    First let me say, Hello to all, I have been away for awhile. I have a couple questions for the resident experts

    1) Can I buy a FFP scope any more that has repearable clicks with an objective no larger than 42mm?

    2) I was waiting for the Nightforce FFP scopes to come out, I have seen that they are out now. Are they worth the cost? I can't beleive the price(s)

    Thanks

    S&B 4X16X42.... Nightforce scopes are excellent and whether or not the pricing of the FFP models is worht it or not depends on how much you want a FFP scope IMHO

    Yes. The S&B John mentions, also IOR offers a 2.5-10X42 and 3-18X42 in FFP. All have very repeatable clicks.

    I have an IOR 2.5 X 10 X 42 FFP, it is nice. I didn't think IOR still made them. Do they have all the bugs worked out of the IOR 3 X 18? Thanks

    USO has slimline models for some of thier scopes,which are generally 37mm.I think on the others the smallest is usually 44mm.

    The IOR models look pretty good and cost much less. However, note that the clicks are in 1/10 mils. That really isn't an issue to me since it's just as easy to create a drop chart in those units. Only other thing I read that could be a concern for some was a comment (by ILya I believe) elsewhere that @ low magnification the MP-8 reticule can be hard to see without the illumination on.

    Like it has been said the USO has a 37mm for the SN3 now and the S&B has a 4-16x42mm bell. I have used both and at this time I use a 4-16x42mm S&B. I have also played with the NF FFP and they are great scopes also. I’m a very big fan of FFP scopes that are 12x and up. If you are doing F-Class or Bench Rest I do not recommend the FFP scopes. FFP scopes are great for holdovers and ranging. The FFP Scopes tend to be great for hunting and tactical shooting.
