I can see it now, a smaller version of those door knob covers for child proofing your home.

Chain, I don't see you having a problem. If you do, you can blame it on me I don't mind.

Is there any reason you couldn't have an open top (convertible) scabbard made? Short of a horse rolling over on your rifle what else could you do to your scope that a NF wouldn't already hold up to.

light bulbIf all else fails you could grind the knobby things off your turrets. Then you'd need vise grips to dial a shot.

I like the grinding idea. You sound like one of my sub contractors. How are things in MI? I guess I will just go for it and not worry, I think it was my last try at logic prior to spending $$$ I shouldn't on a Nightforce. Don't tell the wife.

It won't be long before we fall off the map. I think they'll call it Couln'tquitecutitstan. Things are just OK. We've got some things in the works. Trying to have a positive attitude and hoping to have a good year.

After you get that you'll try and find ways to replace your other scopes. You'll grab you next in line rifle, look through the scope and be like blahhh "this is just unacceptable".

Now that you mention it that is what has happened. I have an IOR on my 300 win now. However, I need to scope a 223 rem I just bought for prairie dogs. The 4.5 X 14 sightron that was on my 06 is at Sightron for warranty. I want to put the warrantied Sightron on the 223 I hoping to substitue a higher power as they don't make the scope I have anymore. I want to put the IOR on my 06 . The Nightforce will go on my 3oo win. How's that for a plan?

This is the scabbard I've been using the last few years. Lots of room. No problem with IOR turrets moving at all, I'd expect the same with Nightforce since they're also fairly short.

My partner hunted with a NF last fall in AK. This was a horseback hunt, he used a zipper style soft case as a scabbard. I kept a scope coat on my Zeiss, which is my usually routine. For $10-15 they are cheap insurance. Plus my Zeiss has hunting turrets, target turrets just make me nervous especially on a horse hunt.
An outfitter's tack is well used, you may not be satified with the scabbard and saddle bags provided. If possible I will supply my own if I do another horse hunt.
