This really is a great value, especially when you take into consideration the Vortex warranty. For this class of scope it is bright, clear and holds its zero really well on my 30-06. I love that you can see where you are at on the zoom from behind the scope (like you were looking through it) rather than having to look on top of the scope to see the numbers. You can get a feel for this in my included photos. It just makes more sense to build it that way and works really well. Everything about the scope feels tight and solid. Being that it's a 50mm objective it sits a little higher than I'm used to but that's part of the trade off for a bright scope and I can and have used this out to 400+ yards at 1/2 hr. after sunset with no problems. That's the brightness I need in my big game rifles so this works well for me. You can see from my photos that it's seen some use and abuse but I've yet to have a problem and even if I did I know I could count on Vortex to make it right. I'm very satisfied with my purchase!

Here is the all the bad parts to this scope-
Eye relief on max power is less than 2 inches. Even on low power, the eye relief is under 3 inches. If you have butler creek scope caps, the little tab that opens the eye piece will bite you on the nose. The edge clarity is horrible and you will need the sun shade when looking sunward. Maximum elevation adjustment was right at 58 MOA, not the advertised 65 MOA- The same as most Leupold 1 inch scope tubes (even though the Vortex is a 30mm tube). The adjustments are mushy and be careful not to pull up on the caps- a nice feature to zero the turret, but easy to mess up in the field.
Now for the worst part. When hunting this past Fall, the zero shifted over 2 feet at 100 yards. It took many shots to figure this out in the field. All this and the scope had not been subjected to excessive shock. After removing the scope and centering the crosshairs using a mirror, I flipped the scope over and gave it a gentle tap on the carpet. I then checked the zero in the mirror to see the crosshairs appearing to have shifted 1/2 inch in the scope. By reversing this procedure, the crosshairs returned to zero. So each time I had fired the gun, the crosshairs had the ability to shake all over.
Now the good:
The power adjustment knob is smooth and the power setting easy to see when behind the scope. The tube seems solid and rugged and has ample room for mounting on most set ups. The BDC reticle is simple and the subtensions easy to find on the website to use for your own calculations. Their customer service is great and they were willing to repair it. But in the end, customer service can't give me back a hunt you have draw in a lottery. For the price, I would go with a Leupold, but since I had been given a Swarovski, I replaced it with that and have no complaints except the cost to buy another for my next rifle! Perhaps I will give Vortex another try, but until then, my confidence in this scope is shattered.

Great scope

By 

from Edmonton, Alberta

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Viper Rifle Scope:

I mounted this scope on my Tikka T3 Lite rifle in .308 Winchester. So far, I have been really happy with it, it is accurate and holds a zero very nicely. The only thing I don't like is how tight the included scope caps fit over the lenses. I have only had it for 6 months or so, but before that I had a 6.5 - 20x50mm.

While hunting coyotes, I jumped a frozen stream and fell on my back, directly on my scope. My scope was so badly bent, I was through hunting for the day. I sent my scope in to Vortex. By return mail I received the following. Mr Butler. We are sorry that your scope is so badly bent that it is beyond repair. Please find enclosed a new scope as per our guarentee. Great news. great scope, great guarentee and great company.

Extremely Happy Camper

By 

from Charleston WV

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Viper Rifle Scope:

I have been looking for a really good scope (that I could afford) to put on my LRT-SASS. A friend of mine told me i need to check out Vortex scopes. I'm glad I did. The clarity of the scope and the brightness makes seeing a target easy. I was immediately comfortable with the Mil-Dot reticle. The VIP warranty is the icing on the cake. Really happy with this scope.

Great scope with amazing glass

By 

from Tiny, Ontario Canada

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Viper Rifle Scope:

I bought this scope about 1.5 years ago with high reviews. I was not disappointed. The glass is outstanding and really pulled in the light during the early morning and late evenings during deer season. I was able to clearly see through the scope while the rest of the group was heading in as they could not see anymore.

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Viper Rifle Scope:

Won't buy anything else! Very clear and love the BDC on it. I recently had my Nikon scope rebuilt and going through the warranty was a pain after about an hour of phones calls I finally figured it out. Vortex VIP warranty is awesome!!

Couldn't be happier

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Viper Rifle Scope:

Best scope I've ever owned. The BDC reticle is spot on. If you know your loads and combined it with the long-range ballistic calculator for text offers it is money in the Bank when you take that shot.

So far so good

By 

from Burley, Idaho

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Viper Rifle Scope:

My 300 winmag came in a packaged deal with a scope from another company. I used it for the first two years and thought it was okay. However, after last year's elk hunt I found myself wanting to get closer to the animal for a more precise shot, but my current scope wasn't getting me what I wanted. For Christmas I get a Vortex Viper 6.5 20-44. Although I have not had the chance to put it to use on an actual hunt yet I am amazed at the zoom and clarity so far on the range. I like the fine-focus knob on the side too.

So far the only downside is the stiffness of the zoom, but the salesman said that should loosen up a little with time, so we'll see. Can't wait for opening day!

Vortec user for life

By 

from Parker Kansas

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Viper Rifle Scope:

This is my second Vortex scope purchase, I`m a confirmed Vortex user for life now. I love the BDC on these scopes, the small hash marks are easy to use & easy to pick a spot at extended ranges! I really like the 30 mm tube on this scope. The finger adjustable windage & elevation turrets make adjustments a breeze! Really nice scope, really nice glass, & magnification!

Great Long Range Precision Rifle Scope

By 

from Port Huron, Mi

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Viper Rifle Scope:

I am a 3 gun shooter and wanted to try Long Range Precision Rifle shooting. I went to a match using another manufactures Scope and was unable to see targets at reasonable ranges. I purchased the Viper 6.5x20x50 Long Range Scope and the targets were much sharper and clearer in the glass. Now was I able to shoot targets any better? Some yes, others no. That is the operator error not the Vortex Viper. I continue to use the Viper 6.5x20x50 as my primary long range rifle scope.
