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 Love It ! Needing an optic for duty/home defense use, I read over countless reviews and watched numerous videos on what to get. Due to the quick target acquisition, superior field of view, Vortex's warranty and service, and my results with my other Vortex products, I chose the Razor AMG UH-1. Took it out for the first time today. Sighted in easily and immediately went to hitting steel at 50, 100, and 200 yards shot after shot. Once my buddies (one a former Marine and other a LEO) used it they were both amazed how easy it is to see and hit targets quickly and accurately. Both immediately asked me for the model so that they could purchase their own. HIGHLY recommend this for anyone looking for a red dot or holographic type sight. 5 stars ++ Thanks Vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic optic I did alot of research before I purchased this optic for platform I was going to mount it to. Right out of the box you can tell this optic was built for long days on the range, or down range. It's a little heavy but nothing that you cant handle all day either, the glass quality is amazing. The buttons function awesome, tactile so you know you made a adjustment. The reticle is great for quick acquisition, I love the way it's set up makes for easy shooting at different rnages. The QD mount is awesome makes switching platforms really easy and holds its zero remarkably well. Deffinetly a great optic would recommend do anyone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great except the mount Clear glass, nice reticle and brightness, no complaints except the mounting base. Rocking the optic side to side results in movement between the QD base and optic body, no matter how tight the 4 screws in the base are. Customer service says there are springs in the base and side to side movement is ok; I say show me any other top tier optic where movement is acceptable. Adjustment knobs for windage and elevation should also be recessed or covered, as adjustments can be made simply by pushing on it with a finger and twisting.

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 Holographic sight on the Market! I got this Optic a month ago, and love it. A very nice open sight with a very good glass and red dot reticle. I works very well on my Savage MSR-15 Recon with the VMX-3T MAGNIFIER. Love it not shocks, that its water proof and fog proof. This is better than Eotech with the Warranty being much better too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Go To CQB Optic I picked up the UH-1 to go on my most recent SBR build. I’ve ran over 5k rounds through the SBR suppressed with this optic without any hiccups. It survived a pair of carbine courses without any issues. FOV is excellent, along with the clarity of the reticle. I believe it has the edge over my Eotech’s for reticle clarity with my astigmatism. It’s held zero without any issues from day one. My only request for future changes would be for the reticle zeroing adjustments. They’re a little soft when you make the click adjustments. To make sure nothing has changed, I simply put a white paint marker index mark on them for simple verification. Overall, I’ve been very impressed and will be adding a few more to the stable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The EOTech Killer! I have an EOTech XPS2 mounted on a carbine of mine. Comparing this to it, I am amazed how Vortex AT LEAST matched, if not exceeded the quality of my EOTech holo for even less of a price. I personally love the aesthetics of the AMG and its features. Crystal clear glass and offers a beautiful projected reticle every time. Anyone seeing blurs and fuzzy images most likely has astigmatism. Vortex, keep up the good work! Lifetime warranty AND USA made. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sight! I purchased this holographic with the VMX-3T magnifier and put it on my Daniel Defense DD5V2 and it's pure magic. Reticle is fantastic, clear view all the way. I'm very happy with this product and recommend this for all skill levels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Justified all expectations It`s very good quality, transparant and solid. I shot together with it in the rain several times, it is waterproof, it`s regulated simply. I advise it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EOTECH Killer- “Garand Thmb” I Immediately thought of the AMG UH-1 when I was looking for an optic well suited for my 10.3” Ballistic Advantage AR-Pistol build. After receiving the optic (also with the vortex 3x magnifier) I took it to the range to put it through its paces. The performance when better than I could’ve imagined. I ran the optic with both a 223 Wylde upper and 300 blackout upper with no issues at all. The glass clarity combined with the large range of view and crisp reticle made transitioning from target to target effortless and pleasant. Controls are well thought out and easy to manipulate even with a magnifier directly behind it. During shooting I was able to remove the optic use the quick detach lever and reattach on either upper with minimal to no zeroing loss. All in all another amazing product from vortex. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a reflex sight for there SBR or AR Pistol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waited 15 months for 2 of them I was so thrilled when this optic launched, I pre-ordered 2 of them and waited patiently for 15 months for them to call my number! Since I received them, they have been loved, abused, run through classes in all weather conditions. These are built like a TANK! They're a bit bulky, but they do a phenomenal job! I loaned one to a friend who struggles with astigmatism, he liked the optic so much he bought one!. These things sell themselves, their resilient as can be, and backed by an outstanding warranty! I have continued to use them as my go-to optic for CQB scenarios.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from UH-1 is amazing!!! I bought this a while back and put it on my 300 Blackout for Pig hunting in Texas. Man am I glad I did. This sight is by far the best holographic sight I have ever used. I consider this far superior to Eotech and Aimpoint. Being in Law Enforcement I have used them all. The clarity is amazing. Picking up the sight on the move is effortless. I could not be happier with this sight. Bouncing around on a jeep in the hill country I put this thing through it paces. I will definitely be getting another one soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bulky but great field of view. I was up in the air between this and an Eotech. I chose the UH-1 because I have several other Vortex optics (Sparc2, Spitfire 1X, 1-6 StrikeEagle) and I've never had a problem with any of them. Good: FOV is great, nice and wide. I like the option if using a rechargeable battery, my safe has power and USB ports so it'd be easy to set up. Integrated QD Mount is great. Good with astigmatism. Bad: BIG! This thing is a behemoth. Fat boy also likes to chug batteries. Looks only a mother could love. Overall I'm impressed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Razor AMG UH-1 Just purchased this sight and I'm very happy with it. I have used other holographic sights and this one is hands down the best. Great sight picture, crisp recticle, clear glass, and solid. Vortex is great company that cares for their customers. I'm proud supporter of Vortex and will be for life. Thanks for making a fantastic product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and Accurate Never in my life have I mounted an optic and felt so comfortable, so fast as I did with the Razor AMG UH-1. The integrated AMG mounting system is brilliant. I wear corrective lenses and was a little concerned that the reticle wouldn't be as clear and easy to pick up as a traditional red dot optic...that was not the case. Leaving both eyes open made for super fast target acquisition and lightning fast follow up shots. Considering the features, integrated mounting system and second to none sight picture, the UH-1 is an extremely good value for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid! I've owned this optic for about a year now. After regular long days at the range and continued shooting I am thoroughly impressed. The simplicity and ease of use make this a great optic. Great glass clarity and incredible sharpness in comparison to other optics in its class make it a front runner in my book for its intended use. The reticle is clear and easily distinguishable with the eye, even though it is a holographic site. I have not experienced any blurring or dimming. The build quality is extremely rugged and durable.I have and will continue to use and recommend this optic to anyone in the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Homerun! The UH-1 was the best solution when finishing my custom TAC-12 3-Gun shotgun. It has never failed and kept its zero. I cant say we're not rough on our equipment. It's a no brainer with the best warranty out there. My optics are one less thing I have to worry about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great optic for a carbine. I knew I wanted this sight when it was announced, but finally got around to picking one up. I wish I had picked one up sooner. I run several different tube red dots on my rifles and they are good. However after using the UH-1 I don't know if I want to go back. The field of view for this optic is amazing. The red dots do not feel the same anymore and I miss the openness of the field of view that the UH-1 has. I recommend the UH-1 for anyone running a carbine. I can't wait to use it in a match next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Red Dot for the money The UH-1 is one of 10 red dots that I have owned in the past 2-3 years, and is by far the best for the money IMO. The glass is super clear and seems to help contrast a lot, the reticle is the best on the market right now, and the features are exactly what you need. Quick detach and install that locks up firm, more than enough illumination settings, the window is a great size, and it's built like a tank. The UH-1 founds it's home on my "farm" firearm to fend off the predators and protect the flocks. The one and only improvement I think that could be made is NV compatible! Hint Hint.
Date published: 2019-05-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great option I really like the features and construction. The best part to me is the minimal viewing obstruction surrounding the window. Only complaint I can think of is the reticle appears slightly less crisp than the EOTech I have. Considering there isn't many holographic sights on the market, it is nice to see a high quality alternative to the EOTech.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex for Life! Love the Huey! Put it in my wife's PCC and she loves it too. Got 6 different pieces of glass and can't wait until I get the Razor Gen III. Great products, great people, and Wisconsin based on top of it. All that had me "Vortex for Life!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the Money I was very hesitant when buying this optic, but let me tell you that it blew me away and my friends are impressed with it. I love the profile of the optic and its field of view. This optic took me no less than 6 minutes to zero at 50yds. Targets were easy to pick up thanks to the reticle design for target acquisition. I bought the magnifier as a package and it is definitely a great pair. I was skeptical at first, but when you are getting good groupings at 200yds at a target the size of a 10x10 sheet, then you know this is worth the buy. Also, the device has 15 stops of brightness. The further your target the lower you can dim it for better accuracy. Do not buy a second-hand product from eBay, just buy it brand new from a good distributor. One thing I like is hearing that if you have a problem with the product that Vortex will work with ya and very generous when it comes to satisfying customers with their products, but I haven't had a problem with my product at all. Don't be scared of some of the negative reviews, because a lot are saying that if you have any type of astigmatism that it will cause you to see ghosting or double reticles. I will tell you that I have astigmatism in both eyes and I wear glasses. However, I can still shoot fine without my glasses using this reticle. I will also say that it would be wise to also get the magnifier with this purchase if you are nearsighted so that it helps you. This product alone has made me a firm believer in Vortex's products I am definitely going to support them and purchase their products loyally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite optic! Great build quality. Get one Have owned for about 6 months. Love the looks, function and reticle. Has a solid mount and great features. Excited about the charge port but I have not got the right battery to use it yet. I will definitely be purchasing more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liked it so much I bought two! I run the "Huey" on my Saint edge with the VMX-T3 and and by itself on my Canebrake. I still cannot get over how nice this optic is. The durability, versatility and quality of the "Huey" leaves nothing to be desired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great holo sight! I have had mine since they came out. Mounted on a 10.5 pistol. Love this uh-1 compared to the eotech. Have not had a single issue. Will buy more of them for other guns. American made too!
Date published: 2019-05-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best holographic on the market! I bought 2 weeks ago and put it to the test. Ran about 5,000 rounds using the UH-1. It was easy to acquire a fast sight picture, easy to zero, and holds up to the name brand of Vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Clydesdale of red dots. You don’t wanna be aiming through a delicate little miniature pony on your ar-15. You want a real workhorse. Something that can pull it’s own weight and take the abuse of any situation you wind up in. Dump it a barrel during a 3gun match, drop it on some bloody asphalt during a gun fight, and then pick it back up and continue making accurate shots. Hitch your rifle to this bad boy and never look back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First Holographic I bought this optic for my Sig Sauer M400 tread. This is my fourth vortex optic and I love the Whole family. Looks and feels very quality. I didn’t give this product 5 stars only because I had one problem. After about 2 months of having it mounted, the optic would flash dim to bright when it was turned on. recently I took the battery out and put it back in, and the function seems normal. With that being said, absolutely love this optic and Vortex nation. And if there were ever any real problems, that’s why we have the vortex VIP warranty.
