Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex Viper 6.5-20x50 PA I'll buy one more for one of my other rifles! Full of easy to use features at an affordable price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase great price I bought this for my 243 shooting varmits at the 5 to 600 yd distance. Good clear magnification at this range. Looses some clarity at lower light levels but overall a good solid scope for a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value! I bought one of these about six months ago and mounted it on a Savage FCP-SR .308 WIN rifle. I have shot in a couple of local precision rifle type matches with it and have been very happy with it. It has held its zero perfectly and the glass is very clear! The Mil-Dot reticle is why I chose this scope and it has not disappointed me, I only wish there was a First Focal Plane option. This is an excellent optic at its price point!

Our Defender Flip Caps in sizes E-10 and O-50 will fit your scope while the Flip Cap Optic Covers in sizes 5 and 7 will fit. So which would I need? The E-10 and 0-50 or the sizes 5 & 7?

Asked by: JW2152
Those sizes are for our two different models of flip caps, both versions would work but choosing is a matter of personal preference. The Defender Flip Caps are a more durable flip cap and are better quality but the Flip Cap Optic Covers are less expensive.

For the VIPER 6.5-20X50 PA BDC RIFLESCOPE, what size eyepiece flip cover would I need? Also which cover would I need for this scope if I used a sunshade?Will a flip cover even fit the sunshade?

Asked by: JW2152
Our Defender Flip Caps in sizes E-10 and O-50 will fit your scope while the Flip Cap Optic Covers in sizes 5 and 7 will fit. The sunshade we sell is the same size as the objective of the scope so it would use the same size flip cap.

i just sighted in my 6.5x20x50 PA and my top turret cap wont return back to zero what i mean is that the turret when lifted and rotated will come to zero but it wont come down below the one on the inside static numbers shouldnt it come down to zero

Asked by: the brock
The turret is not designed to come down to the zero that is below the turret. Those numbers are rotation indicators that tell you where you are in the internal travel of the scope.

On the VPR-M-06BDC Viper 6.5-20x50 BDC if I have my zero sighted at 100 yards on full power (20x) but then have to shoot a deer at aprox 60 yards on 6.5x power will my cross hair zero remain true? I know the sub tens will be different, will the crosshair?

Asked by: JWTivo21
Your Zero will remain true regardless of the magnification. However, your point of impact will be different at 60 yards vs 100 yards, not by much though.
