Israeli Nimrod Scope? Any help would be appreciated
This is a discussion on Israeli Nimrod Scope? Any help would be appreciated within the Optics forums, part of the Gun Forum category; Can someone fill me in on the details of these scopes? They must be pretty rare....I sure can't find any.
It looks like the reticle ...
Wow! Clearly, you're a scope aficionado! What is your opinion of the Nimrod? I've heard that it is more or less a higher quality Dragonov scope. I say that because it supposedly has a Dragonov style reticle?
I am a fan of the Dragonov reticle but the scopes that I've seen also have the same optical quality of looking through the bottom of a vodka bottle.
What is your opinion of the Nimrod in comparison to other scopes of that era? The Nimrod's that I have seen for sale are going for very hefty price tags...

Somewhere I have the original paperwork for the NimRod scope that came with it. That might take some time to find it.
The Nimrod had a sniper reticle that was similar to the Kahles ZF84/ZF95 sniper scopes. It was made in Japan, and only a few good samples remain.
The second IDF run scope (Photonics) was identical to the Kahles ZF95; and it was made in Germany. There were more of these made (and available) than the Nimrod, and is considered a better made scope than the Japanese Nimrod.
The Nimrod is more expensive because of it's rarity. There was a nice hard case made for the field transportation of the scope/mount combo, but have only seen pics. There were a couple of sets that popped up on the FALfiles recently for sale.
