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...

    The Nightforce is a top of the line scope. It has amazingly clear glass.

    The S & B is better......

    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.

    I dissagree, IMHO the NXS glass is better than a Leuppy YMMV

    Nothing Leupold makes is an true American made product. Far from it.

    They used to state, "Made right, made here" on their ads in sporting publications and such. There's a reason why don't use that slogan any longer.
