Re: Cheep scope for new rifle

Vortex Viper would be my suggestion, best bang for buck in that range.

Re: Cheep scope for new rifle

If you can buy a new Vortex Viper for 300 or even 500 bucks, let me know, I want a couple. Can't be done.

The OP wants a cheapo scope, not a mid priced scope.

Maybe the low end Vortex but I don'r know anything about them ither than they are Chinese.....

Re: Cheep scope for new rifle

edited...Sorry, I have a Viper 4-12 and it is great, Not sure of costs.

Diamond back 2-7 was good, so perhaps the 4-12 in that line would be OK????

As said, I think you may confusing it with the PST or something, I have a couple of Vipers that were in the very low $300's on sale.

Re: Cheep scope for new rifle

I have been looking at all the scopes that have been thrown out there and I think they all look good I also found the nikon monarch that looks pretty good and it ain't much more then the others anyone ever use a monarch? My grand father is a arms dealer so I can get everything for cost so I might be able to get a pretty good scope a bit cheaper then most folks. he td me he can get me a mark4 leopuld for less then 800 so I think that might be the way to go.

Re: Cheep scope for new rifle

I have a Vortex Viper on one of my rifles and a Monarch on another. I would choose the Viper every time. The biggest complaint about the Monarch is the size of the reticle, it is three or four times the thickness of the Viper. The monarch reticle will almost completely cover a playing card at 400 yards. The glass is pretty good on both but I like the Vortex better.
