Viper® PST Gen II 5-25x50 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 Total Package This optic is feature rich! I have a G1 Razor, and the PSTG2 Includes the best, precise zero/zero stop I have used with the addiction of smaller profile turrets. The EBR-2C reticle is very useful for various types of shooting especially with the well thought-out illumination. This optic also focuses down to 25 yds which is important to the hunter, competition, and tactical shooter. If you are going to venture into this price range, the VIP warranty brings a peace of mind. The only recommendation I could make would be to include a factory throw lever, however the magnification ring is very smooth. I believe this is the best optic (feature/price) currently available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Viper PSTG2 5-25x50mm FFP MRAD Purchased the PSTG2 5-25x50mm FFP MRAD in April and after a long awaited backorder time it finally arrived. I mounted it to my .308 Ruger Precision Rifle, sighted it in, and verified my DOPE. Result: dead center at 1000 yds. I could not be happier, the zero stops are a breeze to set, the glass is excellent, and I absolutely love the reticle design. This is taking the place of a borrowed PSTG1, and I am very much looking forward to taking it to a competition. I definitely recommend getting a set of the Vortex Defender caps for it, the cheaper caps from other manufacturers break very quickly. Great product Vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope for anything. Iv had this scope for a few months now, clarity is a vastly improved, relocating the illumination to inside the paralax knob was a nice sleek choice also clicks off between every increase or decrease in illumination is a added bonus, leaving it between 3 and 4 gives great low light or some added color against a black background. Scope tracks true, ebr-c2 reticle has a lot of information on it without being crowded and overwhelming. The booklet gives you all your MIL sizes for your hash marks and dots. It has a small open center so no issue with thick lines at 25 power covering dots. Sunshade comes with is a.mice

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing Better for the money The quality of this optic is as good if not better than scopes at twice the cost. From 100 to over 1000 yards, this is my go to optic. Tracking tests have been right on and the clarity is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5-25 Gen2 PST Got this scope for a .223 PRS trainer rifle and am very impressed. Scope is a vast improvement over the gen 1. Glass is great, reticle is the ebr-2c which i love. turrets are pretty good for the class of scope this is in. I would highly recommend this scope to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love vortex scopes. I replaced the gen 1 6-24 viper ffp pst with the gen 2 5-25 ffp viper. I love the clarity, does great in low light conditions. Im so happy im going to replace a few scopes on other rifles with the gen 2 vipers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knocking them dead My son bought this two months ago ready for the elk and deer season and getting ready for a moose hunt in British Columbia ( senior gift). He saved all summer and sold his last Vortex to buy this one.You can't ask for a better rifle scope. The main purpose of buying this one was for the long range ability and to take on his moose hunt. So if he has to take a five or six hundred yard shot he will. Will be bringing this scope to Crystal Lake Resort to bag that trophy once in a lifetime Moose, bear, and wolf this September.

Placing the Viper PST Gen II 5-25x50FFP on a Bergara B14 Hunter rifle in 6.5 creedmore. If I go with 0MOA base, home much am I limited to in adjustment? I plan on using this as 600-yd gun for hunting but some longer range range work...ring heih=ght

Asked by: mm1825
The amount of adjustment you will have left is dependent on how much the rifle uses getting sighted in. You should have enough adjustment to shoot out to 600 yards with your setup however.

Does the Viper PST Gen 2 5-25x50 FFP come with MOA 1/4 click value Turrets and MOA Reticle? According to the info I'm seeing it has .1 mil click value and a choice of MIL or MOA reticle. If so please update the info.

Asked by: Shockwave
The Viper PST Gen II is available in either MOA or MRAD. If you choose MOA, it will have 1/4 MOA turrets and a MOA reticle. If you choose the MRAD version it will have .1 MRAD turrets with a MRAD reticle.
