vortex diamondback 2 7x35 review

Featuring one piece solid airplane-grade aluminum alloy, the Diamondback riflescope is virtually indestructible and highly resistant to magnum recoil. Argon purging puts waterproof and fog-proof performance on the agenda, while advanced fully multi-coated optics raise your eyebrows as crystal clear tack-sharp images appear in the crosshairs.

This value-packed Diamondback riflescope is a great choice for big game, predator/varmint, muzzleloader, and slug shotgun use at close range. Its Dead-Hold BDC reticle eliminates guesswork by eliminating hold-over and windage errors. It also remains a favorite among hunters because it is customized to various target situations where estimating is a concern.

In terms of optical performance, it has a very good edge over Vortex Crossfire II and Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40 scopes when comparing head to head. The Diamondback is brighter, better illuminated, and offers a larger exit lens than the Crossfire II.

Diamondback features long eye relief and an ultra-forgiving eye box, making it easy to get a clear sight picture without straining the eyes. It also features a fast focus eyepiece for quick reticle focusing and an excellent view through the turrets.

The 2-7x35 Diamondback rimfire scope is designed to work on 22 rimfire, shotguns and muzzleloaders and provides 50 yard parallax for accurate shooting. It's perfect for target or hunting applications and comes with a V-Plex reticle, Precision-Glide Erector System and capped reset turrets.

This is a very good budget rifle scope under $200 from Vortex, which could serve you well on a range gun or many hunting applications. It is tough and durable and offers a lot of features that you would expect to pay a lot more for. The VIP warranty is also a big plus and you can count on Vortex customer service to be available if you need help.
