Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my fourth Vortex Scope. Just bought my fourth Vortex rifle scope - a Copperhead 4-12 x 44 (CPH-412). On sale - $20 off list. What a bargain! (12x = old eyes). I already own a Strikefire II, a Viper, and a Crossfire II. I just put this one on my new CZ Model 452, (Left-hand bolt-action) .22LR. After 10 rounds to get it on the bull, at 50 yards, it did this for me. 5-shot groups with Aguila SuperExtra 40 gr. copper round nose: 0.44", 0.66", 0.68", 0.70", 0.72", 0.72". That concludes today's demonstration. When your eyes are old . . . "Vortex is the best - forget the rest".

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Scope Excellent Customer Service!! I bought this Scope and put it on my 44 Mag. Yes it is a bit over kill for that gun but the price was outstanding and I had not tried a Vortex Product yet. It was GREAT and then I started to have problems with it in low light conditions. I called Vortex and told them the problem and asked what I could do. Because I was still in the middle of my deer season they sent me a new one that day!! It was on the front porch the next day and I had it mounted and ready for the weekend of Hunting!! Best Customer service period that I have ever had!! I just purchased a Crossfire 2 for my 300 Win Mag 6-18 AO. I am 100% a Vortex customer now period. Thank You Vortex for your commitment to your Customers!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good I have 3 I wanted a scope that had more distance and more light. I originally got one for my Remington 700 in 30-06. I used it all hunting season the clarity of the scope for the price is amazing. I wound up getting 2 more for my Mossberg MVP and Remington R15. For the price of the scope to be in the wheelhouse with other brands 500 scopes it's a deal and to add the warranty behind it is just adding ice cream to cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm impressed I have been looking for a scope sub $500 for my AR for awhile. I've tried a couple other brands but the light and quality just stinks. I was having trouble seeing the holes in the target at 50 yards. Then along comes JoeBob's with an amazing deal on a Vortex. I bought this little beauty and I'm pleased. I'm honestly shocked at how good the light is. The pictures below do not do it justice. Vortex is worth it. One of these days I'll pony up for the big boys... if I can find a way to hide the money from my wife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great low price scope I was on vacation in the US recently and as I was looking for a scope for my Sako Quad .22LR, I stopped into Mountaineer guns in White Sulphur Springs (WV) for a look. I saw the Vortex Copperhead at $110 and had a look, I was impressed with the clarity and brightness immediately; In fact I was so impressed with it when I stopped in at Bud's gunstore in Lexington (KY) I also bought a Vortex Crossfire2 4-16x50 AO for my .17HMR rifle! I almost always go for Bushnell and Sightron scopes, but now I'm converted and I'll have to seriously consider replacing my Elite and S111 with equivalent Vortex!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent scope I bought this scope to put on a .17HMR for shooting squirrels. It’s a decent scope but it isn’t the clearest scope out there. I suppose you get what you pay for and it’s on the lower end of vortex. When you crank the magnification it gets kind of fuzzy. Back the magnification back to 8-9 (I think...I haven’t shot it for a few months) and it clears right up. Serves it's purpose for what I use it for. Helped me knock out 100+ grey diggers last summer so it works. I wouldn’t use it for any long distance shooting due to the high magnification fuzziness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Scope I'm new to vortex scopes. I purchased the Vortex CopperHead 4-12x44 for my Remington 783 and am so pleased with the quality, clarity and durability of this amazing scope. With vortex VIP warranty and very reasonable pricing you just can't go wrong with this scope.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value scope I put this scope on a .30-06 and have been pretty impressed! The first thing that I like is the BDC reticle and using the LRBC tool. We shot 4 animals with the gun this scope was setup on and had confidence in each shot due to knowing where to aim. The next feature that I like about this scope is the forgiving eye relief. This is definitely not a Viper or Razor, but for the money is a great scope.
