gunwerks G7vs NXS

Ok, if night force is now making a new scope for gun works, what exactly is different between the nxs and the gunwerks version. Is there any thing that makes there supposably better?

    The paralax knob is reduced in size on the g7.
    The windage turret is smaller and has a removable dust cap.
    The elevation turret is a 20moa in one turn, w/zero stop, and will come with moa turret, and a bdc turret when you send in your collected data.
    No illumination.
    second run will have a new reticle design. (first run is npr1)http://www.gseven.com/news/First-ani...-5-22-rifle-sc

    They are made to same spec as a NXS and say; NF, G-7 on the side.
    The only weight savings apears to be the reduced wind and para knobs over a NXS

    So why does it cost the same as a NXS even though it has no illumination? It would be a great buy if it cost $1200 or less. Right now it seems like an overpriced downsized NXS model.

    I think if you look at the same features the price is right on with a current zero stop equiped NXS, with 20 moa rev dial. The difference is ones Ill, and one you get a bdc knob set up for your balistics.

    I personally have never shot with my reticle turned on so I don't mind giving that up for a bdc.

    Ya, but without the illumination it should be cheaper, not the same price. You can get a BDC for $100 from Kenton Industries

    It started out with a lower MAP price, but other dealers were concerned about a lower MAP than the NXS 5.5-22. We included the BDC to make up the value.

    Do you really think $1200 without illumination? $664 for lighted reticle? The low pro windage is a big change in product offering, and would be considered an upgrade item.

    Illumination is coming soon. The low pro parallax may be a unique item soon, so if anyone is interested they should pick one up.
