NXS 3.5-15x50 with bullet holeJUST ABOUT BULLETPROOF

Originally developed for use on military small arms, it offers an extremely versatile magnification range providing outstanding mid- to long-range capability.

 The NXS™ 3.5-15x50 to the left was shot completely through by an enemy 7.62x39 round fired at a U.S. soldier…yet the unharmed serviceman used it for the next three days, completing his mission. The 3.5-15x50 adapts comfortably to a variety of rifle platforms, survives abuse that would destroy lesser riflescopes, and is impervious to heavy recoil. And, apparently, to enemy bullets.

    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.
