NXS 5.5-22

Our most proven long-range riflescope. Its 56mm objective lens provides maximum clarity and resolution across the entire magnification range.

The wide magnification factor of our 5.5-22 series allows precision accuracy at the longest ranges, yet at 5.5 power remains highly effective for shots at close ranges.

Nightforce was the first company committed to perfecting extreme magnification variable power scopes. Our years of experience perfecting long-range optics is evident in every scope we build.

    With 1 MOA elevation and windage markings, more accurate range finding and hold-offs are possible on smaller targets at longer ranges. Combined with a floating center crosshair, this makes for a reticle extremely fast and easy to use in the field. MOAR™ reticles in Nightforce 5.5-22x and 8-32x NXS models have a 20 MOA scale below centerline (at left). Reticles in 3.5-15x models have an additional 10 MOA scale below center.
