SOCOM’s New LPVO: Nightforce ATACR 1-8.

The Nightforce ATACR 1-8x was the winner of the SOCOM solicited variable carbine optic solicitation. The LPVO category continues to gain ground in a few key categories, weight, clarity, durability, and affordability.

Now… I know the price tag isn’t low. Affordable is a relative term. But now that I am using glass in this category.. There is no comparison, there is no “just as good”

We can talk about good and we can talk about better. My ACOG is a great optic, no plans to change it. This type of system is starting to plant itself firmly in a new operational category.

Sport Optics has a few by the way.
