    Vortex Razor Gen 3 1-10x

    Found on the inter webs

    Interesting if legit 1-10x with a 34mm tube. Looks like a competitor to the NF ATACR 1-8x.

    In the desert, looking for water.
    Huh. Wonder if itís long enough for a Model 70 standard length action. Right on the top end of the weight Iím willing to put on it, though.

    Obligatory "big if true".

    I highly doubt the optic would have identical dimensions to the 1-6x, and doubt even more that it would weigh the same, as this supposed leaked catalog page claims.

    I also find it strange that they're calling the MOA reticle a "BDC MOA" reticle without giving it its own name. Usually, when Vortex reticles have the same name, they have the same design and principle, just in the two different units of measurement. A BDC reticle would get its own separate name.

    If this product is truly arriving in this footprint and at that weight it will be revolutionary. Buuut I'm not putting any dollars on it happening this year.

    I keep holding out that the trend to make 1-8 and 1-10 optics fit the body of the 1-6 versions means that weíll get even lighter 1-6 options, but so far that doesnít seem to be the way things are headed.

    Iím still looking for a sub-16oz 1-6 thatís daylight bright. I donít know that I even care about FFP or SFP at this point.

    I'd agree with this generally, but I'd also like to see it in the ~2-12 range as well. I dream of having a lightweight 2-12 or 2-10 scope with a usable mil reticle that is less than 20oz.

    Have to pay to play. This is one of the few 1-x LPVís that is truly daytime bright. I feel sure you have looked through mine. I used it in the Defoor advanced rifle class we did as well as plenty of local matches. Itís brighter than my Aimpoint.

    If I could use this on duty I would. Website says 15.5oz. The only drawback other than price is they seem to only have one reticle on the 1-6 now. I recommend the BRT reticle. Itís basically a mil dot tree. They list it for the newer 1-8. You might have to find a used one to get that reticle in the 1-6.

    Canít speak to the dimensions on the flyer being accurate but Vortex does have a 1-10 Razor coming out.

    As for the reticles, they have two new reticles which look a lot like the NF 1-8 Atacr reticles. Iím guessing this was at least based off of Vortexís submission for the last round of SOCOM optics trials.

    I doubt it.

    The bargains will be on people selling used (in most cases barely used) Gen2 and Gen2e 1-6s on M4C, Arfcom, Lightfighter, P&S etc

    Razors are tanks and Vortex has awesome warranty service. I would not hesitate to buy a used Razor.
