    There were announced back in January at Shot show, no idea when they will make it into the wild though.
    They announced a 7-35 Mark 5hd at the same time and seems to be appearing now.

    I was excited to hear about the 4-20x52 but less excited when I found out it was a 34mm tube.
    199p and chainsaw like this.

    Thought the same about the tube diameter but I'm guessing that's where the 3 turn dial comes into play. Will certainly be on the wishlist if it's not too far away

    Same here

    If they where 30mm tube i would have 3 of them on preorder.

    Seen a few rifles with 34mm tubes and even with the lowest rings owners could find they sat high. Would be fine for a chassie gun

    Yes I saw the new vx5 range advertised in the latest H&F catalogue. From memory the 4-20x52 was approximately $3k.

    I reckon the new nightforce NX8 Series will be hard to beat with the 2.5x20 and 4x32 magnification in 30mm tube.
    I know I'm getting one for sure!

    Would be real interested in the price gap between the two 20 mag scopes

    Bugger, you had me going then as I thought you meant the magnification range was 2.5-20. Like the March.

    Looks like 50mm objective and lighter than the old 5.5x22.
    Hands down winner!
