Hey everyone, new to the forum. Bought a Scar 17s a couple months ago and absolutely love it so far. It is my first nice rifle and with it my first nice optic. I started out with a 1-4x and decided I wanted something with more range and had my heart set on a Nightforce 2.5-10x. Stopped by my local Cabela's but the selection was slim and the 2.5-10x NXS was on back order. I noticed a Nightforce box sitting in the back of the case gathering dust and I asked to take a look. It was a 3.5-15x NXS Mildot reticle with a price tag of $1799. I couldn't tell if it was the F1 model or not so I asked them to scan it and see. Well it was the older SFP model but it was on clearance for only $899. Needless to say I bought my first Nightforce scope! It is a little bigger an more glass than I wanted or need but I couldn't pass it up. And it is actually not as heavy as it looks. The glass is stunningly clear, great reticle, and nice illumination. Can't wait to stretch it out at real distance.

New to the forum as well. Hi!

That looks awesome! Holy crap I bet you can shoot into the future with it! Anxious to find out how far you can reach out and touch something with that.

Welcome man! You actually have a great range of optics now, your 1-4 will serve you well out to 3-400 or more but it combined with your nightforce will essentially afford you the entire spectrum of distances the 17 is capable of shooting which is awesome. I essentially have the same thing. I too want a 2.5-10 but for now i have an swfa 1-4 and a primary arms 4-14. Its nice to have both to use depending on where i am.

Welcome, that's a pretty good deal you got on the NF and that sunshade makes it look looong. You aren't substituting are you. :mrgreen:
