Nightforce NXS 5.5-22x50 Riflescope

January 2020
Author: Austin Atkinson

While the original design was influenced by the U.S. military's needs for extreme long-range shooting and hard target interdiction, the NXSTM 5.5-22x has been a favorite of sportsmen and law enforcement as well. Both 5.5-22 Nightforce NXS models provide a broad magnification range, excellent eye relief, and 100 MOA of elevation travel. These characteristics, combined with the extreme ruggedness and reliability of every Nightforce riflescope, make them ideal for even the largest calibers.

The slim profile of the NXS 5.5-22x50 makes it easily adaptable to a wide range of mounting systems. Its superb resolution at high magnification opens an entirely new world of extended range shooting for the accomplished marksman.

"When it came time to rebarrel our 28 Nosler and work up a new load on one of our favorite long-range hunting rifles, we knew the Nightforce NXS scope would be a top choice to make this weapon even more deadly in the field. The 5.5-22 scope has excellent glass clarity and true, crisp adjustments that make it easy for any experienced hunter to dial a precise elevation value and acquire the target quickly.

Even though we try to protect our hunting rifles in the field, there's always a chance of the riflescope taking a beating while on a hunt. Our confidence in the tracking, reticle, and performance of this Nightforce scope is second to none. When it's time to make that long-range shot, dial to 22x and send it!" - Austin Atkinson, Hunt Advisor
