Re: New Nightforce NXS

I have to say that the PM II that I use are excellent. The dialling system is first rate 13 mils of elevation on one dial of the turret. You dont get lost even in the dark.The new Nightforce looks attractive though I would like to give something a go with more magnification but it would have to have mil dialling I dont think I could go back to moa now

Re: New Nightforce NXS

Ah lapmag, a man who agrees with my ranging philosophy.. yep the S&B PMII's are great, ive a 3-12x50, and 1/10th mil (1cm@100m) clicks is the way to go. I was talking to Chris Thomas from Prem ret last weekend and he said that the State dept ban on mildot export was a misprint and was mostly bieng ignored as far as one of shipments was concerned by most companies.
The 5.5-22x50 NXS with milrad divisions will be available in August, but better get an order in now if you want one, and they aren't sure if to stick with 50mm Obj or go 56mm, i told em they should go 42mm, as no one needs a 56, makes stock cheek weld a pain and you give more of a target when you have a bigger scope, for most applications a 42mm would be just fine. I've been badgering S&B for 5 years now to produce a 4-16x42PMII, they have made a run or prototypes and they are currently on trail with the US marines i do believe.
If you are after a reasonably priced scope, look at the Zeis conquest 4-14x44 or 4-14x50.
the NXS has second focal plane (unless im muddles), anyway, the reticle is the same size for use in ranging at any magnification..
