Legacy Reviewer's Review of Vortex Optics Viper HS 4-16x50 30mm Long Range Scope

I was very pleasantly surprised when I received this scope. The quality and craftsmanship appears to be first class. I was also surprised that the scope came with a sunshade, that was not mentioned anywhere in the description. I have only used the scope once, while breaking in the new rifle that I put it on, but the tracking seems to be very accurate, and the clicks are crisp and very easily indexed. I almost passed this one by based on the elevation turret having 1/2 moa adjustment, as opposed to 1/4 moa. But after much thought, this really offers more opportunity than it does limitation. The 1/2 moa only limits the degree of adjustment by 1/4 moa @ 100yd. That equates to 1-1/4" at 500yds or 2.5" at 1000 yds, and only in the elevation aspect (the windage turret is set up for 1/4 moa). Seems to me that if you know one click puts you 1/4" high, and one click the other way puts you 1/4" low, it is easy to compensate, and if you are a ggod enough shot to be able to tell the difference, you are probably good enough to make the adjustment. Great scope!
Pros: Loaded with valuable features. Great Price point
Cons: Magnification adjustment knob is very tight, and difficult to turn
