Poised to fulfill the needs of even the most extreme long-range shooters, the Razor HD has the features, build quality and optical performance to extend your maximum capability. Animpressive optical system offers the crisp image quality necessary to pick apart the landscape for targets at extended range, while the 35mm, one-piece tube allows for 125 MOA (36 MRAD) of adjustment to dial them in precisely. No scope in the Vortex line has this much travel, and thanks to the integrated, mechanical RZR zero stop, you can dial all day knowing you’ll always have an accurate, repeatable and solid return to zero between stages or at the end of any range session. A glass-etched, first focal plane reticle makes for quick and easy holdovers, range estimations or calls for correction for a fellow shooter on any magnification.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic scope and still one of my favorites! This scope is one of my favorite for long-range shooting! It has one of my favorite reticles, easy to set up zero stop, nice crisp and audible turrets, and the clarity, depth of field, contrast, and lack of chromatic aberration make it a great all around scope. I've used it for hunting, long range practice at the range, and the 20X top end magnification and huge amount of elevation adjustment makes it perfect for really stretching out those shots! I've owned two of these now (moa and mrad versions) and I wouldn't hesitate to buy a third.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intro into high end glass This was my first quest into high end optics when I first began competing, having only used middle of the road scopes that rhyme with Leopold prior to making the switch. The glass clarity is insane, the reticle is crisp, and the moving parts work EXACTLY like they should. Having this on a 300wm for several years loosened the zero stop screws right before a big match... however two emails with a very knowledgable staff member later, I had it fixed myself and back to the range the next day. My only regret about this purchase is that I didn't get two......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable optic Got the Razor HD about a month ago for a 6.5 Creedmoor and finally had a chance to take it out...unbelievable, its like looking into another world...the turrets are perfect, each click is well defined so you arent guessing if you dialed the right windage or elevation...the illumination on the reticle is amazing and it just looks awesome sitting on top of my rifle...i purchased the precision matched rings with it and im really glad that i did...all in all this is the best scope ive ever bought or used...i see another one in my future for a different rifle i plan to buy later this year...Vortex just keeps coming with the hits and i hope they always do...in my opinion, better than any Nightforce ive used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Glass and Great Product! I purchased this optic last year and had it mounted on a precision rifle. My local range is only good for 500yrds and this optic allows me to dial it in perfectly and make contact with no problem. While removing the battery cover I scared it up pretty bad and when I reached out to Vortex explaining my error they shipped me a new fresh cap within a week no questions asked. I am very satisfied and am looking to push it further but need to travel to make that happen and time right now is now is not on my side. Maybe I will get in a precision class this year to do just that! Overall this is a great optic and has a great company behind it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid optic in a mid tier budget range Given that you can buy these with normal retail running in the $1300 range. And you can buy them used for close to $1100 range these are amazing optics for the price. The zero stop feature is a very useful, idiot-proof way to make sure you don't get a full revolution off when dialing your optic back down to your zero. I've been running this scope since September of 17 and it has been a real joy. I switched from a leupold mk 4 er/t 6.5-20. Having a larger adjustment range, 10mil revolutions and a much better ebr 2c reticle choice I was extremely pleased with the upgrade. Only reason I am getting rid of it is to upgrade to the Vortex AMG

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best long range scope! I purchased this scope a few months ago to start shooting distances of up to 1760 yards out of my Stealth Evolution 6.5 creedmoor. I have to say the clarity alone sells this scope along with the large 35mm tube allowing for an outstanding 125 MOA elevation turret. Theoretical alone slows me to reach out with ease of 1000 yards with a 100 yard zero with out ever having to turn the elevation turret. Scope has in my opinion a very solid finish as well. This is a must have scope for long range shooting or even all hunting applications. This is the best warranty out there a long with exceptional customer service I don’t know why you would ever look past the vortex brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Scope! I have been using a Burris XTRii 4-20 for about 2 years. I got a new rifle and it needed a new scope. I Looked hard at another Burris, Nightforce SHV, and The Gen 1 razor. I LOVE my burris, but opted to go with the Gen 1 Razor for my new scope. WOW, This thing is amazing. Its very clear, tracks well, is lighter than the Gen 2, has a great reticle, and just flat looks cool! The RZR zero stop is awesome and stupid easy to use. Over all I am super happy with my purchase and would highly recommend this optic. Great scope for the hunter and tactical shooter. I want to buy another to have 2 matching optics. Thanks vortex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best decision I ever made Bought this scope for a future purchase of a 6.5 Creedmoor. While waiting for that I decided to put this on my 22-250 for coyote hunting this season. Best decision I ever made. It's amazing what a quality scope will do for your success. I was able to hit coyotes from 50 to 600 hundred yards with ease. Tracking was dead on. Clarity was great and with the illuminated reticle it was a breeze to see your mark at low light. I was even able to pick up the lead I need for running coyotes much easier. I see a future purchase for the Creedmoor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product and Company Bought a Razor HD and realized the illuminated reticle was too bright. Called and explained the issue...Vortex sent me a call tag. 4 Days later a brand new in the box scope arrived at my doorstep. This company knows customer service!! Best I have seen from any industry. They always answer the phone right away, speak English, and no wait. I even know a few of them by first name now. Since then I have purchased a Crossfire II hog hunter, and all my rings...waiting on my flare illuminated bubble level, and I cant wait to pick up the new Fury Bi-nocs. I am always skeptical about reviews and never write them but I feel this company deserves one. Keep the good work, and maintain your affordable products

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope from a great company! I'm using this scope on an AR-10 platform chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor. I'm using this rifle in local PRS type matches engaging targets out to 1025 yds. Optical clarity is awesome compared to one of my other big name scopes. The inclusion of a bubble level and scope caps was also a pleasant surprise. The only negative I have for this scope is the 35mm tube limits your choices on rings. A 34mm tube would have opened up a lot more options on rings and would have allowed me to use rings that I already had on hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still one of the absolute best Yes this is the Gen 1 Razor...but does that matter??? ABSOLUTELY not! I took advantage of the Military pricing and got this bad boy in about 3 months ago... I have had it out to the range about 10 times...1200 yard hits are easy as it tracks flawlessly! Even it being the Gen 1 it still has better glass than the high end Kahles that sponsors my range...I am extremely happy with it and won't have to spend money on Glass again...Thanks Vortex for looking out for your Vets!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny!! After tons of research and reading and asking questions I decided to get this Razor HD and I am definitely impressed. It's one of the best scopes I've ever looked through and cannot be beat for the price. The clarity from low to high end magnification is amazing and the turrets and zero stop are perfect. I have this mounted on a match rifle and it's a great combo. I will be and am recommending this scope to everyone. A friend looked through it at the range and liked it better than his scope that he just bought for almost double the price. Cannot recommend it enough!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid scope I have had this rifle scope now for about 4 years and it’s been great. The only failure to date is the illumination for the reticle no longer works. This is the toughest and heaviest scope I have ever owned and it’s been on my 300 win mag for long range for a year or 1000 rounds and works great. Currently on my 6.5CM RPR. The glass is I hair better than my pst 6-24 and about the same as my hst for resolution. I haven’t peaked through the razor gen 2 but the glass could be better. I have looked through a friends gen 2 pst and the glass seems a bit better and brighter to my eye but this would last longer hands down. I would say if it’s just a range rifle that has almost no chance of get beat around I would get the gen 2 pst.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope. I bought this scope about 1 year ago. I currently have it mounted to a 5R in .308... It's an awesome scope in my opinion. Heavy duty construction. Repeatable turrets w/ obvious clicks. Holds zero no matter how many times I spin it up and down. I took it to montana in October 2016 and camped in the mountains for 2 weeks.. No matter what the weather conditions were, the glass was very clear. In my opinion it's easily comparable to Nightforce. I plan on buying the Gen 2 this year. Would recommend to a friend. (I'm unable to upload a photo at the moment)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I actually own this optic and have been running it on my 308 for 3 years now, I love how crystal clear the glass is l, especially in low light from 100 to 1000 yards. It's literally changed the way I can shoot! Just adjust the parallax which is easy to find and dial your elevation, adjust for wind which is super easy with the ebr2 reticle and gently squeeze and listen for the sound of the steel ring, but no really if you want an optic as good as the top of the line for 2/3 the price then this is your scope! Tons of windage adjustment as well. 5 stars for sure

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It survived my son I had you're product mounted on my Winchester model 70 when I loaned my son the rifle for his hunt. But I'd be lyring if I said he's not his fathers son, he hunted solo this year and we'll just like I did the first time I went without my pops he was care free. He didn't shoot anything but my rifle got killed, it rode in the bed of the truck long enough unprotected that the the one side of the rifle looked sanded and hammered, the optics looked camouflaged if camo was black and silver. He knew he had messed up when he brought it home because it went straight in the safe, well when I pulled it out I was ready to beat my boy like a red headed step child but instead we argued and took it to the range to see if it still shoots straight and lord behold that ducking rifle and optic still gave me baseball size groupings. I made my son buy me a new rifle gave him is work of art but your darn right I moved the optic over to my new one even if she's a little haggard, a little sanding and spray pain cleaned her up again, I'll have it on one of my rifles till the day I day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection This scope has everything I could want. I bought this model before the gen2 was around. I questioned if I would want to "upgrade" when it released. No need to change. I do love the gen 2 that some of my PRS friends run on their rifles, but the Gen 1 gets it done. I actually like the high turret on this scope. It helps me to make fast adjustments gripping the top of the turret without covering up the numbers and get a good grip on the turret in bad conditions. Also the 35mm tube with 128moa adjustment allows you to have some fun well past a mile!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do all End All! I have had this optic for approximately 2 years now. It is sitting on a custom built .308 bolt gun. Man let me just say this scope does not disappoint. I am a police sniper and have access to virtually any optic I choose but I requested this one for my issue rifle after buying the one I own personally. It is rugged reliable and has all the necessary features like illuminated reticle and a great zero stop. The Glass is superb and oh so crystal clear! I love the finish on the optic which goes well with virtually and tactical color scheme. The adjustments on the turrets are audible and positive. Target ranging with the reticle is super simple and fast. I could go on and on but I'll end this by saying Just buy this scope it will not disappoint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still a phenomenal optic I’ve had a first gen Razor HD for a few years now. It was my first high end optic and has functioned perfectly since day one. The thing is built like a tank and has served every purpose that I have had a use for. Compared to other high end optics this scope still delivers on quality and functionality, often at a lower price point. The turrets are heavy duty with very tactile/audible clicks, the glass is incredibly clear, and the reticle leaves very little to be desired. Add to that, the thing just looks cool. Very pleased with this optic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best scope I've ever owned! Got this scope in early August, suffered from a flood a week later. My scope was submerged in 4 ft of water for around 30 minutes. I wasn't concerned at all about the integrity of the scope. I now have the glass mounted and by far the clearest glass that I have ever looked through! Not to mention the Vortex warranty is unmatched by any other. I will not purchase from another company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope for elr I bought my gen 1 razor a few months back and have been blown away by the quality of the glass and the tracking. I’ve ran somewhere in the ballpark of 7-800 rounds through my 300wm without any issues. It’s been dialed up to 81 moa for targets at 1900yds then back to zero and was dead on 200 on multiple occasions and have only had to reset zero stop once due to using a different bullet and wanted the zero to be at 100yds. Only thing that I would change about this scope well two things wish the scope had a little more magnification like the gen 2 but still had 125 moa of adjustment and that the magnification dial had a lever of some sort from the factory both of these are fairly minor issues and I wouldn’t even hesitate recommending this scope to someone

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing scope! I love these scopes! 100% dependable, perfect tracking and return to zero every time, awesome glass to my eyes, one of my favorite reticles to date, and very crisp, tactile, and audible turrets. Smooth parallax and magnification adjustments, and all backed by the best warranty in the optics business! I already own 2 of these Razors and will not hesitate to buy another!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still a great option This optic was actually my first foree into the higher end scopes. I had been extremely impressed by the the Viper 6.5-20 PA, and wanted to move up. After seeing a video on Snipers Hide, where they effectively blew it up, I knew I had to have it. It has served me well over the years, and it's got some mileage!! The adjustments are tactile, the glass is phenomenal, and the bronze seems to blend well with every rifle I put it on. It currently sits atop my 6.5 CM, and with 36mils of elevation; it's a joy to reach out and ring steel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best rifle scope I've ever owned. The performance of this rifle scope is unmatched in my experience of sampling various tyes of glass...and the VIP warranty is the icing on the cake. Easy of use and price also add to the total pack. That is why Vortex Optics is my flavor of choice when it comes to optics and I will plug Vortex to other prospective customers all day long. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Razor HD All I can say is wow! Best decision on an optic I have ever made. I was torn between the razor and a Nightforce nxs. What finally got me more than anything was warranty and ffp and all for less money. Truth is my Razor has way more to offer than the Nightforce. I mean sure Nightforce has a great reputation but Vortex takes the cake for sure. A better designed reticle and it's 1st focal plane with a 35mm main tube and high density glass. This is a work horse, my next tier 1 optic will definitly be a Vortex Razor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much my favorite scope that I have two! I picked up my first one of these a couple years ago and used it on a Ruger Percision rifle and 6.5 Creedmoor. It was an incredible scope on that rifle and now lives on a custom 6mm Creedmoor with a second my 308. It has been one of Vortex’s flagship scopes for a long time and it remains the standard by which many scopes are measured against in my personal opinion. The elevation that is available in the knobs, especially with the 10 mil turrets, easily get you to 1000 yards and beyond. Optical clarity, return to zero, ease to zero the scope, user adjustable to their preference zero stop and a very durable while remaining lighter weight than most scopes in its class equates to a an arguable do everything scope. I have two of these and can guarantee you that I will have a third .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outshooting the rest So this is the first scope I have ever purchased. Now wait a minute, I guide on a Texas hunting ranch and have for 15 years. I have shot almost all brands of rifles and scopes that are on the market. After looking through Vortex's glass and reading the guarantee I knew these scopes would get a tryout. I put a 5-20x50 Razor HD on my favorite ranch gun and magical things started happening. Well that's what the others I shoot and hunt with witnessed. I now outshoot all of them on the range- Same gun but now with a Vortex Razor scope. I harvest game 100 to 400 yards. The scope adjusts quickly, pulls plenty of light early/late and has not needed a single adjustment coming up on 1000 shots fired. A No-brainer if you're looking for a new scope. it's not hype, its quality. Thanks Vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great glass, Great trackinf I have had my Razor HD 5-20 for just over 6 months now. Had on two different rifles before my custom build was finish and used it for hunting and plinking steel. I love this scope. Easy to set zero stop, tons of elevation adjustments, some really great glass, and great tracking are just a few of the things that make this scope great. For the money you can not go wrong. We constantly shoot out to 700 yards and this scope helps make that a easy chore. That’s shooting 3” circle at 700 yards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for your buck I use this optic for my long range rifle. Glass is clear and gathers light well. Lines are clean and well defined. Turrets are crisp and solid. In my opinion some of the best glass for your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My "Go To" Scope That Does It All I own three of these and couldn't be happier with them. Bright,crisp & clear with tactile & robust turret clicks, positive zero stop function, repeatable & precise tracking.....what's not to like. These have come down a bit in price this year which is why I bought another. You won't be let down by this scope and its durability. I have hunted with it regularly in some tough conditions and have had zero issues. My only wish is that it was a bit lighter but not a deal killer for me.
