Re: FS/ Vortex Viper Scope's- Price drop

I bought 2 PST's very early this year from Optics Planet and one PST about 45 days ago from Cameraland.

I had contacted Vortex about the disposition of the latest PST because the OP website stated on 'back order'. Vortex directed me to Cameraland that had the model in stock in wanted so thats where it came from. I might add that Camerland was quicker on delivery and processing compared to OP on the first 2, by almost 3 days. Both OP and Cameraland are the same price across the board on Vortex Optics and both have free shipping.

I do that Dvor thing as well and have gotten some great deals on equipment but never Vortex stuff.....wish they did... For example, I bought a G2 Gunrunner in multicam for less than 180 bucks delivered, but you have to watch the sales closely.

I was a little disapointed with the Gunrunner. For all the hoopla and Eblerstock's website, I expected the pack to be American made. It's not. It's made in some Pacific Rim country and shipped in, in a container..... My bubble is burst.

Concerning the this thread... His pricing is in line with the dealers and it's not really germane if, in fact, he's a dealer or not. The Vortex warranty encompasses ALL the optics no matter what the originating dealer or individual, forever. Thas to say, if it has an issue, Vortex isn't going to ask where it came from, they are just going to replace it.,,, (not repair it).

Keep in mind that warranty for 99% of these scopes is a replacement. It's inherently cheaper to replace a defective scope with a new one, than repair it, especially when Vortex has their optics built offshore, sort of like the Eblerstock G2.

What yo see on a website is what it really is, for the most part, is usually smoke and mirrors. Not always, but usually.

Re: FS/ Vortex Viper Scope's- Price drop

I received my scope today, I had been out of town on business...

..however the scope was previously mounted, slight ring marks on the rear rings...and smudges on the front objective lens...

if I had known this....I would have not paid MAP...

I believe I'd be pissed.

Not good.
