Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough as nails, smash-proof I've owned this scope for 4 seasons now and do most of my shooting from 100-300 yards. I've always been impressed with the clarity and brightness of this scope. In 2021, I had an accident and my rifle tumbled down a cliff and the butt stock snapped in half. I glued and taped the stock back together. To my amazement, the scope did not lose its zero after testing it at 100yds. Five days later I harvested my first bull elk with my glued together rifle. My only negative with the product is the lens did fog/ice up a bit during an elk hunt when the temperature was about 5F. But that may be expected when it is that cold out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Build I purchased this optic for a upcoming hunting trip. I want an optic that is Solid and can take a beating. That led me to Vortex. Build quality is top notch and backed by the VIP no questions asked warranty which says a lot. That tells me that Vortex is %100 confident in the build and ruggedness of this or any optic they put out. Glass quality is clear and gathers light well in the early and later hours of the day. Turrets are easily adjusted and have a solid click to keep you aware of your adjustments. Body is solid and matte finish does a great job of absorbing reflective output.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More then expected When I picked up the scope I was looking for a good mid range scope. After a trip to Alaska to hunt caribou at long range with my son I found I had as good a scope as you can get. It rained almost none stop for the 7 days we hunted with an avg. temp of 40 degrees F. Not one problem and was dead on when I got my shot. My son was using another brand scope that cost 5 times what I paid. Yes, he paid over $1500 for his scope just to have it fog up when we got above the 9000 ft level. He ended up mounting my viper and finishing his hunt. When we got back to Utah he went out and bought his own Viper and I just as pleased with it as I am.
