Nightforce 5.5-22x50 NXS Rifle Scope
While the original design was influenced by the U.S. military’s needs for extreme long range shooting and hard target interdiction, the Nightforce NXS 5.5-22x has been a favorite of sportsman and law enforcement as well. Both 5.5-22 Nightforce NXS™ models provide a broad magnification range, excellent eye relief, and 100 MOA of elevation travel.
These characteristics, combined with the extreme ruggedness and reliability of every Nightforce riflescope, make them ideal for even the largest calibers. The slim profile of the Nightforce NXS 5.5-22 x 50 makes it easily adaptable to a wide range of mounting systems.
Its superb resolution at high magnification opens an entirely new world of extended range shooting for the accomplished marksman; Nightforce shooters are now accurately reaching to 2000 yards and beyond.

Customer Ratings & Reviews
Truly Rugged, Reliable, Repeatable. Ever watch a baggage handler THROW your rifle case on a plane. I have. Ever turn a turret and get NO POI movement downrange, or have it JUMP? I have. Ever turn your turret "up" then "back" and have a different POI? I have. That's why I only cry once... and buy Nightforce. There is a reason when you tour the SEAL MUSEUM you see so many N/F on the displayed rifles.
No question -- the best scope I have ever owned or used!
Nightforc did not compromise on any aspect of this scope. The glass clarity, the adjustment knobs, and the overall fit-&-finish are superlative. I have the scope mounted on a bolt action rifle (chambered in 6.5 CM), and use it for shooting steel targets out to 1,100 yards.
What can you say-it's a Nightforce? The glass is good; the turrets are fantastic with a very positive click; zero stop is great for quick target acquisition. But my favorite thing about the scope is the reticle; the lines are so fine that you can be extremely precise. Also have to mention the service with night force is awesome, I accidentally broke my zero stop -Totally my fault, and they fixed it for free! FYI-this thing is built like a tank; it's heavy! More for target shooting, not so much for carrying around on long days of hunting!
Excellent - EXCELLENT - scope
I have 2 of these scopes. I mounted the first on my Savage LRP .243 and liked it so well that I ordered a second one for my uglier-than-sin highly accurate post-64 Model 70 Win. in the (obsolete) .225 Winchester cartridge. (I have the 2nd scope and am waiting for the mounts to arrive . . . with bated breath.) I can't compare the quality of the glass to higher-priced scopes, but what I can say is that it's the best glass I've ever owned or even seen (I have a couple of Leupolds, a couple of Redfields and several Nikons plus a mish-mash of other scopes and sighting systems). The scope is heavy, but for my needs, that's not a vice but a virtue: my passion is long-range ground-squirrel shooting. I shoot off a bench with a Harris bipod, and the heavier my rig, the better. (The ground squirrels I shoot are roughly 5-7 inches from the base of the tale to top of the head.) I like the NXS's "zero-stop" feature a lot, and though I haven't used the illuminated reticle, I can well imagine circumstances where I would. Plus, my first scope tracks perfectly (which is why I bought the second one . . . to me, tracking is all-important). This is not the kind of scope you want to lug around on a light-weight hunting rifle when "hunting" requires walking (and quickly shouldering a weapon), or when you need to climb a steep mountain and want to minimize weight at all costs. If either is your goal, get a lighter scope. But if your shooting requirements do not require great mobility, then this is a terrific scope.
Love this scope!
I bought this NSX for shooting long range. It was my first high-end optic purchase. I have Leopold VX3I and Vortex Viper PST scopes. This thing just blows them away. The image is vivid, clear, and bright, even at max magnification. The turrets have distinct detents and track perfectly. The zero stop is a pinpoint positive stop at zero. It looks very durable and well made. This is an awesome scope. My only regret is I can't afford to put one on all my rifles.
Nightforce 5.5-22x50 nxs rifle scope
I have several Nightforce NXS scopes, and I run them for anything from the target, prairie dog hunting, and competition. This scope is built very well, has positive clicks, and they are repeatable. The glass is good quality, above average but not razor sharp like my Swarovski Z6's are. The only downsides to this scope is the weight, and how you adjust the illuminated reticle. It is a small screw in the battery compartment so you can't look through the scope and adjust, it's tried and Adjust then put it back together and try again until it's right... But once set, it works... it's also made to take a beating, but the weight does make it tough to put on a hunting rifle for walking when you are trying to keep the overall weight down. I think Nightforce offers a middle ground for the cost, good optics with great reticle choices, and unbelievable turrets, they are very precise and repeatable. The zero stop feature is bulletproof and works every time. This overall is a great tactical scope that can cross over to hunting and target without having to spend over 2k. Best for the money I've found.
