The Vortex Viper PST Gen. 2 5-25x50 is a rifle scope designed for shooting on targets at long distances, but mostly if the distance is known, because of the reticle which is placed in the second focal plane. This rifle scope is also perfect for hunting on great distances, because the reticle doesn't cover a lot of the target. This means, the reticle has always the same dimensions, what is very usable for sports shooting and hunting, because the reticle is well visible at low magnifications, and is not thick at the maximal magnification. 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 only with MOA turrets, so one click makes ¼ MOA corrections.
In the Viper PST Gen. 2 5-25x50 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 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 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 25 yards / 23 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 5-25x50 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 5-25x50 rifle scope can only be mounted with 30 mm rings or monoblock mounts.
