Nightforce has been putting out some high quality videos from the shows like SHOT and NRA, now they are making them available to watch
Didn’t they stop making the BeAST?No need to torture test them the Beast is garbage out of the box. I've seen two brand new Beasts where the POI shown by the reticle shifted 6-10 inches at 500 yards based on where the last zooming motion was up or down. You can not make up for piss poor design with some flashy video.
Industry leading product and company in many ways.
The one that they could do without is the industry leading arrogance if you call with an issue. I understand that fielding calls from Joe Public probably wears you out some. Might be a tad out of touch with the market in that regard.
That was my deal as well. Once I started using them, they quickly surpassed everything else for me. I own a few other scopes still, and they do their jobs, but when it absolutely has to work, I grab a NF.That is seriously insane. I own 2 NF scopes now, and am waiting “patiently “ (unless you ask Sonny ?) for my 3rd, an ATACR 1-8. I have others, but I’m genuinely getting sucked in to the NF family. Every single one I own has been perfect. Tracks true, box test showed it to be perfect. I don’t drive spikes with mine, but the peace of mind of knowing what they are capable of is comforting. I am a full time instructor, and I absolutely, whole heartedly can tell me guys and gals that ask “NF will work on demand, and WILL NOT let you down.”
Now just waiting on that 1-8........?
Love my 7-35 mil-c from Mike and Richard at CST.. Great optics! Also have a 4-16 and it's a great optic as well, thought about selling it to fund a larger optic but I'm backing off for now...
Pretty sure I've seen similar or worse tests with Swarovski, Vortex Razor, USO and I'm sure many others.Funny how none of these other optics companies will put their money where their mouth is and submit their top dollar shit to torture tests like this for everyone to see....
the only thing is.... that’s a really old nxs scope. you could go both ways with that.
Man, I'd like to see those videos.. if you dig them up that would be great.
I'm not arguing your opinion... Just offering an alternate perception perhaps.Wow! I love good manipulation. Old NXS, shooting the ice at a point which breaks the ice but not the scope, using the empty bit of the scope to hammer into pine, and shooting tannerite at 50 yards.
This site used to be about accuracy and precision - not bluster and snake oil.

Do you think that the process of freezing the scope into a block of ice would legitimately "weaken" the scope or at least make it more succeptable to breaking under stress or impact? I believe most devices in the optics world will have a optimum operating temperature range that is probably just below freezing up to just above 120 degrees. It does seem that freezing the scope and then abusing it may still be a good measure to test durability.
The zero was not changed and the targets were at (max) 50 yards. This is not precision shooting, rather it is a tent peg test lubricated with a hint of snake oil. Good on them I say, but I think it does the brand more damage than good.
