S1, your answer brings up another question. How do I test to see which is best for me without buying one which I won't consider without viewing.
Would you look at the B.E.Meyers site for me to compare stats with the one you like?
What was the cost for yours?
Also, what are the implications of lower power going to higher power on your NFS with the unit you mention. Is there incentive to use only the power you need and the light is reduced for higher powers.
Cimrad by Kigre systems. It's used by many, many of the elite & for good reason. Facial recognition at distance is easily achieved, unlike many of the others that are better marketed, & less capable.
It's simple & adaptable. The top 1/2 of the front ring is replaced by one that has a horizontal slot with rails milled in - it is left in place. An adapter ring screws in the front objective to replace, or in lieu of, the sunshade.
The system itself slides in the front objective & onto the rail. A simple lever cams the whole device down onto the rail & that's it!
Total time to go from day to night is about 10 seconds. Since it reflects the image from above it doesn't need to be re-zeroed (other than a standard 3.5MOA down click to adjust for the optical height) it does NOT need a dedicated night rifle to be hooked onto. It can be switched between rifles without need for zero change too.
Hey S1, would a unit like you speak of fit on my Ruger M77 Target 25-06 with a 6.5-20 x 50mm Leupold scope? ..
I like to hunt Coyotes, and coyotes do come out in daytime lots, but most of them are out at dusk and nights, many farmers who raise animals are having problems with them...
How does the low light gathering unit fit on a scope, from the front (objective) or back (eye pice)???
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
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
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
