“Nothing is like a NightForce riflescope” Nightforce Optics on booth #20449 is showcasing its lineup of products for 2017. Brutal, abusive, pounding, torturous…these are not words you hear when describing how precision optics are treated, and that is what the Nightforce NXS 5.5-22×56 went thru when it went throught R&D, according to the company.
Every brutal impact the scope received was captured in one continuous take from five separate camera angles; no cutaways, no time gaps, no edits. A good zero and accuracy were checked with a quick three shot group at 100 yards. From there, the NXS was impacted on the bench, turrets were spun up and down and then the scope was heaved downrange. The riflescope then took another three blows to a railroad tie and was sent back up-range. After using a rock to break its fall, the NXS was mounted back up and tested on the same target. Rugged. Reliable. Repeatable.
