Howzit guys,

This is my 1st post. I was wondering if anybody out there has come accross these Vorex scopes? The price,specs,looks and warranty really do impress. Anyone out there tried it out before? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated...

I'm shooting: 30-06 BRNO with ZEISS Conquest 3.5-10x44
              22lr BRNO with TASCO 4 X 44
          Air Arms S410 Extra FAC: Nighteater 4-16x50 (20-24fps)
          Bam 50 : ZOS 10-40 X 50 (25-28fps)

Thx a Lot Cheaptrick! Well...the one he was using isn't the one I'm interested in...The 3-9X44 lets in more light and also has bigger Magnification...You ever tried them?

Regards

Yeah, I saw that the one in the review wasn't the same as the one your interested in, but thats all I found. 
A forum search might reveal more info on the 3-9x?
 
No Sir, I've never seen a Vortex scope.

Vortex makes a good scope.  The Diamond back is very comparable to a bushnell 3200, the viper is comparable to a Bushnell 4200

I got my kid a Diamondback 4-12X40 to put on his 22-250 coyote rig.  Its ok...... nothing great but not bad for the money.  He seems to like it better than I do, which is just fine with me.

Thanks for the input guys :)...I'm guessing it wont be as clear as my Zeiss then...but, how do you think it would compare to the Nikko Sterling Nighteater 4-16 X50 ? Its round the same price range over here...
