    Thanks for checking. I talked with Skott and he said the same thing. However, after sending him a picture of my dot, he wasn't completely happy with what he saw so he issued a RMA. Even on my setting 10, it was still dimmer than the NX8 at 8. Apparently there was a previous case of something getting on the diode (or whatever the illuminator is) which was causing abnormal dimness. I don't know that I have the same issue (or if I even have an issue), but he wanted the scope back to check.

    It's always unfortunate when you have an issue with a product, but NF makes it so painless to take care of an issue if one does pop up.

    I was told if your max atacr brightness was closer to 5-6 on an nx8 then the illumination module needs to be re-aligned.

    We'll see what they say. I wouldn't be surprised if my ATACR was about a "6" (on setting 10) when compared to the NX8's "8." Regardless, I know they'll take care of me.

    It's interesting to note that the atacr illumination on max is still brighter than my kahles k16i in noon day sunlight. The nx8 is amazingly bright, though.

    In theory, this means the NX8 should have, functionally, a significantly longer battery life on usable illumination.
