    I have two N/S. Same thing!!!!! N'/S is just cheaper. I don't mind either as they are both very good.

    Your poll is not working Errol.

    I dont think there is reason to quibble over the 2 scopes.

    Local support from Lynx just gives them that extra value.

    For what it' worth, here's my (layman's) view.
    We have both.
    I don't see no diff really. I imagine I can see a wee bit more clarity in the Lynx sometimes, but maybe it's because I paid a wee bit more for it (wishfull thinking)?
    To me they feel mechanically the same too, they both have the same 'play' if you crank the wheel to opposite ends and with small increments etc.
    Sofar neither has givin any bit of trouble whatsoever (the Nikko Stirling is the older in this case = more milage/usage), so I cannot comment on the service.
    But then again both the scopes come from the same reliable source, so I don't expect any problems.
    Verdict:
    Lynx=happiness
    Nikko Stirling = happiness

    I guess it boils down to the best deal you get for your money, as both are somewhat scarce.

    Moose,
    The Nikko Stirling does have a Nitrogen port.

    IMHO I they are both manufactured by the same company to the same specs. Only difference is the name. The service in Jo'burg is a little quicker.

    Jason you suffer from verbal diarrhea and you know it. As I said before;Lynx is behind the time with their FT reticle.
