    Man... you had my hopes up for a minute. Till I seen the Special Forces part, I quit reading after that.

    Absolutely correct. If you get to wondering why the German economy is doing well, while others riot in the streets here's a good example.

    I understand what you guys are saying, but.. there's a reason why Schmidt & Bender was awarded the contract. The NF, Leupold, Premier.... and other scopes tested failed.. and some failed miserably. Schmidt is undoubtedly the leader in the high end optical arena..

    I agree with you both on buying American made products, I wish it was that simple. But I also want the best equipment I can get when going into combat. Our M24's still have 20+ year old designed fixed 10x M3A's. All our rifle scopes are Leupold. However, two of my section's SWS are down because their scopes are waiting to be sent in to Leupold for repairs (they won't adjust). My last Leupold was sent in four times for mechanical failures. For hunting/target shooting/competition is one thing, but when my guys have bullets flying at them...that's another. I don't care if it was made on the moon, I need the confidence that it will perform. Would I feel undergunned with NightForce? Not at all, but I sure wouldn't hesitate mounting a S&B!

    If you are refering to me with the "I,AM not understanding THE SPECIAL FORCES COMMENT..", it says in the article "These scopes will be used by special forces for the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps."

    Also, US Optics did submit a scope for testing.
