Viper® PST™ 6-24x50 Riflescope

The Viper PST (Precision Shooting Tactical) riflescope boasts features associated with top-tier riflescopes, yet comes in at a street price under the $1,000 mark. Matching reticle and turret measurements allow accurate, fast dialing of shots. The one-piece 30mm tube, precision-machined from a single solid block of aircraft-grade 6061-T6 aluminum, offers ample windage and elevation adjustment. Born from an intimate understanding of riflescope design, forward-thinking engineering, and open ears to a market incredibly vocal about what it wants in a riflescope, the Viper PST series delivers the performance and features tactical shooters demand at an economical price.

Note
Also available with a first (FFP) focal plane reticle—an important option for many precision shooters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing clarity... I've mounted this optic to my Savage 10P-SR and have found perfection... I used a competitor's glass for a few months, and found that at 500+ yards, it got to be more than a task to focus on the target while keeping the reticle sharp. There's zero effort with my Vortex. From first putting bullet to paper at 25-yards, to preliminary zero at 100, the eye's are happy. Stretching the weapon's legs out to 500 and back to zero is simple with the Vortex Zero Stop setup. For the money, you're getting an excellent piece of glass and excellent customer support and lifetime warranty. What's more to add? I guarantee you'll never regret your purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope even better value Being a Scout Sniper instructor I know the importance of quality and reliable gear. That is why I chose to take my Kimber rifle topped with a Vortex scope to Montana in the fall of 2016 for an Elk and Mule deer hunt. I was successful in taking a Mule deer from a very close range, 33yds to be exact. The test came for my Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 when I was faced with an elk at 1150yds. I dialed the dope on the scope and fired the shot, the elk didn't move. I had miss ranged the elk after getting my correction from the EBR-1 reticle I quickly took another shot and down went the elk. I know had I not had the Viper PST 6-24x50 I would not have made the shot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again Purchased this for my first long range optic and have been happy for the price point. I like the clarity of optics, all the options it has for the price is great. The turrets feel very positive on the indents. What I don't like is the elevation turret after about 5 mils doesn't line up quite right with the markings leading to confusion about where the adjustment is. Also I wish it had a little more elevation adjustment. Overall this is a good entry level long range optic and I would purchase again and recommend it to someone who needed such an optic. My next one will most likely be a Razor but this one will go on another rifle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Three PST's and counting! I've got three precision rifles and that are all fantastic shooters thanks to Vortex. The most important aspect of any precision rifle is the optic my opinion. For optics I won't run anything by the Vortex Viper PST in 6-24x50. Fantastic clarity, great illumination, awesome zero reset function all backed by Vortex's bulletproof double lifetime warranty. My range consists of 680 yard, 880 yard and 1285 yard metal gongs. Vortex makes these distances achievable through the great product they build. I've yet to find a weak point in their optic and look forward to many years and many rounds to come. Will buy for each new rifle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding benchrest optic I've had this optic for almost two years now. I had it on a burris pepr unimount and upgraded it to a badger medium unimount. I've run this scope through most light conditions from midday, to twilight, to moonlight. For the money, this thing has some of the best light gathering of any scope i've run. The glass is quite clear. The paralax adjustment is a must have and the turret zero stop works well enough. I'd reccomend getting at least a 20MOA base to maximize the internal adjustment of this scope. For the money, this is one of the best and most feature packed, warrantied scopes on the market. With the VIP warranty this thing has, you really cant go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope I bought this scope in April of 2013 (almost 4 years ago). It's fantastic! Great image quality, and excellent zoom. The reticle is nice too. I use it for prairie dog shooting a couple of times a year, where I am looking through it all day long. It does great, (no eye fatigue!) and let's me get a good look at the varmints from quite a ways out. Two minor issues I have: 1. It is hard to tell when the switch for the lighted reticle is off. I have burnt through many batteries by leaving it on accidentally. 2. I bought flip caps from Vortex for the front and rear. The front flip cap works great. The rear flip cap is too loose and the whole things comes off before it will flip up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best mid range affordable scope you can buy If you care about your hunting and shooting success you'll choose Vortex optics. This scope mounted on my 300 Win. Mag Remington 700 is the ultimate elk whacking machine. The PST is more than capable of out performing the range of the rifle. Targets are clear from close range all the way out to 2000 yards and beyond. The scope allows for low light operations and is enhanced by the illuminated reticle with multiple brightness levels and MOA or MRAD reticles are perfect for hold overs and windage adjustments. Vortex also beats the competition with their speed dial turrets enabling the shooter to dial quick come ups! Paired with the Vortex Lifetime Warranty this product is impossible to beat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I trust my hunt to vortex I bought this for a 7mm08 I built for my son two years ago I liked the gun when we were getting everything together but I fell in love with it once I put the scope on this is one serious piece of hardware. I switched to vortex after I had an Elk hunt in Fish lake Utah ruined by an inferior scope that literally just fell apart. I've never had a scope of this quality before the crosshairs are so fine even at maximum magnification it's almost like looking at a work of art, the crosshairs also light up red for the added benefit of a near dark shot.
