Damn, Randy, don't go say'n stuff like that--I just bought a Nightforce in 5.5 x 22 x 56. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] Do you know anything about specs, such as weight, or reticle details?

Zeiss will offer a 6 x 24 x 56 German made based on a unit being produced now for Military use that has a 70 mm objective.
Price unknown but I can't wait to see it.

Re: New rifle scope due in Feb

Hey, I'll buy the Nightforce off you if you have the NP-R2 reticle. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] I'm selling my Swarovski 6-24x50mm with the TDS reticle and target turrets to get another Nightforce for my AR-10T. Optically, I think the Swarovski has a slight edge, but I like the way the Nightforce looks on my AR-10 better and I like the Nightforces reticle better.

<puts his hand up like Reagan used to do> Thank you, thank you, but I think I might just want to hang on to that nightforce. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] I like the fact that it's a little tougher than the average scope, escpcially since there's been more times than one that I've taken a tumble down a hill while out playing Elmer Fud. To be honest, I'm currently stuck down in the sunshine state, and am getting robbed of opportunities to use it!! <tugs on his hair> I wish tehy'd up the limit on gang members--I seriously need more practice!

Re: New rifle scope due in Feb

Is a 70mm obj more than the 30mm tube can use as the 50mm is to the 1" tubes? Assuming it does have a 30mm tube I guess? Do they supply rings with it? [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]
