Re: uso or nf

Here's what I think is a good to perhaps great deal on a US Optic scope.

Re: uso or nf

I am at the same type of situation as you, trying to decide on scopes. I have stumbled on a lower priced USO line, the ST-10 series. This model starts off at $850 in fixed powers only, I assume that you can add options like Ergo, Erek, illumination, and a 34mm tube the price will increase but the total price should still be cheaper than a NSX. The NSX that is giving me a hard time in deciding is the 5.5-22x56. The rifle that this will be mounted is a AR-10T semi in .308 so extra MOA in the tube would be an advantage in order to get out a bit further. (pay a little more for the tube and save on bases and rings)

I have inquired as to pricing on a USO with a few options but I haven't received any info back, customer service? I don't think that I have read any recent stories on the NSX besides the last one insisting on price-fixing...(which automatically makes me lean towards the USO line)

Re: uso or nf

I actually thought long and hard on buying a USO scope.. you know bang nails in with it and stuff....

I asked around... I have to be honest and say I heard 50/50 reviews... for $2000.. I would have expected the guys who own them to basically place them on an alter and worship them... I never got that... I have also heard rumors that you have to wait months if you order one....

I cannot justify the expense in my mind...
this is obviously my opinion.

WyoWhisper, it took about two to three weeks for me to get mine. Not months.

Re: uso or nf

I think the only reason to get a USO is because you think that the most expensive is always the best.

I have to agree with Wyo, the reviews do not reflect the price. Nightforce, on the other hand, has great reviews.

Can anyone give me specific reasons why a USO is better than the nightforce?
