Thanks for any replies
The Viper series is very good glass. I would say that they are at least as good as Leupold VX-3's, Nikon Monarchs, etc. if not better.
We also have some nice features that they don't have, such as the Mag View indicator, lets you see the magnification from behind the scope, and zero-reset turrets that don't require tools. Simply pull the turret up and turn the dial back to zero.
I haven't seen a lot of guys here on ar15.com using them, but if you check over on Sniper's Hide they have good things to say about them, if you want to get some other opinions.
We also have a dealer locator on our website here
. You might want to try that and see if you can find someone locally who has one so you can look at it in person.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks!
