No, I totally agree. The Barrett 107 and 82 are great rifles but not as accurate as even the AR50. They do however allow for a putting numerous shots downrange fast... I am not knocking NF scopes, just saying that USO and S&B are slightly better IMHO. Most shooters don't want to drop $3500+ on a scope. March and Premier make great scopes too, but I have never had one on a 50. I know he will be happy with the NF, I just personally would not pick them over the others I mentioned. I never liked the adjustment knobs, and the last one I had went back twice because you could not feel the click when adjusting. It wasn't wore, just overlooked by Q&A.
