    I have the 5x20 model and think it's great, It dials perfectly and always returns to zero, it gets a hammering on my quad and hasn't lost zero yet, i shoot a lot out to 500 yds and the glass and focus are perfect. Mine has the covered turret which is good for me as it goes in a scabbard pack, the zero stop feature is well worth it over the 14 zoom

    Yeah I rate my 5-20 x 56 as a very good value scope, nice glass ( not quite as good as my VX6 & Z5 but above my VX3i ) nice positive clicks with zero stop, good reticle, pretty good eyepiece, good solid design, nicely made & finished.

    It's a bit heavy like all NF's but that weight comes with strength & reliability

    I rate them extremely highly as I have plenty of exceptional glass to compare them to.
    value for money =excellent

    I agree. great glass, ive shoot rabbits from 350-700 yards with mine. smashed it around in the bush, to gong shooting out to 1000yards the next day. 5-20x56 btw. solid piece of kit. nxs is more heavy duty. never lost zero. zero set works effectivly.
