Really? Is there no market for a guy who just wants to be able to shoot a little more confidently yet doesn’t want a brick with a busy reticle atop their lightweight rifle? I just can’t get my brain around this tactical bent to scopes these days.

I’ve got several Meopros. Great scopes. I’d just like a bit more magnification than 9 or 10x without going to a 50 mil bell. If they made a Meopro in a 4-12x42(ish), the search would be over. The 4.5-14x44 is just a touch bigger than ideal for this particular rifle.

Don’t want the weight for this particular gun, which is why I said 1”. I’m well aware of the SHV line and know they’re great. Don’t need the adjustment range either. Wouldn’t shoot past 500. I guess I back to trying to accept that what I want doesn’t exist.

They had discontinued these models, wonder if they really going to bring these back. I have and had lots of the vortex viper and diamondback models. My favorite so far has been the 4-12X40 diamondback. I dont twist knobs and all that other mess, just set and forget on hunting rifles. But I did just pick up the Burris E-1 4.5-14X42 for $191 to my door from Doug.

Thanks but I want better glass than that. The Razor series is the only Vortex I’d consider.

Someone know of a scope that has:
1” tube
40-44 mm objective
3 or 4 to 12-14x max magnification
16-17 oz max
14” long max
Quality glass with simple duplex reticle
Second focal plane
Reliable, solid RTZ and tracking, limited dialing to 500 ish.

Cost would not be much of a consideration if it ticked all the above boxes.

Please spare me the “just accept a few more ounces and go 30 mm and get a Nightforce.” I know that may be your version of acceptable, but it’s not mine. Thanks.

Re: Vortex Razor HD LH - 01/14/20

Although now discontinued, there are still some 1.5-8X32 and 2-10X40 Razor HD LHs on Ebay at the moment with the G4 reticle. If you're wanting a simple hunting reticle, I think it qualifies as such. I have the 1.5-8X32 with the G4 reticle, and I think it's an outstanding hunting reticle. It looks somewhat like a #4 without the upper vertical stadia, but with a center dot. The outer bars are very bold, tapering to narrower bars near the center, and the small center dot allows for precision aiming. The bold outer bars extend far enough toward the center to allow easy bracketing of a deer sized animals vitals in very low light. It does have BDC marks below the center dot, but there are only 2 and they're small and unobtrusive.

The 1.5-8X32 is very compact and light. I would not choose it if you planned to twirl knobs, and it wasn't designed for such; it's a "set and forget" scope. In that role, I think it's a very nice scope. I love the G4 reticle, it has retained zero for me so far, and it's optically very nice.

I'm not a fan of most of Vortex's rifle scopes, but I do think those from the Razor series are pretty good, especially at the discounted price I paid for mine.

Re: Vortex Razor HD LH - 01/14/20

I have the razor LH G4 reticle on my barret fieldcraft. I thinks a great hunting reticle. I know it’s not what you want but if you are limiting to 500 I can see using the center dot for max point blank range and then use the second and third dot to get you to 500. I’ve dialed mine a few times just to check repeatability and it’s been perfect.

The glass is extremely bright and clear and the eye box is huge. I think it’s about the most perfect lightweight hunting scope for the discounted prices (399)

Yeah that’s not the G4 reticle though, that’s the HSR. I don’t really like either, but I dislike the G4 less. The issue is this is going on a rifle that my kids often shoot. It takes them long enough to get set up on game, the last thing I want is a confusing reticle.

Re: Vortex Razor HD LH - 01/15/20

I did the simple duplex reticle for a while, but I rarely wanted to take the time to dial, and when I would, I'd have to remember to undial, or I'd have to wait for a different shot and readjust, and so on. I realized I would need to spend A LOT more money for a scope that could reliably return to zero, and it would be heavier. Or, I could just adjust to using a reticle with holdover and windage points. I figure there's less that could go wrong with dialing.

I prefer the G4. I really like how it is clear at the top half and the bars on the side and bottom are thick enough to see easily. It’s easy to find the center dot because it sits equal distant between the three bars.

I have the 1-5-8x32 with then G4. My 12 year old nephew used it on a 243 and had no problem hitting milk jugs at 100 yards. He got his first deer with it last fall.

I agree the G-4 is very simple. I think its a great scope for kids because all they have to know is put the dot where you want to hit the animal. Done

I think Leupold made their VX2 in 4-12 with the Long Range Duplex. A duplex with three dots on the vertical. I use it zeroed at 200, and the dots are dang close at 300, 400, and 500. I have 3 VX6s in 2-12 that are my go to elk scope. I have the LRD in a 4-12 and a 3-9 and like them a lot. I don't dial on my elk rifles for the same reason as you, I can't find one to meet all my criteria and the dots get me to 500 just fine.

That too bad, I’ve become a fan of the 1.5-8x32 with the G4 BDC. I’m very intrigued by what they’ll offer though. My hope is it’s not yet another scope built for the long range crowd. There are very few, one could even argue zero, lightweight, durable, scopes that dial reliably for those occasional 300-500yd shots, or training, and have a reticle suitable for dark timber. i.e. built for the majority of hunters.

Re: Vortex Razor HD LH - 01/29/20

Another vote for Razor HD LHs being super badass optics. I think it's myopic of people to dismiss them because "they're Vortex and I don't like their scopes." Regarding riflescopes, Vortex is an importer... a Vortex Crossfire is almost as different from a Vortex Razor as a Tasco is from a Zeiss. Both made in different countries, with different standards of manufacturing and different materials. Razors are top of the line, Japanese-made optics. Both of mine are fantastic.

It will be very interesting to see if the G4-BDC reticle will make it back in any versions of this scope. Apparently, it is a well received design in Europe, but not so much here.

It they do introduce a 30mm version of this scope with some sort of a half-decent reticle option, I'll pick up a couple more.

Hd vortex lh discontinued razor

Riflescopes for hunting have to strike a balance between features and weight. The Vortex Razor HD LH did just that. The same can be said about their new Razor HD LHT newer and improved product line.

Riflescopes are an investment. There are many on the market and all of them cater to a particular niche. Some of those are amazing, others leave a little something to be desired, and quite a few are simply inadequate for many applications. Enter the Vortex Optics Razor HD LH riflescope.

To be honest, this review is long overdue. The entire Razor HD LH line of riflescopes from Vortex Optics has been discontinued and replaced by their next generation optics, which I will address later in this post. Nevertheless, I picked up the Vortex Optics Razor HD LH riflescope in a 3-15×42 configuration and put on the deer hunting rifle before it was discontinued and have spent some time with it.

Before I get deep in the weeds, it’s important to know that I have very high expectations of any rifle scope with a price point that exceeds $1,000. This scope is no exception. As such, I’m going to be quite critical of it.

When I picked this scope up, I was in the market for a high quality scope that offered adequate magnification for hunting applications for close range to extended distances. I was specifically looking for a riflescope with above average light gathering and lens clarity, while keeping weight down to a minimum. This particular riflescope checked all the boxes.

The scope weighs in at 16.5 ounces. The lens clarity is magnificent and gathers light superbly. These qualities make the scope a great option for a hunting riflescope. Furthermore, the scope came with a sunshade that was very well machined and often sought after by hunters as it assists in keeping lens glare to a minimum. An additional, welcomed and expected feature at this price point was the parallax adjustment turret which aids heavily in getting a crystal clear target image and reticle.

Honestly, it’s hard to find complaints about this riflescope. Nevertheless, I have some.

I get that many riflescopes, especially those designed for hunting applications, come with capped turrets. Capped turrets have their benefits, but I’m partial to exposed turrets. When possible, I prefer a turret adjustment to a hold over. Exposed turrets make this possible while capped turrets limit this.

My other two complaints are largely driven by personal preference. The first is a preference for so-called Christmas tree reticles. I find these reticles provide the perfect balance of reference points to practical hold overs. The HRS-4 reticle in this scope misses that mark. Furthermore, I have a strong preference for first focal plane (FFP) scopes. I understand FFP scopes are generally more expensive, but at a price point exceeding $1k, it’s something I expect to see. Perhaps that is wishful thinking on my part, but this scope with an FFP tree reticle and exposed turrets would make this scope virtually perfect.

After stating my complaints, I have to ask: “Would I purchase this scope again?” Assuming the market hasn’t changed and there wasn’t a better scope at the same price point, then the answer is yes. It’s an amazing scope that ticks most of the boxes of what I want in a hunting riflescope.

The good news for folks in the market for one is that Vortex has an updated product line, the Razor HD LHT line that offers improvements that address several of my complaints. This series of riflescopes offers external turrets and improved HSR-5i reticles. The reticles aren’t the tree reticles I am looking for and they haven’t addressed my desire for FFP reticles at this price point, but these riflescopes are definitely an improvement over the one I picked up. So yeah, with the same budget today, I would definitely opt for the improved Razor HD LHT 3-15×42 scope. After all, it seems like I would need to spend 2-3x the price of this scope to get into something that addresses all my complaints.

Passers-by paid attention to it. After the cross, we trained in the long jump technique. My underpants, although they were not completely clean, were completely stained with dirty and wet sand. Finally, the coach let the girls go, and he gathered us boys in our locker room. I saw how the boys, sitting on mats in the corner of the locker room, began to take turns taking off their.
