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 Amazing So far I love this scope. This replaced my viper pst 2.5-10x44 gen 1. Loved that scope also, but upgraded to the gen 2 for the zero stop. Also love the turret size and where they placed the illumination knob. All in all I view is to be a solid upgrade. Sighting in was a different process than what I was use to. You cant go wrong with vortex. amazing products and they offer you an amazing warranty that nightforce and bigger companies don't offer. Thanks vortex!

Looking at purchasing Vortex Viper PST Gen 2 3-15x44 for my FN Scar 17s and was unsure which mount to purchase due to recoil impulse of the Scar. Could you provide any suggestions? Thanks.

Is it possible to get the Viper PST gen 2  3-15 x 44 in the first focal plane, with the EBR-4 (MOA) reticle? This reticle is not on your regular product list in FFP. 

Asked by: Jeff
At this time the EBR-4 reticle is only available in second focal plane.

Is the Viper PST Gen II 3-15x44 a side focus scope? It says it focuses from 20yds to infinity but I can't find where it specifically states side focus in the description. The photos make it look like a side focus.
Asked by: Gastone
Yes, the Gen II Viper PST's have a side parallax adjustment.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I purchased a pst gen2 3-15x44 2nd FP. I did a lot of research to find the best quality for the best value. Most of Vortex reviews are good! Receiving the box I noticed it was coming apart at the seams as if it were pre opened/re-packed? I professionally mounted my scope in perfect alignment with the bore axis and insuring proper torque on the vortex viper rings. I put the PST on a new Tikka CTR T3X 6.5..Sighting it in it shipped almost all the way up in elevation and clear to the zero in wind age. When trying to adjust the turrets, they had come completely unscrewed with no tactical click, so after tightening them just enough to get clicks I took a few shots at 25 yards just to see where I was on paper. The turrets wouldn't move/adjust to even hit the paper they were doing nothing...I believe I was sent a return or refurbished scope that had obviously not been accounted for or quality control was seriously lacking. I sent the PST back, and decided to try the Viper HSLR instead. The HSLR came and the fiber optic turret markers were cracked/bubbled and had black paint on them and the one on the elevation was sticking out? after all the time in shipping, returning, waiting for the HSLR and to see that right out of the box was upsetting to say the least. Having spare fiber optic threads from Dawson Precision I fixed it myself, but honestly wanted to send it back just because spending 0-00 for a scope should have way more customer service and quality control on products that are selling as brand new and seem to me to be less than that...I also purchased another vortex product I'm sending back due to working inconsistently. This is by no means a vortex bashing session, as a matter of fact I can't believe the experience I've had compared to the typical vortex review...and three products that are not acceptable for release to the consumer "I got"....any way sorry for the negative, but lacking in true quality will only push people else where!
