About Vortex Optics 4-16x50 Rifle Scope

The Vortex Optics Viper HS 4-16 x 50 LR Long-Distance Riflescope is an evolutionary upgrade. It offers hunters and shooters an array of features sure to be well received. This riflescope features an optical system highlighted with a 4x zoom range that provides magnification versatility. It has an ultra-friendly eye box with increased eye relief that gets shooters on target quickly and easily because shooting opportunities can be measured in fractions of seconds. Built on a ultra-strong 30 mm one-piece machined aluminum tube, the 4 - 16 x 50 mm delivers increased windage and elevation travel for optimal adjustment.

The Viper HS 4 - 16 x 50 LR Long Range Rifle Scope features an exposed tall elevation turret with the CRS (Customizable Rotational Stop) zero stop. Combine that with 75 MOA of elevation travel (24 MOA per revolution) and you get a riflescope perfect for dialing precision long-range shots. This riflescope is available with the Dead-Hold BDC reticle which is good for hunting and shooting at varying ranges where estimating hold-over is a concern.

Vortex Optics 4-16x50 Rifle Scope Features

  • First Focal Plane: Subtensions remain consistent throughout magnification range
  • XD Lens Elements: Extra-low dispersion (XD) glass increases resolution and color fidelity, resulting in crisp, sharp images
  • XR Lens Coatings: Vortex proprietary XR fully multi-coated lens coatings increase light transmission for maximum brightness
  • 30 mm Tube: Provides greater strength and wider adjustment latitude
  • One-Piece Tube: Maximizes alignment for improved accuracy and optimum visual performance as well as strength and waterproofness
  • Aircraft-Grade Aluminum: Construction from a solid block of aircraft-grade aluminum delivers increased strength and rigidity
  • Waterproof: O-ring seals prevent moisture, dust and debris from getting inside the tube for reliable performance in all environments
  • Fogproof: Filled with argon gas to inhibit internal fogging over a wide range of temperatures
  • Shockproof: Lenses are locked in place, fore and aft, with machined locking rings to remain in perfect alignment and withstand recoil and impact
  • Hard Anodized Finish: Hard-coat anodization is durable; the low-glare matte helps camouflage the shooter's position
  • ArmorTek: Ultra-hard, scratch-resistant coating protects exterior lenses from scratches, oil and dirt
  • CRS Zero Stop: Customizable Rotational Stop (CRS) prevents dialing more than one rotation below your zero so you don't lose the zero when dialing large amounts of elevation corrections
  • Exposed Elevation Turret: Open type elevation turret with 1/2 MOA clicks and 24 MOA per turn allows rapid, accurate dialing of hold over corrections when desired
  • MAG-View: Combines a fiber optics magnification indicator with raised rear-facing magnification references for clear viewing in low light conditions
  • Fast Focus Eyepiece: Allows quick and easy reticle focusing
  • Side Parallax: Uses an adjustment mechanism on the left side of the riflescope to fine-tune focus for the purpose of reducing parallax shooting error
  • Export of this product outside of the United States of America is not allowed and is controlled by the US Department of State
