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 MRAD reticle in the first focal plane (FFP). The EBR-2C MRAD 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.
