Nightforce Sets the Standard for Riflescopes

Michael Bane, host of Shooting Gallery on Outdoor Channel and Shooting Gallery Online on, spoke with Paul Forest of Nightforce at NRA 2018 about a few of their featured rifle scopes.

Forest first showed Bane their ATACR 1-8x24 rifle scope. The scope includes pristine ED glass, bright daylight illumination and an intelligent reticle. Its body tube measures in at 34mm and weighs only 21 ounces. The bright daylight illumination allows the scope to be used at anytime of the day. This scope is their premier 1-8x that they offer.

Next, Forest brought out the NX8 1-8x24 rifle scope, which is a little bit smaller and lighter than the ATACR. It measures in at 30mm and weighs 17 ounces. The NX8 is built for short to mid range distance and is great for 3-gun competitors, or even hunters.
