Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best scope for 3-Gun Competition I've been searching for a scope that I could shoot as quickly as my Aimpoint red dot, but also give me the ability to reach out further. I tried several scopes, but always encountered reticles that were too busy to shoot quickly. I reverted back to my Aimpoint because of the speed, but struggled with seeing targets past 200 yards. Then I took a chance with the Razor HD, and it was exactly what I was looking for. Finally I have a scope that I can shoot just like my Aimpoint when set to 1x, and then dial up for the further shots. The illuminated dot is extremely bright and the glass is amazingly bright. Buy this scope and never look back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for 5.56 When I first was looking at this product I was on the fence between it and the trijicon VCOG... then I got my hands on them. Hands down, the vortex razor HD gen II is superior in every way, and even costs less at that. For the crispness of clarity and sharpness of light transmission I would expect to pay a lot more. And having the ability to go from 1-6x is perfect for pretty much every conceivable purpose of the AR family of rifles. As a paratrooper and a veteran of OEF I can't stress the importance of ruggedness and multi function of a piece of glass enough, vortex delivers on all fronts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from unexpected greatness i purchased this for 3gun because everyone said it was the greatest thing .... i am a believe it when i see it kind of guy ... and i am a believer now , this optic is by far the best optic and reticle i have ever used ... i am just mad at myself for not getting it sooner than i did quality, crystal clear lens, and with the quick throw lever makes this a perfect set up for 3 gun and i am going to get another for my tactical rifle as well .... all of that and with the warrenty they have i dont see how anyone else is going to stay in business

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope! This 1x6 is great for SE Alaska black tail. Normally shots are taken around 100 or less yards. At 1x the field of view is crystal clear all the way to the edge so there is no problem keeping both eyes open to shoot. But when I start to zoom in I have to close one eye, and the field of view is still crystal clear all the way to the edge. It came fairly centered out of the box when I put a laser bore sight in. Then it was very easy to zero after that. I have 2 cons about the scope. First it is heavy. But it is worth the weight for the clarity. And second, the zoom knob is very stiff. I got the through lever Vortex offers and it helps a lot. Other than that I am very pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dead On The illuminated reticle made it so much easier to take my pronghorn at 207 yards as it was approaching night. The clarity of this scope is unbelievable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm a newbie 3-Gunner I'm new to the sport of 3 Gun, and fairly new to shooting. I came across some Christmas funds (work bonus) and decided to purchase this 1-6x24 after watching a ton of reviews on YouTube. Bought it, and then watched the Vortex installation video (easy to use, straightforward). Overnight, I've gone from "...,...,...,...,...,hit,...,....,...,hit" to "hit,hit,...,hit, hit,...,hit,...,hit,...,...hit." What more could you ask for in a riflescope? Not to mention, this thing is built like a tank AND has the best warranty in the business. In love, will be loyal to Vortex for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily the best scope on the planet Looking through this optic literally makes your vision better. I'm not sure how the folks at Vortex pulled this off, but when you can see the edges of a target at 600 yards - you have the best optic on the market. The optical clarity is superior to anything I've ever looked through. On top of that, this scope is built like a tank. I've litter hurled it in a dump barrel from a few feet away several times at 3 gun matches and this scope refuses to lose zero. The reticle is perfect: simple, not busy at all and excels at its job. The only downside (and it's a small one) is that tanks are heavy and this scope is a little heavier than other options - HOWEVER - you're not going to get even close to the optical clarity and toughness out of those other options. Thank you Vortex for producing the best scope in world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the best I'm in a SWAT team and was tasked with Testing and Evaluating several top of the line scopes to be used for a designated marksman. The Vortex Razor HD Gen II out performed the Leopold and 2 different Trijicon scopes. We evaluated them on clarity, ease of use, weight, accuracy, adjustability, and price. The Vortex won in every aspect except weight. The Razor is a tank. But it's craftsmanship, design, and overall evaluation was far superior that weight didn't matter.

I see you are suggesting to not use Loctite, is there a specific reason for this? I used the removable blue as it’s standard for almost anything I attach. Just wanted to make sure that isn’t a problem!

Asked by: Xcardazon
The vast majority of inch lb torque wrenches people use are calibrated for a dry torque. When you introduce Loctite or other wet thread locking compounds you reduce friction creating a "wet" torque. This will cause your wrench to go 30 to 60% over what it is set at. Over tightening of rings will prevent proper performance of your optic.

How can I tell what reticle is in the scope? MOA or MRAD

Asked by: PW)#@!
The scope turrets will be labeled with either MOA or MRAD.

Is the Gen II 1-6x24 MRAD suitable for a hunting on a 6,5x55 swe caliber (sako AV)? And how far of a distance can this scope reach in meters? FInally; Will there be a 1-8x24 version of this? Best regards @Salty_viking

Asked by: Salty_viking
This scope would work great on your rifle for hunting. You can use the scope as far as you can see with it as there is no limit on distance, only how large your target will look.

Is there anyway to get the components that could be cerakoted and then sent back for final assembly. I would be using a cerokote certified applicator.

Asked by: scuba
We would not be able to re-assemble your scope, you should not have any problems cerakoting your scope assembled as long as you use the air-cure method and do it with the rings installed because the cerakote will add to the size of the scope tube.

I have the Gen II, the very end came loose when was putting on a defender flip up cap. Is this designed to come off? It would seem the flexible rubber cap would fit over the end easier if it supposed to, if not I need to send it back.

Does the new Viper PST Gen II 1-6x24 use the same body as the Razor HD Gen II 1-6x24?? They appear very similar. I am particularly interested if the outer diameters at the eyepiece/ocular and objective are the same. Thanks!

Asked by: Geoff
They do not use the same body, however the dimension are very close. All of the measurements for both are available under the specs tab on each scope's page so you can compare.
