Meopta vs. Nightforce??

I just got through talking with 2 very well known Long range shooters and they had just tested the New Sightron III 8-32 vs. Nightforce and the New Sightron came out on top clearer to the edges etc. I also have heard that NFS has had some QC problems and in fact that US optics are the choice now for the SF snipers. I hope this helps you out I own neither so I can't help anymore than this information.

The NF is a safe bet for the money, and you will be able to dial in long range. The Meopta won't get you too far.

I agree with Scott.

Nightforce scopes are one of the best scope on the market for the price!

I think nightforce sets there prices, so most people are going to be pretty close on price.

I own 2 of the Meopta 4X16X44 scopes and I own 3 3.5X15X50 NXS and one 5.5X22X50 and one 2.5X10X24. Except for the 2.5X10X24 the NXS IIMHO has the best view and the best turrets. If you are in the market for a true long range tough dependable scope with an excelent warrenty then Nightforce with out a dought.

Nightforce has a Special Ops. contract, but they are not the only scope the Special Forces use.

This scope was in the theater of operation when an AK-47 bullet completely pentrated the tube. The soldger taped over the holes and used the scope for 3 more days. He stated that the scope still shot to with in 1/4 MOA at 500 Meters. IMHO NXS scopes are well worth the cost of admission

from all the input i'm getting from various sources, the nightforce is the ultimate "bomb"....everyone that has one one just goes on and on about them, and those who have used them want to buy one ! i haven't had one single person speak pooly of the nightforce. what i seem to hearing the most of is that they trully excel at longer distances. it's almost like the further the better..! does this input seem to match the opinions of those of you lucky enough to have/own one? i decided today that i don't know how i've lived this long w/o one, and i will have one. (after i take the family to gulf shores, alabama on vacation. i can talk my way out of most anything, but bringing home a $1200-$1400 scope 5-6 days before we leave would put me to the ultimate test.

if anyone has a nxs 3.5-15x50mm or even the 5.5x22x50mm for sale or trade(for nice stuff, not junk) please let me know. Thanks tom (hopt)
