    New Scope: Nightforce NX8 4-32

    After consulting nf1e, I ordered the Nightforce NX8 4-32 and got a generous military discount. It finally came in the mail today:

    I know it’s not the “arrow but the Indian” but owning an ACOG really spoiled me with its superb clarity. With the military discount and nf1e’s recommendation I figured I couldn’t go wrong. This should help with my quest to hit consistently at 600 yards.

    I’m sure I will have questions on this scope down the road.

    What torque do you use/recommend for tightening the scope ring screws?

    20-25 inch lb for the rings and 65 inch lb for the cross bolt works for me.

    NF is good stuff.

    I remember being told years ago. “Spend twice as much for the optic as you did for the rifle.”
    On my honor,
    I will never betray my badge,
    my integrity, my character,
    or the public trust.
    I will always have
    the courage to hold myself
    and others accountable for our actions.
    I will always uphold the constitution,
    my community, and the agency I serve.
