    Hi Hardy,

    Th Mk4 M1 is a fixed magnification scope, the base mag on the model I own being 16x then fitted with a 2x converter to bring it up to 32x. The base scope is a military grade sniper scope and is shall we say 'rugged', the turrets are designed for dialling. The Mk4 is a beautiful scope for FT, but you need to learn to handle the fixed magnification.

    I have also owned the 20-50x50 sidewheel, based on the vari-XIII long range target scope - but for some reason I just could not get on with it, but NeilM who I sold it too gets on with it superbly.

    I just sold my 18-40x50 sidewheel and that was a very nice scope, I found it a lot easier to use than the 20-50, but I still prefer the Mk4 hence that is the scope I have kept.

    Most people would say go for the 20-50, but if possible see if you can try one before ordering.

    Hope that helps,

    Dale

    Hardy,
    NXS (SideFocus) can't focus down to FT distances, the other Nightforce can (front adjustable objective)
    Focus on the Leupold

    Hardy,

    I have not really had an opportunity to try the NXS other than on centre-fire rifles so I could not give you an honest opinion of its suitability. I do know that as standard it only focusses down to about 50 yards, but can (with difficulty so I am told) be adjusted for airgun use.

    Sorry can't give you a better answer than that at this time.

    In respect of the PR/Leupolds they can more or less be buitl to your requirements.

    Saw that on the UK forum aswell Urabus, (50ft adapter), from what I could work out on the leupold site it allows you to focus on closer distances.
