The high-end Razor red dot is an open-top reflex sight built for top-tier performance and incredible versatility. The large, clear and crisp window provides edge-to-edge sharpness with a wide field of view and is protected by a thick and durable aluminum housing. Dot size is available in 3 MOA or 6 MOA for your choice between a more precise aiming point on a rifle or one that’s extremely quick to acquire on a handgun. Side-load battery tray makes for quick battery changes without removing the sight from your firearm. A great fit for rifles and shotguns. Rugged and durable, the Razor comes in at 1.3 ounces (2.4 ounces with its included, low Picatinny mount).

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 4 out of 5 by from Great sight for aging eyes 6 moa sight mounted on glock 17 used mainly for competition. Clear glass of the right size. Dot is crisp with good brightness settings. Good battery life and good battery access. I did have a problem with the first sight I purchased--sight would occassionally shut off during a string of fire. Returned sight to Vortex and they sent me a new sight. Customer service is top notch! The only reason for not rating a 5, the push button controls are awkward to manipulate, at least for me. A friend also has a Razor and he does not have an issue with this. Great value for the money.

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!!
