Nightforce 2.5-10-32

Has any one had any hands on with this scope? I'm needing a scope for my 223 bolt gun, and my use it on my 243.

Goodness, Really? never heard of Nightforce? Probably the very best scope out there before you jump to the $2000 US optics/Schmidt and bender class stuff.

As far as the 2.5x10-32mm NXS. I have one on my very accurate 300WM that Kevin Cram built me and have no problem hitting MOA size targets at 700 yards @ 10x. Also like the fact that it is light weight. Not sure what else you are asking for, your question was not very specific.

The 223 mostly paper punching, and some P-Dogging. The 243 coyotes maybe deer. I'm not a big fan of the 50mm objectives. I like the 42 -44mm objectives better, but that is just me. With the 32mm how is the clarity?

Re: Nightforce 2.5-10-32

I just purchased one myself. I've been using NF since the mid 1990's.
(before the NXS models were available)

Thought it would be just the ticket on an AR-15 varmint/predator rifle.

Usually NF is problem free, but there are two issues w/ mine.
The reticle focus/eyepiece adjustment is not right, was initially very tight and hard to move. Suddenly got very very easy to move and when the daytime reticle is in focus, the illuminated one is not.

The windage dial isn't callibrated for the internal clicks, 5 "clicks" for every 4 marks.?? Supposed to be .25 Moa per click/mark.
Probably will be sending mine back to NF tomorrow for repair/replacement.
But like I said earlier, usually they are problem free. Very happy with my older one. the only drawback they have is the weight, the 2.5-10X32 should address that though.

Hopefully, NF isn't slacking on QC because they are getting more popular and "Bigger". Seems like that happens alot anymore, companies get big and product quality goes down. Alot of them don't even worry about it until they start seeing their customers go elsewhere.

Re: Nightforce 2.5-10-32

Gary, I looked through a Nightforce 2.5-10x32 a few weeks ago and boy was I impressed with the clarity. I am now trying to decide whether to go with the 32mm or 24mm model for my Model 7. I have a Leupold Mark 4 3.5-10 and I thought it was the clearest scope I ever looked through and the Nightforce puts it to shame! Tom
