+1 on the NF ATACR - Honestly, I bought mine a few weeks ago and don't have it mounted yet due to my gun being at the gunsmith to get the barrel coated. I got a used NXS around the same time, but sent it off to Idaho to get a matching MOAR reticle put in it before I could do any comparisons between the two, but the ATACR is suppose to have a little better glass and it has a bigger tube. If you have set aside that much money you might as well get it over the NXS. These are my first NF scopes so my opinion is probably worthless compared to others, but everything you hear is good about them from almost everyone. With the kind of money you've set aside some would tell you to put in a few dollars more and go with S&B. I've personally never looked through one, but they sound like they are flawless. I however, have little interest in one due to them not having a MOA version. It's what I'm use to so it's what I'll stick with. I will say that if you prefer mils to moa, you should probably check them out before you shell out your money. Also, I bought the NF ultralight rings to accompany my ATACR and just today ordered the flatline ops
anti-cant device via the responses to a thread I posted on here regarding which one to get. Hope this helps, wish I were able to give you some more information based off of my experience with it, but I simply can't yet. Best of luck.
