I have been a die hard Leupold fan all of my life, but my new Night Force NSX is truly amazing!!! Time will tell as far as service and warranty.....Leupold has set the standard there for years. I have an 8 - 32 NSX, but wish I had a 5.5 - 22, simply because I sometimes I end up in the bush, and 8x is simply to much. But for bench work and looooonnnnggg range hunting, I have seen nothing better than the NSX. I realy love that lighted cross hair.;) They are a little heavy, but, but I also have a 30" heavy bbl, so an extra pound is no big thing. I just wish I could use the NSX on my 1K light gun and make the 17LB weight limit.:mad::mad: I am "forced" to use my Leupold 8.5 - 25 LRT. I guess that I have had to make a lot tougher decisions than that before, so no big deal. Leupold makes a great scope, also.
