Vortex Optics' 5-25x50 Viper PST Gen II Riflescope is a rock-solid scope, ideally suited to provide you an upper hand in close quarters combat. Its superior quality optical system matches the precision and strength of the mechanics to deliver the accuracy and reliability required in demanding situations. 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 MRAD reticle. The reticle features a modified German 4 style with three medium posts and an illuminated crosshair containing a system of MRAD 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. The scope's windage and elevation provide exposed graduated turrets with red fiber optic position markers on the knobs.

    Vortex PST-5258 reviews

    5-25x50 Viper PST Gen II Riflescope (EBR-2C MRAD Illuminated Reticle, Matte Black) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 50.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Total Package This optic is feature rich! I have a G1 Razor, and the PSTG2 Includes the best, precise zero/zero stop I have used with the addiction of smaller profile turrets. The EBR-2C reticle is very useful for various types of shooting especially with the well thought-out illumination. This optic also focuses down to 25 yds which is important to the hunter, competition, and tactical shooter. If you are going to venture into this price range, the VIP warranty brings a peace of mind. The only recommendation I could make would be to include a factory throw lever, however the magnification ring is very smooth. I believe this is the best optic (feature/price) currently available.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Viper PSTG2 5-25x50mm FFP MRAD Purchased the PSTG2 5-25x50mm FFP MRAD in April and after a long awaited backorder time it finally arrived. I mounted it to my .308 Ruger Precision Rifle, sighted it in, and verified my DOPE. Result: dead center at 1000 yds. I could not be happier, the zero stops are a breeze to set, the glass is excellent, and I absolutely love the reticle design. This is taking the place of a borrowed PSTG1, and I am very much looking forward to taking it to a competition. I definitely recommend getting a set of the Vortex Defender caps for it, the cheaper caps from other manufacturers break very quickly. Great product Vortex!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Precision Performance! This scope is amazing. I have this on a Ruger Precision Rifle and it performs perfectly. It's First Focal Plane so your adjustments are effective at any magnification. This optic works beautifully at all ranges and all magnification levels. Crystal clear in low light, illuminated reticle works perfectly. This is a precision tool used on a precision weapon. I would trust this optic to do what it needs to do, no matter what I asked. Not often do you find a piece of equipment that you can build a rig around, but the PST Gen 2 is a piece that you. If you need high end performance at a great price, give this scope a look.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope for anything. Iv had this scope for a few months now, clarity is a vastly improved, relocating the illumination to inside the paralax knob was a nice sleek choice also clicks off between every increase or decrease in illumination is a added bonus, leaving it between 3 and 4 gives great low light or some added color against a black background. Scope tracks true, ebr-c2 reticle has a lot of information on it without being crowded and overwhelming. The booklet gives you all your MIL sizes for your hash marks and dots. It has a small open center so no issue with thick lines at 25 power covering dots. Sunshade comes with is a.mice

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal clear, great range, solid scope! I bought this scope for a Ruger Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor. Looking through the scope it is crystal clear. Being that it is 5-25 power you have a great range to cycle through. At 5 power, while not ideal, you can shoot at shorter ranges ok, but at the highest power, you can get good visuals of targets at much further ranges. The scope is built extremely well, the turrets have nice tactile clicks and everything is very solid. My only complaint, which is mostly due to it being so new, is the illumination knob is very tight, and bare handed it is difficult to turn, but with some gloves, it was much easier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knocking them dead My son bought this two months ago ready for the elk and deer season and getting ready for a moose hunt in British Columbia ( senior gift). He saved all summer and sold his last Vortex to buy this one.You can't ask for a better rifle scope. The main purpose of buying this one was for the long range ability and to take on his moose hunt. So if he has to take a five or six hundred yard shot he will. Will be bringing this scope to Crystal Lake Resort to bag that trophy once in a lifetime Moose, bear, and wolf this September.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice for PDogs; can't be beat If you're considering an extended range variable scope that won't bankrupt you, the Vortex PST Gen II 5-25 FFP is a great choice. From the turret adjustment, magnification range, optical clarity, or durability, this optic has you covered. This piece sits on top of a 20" Varmint MSR that I built for a Prairie Dog hunt. During the hunt, I was able to consistently engage targets from 30 yards to over 500 yards. Since this is a FFP riflescope, I was also able to use any magnification to spot for my hunting partner and call out adjustments to his POA. The turrets are surprisingly good for a scope I this class as well. If you need a scope in this role, you can't beat the feature-packed PST Gen II for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope Bought this recently as an upgrade to my gen I pst. Moving the lighting button to the same spot as parallax adjustment is nice, though the lighting is a bit too hard to operate for my liking. The RZR zero stop can be a little hard to set up if you want to be able to go "above" zero. (I zero for 200m, but want 8-10 clicks available for closer ranges). These two things doesn't subtract from so much from the overall impression that I will consider anything but 5 stars. Keep up the good work Vortex
