settings.
