Optical Features

APO Objective Lens System
Corrects color across the entire visual color spectrum—virtually eliminating chromatic aberration across the entire field of view.

Optically Indexed Lenses
Delivers optimum image sharpness and brightness with true reticle use for full ranging and holdover from edge to edge because of computer-controlled alignment during construction.

XD Lens Elements
Extra-low dispersion (XD) glass enhances resolution, color, and contrast.

XR Lens Coatings
Vortex XR proprietary anti-reflection lens coatings increase light transmission with multiple coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces.

Fully Multi-Coated Lenses
Increase light transmission with multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces.

Construction Features

35mm Tube
Provides more internal room to accommodate a greater range of windage and elevation adjustment to accurately dial longer-range shots.

One-Piece Tube
Maximizes alignment for improved accuracy and optimum visual performance as well as strength and waterproofness.

Aircraft-Grade Aluminum
Construction from a solid block of 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum delivers increased strength and rigidity.

Waterproof
O-ring seals prevent moisture, dust, and debris from getting inside the tube for reliable performance in all environments.

Fogproof
Filled with argon gas to inhibit internal fogging over a wide range of temperatures.

Shockproof
Lenses are locked in place, fore and aft, with machined locking rings to remain in perfect alignment and resist impact.

Hard Anodized Finish
Type-3 hard-coat anodization is durable; the low-glare matte surface of Stealth Shadow Black helps camouflage the shooter’s position.

ArmorTek
Ultra-hard, scratch-resistant coating repels oils and corrosive salts on outer glass surfaces.

Internal Mechanism Design Features

RZR Zero Stop
Rapid Zero Recovery (RZR) feature stops the turret from dialing below sight in range using rugged steel components. Internal mechanisms stay free of sand, dirt, dust, moisture and other foreign materials—even when setting the zero-stop position. Patent pending.

RZR Zero Stop Turrets
Spin quickly and stop at the zero setting without counting clicks. Subtension marks match the reticle making range calculation and shooting adjustments fast and accurate.

First Focal Plane Reticle
Scale of reticle remains in proportion to the zoomed image. Constant subtensions allow accurate holdover and ranging at all magnifications—no shift in point of impact during zoom.

Friction Reduction System
Provides superior durability, repeatability and accuracy for the life of the product. Prevents galling or deformation of the erector screw contact point because the heat-treated, hardened-steel pad floats on the end of the turret screw and interfaces with a hardened steel ring on the erector tube for steel-on-steel contact. Patent pending.

Turret Screws
Provides low-friction, wear-resistant performance: precision-machined from a silicon-brass alloy and treated with an advanced dry-film lubricant. Turret screw threads are ultra-precision machined to sub-2 micron tolerances (less than 78-millionths of an inch). Ultra-smooth operation and adjustments.

Erector Tube System
Precision-machined from premium brass alloy with anti-galling properties for great strength and durability. The erector spring of chromium vanadium withstands compression, has high fatigue resistance, and is tumble-polished to a mirror finish for micro-precise elevation and windage adjustments.

Single Spring Construction
Fully constrains the optical system for predictable, improved accuracy throughout the range of elevation adjustment.

Glass-etched Reticle
Protected between two layers of glass (not made from wire) for optimum durability and reliability.

Illuminated Reticle
Electronic illumination aids in low light visibility of reticle. Battery included.

Illumination Control
Can be turned on or off with a single click between each intensity level—allowing access to a preferred illumination setting without having to progress through each intensity level. Positioned at 45 degrees off the left side of the eyepiece for easy adjustment without blocking view of the turret setting or magnification.

That will probably make the Nightforce salespeople a little nervous.
Looks like a great scope.

That is an interesting looking scope.  The knobs are quite different from what I saw on the prototypes.

I suppose I'll go ahead and start bugging the Vortex people about sending me one for T&E...

Here's a picture that we took that really shows the color of the scope. 
 
 
 
The rings look really nice too.

That is a gorgeous picture.
 
So far, how would you say the optical quality compares to other certain scopes that cost over a grand?
 
I know the Vortex guys were determined to best Nightforce, but they were on a mission to make them even better still.

Vortex succeeded in their mission.  It's easy to top a product that already exists because all of its stats and abilities are known, all you have to do is out spec them and offer more features.  It really helps if you do it in the same factory that Night Force uses, too.  Wink
 
The hard part is gaining market share and brand loyalty.  Night Force is well established in these regards, but so was Leupold 10 years ago.  Shocked

I think Leupold dropped the ball with their tactical scopes 10 years ago.  That gave Nightforce a chance.

Nightforce, so far, is not showing any signs of really dropping the ball.  It will be interesting to see how they respond to the Razor (and it will be interesting to see how the Razor competes against Nightforce).

Saw the article, swung by SWFA this afternoon and that cart in the pic now has 1 less Vortex Razor on it  :)  HOpe I didn't cut in line!

Picked up the box and though it was made of cast iron.
35mm tube, sexy grey/bronze finish, over 37 mils adjustment on the unit in my hands, most functional zeros stop yet, included sunshade, flip caps, and level.  Box has 2 manuals, one for the scope, and another for the reticle explaination.  This reticle is mils for dummies.  If you can't grasp 0.1 mil readings on target after this, you need a new hobby.....it's that easy.
Parallax says min 40 yards.  At 5x image is sharp and crisp at 35 feet.

Image at 20x is killer crisp.  Controls are nothing less than mouth drooling wonderful and well thought out.
 
Gotta run, have it bolted to a rifle and going out in the pasture to shoot some critters this evening.

Does their FOV specs seem correct or does it offer a wider amount?  Would be the only negative to be found for some one just looking at the numbers.
