    Wanted - Nightforce NXS 8-32x56 or Similar Type (other manufacturer)

    Looking for the above or something similar(S&B, Leupold etc). IOR would also be seriously considered.

    Must have a max mag of at least 30.

    2nd hand as can't afford new prices!

    Toby,

    Might be worth looking at Minox - they do a ZA5 6-30 x 56 which you should get for around 650 - new.
    The other option would be a Nikon Monarch 8-32 x 50 - probably closer to 500 new.

    Both good glass at a more affordable budget and easier to source than those you have mentioned secondhand.

    I'm looking to spend around 1k and want to get the best I can with that budget. Was talking to some chaps today that reckon the NF is within that budget.

    I'm still considering whether I really need to get that higher magnification, but I'm looking to shoot out to 1000-1200yds...

    it's a bit of a tricky one really, I used to have a Leupold mk4 8.5-25 which was great, but I only really shot up to 800yds max so I'm not sure it would be enough. Plus If I get something with higher mag the optics will be better at the 25-30 mad range which is probably where i'll be using it. to.

    Will have a look.

    Kind of leaning towards IOR now after some research.

    Toby,

    I had a 8-32x56 Niteforce on a 7mm Rem Mag custom rifle. I think it was worth about a grand second hand, so within budget. The scope was great on that rifle, which was built for F Class target shooting. However, I think there are better light gathering scopes if you're using it for deer at first and last light.

    Cheers,

    Bob

    As said above, I'm moving more towards an IOR 9-36x56, I've heard good reviews about them from owners and on the web. Plus the price of a new one is only just a bit more than a 2nd hand NF. It will be used for target shooting on this rifle (6.5x55 Dave Tooley) so light won't be that critical, but thats at the current moment, that may change.

    Thanks for your views though.
