Re: Zeiss vs. Nightforce

Roy, I feel your pain.

First NF I bought I cussed, yelled, turned red in the face, had steam blowing out my ears and practically disassembled the entire thing before my wife came downstairs to my man room and asked me what my problem was because she could hear cussing and yelling upstairs. I told her my new high dollar NF scope was a POS and didn't work right. She suggested I read the instructions and within seconds it was lighted. I really hate it when she does that.

    Read the directions? You didn't!

    (OK, I admit I once read directions too. I found I didn't like being told how to do things then I got married.)

    If you decide to buy a Nightforce, I would talk to Mike at CS TACTICAL . His customer service is top notch and always kept me updated with my order by phone and email. He is the kind of guy if he messes up, he will let you know immediately and make it right. Straight shooter.

    Is the Nightforce NXS worth double the Zeiss? To me it is.....but not if 600 yards is your max limit. Where the Nightforce really shines is at the longer ranges. If 600 yards is your max, then the Zeiss will probably get the job done for you; and you would not appreciate the difference provided by the additional $800 spent for the Nightforce unit.

    why get something that limits you, trust me first your goal is 600 then 8 then 1000 then after that 1200 and so on and so on. Id get the night force and get a 5.5-22 or 8-32. You will have a hard time out growing one of them. plus there bullet proof, had 4 for going on ten years and have never had a lick of problems. Im not saying im a professional here but in my opinion nightforces are well worth the cash.

    I have a ziess 6.5 x 20 x 50 nice scope good glass decent turrets but limited in the internal adjustment (no problem for 600) I also have a 6500 bushnell again decent more magnification then the ziess but I feel the ziess is a better scope , but in the end I still bought a nightforce I do not think the glass is any better then the n/f but the n/f has way more adjustment nicer turrets and way more robust.
