I recently traded a nightforce 5-22/56mm for a z5 5-25/52mm with ballastic turrents. I have not used it enough to speak for how durable they are. I can however say that the optics are better. A friend I work with looked through both the nightforce and the swaroski and after looking throught the z5 he said it was the best scope he had ever looked through. My cousin told me I was stupid for getting rid of my nightforce until he looked through my z5. At which time he told me I had made a good decision. I am the type of person who does not have alot of money to spend on hunting equipment so when I buy I want to get the best I can. I called several different people about which is better. From what I have seen and what people have told me is this. According to most the best optics are Schimdt and Bender tactical scopes. From there the choice becomes what do plan to do with your rifle. For hunting the Swaroski is best. For tactical or target shooting the nightforce is best. I have a hunting rifle so I traded my nightforce for a z5 and am very pleased. Also I live in Texas and have visited SWFA I can tell they are the best place to by from. Hope this is not to long.

I recall this day. I hope you enjoy that Z5. They really are excellent scopes.
