Honest opinion on both or either if you have one....I have an opportunity opening up and I may be in a position to get one of the above...are you pleased with yours..would you buy another..is it worth the money!!!

Honesty only required from genuine owners please!

Deker,

I owned till recently a NSX 5.5-22 x 56 and I currently have one of the Bench Rest series on a pure target rifle. The NSX is a very nice scope, well made, clear wirh very crisp adjustments, reliable. They are quire big but unless you're putting it onto a light stalking rifle then ths is not s prblem. Low light performance is good but not in the legue of S&B (but the NSX are less than half the price). The zero stop option now available is a good idea, you can have 1/4" or .1 mil clicks. The illuminated ret. is either on or off, you have to set the intesity with a small crew driver 'at home' - not an in the field adjstment. They are second focal plain so any measurments from the reticule are only good at one or two mag settings, dependant on your use this might not be a problem, if thier FFP models ever emerge than I'd be interested again, but thats just me.

What are you going to use it for (and on)?
