I have owned three Nightforce scopes. The first was an old used one, (3-9x56?) and it was nothing special. I later got a 5.5-22x56. It was a very nice scope, but huge! The latest model NXS scopes are excellent. I now have a 3.5-15x50. It is a wonderful scope and not so bulky as the 56mm. Watch-Six

I too have the 3.5-15x50 NXS, it's a frickin' great scope no doubt!! I'm very happy with it and don't regret switching out my M1 LR for it. The only downside I can see for the Nightforce line, is that they are heavy scopes (but extremely rugged/bullet proof design), and the higher powered ones use those huge 56mm objectives. I guess I also wish the illumination worked more like the Leupold's does. You don't have a quick and handy brightness control knob on the NF like you do on the Leupold. You basically have to set it for the brightness you want and forget it. To adjust the brightness on the NF, you have to remove the battery cap, and use a small screwdriver to turn the rheostat to the desired location. I set it once, and have never messed with it since.

[img]http://outcast.homeunix.org/uploads/guncase.jpg [/img] On my 8-32x56 NXS, I am using the NP-R2. One of thing I like most about the NF scope is the laser etched reticles. They high definition, with fine markings. Since they are etched, they can be seen in almost every condition other than darkness. then you switch on the illumination, the reticle switches from black to glowing red..Sweet! The NF NXS are great long-range scopes that you can use them from dawn to dusk!! Stuart
