Vortex 4.5-27x56 Razor HD Gen II Riflescope


Designed and built for precise long-range shots in extreme environments, the Vortex 4.5-27x56 Razor HD Gen II Riflescope combines superior optical and construction elements to produce a rugged scope for hunters and tactical professionals alike.

Engineered with a broad zoom range, an oversized objective, superior glass, and specialised optical coatings every optical component complements the other to provide clear and bright images at all magnifications and lighting conditions, especially when sighting a smaller target at extreme ranges on the highest zoom. The apochromatic lens is made of high-density (HD) extra-low dispersion (ED) glass to maximise light transmission, minimise distortion, and virtually eliminate chromatic aberration. All air-to-glass surfaces have Vortex's index-matched XR Plus anti-reflective coatings which are specifically formulated for the glass to which they are applied to minimise light loss and maximise image brightness, clarity, and colour accuracy. This combination of coatings and optics, combined with its broad magnification range and MIL-based ranging reticle and turrets, creates a riflescope uniquely capable of precise long-range shots.

An array of construction details protect the precision optics and enable the scope's use in the most extreme conditions. It is made of lightweight and durable aluminium alloy treated with a low-reflectivity and scratch-resistant matte-black anodised finish. The 34mm diameter one-piece main-tube is oversized for additional strength and maximum light throughput and allows for the wide elevation adjustment range that smaller tubes couldn't provide. It is filled with inert argon gas and O-ring sealed to make the entire scope waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme changes in temperature or environmental conditions. A 4" removable sunshade is included to reduce glare and prevent lens flare when pointing the scope in the direction of the sun.


Ideal for long-range use, the powerful 4.5-27x zoom magnification allows user to see a wide landscape for observation with the ability to zoom in and make positive identification

Large, oversized 56mm objective is optimised for use during pre-dawn and dusk hours and ensures views remain bright and clear even when set at maximum zoom

Proprietary XR Plus anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics are index-matched to the specific glass they are applied on to maximise light transmission for accurate colour fidelity and improved contrast and clarity

Apochromatic objective lens system uses complementary lens glass that provides accurate colour balance without distortion

High-density (HD) extra low-dispersion (ED) glass corrects chromatic and spherical aberrations to eliminate off-axis comas and improve colour and contrast

Plasma Tech coating application process enhances coating's durability and long life

ArmorTek ultra-hard scratch-resistant coatings protect from scratches, debris, dirt, and oil
