With the Extra-Low Dispersion (XD) optical elements, treated with the high-transmission XR full multi-coatings and ArmorTek protective coatings, you will obtain bright, clear, glare-free, and true color images along with protection of exterior lens surfaces from scratches, dirt, and oil stains. With the wide 50mm objective lens, you scope will gather most light in the most challenging lighting conditions and perform well in twilight. To enable with the laser-sharp shot placements, the scope features the illumined 1st focal plane EBR-2C MOA reticle. The reticle features a modified German 4 style with three medium posts and an illuminated crosshair containing a system of MOA ranging and compensation markings. The illumination rheostat is located on the windage and elevation box and offers a graduated control knob with 10 brightness levels. The parallax-free can be adjusted 25 yards to infinity.

The high-quality aluminum housing is built around a durable single-piece 30mm maintube. One of the highlights of the mechanics is the Precision-Glide Erector System that ensures that zooming action remains smooth under the most challenging conditions. For consistent repeatability and ease of adjustment, Vortex outfitted this optic with a Precision-Force Spring System.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5x25 PST gen 2 What can I say, it's a vortex! Great scope so far, the glass is clear quality, the reticle is nice and useful. Turrets are solid and positive, all tracks well. Very happy with the gen 2.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear and easy to set zero stop Preorded this and it was well worth the wait. Very easy to set the zero stop and very clear compared to the gen 1 6-24 pst. Taken it out to 600 yards under prs match conditions and was very pleased. Magnification ring is a little stiff buthe easier with a throw lever. Clicks are audible and solid. Zero stop is like hitting a wall.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most amazing scope you will ever buy! So I’ve been looking for a new optic to top off my new rifle, I found the viper pst gen 2 and immediately fell in love. I was alittle hesitant at first cause I’ve never spent that much money on an optic before, so I looked around some more and couldn’t find any thing that matched the performance, quality and features, so I bought it. Once I received the scope and mounted it on my rifle I had to stand back and look at it cause of how AWESOME it made my rifle looked. I took it out and shot it and sighted it in, the big turrets help with easy and quick adjustments, also not to mention how crystal clear the image was. If I had to do it all over again, you bet your ace I would choose Vortex again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to shoot with minimal adjustments. I mounted this on my MPR 6.5 Creedmoor and love it by using the reticle I can easily shoot out to 800 without touching the dial. Zeroing in this scope is easy shoot one round place the bullet hole on the reticle grid and adjust the indicated Moa up and over and second round was right on target. The grid works great on days with a variable wind because it is easy to make a correction by using the grid. Kentucky wind-age has never been so easy look at where the bullet hits on the reticle grid adjust accordingly and you should be right on target from there. A salesman damaged a battery cover on my PST scope and after contacting Vortex I had a new one sent to me no charged in less than a week. I added the Vortex level, flip up caps and a power lever to complete a great package.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Riflescope I just picked this scope up about a week ago at a local sporting goods store. I had looked around for a little while for the ideal piece of glass to go on the rifle I'm building. I asked to take a few of them (Vortex, Leupold, and Burris) outside to really see what they looked like outdoors and man was I blown away. The Vortex Viper PST Gen II 5-25x50 was the ticket! The build quality is amazingly sturdy, the reticle is very bright and clear no matter the magnification, and the turrets are all nice and clicky. I doubt that I will ever really use the illumination feature but it had every other thing I wanted so I guess it's just a bit of a bonus if I needed it. Overall though, it far exceeded my expectations and I can't wait to get her mounted up and out shooting! Thanks Vortex!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best piece of Glass I've ever used/owned Ive been using this optic for a few months now and I finally feel comfortable giving a review. Ive used this setup for hog hunting and long range shooting and in all kinds of lighting. I couldn't be more pleased at how this optic performed! I'm excited to see how it works for me coyote hunting. The PST gen2 is almost a must for shooters and hunters who need durable accurate and clear optics

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Short-Long Range Scope I researched for a year before buying this scope. It was everything I had hoped for. It's a perfect all around scope for short & long range needs in one scope. Along with the excellent quality, Vortex's lifetime 100% warranty is a HUGE plus. Drive over it and send it back no questions asked. I just joined a long range shooter/hunting club and the experienced shooters all felt this was the best scope they have seen/used for short and long range needs.
