Nightforce C600: NX8 - 1-8x24mm F1 - ZeroStop - .5 MOA Capped Windage PTL FC MOA

(2 reviews) Write a Review


The NX8 1-8x24 F1 is a class leading, compact and lightweight riflescope optimized for short to mid-range shooting. At only 8.75“ in length and 17 ounces, this riflescope adds minimal size and weight but delivers superior optics and trusted Nightforce performance to any rifle. 


With the daylight visible center red dot users can engage targets with speed like a red-dot sight, but as targets increase in distance the intelligent FC-Mil and FC-MOA first focal plane reticles provide precise hold points. For those preferring to dial for long shots, the ZeroStop elevation adjustment allows for a rapid and positive return to zero. Adjustments are a true .2 Mil-Radian or .50 MOA. To aid in fast magnification adjustments, a built-in Power Throw Lever (PTL) is included.

    Excellent Optics in a small, light package

    Posted by Erik on Mar 15th 2018

    This is a real winner of an optic. Extremely compact, light and the dot is definitely daylight bright. It’s highest illumination setting is brighter than my Aimpoint T-2. Nightforce definitely nailed the illumination.

    The eye box is a bit tight, especially at 8x. But that is due to the physics of a FFP scope of its length. This is a small trade off to me as I am looking for a rugged, compact, light, and daylight bright scope. This is all of those things.

    It is very, very, very close to true 1x. Much more so than it’s 1-4x predecessor. But there is an extremely, ever so slight, wobble to my eye, therefore I believe it is likely closer to 1.02x.

    Glass is very clear and seems to be just a touch more crisp than my NXS 1-4x.

    Reticle is fantastic. At 1x it is truly a red dot. At 8x the reticle is larger, but still able to make precise shots on all but the smallest and furthest of targets.

    Turrets, knobs, and zoom ring are all solid, tactile, and precise. Overall fit and finish is excellent.

    I mounted this on a 14.5” barreled, 5.56 AR-15 and it is absolutely perfect.

    Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a compact, light, and daylight bright optic.
