The Diamondback 2-7x35 is the perfect option for hunters that live and hunt on a versatile terrain, as it enables both bush hunting with its low minimum magnification of 2x and medium or even longer distance shots on open grounds with the 7x maximum magnification. The reticle is set at SFP for faster target choice. Its 35mm lens will let in good light, but without a larger lens or reticle illumination, it’s not made for dusk hunting. The image itself though is crystal clear and crisp and the scope does brandish a fast focus eyepiece, and with the quite fine cross-hairs, it will be no problem to hit the mark at longer distances with the right choice of reticle.
As all Diamondbacks, it’s a very robust, compact and affordable scope. It will fit perfectly on any gun and will withstand the blowback of any caliber. The 2-7x is a good choice to put on any centerfire rifle to pull of short or medium distance shots with ease.
The single piece, aircraft aluminum tube will withstand the kick of any caliber, and is made for durability. It’s hard anodized for protection against the elements. The anodizing is made in matte finish to prevent light reflection for better concealment of the shooter. The lenses are multi-coated to prevent scratches, fingerprints and stains and the coating will repel water and grease drops as well. The whole scope is sealed and watertight, and the Argon purging of the interior will prevent any fogging on the internal lenses.
The Diamondback series of scopes does not come with reticle illumination. They are made for hunting and shooting at daylight and the reticle options are chosen with that in mind. The scopes are made with rather large exit lenses in regards to the magnification options, which will let in enough light for comfortable shooting at any distance with the right scope option.
This turrets come with caps for extra protection while on the move. They are easily re-indexed and resettable. The parallax is fixed, at 91 meters.
The scope comes in two reticle variants, wither the crude yet simple and fine V-Plex cross-hairs or the plain Dead-hold BDC that eliminates guessing and enables simple and quick correction of shot placement. In either case, the turrets have ¼ MOA adjustment graduation and have an impressive 100 MOA travel with both windage and elevation.
All Vortex scopes come with a VIP warranty, which means that if anything goes wrong the Company will cover your scope. Your scope will be either repaired or replaced if it becomes defective, without any costs for you. You can also read more about our warranty policy here.
