Re: Nightforce vs ???

I have several Nikons, and a Vortex and Nightforce (benchrest model). The Vortex and NF have much better reticles, track much better, etc... and are all around more mechanically superior scopes. However, the fact of the matter is, my $199 ProStaff has better optical clarity than the Vortex and Nightforce (so does the Monarch), both have craptacular turrets, though.

I haven't tried any of the German optical companies scopes, though.

Anyone using the SWFA SS 5.5-20x50? Looks like a pretty good option.

Going to War?? Get a Nightforce, anything else...Swaro, Sightron, Meopta

Not sure your budget, well I gues if you are planning on selling anytime soon get a Nightforce, although they are already losing their value because they have come out with so many new models. The origional NXS with no Zero Stop or Highspeed dials, is losing resale value rapidly.

See this is when you need to worry about vendors. -When they undercut their own merchandise, and depart from what put them on the map... It means they're lost(probably due to new management) & will do anything for no more than change.

OK what? Not sure what that has to do with the discussion at hand.
