Anyone play with this scope with the smaller 50mm objective? I am looking to get another extreme range big game scope and this one looks very good for quality, verticle adjustment and reticle choice, NP-R2 or MLR.
Just wondering how the smaller objective has effected things as far as low light shooting.
I suspect not much if any but wanted to ask out there and see if there is anyone using this scope with the smaller objective.
Hell, for a big game scope, I wish they had dropped to a 44mm to be honest. Their glass is good enough to handle the smaller objective in my opinion and would make an even better choice for a extreme duty hunting scope.
Thanks for your opinions.

Hi Kirby, i've played with one a little. To be honest i see absolutely no need for the 56mm objective on any scope (much less the 72mm on some that are available today). The 50mm is plenty large enough. Optimal would be a 44mm. But 50's are plenty available. The NXS isn't a S&B PMII but the 50mm one is IMHO the most sensible of the NXS range. the 50mm give optimal light gathering(if you want to call it that) but it doesn't nessesitate riduculously high mounting. You won't find anything bigger than a 50mm on my rifles and i'm hunting pigs at night.
I bought my wife the 3.5x15 - 50 and she loves it. I have the 8X32 - 56 and if I coudl afford it and actually that is what is keeping the rifles here I built from shooting is I wont put anything else on them now that I have had night Force.
I can also tell you that they are true 1/4 (.2617)moa clicks. Tracking is perfect, clarity is supurb maybe a little better that Saworvski IMO, and they are built Ford tuff lol.
