The 3-12x42 Diamondback HP Riflescope from Vortex Optics is a versatile 1" main-tube scope featuring a built-in zoom eyepiece and the Vortex-exclusive Dead-Hold BDC reticle. This is a modified duplex with hashmarks on the hoizontal and lower-vertical axes to aid in ranging, hold-over, and ballistic drop compensation set on the Second Focal Plane (SFP). The scope produces crisp and clear images with accurate color representation by using Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass and Vortex's proprietary XR optical coatings. ED glass corrects for chromatic aberration to eliminate color and image distortion on the edges of the field of view, while the anti-reflective XR coatings ensure as much light as possible is transferred through the optical tube for a bright and clear view. Internally, the Diamondback has the Precision-glide prism system that ensures that the zoom function remains smooth and easy in all weather and temperature conditions.

Windage and elevation turrets allow for 1/4 MOA per click shot correction to get you on-target, and they are re-settable to zero after your initial sighting. An easily accessible side focus wheel gives you parallax correction. The exterior optical surfaces have ArmorTek coatings that bead and repel water and oils, while offering protection against scratches and abrasions. Its aluminum housing has a scratch and corrosion-resistant anodized finish, and is argon-filled for water and fogproof performance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope! I bought this scope as a package with a Howa 1500 .308. Clear glass, easily able to adjust the turrets to engage targets. I have also purchased the Diamondback Binocs and they are just as clear. From here on out, Vortex will be my only choice of scope/glass! Must buy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful scope I purchased this scope to put on my .308 deer rifle. Super easy to mount and zero. Probably the nicest glass I have found in this price range. If I ever need another scope I will not hesitate to purchase a vortex.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy! My brother in law and I both have this scope. He bought the BDC and I have the VPlex. Originally had a Nikon on my deer rifle and bought this one for a .17hmr plinker. When I mounted this on my Rimfire rifle and saw how clear it was... even at the edges, I immediately mounted it on my hunting rifle instead of the Nikon. I can’t say enough good things about this scope. Unmatched clarity and features for a scope of this price and how could you beat the warranty? Buy one now. Don’t wait.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value and Quality I bought this scope as one of my first somewhat expensive scopes, ended up loving it so much more than any other scopes I have owned and am now switching out to all vortex slowly!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy The Diamondback hp line is a great balance between price and features. The view quality is great and is perfect for a budget package without giving up a reliable optic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One for the money Vortex Optics is offeringthe best quality optics for the price. this is my second scope from that brand. i have been running a diamondback on one of my ARs for a year now with 500+ rounds. it is rock solid and has kept mea at -1 MOA consistantly. the view is clear and sharp with great eye relief. i expect the HP will perform as well and better with the AO feature. try to find an optic of this quality with these advanced features at this price...it cannot be done.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clearest scope for the money Comparing this scope to other high end scopes, this one blows them out of the water. For the price and quality, you can not beat this deal. The reticle is very helpful to guage the distance of a shot. Optics are a bit larger, so at least medium scope rings and an adjustable rail may be needed. The 3-12 power is just about the most versatile and useful range you could get.
