I have one, and I kind of hate it. It's bulky. Also, the principal of the thing. bugs me.
Disregard, carry on
so now I'm looking at a viper hs 4-16x and the athlon argos scopes. there is a 2-12 and a 4-20x. and I suppose another burris e1 could be in the running. I guess.
Anything labelled Viper has better glass than Diamondbacks. Depending on physical features and generational differences, the difference may be pretty small, though.
The Diamondback Tactical is the 4-16 FFP, and at $350 street price I think it's an amazing value. It has a graduated "Christmas tree" style reticle in either MOA or Mils that makes holds for distance and wind a no-brainer. It may suffer a little at lower light levels, but I haven't seen it yet.
That said, if you're limited to 200yds or less and have no aspirations of shooting farther, it's probably unnecessary complication.
I personally have no experience with the Athlon, but generally hear good things.
I've got a redesigned 4-16, a 3-12, and an older 2-10x. But they are all already on guns. I need a new scope for a new gun.
Ok, got it.
