After saving for 6 months I took the plung and ordered one. After research and the help from calguns and sniperhide guys I placed the order and received it yesterday. All I can say is wow. I have always used super sniper,falcon,wotac, bushnell quality of scopes. Which are good scopes, but now I know why so many recommend the Nightforce. Its amazing how I can put it next to a scope with the same power but see twice as far do to the glass being so clear. Below is what I ordered. I went back and forth between this one and the 22 power one. I know I made the right choice after looking through both. Thanks again for all the advice you all put in this forum.

Nightforce NXS 3.5-15x50
MLR Mil based Reticle
High Speed 1/10 Mil Rad 0-Stop turrets
50mm Objective.

Thanks again.

Oh well.. didn't get a reply :( so I got one from a member on the hide today :)
It's a 2010 model but no high speed turrets which I found odd.

3.5-15x50 MIL/MIL w/zero stop

Didn't get to shoot with it yet but just by looking through the glass during sunset, I could tell that at high mag, it's much brighter than my Mk4. And it's definitely higher resolution at any magnification. Very happy.

Welcome to the club! I just joined last week. Exact same scope as you. Was thinking about the FFP version, but the extra $500 or so was a bit too much for m blood....

Yeah, I don't find the need for FFP on a medium mag scope like the 3.5-15x. They should make an FFP for the 22x, 32x, and the 42x models.
