Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value The pst gen 2 3-15 ffp...this scope, for me, feels like I'm sitting behind something special. I love the reticle, especially the FFP feature. Illuminated, it feels great for dawn and dusk shooting. I haven't experienced any issue with it, mounted on a High end .30-06 it pairs up perfectly. Go check one out when you get a chance. I can't see anyone being disappointed with this scope. You will have to fix your shooting habits long before you have to upgrade your glass to be effective.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Clear I have been enjoying this scope on my Tikka CTR .308 My primary use is for hunting and the illuminated reticle is a great benefit at the low light times of the hunt. With Vortex's QR. base, this scope has enough range on the reticle to reach out to 1100 Meters without needing to hold-over the target. I had the opportunity to compare my rifle scope to a spotting scope last week when we saw a moose in the mountains at 600 Meters distance, and admittedly we had better success viewing points of the animal through my PST 2, at 15X then we did thourgh my friends Diamondback spotting scope on 45X. All that to say I was pleased with my optics. My friend, after trying my gun said "you could shoot the needles off a pine tree with this scope".

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Vortex PST gen 2 FFP 3-15x44 This is not a great optic! Vortex is selling made in china scopes at a premium price. The finish on all the knobs not very durable. (they will send you new knob covers if you ask) But this is not a problem you should have when you spend a $1000! The FFP is nice to have. But think twice before buying. Its heavier than anything in its class with little upside to the heavy weight of the scope. There are many better options for the shop around and find a quality Made in the U.S.A optic. Ps. The lenses on this scope will fog up very easy, when its cold cool or the humidity is above 80%. I feel ripped off!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Optic! I have the SPT Gen II on my 308 Rem 700 and it's awesome. Dialing in the ranges could not be easier and a 600 yard shot is no longer out of range. Now if I miss I can't blame it on the gun or optic, it's all me. The glass is clear and bright, not too heavy and the illuminated reticle is very handy when the light begins to fade. The only thing I would change is to make the illuminated part time out after a few hours to save battery life. I have left it on by accident a few times and then get out into the field with a dead battery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rugged and clear! I was in the market for an optic to put on my scar 17 that would last, as these guns are known to eat optics. Enter the viper pst gen ii. Built like a tank, I don’t think I’ll ever have an issue with this optic on the scar, and even if I did, you get the fantastic vip warranty with it! the glass is extremely clear, and the red dot functions on this are exceptional. This is a direct competitor to the Leupold mk 6 in my opinion, and it comes in at about half the cost! I definitely can’t recommend this enough!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Previous Review Revised I'd like to post a revision to a previous review I had written. In my first review I gave this scope 1 star based on several criticisms I had. However, just recently I was able to compare a Gen 2 PST to a Gen 1, side by side while shooting. I will have to admit that I was wrong in my previous review. The Gen 2 is superior to the Gen 1 in almost every aspect. The glass is a littler clearer. The field of view is MUCH larger. And the reticle is actually the same size when on the same power. The turrets seem better, and the scope seems well built. The only real criticism I have left is the weight. The Gen 2 is heavier than the Gen 1, but hopefully it is more durable. I was also able to compare the PST Gen 2 along side several other "Big Name" manufacturer's scopes in a similar price range. These "Big Name" brands, which I won't name here, often boast about having their scopes used by the US military etc. However, when comparing these scopes side by side with the PST Gen 2, it was obvious to me that the Vortex was the better scope. The glass was just as good. The turrets were the best of the bunch. And overall the Vortex seemed to be of the best quality. Putting the PST Gen 2 in perspective like this when compared to other scopes really made me want to revise my previous review. In fact I'd say this scope is great. I plan on buying a couple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal clear Purchased this scope for my Christensen arms ridgeline 300 win. Scope is crystal clear. Very forgiving eyereleif. Focus is smooth and very precise. Solid turrets. Great scope. Love my gen 1 one but these gen II’s addresses the few few issues I have with the first gen’s.
