I just sold my 6 month old NSX. I bought it based on all ther glowing comments.The adjustments are great but The glass in those scopes is very substandard for a scope of that price. I have many good quality optics( leica,zeiss,swarovski) as well as leupolds and bushnell elites which are pretty good. The $400 elites have far superior contrast compared to a nightforce.Nightforce needs to get their act together and atleast get some good coatings on that glass.

niceone, you should know, from reading the posts on this, and other sites, that everything that is older, is better. Older Rem 700's, older Win. M70's, paper shotshells, 51 Plymouths, etc. etc., etc.

It would be great if NF and Leupold offered hi-dollar glass as an option. With that, they could charge another $1,000 and many would pay it (I would).
But then, it would be nice if Swarovski offered scopes with half the field functions of a Mk4..
Other companies would bridge the gap, if it weren't for their particular themes.. This ones metric, that ones FFP, and over here a hodge-podge of MOA and MILs mixed, etc. They just don't nail it.
I think a MARCH/MK4/med-fine crosshair combination at around $2,500 would be an incredible do-all scope.
So that's what I'd pay Leupold for one(if offered).

Surprised to hear that based on all the glowing reports. I've looked through the older benchrest models and they certainly appeared clear enough, but again only looked. I would be curious if others have similar observations.
IOR uses Schott glass, which I believe, is the finest optical glass in the world. I don't know who Nightforce uses but I suspect it is Japanese. While nothing wrong with Japanese glass, Schott glass is ahead of the pack. I was looking on the IOR website, and they certainly have some nice scopes.
