I bought a 32 NXS in the last 12 months. Its glass is way superior to my older 22 power NXS and 15 power NXS.
The glass is now German I believe.

4 of those shots went into 1 1/4" at 500 yards. I either pulled the 5th or the 3:30 mirage got me. But anyway, I didn't shoot those 4 into 1/4 moa at 500 yards by aiming at a 2" orange dot. I centered up on the orange and black diamond in the center.

Bottom line is if you are having trouble seeing small aim points at 500 yards with a 22X NXS something is wrong.

Good luck with what ever you choose.

Wow that would be great!

I actually have a cheap 32x on a 22-250 that does really well for me...and its only a $100 pc.

I'm pretty sure Nightforce has always used Japanese glass...But don't hold me to that, b/c they very well could have recently switched, without me hearing about it.

I use both 22x & 32x NXS, and I don't see an advantage in one over another except I have more power available in 32x. As far as adjustment limit, this is commonly managed with 20moa bias in rings or base.

NF glass is acceptable(nothing impressive), and is the same as Leupold's.
