The Viper PST Gen II 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 Precision Performance! This scope is amazing. I have this on a Ruger Precision Rifle and it performs perfectly. It's First Focal Plane so your adjustments are effective at any magnification. This optic works beautifully at all ranges and all magnification levels. Crystal clear in low light, illuminated reticle works perfectly. This is a precision tool used on a precision weapon. I would trust this optic to do what it needs to do, no matter what I asked. Not often do you find a piece of equipment that you can build a rig around, but the PST Gen 2 is a piece that you. If you need high end performance at a great price, give this scope a look.

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 Awesome scope for price I coupled the Viper PST Gen II 5-25x50 FFP with my new Ruger Precision 6.5 rifle. At first, I couldn't zero. My advice, don't trust the gun store when they say they have bore sighted. Do your own bore sight. After the bore sight, it was only a matter of a few rounds at 50 yds and a few more at 100 yds. I'm an amateur and did it in no time. This is my first long range rifle. I was able to hit 3 rounds within .25 inches. The nice features like bringing the scope back to zero and the 11 level of illumination are great for an amateur. Going to try to this out at sniper training school next summer doing longer distances at 800 yds. Can't be beat at $ 1500 CAD.

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 All the features without a 2k price tag I have had this scope for a month. Everything has worked flawlessly so far. As you can see from the photos the scope shows the rifles accuracy very well. I had a little issue figuring out how to set the zero stop however since it is such a popular scope there are many videos explaining it online. Once that was figured out it has kept the zero the last three uses. I have not shot past 100 yards yet however am confident I wont have an issue. The one thing I wish the scope had is flip up caps instead of the style it comes with. Over all for the price and quality I don't think their is another brand scope that beats this model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must have for shoot long range! I purchased this optic to pair with my Ruger Precision rifle. After having great luck with another Vortex Optic on my R700 I figured this would pair with the Ruger great. It has no problem reaching out past 1000yds and then some. The illuminated FFP reticle allows you see exactly what your point of impact is with amazing clarity. The turrets adjust quickly with a nice textile click with each turn. The illumination is crisp with no blur off like other optics. I paired this optic with the Vortex Defender Lens Caps which fit perfect and provide great protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal clear, great range, solid scope! I bought this scope for a Ruger Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor. Looking through the scope it is crystal clear. Being that it is 5-25 power you have a great range to cycle through. At 5 power, while not ideal, you can shoot at shorter ranges ok, but at the highest power, you can get good visuals of targets at much further ranges. The scope is built extremely well, the turrets have nice tactile clicks and everything is very solid. My only complaint, which is mostly due to it being so new, is the illumination knob is very tight, and bare handed it is difficult to turn, but with some gloves, it was much easier.
