  • 1Description

Vortex Optics' 1-6x24 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 2nd focal plane VMR-2 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 performance is set 100 yards.

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 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 fogproof, and O-ring sealed waterproof to ensure reliable performance for years of service.

    Vortex PST-1607 reviews

    1-6x24 Viper PST Gen II Riflescope (VMR-2 MRAD Illuminated Reticle, Matte Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Game Changer I purchased my Viper PST Gen II 1-6 for my primary 3 Gun rifle. I am thoroughly happy with my decision as the scope has exceeded my expectations. I love the MRAD reticle, combine that with the clarity of this scope and it is untouchable at the price point offered here. The adjustments are fine enough to achieve pinpoint accuracy to the shooter which translates to confidence in the shooter. The 1-6 variable magnification is perfect for 3 Gun competition offering true 1X with no visual distortion for those fast burn em down bay stages and at 6X you can easily identify long range challenges presented in 3 Gun. I also appreciate the inclusion of a sun shade. It is trivial to some but I have used the shade to my advantage several times this season while shooters using other scopes have been forced to fabricate solutions using kydex and I've even seen cardboard shot shell boxes used to fight the glare. I am extremely satisfied with this scope and intend to run this as my go to 3 Gun optic for the foreseeable future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do not hesitate to purchase. I have been using the Viper Gen 2 1-6 for months now and I have been extremely satisfied. I have used it in close environments effectively (5-50 meters) and also effectively gotten hits at distance (1000 meters). I am really picky when it comes to reticles as I use them a lot. I like them simple, but you also need enough in the glass to do work and make quick calculations with out dialing. Vortex has done it with the Viper Gen 2. It weighs a little more than I would like, but the construction seems very robust. I smashed it against the ground (not intentionally) and turned around moments later to engage past 700 meters with pinpoint confidence. This scope is the best glass I have ever bought for the money. I prefer it even to the razor as it is lighter. Do not hesitate to purchase if you are on the fence. You will not be disappointed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from LPVO Patrol Rifle I honestly bought the Viper PST Gen II 1-6x24 MRAD, with a sense of reluctance, since all of my experience has been with the Razor line. The purpose of the Viper PST Gen II 1-6x24 MRAD was for a LPVO patrol rifle project. After many high round count training courses and consistent performance from the Viper PST Gen II 1-6x24 MRAD, it has earned my confidence. Deploying in a domestic LEO role demands reliability and performance, from a patrol rifle and the chosen optic. I am impressed and confident in my selection, of the Viper PST Gen II 1-6x24 MRAD, and no longer hold any reluctance, to deploy in a patrol level DM role, with the Viper PST Gen II 1-6x24 MRAD, as it has certainly proven itself in capability and performance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best AR scope available I paired this scope with the Precision Extended Cantilever Mount and couldn’t be more impressed. The clarity of the scope from 1x to 6x is beyond comparison and 1x is the most impressive. Edge to edge perfectly crisp. Both eyes open and the reticle floats in front of you. As easy to shoot and as fast as any red dot and this does have a red dot! With 10 different powers the dot in the center illuminates and the best part is between ever power is an “off” setting. At any power you can turn the setting up or down one click and the dot will turn off. Unbelievable scope. The only problem is I only have one! Also, the magnification ring is very fluid and easy to turn right out of the box but you won’t regret adding the throw lever.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great replacement for the PST 1-4 I bought this as a replacement for the Viper PST 1-4x on a 300 black 10in SBR. It is the best bang-for-the-buck in the clarity. My only drawback is it is a little on the heavy side and my elevation and windage turrets are extremely hard to turn and mushy. I'm confident that Vortex will take care of the issue though, if past performance with customer service is an indication. I would have given it 5 Stars if not for the turret issue. Adjustment is consistent but is more than .5 MOA per click but that could just be because my turret are so mushy

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 85% of the Razor 1-6 at a lower price point I picked one of these up to run on a backup 3-gun rifle, to train with, and spare some abuse for my Razor 1-6. Both use the same VMR-2 MRAD reticle, some commonality makes things nice there when going from gun to gun. The scope is clearer than I expected, coming from normally using the premium Razor line scope. While using it for a backup and training optic, I could see using this as my primary 3-gun optic without giving up much! The included sun shade was a nice touch!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don’t hesitate to buy this I’ve been using this optic for a month and all I can say is it’s incredible. The glass clarity is amazingly clear from edge to edge, eye relief is very generous and the mrad reticle is clean and simple. The illumination works very well and is definitely day light bright. I definitely recommend this optic for someone wanting a 1-6 platform.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value! I recently upgraded my 3gun rifle to this scope. Immediately I saw improvement in my game! Even with sunlight in my eyes the reticle was bright and crisp. Long range was a breeze at 2,3,4&500 yrds! Placed 3rd overall on that stage against shooters with optics triple the price. Buy with confidence. This scope rocks.
