This is a tremendous tactical solution for military and special law enforcement applications.
Broad and powerful magnification combined with the large field of view,
four inches of eye relief and 100 M.O.A. elevation travel make the
5.5-22x56 NXS the most advanced field tactical scope ever produced.
It remains the benchmark by which all other scopes are measured.
Originally engineered for military .50 BMG, .338 Lapua and other long range applications, the 5.5-22x56 NXS is the first variable power scope in this magnification range to feature 100 M.O.A. elevation travel. This range of magnification and internal adjustment allow most .50 BMGs to achieve the 2,000 yard mark with accuracy.

NIGHTFORCE PRECISION OPTICS—dedicated to producing the world's finest riflescopes—presents NXS.
Nightforce research and development teams design technically advanced riflescopes to
perform in uncompromising situations.
EXTENSIVE RESEARCH AND TESTING, focused on building the ultimate instrument for the application, has yielded standards in manufacturing and quality control, never before seen in the riflescope industry. Every Nightforce scope receives 100% individual inspection and must pass vigorous testing prior to shipment. Riflescope performance, achieved through cutting edge technology and advanced mechanical designs is unparalleled in the industry.
SUPERIOR OPTICAL PERFORMANCE – Begin with the production of lens elements from high density optical glass with precise refractive and dispersion qualities. Lenses are then shaped and polished using state-of-the-art equipment. The riflescope's objective lens dictates resolution, light management and exit pupil size. To best maximize these parameters every Nightforce objective lens assembly consists of a triple element design like those found in extremely high quality telescopes. This type of lens system focuses light rays more precisely for exceptional image clarity while also providing superior color correction. Optical elements are further optimized by vacuum lens coating process. All air-to-glass surfaces receive a proprietary four-layer broadband multi-coating.
MASTERING LOW LIGHT – This improves lens efficiency by eliminating surface reflections, improving light management and image contrast. Nightforce's unique coating materials maintain tolerance limits of 1/4 wave deposition or 0.000005" and exceed the toughest Mil-Spec abrasion test. All this enables Nightforce designers to stretch the limits of light management in the development of optical systems, while maintaining consistently superior optics.
Mounting System- Nightforce custom tapered bases are CNC machined from a single steel billet. Available for Remington, Winchester, Weatherby and Savage actions. 30 mm Rings and bases are engineered to accommodate the height of NXS scopes. The one-piece and two-piece Pickatinny (1913 Mil. Spec.) bases and rings and can increase internal adjustment of the scope by 40 M.O.A. and 20 M.O.A. respectively.
Torque Wrench -This precision preset Torque Wrench applies exactly 65 inch pounds. The Torque Wrench ensures repeated return-to-zero when removal and re-installation of the riflescope becomes necessary. Avoid stress and wear of parts while achieving consistent placement of the riflescope. The Torque Wrench also applies the optimum torque to set guard screws on the rifle. Unlike many torque wrenches, this tool locks in the reverse direction for easy removal of fasteners. The Torque Wrench is a vitally important tool in the shop as well as the field.
Nightforce riflescopes provide the essential tool required for those demanding total performance.
