I could sell you my beat up Vortex Viper for under $400. Time to clear out a bit of stuff anyway. Works fine.

There is also a 2nd hand weaver super slam 3-15 on sale at tardme.

A similar option.

Bought a vx3 and was horribly dissapointed with it. Sold it to someone on the forum at  $500 loss. Happy to see the back of it.

Also had a cheaper new VX1.  Gave it away. Was also a disapointment.

How do they survive with their lifetime garrantee?
