Based on features I read.

Pros: MOA reticle and MOA knobs, great glass (NF afterall)

Cons: Second focal plane, knobs under caps, weight.

Price?

For that I would get a Viper PST.

FFP, lighter, exposed turrets.

The Nightforce SHV is only about 4 ounces heavier than the PST.

I think they blew it on the specs for the scope personally.
Especially the 56mm objective, that may sell in Europe but not well in the US for most hunters.

I bet it sells better here European hunters/shooters are used to good glass that doesn't need the huge objective lenses.

No shooting light restrictions over there.

Yup, here I have never seen the need for the extra ring height/bulk/weight of a 50mm or larger objective for deer hunting within our legal hunting hours.
