4. Vortex Strike Eagle 5-25×56 FFP Riflescope

This brings back memories. Vortex Strike Eagle was the first riflescope we featured on our website here.

The build quality of Strike Eagle is straight-up excellent. It’s made out of high-quality lightweight aluminum. The inside of the scope is purged with nitrogen as well. That makes the Strike Eagle a completely fog proof riflescope.

Fully multi-coating increases the brightness and strengthens the glasses overall. In short, it’s crystal clear.

Things To Keep in Mind Before Buying

Production Class rifles are more picky than regular rifles when it comes to scopes. You can install a regular scope and still use the gun without any issues. But the synergy and the performance won’t be the best. While choosing the scope from this list, keep a couple of things in mind. You can easily decide on which scope to get.


Having a durable scope with such a powerful gun is a must. You don’t want to change a broken scope every month. Instead, it’s better to invest in an expensive scope with better build quality.


Lens clarity is one of the top priorities in a long-range scope. Nobody wants to see through a blurry scope. Larger scopes tend to have some sort of distortion at maximum magnification. Thankfully, none of the scopes mentioned here suffers from that issue.


As you can see from the list, we have featured scopes at different price brackets. Depending on how much you are willing to spend, you can get the best scope for your budget.


That will conclude the article for today. I know that was a lot of information to digest in. But I hope the idea behind choosing the best scope for your PRS is clear now. You can go for any mentioned scope for the list and you will have a blast pairing that scope with your gun. With that said, we will see you guys on the next one… … …
