Re: Nightforce NXS 5.5-22x56
The Badgers I bought were 'medium high'. They have low , medium, medium high, & high. The mediums would have been high enough (they have the specs in .001") but I needed a little bit of room for a mirage band under the objective. I also clamped a little bubble level onto the base under the scope to reduce cant - bought it from Brownell's & it works like a charm.
My 'smith had used QRWs on RUMs & 50BMGs, but the cross bolt that the lever tightens is surprisingly small. Since my mishap, I've heard of others with the same malfunction. The MkIVs or Badgers will serve you well, IMHO.
