Re: Nightforce Scopes vs Leupold

I bought a pair of NXS 8-32's this year, 1 RR and 1 R2 as well as a leupold LR M1 8.5-25x50. I like the nightforce scopes better. They have all been focused to my eyes,..but I would rather look through the nightforce for extended periods. And,...as has been stated,..the weigth difference says something to me about it's construction as well.

Re: Nightforce Scopes vs Leupold

I have 4 LR Leupolds(a 4.5-14, 2-6.5-20's and a 8.5-25) and two NXS's and I agree that it is not a fair comparison. The NF NXS's are in the class with the less expensive USO scopes and the Leupolds, while great scopes, are not in the same class as the NXS line. Just my $.02

Re: Nightforce Scopes vs Leupold

If you're seriously considering the NF, I'd get it, and with the R2 reticle too. It's somewhat more spendy, but in my opinion, well worth it. Good luck, I love mine. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
