I am not saying they cant fail im just saying they (viper) have not been proven to fail any more than the more expensive scopes.

Re: Vortex PST Model Scopes on Big Magnums

Unfortunately I found this thread AFTER buying a Viper pst. 12 rounds through my 340 wby and the elevation turret came apart... came the @#$% apart. The knob part spins freely and the surrounding ring that shows how many revolutions the turret is at blew off. Called them today and the lady said they would repair it "if there is actually anything wrong after they inspect it". Pfft.

Re: Vortex PST Model Scopes on Big Magnums

would you ok this is the first viper i have heard of with problems. Im sure yours will get fixed or replaced as promised. Would you have rather bought a scope without the vip warranty?

I know it wasn't on a big magnum, but I just sent my vortex viper 6.5-20x50 back to them today. The elevation turret/knob came completely off. It did reside on a savage model 10 flcp-k (aka 24'' 308 with a brake) I guess we'll see how good the VIP warranty is.

Did you call or just send it in? They covered shipping when I called. I got my scope back in 2 days, it was a minor issue, but they were great
