This Nightforce 3.5X15X50 survived an AK-47 bullet that penetrated completely through the tube. The holes were taped up and the Scope was used for 3 more day, and maintained 1/4 MOA to 500 meters.. Notice where the hole is located and you will know exzctly what the bullet hit on the inside...
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot
i saw that at shot show. Did you get a chance to look inside that thing? it was so much better then one would think. And just for hoot and holler, what did leupold release at shot show, wasent it a little flashlight? LOL
Now i am curious has anyone got a chance to look through march Glass?
The glass in the nf isn't even close to the s&b and i think it's right on par with the leupold. I think its a stronger scope than the leupold but you pay for it in weight. If you are on the border line with a weight restriction go with leupold as it's a much lighter scope. As for quality control at leupold I just bought 3 new 2008 models and I see no diff in the new ones or the older ones. Just one heck of a scope at a descent american made price.
