    G'day, I have the Vortex Viper PST 4-16x50mm FFP Tactical Rifle Scope
    They have a nice feel to them but I felt the clarity on high magnification is average.
    (then again I am comparing it to Nightforce and March scopes)

    I am not sure which model I have (6.5-20x42/4?) but it has lift up to zero turrets.... I just don't have confidence in turrets that are to easy to zero as in the field in less than perfect conditions zero could be lost and that is a real drama

    Some of the models have allen key adjust zero's and I would prefer those, Apart from the zero its seams OK for the money but I haven't even used mine and I have just about sold it....money isn't in hand yet but it will be soon
