Viper PST Gen II Riflescopes

CQB, Target Shooting, 3 Gun, Hunting, or Precision Long Range – the PST series has always had a solution. Now in our second generation, we’ve taken Your direct experience and feedback and made our do-it-all series even better. Vortex Nation – meet your new family of Viper PST’s.

pst-riflescope

1-6×24: Now even more versatile, the new PST Gen II 1-6×24 picks up right where the venerable 1-4x left off. With a true 1x on its low end and a monstrous eyebox for close-quarters, rapid acquisition, shooters can easily engage targets in the tightest of scenarios. On the high end of its zoom spectrum, an even more versatile 6x facilitates accurate mid to long-range engagements. A side illumination adjustment, coupled with low-drag capped turrets make for a sleek and streamlined profile. Inside, the same VMR-2 reticle from the Razor Gen II 1-6, with its daylight-bright center illuminated dot, is standard and available in MOA or MRAD.

2-10×32, 3-15×44 and 5-25×50: Meet your new group of long-range workhorses. Whether you’re topping off a DMR-type build or a PRS rig you’ll be pushing to the limits, there is an option just for you. Tall, tactical turrets and a side focus parallax adjustment with integrated illumination help dial in your shots for ultimate precision.  Each model features the patented RZR Zero Stop, taken from our proven Razor HD 5-20×50 riflescope, to ensure you have an accurate and reliable return-to-zero – every time. Reticles include our New EBR-4 and EBR-2C. Available in MOA or MRAD to match your turrets. First Focal Plane reticles are available on select models.

Available Spring 2017


Diamondback Tactical Riflescopes

All of the legendary performance and extreme durability the Diamondback name is known for with a tactical twist, make this series a true head turner.

vortex-5581

Meet the Diamondback Tactical – Your answer when it comes to tactical performance and features in an affordable package. Tall turrets are perfect for dialing Your shots at various distances and deliver accurate, repeatable adjustments over and over. The Diamondback Tactical features an optical system that gives excellent image quality and generous eye relief. Inside, a hashmark-style reticle gives shooters versatile reference points for ranging, holdover and wind calls – extremely useful in tactical shooting applications.

Available Spring 2017


Fury Laser Rangefinding Binocular

    I just purchased the 1600 vortex range finder to find out they are coming out with range finding binocs. Just my luck. Does Vortex have any trade in deals? The range finder is less than 3 weeks old. Used it one night to range my whitetail and BBD. End of story. Really looking forward to checking out the FURY binocs.

    It would be really nice if you would integrate throw levers into the scopes. I’d rather spend an extra $20 on the scope, than $50 to buy an aftermarket throw lever. Apparently Nightforce is going to be doing it.

We do have our Golden Eagle 15-60×52 which is made for F Class and Bench Rest Shooting. Otherwise our Gen II 4.5-27×56 has always been a great long range option.

    I have had a gen 1 pst 6x24x50 ffp on order for over 9 months from my local vortex dealer, including him having my money for that long. Any ideal if there will be enough gen 2’s to cover the market? Or can I expect the same outrageous wait for the gen 2? Are we able to preorder the Gen 2s? At this time im thinking I will get one faster if I preorder a gen 2 rather than wait a full year and have an “older model”.
