    I am interested in purchasing the Nightforce 5.5-22x56 scope. I am going to mount it on a Remington Sendero SF 2. What height should I order the Nightforce rings.

    If you order a Nightforce 40 moa base and a set of Nightforce 1.125 rings you will be about 10 moa off the bottom zeroed at 100 yards . And still able to get sun shade on and off with a little clearence to spare.

    Usually the price is non-neg. but I seen for the first time a couple of months ago they were on sale at Midway for around $1450. Usually around $1650. The last one I bought was around a year ago for $1550(before price increase) for my new build been sitting in the safe waiting. Not much longer to wait now though. Try some of the sponsors here or check out the classifieds in optics for sale. Pretty tough to hurt a NF.
