Nightforce NXS 3.5-15x50mm
Originally developed for use on military small arms, it offers an extremely versatile magnification range providing outstanding mid- to long-range capability.
The Nightforce NXS 3.5-15x50 to the left was shot completely through by an enemy 7.62x39 round fired at a U.S. soldier…yet the unharmed serviceman used it for the next three days, completing his mission. The 3.5-15x50 adapts comfortably to a variety of rifle platforms, survives abuse that would destroy lesser riflescopes, and is impervious to heavy recoil. And, apparently, to enemy bullets.

Customer Ratings & Reviews
WOW what glass
I have many other scopes (over 47) and many hight dollars. But this Night Force is the best; I put it on a 22-250 for hunting coyotes, prairie dogs, and other games.Many shots are over 400 yards with the finest and east cross-hairs to see or use, and the adjustments are right on. I have ordered more Night Force scopes for some of my other rifles.
I own Zeiss, Swarovski & Leica optics. This Nightforce NXS 3.5-15x50 is very impressive optically. Seems robust and well made. I was suspect of the factory setting on the illumination, but that concern appears unfounded. In pitch dark, there is no illumination washout; and the ambient light vs. illumination brightness is proportional. The rotation of the entire ocular bell makes a rear Butler Creek scope cover a challenge. Impressive enough that I'd buy another Nightforce in the future.
Well, If I want my new Savage in 300WSM to be a 1000 yard gun, I knew I had to buy a Nightforce scope. But, wow, the brightness and clarity are incredible. Also, I love the high-speed adjustments and the Zero-stop function. I have the discontinued NP-R1 reticle and I love it - it's great for range finding and looks clean when illuminated. It's really exciting to have such a great scope on my rifle. I got the lower powered 3.5-15 because I will use the rifle mostly for hunting, but I'll be ready for our annual 1000 yard shoot and the occasional 600 yard get together. Yes, the scope is heavy, but I like a heavier rig because it lowers recoil on the magnums. If you're looking to keep weight down, maybe you should consider the SHV line. The illuminated reticle works well in low-light conditions, though I haven't used the gun in those conditions yet. Lastly, I went all the way and mounted the Nightforce one piece 20MOA base as well as their four-screw rings. I want to use as much of that 110MOA as I can. Good yet bad: This scope is a tank! What a beast! But it isn't sexy like my 1" tube scopes. Well, now I know why they make 30mm tubes, because the light they transmit is so much more. I did the math: the area of the 30mm tube is almost 40% greater than the the 1" (25.4mm) tube (pi x rsquared). Before you die you have to have one of these :)
One rugged and precise piece of glass.
I wanted a decent scope for my heavily modified Armalite AR10 and researched scopes until my brain melted. I already have a Leupold Mark 4 LR/T but was looking for something different in the reticle and finally decided on the Velocity 1000. The Nightforce NXS 3.5-15x50mm is a rugged scope, and the glass is crystal clear from edge to edge to the highest magnification. The turrets are crisp and precise, and I love the zero stop, set at 200 yards. After zeroing the scope and some serious concentration on my part, I was rewarded with a five-shot .334" group at 200 yards using military M118LR ammunition (175 grain Matchking over 44.3 grains of Reloder 15 @ 2640 fps out of my 21" Noveske barrel), 2011 headstamp. These were pulled and weighed from 5 random cartridges. The scope never waivered and the target was as clear at 200 yards as if it was right in front of the muzzle. The only drawback I could fault is the reticle brightness adjustment, which requires removing the focus adjustment turret to adjust the intensity. However, I found the factory setting almost perfect for most low-light shooting situations. Weight was not an issue for me as my rig weighs in at a hefty 16+ pounds with an empty 10 round magazine with the scope. If you're looking for a scope for your hunting rifle that is to be carried in the field a great distance, this is probably not the best scope for you but if you're a long range or tactical shooter, give this scope some serious attention and consideration. You will not be disappointed.
Worth the money!
I hemmed and hawed over the purchase until my wife told me she was sick of me talking about it. Mounted it on a 20" bbl Savage Model 10 in.308 Win, bore-sighted, and maintained a three-inch group at 200 yards with non-match grade ammo. It is pricey, but it is a seriously good scope. I opted for the illuminated MOAR reticle. Be prepared to spend some money on some solid rings.
Just what you would expect from Nightforce
Just what you would expect from Nightforce. Reliable build quality, crystal clear glass, very positive turrets, and correct tracking/return to zero. The Zero stop is simple to set. The MOAR reticle is excellent for those who use their rifle for multiple purposes. It's thin enough for target shooting yet thick enough to use in low light with ease. By far, the best MOA based reticle I have used so far. I would recommend this scope to anyone with a $2,000 or less budget—definitely the best value for that price range.
