Vortex 2017 New products



  • Vortex has some interesting new products coming out. Gen 2 PST line and a new low budget Crossfire Tactical line, some range finding binoculars.

    The 3-15x44 gen 2 pst if it has side parallax and 30mm tube, and the glass is a bit better then the old PST will be awesome, there really isn't a good kid price 3-15 scope for a AR that I could find.



  • I'm actually interested in those range finding binoculars....

    ELs they are not, but at (probably) half the price and a lifetime warranty I'd give them a try.

  • Well hopefully they've improved their manufacturing techniques to eliminate dirt inside the scopes, reticles coming loose, and making clicks without the erector moving.



  • Yup that all needs to be done as well.

    I wouldn't expect it on the Crossfire line, but I would hope the gen 2 PST would have solved all that. They'll have to if they want to compete with the XTRii.

    And hopefully the glass is better to be usable in the upper mag ranges, which Scott has said it is better.

    And I think I would prefer if they stick with the 30mm tube. I looked at the XTRii the other day for my AR build, but it's so massive.



  • I'd like to see the new Tacical Diamondback when it comes out. It seems like it would be a good scope for an AR. Or for my boys new 22 he's getting.

    I've seen that floating debris, have had turrets not move the erector, zero stop throwing off zero, and how things look really "yellow" through them. GenII certainly has a lot to work on! I would love for there to be more reliable $1k scopes. It will be interesting to see how the new generation holds up!

    I see 25 yards on two of those parallax knobs. That'd be pretty cool!



  • If they look better/work better/are more reliable, they'll be onto something for sure. :)



  • 10mil turrets would also be nice on the Gen2 PST. Looks like they're still a 30mm tube which should be fine.



  • I believe they said 10 mil turrets. It sounds like the turrets will be similar to the first gen Razor scopes. Kind of makes sense since those can be had new for around $1300 or so.

    I like the 30mm tube, keep things a bit smaller, I've looked at the Burris XTRii 3-15 for an AR, but it looks massive.

    Both new lines of scopes are in that picture, it's interesting the ones that look like the old PSTs are probably the Crossfire Tactical and the new ones on the left are probably the PST2.

    More information is supposed to be on the website Wednesday.



  • New products are on the website.

    Looks like they all have parallax adjustment inside 25 yards ( didn't check the 1-6)

    Msrps in the 1k-1.4k range for the pst2

    The diamondback tactical, eh 1" tube roughly 60 moa, moa only it appears, 100 yard minimum parallax. Two options 3-9 and 4-12



  • I was really hoping their 1-6 would be a few hundred less. I need something for my 10.5" AR.



  • That's just MSRP we'll have to wait to see what street price is.

    I really hate how companies do that but whatever.
