A week or so ago, both reticle versions of the Vortex Viper 3-9x40 were $299.99 from the usual $399.00.  I looked on Vortex's website this afternoon, and see the Dead-Hold BDC is now discontinued, and I can only imagine the V-Plex is soon to follow.  What will the replacements be?

I'm surprised that they're discontinuing it, but not surprised at the price reduction. There are a few very good 3-9x scopes below that $399 price point to compete with. At $400, it was trying to run with the 3-9x Conquest, which is tough competition.
At $300 it's at a more competitive price point,priced along with the Monarch UCC 3-9x 40mm,Weaver Grand Slams and the Elite 4200 3-9x 40mm that are its competitors,and beating out most of the regular Monarch series for the price. At that price point, it offers better features (good turrets namely) and glass than its competitors.

Now if they'd just discount them like they did with some of the other viper models.......
$299 was the regular going street price wasn't it?
 
Wondering if the entire Viper line is going away, or just getting an update?

Wow, now I'm not sure what to do here. It looks like the Viper line is going away in favor of the Viper PST line. I'm wondering if I should wait for the new line. I'm wondering if the extra features will be worth the extra price.
