The one-piece 30mm tube, precision-machined from a single solid block of aircraft-grade 6061-T6 aluminum, offers ample windage and elevation adjustment. Born from an intimate understanding of riflescope design, forward-thinking engineering, and open ears to a market incredibly vocal about what it wants in a riflescope, the Viper PST series delivers the performance and features tactical shooters demand at an economical price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blown Away I bought this about 5 months ago and just got all my rifle stuff done. Using it on a Tika T3 Tac 308 with a Gemtech suppressor and could not believe how well this scope worked. Starting with the great tutorial given on there web site on install to use. Shot 6 rounds to zero at 100 yards after bore sighting. Then I used the MRAD FFP BDC to get my hold over at 300 yards and put all rounds within 6 inches. That was good for me, I am not a professional shooter by no means. This is in 1 day of shooting and some time doing research on shooting. Also just bought 1-4 cant wait to use on AR. Will give review once I shoot. Thanks for a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best riflescopes I have ever owned. This past hunting season was my third year using my Viper PST. Every time I look through the scope it validates the reason I choose Vortex for all my optics. The versatility and functionality is all that I need for taking the types of shots I encounter in the field. Long to short range this scope does it all. Holds up in any weather condition. Now I have vortex on 3 other rifles, Razor HD spotting scope, and the whole family carries Vortex binos. The cost and quality of each product is second to none in my opinion. I will be a lifetime supporter of any Vortex product line. Customer service is excellent and extremely knowledgeable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product and customer service hands down So I'm new to long range shooting and I wanted a scope that would deliver so I looked around and decided on vortex pst ffp. Got the scope and was amazed how clear it was but when I went to mount it I got ahead of myself misread the torqe specs and crushed the tube. But with vortex vip warranty it was covered I was shocked I thought for sure I was hit on a 1000 dollar scope but after talking to Tim Austin in customer service i had my new scope on my savage in a week and Tim was great he told me if I had any questions about long range shooting to give him a call and he would be more than happy to help wow what customer service does thanks a lot Tim

Rated 5 out of 5 by from User Friendly 5.0 My agency purchased this scope about a month ago, I had precious little time to learn it before being sent to sniper school. With the little time that I had, I was able to learn it inside and out. All of the turrets and knobs are easy to use with a crisp click that can't be mistaken. The rifle and scope were punished by rain, fog, terrain, dust, and all in the same 7 days. Customer service was epic!!! Our agency ordered the scope, and was told it would take a few months to build. After we told them how soon we needed it, they quickly sent us an email saying that the scope had been shipped. Not to mention the discount for LE, and the free t shirts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Lense Clarity I bought this scope last year to be paired up with my .300 WSM. I had it delivered all the way to Hawaii, where I was currently living at the time. A few friends and I had drawn lottery tickets to hunt Axis deer on the island of Lanai in Hawaii. After setting the scope by myself, I was ready for the hunt. It's w good thing I had the 24X magnification of the Viper PST because while my buddies were glassing deer at 500-800 yards with their binoculars, I was able to use my Vortex rifle scope. I ended up harvesting my first Axis deer on a 200 yard shot. It was an amazing experience. I'm really glad that I invested in great Optics to take a once in a lifetime shot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic scope I mounted this scope on a custom built AR10 in 6.5mm CM. I have been shooting 200-600yards with this rifle and scope while I am learning precision / distance shooting This scope has very positive clicks when adjusting elevation and windage, has zero stop capability and tracks incredibly accurately. I had my rifle zero'd in 3 shots with this scope. It has plenty of elevation adjustment for distance shooting and hold overs are simple with the EBR-2C reticle. I wanted this scope so much that I waited 6-7 weeks for it while backordered and I am not disappointed. The glass is exceptionally clear with little or no distortion at max power

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO COOL!!! I picked out this scope before I bought the rifle for it. I did so based on research and others reviews and articles and while I never handled it prior this is by far the best piece of glass I have now it's also the best I've used ever! It was crazy to me when I first got it the night and day difference from other rifle scopes I'd used. Add to that the illuminated reticle (mostly just for giggles in my case lol) I was needless to say extremely pleased with my purchase. Now I have a rifle for it ( 700sps tact aac sd) and have zeroed it and had some fun target shooting I'm itching for deer season and some opportunities to stretch it out to 500yds plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing in every way. Chose vortex at first due to the warranty and immediately became a lifetime customer once I mounted my 6-24x50 viper PST FFP and shot it. The design is simply amazing. Clean and well machined. The turrets are easy to read, clicks are distinct and easy to count. Setting the zero stop is very easy. The quality of the glass is amazing, at first light, last light or bright hot days it's as clear as can be. Adjust the parallax and your target is crisp and clear at any range. My first hunt with my new rifle and Vortex PST I got a buck at 450 yards!! If you are considering this scope or any Vortex product you wont be disappointed.

I just purchased a Viper PST 6-24x 50 First Focal Point with an EBR-23C MOA Reticle. I am looking for a quick release mount that will work with both my Tikka T3 Tac Heavy, and my FNAR Heavy semi-auto both chambered in 308. Is this possible, or do I need 2

Asked by: John
Thanks for the question! You can certainly try the quick release mount on both, it should work although you may need to get some sort of cheek riser if you don't have an adjustable cheek weld built in the stock.

I have a Viper PST 6-24x50 that I want to mount to a DPMS AP4. It has a Pic rail with an A2 sight. Is there a mount that will allow me to “see” over the front sight or must I get a lower gas block?

Asked by: BellringeR87
You're best bet is to go with a low profile gas block and get rid of the A2 sight as you're likely going to see some "ghosting" of the A2 sight otherwise.

What is the Ranging Magnification that the PST MOA FFP 6-24X50 calibrated for?

Asked by: Double.D
With a first focal plane optic you can be on any magnification and use it for ranging purposes. If you have the second focal plane version, the reticle subtensions are accurate at 24x.
