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?

Re: gunwerks G7vs NXS

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.

Re: gunwerks G7vs NXS

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

Re: gunwerks G7vs NXS

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.
