Hey all, just wondering if ALL Vortex Viper scopes are backordered? I was told the FFP ones are, but I'm looking for the Viper 6.5-20x50 PA matte, am I in the clear? Spoke with a local FFL who said there's none to be had...

CS Tactical (http://www.cstactical.com/) has them and gets them regularly. It's a little bit of a drive, but consider going out to the shop and having Mike show you different scopes and give them a peek. Always nice to see the glass in person and Mike is the man!!!

Apples and oranges.

Viper PST is a series of scopes.

FFP is "First Focal Plane". It means that when you zoom the scope it will zoom in on the reticle meaning the mi-dots hold valid at any zoom level.

With a "Second Focal Plane" scope the mil-dots are only valid at one zoom level. Usually max zoom.

^^^ There's your answer and the reality is that a FFP on a 1-4x is not "really" necessary. On a 2.5-10x as a spotter's rifle, yeah...I can see it being much more important for ranging, but then at those matches and exercises I carried either bino's or a moncular with the same reticle as my shooter.
