    nightforce SHV 5-20x56 scope

    Any one got one of these, thinking about getting one for my 7mm mag. I've heard they have the same glass as the NSX.

    I've been thinking about one of. These as well looks like a good scope . The only thing I can't understand is if they are a next level down from the NSX scope that aren't built so robust why do they still weigh so much they are a heavy scope. I have looked the 4-14 version they are still very nice.

    According to Nightforce they are built to the same standards as there other scopes, I think it may be just the componentry that's not quite as high speced as there higher ends scopes to keep the cost down. They are on the heavy side for a mid range scope tho. however good buying I reckon if you don't care about the weight.

    Still a bit lighter than the NSX. I have a NXS on one barrel and really like the optics so was wanting another and thought the SHV looked a good option.
    Will have to have a look at one in person.

    Not the same the Shv doesn't have nearly the elevation travel of the nxs.
