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 3-9x40 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.

The variable mid-range magnification of a 3-9x40 scope is extremely flexible; the balance of power against the efficient 40mm objective offers hunters excellent twilight performance with a comfortable sight picture in open fields and dense woods.

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.

    3-9x40 Diamondback Riflescope is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely best one in price range The scope really has the widest field of view in 3X9 size and the clearest glass when compared to the other scopes priced in the same range and even higher. I compared to varix I&II, redfield, bushnell. nikon prostaff and buckmaster. Even though the diamondback was the best in daylight clarity, the buckmaster was the only one that could beat the vortex in low light. It blew me away how much contrast you get with the diamondback when looking through the scope. The extra wide field of view gives you an edge when scanning long range and for close in running game.The finger adjustable turrets are the best also. I chose this scope for my Dad since his eyesight is not what it used to be and it has helped him.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex Diamondback 3-9x40 You can not buy a $$scope this good, ANYWHERE, period!!!! HUGE field of view, solid construction, glass should cost twice as much, bdc is as usable as any hunter needs, without being obtrusive, easy to get behind, and a great warranty. I own Weaver, Nikon( Pro Staff, Buckmaster, and Monarch ), Leopold( vx ll, vx lll, and vx3 ), Bushnell Elite, 3200, 4200, and the new elite, my next scope will be a Vortex. Can't wait to see a Viper.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Vortex Diamondback is a keeper This Diamondback is mounted on a 16 6.8 SPC MSR. The scope looks great, bright and clear to the edges but you do have to look directly through the scope or you loose the image. Adjustments have a positive and audible click. Sighting in was no problem and the adjustments seemed spot on at 100 yards. Although hunting season is out it seems to gather light really well at dusk when just looking through it. I've had limited range time with it so far and haven't had the chance to experiment with the BDC reticle but nothing looks cluttered and the reticle is easy to see. So far I'm well pleased with the scope and B&H.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Vortex 3-9x40 Diamondback Dead-Hold BDC I have a Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 FFP so I knew Vortex produces quality optics and of course you just can't compare a $$scope with a $200 scope. Instead I'll compare it to my Leupold VX2 3-9x40. The Diamondback definitely has better light transmission and produces a crisper image at lower magnifications. The Vortex is 1 shorter overall than the Leupold which is a plus, but I believe that the shorter length leads to a reduced exit pupil which makes eye placement critical to difficult above 7x magnification and about 30% of the image appears blurry or distorted on the edge of the FOV. The Leupold, with the longer OAL, produces a clear image for the entire FOV. Recticle adjustments are well defined and have held well so far. The Dead-Hold BDC recticle works very well with the 147gr 308 Win that I've been shooting in the rifle that the scope is mounted on. Overall, the Vortex appears to be a good quality scope for the money, but I will have to limit field use to under 7x and save higher magnification for target practice only. I'll use the scope rather than send it back, but if I had to do it again I'd buy a different scope.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely nice scope for the money I have several hunting rifles with scopes in this price range, and this is the best. The two notable scopes I'm comparing it to are a Bushnell Elite 3200 3-9x40 and Nikon ProStaff 3-9x40. The Vortex has the widest field of view by far I think. The thing I like best about it is that the black ring you see as a halo around the field of view is very minimal with this scope compared to the others. The Bushnell, in particular, makes you feel like you're looking through a tube (well, I guess you are), but the Vortex feels a little bit more like a red dot in that regard. While the differences between the scopes are relatively minor otherwise, these two put it well ahead of the others, especially considering that the Nikon and Bushnell cost about the same.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality I was recently bore sighting several rifles in low light. I was shocked how much brighter the diamondback was compared to a 3 other much more expensive scopes I had mounted. 3-9 is also a great range of power.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes Bought it for my CVA Accura muzzleloader. The best price anywhere on the Internet and in local stores. Has features found only on more expensive scopes. Looks really cool too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex scope Purchased scope on line and received product quickly. Very happy with scope and price, better than local gun shop that failed to provide one when I asked to order one for me.
