Vortex Viper PST gen II 3-15x44 FFP Details

Vortex Viper PST Gen. 2 3-15x44 FFP rifle scope description

The Vortex Viper PST Gen. 2 3-15x44 FFP is the most universal rifle scope in the entire Viper PST Gen. 2 production line, thanks to the great magnification range from 3x to 15x. This rifle scope can be used for hunting on short distances thanks to the big field of view of 41.2 feet on 100 yards / 13.7 meters on 100 meters, and also stalking, mountain hunting, long-range shots and much more, because of the slick and low-weight design. With this rifle scope hits on long distances are also very easy to make, because of the 15x maximal magnification.

The glass etched reticle is set 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.

With the big 44 millimeters objective lens this rifle scope is very bright in low-light, thanks to the special glass and special coatings that are inside this rifle scope. It has the same if not an even brighter image in low light than it's predecessor, the Viper PST 4-16x50, although it has a smaller objective lens.

In the Viper PST Gen. 2 3-15x44 FFP only the top-tier extra-low dispersion 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 Gen. 2 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.

The illumination can be set to 10 levels and there is an off-switch between each intensity level.

The riflescope has tactical, exposed turrets, so the user can change the elevation and windage quickly without taking off the caps. The elevation turret has now also a true RZR Zero Stop function, which can be adjusted under the turret, and now no more CRS (customizable rotational stop) shims are needed. The Zero Stop mechanism prevents the turret from dialing below the zeroed position. 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.

Vortex Viper PST Gen. 2 3-15x44 FFP rifle scopes are made in the Philippines and are covered with the great Vortex VIP Lifetime 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 first scope i received i was not entirely happy with cosmetically, it had a kind of stain in the finish of the elevation turret and on a small part of the main tube. Although not entirely seamless, optics-trade collected the scope from my home in the UK and sent me a replacement. I trust them to do the right thing and would be comfortable ordering from them again.
The second scope i received had a very small blemish in the finish of the elevation cap but i was happy enough to keep it (i have the 2-10x32 pst gen 2 so i know how they should look}.
The scope itself i think is superb. I had ordered a Meopta zd 4-16x44 rd from another source but returned it quickly and then bought this one. The Meopta was second focal plane, had a super fine reticle that i could hardly make out in dim light and with only a central dot illumination. The turrets had very limited adjustment range and could not really be used for dialling.
This vortex does not have quite the stunning optics of the meopta, although certainly excellent. But it is the features that blow it away. As with the 2-10, the field of view is market leading, the construction is heavy duty, the turrets are superb- and also have zero stop. The reticle is numbered on the hash marks and all the hash marks are illuminated (well done vortex). All the dials feel quality and move smoothly whilst feeling like they are made to very close tolerances. I personally don't mind the illumination dial, yes it is a little awkward to grip and turn, but normally you leave it next to the number you always use and don't mess with it. Atleast you know it is not going to accidentally turn on in your gun bag and discharge the battery, which is reassuring.
The glass is, as i said, excellent- especially for the price. This combined with all the features i have mentioned make this a great scope. I have other high end scopes including schmidt and bender etc. so i have used/own the best.
This is my third vortex optic and i like this dynamic company, so well done to vortex and thanks for a great scope.

Incredible optics for this price By
I just could not believe how good this is, when I started to use it. In terms of glass quality it can almost be compared with my Razor 5-20x50. Well above all my expectations from a scope for a roughly 1000 EUR. Clear, bright and sharp.

The turrets are however a bit stiff but overall build quality is also great.
