Vortex Viper Red Dot Features

The Viper Red Dot’s super-low mounting height makes it the perfect solution for handguns with cutout slides. The Viper gives shooters the simplicity and speed advantage of a dot sight, while co-witnessing with suppressor height iron sights. The trade off? Nothing. The 6 MOA dot diameter gets shooters on target fast.

The Vortex Viper Red Dot has a fully multi-coated, ultra-clear lens that offers a wide, unobstructed field of view. Multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces increase light transmission. The left side up/down power and illumination controls are easy to access and manipulate. Recessed 1 MOA windage and elevtion adjustments are super clean, protected from incidental contact, and always at the ready. It runs on a CR 2032 battery. The Viper comes with a Picatinny mount—weighs 2.1 ounces with mount.

Windage and Elevation Adjustment

Note: The windage and elevations adjustments are protected by two lock screws. Both must be loosened with the small screwdriver before either can be adjusted.

To adjust the elevation and windage settings:
1. Loosen both Adjustment Lock Screws 1 1/2 turns.

2. Adjust dials up or down or left or right as indicated by arrows.

3. Re-tighten both lock screws after making adjustments.


Mounting the Vortex Viper Red Dot

The Viper red dot is shipped from the factory with a low rail mount that clamps to both a Weaver or Picatinny rail.

Note: If your rearm is not already equipped with a base rail, it may be purchased from many rearms dealers.

1. Attach the low rail mount to the Viper using the included screws.

2. Attach the Viper to the Picatinny base rail, making sure the recoil lug is solidly seated in the base groove.

3. Check to see that the clamp is fully down and hooked around the outside of the base.

4. Press the Viper down and forward toward the muzzle and, using the supplied hex wrench,

firmly tighten down the clamp screw.


Mounting Options

In addition to the supplied low rail mount, an optional riser mount places the Viper red dot at correct height for AR-15 rifles.


Sighting In

After mounting, an initial sight-in of the Viper red dot at 25 yards will be helpful. Final sight-in should be done at the desired distance (typically 25-50 yards).

1. Be sure the windage and elevation lock screws are tight before firing. Fire a three-shot group as precisely as possible at 25 yards.

Loosen the Windage and Elevation Adjustment Lock Screws before adjusting.

• Using the center of the three-shot group as a reference, make the necessary adjustments for windage and elevation correction. Using arrows for reference, adjust dials in the direction you wish the group to move. At 25 yards, each dial mark will yield about 1⁄4 inch of adjustment.

• Re-tighten the lock screws.

2. Fire a three-shot group at nal preferred sight-in distance (25-50 yards).

Loosen windage and elevation lock screws before adjusting.

• Using the center of the three-shot group as a reference, make necessary adjustments for windage and elevation correction. Using arrows for reference, adjust dials in the direction you wish the group to move. At 50 yards, each dial mark will yield about 1⁄2 inch of adjustment.

• After achieving satisfactory zero, re-tighten lock screws.

3.Fire a final three-shot group to con rm proper adjustment. Repeat as necessary.

• Loosen the Windage and Elevation Adjustment Lock Screws before adjusting.

• Using the center of the three-shot group as a reference, make the necessary adjustments for windage and elevation correction. Using arrows for reference, adjust dials in the direction you wish the group to move. At 25 yards, each dial mark will yield about 1⁄4 inch of adjustment.

• Re-tighten the lock screws.

• Confirm that all mounting screws and lock screws are snug and tight.


Vortex Viper Red Dot Maintenance

Cleaning

The Viper red dot will require very little routine maintenance other than periodically cleaning the exterior lenses. If desired, the exterior lens may be cleaned by wiping with a soft, dry cloth.

When cleaning the lenses, be sure to use products that are speci cally designed for use on coated optical lenses such as our Lens Pen and FogFree Cleaning Kits.

• Be sure to blow away any dust or grit on the lens prior to wiping the surface.

• Using your breath, or a very small amount of water or pure alcohol, can help remove stubborn things like dried water spots.


Troubleshooting

If the red dot does not illuminate, please check the following before returning the red dot for service:

• Is the battery oriented correctly? Be sure the battery is installed with the + side facing upwards.

•Is the battery dead? If so, replace the battery.
