Aside from RAINGAURD, which scope do you all like better? These new Vipers look promising. Im not sure on the optics though compared to others. Has anyone tried one of these out yet?

There are some differences depending on how you intend to use the scope.  The Viper scopes tend to have more internal adjustment and the Bushnell scopes while I like their glass I tried to sight in a musket with a 4-16x40  4200 yesterday and did not have enough internal adjustment with only 50 moa half of which would be above center. Today I ordered a 2-7 Viper on sale that has 120 MOA of internal adjustment for that musket.    Make sense?

I think the Viper 2-7x32 priced as it is, belongs in the best bang for your buck catagory.  I have one on my daughter's turkey shotgun.

One more thing to consider, the new HS models are going to be .5 MOA clicks in elevation and .25 MOA in windage. Not too sure if I like that or not.

I guess it  gives them more elevation adjustment. Plus you may be waiting for an HS for awhile. Viper has had issues getting new stuff out when they say they will, but then again, don't they all?

I thought the HS Long Range models were the only ones with 1/2 MOA elevation clicks.  I thought the standard HS elevation knobs were 1/4 MOA.

You are quite correct sir. Seems I put my foot in my mouth. I had only researched the LR models since that was what I was interested in. Sorry bout dat.
