Nightforce Optics Adds to the ATACR Series
New ATACR 1-8x24 F1 Delivers Precision Near and Far

Lavonia, GA, U.S. - Nightforce® Optics, leading manufacturer and marketer of premium sport optics and related products including riflescopes, spotting scopes, and accessories, today unveiled their latest Advanced Tactical Riflescope, (known as ATACR™), in a 1-8 power with a 24mm objective lens. The new ATACR™ 1-8x24 F1 is engineered and built as the ultimate low-power variable riflescope. It features a Nightforce intelligent first focal plane reticle, pristine ED glass, bright daylight illumination, and is presented in a lightweight, compact package.

"We originally designed the Nightforce ATACR first focal plane riflescopes for our military customers," said Nightforce Director of Sales and Marketing, Gordon Myers. "They remain the foundation for our MilSpec riflescopes to this day. ATACR optics are well-received by long range shooters, because we combine battle-proven ruggedness with high quality optics and functionality. Our new ATACR 1-8x24 F1 incorporates all the advantages of the ATACR family in one of the most compact and adaptable 1-8 power optics available in the marketplace today," he added.

"The new ATACR 8 power characterizes the Nightforce theme of 'Rugged, Reliable, Repeatable™", said Alan Stilwell, North America Sales Manager. "At dusk, dawn, or mid-day; whether you're shooting close-quarters or long-range distances, the versatile ATACR 1-8x24 F1 delivers a superior field of view and is exceptionally precise. This riflescope's bomb-proof reliability, extremely low-profile adjustments, and this model's intelligent FC-DM® reticle, is robust enough to partner up with any designated marksman or competitor."

Measuring a mere 10 inches in length and weighing 21 ounces, the ATACR 1-8x24 F1 is rich with standard mission-critical features including a daylight-visible, center red dot for rapid engagements, and multi-coated ED glass that furnishes superb light transmission, brilliant images, and exceptional color contrast. The 8x zoom helps locate, identify, and engage targets at maximum effective ranges. While the low-profile, true .1 Mil-Radian adjustments are capped to prevent accidental adjustment.

"We united legendary Nightforce toughness with precision-engineered components and high-tech expertise, resulting in the most technologically advanced optic

Nightforce has ever offered," according to Stilwell. "The new ATACR 1-8x24 F1 is mechanically unrivaled to withstand a lifetime of harsh recoil so that years from now, your scope will be as precise as the day it was new," he said.
