Trijicon vs Nightforce
« on: December 13, 2012, 11:54:14 AM »
I am thinking of trying one of these on my 7mm Tikka T3. I have a Nikon Monarch Gold on it right now, 2.5-10 x 50mm, but might put that on my .243 or .257 WB Mag.

I was looking at the Trijicon Green full duplex 2.5-10 x 56mm, not much for mil dots or BDC systems, I always figured it's better to know your rifle then depend on a scope. The Nightforce looks like a good scope but really seems more like a tactical thing.

Anyone have any experience with either of these products?

No experience with the Trijicon scope.  For the NF if you are not twisting turrets it would be a bit of a waste money I have friends that run them on their LR rigs honestly the glass is not as sharp as it should be to my eyes.  I do believe that they have stronger return on the turrets then say Leupold

When I set up my last rifle, I seriously considered a Trijicon. That is, until I looked through them. The glass is not nearly as clear as one would expect. The yellow and green reticles are very hard to see. I ended up with another Leupold in the vault and have no regrets.

For a long range tactical scope i would go with nightforce hands down.  I think the scope is great in my opinion if the are good enough for US marine snipers they are good enough for any civilian shooter.  I do like the concept of trijicon but i don't like the thickness of the cross hairs and the 5-20x50 only has 50 moa of adjustment.  For those reasons i would not buy one.  To throw on a hunting rifle im sure it would be fine but you really can't tell how good the glass is until you get it into the field.  For my hunting rifles i stick with leupold.
