Scopes - Nightforce:
What a refreshing treat to find this board, actually someone on
the net that talks my language, and a lot of good info too.
In the past couple of days I picked up a Rem 700 P, 308 and had a
Nightforce NP1-RR 8-32x56 mounted on a one peice twist off base.
The shop was out of the Harris bipods, so that is on order. Muzzle
blast reduction and redirection, well that will come out of my shop.
If I don't like the NP1 scope, I will change it for a Sheperd or
US optics. Has anyone here had any experience with the
Nightforce scope. I would apprerciate coments good or bad.
Good board Guys, I really like it.

I own a 8-32x56 with an NP-R2 ranging reticle, I have nothing but
good things to say about them. I was seriously debating over that scope or the Leupold M4 M1 16x42. The local .50 cal shooters and some of our local police snipers were trading in their old tactical scopes and M4's in favor of these scopes. They were doing it for two reasons,
first, the Leupolds don't track as well as Nightforce scopes with the coil springs, and second, some of the guys were having problems with the M4's breaking down under the force of the .50's, the Nightforce scopes weren't doing that. Their field of view is a little less than the Leupolds because of flatter glass, but Leupolds optical clarity doesn't even come close, these scopes are right there with the Swarovski's & Zeiss's in terms of clarity. There big and bulky, but there strength, tracking and clarity is unmatched. Oh yea, mine is a 98 model.
