Vortex Razor HD 5-20x50 Riflescope
Vortex breaks new ground with the introduction of our Razor HD tactical riflescopes. Built literally from the ground up to meet the demanding needs of military and law enforcement precision shooters, the all-new Razor HD 5-20x50 is a state-of-the-art long-range performer—built on a solid 35mm one-piece tube and packed with more than a dozen unique performance and optical features.
First Focal Plane Subtensions remain consistent throughout magnification range.
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.
35 mm 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 Return (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 (without over-constraining) 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.
MagView Bar Combines a fiber optics magnification indicator with raised rear-facing magnification references for clear viewing in low light conditions. Patent pending.
Radius Bar Fiber optic turret rotation indicator provides illuminated and tactile point of reference for turret rotations. Patent pending.
Fast Focus Eyepiece Allows quick and easy reticle focusing.
Side Parallax Uses an adjustment mechanism on the left side of the riflescope to fine-tune focus to eliminate parallax shooting error.
Sunshade Reduces glare and sun reflection off the objective lens.
Bubble Level Promotes consistent shooting form for optimal accuracy.
ARD Flip Cap Cover Reduces glare and sun reflection off the objective lens.
2 mm Hex Wrench Used for setting the RZR Zero Stop.
