    Need something solid that I don't need to worry about getting knocked around a bit in a class but I don't need to have something I can throw off a bridge, pound nails and then depend my life on it. If I end up going to a lot of classes and getting skilled up I might go for something beefier down the road.
    If its to be a starter LPV then Id say just find one with a reticle you like. The Vortex Strike Eagle I have and the PA 1-6 were clearly made in the same factory. And neither are daytime bright but the reticle allows for daytime use without illumination.

    If your budget is $1k, I'd look for a good used Vortex Razor 1-6. It won't be the newer, lighter model but will be a top notch, quality optic that will serve you well without issue.

    This.

    I have the Steiner on one of my rifles and it is a good optic, but it is outclassed by the Razor. Spend a little extra and get the Gen II E to save some weight and you'll be even happier. The Gen II E gets you like 90% of the way to the Kahles K16i which is my favorite option, but at 65% of the price.

    Interesting to see the manual brightness knob rather than the standard push button adjustment built into the battery cap. I knew capped turrets was an option (come standard on the regular VX-R I believe) but had no idea a knob was possible for brightness adjustment.

    Leupold needs to make a version of this a standard catalog item. Ditch the bright gold ring around the objective end and it would be about perfect.

    Leupold should make it standard item to reduce the price. $1,000 for a $500 scope because it has thunder ranch markings ? No thanks.

    The VX-R is a decent scope but for the same money ($500 ish) the Steiner Px4i is the way to go for a 1-4x.

    Leupold supposedly has a revamp of the VX-R in the works. I think the next gen will be 1.5-5. Don't know what else is in the works.

    The 1.25x was very useable.

    I had a VX6 1-6 firedot duplex and it seemed like the 1x was actually negative magnification like .75x.

    FWIW, I am pretty happy with my Vortex Viper PST Gen II 1-6, if you want to stay far below the $1k price limit. I paid just under $500 new for mine.

    If you don't mind spending a little more though yeah I'd get the razor.

    I have a Vortex Viper PST Gen 1 1-4 that is serving me well. If any are still available new, they should be a great price point.
