Vortex DBK-03-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 3.5-10x50 Diamondback Riflescope is built to endure, perform, and excel. Its one-piece center-tube design is carefully constructed from 6061-T6 aluminum, and fitted with a precision adjustment system that allows for a generous amount of correction. The optical system is fully multicoated for a fine line of sight, and the entire assembly is then purged with argon gas for flawless all-weather performance.

With its mid-level magnification range, and a larger 50mm objective, this fine sighting system is designed to be an excellent all-around performer with outstanding twilight performance.

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-03-BDC reviews

    3.5-10x50 Diamondback Riflescope is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest scopes best prices I bought my Diamondback a little over a month ago after doing research on a new scope for my Remington 783 .308. All I have to say is this product is the best purchase I have made. So far I have shot a few coyotes and numerous hogs with this combo and it does not disappoint. Once it is zeroed in the scope stays there and is much easier to use compared to other companies. I cannot wait until deer season comes up and get my deer and know it was the scope that allowed me to have a great shot because of the clarity and bdc that the scope has. I will stay with vortex for life

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gave This Old Guy Hid Eyes Back After many years of always swearing by a certain big brand of optics, my son noticed how I was coming in earlier from evening hunts, I'm 64 years young ,but between the dimming light and the shadows, I was quickly becoming a morning hunter only. My son got me to try a Vortex, Diamondback. WOW I'm back in the stand till dark again. Light transmission is off the charts compared to my old brand . From glassing the fields and carrying over into the woods. Shadows are gone ,distinction of what I'm looking at wither it be the points on a rack or making sure there's no branch's in the way for the shot . I just bought my 2nd one ,I am a Vortex hunter from now on. Thank you for getting me back out in the woods.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best optics at this price Folks, I'd get a Vortex scope before they realize they can charge much more for their product. I zeroed my new Savage .308 with only three rounds and no bore-sighting at 100 yards. Crisp, clear and comparable to German optics at twice or three times the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex never disappoints After much debate i decided to go with the Diamondback 3.5-10 riflescope for my new .223 that i will mostly use for coyote, varmint hunting. I am very impressed with this scope. Far brighter and clearer that the Nikon and other scopes in the price range. With the LRBC to follow it, you put your exact bullet information in and it gives you your market on your BDC reticle. Last but not least, the vortex warranty is outstanding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's better than a Shamwow I bought this scope to put on my Savage 308 Hoghunter build. I don't know how this company builds such a fantastic product for this price. Clear, crisp views from the reticle, the adjustments are solid. Get the BDC reticle, it is worth it. I love being able to use the LRBC too. Was ringing steel targets at 800 yards easily with this scope. In nerd speak this scope adds at +19 to accuracy, +27 to value and +9 to charasima.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing compares I’ve owned this scope for a few months now and I’ve mounted it on a couple different caliber ARs. Right now I have it paired with my .223 16” barrel, suppressed, shooting 72gr. My longest kill shot measured with a laser is 320yds. I know I could push this shot out farther but haven’t had an opportunity to yet. My favorite way to “sell” this scope to my friends is to have them get used to any other scope they have, then have them shoot with mine. It’s so easy to see and feel the superior quality that only vortex produces.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Scope, Awesome Price! I purchased this scope for my Ruger 257Roberts hunting rifle and it's perfect. You cant go wrong with the price to quality comparison.The glass is crystal clear and I have yet to have a problem with it fogging up like past scopes. All in all its a very durable and reliable scope.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pick for a 300WM Bought this for a Remington 770 in 300 Win Mag that kicks like an absolute mule. The added eye relief was what sold me on this scope but once I put it on I knew it was another quality Vortex product.
