New Optics from Vortex and Nightforce
« on: December 05, 2016, 04:39:31 pm »
So the gun groups I visit on Facebook are talking about the new optics from Vortex and Nightforce.

Nightforce is planning to release an ATACR F1 with a 7-35x magnification with a Mil-C reticle.  Apparently some have had a preview of this rifle as Scott Satterlee was running this scope down at CORE Shooting Solutions.  One nice thing is that it will focus down to 10 yards with 100 MOA of elevation, but other than that, it doesn't appear that too many people are excited for it because it will have an MSRP of $3600 - $4000.

Highlights:
7-35x magnification range
First focal plane reticle, ED glass
100 MOA elevation travel
10m to infinity parallax adjustment
Generous FOV
Standard ATACR feature set
US MSRP $3,600-$4,000
SHOT Show Release

There will also be an SHV 5-20x56 and a couple other scopes.

Vortex, on the other hand, will be putting out a Gen 2 version of the PST, available Spring 2017.

Quote
1-6×24: Now even more versatile, the new PST Gen II 1-6×24 picks up right where the venerable 1-4x left off. With a true 1x on its low end and a monstrous eyebox for close-quarters, rapid acquisition, shooters can easily engage targets in the tightest of scenarios. On the high end of its zoom spectrum, an even more versatile 6x facilitates accurate mid to long-range engagements. A side illumination adjustment, coupled with low-drag capped turrets make for a sleek and streamlined profile. Inside, the same VMR-2 reticle from the Razor Gen II 1-6, with its daylight-bright center illuminated dot, is standard and available in MOA or MRAD.

2-10×32, 3-15×44 and 5-25×50: Meet your new group of long-range workhorses. Whether you’re topping off a DMR-type build or a PRS rig you’ll be pushing to the limits, there is an option just for you. Tall, tactical turrets and a side focus parallax adjustment with integrated illumination help dial in your shots for ultimate precision.  Each model features the patented RZR Zero Stop, taken from our proven Razor HD 5-20×50 riflescope, to ensure you have an accurate and reliable return-to-zero – every time. Reticles include our New EBR-4 and EBR-2C. Available in MOA or MRAD to match your turrets. First Focal Plane reticles are available on select models.

    I haven't heard anything yet but they should be similar to the currentt generation.  That's typically what they do when they introduce a new generation.  Then the only generation gets sold at a discount.

    One of my friends just brought in the Nightforce 7-35 with MIL-R reticle.  $3492 plus tax.  Ouch. that comes out to $3731.20 after tax.  This would be perfect on my Anschutz.
