Inactive Viper® HS 4-16x44 LR™ Riflescope

Want to extend your effective shooting range at distances where bullet drop and wind drift become critical? Take a look at the Viper HS LR riflescope. The LR stands for long range — and we mean it. This riflescope features an exposed target-style elevation turret built for dialing elevation at extended ranges. The capped windage turret maintains the scope’s sleek lines and prevent it from hanging up on clothing, rifle cases or pack scabbards.

Viper HS LR™ riflescopes feature an advanced optical system highlighted with a 4x zoom range for magnification versatility. A forgiving eye box with increased eye relief gets shooters on target quickly and easily. Built on an ultra-strong 30mm one-piece machined aluminum tube for increased windage and elevation travel and optimal adjustment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from broke in 8mos I bought this scope over 8mos ago and set it up with a new rifle I purchased. I have always been a leupold person myself. Gave Vortex a try and it's been just ok. Feel the scope didn't track well from the beginning. When I made adjustments it moved more than the adjusted amount. This was a concern of mine from the beginning and it turns out my concern was real. While shooting some new reloads this week preparing for my hunt in a week I discovered my scope is broken and there is a part rattling around inside the tube. Must explain why I was having so many issues with this scope tracking or at least that is what I hope. Disappointed with the quality of Vortex seeing that this is what everyone talks about and the glass. Will not complain about the glass it's good and clarity was on par. Now let's see if they live up to there warranty claims.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 3 replacements and a repair and still problems I bought 2 of these scopes this spring, both were mounted on lr308 rifles. 1 I have been un able to get zeroed, the other the reticle canted after the first firings, I returned it and was sent a replacement, the replacement worked well for a while, but then started vertically stringing shots, I sent it back and it was repaired. Apon getting it back it would not hold zero. I then got a 3rd replacement and it had a line that looks like a Crack inside the lens, because it was hunting season I decided to try to use it anyway and worked for about 40 rounds and then the zero shifted several moa to the left. These scopes giving me problems have ruined my hunting season, resulted in a missed out of state hunt and a wounded and not recovered black bear and whitetail buck. That is to say nothing of the wasted time, ammo, and range trips and a years worth of hunting that is lost to faulty scopes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Scope! Go get you one. I absolutely love this Scope,The fit and finish is flawless, The glass is the clearest I've owned,very user friendly and accurate turrets,This scope has boosted my confidence @ all ranges during my use hunting,I will also say it has improved my shot accuracy dramatically. I don't own a custom rifle, Just an out of the box Ruger American .308 and this proves you don't need a high dollar rifle to shoot good but rather a quality Scope,Not saying I don't like the rifle just saying you won't have to break the bank to shoot with the big boy's!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product I bought this for a 300wsm browning h canyon speed and my goal was to keep the rifle as lights as possible so i was originally looking at buying a diamondback. Long story short Cabela’s has a killer deal on this scope around Christmas time that I couldn’t pass up. It’s a little heavier than I anticipated or even wanted for my rifle but this scope is clear, tracks perfect, and solidly fits my needs plus has extended the rifles capabilities more than I feel a diamondback would have. Can’t wait to try it out this fall on game. Ever one of my rifles is topped with a vortex check out the photo. Have not ever needed the lifetime warranty although that’s originally why I started buying vortex optics. The hells canyon with this scope is the second rifle in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around Optic........ This is the perfect all round Optic ive found so far, weather your hunting whitetail, hogs or shooting steel at long ranges the scope can do it! I have this one on a Savage 10PC 308 and it looks great. I've also matched up my favorite loads with the vortex ballistic software on their website and can easily hit 500yrds 12" steel. This scope looks great on traditional hunting rifles, tactical bolt guns, or a beloved MSR type rifle. All in all Vortex makes great optics and this one is one of my favorites. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far it's awesome! Let me start out by saying that i just mounted this on my Christensen Arms 6.5 Creedmoor two weeks ago and have only been to the range one time. Using a bore sighter i was able to zero in at 100 yards with just 4 rounds. I made the adjustments to the turrets (which are really smooth) as indicated by my ballistics chart and hit a 10" target at 500 yards first try. I was considering putting a ,000 scope on this gun as it is built for precision shooting, however, i think the Vortex is everything i need at a great price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used to be Nikon fan, until now. Bought the Viper HS LR 4-16x44 for my new Bergara B14 7mm mag. After purchasing, I decided I wanted to stick with a Nikon, because it's all I had ever purchased. Took the scope back to the store and went to get the Nikon. The salesman at the store all looked at me like I was crazy for swapping the Vortex for the Nikon. They all said Vortex was better quality, AND had a much better warranty. They even said Vortex was setting the standard for what the other name brands were doing as far as warranty and quality. After looking closer at it, I did not like Nikon's BDC reticle, and the glass did not seem as clear as the Vortex. Ended up re-purchasing the scope I had returned, along with the Vortex rings, and mounted it up, and I'm so glad I did. What an awesome setup. I'm a vortex fan now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear glass, solid, durable, reliable I love this scope, I mounted it on my Tikka T3 300 Win mag and it is a tack driver paired with this scope. My only qualm with this scope is how small the reticle is, not a deal breaker, nor would I steer anyone away from this product because of it. Not to mention you cant beat the warranty. Ultimately, this is why I opted for the Vortex over some other brands. I could not be more pleased with this scope, especially for the price. Cabela's had a great deal on this model.

Hi. I was looking at getting your (Viper HS LR 4x16x44mm) but I'm having a hard time finding them. I was wondering if you guys discontinued that particular model, and if not when more might be available? Thanks

The 4-16x44 Viper HSLR has been discontinued, we do still make the 4-16x50 Viper HSLR however.

Does the 4-16x44 have 75 moa elevation adjustment in each direction or is that split between up and down?

Asked by: John
The 75 MOA is total adjustment, so it would be about 37.5 in either direction.

What distance do you recommend using to zero this scope on a 7mm mag? 100 or 200 yards?

Asked by: Matt
The zero distance is personal preference, both distances would work well on your setup.

I’m need to mount the 4-16x44 HS LR on a Howa 1500 - 270 with standard barrel. Currently it has the niko sterling pica tinny rail that came with the combo package. Can you recommend a scope ring and should I replace the pica tinny rail?
