I just order a Leica ER 2.5-10x42 (30mm) and a Vortex Razor HD Light Hunter (1") in 2-10x40, both of which should be very nearly direct competitors of the NF. I'll try to post a review after they arrive.

If you're not going to be knob twisting there are probably others around that mag-x that have better glass.

I just took a quick look through the Leica and the Light Hunter and found both to be impressive. I'll take them to the range this weekend and form a more definitive opinion when my eyes are less tired. That said, they look pretty darn good.

I have the 5-20 on my Fairbanks 6.5 Creedmoor. Its just as good as the NXS line but lighter and capped turrets. Mine has the MOAR reticle, so dope is no problem. You will not be disappointed .






What are you putting it on?? I bought a 3-10 for my Sako 85 manlicher carbine, 6.5X55. It didn't fit, not enough tube space. went with Swarovski

Zero retention... Tracking....RTZ....all have been flawless with around 800 rounds under two different ones.

Some may have "better" glass (which is subjective anyhow)but I'll take the above 3 factors over that any day.
