With all the Vortex PST 6-24x50 FFP EBR1 MRAD for sale in North Texas??? Did a truck tip over somewhere or is there just a bunch of junk Vortex Scopes hitting the market? There have been 3 for sale on here in less than a week.

Some are because people are upgrading or they decided the long range wasn't for them.

Ive got 2. For the money they're quality scopes, clear glass. Cant hardly beat them. I mean if you want to spend 2k on a nightforce, zeiss, ect that's fine. But id put a Vortex Viper PST up against any of them. Your seeing them posted because they're easy to sell. I bought a Vortex Viper PST 6x24FFP EBR1 MRAD and a 4x16 on this site in the last 3 weeks. Saved over 250$ per scope compared to buying them new from a dealer. They have a lifetime transferable warranty. If you break one in any way, drop it, runover it, ect theyll fix it free.

It's a scope that'll get you started, but the deeper you get the better scope you want How many times have yall seen a desire of getting into distance and a budget of $800-$1000? I've had three PMs this week with the same wording. No better option in that budget. Increase it to $1200 and I'll point you to an SS 5-20 HD, its a better scope, and you see none for sale on this site.

I hear you on that. I'm about to get into it, Andy budget is $500 to get started. Who knows maybe I'll hit a scratch off this week and be able to buy one of these in the classifieds. Right now I'm hoping a swfa fixed power shows up for sale in the next 2 weeks, but those don't seem to come up either.

Swfa had a bunch of fixed power demos and used in the sample list yesterday might be worth a look.
