    There's a used nightforce on consignment at the local gun store. I'm not familiar with nightforce so don't know the model. The power was 3.5-15. The reticle is a grid. Glass was awesome. Asking price 1k. If you're interested I'll give you contact info.

    Been tryin' to keep it a secret so nobody'll buy it before I can. But, might's well be realistic.
