Pro's: Clear even at max magnification Crisp adjustments Gathers light very well Dead hold BDC and Vortex LRBC work great to gather Con's: Very short eye relief. I have had to alter rails to clear the scope it is so short. No sunshade for this model even though its threaded. -over all its a great scope for 200 or less. Competes with scopes that cost $400-500. If the eye relief was fixed it would be one if the best hunting scopes on the market in my opinion.
I purchased this after researching the Redfield Revolution and the Leupold Rifleman. This scope served me well for the time I had it. I eventually gave it to my father for his first hunting rig. It's served him well since then. The glass is extremely clear, reticle is very clean and it's lightweight. I haven't purchased another diamondback in this model but I did get the 4-12x40 with AO and love it on my Ruger 10/22. I think I will get another diamondback or diamondback hp in the future unless I ... go the Viper route. Either way, you can't go wrong! Great scope at a great price.
I use this scope for many different reasons. I love to hunt and I have it on my Rem. 700 308 have not had any problems in the field with it. I have killed a lot of paper with it too. I am holding a group of 1/4 in at 200 yards. The eye relief is perfect. When my wife wants to shoot my rifle I automatically know how many clicks I need to send her up or down, and then i can pick the rifle right back up and place it on zero and go back to grouping my shots like nothing ever happened. I love this ... scope so much I have purchased others.
Got it at Cabelas, the glass is impressive and clear. At home I can read a license plate at 300-350 yards easy. At the range, out in full sunlight I did notice a slight loss of clarity at full magnification at the same distance still manageable though. At 100 yards I was shooting tight groups and it held true with a 7.62 AR platform. Overall I'm impressed to have this quality at this price. Just bought another tonight. Thanks for keeping your product affordable!
I bought a Mosberg Patriot 308 with Vortex Crossfire II 3x9 40mm. I laser bore sighted, then went to range. 2 shots, made adjustment, next shot bullseye. Made small adjustment, dead bullseye. Shot the remaining 17 bullets, every shot inside the white bullseye. This is a great scope. Have a Nikon and this one out performs for half the cost. First shot on the Ranch, dropped a 12 point where he stood.
I purchased this scope for my Mini30. I was searching for a well priced scope that I wasn't afraid if it took a beating or not. I bought this scope because the glass was as clear as other scopes that were 2 or 3 times the price. I picked this up and mounted to my rifle with zero knowledge of the brand or the quality. The price was right for a scope that I figured would work until I found something else. Needless to say ........ It is still on my Mini30 several years later. I have used this scope ... to show other friends that you can get a fantastic quality scope for a good price. As the title indicates, I now own multiple scopes from Vortex ranging in price. I recently replaced my spotting scope with a Vortex and have absolutely no regrets!
I have this scope mounted on a Remington 700 300 win mag. This rifle is used for whitetail deer, mule deer and hog hunting. The scope is very clear and has great eye relief while still being simple enough for an average hunter to use in the field and on the range. The quality in the vortex product lines is never questioned and their customer service is second to none. This was my first vortex optic and since I have upgraded all my rifle scopes to Vortex along with my binoculars. I have also been ... able to convert two of my hunting buddies to Vortex and they are pleased with their optics as well.
Have always used and realy liked Leupold scopes, bought this to put on my 7mm STW and couldn't be more impressed with the clarity and appearance of this scope. Used it during deer season and early coyote season then put the rifle up and got my 223 out with a Leupold on it to finish the season, couldn't believe the difference in clarity and quality between the 2, vortex is by far a better scope in my opinion and I will definitely continue to purchase Vortex optics.
Bought a mossberg 270 that had the crossfire II and to my surprise after bore sighting it....... I was dead center on the bull at 100 yds after two shots. Fired 10 more and I never got out of the bull. I am about to order another one for 30-06.
This is my second vortex scope and I'll probably never but anything but vortex again. I have this scope mounted on my ar15 300 blackout and absolutely love it. I have no problem seeing at a distance and never worry about my scope failing me. It is crystal clear, well built and deadly accurate. For the money you would never expect a scope of this quality. I definitely recommend it to everyone! I'm probably going to buy another soon for another rifle.
After many years of dependable use my scope was damaged during a move from the east coast to the Great American west. After a phone call I sent Old Faithfull to the good people at Leupold in Beaverton, Oregon for a going over. They repaired my selector and reworked my erector system at no charge. Old Faithfull is like new again.Thank You Leupold
I bought a Leupold VX2 3X9X40 in 97 after getting out of the Marines. I mounted it on a Remington 700 30-06. This scope has never let me down. I take my weapon out a couple times a year and and my scope is never off. I've used many scopes over the years, I am also a police sniper and we don't get a choice in what optics we get. They are very good optics, but that hunting scope is my favorite. Dependable, reliable and sexy. Thank you Leupold.
I like Bushnell products not because they are so much better than the others but because of service after the sale. If anything happens to a Bushnell product most of the time it can be taken care of with a phone call. It's the Bushnell service that makes all the difference with me. Good Job Bushnell.
Tried a BDC 4-12 prostaff on my 270 WSM and very pleased with the results. Using the spot on technology to match my bullet, I feel confident at the long range shots. I hunt an area capable of 410 yard shot, and would welcome the long shot with my accuracy in using the BDC. I have killed a buck at 325 with a double lung shot with this 4-12, and thrilled by the clear optics and field of view. I have purchased 6 in the last 2 years because of the BDC match abilities. My leuopld VX 3 mounted on a ... nice 6 mm collects dust in the cabinet now since the BDC additions.
This is my third Nikon scope. 1 Buckmaster and 2 prostaff. Great scopes would recommend to buy. Bought at the Topeka, Ks store had it mounted and bore sighted. The guy that did it said it would be on an 8"paper plate at a 100 yards. I got it home took it out to my range fired 3 rounds looked at target fired 5 more rounds. I wasn't hitting the target not even on paper. 24 inches low at 100 yards. Like the scope, mounting was good, bore sighting I will do my own.
I've been buying Simmons scopes for 30+ years and never been disappointed. They help keep wild game on the dinner table
simple easy to use fast focus for small game. great for younger shooters
I bought this to use on the sport arise 1891Argentine Mauser to use it as pig hunting rifle.got to pigs no problem sighting in and scope @100 yds
Haven't shot it yet. Going to sight it in tomorrow. And dial in the TAG Rectical
I bought this last week to mount on my new Ruger American 308. I compared it side by side to the Leupold Vx1 3-9x40. The clarity between the two were nearly identical. The ultimate deciding factor was the the substantial difference in the way the turrets felt during adjustments. The whiskey 3 feels very solid when you adjust elevation and windage. Each click is pronounced. The leupold just didn't have that same feel. I sighted this in very quickly the day after I bought it. Was on very ... close paper the first shot at 25 yards, and had it where I wanted at 100 yards a few shots later. Great purchase. Thinking of picking up another for one of my other rifles.
I just picked this up. It's already dark but the clarity and light gathering is up there with higher dollar scopes
great scope 8+,clear,light and tough would tell a friend about the service and product
Used this scope on a Remington 783 and noticed the amount of the light transmission first and foremost! Zeiss quality for sure! Would definitely recommend!
extremely clear glass, great recticle and extremely forgiving eye box at all power settings, so good I am considering buying another
Love it. And cannot beat Academy's prices. Always shop here.
I bought this a couple of weeks ago, to replace a scope that came with my Benjamin Air Rifle. This is 10 times better than the scope that came on my Air Rifle
I purchase three of these scopes for fast brush hunting in the Wisconsin swamps. Once you learn to use them they are very fast to use. Optics great. I, used one on .338 Mag Sako to goo sheep hunting and took a 40 inch plus Dall Sheep in Alaska. Other scopes did fog up, my Tasco did not, we laughed! They had $300-450 scopes and mine cost under $50.00. After I shot my ram they mounted my scope on their rifles. All took a ram and this Tasco saved the day. I gave it our outfitter after then. Go figure.
both this and wasnt sure what i was getting. but the reticle is suppper clear and the illumination is perfect for low light conditions, and night coyote hunting in other states. Has a lifetime warrenty, and that was a big selling point, scope mounts are not bad if your on a budget. if nott then get the leupold mounts. over all a great product for the price.
I reluctantly purchased this scope wondering if it can handle the recoil of an X Frame revolver. It worked well using a low grain bullet rated at 2200 fps, and a higher grain rated at 2800 ft-lbs, so if you have a 460 or 500, this scope looks and works great without having to break the bank. I attached it using the Jack Weigand mount and rings.
