    Subtension detail for Razor 3 MOA red dot. >

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from S&W M&P FS Pistol Installed using the mount sold by Vortex - replaced the rear sight. 6 MOA Model. At pistol distances - 35 yds & under works it works very well. In full sun I was no where near the max setting for brightness. Out of the box sight was aligned left/right - dead center. Shot low - but on paper. Was not difficult to get aligned. What it needs, to earn 5 stars, is an "Instant" On. The delay and method for turning on the sight may mean this is not a good option for self defense applications. I tried this in 4 different holsters I already owned - a Fobus, a Crossbreed, a Galco and an Uncle Mikes. All fit as is - no need to modify anything.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp as a Razor We have been using the Razor red dot for a few months now and needles to say it out preforms every other red dot on the market. The cutting edge style, design and quality is second to none. We have been using it on our 2gun/3gun Rifles for the upclose targets which it made quick work of them. We have used it on our PCC and it has preformed better then any other red dot we ever used. The reticle is super crisp and clear for a easy target accusation. We now have added the Razor to our Rimfire competition firearms and needless to say it makes aquireing the Steel targets extremely fast and easy. We would highly recommend the Vortex Optics Razor red dot to anyone who want to get an edge on the competition.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great red dot I was torn between a red dot or a 1-6x scope for my duty rifle, decided to go red dot as it would allow more mobility while shooting and not limit me to the eye relief of a scope. I mounted it on a Bravo Co. Recce and it's been great. Very low profile, and when looking through it I don't really notice the frame around the glass, it's as if the red dot is just hovering above my top rail. It gets beat up a ton, and it's held its zero. I wouldn't put anything on my duty rifle that I wouldn't trust to work when it counts. My buddy is running one his glock 10mm and enjoying it as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and Rugged I actually acquired the razor red dot when I purchased a used bullpup and it came as part of the deal. It was a perfect match for the carbine, the dot is easy to pick up as you shoulder the rifle and is easily adjustable for any light condition. The only downside I see is that the adjustment buttons are pretty close to the face of the lens, and I've had to learn to be careful not to leave any smudges when making adjustments, but at the same time, this designs keeps them tucked away, so there is no worry of bumping them unintentionally. Overall, love this sight.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Would love Adjustable Dot at 1, 2, 3 and 4, levels Greta Razor red dot and clear view around the edges. I would love a smaller or even adjustable Red Dot, say 1,2,3 and 4 so can use out to 200 meters, as 3 covers entire man sized figure at 200. That makes a precise shot on head or chest almost impossible.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Razor on my Glock 41MOS, Incredible combination I have my 3MOA Razor mounted on my Glock 41MOS. I presently have close to 2000 rounds through this combination and it still amazes me in several ways. Eye relief and visability is crisp and clear. I can quickly and easily adjust the brightness depending on conditions, mainly outside or inside ranges. With that many rounds through it you would think I would have had to re-zero it by now, but I have not had to touch it or even tweek it yet from the original zero I set. I highly recommend this sight and plan on buying another one for my GLock 19.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 6 MOA Razor I shoot in OPEN class most of the time and wanted the same view on all three of my guns so I put one on my rifle on a 45 degree mount, one on my R&R Saiga and the third one on my STI 9mm. I did have a problem with the one on my pistol, it would go out after a couple shots. I contacted Vortex and they had me send it back to them, it was back on my gun in about 8 days!!! I paid for the shipping back to them and that was it, all else was covered by their OUTSTANDING warranty. Buy with confidence, theis is a great sight and even better company!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Dot! I placed the 3 moa Razor on my Marlin .45-70 1895 SBL. Due to my recent need for bi-focals, my shooting life was really suffering figuring out ways to compensate where I could still achieve a quick and accurate sight pic. Needless to say, after zeroing, I was making incredibly tight groups, without a rest between 50 and 100 yards. I need to take it out to a longer range yet, but what a joy shooting is again! For the money, this sight was worth every penny and I will be looking at Vortex 1st from now on for all my sighting needs.

    I have a SA XD 45 ACP 4 in, I was looking at mounting Red Dot Razor 6 MOA.  Would this be the best fit or would it be a viper/venom? Do I need a mounting plate? 

    Asked by: Joseph
    Choosing the red dot is personal preference as they all have different features. You will need a mounting plate, and you can get that from www.egwguns.com. If you would like to discuss the red dots, you can give us a call at 800-426-0048 ext 5.

    It is my understanding the Razor and the Venom come with different Picatinny mounts. Can you provide a height of both the Razor and the Venom when mounted with their respective mounts??

    Asked by: aswmg
    The optical height of the Venom with the included mount is 21 mm, while the Razor is 26.5 mm.

    Why would you put a red dot on your Viper spotting scope and which one would be best

    Asked by: silverone
    You can use a red dot for fast acquisition, any of our micro red dots would work well for that purpose.

    What is the height from the center of the Razor red dot window, to the bottom of the flat surface of the weaver low profile base when mated together...needing the overall height... thanks.

    Asked by: Paul

    Is the razor available without the Picatinny base? Is there a QD for the RAZOR?

    Asked by: JesusLover
    The picatinny base is removable. We have a riser mount that is quick release for use on an AR: http://www.vortexoptics.com/product/razor-red-dot-ar15-mount-with-quick-release-lever.

    Does the vortex razor co-witness with magpul back up iron sights?

    Asked by: Hastings92
    With our AR15 Riser Mount for Red Dots, you can get a lower 1/3 co-witness, we do not offer a mount that will give you absolute co-witness.

    Have you done any work with this sight while wearing NVGs?  Some of the other brands are too bright even at lowest power setting to use effectively.  With those the bloom effectively washes out the target.  

    Asked by: shades0991
    The Razor red dot is a bit brighter than I would recommend for use with NVGs.
