Of those NF 2.5-10 offerings, I think the x42 is the heads and tails winner, but I will admit that even the one I still have and use on a 5.56 SPR is in danger of being replaced by the 1.5-8x that previously lived on this ACC. As I said in the beginning of the post, the benefit of something like an ACC is the light weight and handling but without the sacrifice of any significant range or accuracy. A medium-range optic like a 2.5-10, 3-9x just kinda seems to rob the user of some of that versatility without giving any benefit on the back end like one would with say an Ultra Short or ATACR4-16.


    This.

    I put a NF 2.5-10X42 on my LPR.

    If you might be doing a lot of longer shooting, the NF 4-16X F1 or the S&B Ultra Short would be the shizzle.


    And, an ACC just might show up HERE any day now...

    Does it change your opinion when you add an offset t1?

    On the ACC rifles, I've used the MK6 1-6x and the MK8 1.1-8x for LPV optics, also ran Aimpoints and higher magnification optics. With the compromise for my usage, I tend towards the MK6 1-6x. If the MK8 was lighter, I could tend towards that option, but for most of my uses, the weight doesn't justify it over the MK6.

    Originally how I had my ACC setup. This was my recommendation to Big Army for the DMR setup. Moved the CQBSS with H27 over to it when the T&E ATACR F1 had to go back to Nightforce. Not a fan of the weight penalty of the CQBSS, but its stout and I would take anywhere. I'm keeping the Mk6 1-6 on a 5.56 AR for now.

    Negative, you added cost and other complications but still top out at 10x. My thoughts on piggy back RMR/Micro's are primarily for personal security/CQ encounters while trying to get into position. I see where they make sense in competition as well. If one is going to do a fair amount of short-range work, it's not ideal given the issues that can arise from piggyback/offset optics (difficulty using support side/alternate positions). If you're going to roll with an offset RDS, might as well buy in and get the magnification on the top in when you have a short-range alternative.

    Appropriately enough as you were writing the above post, I was out banging steel today with some 5.56 guns (in order):

    - 16" gun w/ S&B 1.5-8x26 Short Dot
    - 18" gun w/ NF 2.5-10x42
    - 14.5" gun w/ S&B 1-8x24CC Short Dot

    I was playing at 200, 325, 450y, and 575y. I shot mostly on max 8x or 10x power and I really couldn't tell any real difference in going from 8x to 10x back to 8x. One thing I will note is that the parallax adj. on the NF is a double-edged sword. The 1-8x stuff doesn't have them (nor do they really need them given their purpose). Obviously, you can fine tune, but it's another thing to fiddle with when trying to work out or back in quickly transitioning between targets. Also I should note that I purposefully paint my targets to blend rather than pop/contrast with white or yellow. Today, dark OD green blended better with the brown/green backdrop of the young corn field.

    Are you using the LMT action spring and the supplied H3 buffer, or the H2 buffer and KAC spring in the action system? Either one has different traits.

    Not sure what to use yet. I have the lmt action spring but was thinking I'd run that with my KAC buffer. Is the sr25 buffer the same one that runs in the e3mod2s? I was Given the part number and it's the same as my mod 2 buffer.
