I am often invited as a writer to pre-launch events. Vortex hosts one of my favourite events. On a cold December day I drove to Wisconsin to see what Vortex had in store for them. The presentation started and my fellow writers and myself grabbed seats. Among the many items that were shared, there was one particular optic that stood out. The release date has now arrived, and I am now able to share with you the Vortex Venom 1-6×24 LPVO riflescope.

Vortex Venom Riflescopes

The Venom family will fit under the Strike Eagle scopes for those who are familiar with Vortex. The Venom 1-6×24 second focal plane delivers speed, reliability, and downrange accuracy in a hardworking LPVO built for entry-level carbine users. The scope has a true magnification of 1-6x and an AR BDC3 reticle to engage targets at close-to-mid-range. Vortex’s illuminated reticle delivers fast, accurate and close-to-mid-range engagements. Vortex has also included a lever for throwing the scope. Installing the throw lever allows for quick and simple magnification adjustment.

Vortex is proud to introduce the Venom. The optic features the XD Optical, multi-coated, fully fogproof lenses. It is also shockproof, water resistant, and nitrogen gas purged. Vortex has included flip caps, 2mm custom tool and a CR2032 batteries as a finishing touch. All this at a price of less than $400.

It is always interesting to hear engineers and staff discuss new products. But I prefer to actually touch them. Vortex’s Edge Training Facility was used for the event. The Vortex Edge Training Facility was one of the most beautiful training centers I’ve ever seen. The staff are excellent and there is a wide variety of classes. We also grabbed our jackets to hit the outdoor range where I tested the Venom. The range had steel from 50 yards to more than 1,000 yards.

Rounds Downrange Through the Venom 1-6×24 SFP

The optics I received were excellent. The glass is crystal clear and there are no distortions on the edges. The knobs were not only firm, but also not excessively rigid. The knobs were responsive and easy to use with gloves. The Venom 1-6’s throw lever made it easy to switch between magnifications. We began to run back and forth from the steel targets at 50 yards and the targets at 300 yards. The AR-BDC3 made our job easy and the brass flew. 

I was curious to see if the team had already zeroed it before our arrival. I’m a big fan of optics that have consistent and reliable turrets. In this spirit, I shot five shots at 100 yards from the bench and got a nice grey group. Then, I zeroed the Venom and fired another five-round group. The result was the same – a good grey group. Then I reset the optic back to zero, and fired another group of five rounds. This time, the rounds fell directly on top of my original five. I was delighted. When the Vortex team told us it was time for us to get back on the shuttle, I felt both lucky and unlucky. It was a typical Wisconsin December cold day, but I was having a great time.

Final Shots

In the last few years the optical world has boomed with both good and bad products. I have always believed that you should stick with those who you know and trust. Optics are expensive items and we rarely spend this much on optics and hope they work. I have always been impressed with Vortex and its no-BS warranty speaks volumes to the company’s dedication to both its customers and quality. You should consider the Vortex Venom 1-6-24 LPVO if you want a LPVO with a lot more features than its price suggests.
