Vortex Viper PST Rifle Scope
Great piece of glass!
I put the 1x4 on a 5.56 AR. This rifle is set up for close- medium range, and originally had a red-dot sight on it. This scope is virtually as fast as a red dot at 1x, while adding the capability to range out as well. The glass and hardware on it rival the quality of an optic in the $1000+ price range. This is simply one awesome product, and Vortex got it right!

Incredible scope, super clear glass
Purchasing this scope was a well researched decision. I looked around quite a bit at Leopold, Zeiss, Millet, Sightron....even dabbled at Nightforce when I realized that this Vortex had incredible features with glass as clear as the Leopold Mark IV; but, with features that belonged in the Nightforce price range. I did get the MRAD version after reading much up on it. It's very intuitive. Holds zero shot after shot after shot.
I shoot 3/4 MOA groups on my Remington 700 SPS varmint in 308 resting on a factory stock, and do so partially in thanks to this clear glass.
Plus when it comes down to it, this scope will last a lifetime...seriously, that's what the warranty guarantees and no other company can even come close in the optics industry to touching this. So I would NOT hesitate to buy this scope again or recommend it to anyone.
One piece of advice I can offer though if you wish to shoot 1000+ yards all the time, your going to want to get the Razor HD which has a TON of elevation adjustment. This scope is fine for shooting anything 50-1000yd IMO.

Great scope and a great company!!
Back in September I ordered a 6-24x50 PST ERB-1 MRAD; the EBR-2C was backordered. The service was great and shipping was fast. I am pleased with all aspects of the scope. The mechanical zero was so close that I zeroed in 3 shots and only required .3 mils of elevation and .2 mils of windage. The pictured group was fired on my second range day while it was pouring rain and a light breeze at 100 yards. The scope was cryastal clear in thses condition, even at 24x. It is mounted on my PWS Mk216 7.62 with a Vortex 30mm cantilever mount, shooting 168 gr HPBT Remington Match ammo. This is a great product and company.

Great optics you only buy once.
I've had this car for almost a year now. I've used it in the field extensively. The glass is very superb early morning and late evening. And with the feature of illuminated crosshair. It is a perfect pair with the crisp clean glass early morning and late evening hunting. Especially when I switched it over to my varmint rifle. It was phenomenal. Since I have purchased this scope I have purchased 5 other vortex optics. To replace my Burris and my Leupold. Thanks for such good value for the money.
