Vortex Optics' 3-15x44 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. 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 side-focus adjustment dial and offers a graduated control knob with 10 brightness levels. The parallax-free can be adjusted from 20 yds 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 the 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. The entire construction is robust, argon-filled, and O-ring sealed for a fog and waterproof performance to ensure reliable performance for years of service.

    3-15x44 Viper PST Gen II Riflescope (EBR-2C MRAD Illuminated Reticle, Matte Black) is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value The pst gen 2 3-15 ffp...this scope, for me, feels like I'm sitting behind something special. I love the reticle, especially the FFP feature. Illuminated, it feels great for dawn and dusk shooting. I haven't experienced any issue with it, mounted on a High end .30-06 it pairs up perfectly. Go check one out when you get a chance. I can't see anyone being disappointed with this scope. You will have to fix your shooting habits long before you have to upgrade your glass to be effective.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Clear I have been enjoying this scope on my Tikka CTR .308 My primary use is for hunting and the illuminated reticle is a great benefit at the low light times of the hunt. With Vortex's QR. base, this scope has enough range on the reticle to reach out to 1100 Meters without needing to hold-over the target. I had the opportunity to compare my rifle scope to a spotting scope last week when we saw a moose in the mountains at 600 Meters distance, and admittedly we had better success viewing points of the animal through my PST 2, at 15X then we did thourgh my friends Diamondback spotting scope on 45X. All that to say I was pleased with my optics. My friend, after trying my gun said "you could shoot the needles off a pine tree with this scope".

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Optic! I have the SPT Gen II on my 308 Rem 700 and it's awesome. Dialing in the ranges could not be easier and a 600 yard shot is no longer out of range. Now if I miss I can't blame it on the gun or optic, it's all me. The glass is clear and bright, not too heavy and the illuminated reticle is very handy when the light begins to fade. The only thing I would change is to make the illuminated part time out after a few hours to save battery life. I have left it on by accident a few times and then get out into the field with a dead battery.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal clear Purchased this scope for my Christensen arms ridgeline 300 win. Scope is crystal clear. Very forgiving eyereleif. Focus is smooth and very precise. Solid turrets. Great scope. Love my gen 1 one but these gen II’s addresses the few few issues I have with the first gen’s.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great option for longer barreled AR I picked up this up to use on a 20" barreled .223 AR15 to hunt deer, coyotes, and eventually prairie dogs. 15x is plenty of zoom for the caliber and the distances I shoot, and the reticle matches my 4.5-27x56 that sits on my 6.5CM bolt gun to keep things familiar.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite Have had this scope mounted on an x-1 RRA all summer and it has performed flawlessly!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really nice clarity and features but... While zeroing my brand new scope, after five rounds of 300WM, the parallax side focus died.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gen 1 was much better. Won't buy another Gen 2 I own two Gen 1 PST's and like them alot. However, I think Vortex has ruined the PST line with the Gen 2. 1) The reticle is too small and fine to be used on low power. I have a Gen 1 PST in FFP and it's reticle is bigger than the Gen 2. Vortex has always had pretty thin reticles but they have always at least been decent. With the Gen 2 the reticle is barely visible on 3x depending on the background. If it was offered in SFP I'd probably get that one since the reticle would at least be bigger. Unless this thing is always going to be dialed up for long distance I would not recommend. 2) This thing weighs a TON compared to the Gen 1's. I can only hope they are more durable now than before. Really that's the only justification for adding so much weight to a scope. This Gen 2 is like boat anchor. It is not a good option for someone looking to save weight on their rifle. 3) The illumination dial is very hard to turn. Much harder than the Gen 1's. Not sure why this change was necessary. They do offer a SFP version in MOA/MOA which is probably what I would buy if I was forced to own this scope. But I really want a MIL/MIL since that's what my other scopes are. Vortex needs to increase the size/thickness of the reticle or offer SFP versions. I'd be fine with FFP if the reticle was visible on 3x. They also need to shave a bunch of weight off this thing and fix the illumination knob. I used to think Vortex was my go-to manufacturer for tactical scopes, but since they've ruined the PST I will be looking for other manufacturers. I returned my Gen 2 to retailer I bought it from.
