Vortex Optics' 3-9x40 Diamondback Tactical Riflescope is a versatile riflescope featuring durable construction, high-quality optics, a zoom eyepiece, and the Vortex-exclusive VMR-1 reticle. The reticle lies in the 2nd focal plane and offers a modified duplex style. The markings on the horizontal and lower-vertical axes aid in ranging and ballistic and wind compensation. The optical system produces crisp and clear images with accurate color representation by utilizing Extra-Low Dispersion (XD) glass and Vortex's proprietary XR optical coatings. While the XD glass corrects color and image distortions on the periphery of the field of view, the anti-reflective XR coatings increase transmission of light and reduce glare.

The high-quality aluminum housing is built around a durable single-piece 1" maintube. One of the defining highlights of the Diamondback tactical scope is its Precision-glide erector system that ensures that zooming action remains smooth under the most challenging conditions. 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from World class optics Bought this having owned a viper pst. This is as clear and bright.perfect for my .223.Vortex are the only glass anyone should consider.corrections made through the turrets are perfect.field of view bright clear with a precise reticle for hold overs in second focal plane.easily zeroed turrets with no need for a tool.vortex are the only optics I will ever purchase.I've recommended to family and friends.this is my second vortex but not my last. I'm in the military and have shot long range with other top end optics but vortex far exceeds them and with a realistic price tag to match. One word to describe vortex , , , precision !!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I finally found my perfect scope! Last week I bought an ISSC SPA TAU .22 lr and since it had quite a price tag I decided to buy a decent scope for it. I settled for this scope after reading many reviews and talking with a local dealer about it. Only after I bought this scope I realzied how perfectly it fits to my needs. You see, being a European it's a real pain calculating with MILS and MOA - even worse if you've got a Mildot-reticle and MOA-turrets on one scope. Translating all these measurements to meaninful metric numbers drives me nuts. Now it's all very easy with this scope since it has a MOA-reticle and MOA-turrets. Now I 'm just picking a distance for zeroing the rifle (e.g. 70 meters) and whenever I need to shoot to, say 100 Meters I just use the maximum magnification and measure in MOA the new POI and with the MOA-turrets i simply dial in the correction and note it in my dope book. No need for headache-calculations anymore!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked at 1000 yards! Used this at a long ranged shooting class. The turrets made dialing 1000 yards quick and simple. Target was an 18 inch silhouette target. Once I dialed in, got 3 out of 5 shots. Rifle was just a basic Ruger American. When asked to switch to the 660 yard challenge target (8 inch) made the turret adjustment and hit on the first shot. Awesome!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Scope for the Money I use this scope on my National Match M1A and it performs flawlessly. I used to have a scope that cost twice as much from another manufacturer on the rifle, but wanted to try the Diamondback Tactical out. I was thrilled with the quality at this price. I would highly recommend this scope for all kinds of applications.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome 1 Scope Great scope for the money, paired this with a TacSol 10/22 and it's simply amazing. Love the turrets, nice tactile clicks with return to zero! The glass is superb for an optic in this price range, Vortex earned my respect on this one. You probably can't find a better 1 tubed scope at this power range.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Deal I bought this scope as a “fill in scope” before i could save up for a scope i really wanted, because this was on sale. The clarity of the scope was very impressive. It didn’t take long to dial in the ruger 270. I no longer think this is a fill in bit a main stay to obe of my favorite rifles.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome optic for the price! Finally got a chance to take out the rifle to a 700 yd range using .300 AAC subsonic blackout with a 16" upper. Sounds crazy right? Well using data, I dialed in the numbers for drop and I was impressed! Hits after hits at 500 yds!
