I know there are a plethora of options out there for LPVO's, but specifically I am looking at a Vortex Optics line Viper PST Gen II 1-6X24mm, and the Leupold "Firedot" series. I like the idea of the illuminated reticle, and 1-6X seems to fit the bill for my intended use, which is hunting, range, and just all around general "truck gun" duty. I also really like the idea of a true 1X for use as a pseudo red dot in close engagement situations, and for the ability to shoot with both eyes open. I've also considered stepping up and going with the Vortex Razor HD Gen II 1-6X24, with the JM-1 BDC reticle. However, I am not sure it would serve its intended use any better, and the actual optic cost is doubled. So, my budget is set at $1K'ish for the optic, and mount, but do any of you have any other recommendations in the $1,000 range? Or, any advice on the Razor vs Viper PST? Thank you in advance, I appreciate it!
