    Vortex Spitfire 3x or Vortex Viper 1-4?

    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.

    Ammo, camo and things that go "blammo".

    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.

    I can't recommend the viper enough. Great piece of glass. Only downside to your plan is the top of your Tavor is about to get heavy.

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