That's just the NXS line I presume your talking about. The Target models are made and assembled in Japan from what I have been told.

DC..
.. That's the very model that lays claim to "Made in the USA" at the D&B site I linked to earlier.. Funnier still I didn't see that label over on the NXS page..
D&B NXS
..The Asian manufacture may 'splain away some of the pricing discrepency..
.. While the dookey keeps getting deeper, I guess the proof is in the puddin' and the question still stands.. Does it give enough performance enhancement to warrant the extra $300-$700.??
(Hint:"Just because it's what I wanted" IS a valid reason to purchase an item.. If you earned your $1.3K , blow it as you see fit.!!) JiNC

Re: Nightforce problems.???

Good luck with the new scope whatever you choose. For me it came down to the etched/lighted R2 reticle not being available in anything Leopold. A stouter construction with a lower 5.5 power setting played a part too. Features weren't free, but worth it to me for many reasons. I've blown $500 on many occasions for alot less, but sometimes it's the price.

FatBoy,

tracking problems aren't something I'd expect from them either, or accept. They'll make it right I'm sure. Good luck.

I've checked three other 5.5-22 NXS's too, all had 89moa vertical too. I see them advertised at Bill Shehanes website as only having 95moa, not sure why though.

S1'

anything else you could add about how to use the R2 reticle would be very cool [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] .
