Nightforce Optics has certainly made a huge impact on rifle optics market since their very start back in 1992. Nightforce have certainly gathered a significant reputation for quality that has placed them in the same league as Bushnell, Nikon Swarovski and Leupold, respectively. The Nightforce Optics 5.5-22×50 NXS rifle scope is a prime example of one of their greatest products to date.
Nightforce are so incredibly exact about their popular scopes, that they hand test each and every single one of them at their Orofino, Idaho headquarters, in which they have covered a variety of 70 different points on the scope, while also conducting necessary battery operational tests. Robust tests from Nightforce make sure and allow that any shooter can use the 5.5-22×50 NXS in some of the harshest environments.
Nightforce are focused on meeting the U.S. military’s necessary long range shooting requirements, as the 5.5-22×50 NXS rifle scope comes with an incredibly generous 100 MOA of elevation travel, with up to 60 MOA of windage adjustments. Nightforce has also claimed that this will allow accomplished and enthusiastic shooters to accurately shoot up to 2000 yards and even beyond this distance, with an incredibly clear image at ranges that are far beyond what most common scopes will allow.
A Rifle Scope Designed Specifically For Long Range Shooting.
The Nightforce 5.5-22×50 NXS Rifle Scope is uniquely designed primarily for long range shooting. As good as the NXS rifle scope is, the shooter should still posses incredible control of the rifle in order to make a successful shot at such incredibly long distances. Nevertheless if you are an individual who prefers to shoot or hunt in the wide open spaces; then the 5.5-22×50 NXS rifle scope is the perfect choice.
Nevertheless, the minimum 5.5 magnification may limit some shooting distances to around 100 yards, as the view doesn’t provide the greatest tracking ability on a small moving target such as an animal. So if you’re someone who normally hunts or shoots at ranges within 100 yards, you may wish to consider the NXS Compact series of scopes.
The Nightforce 5.5-22×50 NXS Rifle Scope comes with a 30mm tube diameter which provides a wide range of possible mounting options and choices. Reticle illumination comes as standard, and also the trademarked ZeroStop. If you are unfamiliar with ZeroStop, it’s an ingenious feature that enables the shooter to make sure that you will never be able to dial your scope past the zero mark. The ZeroStop is designed with a unique clutch system which is seated inside the elevation turret.
