Nightforce Optics has announced that certain ATAXCR and NX8 scopes are available in a new Dark Earth color. In addition to the new Dark Earth-colored optics, the Nightforce UltraMount has multiple configuration options in Dark Earth.

Right now, the Nightforce Optics website shows the NX8 1-8X 24 mm F1 capped riflescope, along with the ATACR 1-8X 24 mm F1 riflescope that can be purchased in Dark Earth. Additionally, two UltraMount sizes are available in the Dark Earth color, along with X-Treme-Duty scope rings and Nightforce’s improved RAP-I rail accessory platform.

Along with capped elevation adjustment, the first-focal-plane Nightforce NX8 1-8X 24 mm F1 optic includes the FC-DMx reticle, which has a 0.7-MOA center dot and a larger outer circle. The ATACR 1-8X 24 mm F1 riflescope is “designed and built to be the ultimate low-power variable riflescope” and is equipped with the intelligent FC-DMx first-focal-plane reticle. With 8X magnification in compact packages, both scopes are ideal for several shooting disciplines and more color options are always welcome.
