Nathan at Straight Shot Gunsmithing did the fluting. He does great work.

Haha the NXS I took off there was an older model without hs or zero stop. It is sold already though. I will hold on to my NXS scopes with hs and zero stop.

I agree that it is heavy. It was not designed as a hunting scope. This is my coyote rifle and I probably put on more miles doing that than big game hunting just due to the fact you can hunt then when ever. My big game rifle wears a March 2.5_25x42 @ 18 oz. This scope is every bit as good as the NXS line if not better especially when you consider weight.

Re: Beast!!!

So far the scope is awesome. I really like the .5 MOA turret. Tracking is great for the limited testing I did that way. I shot a .303 5 shoot group with it and the 243 it's on. Top end magnification is really really clear. First round hit with it at 726 yards. Couldn't be happier.

Nathan also did a rifle for me with very similar fluting, but different colors.
