Customer Ratings & Reviews
Nightforce NXS 8x32 very good but not quite perfect
rewrite " After reading some of the reviews I figured I'd talk about the scope rather than bash other reviewers opinions �. Me: infantry officer, current federal law enforcement officer and prs shooter. The pros: excellent glass. I shoot the moar-t reticle and love how fine it is. Occasionally it can be hard to see depending on the background so if your vision isn't what it used to be, stick with the moar reticle as it is thicker. I also like that only the center cross us illuminated (both versions). The turrets are great, not to small or huge (b.e.a.s.t) and setting the zero stop is easy. I use this on a hunting rifle. The magnification is great and crystal clear and helps when I'm trying to count points on horns. At the range if I've fired a bunch of rounds or is a hot day I'll dial the mag back a bit because of mirage. But I can still zoom in to see 6.5mm holes at 200 yards. On a hunting rifle I like the second focal plane because the reticle looks good through the whole magnification range and I seldom use the reticle for ranging using the reticle (rangefinder anyone lol). The 30mm tube is smaller than some of my other scopes but with the 56mm objective lens I don't really notice it being that much darker than my other scopes. You do lose a bit of field of view at max resolution but if the target is moving, I'll just back out the magnification a bit. Also with a smaller tube you lose some elevation travel but I've never had an issue with running out of elevation and if you do then go with a 30moa or more elevation rail. Also with the 30mm tube it helps keep the weight of the scope down. The illumination is easy to turn on, but there is no external adjustment for brightness so you have to unscrew the cap and adjust the brightness internally. As a side note the windage cap has a slot for you to keep a spare battery inside the cap for your illumination. I wish they would the illumination adjustable from the outside with an off between each setting. I imagine they designed out the way they did to keep it simple and small so I understand but... another issue is the whole eyepiece rotates when you change magnification so if you have flip caps they rotate around as you turn. Not a big deal if your caps fold open flat but something to be aware of. Another note is my nxs didn't come with caps, just the rubber ish stretch cover which works but isn't the best for hunting etc. Also be aware of the height required for your scope mounts. Generally you're going to need pretty high mounting rings because of the lens diameter and don't forget to go a little higher to make clearance for your caps when you buy some. To totally get picky I wish the parallax ring was also marked in yardage rather than just tick marks. It's convenient to range your target, dial elevation, then adjust your parallax to the range and then fine tune. This is easier when the range is listed on the nob. Ours Overall I think these are some of the best scopes for the money. "
nightforce nxs 8-32 review
I'm a beginner in long-range shooting, but this scope has me regretting not starting sooner. The positive reviews are spot-on - setting up and zeroing at 100 yards was simple and produced sub-MOA results. The optics are top-notch and live up to the high praise. I had some concerns about the 32x magnification, but after using it, I can't see any downsides. The optics are crystal clear even at 100 yards, and the long-range capabilities are amazing. The MOAR reticle is straightforward to use, and making holdovers and elevation adjustments is a breeze. I'm glad I made the investment.
Resistance is futile
I used to be skeptical of Nightforce fans, but after multiple issues with their previous model, I lost trust in the brand. However, after using the NXS 8-32x56 model, I understand why people are fans. It tracks perfectly, the glass is clear and sharp, and I never doubt its performance. This scope has the potential to improve the shooting ability of any firearm. Despite its high cost, it's worth the investment.
My 4th Nightforce
I recently purchased my second 8-32x56 Nightforce scope, bringing my total number of Nightforce scopes to four. As a long-range shooting enthusiast, I go prairie dog hunting with a group of friends who also dial their scopes for elevation and windage. I was impressed by the precise adjustments of this scope, which allow me to shoot at 950 yards and then quickly dial back down to 325 yards, all while maintaining accuracy. The clarity of the glass is outstanding, even in conditions with heat mirage, allowing me to maintain a clear sight picture better than my friends' scopes. Additionally, the crisp adjustments on the turret dials are a standout feature, with each click being clearly audible and felt, which was not the case with other scopes I have owned. While the price may be high, I believe that the performance and quality make it a worthy investment.
Nightforce lives up to their name
As a seasoned precision marksman with experience in various shooting domains like the military, competitive shooting, hunting, and more, I have used optics from various manufacturers. However, for the past 10 years, I have been exclusively using Nightforce scopes, and have replaced all my previous optics with them. In my opinion, the Nightforce NXS 8-32x56 is unmatched in its tracking capabilities, even compared to other scopes costing much more. When mounted correctly on a rifle with high-quality hardware, I have never experienced a shift of 1/4 MOA in point of impact. The resolution of Nightforce scopes is also outstanding, with clarity that holds its own against other brands. I visited Nightforce's factory in Idaho and was impressed by the quality of the optics being manufactured there. The tech representative I spoke with was knowledgeable and passionate about shooting, and the company's customer service and professionalism reflect the high quality of their products. The scopes are marked either "Made in USA" or "Made in Japan", and Nightforce informed me that this is due to the sourcing of glass from Japan, which dictates how the scope is marked.
My Nightforce NXS 8-32x56 review
Bought this for a long-range .308 setup. Mounted it using an EGW 20 MOA base and Seekins low rings. Just barely enough clearance with the low rings and no chance of using any type of lens covers. Unequaled clarity and the 32X is really nice at longer ranges. I'm able to forgo the spotting scope when shooting steel out to 800 yards, and possibly further once I have an opportunity to shoot at the longer ranges. I also like the MOAR-T style reticle, but I wish it were available in a MIL/MIL scope.
Expensive but no regrets and done buying a scope.
The Nightforce NXS 8-32x56 is a great optics for shooting targets out to 1200 yards. I like the MOA reticle, holding on marks for windage and clicking up and down for elevation. Quality costs extra, but I never look back as I'm done buying a scope for long-distance shooting. Decades ago, I thought $1000 for a Leupold varmint scope was exorbitant, but I never looked back and had no regrets. This will be in the same situation. Hits the wallet at first but that fades away with results.
The Nightforce NXS is a Great scope
Love it 32x for an old guy like me helps vision correction. Put on 338 Lapua only draw back is battery replacement and brightness setting can't adjust brightness external for the reticle. And if you use flip-up lens cover on rear whole lens rotates thru power change and causes the cover to rotate with it but not a deal-breaker
Great Scope it doesn't get any better
This is one of the best scopes I've ever used. The Clarity is, without a doubt, perfect. This scope, with a little training, can make anyone a great shooter. I own two Nightforce Scopes. They are rugged and will hold up against some very tough conditions. I would highly recommend this one to anyone.
the best scope out their
Great scope Great price. I have this on my Custom Remington 700- 300wm. It doesn't matter if you're shooting a 600yard F-class competition or shooting steel at 1040yards. This scope is Crystal clear and spot on.
Was a bit reluctant
Was a bit reluctant to spend this much on a scope but all the reviews were great. Glad I did. The NXS 8-32×56 is a phenomenal scope. I was wishing that more of my scopes were like this one now.
