So this is odd if you ask me

The nxs has exposed zero stop turrets

The Atacr has capped turrets


Wonder why the Atacr doesnít have the same turrets

My guess would be to keep cost down on the nxs. More machine time + material.

I think a few manufacturers have changed their 1-4x, 1-6x, 3 gun magnified optics to capped turrets because of the abuse they see in the stages and they don't want to twist a dial accidentally. Maybe they want to offer something for that crowd?

Just laid hands on this at the SCI convention. No question about it, I need it. Donít like the fact it has capped elevation however the rep said it can be run without the cap and that NF provides a thread protector to use if thatís how you decide to run it.

Right. They do the same thing on the windage knob of the ATACR line. And they provide a "beauty ring", which is a thread protector.

Thanks for the follow up. Was trying to figure that out. I think the scope looks cleaner with the caps
