Re: Sightron vs. Nightforce vs. Leupold
XP, it's been a known for quite a few years that the glass suppliers change continually. US Optiks is another that is very unpredictable. The one thing I commend Leupold on is that even though there glass is almost second rate it is very consistent. That's not a bash to Leupold but, there very consistent. I guess I should state that there is much better glass out there for the money instead of second rate.
This is something I'm sure that Scott from Liberty or Doug from Cameraland could elaborate on. The same goes for Bino's, the glass and coating qualities vary from lot# to variance within a lot#.
The scope Line I have found through personal testing to have very good repetitive glass are.
Sightron SIIB and SIII (SI and SII have been spuratic)
Again Leupold, very consistent
Kahles C series
The Conquest Line actually the complete Zeiss Line.
Swaro P series
Some that hve been all over the map.
Obviously the are others in both categories but that's just a general idea.
Again, call Doug at CameraLand or Scott At Liberty, I', sure there willing to elaborate.
