    If you buy a nightforce to compare it to,

    Me to , I have three and all been good so far. I know a guy who bought brand new Swaro Z6 I and when he mounted it on rifle the windage adjuster would move one way but wouldn't shift back. Brand new out of box, it's back in Austria getting fixed now. You get duds in all makes.

    GWH,
    I'll tell you what I'll do.
    I'm sure that other people on the forum know you well and I see you have over 2 k posts so ..
    I will send you a Nightforce 3.5-10 x42
    This one
    NXS„ 2.5-10—42 COMPACT RIFLESCOPE | Riflescopes & Sport Optics | Nightforce Optics, Inc., it of course has the MIl-R reticle.
    You can have a look at it put it on a rifle and see what value it may have for you.

    At least that one has a sane weight. Some of the NFs weigh more than the rifle!

    Yeah sorry didn't mean you should make me an offer, just meant you can have a look , see what you think, then send it back, get you own if you desire.
    Happy to do it for a member.
    Set it up and shoot it, that's what they are for.
    regards,

    Very nice scope and one you don't see very often come up for sale - good practical power range - good usable reticle design - good reticle illumination - good size and weight scope for a hunting rifle... If you ever want to sell it @jakewire then feel free to get in touch (assuming of course GWH doesn't grab it!)

    mate runs that scope on his sako bushpig and says it is epic. Ridiculously clear, dials well and not overly heavy.

    Exravision in Aus are the NZ Reps.
    @Gillie did you look through my Sig Sauer Whiskey5 3-15x44 at the GAS? Pretty practical and compact with good glass to boot.
    Warm Barrels!
