BT1 - Steve Krauss, did some testing with his new equipment today. The venue was a private range and the results were quite interesting. relluj+vSyCj0EloCLVGRQ by Larry Malinoski, on Flickr From the Nightforce point of view the first success was a BR 12-42 that was absolutely perfect. Next Nightforce was a Competition model that had been used a few years in major shoots. Failure. Details should come from Steve but failure is the word. It moved a lot and never stopped. XAqvA07KQCmMjP1bfYTb8Q by Larry Malinoski, on Flickr The next Nightforce tested was my Competition. I had just sent it back to Nightforce for inspection. They did more than that. It PASSED. There was a hard-to-detect initial movement and after that none. We both looked for shot after shot. Nothing we could quantify. I just called Nightforce and told them their inspection/repair worked. They were quite appreciative. If you are a fan of the Leupold Competition - test it. The one Steve tested was a joke. Not all the March scopes passed. One 80X one was awful. Another 60X one moved while the same model of another 60X passed. The High Master was trouble and required some ring adjustment. It then seemed to be OK but not perfect. t+fabZtTQJGV%cW1Pvhf%Q by Larry Malinoski, on Flickr Hope I got the results correct. Personally I was surprised to see March failures. Also happy my Competition passed. My counclusion is to test before assuming a certain brand or model is always perfect or always a failure. Like so many issues in life, it can go both ways.
