This product makes the more expensive ones hard to justify!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, MO Written on January 20, 2014
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...

Vortex Optics Viper HS 4-16x50 Long Range Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on July 14, 2013
This scope is well worth the money. Glass is pretty good compared to other scope in the same price range. The BDC is very useable and easy for longer range shooting. Both elevation and windage adjustment knobs are precise. Will definitely buy again.
Pros: Nice bright optics, BDC works well once sighted in at recommended distance, great value for the money
Cons: BDC only goes out to 500 yards...
Would recommend: Yes

Solid scope with average optics for this price range

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on April 22, 2012
I preordered this as soon as it was announced. (serial #49) bought solely on Vortexs reputation. This is a very solid well made scope that is just a little darker than a Nikon in the same price range. I have about 160 rounds of .308 (and a lot of hours bouncing around in the trunk) with no problems so far.
Pros: feels very solid
Cons: not as clear as others in this price range...
