Razor® AMG™ UH-1™ Holographic Sight — 1 MOA Dot

Introducing a new paradigm in Holographic Weapon Sights. The UH-1™ uses our revolutionary Fusion Hologram with Quantum Well Light Control (FHQ™) technology to deliver the first holographic sight to meld the durability and energy efficiency of a red dot with the impressive sight picture, zero-distortion, and reticle pattern of a holographic sight.

Note
Integrated Mount - Quickly attaches to any Weaver or Picatinny rail with the integrated mount.

Optical Features

Fully Multi-Coated Anti-reflective lens coatings on every lens surface allow for brighter views.
Brightness Settings 15 Levels
Unlimited Eye Relief Non-critical eye relief for rapid target acquisition.
Parallax Free All red dot and holographic sights will exhibit some small amount of parallax. Matching current industry practice, this small amount would be considered “parallax free” and will make a negligible difference in the UH-1’s performance.

Construction Features

Shockproof Rugged construction withstands recoil and impact.
ArmorTek Ultra-hard, scratch-resistant coating protects exterior lenses from scratches, oil and dirt.
Rear Facing Controls Easily power up and click through 15 levels of intensity.
Argon Gas Purged
FHQ™ Technology Virtually eliminates stray light emissions for stealth-shooter-signature in low light and prevents eyepiece glare common to other holographic sights.
Integrated Mount Quickly attaches to any Weaver or Picatinny rail with the integrate mount
Micro USB Port For use with LFP123A rechargeable battery.

Razor® AMG™ UH-1™ Battery Options

CR123A CR123A battery is included with the UH-1. This option will provide the best battery life for continuous use.
LFP123A The UH-1 also runs on the LFP123A, the high-end rechargeable version of the CR123A. Charge the battery using the Micro USB port and it will recharge while in the sight. This battery does not have as long of life for continuous use as a standard CR123A, but does provide the advantage of recharging.

You can also recharge LFP123A batteries in a separate recharger plugged directly in an AC wall outlet. If you have multiple batteries and an external charger you can always charge one battery while using the other.
RCR123A RCR123A battery. You can use this battery in a pinch. It is rechargeable, but it won’t take a full charge through the USB port and may fail after a couple of hundred rounds due to recoil and will not recharge. It will not damage the unit, but you will not get optimal performance from this battery.

The clean, highly versatile, purpose-built reticle creates optimal target engagement in a wide range of scenarios.

Subtension detail for Razor AMG UH-1.>

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LONG AWAITED ARRIVAL!!! Step 1. Hide it from wife Step 2. Sneak into the basement Step 3. Mount it to AR Step 4. Take pictures Ordered through B&H Photo in March. Shipped to me on 7/13 from B&H and arrived today (standard shipping). Everything I hoped for straight out of the box. It is my first Red Dot but I have been researching, reviewing, and test shooting anything I could get my hands on or friends were kind enough to let me use for the last year and a half. QD mount is brilliant. Optics and Reticle are clear, with amazing FOV. Now just need to get it to the range. Oh yeh - Step 5. call in sick tomorrow! #vortexforever

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex Huey I ordered in March, delivered 7/13 after Vortex finally released them. I installed it on my AR in .300 blackout and shot with it the next day, and it is absolutely everything that it is cracked up to be. I also have a different red dot (Which I USED to really like) on my 5.56 upper, and the much larger field of view in the "Huey" makes it so much easier to move and maintain sight picture. I bore-sighted at 25 yards, shot 3 rounds, moved the reticle once and was on center. The attached picture shows after sighting in with center dot at 25 yards, then this was my first shot off-hand at 10 yards using the lower triangle. Speaking as an eye doctor, there is an added benefit to the holographic sight: if your eyeglasses need to be changed (or if you need to be wearing them and you aren't) the reticle will look very jagged and out of focus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth The Wait I did a dealer preorder December 2016, it finally arrived today! Outstanding construction, solid with a pleasing weight. The reticle has ZERO visibility from the front, in all pics the optic is on. Co-witnesses with MBUS back up sights very nicely. I unfortunately moved to a state where I couldn't bring my AR, so it will have to wait until I visit her with her babysitter in a more freedom loving zip code. For now the Huey rests on my combat shotgun, can't wait to field test it! This is my 6th Vortex optic and third Razor. Couldn't be happier with this company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes a beating and beats out an eotech The optic performs flawlessly and is a major upgrade over an eotech in my opinion. The reticle is both fast and precise. The bottom triangle is a perfect compliment for close range shots on a rifle like the Tavor because of its high height above bore. I’ve had the priviledge to run it through several courses and it stood up to rough handling and performed very reliably. Works well with night vision. I will update review after the ultimate torture test on top of a scar 17.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for your buck Vortex never seems to fail. This product fits so well on my AR and for the price there isn't anything on the market that I would rather have. Eotech has some strong competition now and I'm riding with Vortex.

Would this sight well on a shotgun? Could you get a good weld

Asked by: Slug head
You could use it on a shotgun. It is designed to be lower 1/3 co-witness on an AR. On a traditional style shotgun it will sit a bit high to get a good cheek weld, but on something like a KSG it would excel.

Can this optic handle heavy recoil? What is the max it can withstand?

Asked by: Big bore shooter
That optic can withstand heavy recoil. We have not set a max caliber limit.

Hello! I am very interested in purchasing this product. However I went to pick one up at Academy and the reticle was very distorted on almost every setting. Not sure if product was defective as it would not focus and showed ghosting. Any input?

Asked by: CJC2020
It is likely that you have an astigmatism which is causing you to see the reticle as distorted. Please give us a call and we'd be happy to discuss this with you. 800-426-0048

Will this mount easily on my S&W M&P 15 sport 2 or should i purchase an additional accessory?

Asked by: Ryan N
The Razor AMG UH-1 will come ready to mount on your AR and you will not need anything extra.

Why is this called a "Huey" / "UH-1?" Does it have some relationship with the UH-1 Huey helicopter. If so, that is awesome.

Asked by: generalbedellsmith
We have a history of naming our optics using military names because our company was founded by a veteran. This optic does not have any relationship to the UH-1 Huey helicopter however.

Would you suggest this on an AK47? I have the Romanian Sar-1

Asked by: Rodiddy
The Razor AMG UH-1 would work great on an AK47, you will need a cheek riser in order to keep a cheek weld while looking through the optic.

Hi Mike. What are your thoughts on mounting the AMG UH-1 to a Ruger Super Redhawk .44 Mag for deer hunting? (Thanks to your advice I have the rail ordered for my Ruger.)

Asked by: Terry
The AMG UH-1 can be used on your revolver if you have a picatinny rail, it may sit up high but would definitely work.

I am putting a Picatinny rail on my Ruger Super Redhawk, would this be a good sight on my .44 Mag for deer hunting?

Asked by: Terry
The Razor AMG UH-1 would work for hunting on your revolver.
