Diamondback® 1.75-5x32 Riflescope

The Diamondback® — loaded with features! First, the solid one-piece aircraft-grade aluminum alloy construction makes the Diamondback riflescope virtually indestructible and highly resistant to magnum recoil. Argon purging puts waterproof and fogproof performance on the agenda, and advanced fully multi-coated optics raise an eyebrow when crystal clear, tack-sharp images appear in the crosshairs. Look for all this and more in a riflescope you'd expect to cost quite a bit more-but doesn't. We can live with that.

  • 1.75-5x32 riflescope is ideal for big game, brush, muzzleloader, turkey, slug shotgun, and dangerous game applications.
  • V-Plex reticle is the single best all-purpose hunting reticle intended for a wide variety of hunting applications.

Subtension detail for the Diamondback 1.75-5x32 V-Plex Reticle. >

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cold Range discussion who has the best scope Inevitably during cold range breaks the guys eventually get around to bragging about their optics and often who has the most expensive scopes and therefore the best accuracy. I often was getting the " Try mine I paid a gazillion dollars for it so it is a real tack driver". Jeez, these guys crack me up. I am a firm believer in spending the least amount of $ necessary to get the job done. I will put my Vortex Optics DBK-08-BDC Diamondback 1.75-5x32 Riflescope - Dead-Hold BDC Reticle up against much of the high dollar stuff that's out there. I let a few of the guys try my rifle and without fail they just assume its a thousand dollar rig. In reality it is just the right scope for the job at hand. It is absolutely great for target shooting up to 200 yards (longest range near me).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's hard to beat a Vortex! I work behind the gun counter at a major outfitter retail store. We sell Vortex scopes 5 to 1 compared to all other brands combined. This 1.75-5 X 32 Diamondback scope in my opinion is the perfect glass for any AR style platform. It's lightweight at 12.8 oz and only 10.2" length make it compact and perfect for close and medium distance accuracy. I have it on my Ar-15's and mini 14's, and I do recommend it to everyone with complete confidence!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bang for the buck! I recently purchased this scope after deciding to move from a red dot to a magnified optic on my AR15. I was not interested in a scope the size of the rifle or capable of spotting distant planets, a 1.75-5 power was precisely what I needed. The build quality and attention to detail are outstanding, the glass is clear and the reticle crisp. Sight in was a standard affair and I feel the scope has allowed my rifle’s accuracy to be realized. I am still in awe that this level of quality and performance came so affordably! Thank you Vortex

Rated 2 out of 5 by from fish eye I have had this scope over a year now, it is very distorted around the edges throughout the magnification range but is worse at low end, it is like looking through a fisheye camera lense, I sent a SPARC dot scope back a few months ago because of a halo in the tube and was told nothing was wrong, I would expect the same answer on this scope.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good scope for my CVA Accura V2 Bench shooting out to 150 yds. works well. Also 2 deer @ 75 & 100 yds. What more do you want? I'm now looking for a new Vortex for my .308.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best light scope this scope is light and small , excellent all around . clear . better then my other 1-4 scopes
Date published: 2017-10-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favourite Scope I own. I own 5 vortex scopes at this point and this is by far my favourite. I hunt in dense forest and the low magnification, clarity and weight make this amazing for the hunting I do. I liked it so much that I bought one for my brother and dad. My only gripe is the BDC reticle is useless to me because of how close the hashes are to each other. At the time the BDC was my only option but I see they make a Duplex as well that would fit me better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deer Killers Down!!! 95% of my predator hunting is done at night. That being said, this Diamondback sits atop one of my AR's. the low magnification is perfect for when wiley sneeks in on me and i have to get fast acquisition of my target aka Wile E. Coyote. i have got dogs from 35 yards out to 175 at night. I have also rang steel at 225 yards with this. best bang for the buck hands down..

Would this scope be able to take the ongoing recoil of a Marlin 45-70? If not, what would you recommend for the 45-70?

Asked by: Donald
Yes, the Diamondback 1.75-5x32 would handle the recoil of your rifle.

Would this work on a Slug Gun (Savage 212 bolt action shotgun)? Is the eye relief listed the max or min (depending on magnification)?

Asked by: turkeydeer
That would work for that application. That's the maximum eye relief. If you feel that won't be enough I would check out our Crossfire II series in the 2-7 or the 1-4.

I have a Mossberg Patriot chambered in 375 ruger will it handle the recoil and what rings and mounts do you recomend

Asked by: willie webb
The Diamondback would handle the recoil, however it has a fairly short eye relief so that is something you may want to consider. If you stick with that scope a set of our 1 inch Precision Matched Rings would work well.

Will the Vortex 1.75-5 handle a 12ga. Remington Super Slugger with 3" sabot?

Asked by: Glenn
Yes, it will handle the recoil of your shotgun. Be sure to mount it in a good quality set of rings at 15-18 inch pounds with no Loctite.
Answered by: Mike at Vortex Optics
Date published: 2017-10-26

will this scope hold up to 30-06 caliber bolt action rifle recoil?

Asked by: spike
The Diamondback 1.75-5x32 will handle the recoil of a .30-06 rifle as long as it is mounted in a good quality set of rings at 15-18 inch pounds with no Loctite.

Asked by: DanGrawe

What mount / rings would you recommend for a flat top AR with an offset iron sight near charging handle?  1/2 inch riser 3-4 inches in length, a cantilever mount (that doesn't cost to much)  Or will rings be high enough?

Asked by: Brian
I would go with our Sport Cantilever 1 inch mount for your setup.

What is the dimension from the base of the tube to the top of both elevation and wind adjustments knobs?

Asked by: Steve93
From the bottom of the tube to the top of the turret caps is 1.98". If you are looking at the height from the top of the tube to the top of the turret cap it is 0.55".
