    I have two 6.5-20X Dead Hold Vipers, a 44 and a 50, one on a Varminter AR in .223 and the other on a Varminter AR in .308. Both of them are great scopes. Not QUITE as good as Zeiss, but as good as Leupold VXIII's and better than Monarchs for sure IMO.

    I also have a set of the Viper 15X50 binos, great glass for the cash.

    I used the waranty once, was getting some fogging in the binos (took agood spill with them on, could have damaged seals), they were back in under a week (they actually turned them in just over 24 hrs), no questions asked. No fogging either.

    Just purchased a Sidewinder in the new SRPro reticle and am very impressed with it! Haven't got it out to shoot yet, but have looked thru it in low light and the glass is very nice. Turrets are sturdy, clicks are solid, illumination is not overpowering (5 levels) a very robust scope for the money!
    Can't wait to get it out and do some testing with it.
