    Does anyone know if the 2X or 3X optical boosters fit any of the variable NF scopes? Many thanks, Overbore

    They fit the BR series w/ the threaded eye piece

    Might be one coming that fits in a sleeve over the eyepiece of an NXS

    I have the NF BR 3x model. Works great and it just happens to fit inside the swarovkski scopes and piece of black tape will hold it to the tube. At least that is what Bobby Hart is going to try on the one he is ordering.BH

    I didn't know the answer but I do have Gene Davis's phone no. so I PMd Overbore Gene's phone because I really don't like to post someonelse's phone number on a public forum. I know that Gene has been working on making them for more models so I thought that was the best route.
    I do have one for a Weaver T-36 and I noticed it greatly reduced eye relief, anyone else who has the booster notice that?
    If anyone else is interested in them here is a link to Gene's add at benchrest.com

    I spoke to Gene today about a request from someone overseas for a version to fit on a S&B scope (non-threaded eye piece).

    He said they have a prototype in hand of a version that uses a rubber sleeve to hold the lens and fits over the eyepiece. It should fit eye pieces from ~1.4 to 1.7" in size. As an added bonus, the rubber will cover the edges of the metal lens holder so as to protect the user from scope cuts. Expected availability is some time in October, perhaps as late as November.

    I'll wait untill he has one for the NXS or my eyes say "GET ONE NOW"

    paralax effect

    hi has any one tested if the impact changes with the changing off the paralax with adjustable objective scopes. The side focus units should work without any trouble. The reason I ask is because when using lenses in peep sight shooting ig they come loose or turn they shift impact if not set up perfectly square to the other lenses. If they don't effect the impact I will be looking for a 3 Power booster for a Nightforce 12-42 that should make the ultimate F Class scope.

    Cheers Bill
