Re: Vortex Viper Quality - Impressed

Forrest Ebert, I don't think anyone is saying that the Vortex viper HD and PST's are better than NF, Zeiss, S&B, etc... What we are saying is they appear to be very good scopes for the money, and I personally believe they feel like quality as far as their features go, specially for the money.

I mounted this on the rifle I will be hunting Elk with this year which is a 300 Ultra Mag. shooting a 211 grain Bob Cautarucio custom boatail at 3150. I know it's not a 50mm but the light gathering consistant positive clicks and their version of Zero stop with shims has to say the least impressed me as a very sound package! Looking forward to test it in the field this October. I have NFS, Zeiss,Leu & Kahles so we shall see if it does indeed hold up to them which I feel it will.

On a scale of 1-10 with NightForce being a 10, Leupold bring a 9 and so on, Vortex rates (IMO), 7-8 in quality of image and a solid 10 in value.

I said before, at least with my 60 plus year old eyes, the PST's image quality and any magnification is as good as my mark 4.

They will never be a Schmidt and Bender or a March or a US Optics but for the price point and warranty, it's hard to beat a Vortex.

Just hope the 'fame' don't inflate their ego's too much......

I'm anxious to get a pair of Bino's. I hear the Vortex bino's are also a good value. Nor Swaro's mind you but again, for the price point, excellent value....
