Product Highlights
  • 30mm Tube
  • 1/4 MOA Impact Point Correction
  • Tall Uncapped Turrets
  • Waterproof
  • Fogproof
  • Side-Focus Parallax Knob
  • EBR-1 MOA Reticle in the Second Plane

Featuring a 30 mm tube, MOA-based precision adjustments, and an EBR-1 MOA reticle in the second focal plane, the Viper PST 6-24x50 from Vortex delivers top-shelf high-powered performance.

The Viper PST is configured with a high-performance optical system. XD lens elements have been employed to ensure maximum resolution and contrast. The entire optical path is fully multicoated with Vortex's anti-reflective XR coatings for optimum light transmission. Finally, the external lens surfaces have been treated with ArmorTek - an ultra-hard scratch-resistant coating that repels water, oil, and salts.

This scope was built to thrive amidst the challenges of rugged field use and abuse. The rugged 30 mm tube is constructed from a single piece of lightweight yet durable aluminum. The tube's exterior is hard-coat anodized, and then it is o-ring sealed and purged with argon gas to ensure a fog-resistant water-tight seal. The erector assembly has been thoughtfully designed, precision-built, and meticulously set into place. Special care has been taken to reduce wear and tear while enhancing durability and repeatability.

EBR-1 MOA Reticle in the Second Plane

  • This reticle is positioned in the rear or second focal plane; it does not change dimensions when the scope's magnification is dialed up or down.

  • EBR-1 MOA: distance ranging reticle with MOA-based hash-marks for windage and elevation correction

            Comments about Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 Riflescope (Matte Black):

            I purchased this scope for my 22-250 target rifle. It currently has a Nikon Buckmasters scope on it. I've been looking for a better scope for several months until I came across Vortex. After reading numerous reviews praising the quality of Vortex, I went to a local store to compare. I was able to compare similar magnifications for Zeiss, Vortex, and Leupold. To me, Vortex was easily the better optics. I ordered this one from B&H. No one else had a better price. Prompt shipping and excellent packaging. No complaints at all. Now I'm just waiting on my new scope rings so I can mount the scope on my rifle. From the little bit I've been able to look through the scope in my back yard, I've been thoroughly impressed. I think you would be hard pressed to find a better scope at a better price.

                The only thing that I wish is that this scope came w rings. Had I not had to spend an additional [$] for the rings - which are quite good as well - I would have spent the additional [$] and gotten the first focal plane viper.
