Every component in that scope is made in America. I have been holding off from posting about this.

Scope sounds great, price point doesn't tickle my fancy though. Is the reticle as busy in the field or range as it looks in that pic? I've never used one with the EBR7 but it makes since

Does this mean Vortex is moving into manufacturing its own products? If not, who's building it?

Like the weight a lot better than the Razor line. Wonder if the eyebox is any bigger for this one.

It's still a RAZOR HD just more geared towards hunting/tactical crowd. At 20oz lighter than the Razor HD GenII, the Razor HD G2's only downfall is its a damn brick.

That's awesome. I called about a month ago to see if I could get 10 mil turrets versus the 5 for my PST. Guy told me I'd have to go to the Razor to get those turrets and there wasn't anything he could do for me. I thanked him and told him that not everyone wants a 3 lb scope to hang off their rifle.

I was seriously considering a jump to March because of the weight. This one has me curious now.

Short gen 2 per the Vortex rep on SH.


Another thing to consider about price is that the gen2 has a msrp of $3399 but a street price in the $2400 so if this scope has a msrp of $2500 then the real world price will likely be a bit lower.

Pics of it open on fb Chad. Look on the Spartan precision rifles page. A few months back he posted a pic of a vortex rep using one of his rifles and this scope. It was early December or earlier.

So would you take a 6-24 Amg or 4.5-30 razor 2?

That will be interesting. I would have rather seen something materially different than a current offering i.e. A 1-8 or 2-12 type scope
