    Toe in water - Nightforce 5.5-22x50 HS / ZS possibly up for sale

    Hi there,
    I'm thinking of selling my NF 5.5-22 x 50 with Highspeed adjustments, Zero stop & NPR1 reticle complete with NF ultralight medium rings & bubble cap level. Basically as new, lenses perfect, slight marks on ring cross bolt nuts. Still with original packaging, manuals etc. Would suit new buyer as I always look after my gear. Awesome scope that i'm reluctant to part with but contemplating the new NF Beast or a S&B.

    Asking $2500 for the lot.

    Hell of a good combo you have there, someone is getting a bargain.

    You sure you want to sell it ?
    I have two of the combinations mentioned (in 56mm) and wont ever be selling them, having shot 2 Sika at 905yrds at 9pm in the evening in fading light (it was the 21st January on our long summer days), on private land, and am impressed with their light gathering abilities.

    It's very difficult to find a precise aiming system thats tougher than a Nightforce.

    No Nightforce experience but the Premiers are not indestructible Mine is on a flight home from the US now with 100USD worth of work on it to repair. Still has a permanent faint bump in the side focus from a slightly crushed tube and a new front objective ring. While over there it had a new LT turret installed in the Elevation to make it a Varmint configuration now (was Hunter).
    Still tracks perfect thank christ according to Premier
    I would recommend Vice Grips over Warne rings

    Don't know as they were not mine.
