Viper® PST Gen II 3-15x44 Riflescope

This updated favorite hands an unfair advantage to shooters who seek to keep the upper hand in every situation from close quarters to long-range shots. The illumination dial is cleanly integrated into the side focus adjustment knob for easy access and streamlined performance. The glass-etched reticle offers shooters highly functional, intuitive, and detailed hold points, yet remains uncluttered for optimal viewing and features 10 intensity levels with off positions between each setting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing So far I love this scope. This replaced my viper pst 2.5-10x44 gen 1. Loved that scope also, but upgraded to the gen 2 for the zero stop. Also love the turret size and where they placed the illumination knob. All in all I view is to be a solid upgrade. Sighting in was a different process than what I was use to. You cant go wrong with vortex. amazing products and they offer you an amazing warranty that nightforce and bigger companies don't offer. Thanks vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing value Bought this for long range target and hunting. Put it on my 308 and couldn't be happier! Reticle is easy to use and the image is clear as day. Took me a bit to figure out the zero stop but the manual made things easy. Definitely buying more from vortex in the future!

What happens when the battery is dead in a Vortex illuminated reticle scope? Does the reticle just disappear, or is it just not illuminated?

Asked by: ajw4
The reticle will always be visible, when the illumination is off it will appear black like a standard reticle.

What size (height) scope rings should I use for the Viper PST Gen II 3-15x44 on a Ruger Precision rifle with a 20 MOA rail. I want the lowest rings that will work. Also, would you recommend the 1 piece cantilever rings or 2 vortex precision rings?  

Asked by: Daddydogpt
For your Ruger Precision Rifle you will want either the 1.45" Precision Matched Rings or one of our cantilever mounts, both setups would give you the proper mounting height.

Is it possible to get the Viper PST gen 2  3-15 x 44 in the first focal plane, with the EBR-4 (MOA) reticle? This reticle is not on your regular product list in FFP. 

Asked by: Jeff
At this time the EBR-4 reticle is only available in second focal plane.
