Nikon has a new line of medium-low priced tactical/competition scopes out from $600. to $800.

You can get FFP, mil/mil or MOA/MOA turrets and reticles, side focus and zero lock. Pretty good for that price.

(I have an SWFA 3 - 15 x 42 scope for my Ruger American Predator. My SWFA scope has very good glass**, FFP, mil/mil, and side focus but no locking zero or setting lock.) :eek:(
**I would say my SWFA scope glass is every bit as good as my much more expensive Bushnell ERS 3.5 - 21 x 50 tactical scope.

So after inquiring at a few reputable optics shops the upshot is that SWFA seems to have an edge in quality with better glass and internals than the Nikon scopes.

Anyone have any experience with these new Nikon Black FX series?

Bravo 4, I have known about these shims but just keep putting it off.
What is your source, if you have a SWFA scope with them?

I have had two fixed power and about to get a 3-15 in. The fella that makes them is TimK on Snipershide, just google zero stop shims SWFA (or something equivalent). He sells them on eBay for $22.
