    Hey guys,

    Anyone have any experience with china made Vector optics? Do they track and hold zero well? I was looking into upgrading from my UTG swat to one of these. The reticle seems very nice, very thin compared to the super thick utg mildot reticle. 

    Thanks

    Never seen one in person, but they do seem to offer TOO many features for the price point, seems like something would have to be compromised?
    “The reticle seems very nice, very thin”   you’ve looked through one?  Or found moa reticule measurements online? 

    Let us know how it works out for you.

    I have three and love them.  I got the 10-40×56 FFP and followed that by getting a 8-32×56 FFP and 6-25×56 FFP.  The reticle is very thin. I had to get used to it because it almost blend into the target picture.  They have different reticles, my personal favorite is the MP reticle.

    Glad to hear that. Did you experience any loss of zero when bumping it around? Do they track well? I want to use one on my hunting gun and with the UTG Swat that I have right now I find it loosing zero when bumped around in the car or in the field, also tracking is horrible, I can only use it for holdover shots. The Mtc Viper that I have on the other gun is super solid and has no problems at all but I was looking to find a cheaper option and these Vectors seem nice. I did read a few negative reviews tho so I am still evaluating.

    I haven’t had any issues with them.  In fact, I’ve only zeroed them once.  Like most brands they have their basic entry models and their higher end models.  I have the mid-level models.  I’m not sure how their entry level brands perform.  I decided to test one because of the FFP option. I was really surprised at the picture clarity. They are pretty hefty at a little over 2lbs but that’s not a deal breaker for me.  Another thing to consider is the eye relief is pretty far, 3-5 inches and some PCP rails are too short for both rings to clear the central part of the scope and still fit on the rails.  On my Sumatra I had to get a longer rail adapter for it to fit. If you decide to go with one get it from Omega.  There price beats most companies selling them by almost $100 and their customer service is fine.  The focus wheel on the first 8-32 I got was really tight. Once I contacted them, they immediately made a return authorization and sent the replacement before I mailed in the defective one.

    Wow that is a long eye relief, that will be a problem, I am used to short eye relief scopes. I actually got some extended sportsmatch mounts to shorten the eye relief on the rifle that I plan to use this on. I will have to do some more research, thank you for all your help.

    I 2x checked the eye relief and it’s not quite that extreme.  It’s 3.2″-3.9″ still pretty wide. This is an asset when using PB with a lot of recoil, so the scope don’t bash you in the eye.
