Re: The Rodney Dangerfield of high-end scopes.
Just my 2 cents ok I have three NF's 2 are 5.5 X 22 and one 8 X 32 not the NXS style the older ones. I was looking for a good work scope and looked at three and had a chance to try a few different scopes the one you are talking about,NF and also a mark 4 . I mounted all three different brands on a board and set them up looking at a lable on a 55 gallon drum in my yard threw a open window and checked every vew hours to see if I could read the lable on a 55 gallon drum the end test was at about 3:AM and i could read moast of the lable out of my NF.
The mark 4 was the first to go at about 8:00pm your brand went at about 9:45. I know this sounds like a weard test but, here we can not hunt with a light and i hunt a lot of wolves in the night when the moon is in second quarter till it is full and from my NF it was like 12:00 noon plus when i bought my first two they were the only ones to have lit cross hairs that was important to me as far as my job goes also and she does return to zero every time.
The only problem i have is at -30 to -50 the OBJ and eye foces is like super glue to turn but at the extream cold that i work I am glad that anything works LOL LOL LOL. Matter of fact i am having another rifle made and am putting a Nesika action on it and when i talked to them they were worried that I may have problems in the extream cold becous of the tightness of there product.I know that had nothing to do with this but just through that in as to the work load my stuff goes through. and i have stuck with NF bouth are in or about the same price range so money was not the problem three large black wolves pays for the scope but the NF is super clear compared to the rest and gathers light better as far as i can say again this is my two cents worth.
I hope this came close to what you were looking for as to an answer:Coyote Slayer
Eat Moose 20,000 wolves can't be wrong
