Can anyone tell me about this scope? I've been looking for a new scope to use for predator hunting and general longer range shooting.

Is it the best scope for its price range or should I look a the Trijicon series?


Thanks!

I have both and I would have to give Trijicon my vote for long range moving targets ..The 2.5x10x 56mm lense has a huge FOV and works excellent in low light . Though the Nightforce NSX is generally a better all around rugged, compact tactical scope with more reticle options and superior customer service.

How is the FOV with the 32mm objective?

I have both the Nightforce and Trijicon.

The Nightforce 2.5-10x is what all others are judged by. Best in class. True military grade.

Trjicon TR24's are just a low cost commerical scope.

I had one and hated it. Narrow FOV, Narrow eyebox, decent glass. I know it's a rugged little joker, but a decent Leupold will be strong enough for a hunting rig. For me, I replaced mine with a Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40 and couldn't be happier. The Zeiss is a little larger, but actually lighter than the Nightforce. Better glass, better FOV, better eyebox.

You should look at the new Vortex Viper PST 2.5-10x32 FFP. $500 less than the NF, comes with a zero stop, FFP, matching MIL/MIL or MOA/MOA, lifetime unconditional warranty, better FOV, etc.
