The Viper PST Gen II brings you all the features of elite, top-tier tactical optics, with exceptional performance at a fraction of the cost. The 5x optical system delivers bright and crisp images across the zoom range with an impressive field of view for quicker target acquisition. Exposed turrets provide ample range of adjustment for dialing long-range shots, are available in MOA or MRAD and always match the reticle. After a day of dialing at extended ranges, the integrated, mechanical, RZR zero stop will bring you back to your exact zero every time with positive engagement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing So far I love this scope. This replaced my viper pst 2.5-10x44 gen 1. Loved that scope also, but upgraded to the gen 2 for the zero stop. Also love the turret size and where they placed the illumination knob. All in all I view is to be a solid upgrade. Sighting in was a different process than what I was use to. You cant go wrong with vortex. amazing products and they offer you an amazing warranty that nightforce and bigger companies don't offer. Thanks vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing value Bought this for long range target and hunting. Put it on my 308 and couldn't be happier! Reticle is easy to use and the image is clear as day. Took me a bit to figure out the zero stop but the manual made things easy. Definitely buying more from vortex in the future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving this scope! So I finally decided to join the 6.5 Creedmoore craze and got a Browning X-bolt. Since i already have a couple of the 5-25 PST Gen II scopes on rifles I decided to go a little liter on this gun. It is proving to be all I expect from Vortex! Super clear and precise adjustments! Great product Vortex!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't get better! Been super happy with all my vortex products, when I got this scope I was so thrilled and it just completed my AR build. Glass is clear and crisp, scope feels very durable and handles being in the truck on rough roads and stays true to zero. Highly recommend this scope And all vortex products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beast of an optic at an acceptable price I bought the 3-15x in the MOA reticle last year and put it on my long range .308, so I use it for target shooting out to about 800 meters maximum. I'm a proponent of having a large field of view (from combat experience), so not going up to the 20s helps me out quite a bit with quick target acquirement and awareness. The PST Gen II is definitely a bit heavy, but you know right away that the thing is a beast - I banged it about quite a bit on a trip backpacking with my rifle through the Arizona desert and it never missed a beat. The turrets are honking big thick sons of a guns, so you get great finger purchase on them as you're dialing in your dope. The zero stop function is fairly easy to use and doesn't require shims or anything crazy. Since I'm often changing altitudes on these kinds of trips, I need to easily change the zero, and the Gen II turrets help with that a ton. Optical clarity is unmatched in this price range, chromatic abberation is minimal to zilch, you name it. It's a great optic if you can afford it. Looks cool too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PST Gen 1 4-16 SFP I’ve been hunting and target shooting with my Gen 1 PST for over two years. Longest shot was 498 yards on a Springbok. Best quality optics in this price range in my book and I can’t wait to get my 6mm Creedmoor and try out the Gen 2.
