The people (or at least I do) want a lightweight hunting version of the Razor. 3-12, 2-10, 3-18 at the most.
Vortex offers wonderful Razor spotting scopes and bino's. And yet, when it comes time to take the shot, it's back to the Phillipines with the viper line.
They need to take an honest shot at Swarovski in the lighter weight scope arena. They know the recipe for success.
The recipe is simple.
Japanese or USA made
quality hd glass
Keep the scope around 20 ounces.
Use the same capped turrets from the 1-6 gen2 except .1 mil instead of .2

ffp reticles that are bold and easy to use at low power, and fine enough at the upper ranges to be useful.
Offer Mil and MOA adjustments. Although, I don't personally know anyone who uses MOA anymore.
While I'm at it. Can someone relay to Vortex that not all hunters use MOA. They seem reluctant to offer anything geared towards hunting in Mils.
They have a very usable cheap scope in the viper hs lr 2.5-10 ffp. Only they don't bother to offer this compact scope in Mils. Silly, I know.
Now, wouldn't these turrets be nice on a hunting scope!http://www.vortexoptics.com/uploads/rfl_rzr-g2_s_1-6x24_cap_turrets-mrad-t.jpghttp://www.vortexoptics.com/uploads/rzr-hd-g2_1-6x24_16003_f-t.jpg
