    Another proven design of the NXS line is a model 5.5-22×50, primarily released for sniper rifle use in the US military and long-range shooting. As the acronym, NXS states an extreme robustness, reliability, and crispness optic is fundamental principles on which these scopes are constructed.

    For this rifle scope, the new proprietary Mil-R digital reticle illumination was developed, which is related to the Mildot reticle. Since the Mil-R Reticle is primary a metric reticle, a metric adjustment (centimeter) has been conceived as an alternative option for the angular position adjustment (MOA). The click-point changes by 1 cm per turn and by 50 cm to 100 m per complete turn. The 30 mm tube allows for greater internal adjustment. Hence the height adjustment range at 100 m is 100 MOA (291 cm), which is enough for high-power cartridges like .338 Lapua Magnum and .50 BMG to accurately reach to 2,000 yards and beyond when an appropriate mount is used.

    This model is also equipped with the unique mechanical "ZeroStop" function which solid mechanical clicks could be felt even with gloved hands. Zero-Stop makes it possible to set a mechanical O point on which the target telescope can be quickly turned back after being shot higher (to shoot further distances). The left knob is designed for the parallax setting, and it accommodates an illumination button, too. Offering a large magnification range and plentiful four inches (10 cm) of eye relief, these scopes are very comfortable making it ideal for long range shooting even with the heaviest calibers. The slim profile paired with the narrow shape of the 5.5-22 x 50 NXS allows easy adjustment to a wide range of mounting systems. In fact, it means one can mount the sight with a medium set of rings, or mount. And a rule of thumb is the lower to the barrel the scope is; the better it is for overall precision.

    As an owner of this pricey item would expect there is no color distortion or blurring of the edges. Furthermore, the reticle is glass-etched and placed in the second focal plane what some users complain suggesting to turning it into a first focal plane scope.
