That said, it was put on hold for a while when some of the internal priorities and decisions withing the company were "reorganized".
The goal wasn't to make a scope that was just to compete with S&B or the Leupolds, but offer something unique that was so much better that the military just "had to have it"...and I have seen several people drool over the prototypes , myself included. That said, it did take a while to bring it to production and it is on par pricing wise with S&B...it is a damned fine scope. The design and the coatings and glass should bring it on par with anything out there as well.
Just a little history...and my personal feelings are that Jeff would be proud, but he hasn't been with Nightforce for well over a year and a half and the NF crew is carrying on regardless.
Nothing bad to say about the scope, Nightforce or Jeff. Thoroughly encouraged by the new developments.
