    This Vortex Diamondback Riflescope completely changes the rules when it comes to you get what you pay for. First, the solid one-piece aircraft-grade aluminum alloy construction makes it virtually indestructible and highly resistant to magnum recoil. Argon purging puts waterproof and fogproof performance on the agenda and the advanced, fully multi-coated optics raise an eyebrow when crystal clear, tack sharp images appear in the crosshairs. All this and more in a riflescope that seems like it should cost so much more but does not. Whiz or not you do the math.

    Waterproof Lens
    O-ring seals prevent moisture, dust and debris from getting inside the tube for reliable performance in all enviorments.

    Fogproof Lens
    Filled with argon gas to inhibit internal fogging over a wide range of temperatures.

    Precision-Glide Erector System
    Premium-grade fluoropolymer teflon resin bushings provide exceptional resistance to stress cracking, temperature change, corrosion and friction-induced wear. In addition, these bushings have an ultra low coefficient of friction for the smoothest possible operation of the magnification adjustment.

    Machined for Durability
    Truly adjustable with just the tips of your fingers, the audible and tactile clicks help you make precise adjustments. Even more important is the fine machining of the metal on metal dials.

    45 Day No Hassle Returns

    We want you to love what you buy! But if you don’t, we offer a simple “No Hassle Returns” policy. We allow you to return all new, unused, unassembled, and resalable items in their original packaging within 45 days of delivery for a refund (minus the original and return shipping costs incurred by ShoppersChoice.com). Naturally, if your return is because of our error, you are not responsible for any shipping costs.

    • If your return request is due to product defect or damage, we will first work with you to get the product repaired. If repair is not possible, then we’ll work with you to get it replaced.
    • If your return will be coming back via freight truck, we will require you to provide us a photo before your return will be authorized. This can be as simple as a cell phone pic! We just need a “before” picture in case there is any damage to the item on its way back to us.
    • To expedite the returns process, before shipping the item(s) back, make sure they are clean, the packaging is sufficient to prevent damage, and (if necessary) you note all defects along with the photos taken.

    Important information about refund eligibility:
    To be eligible for a “No Hassle Return,” items must be returned within 45 days of delivery in “Like New” condition. “Like New” condition is when a returned item is unused, unassembled, and has been returned in the original packaging.

    • Full refunds do not apply to certain items, including clearance items, gift cards, gift certificates, items that have been personalized, and items clearly marked as “non-returnable,” such as products sold as “Warehouse Deals.”
    • The costs of return shipping are deducted from your refund or merchandise credit.
    • In many cases, refunds are not processed until the item has been inspected by us in our warehouse.
    • Refunds must be applied to the same credit card, debit card, or other form of payment used in the original transaction.
    • In many cases, refunds are not processed until the item is inspected upon return delivery.
    • ShoppersChoice.com reserves the right to refuse a refund on a returned item if:
      • The item that has been returned does not match the original item shipped to the customer.
      • The returned item is missing parts or the original product’s packaging.
      • The item was damaged during the return shipment due to improper or insufficient packaging.
      • The item being returned has been obviously heavily used (such as significant charcoal buildup inside a grill).
      • The item has been assembled in a way that would impede proper packaging for return shipping.

    In exchange situations, there are TWO options:

    1. If you need the product right away, you can purchase a replacement on a new order to get it shipped out as soon as possible. Then return the original item and we’ll refund you for the original once we’ve received it back to our warehouse in “Like New” condition.
    2. If you can wait a little longer, return the original item and once we’ve received it back to our warehouse in “Like New” condition, we’ll refund you for that purchase, then have you purchase the replacement on a new order and we’ll ship the replacement as soon as possible.

    Custom made-to-order/special order items are made to your specifications. Due to the custom nature of made-to-order/special order items, all sales are final. Made-to-order/special order items defective due to manufacturing will be repaired/replaced as long as the claim is made within the warranty period offered by the manufacturer. Custom pieces damaged in shipping will still follow all steps for a freight claim as previously listed here. All Custom pieces will be repaired or replaced with an item of the same nature as previously ordered. You will not be allowed to order an item that differs from the damaged or defective item.

  • Great scope for the money, super clear glass!

    Vortex makes some great scopes for the money. I put this scope on one of my .22 rifles and I've been very happy with it. It seems to hold zero well. The glass is incredibly clear, and the scope is backed up by Vortex's transferrable lifetime warrantee. This scope is available in a "non rifmfire" version, which is available in the V-Plex or BDC reticle flavors. The difference between the rimfire and non-rimfire versions is where the paralax is set from the factory. For the rimfire scopes, paralax is set at 50 yards, while the non-rimfire version has the paralax set at 100 yards. I have the non-rimfire version with BDC reticle on a different .22, and have had no problems zeroing the scope at 50 yards. The reticle is a simple, fine crosshare, so if you are looking for something more advanced, look at the same scope with the BDC reticle. The BDC reticle is intended to take some of the guesswork out of shooting. The problem is you still need to know how your particular ammo in your particular rifle will behave at different distances to effectively utilize the BDC. The simple V-Plex reticle is fast than the BDC (in terms of time to get on target) and will get you close enough for plinking and hunting if you practice and get a feel for holdovers or scope adjustments. The adjustment dials/turrets are good and offer definite, audible clicks. The clicks are not as nice and "crisp" as on some of my other scopes, but those scopes 5x more than the Diamondback. The only problem I had with this scope (and my other Diamondback) was when I went to reset my turrets. To set these turrets, you will need a broad bladed screw driver or a coin to remove the screws holding the turrets in place. Unfortunately, from the factory my screws were extremely tights. So tight in fact that I had to hold the turret lightly with a set of pliers in order to get the screw unstuck. Once the screw was removed, I found that removing the dial was tough and required use of a flathead screw drive to pry the dial off of the scope body. Of course, this requires you to re-zero your scope. So, I would recommend loosening the turret screw before heading off to the range for the first time. Leave it tight, but loose enough that the screw can be removed using a coin at the range. Doing so will allow you to reset your turrets after zeroing your scope, and then make fine adjustments at the range. I would put this scope up against offerings from from other major manufacturers any day, especially when factoring in both price and the transferrable lifetime warrantee. The Diamondback line is a major step up from the Crossfire II line of scopes, and is worth the additional money. You can spend even more on the Viper line, but Vortex doesn't offer a dedicated rimfire scope in the Viper line. If I were to improve anything on this scope, I would like to see a better turret design. Also, I'd like to see an option for "tacticle" turrets, which allow you to adjust for range and windage on the fly. This all being said, I really like this scope and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

  • Buy one!!!!

    Ive owned three of these scopes so far and recommend them to ANYONE who is in the market for an economic hunting optic. As for their warranty, I submitted one such scope that fell from approximately 4 feet onto a concrete floor and was utterly ruined. Vortex had my rebuilt scope back in my hand(in Alaska) in under two weeks and it didn't cost me a dime. In summation, I HIGHLY recommend this optic for anyone who wants quality materials, excellent construction, great low-light capability and anti-fog properties all at an affordable price. My friends, you won't be disappointed!

  • Tough as... well... a .50 BMG

    I work at a local gun shop/range. One day a customer asked us to sight in his .50 BMG. We looked at his set up and noticed he had a Vortex Diamondback scope on it. It was a shock and a relief. A shock because we expected to see a much larger and more "durable" brand scope. A relief because Vortex scopes are accurate and consistent in their adjustments. I shot the set up to sight it in, and after six shots, the gun was sighted and the scope was still functional. For those who don't know, .50 BMG's generally destroy optics in the Diamondback's price range. This is one tought scope.

  • Cyrstal Clear

    A few years back I started my quest to find a nice rifle scope for a good price. I started looking at well known brands and then came across the Vortex Diamondback line of scopes. As I compared it to another high end brand that was $200 more, I was astonished at the clarity of the Diamondback. This Diamondback is crystal clear. Since I have had this scope mounted on my rifle, I have taken two elk and one mule deer and never had a problem with the scope. It finds the target and gives me a clear view of the sweet spot every time. I love the sleek look of the scope and the quality of the optics. I would highly recommend this scope.

  • Hard to beat combo

    I bought my Vortex 4-12 x 40 BDC to replace a department store 3 x 9 that came on my Ruger M77 30-06. I couldn't be happier. Clarity, generous eye relief, easy to sight in, no questions asked warranty. What more would one want? And all at a price that puts the others to shame. You can pay more and get a fancy name or you can keep a few Franklins in your pocket and get comparable scope. As to whether or not I would recommend it to friends, I already have.

  • You will not believe it

    i bought this scope about 2 years ago. I have put this thing through the ringer. I hunt 3 times a week and fish the other two or three days. I always take my rifle. It has been dropped, gone off the side of small cliffs with me attached and used rough and it has never lost zero, dials have never gotten gritty or sluggish. this scope is built tough. I have owned many different scopes and have returned them or taken a loss cause they break. this holds up, hold zero, and this scope I dare say could hold up to any panty waste weekend warrior or garage commando. this is my experience. glass clear. field of view is wide. scope is useable at night. holds zero. period. any guys who say otherwise are nitpicking and spend more time at the keyboard then with wind in the face and sun on the cap. bottom line scope=good.

  • Incredible Quality - Immediate Value

    This is the second Vortex product I've purchased.  Why? Quality and Confidence.  I love the quality of their optics.  Clear glass, great light control, solid construction but lightweight delivery.  I really like the Deadhold BDC reticle and how once I've got it sighted in.  It's extremely accurate, regardless of the change in distance.  My first time using the scope I made three adjustments with the clearly defined dials (no guessing in the field) and was dialed in on the bullseye.  I also have complete confidence that should something happen to my scope, I will have no problems getting back outdoors and doing what I love.  The only improvement I'd suggest is threading for a sun shade. But no question, I'm happily a Vortex customer for life!

  • I choose Vortex over my Leupold

    I choose vortex to replace my leupold I was not very happy with my leupold 3.5x9 scope as I felt the field of vision was difficult to find and very small. Having paid over 400 for the scope I didn't not want to admit failure. I checked out the vortex diamondback scope and was blown away. I couldn't argue (nor could my wife) with the price. The field of vision and the clarity were exceptional.  I will now change all my scopes over to vortex.  Great product. The customer service at vortex helped explain their scopes, which was amazing to talk to someone.  Vortex believer for sure
