Thats what I'm looking for, not a bad price either.
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 8:57:48 AM EST
$329???? If true, thats a damn nice price point.
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 8:58:13 AM EST
329.99?

Wow. Lower then I expected for a 1-6.


Either way. The market needed a lower priced 1-6. Not that it matters but I wonder of its even close to a true 1x? Or more along the lines of a Chinese leupold VX3 clone at 1.5-5.6
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 8:58:22 AM EST
Love the reticle.
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 8:59:51 AM EST
Wow, I almost bought a 1-4x PST yesterday, but this seems a lot closer to what I'm actually looking for.
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 9:00:32 AM EST
No chance of FFP? Still for that price point, nice optic.
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 9:04:10 AM EST
I'll probably pick one up if they turn out to be decent. The older I get the more I appreciate magnified optics.
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 9:04:18 AM EST
And I just bought a Viper PST.
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 9:04:26 AM EST
Looks nice.
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 9:06:14 AM EST
Interesting they they swapped to the BOBRO mount from the ADM.
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 9:14:58 AM EST
This is exactly what I'm looking for.
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 9:16:41 AM EST
I would imagine this will be a pretty popular scope among AR users considering the features and the price. Hell, they even have an unconditional lifetime warranty on the scope, so it isn't like giving one a shot will be a financial risk.

Fudge that looks good. May have to replace my Leatherwood CMR 1-4...
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 9:22:54 AM EST
i want it already. 329 wow.
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 9:23:21 AM EST
Seems interdasting. Lacks tactical turrets though.
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 9:24:31 AM EST
Is $329 the estimated street price? Website has MSRP at $429

How critical are tactical turrets when you have a BDC, plus I hear the ones on the Viper PST can be knocked out of zero easy, which is why I got the capped model.

This.

I'd expect the glass is not as good as the Viper PST, otherwise the price point makes no sense.

Still looks good.

I do have one complaint. Strike Eagle.Really?
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 9:31:19 AM EST
Hope the glass clarity is there. I like the reticle far more than the Horseshoe and dot.
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 9:32:05 AM EST
Hmmmm... Might have to check one out when they're released!

For what market this scope is aimed at, 3-gun, hunting etc, with a BDC reticle, tactical turrets are exactly what you don't want (in my opinion). For the most part, 3-gun guys don't dial for anything. They know exactly where their chosen load falls on the BDC, and they simply hold for wind. Exposed turrets tend to get 'accidentally adjusted' at the worst possible times.

Wonder how it will compare the pa 1-6 ffp. Eye box will be a big thing I'd look at.
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 9:39:23 AM EST
Dang, I already have a 1-4 but this is tempting at $330.

Eye box is key. If you can't quickly get on target it sucks.

If the street price really is 329$, I'll gladly pony up the extra 60$ for the Vortex product with the lifetime warrantee!!

I'm not arguing any of that. I was just saying that an inexpensive, quality 1-6 is not new to the market.

Considering the unavailability of the product until this last month, I barely consider the primary arms scope to be a viable "product". I highly doubt the Vortex production will be so low, as to sell out their handful of scopes in a day, and have a silly "one per household" limit. Hopefully the glass is a lot better than the PA scopes as well, which is far from impressive.

The 1-8x PA scope with the better glass and manufacturer has my interest though.

I shoot 3-gun and hunt grouses and both of my rifles has exposed turrets in their scopes(Vortex Viper PST 1-4x24 in 3-gun AR and Vortex Viper HS-T 6-24x50 in CZ 527 .223 bird rifle) and I never had any problems of accidental adjusting, Vortex turrets has pretty stiff clicks. Also, I don´t like BDC reticles because they are always dedicated for certain loads. For quick elevation correction I prefer reticle with mrad markings.
Let´s say that BDC reticle has marks that matches with 55gr 3000fps load and the ammo that I´m using is 77gr 2600fps, so the reticle´s range marks are for quite random ranges at that point.

But, that´s just like my opinion, man.

Probably I´m gonna buy that scope even with capped turrets.

This. SFP and capped adjustment knobs are better for 3-gun... Vortex nailed the specs on this. If the quality is good they'll sell 87 gazillion of them.
