Re: $800.00 bucks and not a cent more

Since i am always interested in a bargain on NF scopes, I went to the above website. What impressed me more than the NF, was the NIB Leupold 6.5-20 Vari-X III M1 Tactical for $792. I don't think you will miss the extra 5X on a quality scope like this. My problem with 32X is additional mirage and smaller exit pupil. My NF 8-32 is very seldom above 22X since this is where the NP1-RR reticle works. Good luck ... Mike

Re: $800.00 bucks and not a cent more

now i am of the opinion that one should buy a decent scope, if you spend an extra $500 on a scope today you won't notice the cach missing out of your wallet in 8 months time but you will notice that you bought a chap scope every time you look through the thing. Having said that, take a look at the Zeiss Conquest line of scopes, they have a lot of features, great glass and are reasonably priced, the only disadvantage bieng the 1inch scope tube.
