    Scopes:

    Huskemaw Blue Diamond

    Gunwerks Nightforce G7

    Greybull Precision Leupold

    If you were to be offered TWO scopes for TWO of your brand new rifles but the scopes MUST be the same brand, which of the above would you choose at NO charge to you (i.e., money is of no concern), and why?

    I have owned all 3 and I now shoot a G7 Nightforce. I have sold almost all my others and have gone to all Nightforce.

    This is interesting.

    To Sully, what would be your choice other than my list?

    In your list I would go NF. But I like lighter weight scopes and rifles for packing. I dont know if Greybull offers more than 14x, my brother in law has one. If cost was no issue a March tact.3-24x42 ffp, mil@ 22 oz. would really interest me

    I've got 2 Zeiss Conquests 4.5x14s and I'm happy with the glass, unhappy with the eye relief.

    Don't know anything about US Optics. Swaro and SB are probably priced out of my range. Unless they are on par with what a new G7 would run me.

    May want to look at a Night Force w/o the G7 badge. May save you a little money. Though you said money is not a problem. If I could get an optic w/o consequence, then it would definitely be a S&B or Premier.

    When you are talking those...."Don't know anything about US Optics. Swaro and SB"....your talking lots of loot!!! The 5-25 Swaro is about the cheapest at $1500...

    Of the 3.....NF. Why? because they are VERY sturdy and reliable. I've seen better glass but as an overall working system, they rock.

    Everything here has a gold ring except my pistol scopes but I'd take a S&B and sell it for a pair of Golden Rings....:D
