    Seems to be some sack riding going on right now with the new Razor but I need something to put on a .243 for my kids hunting rifle.

    I have always been a Nikon and Leupold fan but the warranty on these have me double thinking.

    Looking in the $200 range at the 3x9 Diamondback.

    Does anyone have a Vortex scope? How is the glass compared to the $200 Nikon and Leupold?

    i've messed around with the viper series a little bit. just in the store, but i'd compare it to more of the monarch series nikon scopes. haven't heard anything about the lower end ones though.

    Never dealt with one, but have been curious myself.

    You could snag a Leupy 6x42 for that price though, which would make it a hard sell for me....

    for 200 bucks I'd pick up a nikon though.
