Nightforce is known for their top end long range precision scopes. The company also makes optics for the AR market. This year, they’ve introduced two variable magnification first focal plane optics for “America’s Rifle” . . .
Their ATACR and the NX8 are sick. At an credit card-melting $2,744 the ATACR (Advanced Tactical Rifle Scope) is everything you’d want in an AR scope and MOA. Here’s the 411 via their website:
The ultimate in low-power, high-zoom ratio riflescopes, the Nightforce ATACR 1-8x24mm features pristine ED glass, the intelligent and fast FC-DM daylight-illuminated reticle, low-profile adjustments and legendary bomb-proof reliability. The ATACR 8x has a field of view at 1x equivalent to iron sights – but with vast improvements.
The FC-DM reticle’s daylight-visible adjustments allow for extremely rapid engagement at 1x with the ability to zoom to up to 8x to make longer shots – or help locate and identify targets.
This reticle also provides precise hold and hold-off points. This reticle coupled with ED glass and a first focal plane construction allows the ATACR 8x to combine all of the features of a fast-acquisition reflex sight with the identification and precision of a high-end riflescope.
The Nightforce NX8 is the more affordable option. The glass isn’t quite as good but the new AR optic offers some of the same features as the ATACR with an MOA or Mil reticle. For a grand less ($1,715).
TTAG has requested a T&E sample. Oh yes. Yes we have.
