Optical Features

APO System Apochromatic objective lens system uses index-matched lenses to correct color across the entire visual spectrum.
Optically Indexed Lenses Optimize image sharpness and brightness from edge to edge.
HD Lens Elements Premium HD (High Density) extra-low dispersion glass delivers the ultimate in resolution and color fidelity, resulting in High Definition images.
XR™Plus Fully Multi-Coated Premium proprietary coatings deliver the highest level of light transmission with multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces for maximum brightness.
Plasma Tech Cutting edge application process provides unparalleled coating durability and performance.
First Focal Plane Reticle Scale of reticle remains in proportion to the zoomed image. Constant subtensions allow accurate holdover and ranging at all magnifications.
Glass-etched Reticle Allows for intricate reticle design. Protected between two layers of glass for optimum durability and reliability.
Illuminated Reticle Provides precise aiming under low-light conditions.

Construction Features

Tube Size 34 mm diameter provides maximized internal adjustment and strength.
Single-Piece Tube Maximizes alignment for improved accuracy and optimum visual performance, as well as ensures strength and waterproofness.
Aircraft-Grade Aluminum Constructed from a solid block of aircraft-grade aluminum for strength and rigidity.
Waterproof O-ring seals prevent moisture, dust and debris from penetrating the riflescope for reliable performance in all environments.
Fogproof Argon gas purging prevents internal fogging over a wide range of temperatures.
Shockproof Rugged construction withstands recoil and impact.
Hard Anodized Stealth Shadow Finish Highly durable hard-coat anodization provides a low-glare matte surface and helps camouflage the shooter’s position.
ArmorTek Ultra-hard, scratch-resistant coating protects exterior lenses from scratches, oil and dirt.
L-Tec Turrets Integrated locking mechanism prevents accidental adjustments. Turrets provide fast, accurate, easily read elevation and windage adjustments. Patent pending.
External Rotation Indicator Provides quick visual and tactile reference of elevation turret’s rotational position.
Locking Illumination Locks illumination at preferred setting.
Side Focus Adjustment located on left side of turret housing is easily accessible from shooting position. Provides optimal image focus and parallax removal.

Internal Mechanism Design Features

L-Tec Zero Stop Prevents elevation turret from dialing below sight in range using rugged steel components. Internal mechanisms stay free of sand, dirt, dust, moisture and other foreign materials—even when setting the zero-stop position. Patent pending.
Maximized Turret Zero Adjustment For zeroing purposes, turret design allows expanded adjustment range when L-Tec zero stop feature is disengaged for zeroing purposes. This scope offers 33 MRAD total elevation adjustment and 14 MRAD total windage adjustment.
Micro Adjust Zero Setting Infinite zero setting positions allow zero to be set between clicks for optimal accuracy.
Friction Reduction System Heat-treated, hardened-steel pad floats on the end of the turret screw and interfaces with a hardened steel ring on the erector tube for steel-on-steel contact. Prevents galling or deformation of the erector screw contact point for superior durability and repeatability. US Patent 7,958,665
Turret Screws Provides low-friction, wear-resistant performance: precision-machined from a silicon-brass alloy and treated with an advanced dry-film lubricant. Turret screw threads are precision machined to sub-2 micron tolerances (less than 78-millionths of an inch). Ultra-smooth operation and adjustments.
Erector Tube System Precision-machined from premium brass alloy with anti-galling properties for strength and durability. The chromium vanadium erector spring withstands compression, has high fatigue resistance and is tumble-polished to a mirror finish for micro-precise elevation and windage adjustments.

Convenience Features

Fast Focus Eyepiece Allows quick and easy reticle focusing.
L-Tec Tool Included with your scope for precise adjustments to the turret.
Locking Side Illumination Easily accessible and lockable illumination dial is located on the left side of turret housing. Features eleven intensity levels of illumination with off positions between each setting.

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 Pure Joy The quality of the glass as well as operation of this optic is hands down the best or second to the best (when compared to the AMG). The eye box is extremely user friendly. The turrets are solid and defined making dialing in shots precise and exact. The only two things I could nit pick about this optic is the color and the reticle. The open cross hairs is nice but the reticle on the AMG EBR7 with the floating cross hairs appears to be a much better option for precision since it clears up some of that clutter around the optimum target area. If there could be a black paint option and another reticle option as well, I am sure it would surpass the AMG for units sold and used! It is a bit pricey but pay once, cry once!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Optics - Rugged & Reliable Put the Gen II Razor HD 4.5 - 27X on my competition rifle for PRS and have been extremely happy with it's performance. The optics are exceptional, the tracking is spot on, turret locks are sturdy and fool-proof, zero stop systems is the best I've seen. I put this scope through a lot and it doesn't skip a beat. It's heavy, but that's not a real issue on a 20 pound rifle, but might consider the AMG instead for a hunting rifle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope for precision shooting. Purchased this scope about a year ago for my Ruger Precision and it is now my go to set up. The Vortex is a great scope for long range shooting. I like its durability and turret functions the most. The glass on this scope is also good and clear. One other feature I really like is the christmas tree retical with the open center, great for precision shooting.

Recommended rings/setup for a desert tech with dual barrels -- 338 and 308?

Asked by: Mogan
I recommend our 34 mm Precision Extended Cantilever Mount for your setup.
Answered by: Mike at Vortex Optics
Date published: 2017-09-11

What height mounts do you reccommend when mounting the 4.5x27x57 to a Rugar Percission .308?  I have read the 56mm objective hits the rail of this gun unless a 1.6" tall ring is used, and you do not carry rings that tall that I see. Thanks for you help. 

Asked by: Robert
You can use our 34 mm Precision Matched Rings in 1.45" height or our 34 mm Precision Extended Cantilever Mount for proper height.

I ordered a Savage/Ashbury 6.5 Creedmore Precision Rifle. It comes with a ZERO MOA rail but I will eventually put a 20MOA rail up top. I'm ordering the Razor Gen II (EBR-2c) for it and need a recommendation on which rings to purchase. Thanks.

What height rings will I need to mount the Razor Gen 2 4.5-27x56 on a Tikka T3 with 20MOA rail?

Asked by: Monty
The 1.10" height 34 mm Precison Matched Rings will work the best for your setup.

I have just ordered a Razor HD Gen II, with a set of precision matched rings, also Vortex. Will the rings need to be lapped for proper fit?

Asked by: Dontshootit
No, do not lap your Precision Matched Rings as lapping them can actually degrade the quality.

What mounting rings do you recommend for a ruger precision rifle gen 2?

Asked by: PHXScorpion
I will use nothing but the Larue Tactical QD rings on my set ups!
