Wasn't someone, I think firemanjg, going to get a loaner and do a review on the new Nikon black x1000?

Did I miss it or has it not been done yet? I couldn't seem to find it.

Thanks.

Have not heard back in several weeks. They may have not got any in just yet. I will send an email to the Nikon rep today.

I'm very interested, I'm in the market for new scope and the FX1000 (FFP) is on my list but want to see an impartial review.

Looking forward to a review as well. I like what I see in promotional literature...would like to see real world impressions.

The FX1000 is just now hitting the market, you can buy them online. I've read a couple of other reviews, looks pretty good.

Just re-read the email from the Nikon rep. He told me the scopes should be on the shelves in April. I will give it a week, and check in with him. I will let him know that several of yall are awaiting a field test and review.

I hope it's not TOO far off topic, but it occurred to me that a scope like that could be just fine for LR work. If the target's far enough away to justify dialing, then it ought to be far enough away to justify full magnification also---16x should be very good. Being one who does not like the size of the reticle to change, that is a scope I'd be very willing to consider---pending a good wringing out. Looking forward to your report, JG.
