Featuring a 35mm tube and an illuminated EBR-3 MRAD reticle in the first focal plane, the Razor HD 5-20x50 from Vortex meets the needs of long-range precision shooters.

The Razor HD is configured with a high-performance optical system. The APO objective delivers accurate color that is free from chromatic aberrations. XD lens elements have been employed to ensure maximum resolution and contrast. The entire optical path is fully multicoated with Vortex's anti-reflective XR coatings for optimum light transmission. Finally, the external lens surfaces have been treated with ArmorTek - an ultra-hard scratch-resistant coating that repels water, oil, and salts.

This scope was built to thrive amidst the challenges of rugged field use and abuse. The robust 35mm tube is constructed from a single piece of lightweight yet durable aluminum. The tube's exterior is hard-coat anodized, and then it is o-ring sealed and purged with argon gas to ensure a water-tight fogproof seal. The erector assembly has been thoughtfully designed, precision-built, and meticulously set into place. Special care has been taken to reduce wear and tear while enhancing durability and repeatability.

Optical Performance
  • APO objective lens: virtually eliminates chromatic aberration

  • Optically indexed lenses: optimizes sharpness and brightness

  • XD lens elements: extra-low dispersion glass for maximum resolution, color, and contrast

  • XR lens coating: anti-reflective multicoating on all air-to-glass surfaces enhances light transmission

  • ArmorTek Coating: ultra-hard scratch resistant coating applied to the exterior lens surfaces - repels oils, salts, provides abrasion protection

Construction Details
  • One-piece 35 mm main-tube: greater strength, enhanced adjustment range

  • Type-3 hard anodized aluminum tube resists corrosion, o-ring sealed and argon purged for water and fogproof performance

  • Friction reduction system: prevents damage to the erector screw contact point. Heat-treated hardened-steel pad on the end of the turret screw interfaces with hardened steel ring on the erector tube for steel-on-steel contact. Ensures superior durability, repeatability, accuracy.

  • Low-friction turret screws: provides smooth operation and adjustments. Precision-machined from a silicon-brass alloy and treated with an advanced dry-film lubricant.

  • Precision erector system: premium brass alloy with anti-galling properties ensure strength and durability. Single chrome vanadium steel erector spring withstands compression, resists fatigue. Mirror finish offers precise elevation and windage adjustments.

Use and Handling
  • Tall turrets - 5 MRAD adjustments

  • RZR elevation turret: return to zero stop

  • Fast focus eyepiece: quick and easy reticle focusing

  • Flip-up lens covers protect optics, provide instant viewing

  • Radius bar: illuminated/tactile fiber optic turret-rotation indicator

  • Side-focus parallax knob: corrects parallax error from 40 yd to infinity

  • killFlash ARD: anti-reflection device minimizes scope's muzzle-side reflective signature. Also functions as a sunshade and lens cap.

Illuminated EBR-3 MRAD Reticle in the First Focal Plane
  • Glass etched for durability

  • Illumination control: turns on/off with a single click between each intensity level. Allows instant access to a preferred illumination setting

  • First focal plane reticle placement: maintains subtension across the magnification range. Reticle increases/decreases in size with power adjustment.

  • EBR-3 MRAD: distance ranging reticle with mrad-based subtension lines for windage and elevation correction
