Vortex Viper HS 2.5-10x44 Details

An extremely versatile hunting scope that is also useful for fun or sports shooting to some extent. The wide angled, large lens offers a large view field at the minimum, 2.5x magnification, which is perfect for stalking prey, while the 10x maximum magnification still gives the possibility to hit anything that might have gotten away. The very fine, SFP reticle is true at maximal magnification to help with shot placement at longer ranges, especially with the great and easy to use Dead-Hold BDC reticle.

This scope will come in handy at any shooting scenario, for hunters or just fun plinkers. It is compact and light, but sturdy enough to withstand shots with any caliber. With the versatility, quality and durability, it is a bargain at this price.


Advanced Features

The tube is machined out of a single piece of aircraft grade aluminum, sealed with O-rings and hard anodized. This will make it durable at any conditions, and will protect it from damp, sunlight, strikes and scratches. The scope is also water-tight and shock proof. The XD, low light dispersion lenses will provide a clear image and are coated with ArmotTek coating to prevent stains, scratches and to repel water, dust, oil and fingerprints. The scope is also Argon purged to prevent internal fogging.


Reticle Illumination

The Viper HS series of scopes does not come with reticle illumination. The large lenses will make up for that to some point, but due to the thin reticle crosses, these are less useful at night or dim light. Nonetheless, this will make them easier to use at long ranges.


Configuration Options

This turrets are capped for extra protection. They are easily usable, and allow for easy re-indexing as they can be reset without any tools. The side focus turret allows for parallax setting, and the quick-focus eyepiece allows for fast reticle focusing.

The scope comes with the V-Plex or the Dead-Hold BDC reticle. The V-Plex is an all-purpose, easy to use reticle perfect for hunting, while the Dead-Hold has an integrated BDC system which helps with shot placement at longer ranges. Both are set in MOA with adjustment graduation of ¼ MOA per click.

Like all Viper HS models, it has increased elevation and windage travel of 86 MOA, for easy and versatile adjustment possibilities. 


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
