I don't really "need" it, but I may have to order one or two anyway.

That's the only reason I have never bought one.

No parallax either...another new scope failure, they are all doing it. I'd like them to figure out the weight and keep it down under 22oz though, this is a step in that direction.

Except Maven, appears they are listening to someone over there...one might argue the cheaper Vortex but in my opinion, cheaper Vortex means trouble.

I've got some features I'd like to see all incorporated into one rifle scope. More geared toward hunters, that are competent at 400 yards +. If I can get a good optics manufacturer to listen, and build the scope, I think they will sell them like hotcakes.

True, very close. Nightforce needs to fly you out for the weekend so you can help them make the right scope. It’d benefit them financially.

I've shared my ideas with lots of friend that hunt and shoot. They've all said they'd buy the scope, that does not yet exist.

This has better glass and is FFP.

https://www.eotechinc.com/eotech-vudu-1-10x28-ffp

I had two of the old NXS 24mm and two of the 42mm. Still have one 42mm because of the IHR reticle which is great for young shooters as it’s very simple.
Based on my experience which was practically giving away the two 24mm I wish them luck selling them.
They are typical Nightforce meh glass but built well to withstand abuse using old time tested designs. My 7-35 ATACR is the only model NF I have ever seen that has really nice glass…. Now if they would just get rid of the whole eyepiece turning to change magnification.

Is like to check out that Eotech. Their prisms breaking down a couple of years ago gives me pause, though.

5-25 ATACR
7-35 ATACR
4-32 NX8

I've got zero complaints about the glass in any of them. I've asked a whole lot out of them, and they've always performed.

I really love this zoom range and to have it on this LPVO format seems awesome. I'm certainly intrigued and considering it.


I'm a dude who likes long barrels!

The SWFA HD 3-9 is under 20oz. I think it doesn't get enough love because it doesn't have double-digit magnification on the top end. But 9x will get you pretty far out there.

Two days ago, I intentionally set my scope magnification at 10X. Then looked 500 yards, and beyond.

I'd be comfortable shoot 600 yards and in, at 10X.

Do not forget the NX8 2.5-20X

It is a little bit smaller and lighter than the NX8 4-32X

You should put your money in and get some of these friend's to invest with you, and run to a Jap OEM and get 'em made. Another SWFA business model.

Definitely an option. It's option #2 for me right now.

That would demand lots more time than I prefer to give it.
