Vortex RZR-1565 overview

  • 1Description

Outfitted with superior High Density and Extra-Low dispersion optics, Vortex's 2-10x40 Razor HD LH Riflescope does not compromise on ruggedness or precision opto-mechanics. To offer a balanced spectrum of color, a low dispersion of passing light, and to deliver high definition true-color images, the lenses are crafted from high definition, High Density (HD), and Extra-Low dispersion optical glass. The lenses are also fully multi-coated with proprietary XRPlus anti-reflection coatings for maximum transmission and minimum glare and have an additional ArmorTek scratch-resistant coating to protect them from scratches, debris, dirt, oil, and fingerprint stains. The 40mm objective aperture gathers enough light to provide bright images in most lighting conditions.

Located in the second focal plane is the G4 BDC Reticle. Its outline is inspired by the German #4 reticle design and features three thin and long tapered posts with fine spikes, an ultra-fine center dot, and BDC markings below the center. It offers subtensions in MOA from 140 to 650 yards depending on your rifle class. The BDC hash marks are ranged at 4.5 MOA on the first hash, 7.5 MOA on the middle hash, and 11 MOA at the tip of the heavy vertical post. The overall reticle pattern provides a clear and unobtrusive view of your targets. Enabling you to tap into the full potential of this reticle, such as edge-to-edge precision, the optical system was assembled using a computer-controlled alignment process. This high-precision process also delivers optimum image brightness and sharpness.

To match exceptional optical performance, this riflescope also offers an extremely durable construction and precision adjustments. Its 1" maintube is machined from a single-piece of high quality aluminum and coated with an abrasive-resistant and low-glare matte anodized finish. The scope is filled with argon gas and sealed with O-rings for a complete fogproof and waterproof performance. To provide a smooth and precise zooming action, the opto-mechanical gear is carefully designed and enhanced with Precision-Glide Erector System. The elevation turret also prevents dialing below zero. For visual reference, the fast-focus eyepiece and windage and elevation turrets are outfitted with scales.

    Vortex RZR-1565 reviews

    2-10x40 Razor HD LH Riflescope (G4 BDC Reticle) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Scope, Vortex should re-think the reticle options I have both the 3-15x42mm and the 2-10x40mm. The 3-15x was impressive enough to add the 2-10x. Both utilize the G4 BDC reticle. The HSR-4 is a bit thin on the main and secondary stadia for dark target and low light situations. The German style post G4 offers decent contrast and effective aiming points. The weight/mass is around 16oz each. Not that remarkable for a 2FP optic with around a 40mm objective and basic POI adjustments. Major Pros: The image and ocular design or eye box is suburb on this optic. Very forgiving for fast shoulder acquisition. No tunneling and a good edge-edge image. Major Cons: I'm not totally thrilled on either reticle option. Sometimes the northern hemisphere is brighter than the southern and the absence of a main stadia is a lacking feature.
