The Vortex Viper PST – More Bang for the Buck


The Vortex Viper Precision Shooting Tactical (PST) scope has intuitive ease of operation because it was designed and built by shooters to fit the needs of hunters, police, and the military.

Optical Properties:

The eXtra-low Dispersal (XD) glass used in the lenses results in greater clarity, sharper resolution, and better “true to life” color and contrast. The anti-reflective multi-coating on the lenses results in improved light transmission, with the final ultra-hard, ArmorTek coating making the exterior lenses scratch-resistant.

The scope has a first focal plane illuminated glass-etched reticle. Its placement insures that the reticle increases in size along with the magnification used, remaining in proportion with the size of the target regardless of magnification.

The fast-focus eyepiece insures that focusing is accomplished in seconds.

Two layers of glass encase the illuminated, red-dot, etched reticle, providing extreme durability during rough handling.

The PST comes with an extra-large 50 mm objective lens which provides more light transmission for quicker target acquisition on those long-distance shots, even in low-light conditions.

The side focus adjustment knob, with integrated illumination dial, provides for intuitive ease of operation with 10 intensity levels, complete with off positions between each setting accommodating light conditions from the dark of night to the bright noonday sun.

The 4-inch eye relief provides a safety factor when using magnum loads.



The radius bar fiber optic control knob provides visual, tactile, and auditory points of reference, with each “click” seen, heard, and felt. The maximum elevation and windage adjustments of 220 MOA are adjustable, by hand, in 1/2 MOA clicks.

The Rapid Zero Return (RZR) zero stop prevents the scope from moving below the pre-set zero. Once you set the reticle for range, it can be quickly reset to this point. Numerous “how-to” online videos help simplify learning the operation of the RZR Zero Stop.


Physical Properties:

The PST is available in 7 different configurations, making it extremely versatile. Check it out at Vortex itsel for on specialized hunting shops like Adventurefootstep.com.

The single-piece 30mm tube, built of aircraft-grade aluminum, lends both strength and durability to the Viper PST. Argon gas purging, followed by the installation of O-ring seals, insure that the scope remains fog proof, waterproof, and free from the intrusion of any dust, debris, or moisture, even in the midst of violent recoil, impact, or temperature extremes.

The hard, anodized, low-glare finish hides the position of the shooter by eliminating the “shine” of reflected sunlight.



The Vortex VIP (Very Important Promise) warranty states that they will “repair or replace your Vortex product in the event it becomes damaged or defective—at no charge to you.”

The unlimited, unconditional lifetime warranty is fully transferable. No matter how the product was damaged, Vortex will repair or replace it
