    I have a BCM 14.5 ELW with a pinned a FOSSA I am seriously considering topping with a NX8 for the sole purpose of the tiny footprint and low weight.
    The simple fact of the matter is this, America has never not been great.

    Just received my NX8 in a Scalarworks 1.93" mount. Very nice package under 23 total ounces. It's going on a Triarc 12.5" with an OSS Ti can...good balance, lightweight, manageable overall length...

    Looking forward to the NF NX8 1-8x arriving from Brownells shortly. Need a decent mount for it, thinking about Larue as I have a few of them but also looking at Scalarworks as well.

    A question for all.......
    Once you have the diopter set, do any of you see a blurry image on the sides around but it’s clear in the middle? Am I doing something wrong?

    I had something similar to what you’re describing. Wasn’t full on blurry but there was a noticeable difference between the edges and center of the lens.

    I corrected it by completely resetting the diopter. For me, I screwed it all the way in and then backed it out IIRC, 2 turns. From there I started adjusting the diopter until it was set for my eyes.

    I like pretty much anything Larue. I’ve used their mounts for a few years and have never had an issue. Only recently did I go with the Nightforce Unimounts. I don’t plan on removing the optics and moving them around to other rifles so I didn’t need the QD.

    I prefer the NF mounts when I don’t need QD and the Larue mounts when I need QD.

    Ok, sounds like I still need to play around with it a bit.

    I have the Brownells mount that was free and am using that until the Larue shows up. Just after I ordered the Larue (showing in stock) I got notification that it was back ordered.

    Excellent company to deal with. I have one of their demo mounts and it came in a factory sealed package.

    I may have to switch, maybe I can cancel my order with Larue.
