Vortex Viper 4-12x40 PA Matte Riflescopes Product Info

Vortex Viper 4-12x40 PA Matte Riflescopes are ideal for hunting in open terrain and longer range hunts. The unique ViewMag adjustment lever of the Vortex Viper 4x-12x 40mm PA Matte Riflescopes allows you to make rapid power adjustments without ever taking your eye off your target, while the side parallax adjustment turret lets you maintain your shooting position and cheek weld while adjusting parallax.

The Viper 4-12x 40mm PA Matte Rifle Scope by Vortex consists of a rugged, durable 1" tube constructed of 6061 T6 aircraft-grade aluminum.
