Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome scope! Mounted this on an 18 inch spr 5.56 build. Scope does everything I want it to and more. For the price, glass clearity and adjustments are perfect. The turrets are simple and easy to use. This has become my go to scope on multiple rifles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright scope! I bought the 2.5-10x44 HS to put on my Browning Abolt II .30-06. I absolutely love the combination. The BDC reticle allows me to shoot out the 500 yards with precision!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing I used to use strictly Nikon optics for the longest time. The company I work for hosts a product training week where we are introduced to products, companies and vendors. Vortex was there. I was blown away by the quality of their riflescopes and binos. Upon shooting a series of diamondback, viper, and the ever impressive Razor gen II, I purchased a viper for my hunting rifle at home. For the last 3 years it's been the best scope I've everequipped on a rifle. 5 stars no doubt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made optic I have this scope mounted on my .338 Win Mag bolt action that I use for moose and caribou in Alaska. It is tough! It stands up to long, bouncy ATV and snow machine rides and to the heavy recoil of the .338. The optics are very clear and have not had any issues even at -20 F. The adjustments remain easy to turn at -20 unlike others which have seized up below 0 F. Windage and elevation turret caps are easy to adjust in gloves due to the aggressively knurled caps. Great scope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! Not much more needs to be said! This is hands down the best optic for the price. I've used it from Wisconsin to Montana without an issues, but knowing that Vortex will stand behind it's product gives me comfort trekking through the woods and up the sides of mountains! I have and would recommend this scope (and any Vortex Optic for that matter) to anyone! I've even converted my father and uncle (Leopold loyal) to Vortex! Keep up the good work and get your hands dirty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect hunting scope Perfect power range for hunting from stand in thick woods or shooting long shots out in a field. BDC tracks out to 400 yards with 168 grn .308. Love the tooless turret adustment. When you are done zeroing just simply lift the turret and turn back to zero and let it back down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent clarity and value I originally mounted this on my AR but presently it's mounted on my Savage 300 win mag. I got it done at 237 yards on this beautiful moose this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome scope for the money I put this on a Savage in .260 Rem. I am extremely pleased with it so far. I will be buying Vortex again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart!! Simple!!! Sweet!!! I deer hunt in south central Wisconsin and had Vortex put this scope on my Rem. 7mm mag. at their office in Middleton, WI. Staff here was friendly, helpful, and courteous. This scope is crystal clear and my old Remington has been revitalized at the fountain of youth in Middleton. They bore sighted it at the shop and it didn't take much to dial it in when I got home. If you are in law enforcement, you really need to stop in and say hello--they will take very good care of your needs. Warranty is first class--same as their products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm sold !! I now have two of these scopes, I love the clarity and I do not think that you will find a better hunting/ shooting scope for the price. Very easy to use reticle , great eye relief, easy to view magnification setting on the zoom dial , works great in all lighting conditions ( I used one for a mule deer hunt in the mountains of Colorado, and the other in deer hunting in Wisconsin) . Another great Vortex product. Also knowing that if I ever would need it, scopes are backed by the best warranty/ customer service in the business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed with this scope! I bought this gun to put on my Remington 700 30-06. I compared this to other optics in person and I really preferred it for couple of reasons. 1) Glass clarity 2) 44 mm objective was a compromise between the 40 and 500 mm for better light transmission without being too big. 3) Quality of construction 4) Not too high power that I would struggle with close up shots 5) Vortex VIP warranty 5) Excellent price I would buy this scope all over again for other rifles as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good scope I bought this to use on my Schultz & Larsen Hunter rifle, used it from 100 mtr. 200 mtr. 300 mtr. 400 mtr. Could not see the 500 mtr. Too small a target, so i`m going to upgrade from this to a long range scope. Very clear glass, one of the best glass. If you compare the quality of a leupold and vortex the vortex scopes are better and cheaper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Right I got this scope to go on a DPMS G2, and was looking for something with a good field of view at lower magnification, but also the ability to go out to longer ranges for hunting. The Viper HS turned out to be exactly what I wanted. It has been rugged, with over 1000 round fired and no adjustment needed other than for distance. The eye relief is pretty generous for use on an AR, and the glass is clear and bright in lower light situations. I also like the V-plex for hunting, as it is easy to see and uncluttered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again. I purchased this scope for my Browning X-bolt Long Range rifle in 300WSM for a Colorado elk hunt. During sight in and load development I discovered that this Vortex scope is clearer, crisper, and brighter than my high quality top of the line brand name binoculars. This scope performed flawlessly during the elk hunt allowing me to take a good bull at 150yds. Afterward, my son used the rifle to take his bull at 360yds. The Dead Hold BDC feature worked perfectly. IMO Vortex riflescopes are an excellent value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for AR I threw one of these on a SPR build I did for hunting. Love the large magnification range, on 2.5x it can be used up close and with 10x it gives great range. Glass is great too, no problems using it hunting from dawn to dusk!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for all types of hunting! Me and my dad both have these scopes on our 300 win mag rifles and we absolutely love them. They are perfect for long and for short range shots. We both just used them on our bear hunt in Canada and each shot a bear. My dad shot his at 20 yards and I shot mine at 50. Short range they were perfect next they will go on our elk hunt in Montana next fall and we will see how they do at long range. I would recommend this scope to anyone and would buy another in a second if I get a new rifle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope This scope is a great al around scope, I put it on a Browning Mod. 81 308 and could not be happier! I have many scopes, and this has to be one of the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Clarity! I purchased this scope for my deer rifle and couldn't be happier. The warranty is such an excellent additive as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazed!!!!!!!! I use this scope on my hunting rifle. I am totally amazed by the amount of light it lets in at dusk. I used it on a Black bear hunt in northern Alberta last fall and was able to harvest a great chocolate colored bear at dusk. I could hardly see with my naked eye but through the scope everything was bright and clear. I looked thru my friends high dollar scope and was not impressed. I am a believer in Vortex products and would recommend them to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would certainly buy another Vortex Viper Scope I've been using my Viper HS 2.5-10x44 for 3 years now. It on my main hunting rifle. A 308 Marlin X7. Eye Relief is good. The scope is bright and clear. Its tough. I find the eye box in an instant when I shoulder the rifle. I like the Hunter/Target type knobs. I have the scope dope stuck to the stock out to 600 yards. I've hit steel out to 600 and taken deer out to 275. I haven't had the scope fog up on my yet. I really like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't get much better I bought this for a custom AR 10 I built for deer hunting max range of 500 yards for up her in New England, couldn't be happier, went to the range to zero for 100 yards, and shooting 3" metal plate at 200, let my friend try it and he wants to build an AR 10 just to put this scope on it. I never give 5 stars for anything but almost did for this. Only bad thing about is I lost my excuse as to why I missed that deer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for ARs This scope is a perfect mating to my 18" AR rifle build along with a LaRue Tactical SPR-1.5 (LT104) mount. The Viper allows for quick transitions between targets with an uncluttered recital while providing enough information within the sight to settle down and make a confident, longer range shot. I am extremely pleased with this optic; simple, effective, durable and looks great on my rifle. Couldn't ask for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Quality! I actually bought the Viper HS for my stepson's shotgun for when he's chasing turkey, and after seeing it in person I quickly ordered another one so I could get my muzzleloader all set up with the same scope. Honestly I couldn't be any happier with my Viper HS. Great optic for the price, and with me having younger hunters in my family who will be hunting with them, a warranty I feel grateful to have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear glass and very bright Bought this scope to pair with my Savage 308. Leupold was always my go to scope, but after many good reviews I had to try a Vortex. Overall, I'm glad I did. Very clear glass and bright to make hunting in low light conditions a little easier on the eyes. I will say that I feel it added a little extra weight to the rifle, but that also could be because it's the first 30mm tube I've owned and used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Optics I purchased this scope from a recommendation from a friend. I installed the scope on my 7mm Mag. This is BY FAR the best scope I have ever had. the clarity, is matched by no one. Also the durability is outstanding. As I hike in the mountains and brush it does get knocked around, but this scope remains true and accurate. Vortex has a customer for life. I will now ONLY purchase vortex products

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal Clear This build was focused on a versatile deer rifle for both open country and wooded close quarters. This is where the 2-5-10x magnification provides a wide FOV for both short and medium range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality you wish other manufacturers had I mounted this on my AR10. The overall features are what really bring value to this scope. The fit / finish, fiber optic index for the zoom adjustment, all assure you that you've made an excellent choice. The turret are excellent quality and the adjustment clicks are definitive without much tolerance play.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad eye relief Bought the scope a few months ago and have issues with the eye relief. There is a noticeable difference between magnifications. I understand that this can be common, but it is a large variance and I don't feel that a quality product should have this high of a variance. Magnification dial is also very hard to adjust. Have some diamondback binoculars that work fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value Bought the 2.5-10 to replace a Leupold European 3-9 withg German #4 ret on my son's .308 hunting rifle. This is a great value...we prefer capped turrets for hunting and the BDC feature is a cool offering even though we haven't had a chance to go long range with it yet....liked it so much that I got the 4-16 version with BDC for myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome scope! Ive owned this scope for a few months now and have absolutely loved it! Ive been able to shoot sub 1 MOA groups with my stock Ruger ar556 mpr with this scope on top of it. I have been nothing but impressed when using it at the range or when coyote hunting. I will definitely be using more vortex products in the future.
