Vortex DBK-08-BDC overview

  • 1Description

Vortex is dedicated to the development and production of unique optics with features that allow you to see the world more clearly. Their commitment to supporting efforts in the important areas of land conservation, wildlife and field habitat keep them in tune with the environment and outdoor enthusiasts worldwide.

The Vortex Diamondback 1.75-5x32 Riflescope is loaded with performance enhancing features. Argon gas purging of the main tube has been implemented for a long-term solution to the negative effects of dynamic weather conditions and all glass surfaces have been fully multicoated for a crisp sight picture under difficult lighting conditions.

The 1.75-5x zoom range of this scope delivers fast target acquisition and a bright sight picture. Whether you're in dense brush, heavy woods, or sighting against dark and busy backgrounds; this scope will get you on target quickly & accurately.

To use a riflescope with your firearm, you'll need a mounting base and mounting rings in addition to the scope itself. Bases attach to your firearm and rings attach to your scope. By affixing the scope mounted rings to the rifle mounted base you create a reliable accurate, and secure sighting system. Proper spacing of the rings, as well as the ring height should be considered to ensure a proper line of sight can be established. This will maximize the value of your investment, and enhance your shooting experience. It should be noted that in many mounting applications, a professional gunsmith's skills will be needed for proper installation.

    Vortex DBK-08-BDC reviews

    1.75-5x32 Diamondback Riflescope is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bang for the buck! I recently purchased this scope after deciding to move from a red dot to a magnified optic on my AR15. I was not interested in a scope the size of the rifle or capable of spotting distant planets, a 1.75-5 power was precisely what I needed. The build quality and attention to detail are outstanding, the glass is clear and the reticle crisp. Sight in was a standard affair and I feel the scope has allowed my rifle’s accuracy to be realized. I am still in awe that this level of quality and performance came so affordably! Thank you Vortex

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from fish eye I have had this scope over a year now, it is very distorted around the edges throughout the magnification range but is worse at low end, it is like looking through a fisheye camera lense, I sent a SPARC dot scope back a few months ago because of a halo in the tube and was told nothing was wrong, I would expect the same answer on this scope.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favourite Scope I own. I own 5 vortex scopes at this point and this is by far my favourite. I hunt in dense forest and the low magnification, clarity and weight make this amazing for the hunting I do. I liked it so much that I bought one for my brother and dad. My only gripe is the BDC reticle is useless to me because of how close the hashes are to each other. At the time the BDC was my only option but I see they make a Duplex as well that would fit me better.
