Gen II razor is going to be hard to beat. If any places still have a Khales gen 2 they were in that price and a gen 3 could be had used in that area.

Think vortex amg could be worth a look


At that price point may want to go to ttha and try to hold a few of them

Razor Gen2 weighs almost 4lbs. Vortex amg looks promising but none are available. I know 2 people that ordered the amg at shot show and are still waiting.

Amg is just now about to get released to the public. Only a few are in hands to people in the know. The gen 2 is a pig no doubt but it's a proven one. Hell one was on a rifle last year that was ran over by a brush job and it still held zero.

The Vortex Amg is a very nice scope with high reviews especially from people that are paid reviewers so be careful of all the hype........

Vortex Razor, Used NF, Bushnell Elite ERS Significantly under budget, but will do the job)

Are there any optics dealers in the metroplex that handle several brands of higher end scopes? Id like to put my hands and eyes on 5x25 schmidt, 6x24 kahles, nightforce, ect. It's tough spending that kinda money on a scope without actually handling it.

I have had the Votex gen 2 and the Nightforce ATACR. Still have the ATACR. They are both good scopes but I liked the turrets better on the NF. Illumination is better on the gen 2. Just my 2 cents

You can pick up a used Kahles in that range. I have two of them and really like them. I really want to get my hands on a gen 3 to try it out.

I have the S&B PMII 3-20 x50. Locking turrets, illuminated reticle. It's swwwweeeettttt! Built like a tank. A little more than $2,500 though. A used Night force would be my 2nd recommendation and with that price range.
