Lots of guys selling them on Sniper's Hide as well as the Rifle Scope Trader page on Facebook. I'd look around if you are okay with used and want a deal.

I wonder why they are selling them if they are so great.

Gear chasers.

There are guys that cannot wait to get the newest thing released. They get it, maybe mount it on a rifle, shoot it little to none, and are off to the next new thing.

And then there are those of us waiting on the sidelines to take advantage of their "used" scope prices.

I would definitely keep an eye out at several other sites for used Nightforce. Ive been seeing some 5.5-22x50 NXS show up recently for $1300ish. I just added a 2.5-10x42 nxs to my collection that I picked up used to go along with my ATACR.

I see this a lot. There are always new products coming out and all too often, you will see someone buy one rifle, buy a scope, change their mind on it and learn they will get more if they sell it on their own, rather than trade it in.

I get it, I don't do this exercise with a high frequency as others, but I get it.

And Kahles, and Tangent Theta.

Word is Kahles is Swaro glass, but in a scope that the turrets actually track and return to zero and a useful reticles.

Not exactly Jason. Only involvement Swarovski has with Kahles is handling importing and distribution in North America. As far as manufacturing...Kahles and Swarovski both utilize Schott Optical for lenses and the process in which the lenses are prepared and installed is totally different.

Thought I could count on my source. I was told, if Swaro needs glass, they'll borrow from Kahles, and vice versa.

Lots of optics companies use Schott glass, including Swaro. Very, very few companies grind, polish, and coat their own. I believe Meopta and S&B are two of the very few.

Maybe from a RAW material stand point. But the way they go about making the sauce is secret.

A little off topic but Meopta uses Schott glass as well. Optically they are hard to beat for the price.

you see allot of SHV for sale now because the new ones all have exposed turrets now, what everyone wants, not capped.
Dont shy away from the SHV, its just an NXS in a lightweight container. Buy with Confidence.

US optics would be where you go from Nightforce

Might want to look at Leupold Mark 5 and Mark 6 scopes, the top end of each are not cheap but are very comparable with NF. I don't have one but set up a rifle with one and it'll probably be my next scope unless US optic has a 50% off sale.

Two out of three USO’s I owned broke. The third was sold while still new in the box. The glass on one was exceptional, but durability and reliability are mandatory requirements.

One of my friends was an Army sniper, ultimately in charge of them for his battalion. He tried a USO and his broke too. His was issued a Luepold, but he purchased and took his own Nightforce on deployments.

They are in financial trouble. Probably because of their scopes breaking down so often. U.S. Optics is a down grade from Nightforce.

I don't know if they are in financial trouble but I they did just switch ownership and relocated to a friendlier state. They had a few growing pains with the new lineup but I haven't heard much bad press lately.

We both know the same people that I have had some conversations with. And they are reputable people...

Uh, no! Sorry, but you will not see a USO scope on any of my rifles. I have seen way too many of them take a dump in the middle of a match. Even by sponsored USO shooters. Price point, maybe. But by reliability, no way! Just because something is more expensive, doesn't mean that it is better or equally as good as something else.
