Specifically designed for the military, law enforcement and committed precision shooting communities, the VORTEX Viper PST 4-16x50 Riflescope, EBR-1 MRAD Reticle (PST-416S1-M) offers the highest levels of performance and reliability. With features such as matched turret/reticle subtensions, CRS zero stop mechanisms and precision ranging reticles, the Viper PST is ready for any situation.
The Viper PST (Precision Shooting Tactical) is built on a precision-machined, one-piece aircraft-grade aluminum tube protected by a type-3 hard-anodized finish. The large diameter 30mm tube provides additional strength and rigidity, as well as extra room for extreme range elevation adjustments. The construction is 100% waterproof, dustproof and fogproof - purged with argon gas to prevent internal fogging and corrosion.
This model riflescope uses a second focal plane reticle. This style of reticle always maintains the identical visual size regardless of magnification. The advantage to this style of reticle is that it will not become too large and "heavy" at high magnifications.
XR coatings deliver incredible image detail with extremely high resolution and light transmission. XD (Extra-low Dispersion) glass objective lens elements made of extra-low dispersion glass enhance image resolution and are carefully selected and precision crafted to exacting standards for true-to-life images of startling clarity and color accuracy.
The Viper PST riflescope uses a side focus parallax adjustment which, when properly set, eliminates parallax errors. Parallax is a phenomenon that results when the target image does not quite fall on the same optical plane as the reticle within the scope. When the shooter's eye is not precisely centered in the eyepiece, there can be apparent movement of the target in relation to the reticle, which can cause a small shift in the point of aim. Parallax error is most problematic for precision shooters using high magnification.
Matching (mrad or MOA) turrets and reticles facilitate fast, accurate range calculations. Unique, stackable shims provide a zero-stop under the elevation turret, and the patent-pending fiber optic Radius Bar turret rotation indicator visually tracks revolutions.
Tall uncapped turrets are O-ring sealed for absolute waterproof performance and feature precision-machined turret screws. Finally, the Precision-Force system, using the heavy-duty aluminum alloy erector tube and a single zero-memory chromium vanadium erector spring, provides precision and predictable tracking.
ArmorTek is an ultra-hard, scratch-resistant lens armor, chemically bonded on the outer glass surfaces. ArmorTek's unique stain-proof topcoat features a slippery surface that actually repels the oil and corrosive salts from fingerprints. Dust, dirt and smudges are easily wiped away without fear of scratching the optical glass beneath.
Designed to maximize long distance shooting and ranging abilities, the EBR-1 MRAD reticle can be used to effectively determine ranges, holdovers, windage corrections and moving target leads. Ultra precision laser etching on the glass reticle ensures that mrad specifications can be kept to the tightest tolerances possible. The fine center crosshair subtensions on the EBR-1 MRAD reticle were carefully chosen to provide the optimum balance between precision aiming and low light visibility.
Born from an intimate understanding of riflescope design, forward-thinking engineering, and open ears to a market incredibly vocal about what it wants in a riflescope, the Viper PST riflescope delivers the performance and features tactical shooters demand at an economical price.
The Viper PST 4-16x50 Riflescope comes with 4-inch sunshade, CR2032 battery, CRS shims and the VIP Unconditional Lifetime Warranty.
