I don't think anybody really knows exactly. IIRC, Marc's was #109 and that's the highest number I know of to have a failure. My current one is 130 something which I believe was fairly early second batch, made in 2007.

What exactly broke in those first batch scopes You've mentioned?
I think it was a washer that holds one of the lenses or something. All the failures had the same symptoms.

More scope pics please! Especially magnification ring and eyepiece and turrets from different sides, mainly parallax adjustment! PLEASE!
Heh, OK. You asked for it!!!














I don't think I've taken a good one of the parallax adjustment but I could. One note on it, I find the parallax adjustment to work better/be easier to use than other sidefocus scopes I've used, including other IORs.

    Jon,

    Please post how you did the turrets. I get questions all the time how to do what you did, with the quasi-BDC knob.

    Thanks,


    Scott

    IOR

    I have gotten to the point where I only want Nightforce, USO, and S&B. There are other optic brands I own, but they get little use or play. Presently I have one optic each from USO, NF, and SB.

    NF is IMO the one that gives a lot of durability/performance/value for the dollar spent.

    Now that I have these optics I don't want anything else, and I'mextremely happy I went the way I did.

    Although the IOR (Schott) glass is wonderful, I would choose durability over resolution any day of the week.

    Jon A - Thanks for the pics!
    I've also noticed the change of the turret marks. Can You tell how it's done?

    One more thing - according to other thread here it is rare to find the distance marks on the side paralax adjustment to be spot on. They rather tend to be off quite a lot. Was it the same with Your IOR?

    Scott, I hope You know of a way to buy a scope in the US and have it sent abroad ? Do You? I'm from Poland, and though PL is a NATO member and all but nevertheless most shops deny to send optics outside US due to some federal regulations. And I'm not a terrorist! I'm a lawyer - perhaps too close to a plain crook !?

    Been looking at IOR scopes for longest time. I have a 6x284 12LB rifle. I'm not going to war,not going to drop my rifle. Shoot it off bench in load evaluation and Bi-pod or shooting stick in the field. Is the IOR going to fall apart on me? Unsure if I should go with FFP or SFP ? Thinking about the 6x24x50MM Tactical for the cool effect,or maybe the 3x18x42MM. I don't expect to ever shoot farther then 500yards? I've looked through Zeiss Conquest I felt those were better optics then Nightforce NXS. What say yee?
