The highest magnification riflescope we make, the 12-42×56 provides optical resolution comparable to the highest quality spotting scopes and unsurpassed clarity across the entire magnification range. The 56mm objective is specifically designed for optimum resolution under all conditions—its resolution outstanding even at the highest magnification. In the past, accomplished long-range shooters could only wish for a scope equal to the capability of modern flat- shooting calibers. The question now becomes, does your rifle measure up to the NXS™ 12-42x56?
