Just ahead of the NRA Show this weekend comes news out of Georgia from Nightforce that they’re expanding their well-respected NXS compact line. Already offering a 2.5-10×32 scope, they’ve upped the ante by adding a 42mm front optic. Which should make seeing those early rising deer or happy hour rutting feral hogs that much easier to spot in low light conditions. Here are the details . . .
The latest addition to the extremely popular line of Nightforce NXS™ Compact riflescopes is the new 2.5-10 x 42, incorporating many features unique to the optics industry.
For many years, the Nightforce 2.5-10 x 32 NXS™ Compact—proven in the hands of the U.S. military—has been renowned for performance far beyond its size. With its larger objective lens, the new Nightforce 2.5-10 x 42 NXS™ Compact is even more effective in low light, without compromising its light weight (19 oz.–20.5 oz.) and efficient size (11.9 inches in length).
The 2.5-10 x 42 is one of the only 10x riflescopes on the market to include side parallax adjustment, adjustable from 25 yards to infinity. It incorporates Nightforce DigIllum™ digital reticle illumination technology, offering red or green settings in multiple intensities from very dim to extremely bright. DigIllum™ also includes settings specifically for use with night vision equipment.
The Nightforce PTL™ is standard, allowing instant magnification changes even while wearing gloves. Six different reticles are available, including the new IHR™ (International Hunting Reticle). The 2.5-10 x 42 is offered with .250 MOA Hi-Speed™ or .1 Mil-Radian adjustments exposed target-style configurations, or with capped, enclosed adjustments in .250 MOA only.
The 2.5-10 x 42 NXS™ Compact proves that size is no substitute for quality, providing performance that exceeds most riflescopes of any size. Its low mounting profile, versatile magnification range and streamlined proportions make it ideal for a mountain or safari rifle, and Nightforce Compacts are extremely popular for the various AR platforms.
The Nightforce 2.5-10 x 42 NXS™ Compact has a MSRP starting at $1,800. For more information, visit www.NightforceOptics.com or call 208.476.9814.
