Viper® PST Gen II 3-15x44 Riflescope

This updated favorite hands an unfair advantage to shooters who seek to keep the upper hand in every situation from close quarters to long-range shots. The illumination dial is cleanly integrated into the side focus adjustment knob for easy access and streamlined performance. The glass-etched reticle offers shooters highly functional, intuitive, and detailed hold points, yet remains uncluttered for optimal viewing and features 10 intensity levels with off positions between each setting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value The pst gen 2 3-15 ffp...this scope, for me, feels like I'm sitting behind something special. I love the reticle, especially the FFP feature. Illuminated, it feels great for dawn and dusk shooting. I haven't experienced any issue with it, mounted on a High end .30-06 it pairs up perfectly. Go check one out when you get a chance. I can't see anyone being disappointed with this scope. You will have to fix your shooting habits long before you have to upgrade your glass to be effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased! Once we got through the backorder, i was very pleased. It was well worth the wait! Now i am not a professional shooter, nor do i know all the ins and outs of glass. But i do know it adjusts well to my eye. It does not fatigue my eye like others do. Its very clear for my purposes. And i think it will serve my 6.5 Grendel well. The guys at Vortex are great! I support them 100% just as they support us veterans. I am local to Vortex and love stopping in at the shop. Customer service is amazing and hopefully ill never have to experience how great the VIP is!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really nice clarity and features but... While zeroing my brand new scope, after five rounds of 300WM, the parallax side focus died.

I just purchased a Remington 700 SPS Tactical AAC-SD. What set up do you recommend as far as rings/mounts? It will be primarily hunting and target shooting. Will the 3.5 x 14 x44 be a solid choice?

Asked by: none
This scope is a great choice for hunting and target shooting. I recommend a 1 piece picatinny rail from www.egwguns.com and a set of our 30 mm Precision Matched Rings in 0.87" height for your setup.

What ring height and style do you recommend with your Viper PST Gen II 3-15x44 FFP on a Ruger Precision Rifle? Also, would you recommend a 3x15x44 or the 6x24x50 for an all purpose gun.

Asked by: jonadam
For the Ruger Precision Rifle, we recommend a set of our Precision Matched Rings in 1.45" height. For a standard bolt rifle, a set of our Precision Matched Rings in 0.97" height will cover most situations if you are using a 1 piece picatinny rail.

I have purchased the Vortex Viper PST Gen II 3-15x44 MOA for my Sig 716 Patrol. What rings will be good for this setup? Also, do you think this is a good scope for an AR-10? Thanks!
Asked by: CMaib
This scope will work great on your rifle, you will want one of our Cantilever mounts like our Viper Extended Cantilever mount to get proper mounting height.
