Vortes Viper rifle scopes feature etched glass reticles protected by sandwiching within two layers of glass. There are ten illumination settings and an off setting is included between each one so you don’t have to cycle through all the settings to get back to where you were when you switch the illumination back on. The illumination is powered by a single CR2032 battery for long life. The Viper PST series utlize XD extra-low dispersion glass in their objective lenses and XR multi-layer anti-reflextive coating is used on all lenses. Both objective and ocular lenses are protected by an ArmorTek™ coating.

The EBR (Enhanced Battle Rifle) turrets are easy to manupulate and feature and easy Return to Zero (RTZ) feature. The Vortex PST CRS (Customizable Rotational Stop) system prevents turret from below more than one revolution below the sight-in zero. The First Focal Plane (FFP) model Vortex rifle scopes have graduations that stay the same regardless of magnification, greatly easing the difficulty of calculations and ranging. These scopes feature a very large range of adjustment. Three reticles are available on the Vortex Optics scopes:

MOA (Minute of Angle), with subtension lines that equal approximately 1″ at 100 yards.

MRAD (Milliradian), with subtension lines that equal approximately 3.6″ at 100 yards or exactly 10 cm at 100 meters.

TMCQ (Tactical Milling Close Quarters) hybrid reticle is designed for rapid, close- and mid-range shooting, as well as ranging, that combines an illuminated red dot with MOA or MRAD subtension lines.
