Nightforce 2.5-10x42 .... This is what was missing !!

Got the new NF 2.5-10x42 Compact mounted up and trying it out. What a great compact scope !

Running it on a GA Precision Extreme Hunter in 6.5 SAUM

I have ran the 32mm version for years with no complaints at all. The new 42mm is loaded with great upgrades for sure.... Of course the new 42mm front objective, Side parallax adjustment, power throw lever, New Digillum digital illumination with choice of red or green illumination and NV compatible, high speed turrets, Zero Stop... just to name some.

Awesome! That will be a nice option for a lighter weight rifle. I love my 5.5-22, but its 32oz!

ya, same here... run all NXS scopes on other rifles and this Compact really fits the void for the lighter platform and same repeatability and reliability !
