Vortex Diamondback HP (High Performance) is the newer series of the very successful predecessor series, Diamondback. These new rifle scopes feature many improvements, like the side parallax turret on all models, which is adjustable from 20 or 30 yards to infinity, depending on the model. Vortex improved also the glass quality, because all Diamondback HP rifle scopes feature new premium glass elements which improve the image quality and reduces chromatic aberrations. This glass is now fully multi-coated with a better anti-reflective coating, to improve all those properties. The reticle is placed in the second focal plane, so it has the same dimensions at all magnifications. The reticle is non-illuminated.
Like the predecessors, also these rifle scopes are made form a one-piece aircraft-grade aluminum, which is filled with argon to prevent internal fogging on cold days. The entire housing is hard anodized for a more scratch-resistant surface, and the clamping diameter is 1-inch, so many mounting solutions are available for any weapon platform. The turrets are capped for protection against accidental movement, and the warranty on these products is 10 years.
The Vortex Diamondback HP rifle scopes can only be mounted with 1-inch rings.
