Curious about these. Looks like the only place to get them is eBay?

Any one with hands on input?
The reviews I read were pretty positive. But, give me an item or a super deal and I will tell you how good it is.

I've had a FFP 4-14 Menace for a number of years. It has taken hundreds of rounds of 7mm Mag, hundreds of .308 and hundreds more 600+ grain .510 subsonic rounds. All while cranking the crap out of the turrets without fail. Would I trust it on a hunt of lifetime or with my life? No, but was a good buy for me.

I have a couple scopes that I’m suspicious that are made in the same place, with same reticles and that cheesy felt bag that comes with them. I have abused these scopes, I don’t try to purposely break them. I try to get them to show faults in tracking, even putting one on my Lapua for a while.
They track, and the glass isn’t far off of the gen 1 pst territory.
For the record, these are not falcon scopes. I feel they are the same though. Other companies put their name on similar scopes and get great reviews and tracking out of that particular scope mechanisms. I have two left, and they are on the shelf for when I pick up a new rifle and need a scope.

Primary Arms? I believe they are pretty much the same after handling one.

I owned the primary arms as well and it’s the same basically. I actually sold it because I liked the reticle better in the bsa.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
