    newest line of night force for a $1000 check it out

    If nightforce built this scope like all the other ones this is going to be a awesome scope for a $1000. Its a lot lighter also most of the other one are 32oz and this one comes in at 26.9oz.

    Very interesting. I always wondered how long it would take for NF to make a more affordable scope. I'm curious to see some reviews.

    I saw the SHV at the SHOT show, and it looked like a great feature set for the money.

    They told me they were made overseas to their specs, like many of their other scopes.

    I think they will sell a pile of them.

    Len backus from longrange hunting.com sent me an email and he got some to try out. He said he was going to do some reviews on them. I'm tempted to get one when they come out.

    Bitter bulls- did they say at shot that the glass is the same in them as all the nxs. I have the f1 and the glass is very nice.

    I couldn't really evaluate the optical performance inside the Sands Expo Center, if that is what you mean.

    We will have to see how they turn out in the field, but it did seem like a nicely made scope with a great reticle.

    It was wondering where they skimped on the scope at. I was hoping the glass is the same quality as all the other high end nightforces. The turrets look a little less quality and wondering about the internal quality.

    Nightforce advertises that they are high quality scopes that are just not as "overbuilt" as the NXS.

    I read that they are built overseas to keep the cost down. They say they did not cut any corners on the scope and it's the same as the other more costly scopes.
