I've got 2 Zeiss Conquests 4.5x14s and I'm happy with the glass, unhappy with the eye relief.

Don't know anything about US Optics. Swaro and SB are probably priced out of my range. Unless they are on par with what a new G7 would run me.

May want to look at a Night Force w/o the G7 badge. May save you a little money. Though you said money is not a problem. If I could get an optic w/o consequence, then it would definitely be a S&B or Premier.

When you are talking those...."Don't know anything about US Optics. Swaro and SB"....your talking lots of loot!!! The 5-25 Swaro is about the cheapest at $1500...

Of the 3.....NF. Why? because they are VERY sturdy and reliable. I've seen better glass but as an overall working system, they rock.

Everything here has a gold ring except my pistol scopes but I'd take a S&B and sell it for a pair of Golden Rings....
