    Vortex Razor Gen I and Viper PST Gen II

    Seems like everyone is having huge deals on original Vortex Razor Gen I 5-20x50 due to the Gen II's release. I was able to snag one for 1350 from optics plant and wanted to get an opinion on this vs the Viper pst gen II thats coming out.

    Long story short, i was on a waiting list for the new gen II viper and i was informed it was going to take 4-6 months to get the order fulfilled, so i opted to spend a couple hundred more and go with the Razor.

    Has anyone used a razor gen I? Anyone been lucky enough to get their hands on a PST Gen II? How do they compare?

    Taking the new setup for a test drive this weekend!

    several threads on this exact subject over on snipershide if you want to check out over there. summary is razor gen 1 glass is still slightly better, but the gen 2 pst is no slouch.
    The beatings will continue until morale improves.

    I didn't know they had any PST IIs out yet.

    I have a Razor I like yours but haven't shot with it yet. It is a big step up from my PST Is which have served me very well.
    When it is time to bury them it is time to dig them up.

    I ran the gen 1 razor a good while. Mine is one of the original 5mil turret scopes. It is a pretty solid scope. I will say the factory scope caps are pretty much junk. Mine failed on me once from an assembly type defect but was repaired very fast. Glass was nice. It was a bit dimmer during daylight shooting versus my NightForce but it preformed better in low light. Other than the fact that it is huge and uses the now odd 35mm tube they are a great deal.

    I agree, the scope is large! I had a hard time locating rings for it as well. Everyone was sold out of the 35mm.

    Well see how she does this weekend.
