Vortex Viper PST Gen. 2 are the new generation of the well known Viper PST (Precision Shooting Tactical) rifle scopes. Like their predecessors, these rifle scopes are very feature-rich and come for an affordable price. From the design, the Viper PST Gen. 2 rifle scopes are now very similar to their more expensive Vortex Razor HD Gen. 2 and Razor HD AMG rifle scopes.
All rifle scopes in the Viper PST series are tactical rifle scopes designed for shooting on different distances, and because of that, the turrets are exposed tactical (except on the 1-6x24 model), so the user can change the elevation and windage quickly without taking off the caps. The elevation turret has now also a true zero-stop function, which can be adjusted under the turret, and now no more CRS (customizable rotational stop) shims are needed. The wide-angle model – 1-6x24 has low-profile turrets that are capped for protection against accidental movement.
In the Viper PST Gen. 2 series 4 different magnification rifle scopes are available, and the biggest two (3-15x44 and 5-25x50) are also available with the reticle in the first focal plane (reticle changes simultaneously with the magnification) or in the second focal plane ( reticle has the same size in the entire magnification range). These rifle scopes are available also in MIL or MOA versions, and the turrets and the reticle are always matched. If you order a MIL version, the clicks are in 0.1 MIL, but if you order a MOA version, the clicks will be in ¼ MOA. All Viper PST rifle scopes (except the wide-angle model) have an adjustable parallax turret on the left side of the scope, and the parallax can be adjusted from 20 yards (18 meters) to infinity. All Vortex Viper PST Gen. 2 rifle scopes have an illuminated reticle with 10 intensity settings.
In the Viper PST Gen. 2 only the best XD™ Lens Elements are used, which dramatically increases the resolution and color fidelity, and that's why the images are more sharp and crisp. All lenses inside the Viper PST rifle scopes are also XR™ fully multi-coated for more light-transmission and even better contrast. The outer lenses have also an additional coating named ArmorTek, which makes the surface more scratch-resistant and protects the lenses from scratches, oil, and dirt. The image quality is much better than in the older Viper PST generation, thanks to all these new features.
The main tube is made from a single-piece aluminum for more strength and reliability, and the mounting diameter is 30 millimeters so many mounting solutions are available for any weapon platform. The outer surface is hard-anodized for a more scratch-resistant finish. The internal of the tube is also argon filled so these rifle scopes can be used also in a very cold environment and will not fog internally.
All Vortex Viper PST Gen. 2 rifle scopes are made in the Philippines and are covered with the great Vortex VIP Warranty.
The Vortex Viper PST Gen. 2 rifle scopes can only be mounted with 30 mm rings.
