Brutal, abusive, pounding, torturous…these are not words you hear when describing how precision optics are treated.

But that is exactly what Nightforce inflicted upon a NXS 5.5-22×56 hunting riflescope on a warm summer day in Riggins, Idaho.

Every brutal impact the scope received is captured in one continuous take from five separate camera angles; no cutaways, no time gaps, no edits.

A good zero and accuracy were checked with a quick three shot group at 100 yards.

From there, the NXS was impacted on the bench, turrets were spun up and down and then the scope was heaved downrange.

The riflescope then took another three blows to a railroad tie and was sent back up-range.

After using a rock to break it’s fall, the NXS was mounted back up and tested on the same target.

Would your Riflescope stand up to that kind of abuse? We don’t recommend you try and get disappointed.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words; we only need three.

Rugged. Reliable. Repeatable.
