Re: Satisfied Users Of Nightforce Scopes From Nightforce Optics

I have two, with the same results as everyone else. If there was ever a reason to have to decide between brands it would be NF. NF has a second to none customer satisfaction guarantee. The first one I bought (12x42 NXS) was not to my standards, and to say the least I was disappointed. I called NF on Thursday with my complaint. They said if I could get it to a UPS store and put it on second day air they would pay the freight both ways. I did. Tuesday morning I had a new one setting on my door. That tells me they did not even look at the scope, just box another up and send it out. No questions asked! I have heard of several other customers having the same customer service. There is no run around if you need the warranty. I will continue to buy NF.

I have used three different NXS of my friends. I just got my first NXS 5.5x22x50 NR-P2. I sold my Swarovski to fund this purchase. There is no comparison in clarity or brightness between the two. I will be buying more!!

Re: Satisfied Users Of Nightforce Scopes From Nightforce Optics

Bought my first this year...a 5.5x22x50 for a Lapua. I have owned 2 USO, a Zeiss and a Swarovski previously, so was used to good glass...But when studying the specs, such as exit pupil , I was at first concerned that there wouldn't be enough light through a 2.25 mm exit pupil...but I was wrong. I have never noticed any lack of light even though I usually like at least a 4mm exit pupil in my binoculars...
I was convinced to make the buy when we were sighting in my partners rifle at the range...we needed 3/4 MOA adjustment to the left and when we dialed it in the bullet moved precisely that amount...The adjustments were exactly the way they should be, viz. precise and repeatable.
I am intrigued by the new 2.5x10x32. I can already see it sitting on a lightweight 7mm that I am scheming about. I am also wanting to check out the new FFP's when I get the chance. And I would still like to see Holland's reticle in one of the FFP's 30-338

Re: Satisfied Users Of Nightforce Scopes From Nightforce Optics

After 3 bad experiances with 3 scopes and their manufacturers, I tried NF in 1999. I have never looked back. NF scopes are everything those others were supose to be and even better. I have always thought they were a dream come true and they are. Although I use a Lupy Mk4 10x on my sheep rifle due to its lower weight, for my serious LR work and other hunting situations, I prefer my NF's.

Thanks you NF!

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Re: Satisfied Users Of Nightforce Scopes From Nightforce Optics

Shawns video finally pushed me over the edge. When a guy like Shawn says you can't do better...

Suddenly, the rifle is a half moa shooter, the zero never shifts, the drop charts work... The perfect long range scope. If they could shave 1/2 a lb. they'd be the perfect all around scope too.

A scope to believe in.

Re: Satisfied Users Of Nightforce Scopes From Nightforce Optics

Bought another last week. 5.5 x 22 x 56 NXS with 1/4 MOA's and a MLR ret. Took it to the range, looked through the bore at 100 yards got it close, fired 1 shot, 11 inches high and 4" right. Made both elevation and windage corrections at once. Fired the second shot, BINGO! dead nuts... But I never expected any less from a Nightforce.

Great product!

Jeff
