Re: NF NXS prices...

Kirby , are you dead set on the NF ? IOR has a 6-24x50 Tactical you can get one from Brownells for under a grand and from what I have seen the IOR is just as brigh and clear as the one NF i looked through , I diden't have the chance to do a side by side but those IOR's are realy clear and bright. and their lighter than the NF

Re: NF NXS prices...

Thanks for all the replies, when it comes time to order I feel I have the best price options around. Will probably order in late this summer. Need to get the cash built up, building to many new wildcats [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]!!!

Again thanks all for the replies, I truely appreciate your experience.

JDJones,

You are correct on the IOR and no I have not counted them out. I have heard a few bad storied about their customer support if anything does go wrong with the scopes but scope quality wise is great.

I will be looking hard at the IOR also.

Brownells does not list them anymore as I suspect they did not sell to well. You know how us cheap gunsmiths can be [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]!!!

Thanks and good recommendation. They are a much more compact scope then the big NXS but the new 50 mm objective is getting the NF more user friendly for the big game hunters.

Re: NF NXS prices...

The thing that kills IOR is this PRICK named Val that is the sole importer of IOR. Red mountain optics sells them and Joe is one of the best guys I have ever known. It's sad this LOSER (Val) that imports them has anything to do w/IOR. He should be Fired immediately.

Re: NF NXS prices...

Couple of things,
First I believe the IOR Tacticals are now all 2nd Focal plane reticles not first anymore..

Secondly, what problems have you guys had with Val, I've called him a few times and he's been fairly pleasant. Although he hasn't returned my last call..

Kirby,

They have the 5.5-22 NXS for $1250 up here locally. $1150 sounds like a real good price.

[/ QUOTE ]I had a reply from IOR in Romania about 12 months ago where they said ALL scopes being made (for Valdada?) are 2nd FP. They'll happily do you a 1st FP but you need to order a batch.
