Tree stands to mountain tops, bolt guns to ARs, the Viper
HST is ideal for a wide range of shooting applications. Blending many of the
best features from Vortex's incredibly popular Viper PST and Viper HS
riflescopes, the Viper HST riflescope is built on an ultra-strong 30mm,
one-piece aluminum tube to deliver ample windage and elevation travel and
optimal adjustment. An advanced optical system, highlighted with a 4x zoom
range, provides magnification versatility. A forgiving eye box with increased
eye relief gets shooters on target quickly and easily. Incredibly precise,
repeatable and durable tactical turrets built specifically for dialing, along
with its hashmark-based VMR-1 reticle, top off this highly versatile
riflescope’s long-range performance features.
