Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I bought this model 3 years ago for a sheep hunt. I really enjoyed it, my eyes never go sore and at 45 power was able to see a great ways with great clarity. I was originally worried I was under powered getting this one over the 20-60 but my buddies was picking up alot of ripples from the heat waves when over, 50 power. I've been using this for 3 years have gotten myself into several elk and killed several elk with it. Great glass, great price, great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New and mostly improved. I recently received the newest Viper scope as a warranty replacement for an older model I purchased five years ago. Assembly out of the box was very easy; even the neoprene cover slid on easily. I immediately put the scope to use on a week-long biding excursion. The eye piece fits and locks as a t-mount rather than the more cumbersome threaded style. I immediately noticed that the zoom ring is much wider and easier locate and adjust while viewing. The zoom motion is very fluid. The focus ring now wraps around the circumference of the lens barrel which makes it fast and easy to adjust. However I personally miss the the fine focus adjustment that my older model had. Although the specs indicate that the field of view of both models are about the same, my impression is that the new model is brighter and wider; excellent for scanning. The increased eye relief (already good) is also a welcome improvement. Images are clear and colors true. I'm not sure that the new Viper is quite as crisp at full magnification, but I can't be sure without a side-by-side comparison. Overall, the new Viper V500 spotting scope is very good in the field and an excellent value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Spotter! I have only used a few spotting scopes in this price range so don't have a ton to compare to, but I love this spotting scope. Clear, easy to use, angled version still fits in my Kifaru Reckoning/22mag packs side pocket with plenty of room to spare, comes with padded cover and lens caps... so much to love and still affordable!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope I considered this purchase for years before pulling the trigger. I am happy with the scope as it has great clarity and easy adjustments. My only complaint is that I wish it were a bit lighter, but at this price point it is tough to beat and all things considered I think it's the best value for what I am doing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome spotter for the right price! I bought this a couple weeks ago, and have just played around with it thus far, but it is already so easy to see the improvements from the older viper spotting scopes! I would compare this to equal the pre-2018 Razor spotting scopes! Definitely worth the money, and I would highly recommended it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spotter for my pic My buddy and I went to his upstate house to sight in his new 30-06. He whipped this spotting scope out (angle one) he shot I spotted, The clarity of this thing was amazing and I loved the angled eye piece so comfortable compared to straight spotter scopes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Real Workhorse I've had this spotting scope for several years and it has never failed me. Whether I'm at the range or hunting pronghorns its brightness and coarse and fine focus suits me just fine. It's worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very durable I bought this a while back and am very happy with the performance. I have dropped this several times but it still holds up.
