Vortex Diamondback 4-12x40 Rifle Scope - Dead-Hold BDC Reticle
The Diamondback loaded with features! First, the solid one-piece aircraft-grade aluminum alloy construction makes the Vortex Diamondback riflescope virtually indestructible and highly resistant to magnum recoil. Argon purging puts waterproof and fogproof performance on the agenda, and advanced fully multi-coated optics raise an eyebrow when crystal clear, tack-sharp images appear in the crosshairs. Look for all this and more in a riflescope you'd expect to cost quite a bit more-but doesn't. We can live with that.

Customer Ratings & Reviews
Best deal on a vortex diamondback 4-12x40 for sale at mountsplus
I put this scope on my Mossberg patriot, and I love it. The clicks of the turrets are nice and crisp, the feel of the turret protectors are solid and have a nice feel to them, and it handles the recoil from those 180 gr rounds. As a bonus, it’s backed by a lifetime warranty so there’s that too, and I honestly haven’t heard a bad thing about vortex and their customer service—great product for a great price .
So Far I'm Impressed
I put this scope on a rifle I wanted to use as a ranch rifle - basically the firearm I put in the truck when I'm doing hunting-related maintenance on the land I hunt on. I am genuinely impressed with its clarity and how easily it lines up. The workmanship and quality are much better than I expected at this price point. Sighting it in was a breeze. After two outings at the range, I bought a second one and put it on a 22LR rifle I had that was in need of a new optic.
Great value, quality glass
I was running tight on funds, so I decided to try this Vortex Diamondback on my new Savage Model 11 Lightweight Hunter in 6.5 Creedmoor. I couldn't ask for a better fit for the rifle for the money. Clear glass and is holding less than 1 MOA at 200 yards. I use the LRBC computer on the Vortex website, which calculates the ranges for the reticle based on the load. The scope is light, bright, and has good turret adjustment. This is my fourth Vortex optic, and I have not been disappointed. This cope compares favorably with my Leupolds. For the money, it can't be beaten.
Vortex Diamondback 4-12x40 bdc review
I put this scope on my AR15. The best part about the scope is that the picture quality stands higher than the other optics at this price range. (Redfield, Burris, Nikon primarily were the ones I was also looking at.) The picture is the clearest and brightest of the bunch. It also has a good field of view, with very little "fisheye" effect on the outside edges of the picture. As for the construction, it is a relatively heavy scope and appears well built. I can't speak to the overall durability as i've not had it long enough, but at the moment, it is holding up well. That being said, there are things about this scope that could make it a poor option for some people. The eye relief is shorter than most of the competing options out there. This could cause problems for someone with a rifle with heavy recoil. Eye placement is important on this scope if one is to get the best out of it, and it is a bit pickier than some scopes about said eye placement. Bottom line, as long as you can get the scope positioned in a good position for your eyes, the optical quality of this scope makes this an excellent buy.
this scope is better
I have the Leupold VXI; this scope is better, in my opinion. I bought it for a Marlin 1894 Guide Gun, and it's a perfect scope for this gun. I went to the Vortex factory in Middleton, WI, 45 miles from me, and they were helpful, but I had to shop around and finally bought it from Midway. Great Warranty if you ever needed it. I own a 4-12x Vortex also, and they make great products for the money.
The glass is bright and clear
The glass is bright and clear(very clear), the reticle is practical, but when you take off the caps to adjust, you get the feel of something quite different than scopes in this price range. The adjustments feel sharp and precise. From optics to aesthetics, this scope truly stands out against its price point competitors. I have this scope mounted on my 30-06 and plan to put another on my CZ 17HMR. I wouldn't fault a guy for spending more money to buy something like a Leupold or Redfield to support American workers, but if you want the best bang for your buck than it is hard to beat this scope.
A great Scope
This is the first Vortex scope that I have bought, being a Leupold devotee, but it will not be the last. I have vortex binos and like them very much. This scope is a compact size but large in performance: crisp reticle and a very useful magnification range for hunting and up to medium long-range steel ringing. For the price, it is world-class.
Mounted on my Remi-700
Mounted on my Remi-700 in .308, the BDC works well enough for hunting/sniping applications. Optics are clear and bright. Crosshairs and BDC are large enough to see while not blocking out that target. At this price, for 90% of civilian hunting and shooting applications, this is a great scope. Vortex warranty, cust. serv. Packaging leads me to believe this company will grow very fast, and the popularity of their name will continue to grow as well.
I put this on my hunting rifle, Ruger M77 7mm Mag (replacing the Nikon Monarch that has been nothing but trouble). So far is holding, if it ever doesn't Vortex will make it right. Vortex is my go to scope now, I have 5 Vipers, 2 Diamondbacks and 1 Crossfire.
My Vortex Diamondback 4 12x40 Review
I'm 76 years young & have been hunting since I was 10 or 12. I've had all kinds of scopes during that time. I ordered this to try since I had a 6x Vortex for my .22. Out of the box on my old 284 win. I bore sighted it on a golf ball I have on tree @ 35 yds. The crosshairs landed exactly where my old scope was, GEEEZE, never had that to happen. I went down to the creek & shot the thing @ 35 yds. & it was only a 1/4" low &1/4" r. I couldn't believe it, so I shot two more times, the same hole. I made one adjustment, then Went to 200 yds. And shot a 1.25" group using all the power settings 3-9 they all tracked to the same POI. I never had a scope to do that in the 200 to 300 $ range.
Was very pleased with the performance of this scope.
Was very pleased with the performance of this scope. It holds zero very well with a variety of calibers. I tried this scope on a Ruger Mark II 338 and a Browning BLR 300 WSM, no problems at all. I plan on buying another one for my new Ruger Hawkeye Alaskan. I would recommend this scope for anyone looking for quality at an affordable price.
