VORTEX Introduces Diamondback Tactical FFP Riflescopes

    VORTEX Introduces the Diamondback Tactical FFP Riflescope 1

    Vortex has introduced two new first focal plane riflescopes called Diamondback Tactical FFP. They are available in 6-24×50 and 4-16×44 versions. These are arguably some of the most affordable FFP scopes available on the market that are made by a reputable manufacturer. Let’s watch the introduction video published by Vortex, then take a quick look at features of these new scopes.

    As in the case of any other first focal plane scope, the magnification adjustments of these scopes also proportionally change the dimensions of the reticle giving the advantage of using the same windage corrections, holdovers, and range estimations regardless of the magnification level.

    Both scopes feature 30mm tubes and come with EBR-2C reticles either in MRAD or MOA versions. These new Vortex scopes also feature multi-coated anti-reflective lenses, glass etched reticles and nitrogen gas purged construction which in conjunction with O-ring sealed design provides a fog proof and waterproof performance. The Diamondback Tactical FFP scopes are made of aircraft grade aluminum and feature a black anodized finish. The company also advertises the scopes to be shockproof.
