Re: Nightforce Problem?

If the locking nut is tight on the rear lens it will not wiggle. If you can move the rear ocular housing with this nut tight then something is not right.

    There's not a locking nut on a Nightforce. The rear lens turns with the power adjustment.

    Call or Send it to Night Force and let them take a look at it. I've never heard a corss word about dealing with them.

    I have a Night Force and love it but have never had to deal with them regarding repairs.

    While shooting the groups, are you changing the power in between shots in a group?

    No, but I'm probably changing the scope power between range sessions due to using it for hunting.

    Definitely call Nightforce. There should be no such movement, even when changing power settings. Also, even stocks with aluminum bedding blocks should be bedded for best results. You can conceivably shoot the throat out of a factory barreled 7mm RUM barrel in 400-500 rounds, so you want to give it every opportunity to dial in with as few rounds as possible.

    On a NXS model there is a lock ring between the power adjustment and the rear lens to lock the rear lens after adjusting the focus.
