    I had a problem with a nxs ( I screwed up the 0stop) called the factory got a # to use and was told 4 weeks or so. Got it back within two weeks. Problem fixed and scope checked out. No cost on a repair that was my fault.
    Good poeple.

    I've often wandered if Cecil Tucker could do his conversion on one. It seems to have solidified a lot of Leupolds over the years. But don't think it works with variable power scopes, or at least I've never seen one.

    Good luck acquiring one, but if you do I'll donate $100 to the cause. I've told you how much I miss mine. If you get the chance to check one out and are able to make some suggestions to Nightforce maybe you could talk them in to putting the windage turret on the left too. That would be awesome. The fixed scope in Brackney rings I've been shooting lately is set up that way and I REALLY like it. Our right hand should be for bolt and trigger only, would imagine same would be best for F-Class.

    Burris used to have a "Posi-Lock" system on their variable power scopes. I had a couple old Signature Series scopes with it many years ago.

    Anyhow, with the old Posi-Lock system, you adjust the turrets then lock them in place with the Posi-Lock knob. Loosen it to adjust turrets and lock it back down when done. Although a little tedious, it actually worked quite well. It was effectively a "Tucker" style modification except it locked the turrets and reticle in place instead of just applying extra spring pressure to the erector like the Tucker does. Even mounted in the same position as the Tucker mod so it locked both the windage and elevation at the same time.

    I bet some sort of modification along one of those lines would cure a 'Wandering Comp' scope right up ;)

    I am thinking a coil spring housing, but the posi lock is not out of the question. A useless pile of parts and empty wallet are just as likely too.
