    MTC Viper connect.

    Hi guys,

    What is this scope like for the use on a sub 12 air rifle for short range vermin and for using night vision like the Note site etc on. I have seen one in the flesh and it looked and felt good, however i haven't tried it in the field for real life use.


    Can anyone comment on the above scope please?

    Many thanks in advance.


    Steve.

    It does not appear to damage the scope itself but may damage the twisting eye relief cup. As long as you turn the eye relief cup in so that it won't be holding the weight of the camera on it etc on it it should be fine???

    Cool

    I don't know what these scopes are like with Night vision but as a day scope they are superb. I have two and my only gripe is that they don't also make a higher magnification version........if they did I'd not buy anything else.

    Bought one of these a few weeks ago and had a chance to use it in competition last weekend at the Rochford open.

    First off either you like the 'connect' part of using the scope or you don't; you put your eye right upto the eyecup much like using a monocular so there is virtually zero eye relief.
    Personally I love it even with glasses as you get repeatability on head position which is important when you can't adjust parallax, but also with the connect is that wide, panoramic, sky to floor, wonderful view.

    The view with the connect is like you've been looking through all your other scopes as if they're pinhole cameras, it's a relevation it really is that good and allows you to keep a good eye out on what the surrounding wind is up to.

    The reticle, mine has the SCB2 and it's pretty much perfect for me. I like fine reticles and the SCB is pretty fine but still more than visible even against dark targets in shade. Intersections are intelligent, I just wish I'd had time to range/shoot my 15-25yd mini kills before the comp as I was way off from what chairgun was telling me.

    The mounting is interesting as the double saddle means you either double mount the front tube or buy the dedicated reach back mount. Go for the reach back mount as it's worth it.

    The only negative I would say is that the clarity at the edge of the view is not as sharp as the centre view, but then this is probably due to how the optical system is set up in order to give you that wonderful view.

    For 250 it's extremely good value but I would say go look through one before you buy as it is a marmite scope.

    Didn't know you married someone called Dave.

    That wasn't in the magazines.

    Ive got one, good scopes for short to medium range. Apart from what others have said regard nite vision, i would say a big no no, as with the short eye relief your head would be a long way back, so would be very uncomfortable!!!!

    I've been using a NE500 on my Connect for 18 months now, no problems at all, BUT, I've chucked the rubber tube and use an ali tube.
    I don't use the rubber tube on any of the three scopes I use for NV as I think it's an awful bit of tat, fitted it once to back of my Taipan, thought I was going to snap the back off the scope when removing it.
