Aside from obvious magnification differences, how do these compare as far as brightness, ruggedness, clarity etc..?  If both were set at 3x would the Bushnell be much brighter?
 
Thanks,
Mike

both are tough as nails, i own both scopes in question,  as far as brightness goes lets do the math..
3 into 32,call it 11mm for ease of math 3 into 40 is 13mm both exceed the amount of 5-7mm so you wont really notice much difference until you crank the power up.

I own both of those as well, and for ruggedness, brightness, and clarity, they both perform in spades.

At the current price the viper is a far better value.  Pretty close to same same as far as quality.

I've owned both.  I still have the Viper.

Eye relief, size, & weight were the deciding factors for me.
