The Diamondback Tactical is a long-range wolf in sheep's clothing. Rather than cramming features in at the expense of turret performance and optical quality, the Diamondback Tactical dials it back, putting the focus where it counts. Exposed turrets bring tracking performance previously unheard of at this price point, while its optical system delivers sharp image quality even at extended range. Its relatively simple design places you firmly in the driver's seat with the potential to take on that 1,000 yard mark and beyond, all at a price that's easy to justify for new shooters, your training rifle, as well as experienced shooters looking for a back-to-basics optic on their fun gun. Opt for one of the first focal plane models on a sweet shooting rifle and you've got yourself a perfectly capable competition rig without breaking the bank.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope for the price! This is my 6th purchase of a Vortex item. I love everyone of them! I have a Gen 1 Vortex Viper PST, Gen 2 Vortex Viper PST, Vortex Viper HS-T, Vortex diamondback 4x12x40mm, Vortex 1000 range finder, and now a 4x16x44mm diamondback tactical for a 224 Valkyrie build I'm doing. It's a perfect scope for this AR platform! The only problem the seller I purchased it from stated it was illuminated reticle. It isn't, but that's not a Vortex problem. I love the scope, thank you guys and gals for making great products and standing behind them the way you do!!! My plan now is to change all my hunting rifles over to the diamondback tactical series. I like the Viper PST gen 2s for my long range rifles..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good scope for the money! I bought this scope to use on a 22LR PRS trainer and it is a good scope for the purpose. The turret clicks are a little soft and the reticle appears to be "thinner" than other FFP Vortex scopes that I've used. You really can't use the subtensions below about 8x magnification and event he main crosshair is hard to see at 4x (for my eyes anyway). Some of that is par for the course with FFP scopes. The open center crosshairs do keep the reticle from covering small aiming points at higher magnification, that's a plus and I feel it would have allowed Vortex to beef up the reticle a little. For a less expensive FFP option it works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow Picked this up to put on my Ruger American predator and first 5 shots gun and scope out of box got the thing sighted in at 100 yards and the next group of 5 all went into the same hole and could cover most of the hole up with a dime. Buddy has a desert tech HTI and a vortex razor hd gen 2 package of about $6000 rifle and my $450 Ruger and $350 scope shot his groups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Value for what you get Picked this up last week for a new 6.5 Creedmoor hunting rifle. What an awesome combination. Nickel sized groups on the first outing. I started shooting FFP scopes about 3 years ago and have been waiting on a product that is priced to be able to add them to all of my hunting rifles, this is it. No more does a person need to say "I'll just aim high". I hunt whitetail on a lot of fields that range from 40-50 yards wide to near 400 yards long. With an accurate range finder and a few minutes memorizing the drop I know the exact hold over at what ever range I need to produce a lethal, humane shot. The turrets, are audible with a positive feel. Not as solid as the Viper or the Razor, but at hunting distances I am not going to be dialing especially with a FFP scope. However if you want to take the scope for entry level precision rifle matches it will more than do the job. The EBR-2C reticle makes hold overs and wind holds a breeze. 10 mils of hold over is more than I am personally ever going to need while hunting. This is not a Razor or Viper HD, but it is a great picture with edge to edge clarity, and priced at a point where you can pretty much put one on each hunting rifle without breaking the bank. Unless Vortex comes out with something better very shortly I can see 3 or 4 more in my future. I have a couple of buddies that are in the market for new scopes, I have told them to hold off until they see this gem. I cant think of what I would reccomend to improve this product for my intended use, but I would like to see a "package" deal that included the low profile level and Defender lens caps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Value I got the 4-16 FFP to go on a semi-precision .223 AR. It is perfect for this role but may end up on a .308 AR as well. I love FFP scopes and it is awesome to be able to get one for this price. Glass is nice, turrets feel a little soft but definitely usable. Reticle is great. At least a shim type zero stop would be great but I understand the price point. I had no trouble making accurate hits out to 700 yards on steel with the .223. The hardest thing about it was hearing/spotting the impacts at that range. It definitely goes well with my PST’s I have on my longer range rifles. 5 stars given due to the great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feature Rich, Reliable Tracking, Incredible Value I've had this scope on my precision AR-22 build for a few months now. The tracking has been spot on and has held zero through many rotations. The parallax adjustment comes in to targets as close as 10 yards (extremely handy for precision rimfire shooting)! I have not found another optic in this price range that is this feature rich and has everything you need for precision shooting. I've been so impressed with the 4-16 that I picked up the 6-24 for my new bolt action build.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drop tested I bought the Diamond back tactical 4-16x44 scope to mount in my Winchester xpr 270 for deer hunting on Molokai. Out of the box the scope scope was excellent. The glass clarity was better than expected. Warming up on targets at 600 yards was easy. After a day of hunting we had my rifle strapped to my friends Polaris coming down the mountain at speeds well over 30 mph. We get to the bottom and realize you rifle was missing. We lost it on one of the turns. Long story short I check the rifle and scope everything was fine. I took to the range the next day and the scope held its zero. Awesome scope. Looking to buy another to pair up with my AR10 308. Thank you Vortex, you have another lifetime customer. Aloha
