The illumination dial is located on the opposite side of the windage knob for easy access and streamlined performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scope with $1000 features This scope is a fantastic product, and has many features and a great value for the money. The glass is clear, and the illumination is daylight bright. Had a slight non-dealbreaking issue with the scope, but it was fixed in less than a week, and the scope works better than new! Get the throw ring; it will make a night and day difference with this scope (The only 2 nitpicks with this scope is the stiffness of the adjustment, which can be fixed via the aforementioned throw ring, and the weight, although I'm sure that means it's built sturdy.) Great company and product, and will be buying other Vortex products in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best buy for a buck! Bought this scope 10 months ago and It have served me well. In 1x scope works great as a Red dot, the image is so natural that you can shoot with it both eyes open. At the same time 6x magnification offers possibilities to take shots far out. Optical clarity is great for the price, I can spot my 223rem shots out to 100 meters. Brightnes of the fire dot is visible even in sunny conditions, but it is a bit too bright in dark. Maybe it gets better while the battery starts to run out.... In future I hope that there would be a 1-8x24 scope in pst series with 0,1mrad adjustments and mrad reticle. It would be awesome!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LPVO Patrol Rifle I honestly bought the Viper PST Gen II 1-6x24 MRAD, with a sense of reluctance, since all of my experience has been with the Razor line. The purpose of the Viper PST Gen II 1-6x24 MRAD was for a LPVO patrol rifle project. After many high round count training courses and consistent performance from the Viper PST Gen II 1-6x24 MRAD, it has earned my confidence. Deploying in a domestic LEO role demands reliability and performance, from a patrol rifle and the chosen optic. I am impressed and confident in my selection, of the Viper PST Gen II 1-6x24 MRAD, and no longer hold any reluctance, to deploy in a patrol level DM role, with the Viper PST Gen II 1-6x24 MRAD, as it has certainly proven itself in capability and performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Game Changer I purchased my Viper PST Gen II 1-6 for my primary 3 Gun rifle. I am thoroughly happy with my decision as the scope has exceeded my expectations. I love the MRAD reticle, combine that with the clarity of this scope and it is untouchable at the price point offered here. The adjustments are fine enough to achieve pinpoint accuracy to the shooter which translates to confidence in the shooter. The 1-6 variable magnification is perfect for 3 Gun competition offering true 1X with no visual distortion for those fast burn em down bay stages and at 6X you can easily identify long range challenges presented in 3 Gun. I also appreciate the inclusion of a sun shade. It is trivial to some but I have used the shade to my advantage several times this season while shooters using other scopes have been forced to fabricate solutions using kydex and I've even seen cardboard shot shell boxes used to fight the glare. I am extremely satisfied with this scope and intend to run this as my go to 3 Gun optic for the foreseeable future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope!!! I purchased Mrad version from Brownells along with cantivelver 2" mount, mounted to Ruger Sr556 takedown 16"barrel w/m4-72 compensator, zeroed at 50yds. . Excellent scope! Glass is very clear even at 6x[much better than Primary Arms 1-6x24 and strike eagle]. 200 yd shots effortless very easy to pick up target through scope. Illuminated reticle at 4 power setting allowed easy aquistion at 200yds max illumination a little harder to see but still manageable [shooting from covered rest on clear GA day]. 200 rds averaged 3 1/2 - 4" groups @ 200yds from bench with handguard on gun bag. At 1x very wide and clear sight picture [almost like there was no scope there, no to very very little color distortion]. max brightness at ipsc target at 50yds very easy to get off 5 shot groups at 1/2 second interval all in the A zone, using IWI and Prvi 55gr xm193 ammo. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweetness Got this yesterday and mounted it on a 14.5" AR. Mounted in a 1.93 MI mount to clear a DBAL. In short, this scope is amazing. The clarity is unreal, edge to edge. The 1x is true. The illumination is more than daylight bright. I had the PST 1-4 and this blows it out of the water. In comparison to the Razor HD GenII the only difference I could note is a slight bit of clarity difference at 400 yards and out. Other than that it is right on par. At the price point it is going to be a winner for Vortex, yet again. Outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this scope I use the viper gen 2 on a 556 ar15, for medium to long range shooting. I have had it out to the range once and I didn't have the best setup. I got it zeroed and love the scope. I was originally running am Eotech, which I love but having this scope is amazing. The clarity is by far one of the nicest I have seen. I am comparing to some of the higher end Leopold. This is my first scope I have purchased and I'm glad I made the purchase. If I build another rifle it will have at a minimum of a pst gen 2. Much nicer shooting through a scope out passed 100 yards then my eotech

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do not hesitate to purchase. I have been using the Viper Gen 2 1-6 for months now and I have been extremely satisfied. I have used it in close environments effectively (5-50 meters) and also effectively gotten hits at distance (1000 meters). I am really picky when it comes to reticles as I use them a lot. I like them simple, but you also need enough in the glass to do work and make quick calculations with out dialing. Vortex has done it with the Viper Gen 2. It weighs a little more than I would like, but the construction seems very robust. I smashed it against the ground (not intentionally) and turned around moments later to engage past 700 meters with pinpoint confidence. This scope is the best glass I have ever bought for the money. I prefer it even to the razor as it is lighter. Do not hesitate to purchase if you are on the fence. You will not be disappointed.
