Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope in a small package This is the second vortex scope that I have bought for my Ar-15, the first being the 4-16 viper PST. I love both of them, but I bought this one to reduce the weight on my rifle by a little bit. For only being a 2.5-10 power you can sure shoot out really far with this scope. In the last couple months I've been able to shoot out to 400 and 500 yards with this scope and get really nice groups at that range. Also if you know how to use your first focal scopes you can range find with them and it's pretty accurate too! This scope is probably my most favorite scope I have ever bought and really recommend it to anyone who wants a great product to put onto their rifle setup!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing product. very happy. i recently purchased a Viper pst 2.5-10x, absolutely love it. currently have it on top of my heavily built ruger 10/22, the fit, finish, and build quality are amazing, the clarity of the glass, and the adjust ability are phenomenal. i also have a Viper PST 1-4x that is currently on top of my heavily built 300blackout ar15, again an amazing piece of optic. I've been a big fan and supporter since Vortex released its first products years ago. never once had to use the warranty, although this is what drew me to Vortex optics in the first place. Keep it up guys! (ps, please bring back the 2x pistol scope!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great scope I bought a new AR-10 and decided this was the focal range I wanted. When I went to buy the scope the shop was out of the second focal plane option, and the salesman talked me into this one. It is a great scope, clear, tough, and good looking. I wish I had kept to my original plan and gotten the second focal plane version, only because of the cost increase and that at the low end I can't see the mil dots well enough to use them. Besides, if you are shooting that far out, you are going to zoom in. But that is my preference, the scope works exactly as advertised, and it is extremely nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great option for people on a budget This is the scope that got me hooked on Vortex products. I bought it on sale from a large online seller... and I couldnt have been happier. Dollar for dollar you arent going to get a better quality housing or glass this clear. It has great eye relief and sight picture. The only issue anyone might have is that the cross hairs thin out a little on full zoom.... but if your eyesight is okay to good, you will be fine. the shim/return to zero setup is really nice option at this price point too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect balance between profile and power! I love my 2.5-10x Viper PST scope because it contains a 4x magnification in a pretty small package! I'm amazed at how well this scope works on my Remington 700! It's perfect for deer hunting and doesn't add too much weight or bulk to my rifle. I also love the various illuminated reticle setting that allow me to adjust the reticle's visibility according to the lighting in my environment. It's perfect for low-light situations as well as a bright mid-day sun. You can't go wrong with the Viper PST series and I think the 2.5-10x magnification is the perfect balance between profile and power!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SPR Perfection? This is a great scope for a SPR or Mk12 build. The glass is definitely clear enough to push past 800 meters. The 2.5 to 10 power works well for close work to extended ranges for an AR platform. This is one of a very few first focal plane reticle scopes in this price range that has good glass and turret tracking, and the illuminated reticle is a huge plus. The markings and fiber optic indicators on the dials and magnification ring are highly visible and easy to use. Overall, this is a great scope with the only potential drawbacks being the fast focus eye piece if you prefer a locking one or the zero stop system if you prefer a different system. Both of the features do work well, but I understand if some people are used to or prefer different systems.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buy a nightforce Bought this 3 weeks ago a cabelas, looked great in the store, after I got home I realized that the reticle jumped up and to the left when changing mag range, come on 900 dollar scope, how about some quality control vortex, very disappointed, could have bought a nightforce she for the same price

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great features, but lacking in execution i've had the entire PST lineup in MRAD, really hoping for a winner. but sadly i think with the feature package you get, quality suffers. i've had to send back every PST i've had for one reason or another, except this one. which i sold as soon as i received it. the glass was great, turrets felt good, but it felt cheap. the would shift badly if you touched the eyepiece, and the magnification ring had a ton of "wiggle" and TIGHT. it just felt cheap. i bought 2 at the same time, and received them at the same time. the 2 had to have been made in different factories. both had their different issues but seemed close to equal in quality. at a street price of 0, i consider it overpriced. i took a video of it, and would be happy to pass it along. i did a "side x side" with 2 other very comparable scopes. i've given the PST a fair shake, but wouldn't buy another. i know that vortex would have taken care of it, i'm not slamming the company, but good customer service and warranty, don't make up for quality.

I have been looking at this scope for awhile. The prices have come down in some shops. I am a little unsure of the benefits of a 32mm objective lens diameter. Can you explain this for me. 

Asked by: R. Johnson
The smaller objective lens is lighter weight and gives the scope a smaller profile. Give us a call at 800-426-0048 ext 5 to discuss this further.

Asked by: keith
Unfortunately we do not have a custom shop with the capability of reducing the parallax on this scope to 10 yards.
