Re: Vortex Scopes? Any Good?
Just my unscientific SWAG opinion:
If you looked at a Viper that was $800, I wouldn't shop there anymore. If you shop you can get a Viper 6.5-20 for low $300's to $400ish.
I am far from an expert, but I own a couple of Monarchs, a Viper, A couple of older VXII's, a VXIII and a Zeiss Conquest. I would put the Viper on par easily with the Monarch and VXII and damn close if not on par with the VXIII. The Zeiss is obviously the best of the lineup.
I think I paid $325 for the Viper, IMO it is good glass for that kind of money.
This opinion is worth exactly what you paid for it.
