You guys have advised me to buy the Vortex Viper, for that I thank you all. I've been reading reviews and every one likes them.
My question; The three Viper 2-7x32's, listed on SWFA's site here  http://swfa.com/Vortex-Viper-Rifle-Scopes-C1410.aspx  are all at the same price, yet the first one is 50% off, while the other 2 are listed at 35% off. Vortex's site lists them at the same MSRP. Why? Typo, mistake, or something I'm not seeing?

MSRP may not reflect the actual price they were going for before the closeout.

http://swfa.com/Vortex-2-7x32-Viper-Rifle-Scope-P11226.aspx   would have been 339.90 still below MSRP


Supply, demand, vendor cost and such set the market price for scopes.

I would say with the BDC craze it fetched a premium price at the time.

Also be aware that none of them are actually adjustable objective.

Thanks for the explanation 308Sav.

Neibilly, thanks for your post also. I always wondered what those numbers around the objective end of the scope were for. I know now because I had to search the term "adjustable objective".
Do I really need it for my shooting?
Would you care to recommend a decent scope under $250?

The Viper with BDC is a very good scope. For the money it would be hard to beat it. In the under 250 ballpark I would look at these.

http://swfa.com/Vortex-2-7x32-Viper-Rifle-Scope-P11226.aspx  I have 2 of them and they are a nice scope.


http://swfa.com/Nikon-3-9x40-Monarch-UCC-Riflescope-P45664.aspx Very good deal right now.


Either one comes in under your budget and would be good choices. 


Keep us posted. Thunbs Up

The Viper 2-7x32 was the one I was going with.

Just off hand I dont recall any other 2-7 scopes that have ever been adjustable objective, do you recall any?
