Vortex Viper PST 6-24×50 FFP Review

Mediocrity just does not cut it when it comes to tactical scopes. Nowadays, budget rifle scopes are packed with numerous premium features that could pretty much serve to accomplish your shooting requirements. There are caveats though. Such rifle scopes fall short on various core features that define the cut line between a perfect shot and a botched one. All the same, count on even hardcore shooting enthusiasts to still bid for the highest value out of their investment, as long as it is their wallets that are being dug into.

Vortex holds a reputation for producing high quality rifle scopes embellished with tons of value, and their higher end tactical scopes are no exception. In this article, we shall focus on one of the renowned line’s milestone product; the Vortex Viper Pst 6-24×50 FFP, specially designed for mid to long range shooting enthusiasts who want nothing less of a perfect shot, with the least effort before pulling the trigger.

Overview

A high end tactical scope, the Vortex Viper Pst 6-24×50 seamlessly combines multi-coated optics, high quality building materials, and intrinsic adjustment controls, rewarding shooters with a nuanced and extremely tactical sighting solution. Intriguingly, the signature highlight of this scope is not even its notably generous 6x-24x zooming range. The real deal is its first focal plane reticle. This component is designed to eliminate a huge chunk of complexity when estimating range and holdover, thanks to its EBR reticle. Moreover, the EBR reticle incidentally happens to be of the illuminated variety, making the Vortex Viper Pst 6-24×50 Ffp an ideal pick for any low light encounter.

Alternatives/Comparison

Should you find yourself unprepared to invest the handsome amount of bucks called for by the Vortex Viper Pst 6-24×50 FFP , then you should perhaps consider getting the Vortex Viper 6.5-20×50 PA, a comparatively pretty decent scope that comes at about half the price. In fact, the mid-end product boasts of a sizable number of features similar to the Vortex Viper Pst 6-24×50 Ffp – particularly its light transmission quality, robust construction and intuitive magnification controls. Further on its upside, its adjustment controls are quite in harmony with the standard design, rendering it more beginner-friendly. On the flip side, it is fitted with a second focal plane reticle which is, by default, configured for 14x zoom – you’ll have to manually calculate sub tensions for any other magnifications.

Conclusion

By all means, the Vortex Viper Pst 6-24×50 Ffp is not a reinvention of the wheel when it comes to key scope functionality. As a matter of fact, it is comparable to several other offerings currently available in the market. However, it does stand out when it boils down to details: the etched, illuminated and tactical FFP reticle; the intuitively designed adjustment controls; the zero stop mechanism; all these synchronize effortlessly to achieve an extremely streamlined user experience.

Last but not least, this review would be incomplete without mentioning Vortex’s industry-leading warranty policy. It’s no different with the Vortex Viper Pst 6-24×50 FFP – an unlimited and totally transferable warranty. The manufacturer vows to fix or replace your scope on the discovery of any flaw or development of a hitch. This should undeniable be a major confidence booster for such a big time expenditure.
