I’m looking at getting a FFP with ebr-7cGEN2 for me and my sons. We still have gen 1’s but the GEN2 EBR-4 SFP is the best to us. As the other poster said the setting of the zero stop is a pain. Other than that the GEN2 are a just a bit heavier but worth it as everything else is better.
Don’t let them scare you. If you graduated high school or work with your hands, and can read directions, you can set the rzr zero stop in the gen 2 viper.I’m looking at getting a FFP with ebr-7c
have you used the EBR-2c?Don’t let them scare you. If you graduated high school or work with your hands, and can read directions, you can set the rzr zero stop in the gen 2 viper.
Ebr7c is fine. Reticles are a preference really but I suppose anyone who thinks is “busy” has never looked through any horus ever. The reticle at x25 is hardly usable for hold FYI.
The illumination controls are for sure stiff. Be prepared to use your man hands.
How does the xtr ii glass compare to the pst gen 2?I have a pair of the 5-25 PST Gen II in FFP with the 2C reticle as they are great scopes for the money. As mentioned, not a super intuitive zero stop to set, but several good YouTube videos out there explaining the process very clearly. Better scope overall than the Gen I for sure. The other scope I own in the same price range is the 5-25 Burris XTR II. It is also a great scope for the money. You can find them for pretty good prices now that the Gen IIIs are out. Only downside with Burris is you may need to purchase new rings as the Burris has a 34mm main tube vs the 30mm tube on the PST.
I have asked myself that question multiple times. Not much help, but I'll just say that I like both. There seems to be days when I favor the XTR and think the glass is noticeably better, then I switch guns and feel the PST is better. Indecisive? I don't know. I have had other shooters using both scopes on the same day who had a definite preference of one over the other, but it has never been biased toward one versus the other. I do know that I have had NO issues at all with tracking or return to zero with either scope and regularly shoot to 1000 yards and beyond.How does the xtr ii glass compare to the pst gen 2?
