Yes, Nightforce scopes are that good. Buy the Nightforce NXS 5.5x22x56mm, you will never want another brand of scope ever again. Don't let anyone tell you Leupolds are just as good, they don't even come close to the Nightforce NXS line of scopes. Don't get me wrong, Leupolds are great scopes, they're just not as good as Nightforce. Buy the Nightforce NXS Scope, A-SAP!

How's this for tough an AK-47 bullet hole completely through the tube and the scope still function perfectly to use for 3 more days with the holes taped over.. I have looked through this scope and it was still shooting with-in 1/4 MOA to 500 meters according to the soldiger that was useing it...





Rugged enough for you?

It used to be on their website, but I could not find it to link now....but the scope took a bullet. It locked the power adjustment ring, but after the guy taped the scope to keep out dust, he used it three more days until he got back. Held zero and still tracked.
