Vortex RZR-16003 overview

  • 1Description

The 1-6x24 Razor HD GEN II Riflescope from Vortex combines a high-transmission lens system and weather-sealed 30mm maintube to create a versatile optic for close to midrange 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 JM-1 BDC (Ballistic Drop Compensation) reticle on the second focal plane (SFP). The reticle illumination is controlled using a dedicated 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 unnecessary cycling through other settings.

The scope's housing is machined from aluminum, and features a scratch- and corrosion-resistant anodized finished, and is argon filled to ensure fogproof and waterproof performance. Exposed lens surfaces are finished with ArmorTek, Vortex's proprietary scratch-resistant coating that also repels moisture and dirt. This scope is backed by Vortex's lifetime warranty.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dead On The illuminated reticle made it so much easier to take my pronghorn at 207 yards as it was approaching night. The clarity of this scope is unbelievable!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trust with my life!! I used the HD2 1-6 optic for multiple combat deployments and training "work-up" cycles. During my troop's CQC training block I was able to compare the optic against the standard issue Holographic sight. While shooting the standard high/low ready my time compared to my troops was negligible, quick target engagement was equal. The benefits that come with a variable power optic far out weight the minimal time advantages from the holographic sight. Low power (1-6/8) variable optics should become the standard issue for all troops, the durability, reliability, and versatility of the optic are the individuals' best option for the "One Optic to Rule them all!!!" 80% of the time the "Jack of all triads" type optic is better than a master of one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh my god This glass is crystal clear. Focus is clear adjustment knobs have positive clicks. No distortion while magnifying. Illuminated dot is round not oblong like so many other companies. True both eyes open on 1 power. Not many scopes give that to you. Your getting quality way past the cost of this 1400 scope. not to mention if anything goes wrong you have your very own pro support team that will help you get your optic back up and running. I'm using the JM1 reticle and the bullet drop is spot on. If your debating buyin this scope, buy with confidence. Everyone that shoots this at the range goes oh my god. My rifle sees lots of use being a firearms instructor, competitor and former Special Forces Engineering Sargent. I wish this was the optic I was issued while on active duty. Thanks Vortex for the amazing gear!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All American I love my Razor HD Gen I 1-6. It’s perfect for hunting in the timber on my AR 10 in the mountains of Wyoming. On 1X I feel confident to engage a charging grizzly bear if need be and at 6X with its awsome clarity slip a round through a tight opening on an elk. And when it’s time to give it up you can pass this scope on to your kids and grandkids. It’s my favorite scope, I even choose it over my Leupold. U won’t regret buying this optic. Good Hunting!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good investment I've had my Razor HD for about 4 months now. Using it in practice and some 3Gun matches on my competition rifle. I'll honestly say it's flat-out amazing. The JM Reticle is very easy to use, the glass is super clear no matter the temp/humidity, the adjustable illumination is always a crisp dot, and the light transmission is impressive. Do yourself a favor and just get one of these already.
