Nightforce Optics is one of the world’s premier rifle optics manufacturers, and has just announced the introduction of their new NX8 family of rifle scopes. The NX8 rifle scopes will be 1-8x24mm scopes featuring some of Nightforce Optic’s most advanced technology. The NX8 family offers true 1x quick reflex shooting with the ability to extend out to 8x magnification for targets at medium-long ranges.
The trend in 1-8x24mm rifle optics is the natural expansion on the original 1-4x optics that took the market by fire several years ago. Those 1-4x optics were a perfect combination of the benefits of red-dot optics, and low magnification fixed scopes like the Trijicon ACOG. With the enormous growth in 3-gun and other shooting competitions, these optics were bound to be popular. Next came the 1-6×24 scopes offering better mid-range precision shooting. Now the 1-8×24 scopes are offering a near complete package in one scope – close quarter reflex shooting ability, combined with very good medium-long range precision.
