Nightforce Optics releases new second-focal-plane NX8 riflescopes.

Razor-Sharp Glass

Nightforce Optics of Orofino, Idaho, enjoys a reputation for building products that are a cut above. The company specializes in magnified optics for ballistic pursuits, and its scopes are well regarded for clarity, durability and for the variety of reticle options to ensure each scope meets the user’s needs and preferences. Nightforce’s NXS series have been a favorite among military and law enforcement users, but have been equally as popular among all-weather, all-terrain hunters. A couple years ago, Nightforce built on the NXS reputation and released the NX8 line with scopes having an 8X zoom range. These included a 1-8x24, 2.5-20x50 and a 4-32x50, all in the first-focal plane (FFP). FFP scopes (i.e., “F1” as Nightforce Optics refers to them) adjusts the reticle size with magnification changes. 

New for 2020, Nightforce is expanding the NX8 family of riflescopes to include optics in the second-focal plane (SFP), or “F2” as Nightforce labels them. Still operating within the 8X zoom ratio, SFP scopes will appear in 2.5-20x50 and 4-32x50 configurations. These optics will be sought after by hunters and competitive shooters who prefer the reticle to remain constant, even as magnification changes. Due to construction of SFP scopes, they tend to be more affordable options to FFP models:

Nightforce 2.5-20x50mm SFP $1,900
Nightforce 4-32x50mm SFP $2,100

As shooters increase their experience and understanding of optics, we see more of them turn to using Nightforce in the field and at the range. Expanding the NX8 line to include SFP options only broadens the brand’s popularity among hunters, shooters and professionals. The NX8 line offers excellent value for those of us who demand the latest advancements in optical, mechanical and electrical design.
