Vortex RZR-42705 overview

  • 1Description

The 4.5-27x56 Razor HD Gen II Riflescope from Vortex combines a high-transmission lens system and weather-sealed 34mm main-tube to create a versatile optic for mid to long-range targeting. Vortex uses an apochromatic objective lens and optically indexed Extra-low Dispersion (HD) glass elements to maximize the light gathering ability of the optics while minimizing chromatic aberration and preserving clarity. The resulting images are bright and sharp throughout the zoom range.

This Razor HD scope is configured with a EBR-2C MOA reticle in the first focal plane (FFP). The EBR-2C MOA pattern is an illuminated duplex-style variant with medium-weight posts at three, six, and nine o'clock that taper to a fine crosshair. Stadia lines on the horizontal and vertical crosshairs aid in ranging, calculating hold-over, and ballistic-drop compensation. The reticle illumination is controlled using a click-stop wheel on the side focus turret. The illuminator has eleven brightness settings, and an Off position between each setting allows the shooter to quickly return to their previously-used level of illumination without cycling through other settings.

The scope main-tube is machined from a single piece of aluminum, anodized with a corrosion-resistant matte-black finish, and filled with argon gas to ensure fogproof and waterproof performance. Exposed lens surfaces are protected with Vortex's proprietary ArmorTek scratch-resistant coating that also repels moisture and dirt.

    Vortex RZR-42705 reviews

    4.5-27x56 Razor HD Gen II Riflescope (EBR-2C MOA Reticle) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 52.
    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 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 Serious scope for the serious shooter! While I love my generation one razors, for my extended long-range rifle there was no question on which scope I was going to go with. While I looked through the scope on other peoples Rifles it never ceases to amaze me how clear this glasses, how wide the field of view is that distance, and how easy and precise zero is the set up. If I have only one complaint it is the half mill down zero stop as I personally like to set my zero stop at one mill below zero. That aside it is an exceptional piece of glass and no wonder why it is the most popular on the precision rifle series firing line as well as on the line with national rifle league.

    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 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 Clear, Crisp, and Tough I bought my gen 2 4.5-27x56 about 3 years ago and have mounted it on many rifles from 6.5’s 338’s. It is built like a tank and always performs flawlessly. After years of use and abuse all of the adjustments and features continue to work as they did the day i mounted it. These scopes are top of the line and no corners were cut when they came out with this design. Thats why after 3 years it continues to be one of, if not the most sought after optics for top PRS shooters. I need to add that these scopes are definitely heavy but keep my rating at 5 stars because weight is not an issue for the shooting that i do. Great Job Vortex

    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!
