Vortex Optics Viper HS 4-16x44 30mm Tube Water Proof Scopes Product Info

Vortex Viper HS 4-16x44mm Rifle Scope is a dual-use scope made for tactical shooting and hunting. The Vortex Viper HS Scope series is an evolutionary upgade, with features like an optical system with a 4x zoom range to provide magnification versatility, and the Vortex MagView Bar, a fiber optics magnification indicator with a raised, rear-facing magnification reference guide for clear viewing in low light conditions. The Vortex Viper HS 4-16x44 Riflescope has an ultra-friendly eye box with increased eye relief that gets shooters on target quickly and easily—because shooting opportunities can be measured in fractions of seconds. Vortex has built this waterproof riflescope with an ultra-strong 30mm one-piece machined aluminum tube, maximized for durability with lenses locked in place with machine locking rings so they'll stay aligned through recoil and impact. The Vortex 4-16x44mm HS Viper Scope delivers increased windage and elevation travel for optimal adjustment. Superb optical clarity is assured by Vortex's XD glass and XR lens coatings, which work together provide this Vortex Rifle Scope with increased resolution, color fidelity, and light transmission. From the woods to the plains to the mountains, the Vortex Viper HS will get the job done right.

This Vortex Scope is available with the following reticle options:

  • Vortex V-Plex reticle - the single best, and most popular, all-purpose hunting reticle. Intended for a wide variety of hunting applications.
  • Vortex Dead-Hold BDC Reticle - Customized hashmark design helps eliminate guesswork on hold-over and windage corrections. Good for hunting and shooting at varying ranges where estimating hold-over is a concern.
