OutdoorHub Reporters 12.18.19
Even though they are a more recent player in the scopes and optics industry, Vortex has already created a name for themselves as a manufacturer of high quality scopes offered at fair prices, making their products an overall solid value. The Vortex Viper HS 4-16×44 scope is no exception. This scope is designed to be used for both target shooting and big game hunting at a variety of different ranges. It comes with XR multi coated lenses, which will capture the maximum amount of light possible from dusk until dawn. The 4x zoom range is more than sufficient for ensuring that you can zoom in close enough on your target.
The 30mm main tube is fully windage and elevation adjustable, and the capped quick reset turrets allow you to quickly re-zero after initially sighting in. The Armortek coating over the lenses is very scratch resistant, and the argon purging in the inside of the scope ensures that it is a fully waterproof and fogproof scope.
The outside of the scope has a hard anodized finish to ensure that it is fully rust and corrosion resistant as well, so you can take this scope out when it’s pouring rain out.
