An affordable, but first class hunting scope made for medium and longer ranges, that will serve perfectly to any hunter looking for a rifle scope with great durability, features and the ability to perform and pretty much any range. The 42mm XD lens in combination with high-tech coatings and the fast focus eyepiece will offer a clear and crisp image in any and all conditions, while the adjustable parallax will ensure it stays so while changing ranges. The zoom adjustments for this will be done smoothly and easily with the Precision-glide Erector System.
The maximum 16x magnification goes hand in hand with the Dead-Hold BDC that enables a skilled shooter to easily and accurately estimate hold-over and scores well placed shots at a distance. Precise, rugged and lightweight, this scope is well worth the purchase as any hunter or sport shooter will quickly find out.
Just like the Diamondback series, the HP (High Performance) scopes are machined out of a single piece, aircraft aluminum that will withstand the kick of any caliber, and is made for long lasting 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 coated with ArmorTek coating, to prevent scratches, fingerprints and stains and the coating will repel water and grease drops as well. It has a XR layer as well, to prevent reflection and deliver excellent image. The high quality, are made of XD glass for low light dispersion and increased color, resolution and sharpens. The whole scope is sealed and watertight, and the Argon purging of the interior will prevent any fogging on the internal lenses.
The Diamondback HP 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. It also comes with low light dispersion lenses to ensure enough light gets trough to allow for comfort. The fine cross-hairs will enable shooting even at large magnification, but the scope is not made for dim light shooting.
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, a 15 MOA travel per turn and have an impressive 80 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.
