Vortex DBK-04-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.

The Vortex 4-12x40 Diamondback 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, and the entire assembly is then purged with argon gas for flawless all-weather performance.

Long-range target acquisition can be difficult, and having 4-12x magnification on tap will help get the job done in most cases. Twilight hunters will appreciate the highly efficient 40mm objective when the sun gets close to the horizon.

This Diamondback scope is configured with a 1.0" tube, an adjustable objective, 1/4 MOA adjustments with 66 MOA of travel, low-profile turrets, a Dead-Hold BDC reticle, and a matte black finish.

A mounting base and rings are used to attach a riflescope to a firearm. A comfortable sight picture is contingent upon the height of the rings. A comfortable cheek-weld is the result of properly positioning the scope over the receiver. Mounting the scope close to the receiver is preferable, yet scopes with larger objectives need higher rings so the front bell can clear the barrel. It should be noted that in many mounting applications, a professional gunsmith's skills will be needed for proper installation.

1.0" One-piece aluminum main tube construction
Parallax correction is factory preset at 100 yd
1/4 MOA W&E correction with 66 MOA of adjustment
Fast focus eyepiece for rapid target acquisition
Multi-layer XR coatings deliver edge-to-edge clarity
Unity-pressure argon purging protects against the elements at any elevation
Precision-Glide erector system provides exceptional resistance to stress cracking, temperature change, corrosion, and friction-induced wear.
Dead-Hold BDC Reticle in the Second Focal Plane
The Dead-Hold BDC reticle features four thin posts and cross hairs. The larger gate is designed to accommodate hold over points upon the 6 o'clock stadia.
Second focal plane (non-magnifying) placement of the reticle maintains its size throughout the magnification range.

    Vortex DBK-04-BDC reviews

    4-12x40 Diamondback Riflescope (Matte Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 87.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope, Great Warranty You can't beat the peace of mind that comes with a warranty and service like that provided by Vortex. The clarity was good, but it is definitely a hunting scope. The crosshairs are big and easy to see in low light, and parallax can be a problem for a target shooter or long-range hunter without an AO. (Not a problem for the big game hunter shooting at normal hunting ranges.) Clicks are smooth, distinct and accurate. Still shot sub MOA with my 30-06 @ 100 yds even at 12X. Knowing what I know now, this being my first Vortex, I'd still buy it for the old '06, and would recommend it to my friends.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough, reliable, affordable I had been a dedicated Simmons man for near 25 years. Needing a new scope for a newly acquired .30-06 I looked through a lot of glass. I settled on the Diamondback BDC for practicality and pricing. I now have 3 and have never regretted it. From hunts in Michigan, Wisconsin, Texas, Wyoming and Colorado they have always maintained zero even after a 1200 mile truck ride, a 4 mile pack horse trek and a week of temperature fluctuations from 50 degrees to 15 degrees. My grandsons will get my rifles and it's good to know that IF anything goes wrong, the unmatched Vortex warranty will have them covered. Should I need another scope I may try the Tactical version.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear glass, pinpoint accuracy! I bought this scope for my Savage 110 30-06, and had it properly mounted within minutes. I cannot tell you how excited I was to build my confidence with my new hunting setup. the initial sight in was quick and to the point, and within 5 shots I was hitting targets out at 400 yards. Not much later several beginner shooters that have never shot a high caliber rifle were hitting targets out to 200 yards without to much difficulty. this setup gives me the confidence to take the shot. unfortunately I didn't get to tag out on a deer this past year but have high hopes for the coming season. You wont regret buying this product.
    Date published: 2018-03-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awsome pricing with freebies! I haven't mounted the scope yet but optics are crystal clear. Be aware that the scope relief is fairly short at only 3.1-3.4 inches. Manufacturer support is excellent. I purchased exact item from another sporting goods store for same price (open box item) but this purchase from B&H Photo came with free $25 gift card and shooting glasses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great optics My third diamondback love the optics and warranty
    Date published: 2017-08-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built like a Hammer Bought this scope for 5.5lb deer rifle. Unboxed it, mounted it, dialed in at 200yds and smacked targets with more boxes of ammo than I had planned. Not because it took long to zero, but because it held MOA for some serious range time. Adjustments are crisp, zero lock flawless. Hammered a hog at 70, 2 does at 225, and countless coyotes from various ranges in just the first year I’ve had this scope setup. Spends its life bouncing around in the pickup, atv, and thrown on my back. This scope is not babied. Never once lost zero or my confidence in accuracy with this clear glass. Vortex LRBC proves accurate as well for holdover points. Bulletproof, clear and affordable. Would love another for my other rifle

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope... Super clear, crisp imagery. Easy to focus eyepiece, zoom works well. Turret adjustment is very accurate, holds zero well. Overall a fantastic scope for the $$$. You can't go wrong on this purchase.
