Not concerned about weight I'm 25 and phiscally fit. So you would say the vortex viper pst has more bag for the buck. and better glass than the swfa?

    The 1" tube I could Live with but the mil/moa and SFP are the really big points against it. Mainly the SFP as this will be used for ranging.

    Please correct me if I'm missing something!!

    Thanks shifty
    Your not missing anything.

    So you think that the SWFA has a better glass than the vortex? I have seen alot of people say the vortex is also excellent optics for the money.

    Recently I have been thinking prety hard on here about vortex. I have seen guys on here have a couple here in there sig. and they love them.

    Just a big decision and want to make sure it is the right one. Thanks for your help

    Shifty
