I have to admit that I am not impressed with the optical quality of my Nightforce 12-42 BR. But the high magnification is very nice.

My friend shoots with a Swarovsky and that is impressive optical quality.

I have one NightForce 12-42x56 NXS and another on order, so I have been watching this thread unfold with interest. To say I was a little concerned is putting it lightly even though I liked the quality of the first scope so well I was silling to pay retail for another new one.

I emailed NightForce and gave this thread to them and asked their response. Here is what I received this morning.

George,

I am not sure why Canuck is so adamant about putting Nightforce down and truly wish if he was that unhappy he would of contacted us to help resolve any possible flaw, we have not changed our specs or our QC except to improve it. We grade our glass to the same standard as when we first started in 1992 and feel we still have some of the finest glass on the market. Canuck sounds to be a well-informed and knowledgeable person regarding optics and we as a accompany value all comments, fortunately we receive far more positive than negative. We have always backed our product and if there is a problem, we will work to resolve it.

Sincerely

I am glad to hear nightforce is following this thread .The reason I was so dissapointed in the nightforce was because I wanted to use it for target/ longrange hunting.When I first received it there were a few of my buddies that were extremely interested in this scope as they were looking for dual application scopes as well. None of us had even seen a nightforce up to this point. So we headed out to our shooting range to run it through some tests. We all agreed the build and features of the nightforce were outstanding with the exception that we wished it had a rubber ring around the eye piece to avoid getting cut with larger magnum calibers and we also wished it had an ocular quick focus ( on the eye piece) .Next came the optical assessment.I won't bother rehashing all the optical short comings but it was obvious that it's only useful function would be target.
I think there would definitely be a market for a higher end nightforce with premium glass. As was suggested before you could offer this as an option.This could also be implimented almost immediately.Guys are willing to spend thousands on their rifles so I think they would be willing to spend an extra 500-1000 for a nightforce with truly good glass( I know I would in a heart beat). A lot of guys I know that like to shoot groups at the range( we don't compete but just enjoy shooting) are getting into longrange hunting so are looking for scopes with great features and great glass.If you do offer such a scope I can assure you I will definitely buy a couple and I know a few other that would buy atleast one a piece.

I wonder if any company would publicly admit their product's quality has decreased over the years? My guess is no! Yea guys our scopes use to be great but lately we don't care that much so to make people believe they are still good, we jack up the price.
This is just an opinion on the reply from Nightforce! I love my nightforce scopes, in my eyes they are superior!

Interesting forum, I have alot of Leupolds and a few Zeiss scopes very pleased with them. Been considering a N/F like the New 2.5 x10-32 for my Blackgun. My little experience with them is they are Heavy. They seem to have clear optics ( haven't shot them much yet)Most of the BR shooters seem to be using them. I can understands Canucks wants/ needs IE. the rubber eye guard would be a good thing AND QUALITY GLASS was something ithought they had Very happy with my Zeiss & Leupold just looking for another QUALITY SCOPE Any reason to not get one? Thanks for the input

I have watched & read this thread with extreme interest. Why ?
Because I have been seriously considering buying a new Night-
force Scope. After a very careful review, after talking with
several very knowledgable shooters/hunters, after reading every-
thing I could find on several Internet Boards, I made my decision this afternoon. I ordered a new Nightforce 12 x 42 x 56
BR Model with the NP2DD Reticle. And, you know what ? I think it
is going to be a great improvement over the Leupold 36's that I
have been using for years. And, yes, I even have two that have
the Tucker Conversion. I figured out several years ago that one
could ask several shooters/hunters the same question and most of
the time get several different opinions. All I can say is that I
have seen way too many Nightforce Scopes do extremely well in
competitions. So, now I will have one (to start with) ! Perhaps
more in the future. Anyone want to buy some Leupolds 36's & 45's ? I may have some for sale !

Canuck, I am also from the great white north.
You really got my attention when you said you could get a new 12.5x50 S&B up here for less than a march or USO.
I guess from my time looking around at scopes I figured the new S&B to be a LOT of money, can you elaborate any on this?
Thanks in advance, and great thread,
Cdog.

When you consider both taxes,shipping and duty I believe the S&B is actually cheaper to obtain than a March or USO( atleast here in canada). "Wolverine supply" has the 12.5-50 X 56 listed at $2850 CD. As our dollar is currently about 18% below U.S.D this is certainly cheaper than I could obtain a March or USO. The problem is they don't have any but you can order it.I was told it is about a 6 month wait. The U.S is suppose to have them in as little as a few weeks. I guess we will see.
