Rated 5 out of 5 by from You won't be disappointed! I own over 15 vortex optics but this is my first Razor HD. I was hesitant about spending the extra money for the HD version considering all my other Vortex Optics are top knotch and Crystal clear, but I'm glad I did. I got this for a 6.5 creedmoor build and all I can say is WOW! This is a beast, difference between day and night. This scope is in a class of it's own. Well built, like a tank. Easy to see and use turrets. Turrets lock down so no way of accidental moving. Looking through this scope you see a world of difference. This is by far the best scope on the market! You will not regret buying this scope!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to competition scope. I own 4 of the Gen 2 Razors and use them in National level Precision Rifle Series and NRL matches. Every single one has been rock solid with not a single quality issue or failure. I have seen scopes go down at rifle matches from about every other top end manufacturer, I have never seen a Gen 2 Razor fail the user at any of the events I have attended. One of our catch phrases of the top end shooters in recommending gear is "buy once cry once" well I have bought the Gen 2 four times and never cried once. I know I am getting the best product for my money with this optic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Range Shooters Dream! I bought my first Gen2 Razor over 2 years ago for a lone range .308 rifle, and i liked it so much i bought a second for another build. The clarity of the glass is phenomenal, and the turrets are great, solid clicks and tracks perfectly. The 113.5moa of travel is great. I have it in a 20moa mount which sits on a 20 moa rail giving me 96+moa for drop compensation. Everyone who has looked through the scope has been highly impressed with the clarity. It makes seeing the target at 1k almost too easy. Each optic has experienced over 1200 rounds of recoil and when I dial for a 900 yard shot its dead on. If i build another long range rifle i will be getting a third gen 2 without hesitation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Workhorse A year ago I put this optic right next to a two others that cost nearly double what the Gen II does. Same objective, different brand. After 500 rounds down each rifle I came to the same conclusion I did after the first couple outings. The Gen II Razor is simply the workhorse optic in the long range precision rifle game. It simply gives up nothing against the competition. Actually it outranks the comparable optics as it is 1/2 the price with all the great features. This is not a cheap optic, but it is affordable in it's class. Optics come and go, at least one if not two pictured will be out of it in short as a winner has been picked. Hint: it's the first pictured.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great optic for my home built .50 BMG! I built my first rifle on my Grizzly GO709 metal lathe. Purchased a BAT EX bolt action for the .50 BMG cartridge. I made the stock out of birch laminate, grey/brown/green. After extensive research I purchased the Vortex Razor HD Gen II, 4.5x27x56mm. I have used this scope for over a year now and must say it is absolutely the right choice! Very clear at 1350plus yards, rigged/tough. The Razor stands out from all other scopes, instead of being flat black, its an elegant hue of pewter-bronze. The scope tracks exceptionally well, the large dials are a plus for big hands and easy turning, the 27 power is magnificent for extreme long ranges. I have experience with U.S.Optics, and NF ATACR, and in my judgement the Razor HD Gen II is a better choice. Thank You, SKOL Vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scope Perfection I'm a very satisfied Gen I Razor owner, but found myself needing a new scope. The Razor Gen II isn't just a new price tag on another barely modified scope. In my opinion the reticle and turrets are perfection - great feel, great glass & repeatable performance. In a PRS style match the gun and scope are going to get banged around and the turrets are going to get twisted over and over throughout the day - this is why I absolutely love the locking turrets and their feel and most of all the repeatable performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Want to Bet" It all started 50 years ago when two boys would go out shooting in Mississippi. Both of us have not shot in a long time and last year we made a bet about me being able to hit a target at 1000 yards with a caliber no larger than a 223. Now at 62 I took the bet and went to a local gun store and purchased a Howa 1500, now I know the optics are very important so I began my search. After several weeks of reading about all top scopes I finally purchased a Razor Gen ll 4.5-27X56. With in two week I had landed all 5 shots on target. The bet was for his 4 passenger ATV!!! Thanks Vortex for an amazing product!!!!
