Just checking to see if any of you have got your hands on Nikon's newest FFP scope yet. They have been in stores the past few weeks but from what I have heard from online retailers they have sold out quickly. If you got one I'd love to get your impression's. A few guys have asked me when they were coming out and the answer is now.

With the MSRP they appear very affordable, now if they live up to the hype then they will be a good value

I checked in with your Nikon rep yesterday, via e-mail. The short version of the reply is, he should have some for demo very soon.

I think there is a very good chance this becomes one of the best low-cost tactical options along with the XTR and PST Gen 2, but priced slightly lower.

That is good new's JG, I haven't touched one since SHOT Show. Hopefully, I'll get my mitt's on one soon. I have a Bergara in 6.5 cm that I can't wait to test out. I have been using a couple of the BLACK X1000's for the last year and the BLACK FX1000 has some real upgrades I think you guys will appreciate.

Iíd like to demo one with the option that purchase. Iíve got 2 matches coming up in June and July that would be a good test for the tracking ability.

Look to be $799 everywhere online right now for 6-24 and Amazon has the 4-16 for $646

Barton, why don't you send one to Formidilosis over on 24HCF and let him put one through the ringer? It will get a "riforouos" workout to say the least.

I had more or less decided that the FX-1000 the 4-16x50 MRAD non-illuminated was what i wanted for my long range .3006. Now i just need to find one for sale somewhere. i'm located in San Antonio and haven't been able to find one anywhere.

I think the results are fairly predictable.

The man of whom they speak tests for government agencies...military, if I'm not mistaken. He does very mean things to scopes and breaks them way more often than not, as I hear it.

I think Formid forgot more about optics, rifles, bullets, and what works than you'll ever know. Probably because he sees hundreds of thousands of rounds shot with most every conceivable piece of equipment there is.
