Rated 5 out of 5 by El Cucuy Amazing Scope
While hanging out in Iraq, I decided when I got home I wanted to build my first 1,000 yard gun. Bought a .300 win mag and the search for the perfect scope began. Wasnt impressed with the other big names quality for my limited budget. I have always been a big fan of Vortex binos, so I started checking out thier scopes. Found the PST, a high end-high power scope for under a grand. Holy cow! The scope was clear and a perfect match for my rifle. EASY to zero, best eye relief and even simplified shooting distances! At first I thought the reticle was a little busy, but after getting familiar with all aspects of it, I am dead on! Took a Colorado Bull and cow in 2012 with it AND my vortex binos! I am a hard western hunter and demand excellence in my equipment, this scope gives me that on an affordable budget. I promise those elk were not criticizing my scope! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by AHines87 My research = Vortex Purchase
It was time to tame my R700 5R .308 and I really wanted to stretch it out to 1000yds. I did tons of research on clarity vs. price and would always come up with Shmidt and Bender, US optics, and Nightforce, but being on a budget, I wouldn't afford these scopes any time soon. Vortex Optics was mentioned to me and I happened to see one at my local sporting goods place. I looked at it and compared a nightforce, but really couldn't tell many differences for what my uses would be. After tinkering with the idea that I found what may be the right scope, I chose Vortex. The value sold me, but even more so was the VIP warranty. No company that is absolutely sure of their product would back it like that. The clarity is top notch, illuminated reticle, finish and zero stop feature is awesome. It has held up under the constant pounding of my .308 when bench rest shooting and holds zero without issues. Without a doubt, I'm a vortex fan for life. If you want a scope that plays like the big boys, but doesn't cost like one, look no further than the Viper PST line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RobDW A fantastic rifle scope
Until now I have always bought European scopes (I own Schmidt & Bender, Zeiss and Swarovski), however my Vortex Viper 4-24x50 FFP scope has convinced me of the quality of Vortex optics. The scope is brilliantly clear, extremely well made/finished and with excellent mechanics.
I have since bought a Diamondback 4-12x40AO and a Diamondback 20-60x80 spotting scope.
Buy Vortex with extreme confidence, I certainly will.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mustang69 Must Have for any AR
After looking thru many scopes I decided on the Viper PST with the MOA reticle for my 300BLK SBR. The glass is clear and the reticle is in my opinion one of the best I have looked thru. I did not want a BDC reticle and preferred to know my holdovers with the moa reticle. On 1x magnification the scope offers a quick target reference for both eyes open shooting the magnification comes in nice when taking 100yd shots. This thing is built like a tank solid don't anticipate needing to use the warranty but it's nice to know its there if needed. If I had one complaint I wish it had 6x magnification but still believe it to be the best 1-4x scope on the market.
