Viper® HS 4-16x50 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 5 out of 5 by from Bought a second one for my personal rifle. Bought it for my daughters 270 WSM, after install and sight in at 100 yrds we ordered the custom turret from Kenton industries and after a couple of weeks we received the turret. After a quick double check of the zero we installed the turret. We started at 400 yrds and started to check the accuracy of the different yardages I was more than suprised that we were spot on at 870 yrds. This scope has not only impressed me but my daughter confidence at ranges we normally wouldn't shoot has increased. I have just purchased the same scope for my own gun. Thanks for making great product with a warenty that is second to none.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good scope for the money The glass is good. Very clear and pulle in light well. Turrets have good positive clicks and parallax nob is smooth. Overall I like this scope a lot. A couple of things I don't care for; I don't like the tall turrets, they catch on everything, I don't like the dead hold bdc on my 22-250, I think it would be better suited for a different round. There is one thing that I really don't care for at all, that is the size of the ocullar apparatus. It's very difficult to get the scope down low on the rifle. If this is something that could be addressed in the future I would have these on all of my rifles. I feel for the price and features you couldn't do better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome glass Great price Having been a Nikon lover for years a good friend of mine slowy wore me down to try Vortex glass and I haven't looked back since. I purchased the Viper HS-LR in 4-16x50 with BDC reticle mounted it on 7mm rem mag with 20 moa base and warne rings. Living in Idaho with alot of wide open space and long range hunting this scope has performed flawlessly with the BDC or dialing adjustments with turrets and they track very well and precise. I have order another Viper scope this time an HST 6-24x50 SFP with MOA reticle and I'm sure I'll love this one just as much. Vortex customer for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No doubt this one will sit on my best rig forever... I absolutely love this scope. When I was ready to step it up a notch with my optics, I knew I was going with vortex for their incredible warranty. I wanted to good hunting scope that would handle Texas Whitetail at 100yds and Western Elk at 300yds. I was not disappointed with this scope. The Clarity and Durability are top notch. I am not one to be able to drop several thousand on a extremly high in scope, but you get what you pay for. This was a great option for a budget minded hunter in look for a top notch optic that wasn't​ going to take a few years to pay off. This will last a lifetime, and I am extremely pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex is hands down the best bang for your buck! I've never been one to spend more money on a scope than I did the gun but I have heard a lot of good things about vortex so I decided to purchase a Viper HS-LR 4-16x50 and it was the best decision I've ever make. It is the clearest scope I've ever owned. From dawn to dusk this scope gives me the clarity I need to make a perfect shot. Turret clicks are very responsive and tactile. This scope holds its zero and returns to zero exceptionally well. I've never been so amazed with a riflescope. This scope is amazing quality. I will never buy another brand of optics again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More bang for your buck I’m new to hunting. I’m 37 and never owned my own rifle/gun. Living in the age of information, it was easy to put in hours of research. I decided to spend my hard earned money, I think, on a great rifle scope combo. My first rifle/gun ever is a Bergara B-14 hunter 7mm rem mag. Priced at around 0. It’s paired with the Vortex Viper hslr 16x50 scope. Priced at around 0. I decided On this scope for 2 reasons. Long distance target practice and hunting. I’ve been able to hit targets at 500 yards so far. Great glass for the money spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it I have always bought nice rifles and didn't spend much on optics. Go figure that i never was happy with how they shoot. Well I finally dug deep, opted to ask forgiveness from the wife, and stuck this baby on my Savage 10pc in 308. I never could get groups under 1.25 before. Now they are in the same hole and all i changed was the scope. I am beyond pleased! good features, great glass, and a price that won't have you sleeping on the couch too long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the best! I bought this rifle scope about a year ago. It has met and exceeded my expectations over and over again. Bright and clear glass at first light which also holds true for evening light. I've never had it fog up. Usually hunting seasons for me are very cold, and all the dials still function flawlessly and the glass is always clear. The BDC reticle is dead on. I have my zero set at 200 yards and I've confidently killed animals at 500 yards using the BDC. I will never own another optic brand! Between the unlimited lifetime warranty and the quality of product you can't go wrong!
