The HST has 20 min per rev or 10 mil per rev vs. the 10 moa and 5 mils on the previous scopes. Just NF trying to compete w/some of the higher end scopes w/tons of adj in one rev. Should be a good deal. They are $1864 shipped to your door.

Re: Nightforce NXS 50mm vs 56mm

I've got a NF w/ the 56mm Objective, and the low light capability is absolutely wonderful.........I've never looked through anything better during the last few minutes of legal shooting light.

But, If I were to do it again.......I would probably go with the 50mm. The 56 is really a huge heavy scope. At the time I got mine, 56 was all that they made.

I recently bought a Leupold VX7 with the 50MM objective, I am really impressed with the clarity and generous eyebox. I haven't yet compared it to the NF 56mm during twilight hours though.?.?
