Superb scope for the money

by JeremyP, from United States, NH Written on September 4, 2014
This is the second Viper PST 6-24x50 scope and 5th Vortex optic I own. The eye relief is excellent, the glass is very clear and it has excellent parallax and eye focus adjustment that allow you to bring the target into proper focus. The illuminated reticle really helps in low light conditions or when shooting against a dark target. You may not use it too often but when you need it, it's helpful. The adjustable brightness levels are outstanding too.

The turrets have a tactile feel with very positive clicks so there's no guessing. The zero reset is easy to do and the added feature of zero stop is easy to do and awesome in use. No more counting elevation clicks or having to remember where the hash line was to get back to zero. Now that I have this feature I could never go back to a scope without out it.

The scope's adjustments are also very accurate having tested this out with a box test and during a 1000 yard rifle course where we zeroed at 100 yards and then made adjustments for 300, 500, 750 and 1000 yards, returning to our 100 yard zero after shooting at each distance. At my next range session, it was right back to zero...Point of Aim = Point of Impact.

The best part about Vortex is the value and their warranty. I've never had to use it but their warranty is just about the best in the industry. This scope performs as well as or better than scopes costing a LOT more. You can't go wrong with the Viper PST 6-24x50....
Pros:
  • Illuminated reticle
  • Turret adjustments
  • Excellent warranty
  • Glass clarity
Cons:
  • I'd like to see flip up caps come standard
Best Used for:
  • Long range target, hunting & varminting
Would recommend: Yes

Best scope for $$

by Dave, from United States, FL Written on September 1, 2014
Highly recommend!! Was able to zero my rifle in a matter of minutes. Clear glass, Click and visual adjustments are very precise and pronounced. Focus turret on left side is a definite plus. Best buy for your buck....

Review Of Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50mm Riflescope

by Shannon Hirsch, from United States, WA Written on August 29, 2014
This is a great scope and a good value for the money. I have many different scopes and this became my favorite as soon as I stuck in on a rifle. Optics are clear, markings and controls are very nice (except the power ring is too stiff)and the MOA graduated reticle is well done. It is also of reasonable size and weight in a 6 to 24X. I have a couple of Bushnell Elite 6500s in the 4.5 to 30X, a Leupold VX-6 in the 3 to 18X, a couple of Alpens and an Osprey in 6 to 24X. While they all work fine and cost in a range from less than half to twice as much as the Viper, if I had to use just one scope I would take the Viper over the others....

vortex pst 6-24x50

by dan, from United States, NC Written on August 8, 2014
Great scope and super clarity. Scopes were on sale at Optics Planet and super buy. Let friends look thru scope and they were impressed. I own leupold and zeiss and this scope is as good at a much lower price. Try a vortex pst and you won't be disappointed....

Great Mid Range 300-600 yd Scope

by OOB, from United States, ME Written on July 30, 2014
I've been shooting a couple of years Mid-Range with a fixed 36X scope and was looking for a step up and something I could deal with mirage a little better and this scope with the side parallax adjustment and the zero stop made this a perfect choice. I'm very impressed with the rugged construction, consistent tracking and the clarity. While I continue to work on my skills this is an excellent mid priced, but very high quality scope that gets the job done. Finally the lighted reticle with heavy overcast or on rainy days is a big plus. I may even use it for some night coyote hunting this winter under the full moons....
Pros:
  • Clarity
  • Side parallax adjustment
  • Tracking
  • Lighted reticle
Cons:
  • None
Best Used for:
  • Mid-Range Competition
  • Low light varmint hunting
Would recommend: Yes

Matches up to all high-end scopes!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, GA Written on August 4, 2013
Great scope for the money! Mounted on my Armalite AR-10 and am consistently hitting 700+ meters! Since I do not have a 20moa rail/scope mount, the scope tops out about 850-900 yards. But for the hobbyist long range shooter, this is more than enough scope to keep you hitting consistently!
Pros: Reliable, well made, accurate
Cons: none...

BEST BUY ITEM

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on May 23, 2013
My first experience with the Viper PST was great. I was looking at the Leupold LR, but the cost was nearly double. My son found the PST. I couldn't really tell the difference when comparing the two, so I took the plunge, saved enough, nearly, for a second scope and have never looked back. The reticles are fine enough for accurate shooting close in or at a distance. I have the SFP (Second Focal Plane) model so I use a ballistic calculator instead of trying to read distances by using the milling reticle ( the likely reason one reviewer couldn't get his scope to work consistently). I have never had the slightest variation in zero and the CRS Zero-stop works quite well, though I'd really like to see a full zero stop. I have this scope on two of my rifles and both perform superbly. I recently sent one of my PST outfitted guns in to Teludyne Tech to have some work done on it and they, too, were impressed with the clarity and quality of the build. Can't say enough good about this scope and will have a Vortex on any newly acquired weapon I procure in the future. A real winner.
Pros: Clear glass, repeatable accurate click adjustments, tough as nails, best warranty in the business... EVERYTHING
Cons: Don't own enough of them....
Would recommend: Yes
