Optics product of the year – over £1,000 – Nightforce NX8 Rifle Scope 

The NX8 scope family evolved from the NXS series and has proven to be a market-leading product in many ways. The variety of this series will cater for all stalking enthusiasts whether you are spotting muntjac in Hampshire or going for a red stag in the Highlands. 

The scope that stands out most in the family is the NX8 2.5-20×50 F1. While it has certainly been possible to build a riflescope with a multiple of eight, building one that delivers exceptional clarity, resolution and brightness at every setting, across the entire magnification range, has been a major obstacle for many optical engineers. However the NX8 2.5-20×50 F1 gives you one riflescope that will rule virtually any shooting environment, anywhere on Earth, at almost any distance.
