Optical Features

APO System Apochromatic objective lens system uses index-matched lenses to correct color across the entire visual spectrum.
Optically Indexed Lenses Optimize image sharpness and brightness from edge to edge.
HD Lens Elements Premium HD (High Density) extra-low dispersion glass delivers the ultimate in resolution and color fidelity, resulting in High Definition images.
XR™Plus Fully Multi-Coated Premium proprietary coatings deliver the highest level of light transmission with multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces for maximum brightness.
Plasma Tech Cutting edge application process provides unparalleled coating durability and performance.
First Focal Plane Reticle Scale of reticle remains in proportion to the zoomed image. Constant subtensions allow accurate holdover and ranging at all magnifications.
Glass-etched Reticle Allows for intricate reticle design. Protected between two layers of glass for optimum durability and reliability.
Illuminated Reticle Provides precise aiming under low-light conditions.

Construction Features

Tube Size 34 mm diameter provides maximized internal adjustment and strength.
Single-Piece Tube Maximizes alignment for improved accuracy and optimum visual performance, as well as ensures strength and waterproofness.
Aircraft-Grade Aluminum Constructed from a solid block of aircraft-grade aluminum for strength and rigidity.
Waterproof O-ring seals prevent moisture, dust and debris from penetrating the riflescope for reliable performance in all environments.
Fogproof Argon gas purging prevents internal fogging over a wide range of temperatures.
Shockproof Rugged construction withstands recoil and impact.
Hard Anodized Stealth Shadow Finish Highly durable hard-coat anodization provides a low-glare matte surface and helps camouflage the shooter’s position.
ArmorTek Ultra-hard, scratch-resistant coating protects exterior lenses from scratches, oil and dirt.
L-Tec Turrets Integrated locking mechanism prevents accidental adjustments. Turrets provide fast, accurate, easily read elevation and windage adjustments. Patent pending.
External Rotation Indicator Provides quick visual and tactile reference of elevation turret’s rotational position.
Locking Illumination Locks illumination at preferred setting.
Side Focus Adjustment located on left side of turret housing is easily accessible from shooting position. Provides optimal image focus and parallax removal.

Internal Mechanism Design Features

L-Tec Zero Stop Prevents elevation turret from dialing below sight in range using rugged steel components. Internal mechanisms stay free of sand, dirt, dust, moisture and other foreign materials—even when setting the zero-stop position. Patent pending.
Maximized Turret Zero Adjustment For zeroing purposes, turret design allows expanded adjustment range when L-Tec zero stop feature is disengaged for zeroing purposes. This MOA scope offers 113.5 MOA total elevation adjustment and 48 MOA total windage adjustment.
Micro Adjust Zero Setting Infinite zero setting positions allow zero to be set between clicks for optimal accuracy.
Friction Reduction System Heat-treated, hardened-steel pad floats on the end of the turret screw and interfaces with a hardened steel ring on the erector tube for steel-on-steel contact. Prevents galling or deformation of the erector screw contact point for superior durability and repeatability. US Patent 7,958,665
Turret Screws Provides low-friction, wear-resistant performance: precision-machined from a silicon-brass alloy and treated with an advanced dry-film lubricant. Turret screw threads are precision machined to sub-2 micron tolerances (less than 78-millionths of an inch). Ultra-smooth operation and adjustments.
Erector Tube System Precision-machined from premium brass alloy with anti-galling properties for strength and durability. The chromium vanadium erector spring withstands compression, has high fatigue resistance and is tumble-polished to a mirror finish for micro-precise elevation and windage adjustments.

Convenience Features

Fast Focus Eyepiece Allows quick and easy reticle focusing.
Locking Side Illumination Easily accessible and lockable illumination dial is located on the left side of turret housing. Features eleven intensity levels of illumination with off positions between each setting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You won't be disappointed! I own over 15 vortex optics but this is my first Razor HD. I was hesitant about spending the extra money for the HD version considering all my other Vortex Optics are top knotch and Crystal clear, but I'm glad I did. I got this for a 6.5 creedmoor build and all I can say is WOW! This is a beast, difference between day and night. This scope is in a class of it's own. Well built, like a tank. Easy to see and use turrets. Turrets lock down so no way of accidental moving. Looking through this scope you see a world of difference. This is by far the best scope on the market! You will not regret buying this scope!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Workhorse A year ago I put this optic right next to a two others that cost nearly double what the Gen II does. Same objective, different brand. After 500 rounds down each rifle I came to the same conclusion I did after the first couple outings. The Gen II Razor is simply the workhorse optic in the long range precision rifle game. It simply gives up nothing against the competition. Actually it outranks the comparable optics as it is 1/2 the price with all the great features. This is not a cheap optic, but it is affordable in it's class. Optics come and go, at least one if not two pictured will be out of it in short as a winner has been picked. Hint: it's the first pictured.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure Joy The quality of the glass as well as operation of this optic is hands down the best or second to the best (when compared to the AMG). The eye box is extremely user friendly. The turrets are solid and defined making dialing in shots precise and exact. The only two things I could nit pick about this optic is the color and the reticle. The open cross hairs is nice but the reticle on the AMG EBR7 with the floating cross hairs appears to be a much better option for precision since it clears up some of that clutter around the optimum target area. If there could be a black paint option and another reticle option as well, I am sure it would surpass the AMG for units sold and used! It is a bit pricey but pay once, cry once!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to competition scope. I own 4 of the Gen 2 Razors and use them in National level Precision Rifle Series and NRL matches. Every single one has been rock solid with not a single quality issue or failure. I have seen scopes go down at rifle matches from about every other top end manufacturer, I have never seen a Gen 2 Razor fail the user at any of the events I have attended. One of our catch phrases of the top end shooters in recommending gear is "buy once cry once" well I have bought the Gen 2 four times and never cried once. I know I am getting the best product for my money with this optic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Want to Bet" It all started 50 years ago when two boys would go out shooting in Mississippi. Both of us have not shot in a long time and last year we made a bet about me being able to hit a target at 1000 yards with a caliber no larger than a 223. Now at 62 I took the bet and went to a local gun store and purchased a Howa 1500, now I know the optics are very important so I began my search. After several weeks of reading about all top scopes I finally purchased a Razor Gen ll 4.5-27X56. With in two week I had landed all 5 shots on target. The bet was for his 4 passenger ATV!!! Thanks Vortex for an amazing product!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top performing scope for half of some competitors offerings I have used this scope for 2 years competitively in tactical style matches and it has performed flawlessly. We engage targets out to 1200 yards regularly and the adjustments have been spot on. On heavy mirage days, this scope shines. I don't have a problem dialing down a touch and still having a clear view of the target. I can see just enough mirage to help with a wind call but that's it. The parallax is very forgiving. On a multiple target engagement stage, we might have targets as close as 200 yards and out to 600 yards. On these stages I rarely touch my parallax. I set it for the middle and run it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super quality and value Purchased this scope after handling one a friend mounted on his PRS rifle. There are several features on this scope that I like. My most favorite being tracking, I can trust the turrets 100%, and return to zero and be confident it's there. The elevation turret has a rotation indicator that compliments tracking , an awesome feature .The clarity of this optic is 2nd to none, very bright and distinctive. The reticle design (ebr-2c) is as user friendly as I've seen, not confusing and allows constant visual of target. Ultimately, this scope has all the features you could want. I have NF scopes and used other high end scopes, none come close in comparison when considering cost to quality.
