I'm having troubles deciding between the Prism 3x and the Viper 1-4x.
This is going on my Tavor Tar 21. Its been over a month, one week its one, the next week is the other. I need to decide before sleep deprivation sets in.
Prism
Pros: illuminated/etched reticle, not so busy reticle, built specifically for 5.56, easy to sight in, roughly $200 cheaper.
Viper
Pros: illuminated/etched reticle, roughly an inch more eye relief, adjustable zoom, looks real nice on a Tavor

I love Vortex products. I have the strikefire 2 on it right now. The 4 MOA dot is a bit too much for 60+ yards.
Any personal experiences posted would be awesome.

I'm using a Vortex Viper PST on my AR and love it. Great piece of glass.

Honestly I would recomend a 1-4. Theres plenty of times I have found even 3x to be too much. A 1-4 would give you a better range of usage, from real close with the 1x and for the longer stuff 4x would work. I am actually looking at a few 1-4 power options myself.

This...no experience with Vortex stuff, however.

Edit: That is quite a busy reticle on the Viper for a 1-4, I'd have to play with one first.

That's the Burris P.E.P.R. mount. Sold separately from the scope. It's a good fit though.
