Vortex Diamondback 3.5-10x50 Details

The larger but still light and no less robust 3.5-10x comes with a large, 50mm lens that allows light through easier and offer a comfortable view of the target at less light, although it does not have an illuminated reticle to help with shooting at dusk. The extended magnification range of 3.5-10x is set perfectly for the medium ranges, but will allow for rather short or long ranges as well. Therefore, it’s a perfect scope to mount on a shotgun or varmint rifle for pest and predator control as well as for centerfire rifles for big game shooting at longer ranges, with the proper application of the optional Dead-Hold BDC reticle. The lenses on these scopes are of high quality, multi coated with an anti-reflective coating that has a higher light transmission, which will ensure enough light and a clear image, while the fast focus eyepiece will let you focus on target fast. The reticle is set at the SFP to retain that perfectly sized appearance at any magnification.


Advanced Features

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.


Reticle Illumination

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.


Configuration Options

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 comes with a nice BDC system. In either case, the turrets have ¼ MOA adjustment graduation and have an impressive 65 MOA travel with both windage and elevation.


Warranty Information

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


Mounting Options

The Vortex Diamondback 3.5-10x50 has a 25,4mm central tube and need appropriate rings for mounting.

Great Scope By
For me the best scope in its price range. Glass quality is comparable to a NIKON scope, maybe even better.
