I have looked through them and for the price was pretty unimpressed with the glass. I know lots love them, maybe my eyes don't like them, but compared to a lot of other scopes I looked through on the same day, I just wasn't impressed.
I believe it is the total package. The best I haveused as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on .25 MOA and always return to zero. The parralex adjustment works great, they have 100 moa of elevation and a good selection of reticles , one for every use. The option of Mils or MOA. Illuminated reicle, and good glass. I have owned many many different brands and I will say that I have seen some clearer but those scopes were all lesser power too. I would give a slight advantage to IOR glass with both scopes on 22X but not enough to sway me. Plus I leave my scopes on 22X most of th time. When I get behind a NXS I have a full view that some don't have.
I am just looking at options but I truely believe that the NXS is the best value for ascope that has everything I need.
If you didn't like the one you looked through I would encouage you to look through another. Make sure it is the NXS model as I don't know about the less expensive Nightforce BR models.
