Better optics that either of the aforementioned.

I've only owned the SWFA SS 3-9 but I can tell you the glass on it had nothing on my NF. Perhaps the 5-20's are better?

    That certainly wasn't my experience.

    If cost is an issue, I'd take a used good-condition NF over the Mark 4s or SWFAs.

    I love my leupolds, but if i could afford it. There would be a Nightforce on every gun i own.

    nightforce,

    they have the most consistent scope on the market, vs leupold, which has an older erector system and lens coatings, and as for the swfa, while it might be a good deal, between chinese construction and glass vs japanese construction and glass, the Japanese always wins

    Re: Nightforce vs Leupold

    i guess ill have to go way out on a limb alone and say nightforce. comparing a leupold mk4 to a nightforce is like comparing a ferrari to a ford escort. (ok thats a exageration but you get the point)
