At nearly 1/4 pound lighter than the original Razor HD Gen II 1-6x24, the "E" (Enhanced) model allows for quicker transitions between targets and less arm fatigue during long days on the range. Perfect for the AR platform, the Gen II-E 1-6 is a top-tier optical solution for short to medium range tactical applications. Optically, it delivers the highest level of clarity, resolution, color accuracy, light transmission and edge-to-edge sharpness. True 1x on the low end is complimented by an ultra-forgiving eyebox with generous eye relief for a heads-up-display-like sight picture and a daylight bright illuminated center dot in the reticle for extremely fast target acquisition in close quarters. Ultra-sleek and built like a tank on a 30mm, aircraft-grade aluminum tube, the Razor HD Gen II-E 1-6x24 features ultra-low profile, capped windage and elevation turrets for streamlined performance. Zero-resettable turrets offer 50 MOA (20 MRAD) of adjustment in a single turn, ensuring ample travel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down the best competition scope available After shooting 3 gun for a few years with budget optics, I finally decided to get off my wallet and upgrade to a Razor. I always felt like my optic was holding me back on long range stages and this scope definitely has helped me step up my game in that department. At my first match with the optic I got multiple first round hits out to 600yds and won a side stage requiring an ultra precise 50yd shot. Since then I've also used this optic for coyote hunting and it has excelled there as well. The super clear glass, wide field of view, and JM-1 reticle make shots on coyotes from point blank to 300+ yards quick and easy. Like me, if you buy this scope you'll be left wondering why you waited so long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Product I am a law enforcement professional working with a Precision Rifle Team. We evaluated this scope against another reputable manufacturer's equivalent product. The Razor was very impressive. Ease of use, the huge eye-box, glass clarity, bright center dot were just some of the features which were stand outs compared to the competition. We used this scope during a Severe Angle course and easily made hits from 50 yards to 780 yards (corrected range). At CQB ranges it runs as quickly as a red dot. We are attempting to outfit the entire team with this scope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 1-6 on the market I am beyond happy with this optic. I am a professional 3-gun shooter, firearms instructor and US Army sniper so I'm a tough customer but Vortex knocked it out of the park with this scope. The clarity us unreal, the eye-box is very forgiving and the dot is very bright for rapid close-quarters engagements. Mine has the MRAD reticle and so far the subtensions seem accurate. I really love the low, capped turrets. This is just a very well thought out and designed optic that I'd be just as comfortable taking into combat as I am running it on the range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best AR type scope. An exaggerate, ultra clear HD field of view scope for AR platform type of rifle; or dangerous games or situations where a very wide view is a most. Excellent for ranging targets at its maximum magification. Illuminated center for dark targets or low light conditions. Built like a tank.Perfect color.Best scopes ,best company ,best service and the piece of mind of life time warranty on such high end optics .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When only the best will do. Went from the Viper PST to the Razor. Both scopes are built to last and have incredible clarity and function. Holds true even with the abuse of 3-Gun. The warranty gives me the comfort knowing they stand behind the product and if somthing happends, they will take care of me. I use the same scope in both Tac-optics and Unlimited. I can use anything. I look to Vortex first as they dont just have the best products, but sell themselves with it. Thanks guys

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible scope This scope will change your life and I mean it. This scope was my first venture into premium optics. For years I had "good enough" optics. Then I purchased the Razor HD 1-6. People say to spend money on optics and now I know why. This scope ruined me for inferior optics. I have since upgraded other scopes I have into the Razor line. There is just so much that is awesome about this scope. The eye box is huge, the glass is clear, and the construction is bulletproof. The illuminated reticle is day bright. I actually rarely turn it on because there is so much light transmission. Anyone that has looked through the scope has commented on how clear it is. I was at a public range and another shooter asked to looked through it. After he was finished he commented that his wife was going to be angry because he was going to buy the scope immediately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional clarity After researching competing riflescopes in the sam magnification by other large manufactures. I made the decision to purchase this optic back in February based on the superior edge to edge clarity, and fantastic eye relief distance I know it would be a great fit for my Scar 17. I was unsure which flip caps would fit at the time but after a few quick emails and a phone call to Vortex's professional and informative customer support I also ordered the correct flip caps as well as the optional throw lever which I highly recommend. Once the scope leveled was mounted to my Scar 17 I couldn't wait to zero it at the local range. It took less than 9 rounds to zero the optic at my preferred range from a seated bench position. This optic is robust, the finish is amazing and in good color taste, and i would not hesitate to purchase another or one with a greater magnification for another rifle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing Else Can Compare My first 3Gun match I had a scope that lost zero. Luckily, there was a Vortex Sponsored Shooter on my squad that let me borrow their back up rifle topped with this scope. I knew that my next optic purchase would be from Vortex. After buying a Strike Eagle when they first came out and competing with that for a year, I saved up the money for a Razor HD Gen II and fell in love. The glass is so clear and crisp. Shortly after buying this scope I cleaned up the long range stage at the TX3GC in 2017. Vortex is a joy to work with and order from and their customer service is second to none! I'm a Vortex customer for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all around scope I’ve owned! Put this on my scar and absolutely the best choice I could’ve gone with. Originally looked at other scopes that I would need to have a red dot with as well but this has the versatility to not need any other optics. You can feel the quality of the scope when you pick it up and see how crystal clear the glass is. Perfect all around optic for many platforms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s seriously like watching HD tv I hate myself for not buying this sooner. Looking back after buying this scope I felt like I was previously shooting with contact lenses that were soaked in dirt the night before. it should be illegal to own anything other then vortex. No but seriously the glass quality is amazing, I use this for 3 gun with no problems out past 600yards at a match. And now that the gen 2E is even lighter it’s even better!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing scope with amazing glass I have the a refurbished razor hd gen 2 which is sightly heavier than the E version. The extra weight adds character in my opinion. This scope is packed with features! Easy to use and has a red dot illumination that burns brighter than the sun. The main thing that I like the most is the glass. The glass is so clear that I can clearly see the squirrels at my yard going down to pound town.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best LPVO ever! This is my 2nd vortex razor 1-6, I have both the “E” and the original. I always wanted a lighter weight model and vortex listened. The JM-1 reticle is fantastic! The simplicity of the reticle makes hiring targets at 600m a breeze. The glass is top notch. And for a street price of $1300, you can not find a better low power variable optic. The only reason I give it a 4 out of 5 is due to a issue I had with the turrets not adjusting. Retuned to vortex and had it fixed and back into my hands in 2 ish weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough optic with clear glass I mounted my Vortex Razor HD Gen II 1-6 on my SCAR 17S a few years ago. SCAR 17's are notorious for eating optics. I have to say after several thousands of rounds, this optics performs flawlessly. Glass is super clear with no distortion around the edges. The reticle (MRAD) is superb. Definitely recommend this optic to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improvement to the Gen II- success I owned the Razor Gen II 1-6 in the past. Glass was best in its class (~$900-$1600 street cost bracket) and you'll be hard pressed to find a better LVPO for the money. Glass was nearly top shelf, illumination is superb, turret clicks are solid and precise, reticle is clean and simple. The scope was even submitted to USSOCOM for a squad variable procurement trial. So why did I sell it? The weight. Well, now they have the E model and the best overall LVPO (IMO, minus the weight of the Gen II) just got better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope for dangerous game Used this scope on my Custom .375 H&H. Used it hunting Cape Buffalo and plains game in Mozambique. The red dot and the magnification choices are well suited to this type of hunting. Shot one buffalo at 40 yards and another at 100 yds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great galss Got this at a killer price and it goes awesome with my 16” Criterion barrel. Clear crisp reticle, day bright. Little heavy of a scope but that’s no biggie!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beast This thing is great. Even though my old strike eagle is nice, you can feel the difference in quality. The optics I'd say are probably 20-30% more clear than the strike eagle. The best part though, is both eyes can be open at any magnification! The red dot is crystal clear and basically functions as a normal red dot, it's that good. Only gripes would be weight, and no lens covers.. It's built like a tank though, so if you're going into a warzone you could probably take this with you. Still 5 stars though, better than any scope I've seen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than expected I bought the Razor HD gen II 1-6x24 riflescope this past year around the time that this new Razor HD gen II-E was released. I read many reviews that the weight of the riflescope I have was too heavy, but I have no problem with the weight of this riflescope. I cannot wait to get my hands on an even lighter gen II-E since it addresses the only “problem” with the riflescope it is replacing being even lighter. This is for sure the best riflescope I have for competition and it holds the lifetime warranty vortex is known for. Awesome product Vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best of the Best This is one of the best LPVO’s you can get on the market today. Of course there are some that people consider to be better from Nightforce, Leupold, etc. but those come in at $1,000 more than this. The Razor HD Gen II’s are the best value you can get, and have been proven in the field by not just civilians and LE, but the military too. It has everything you need and nothing you don’t. It’s extremely simple and intuitive to use, just as fast as a red dot on 1x (with practice) with an extremely bright reticle, and bombproof. It is a bit heavy for its class but that is due to its durability, and you get used to it quickly. What you do have to keep in mind is what this isn’t. It isn’t a precision optic. It’s for being able to stretch out to medium distances effectively while also being flexible enough to engage targets at very close ranges. It’s not a red dot and any magnified optic never will be. However, this is one of the best LPVO’s out there in terms of eye relief, eye box forgiveness, etc. that makes it as close to a red dot as possible while still being magnified. Overall, LPVO’s are a series of compromises, and these have been the best at finding that compromise. This is like the gold standard of LPVO’s and although I like to try other stuff, I always find myself coming back to the Razor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Active shooter response Bought the scope a month ago. Just got to sight it in using Sean Ryan’s 36 yard zero target. Man.....! This scope is the awesome . Using Seans zero I was able to punch 5 rounds through the same hole at 50 yards using our duty ammo (gold dot 62 grain, 223). I was using my American defense 14.5 with a surefire war Comp. Mounted this bad boy on a 1.93 scope mount from American defense and made running drills easier. Switching from close quarters to long range is a snap. I will never go back to using red dots after this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big step up in my long range 3gun game Came to this scope from a strike eagle. When I first picked it up the eyebox, field of view, and clarity absolutely blew me away. Stepped outside and the light transference blew me away again. Literally went to a local match the next weekend and had my best finish ever. Absolute game changer of an optic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this thing I've been using vipers on most of my setups but grew a set and spent some money to get a razor. Its heavier than my other 1-6s but glass quality is great. Only put about 500 rounds through at platform and no issues. Dont think I'll buy any other brand in future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for the price Awesome glass clarity combined with it being bombproof makes this scope an easy choice for me, very pleased that I bought this a month ago and for the price you pay you get a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite optic I use this scope for work, and after a multiple trips with it and nonstop training, it has never let me down. Bombproof optic and I recommend it to all of my buddies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clearest glass I've ever used. Have this on an AR-10 which I do not shoot as often as I should but every time I pull it out for some range time I'm almost blown away by it's clarity. Illumination is so bright if you have it set to high indoors it will bleed to the surrounding crosshair. If this happens just turn it back a few clicks but that is my only minor complaint and it's more user error than anything. Love the bronze finish. Looks as great as it performs. Great scope. Period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply awesome I shouldn't have waited so long to purchase. Clear, bright glass with color that "pops", bright illuminated dot, near-1X performance, excellent build quality with beautiful anodized finish, positive turret clicks, simple and effective reticle (VMR-2 MRAD). The weight reduction of the "E" model means the scope isn't perceptively heavier than using a larger red dot (replaced and Aimpoint CompM4s) when mounted on a lightweight carbine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing optic This stays on my “duty rifle” I don’t operate. But I’d like to think so. This guy is built like a tank!! Love how they’ve reduced the weight in it and still seems just as durable as the old model. Glass has amazing edge to edge clarity. Red dot is bright. And I could beat up folks with this optic alone... it’s sturrrdy. As everyone knows,, the magnification ring really needs a throw lever. It’s stiff.. first focal would be nice

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great LPVO I bought this scope after much deliberation. I wanted to spend less, but this scope was touted as one of the best in class by so many people, and if SOCOM chose it, it must be tough. I didn't want FFP on a 1-6 because I didnt like anyone else's reticle and illumination design. The Vortex Razor 1-6 GenII-e is awesome. The scope body seems to disappear to the eye when looking through it, the reticle is crisp and helps focus the eye on the center. If you turn on the illuminatee dot it's definitely Aimpoint bright and easy to track. 1x is a pretty forgiving eye box and 6x is actually fair too. It's s little heavier and the magnification adjustment is stiff enough to pretty much require a quick throw lever, but it's an awesome optic. I love the illumination adjust wheel and the capped turrets. It's great. Would like to check out the new PST Gen II 1-6 as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glass that has to be experienced to believe I didn't really understand how different glass could affect my ability to shoot. I was using a lower-priced optic from another company and was always happy with it, right up until I was shooting into shadows from an poor shooting position. Suddenly I understood how poor the eye relief on that scope was. How poor the glass was - I was literally unable to make out the target (steel spinner at 50 yards in deep shadows in the woods). Later a friend took me back to that target. It was darker than before. I sighted through the Razor and had no problems at all finding the target. The glass on this optic is simply superb. The fit and finish are great. Love the reticle, the illumination being only the fine red dot makes for perfect short range engagements. You need to see this to believe it and once you shoot with one you won't want anything less - I know I don't!
