What is the difference between the MK IV and Nightforce bases and Farrel bases? There seems to be a large gap in pricing,..and I am wondering what the machining differences are that would contribute to this. Are the Nightforce, MK IV, BO bases machined to tighter tolerances than the Farrels? or is there some other factor I have missed?

Thanks

I have all the bases you listed and the only difference I can find is the BO base is a true mil-spec Picatinny rail, whereas the others are just Weaver style bases. That being said my favorites are the BO and the Farrell--don't waste your money on MKIV--they are the same base as the QRW, just 3 times more expensive. For the money, you can't beat the Ken Farrell product...

Thank You Chris,.....I just thought maybe I was "out of the loop" on something.

Do you feel that the BO is better than the Nightforce bases as well?

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
