I purchased a Viper PST for a 6.8SPC project that I built. The intent of the gun was medium game (hogs, javelina etc.) and the occasional range trip. I wanted an optic that I could use CQB style with both eyes open, but still have the magnification available for 100+ yard precision. The first thing that I noted was the bright and clear quality of the glass. No, it's not a Night Force, but for about $500 it's excellent. The etching of the reticle is extremely clear as well. The weight of the scope is not what I would consider ridiculously heavy, yet it is substantial and quite noticeable on the gun. It feels like it's nearly twice the weight of an ACOG. Not a deal breaker, just closer in weight to a traditional scope than to most quick aquisition/CQB style optics. The finish is excellent and appears to be very durable. It's been on a few excursions with me and has proven not to scratch easily. The turrets have a nice solid tactile feel. Though I have not shot a box test with it, trips to the range have proven excellent repeatability/RTZ with the elevation adjustment at least. Eye relief is very good, and the zoom feels smooth though it's a little stiff to turn. Perhaps it will break in more with use. One of the other reviews mentioned the illumination of the reticle being too dim. The first few settings are intended for NVG use, but the brightest settings could be slightly brighter. This would be more of a problem if the etched reticle were not there, but even without illumination the reticle is easy to pick up and place. I've used this one at night as well, with a rail mounted tactical light and a full moon. The light gathering of the glass is great, and the lower settings on the illumination work well to make the reticle visible without overpowering the rest of the sight picture or making your pupils bigger than they need to be. It's a nice touch that each brightness setting has an off position between it and the next setting. This is far better than having to turn multiple clicks to get to your favorit setting. You're only one click from off to whatever level of brightness you desire. My only two concerns are relatively minor. One relates to the illumination shutting off after a shot. I thought that the unit may have broken , but was able to get it to light up again by turning the illumination switch knob, but it happened again a couple of shots later. I removed and reseated the battery and so far so good. I've placed about 40 additional trouble free shots with no repeat of the issue, so reseating the battery may have taken care of it. When mounting the scope, I used my usual method of string and bubble levels to make sure that the reticle was perfectly leveled and squared with the gun. It appears to have a very very slight clockwise cant to the reticle, but it's not enough to make any negligble difference at the sub 400 yard distances that I'm using the scope. It's less than most would even notice, but I'm pretty meticulous on my assembly and adjustments. In all, it's worth the $500 or so street price that it's going for. Given the choice, I'd purchase it again.
