Re: Vortex Viper PST Reticle Wear
Thanks for posting this.
I would send it back ASAP.
I don't much care if it's generally considered "normal" for a product - it shouldn't be there. To me, if i found out this was not unheard of i'd return/exchange it and let it be someone else's problem.
This is an ~$1,000 optical device and should be from defects like this. If the internal coating is chunking off now, whats to say more won't come loose?
I wouldn't tolerate defects like this in my camera lenses or my bino's and certainly wouldn't tolerate it with my scope.
