The Golden Eagle HD offers a unique set of features specifically designed for F Class and Bench Rest competition shooters. The 15-60x magnification range, ultra-precise 1/8 MOA adjustments and extremely fine, second focal plane reticle options help maximize precision on known-distance long-range targets. All these features and more are complimented by a top-tier optical system making for a super-sharp target picture down range and the ability to read mirage and other wind indicators accurately. Equally impressive, the Golden Eagle weighs in at a relatively light 29.5 ounces, helping shooters adhere to strict competition weight limits. When you’re going for gold in F Class or Bench Rest, go for the Golden Eagle to top your rifle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just buy one already! I’ve been running the golden eagle for almost 3 seasons of f-class shooting now and absolutely love it. I normal shoot 300 yard competition but have in fact shot 8,9, and 1000 yard competition as well and can contest that it tracks perfectly holds zero without a single issue. I have many fellow shooters who run other optics nightforce and sightron etc and on poor shooting days with a lot of mirage they have to power down to 30 power when I’m still fine at the 50-60x. I strongly feel for the $ and the quality you get with this optic it can not be beat hands down and highly suggest it!!

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 Great F-Class scope Bought this for F-Class and boy was I surprised how great it worked. Glass is exceptionally clear for the high magnification. I usually keep it between 30-40x depending on the mirage and it really helps you dial in on the x ring. I actually had it on 60x at 1000yrds this weekend but the conditions were absolutely perfect. I used it to shoot this 800yrd target 2 weeks ago. I'm a novice at F-class so I was pretty happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope for solo work Bought scope recently for my 6mm-06 Ackley. I have used a 60x spotting scope for 500-1k range shooting. Now I am able to quickly assess shot placement without the back and forth I have been accustom to with the use of a spotting scope. The scope is lighter than I expected, but still feels solid. Parallax adjustment seems to stop at 600 yards, however a decent 1k focus is still easily achievable. The male threads on the Aperture Stop Ring seemed flawed, even damaged the female threads on the sunshade, objective cover no longer screws smoothly into the sunshade. This is ok because I use a flip-cover. All in all, a great scope for long range. (And amazing at 100yard "showoffmanship") Attachments were disappointing for a scope of this quality, but the scope itself gets 5 stars.

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 4 out of 5 by from Review of Demo Model Golden Eagle I was fortunate enough to have the use of a Golden Eagle Scope for our Western Canada F-Class Championships back in July. Glass: As good as any Nightforce I have looked through. My eyes did not get tired over the course of the 4 days looking through this scope. Reticle design: for me this is the reticle of all has everything I want/need. Turrets: I'll start with the good on these. Tracking was dead on. Windage clicks were positive with good movement. Now to the bad. I am not sure if it is only because this is a demo model and it may have had the elevation knob adjusted by everyone that has touched it but this one was very mushy, clicks were not nearly as positive as the windage dial was. At times it was hard to determine whether or not the 1/8min up/down adjustment had actually taken place as I could not always feel the click when adjusting. When I got the rifle zeroed with the scope on, I had a hard time setting both the Elevation and Windage knobs to zero as the caps would grab the rubber O rings and turn the dial. For the Elevation I was able to finally pull the cap up and off of the turret and place it to zero. The windage cap had a harder time coming off and I did not proceed trying as I did not want to damage anything. When I finally did get the cap to turn and set it at zero I had already introduced a bunch of windage clicks into the scope so my wind zero ended up being a minute out from everyone else. Possible solutions/reasons for these problems: If the caps had grease under them and has since been wiped off, this would make the cap grab onto the O-ring. Overall I was very pleased with the scopes performance and clarity. I have since had the pleasure of handling a new scope and the Windage and Elevation clicks were very positive as would be expected. I look forward to getting my own Golden Eagle in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best F class scope period. I've been competing with a Golden Eagle in F-TR for the last year and half now. There almost aren't words that can describe how amazing this scope is. The clarity, the turrets, the reticle and having it include the aperture ring to lengthen the depth of focus to aid in reading mirage are all absolutely perfect. It's performance in less than optimal lighting conditions is also bar none. Twice now, Ive shot clean scores in cloudy, dark, rainy conditions. Let the performance of this scope do the talking though, back to back national championships in F class and the current 1000 yard 20 shot string record should be all you need to know about how reliable and repeatable the Golden Eagle is. I even got to have Ian (engineer who designed it) score for me while I shot my first 1000 yard clean which was a National Record at that time by an active service member!

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 Great product for price! Love this red dot does amazing job very light weight doesn't add any weight to the gun that I can notice. Only dislike and its not anything major that would keep me from buying it again is the buttons are small for my fat fingers and makes turning it off difficult sometimes but other than that absolutely amazing product absolutely love it would buy it again!

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 5 out of 5 by from Great package Got this a few days ago and it came with a sunshade, a different turret, and some covers. The scope is great for ranges 800+yards. Easy to sight in and adjust the zoom.

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 Truly Worth Every Penny When this scope released I was very interested in purchasing one for a couple of reasons and decided to make the purchase. I wanted a scope that I could use for competition shooting down the road that I knew would be a solid and have a GREAT warranty and this fit the bill. Additionally I wanted to get this scope as I'm an avid reloader and frequently test loads for various rifles and wanted to be able to easily see my target. So I mounted the scope in a quality quick detach scope mount to allow me to transfer it from rifle to rifle as fast and as easily as possible so now I can clearly see my target and call my shots without having to utilize a spotting scope as I had previously done. Testing the tracking of the scope by shooting box drills repeatedly in my accurized 6.5 Creedmoor has shown excellent tracking with zero discernable backlash in the adjustment. This scope as others have stated does have a fairly generous eye box, and does have spectacular clarity especially for the price and does so in a rugged yet fairly light package. I have multiple Vortex products and won't hesitate to buy another vortex come the time I need another optic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Just received this scope. After ensuring it was on the right rings for a Ruger Percision, first shot ensured I was on paper. Next 3 at 100 yds, had me zeroed at half inch POI, Took it to 300 yd range, using 1000 yrd steel targets, every shot was hitting exactly where I put it. Not just on the steel, but center body mass, head shot, shoulder shot. I couldn't miss. I would recommend this once to all.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what you need I’ve used this rifle scope for about a year now - and it’s exactly what you need. The mag values are clear all the way through, the tracking is dead on, the glass is like it isn’t there. I fell off a mountain, busted my scope up - sent it in for repairs. I offered to pay, claimed full responsibility and they shipped me a brand new one, no issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great addition The Razor is a great addition to the function of my AR-15. I have tried scoops and other types of red dots and was not happy. I put the Razor on my gun about 3 months ago and have been very impressed with it. I would like to tell everyone that the Razor works great looks great and to say get one for your self you will love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of features and extras in the box The Vortex Golden Eagle HD 15-60x has features that the F-class and Long Range Benchrest shooter really appreciates. It has a power range of 15x-60x with a 52mm objective. Vortex has kept the weight as low as possible and the cost very reasonable, I would say the best long range competition scope for the dollar..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex Razor Red Dot I bought this a few months ago and I love it! I mounted this on my Tactical Solutions pistol, target acquisition is so fast with the Razor. This has become the new favorite pistol of my entire family since adding the red dot. Thanks Vortex for another great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds up to .338 lap As a novice long range shooter i have been excited about the performance of this scope. My previous scope didnt hold up to the recoil of the .338 lap. So far im a little over 100 rnds with this scope and its true as the day i purchased. One of my favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sight! This sight is great quality and durable. I have the 6moa version on my CZ scorpion and it feels like a perfect fit for it. It’s super lightweight and low profile. The sight is nice and bright, it even works well in the Las Vegas sun!

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 Great backup for close quarters I bought this red dot just over a year ago. I actually use it on my AR with the vortex 45 degree offset mount. I do a lot of coyote hunting at night. After getting caught in a situation where the yote was only 20 yards away, I decided I needed something for close quarters. This works perfectly in this low light conditions. It's easy to adjust, easy to turn on quickly, and had many brightness levels for all different types of lighting situations. Hoping to buy one soon for my turkey gun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex Razor 3moa The Vortex 3 MOA Razor Red Dot is an amazing optic. I topped my Ruger GP100 with the Razor and continue to be amazed how much better my shooting has become. I confidently shoot beyond 50 yards, freehand, which I had never done before adding the Razor. I'm in my middle 50's, and for years a handgun front sight has been next to impossible to keep in focus. Problem solved! Plinking or hunting are again enjoyable and not an report! The 2032 batteries are inexpensive, readily available, and last a long time. Variable brightness handles all conditions from dark to full sun. The on/off feature of the Razor takes several seconds to turn the sight on or off. I suspect that is to stop inadvertently activating the light, which is unlikely given the size and location of the button. Great product that I highly recommend!
