Vortex Recon Mountain 15x50 Scope

The Recon Mountain scope is a unique, advanced tactical piece of equipment that is unlike any other in the field—the first truly compact, full-featured spotting scope developed especially for field surveillance and range estimating. The quick-handling, lightweight design features brilliant optical performance using Vortex premium XD glass and XR lens coatings. The included Picatinny rail mounts on both sides of the Recon to permit accessory attachment. Carry clip attaches to any belt, strap, or webbing for quick access in the field.

Construction Features


Roof Prism Valued for greater durability and a more compact size.


Waterproof Optics are sealed with O-rings to prevent moisture, dust, and debris from getting inside the spotting scope.

    Comments about Vortex 15x50 Recon Mountain Scope:

    Well made, great for longer distances. Not the right one for me. Too shakey if used without a tripod.
