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 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 Top of the line scope! The vortex products are top-of-the-line. There is no other company or manufacture that comes close to vortex. Their warrantee is unmatched as is the customer service. The razor scope is in absolute outstanding rifle scope. The optics and construction are unparalleled in their quality. Performance is a 10 out of 10 when it comes to performance in the field. There is no margin for error when it comes down to that one shot of a lifetime and vortex will give you the quality that you come to expect. Find the shot take the shot and believe that vortex will be there for you – both for the shot and for the warranty. A true American company and its best!

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 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!!!!

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!

I just bought a brand new Razor HD 42705. I havent mounted it on the rifle yet....but when I look through the scope the view is about as big as a dime. Also the reticle does not appear centered but will float to center as I move to the left?

Asked by: fredunderwood
Thanks for reaching out! It sounds like you have the scope too far away from your eye when looking through it, as far as the reticle goes, please give us a call at 800-426-0048 Ext. 5 so we can go through some troubleshooting and figure out exactly what is happening!

What does "EBR-1C" stand for? Thanks

Asked by: InfectioncontrolRN
Thanks for the question! EBR stands for Enhanced Battle Reticle. The 1C is just nomenclature that differentiates that reticle from our other EBR reticles.

Do you have a torque rating for the set screws on the turrets? Mine came loose in a recent training class and I had to reset my zero. How tight can I go without damaging the stem? Will loctite be ok to use?

Asked by: Shooter3.65
I recommend using 7 inch/lbs with no loctite. Make sure you are tightening them incrementally, slowly snugging each one up before finishing each with 7 inch/lbs.
