The Vortex Viper PST Gen. 2 2-10x32 is a very universal tactical rifle scope, that can be used for shooting targets on various distances from short to medium range, and also long-range is possible on bigger steel plates. Stalking hunting, mountain hunting and so on is also great with this rifle scope, because of the low weight of only 746 grams.
From all Viper PST Gen. 2 rifle scopes this is the only model that is available with the reticle only in the first focal plane, so the reticle changes the size when you change the magnifications. On the smallest magnification, the reticle is thin, on the biggest magnification the reticle gets thicker. This means the lines in the reticle have always the same distances on the target, so you can easily calculate the distance to the target and make windage and elevation corrections. The reticle is also illuminated, so this rifle scope can be used also in worse lighting conditions. It has 10 brightness settings, all for low light use. You can order the scope in MRAD or in MOA, and the reticle will always be matched with the turrets.
The turrets are exposed tactical, 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. On the left side of the rifle scope is the illumination control and the parallax control. The parallax is adjustable from 20 yards / 18 meters to infinity.
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.
In the Viper PST Gen. 2 2-10x32 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.
Vortex Viper PST Gen. 2 2-10x32 rifle scopes are made in the Philippines and are covered with the great Vortex 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.
The Vortex Viper PST Gen. 2 2-10x32 rifle scope can only be mounted with 30 mm rings or monoblock mounts.
