  • Razor HD gen ii turrets

    Do you have to do something with the turrets on a new 4.5-27 scope? None will unlock.

    Iíve got the vortex amg and itís the same way. And it hasnít gotten any easier over time either.

      Weight and movement of the controls are the only things I don't like about Vortex, I guess they've got to save money somewhere.

          Yes you do have to pull that hard. Got some tight engineering

            The controls move just fine. The locking turrets are tight at first but smooth up with use. They are made tight. The clicks are tactile and audible as they should be. Been running them over 3 years now without an issue.

              Vortex makes good scopes, for the money. Iím sure youíve used more expensive scopes that have smoother controls. The magnification ring on my Razor is way too difficult to adjust, just like every one Iíve tried which is a hassle to put it mildly. My point is, you canít expect a a company to be able to manufacture a product competing against more expensive products without compromise.

                My G2 was fairly tight the first time I pulled up to unlock the turrets. After a little time they settled in, and are now perfect IMO. The mag ring wasnt bad, I never ordered a throw lever for it. My PST on the other hand, was very stiff and needed the throw lever, lol.

                  Throw lever will solve the problem of the mag stiffness. If it's still hard to move with the throw lever make sure your scope rings aren't too tight.

                    What kind of rings do you use? I really like the ARC (American Rifle Company) rings https://www.eurooptic.com/american-r...ht-30-moa.aspx because I feel that they grip the scope evenly and securely and that even grip imparts minimum stress into the mechanics of the scope.

                        I'm not one of the guru's here, but if it were me I would toss that in the trash. Too many problems have been traced to vertically split mounts and in my opinion there is no reason to have one. Get yourself a ARC, Spuhr, Gessele, or an Addmount. Then if you still have a problem send your scope in to have the manufacture fix it.

                          What problems have you had with LaRue mounts?

                            I have no particular knowledge about LaRue, it is not your choice of LaRue that is suspect it is your choice of any vertically split mount.

                              Thanks for that link. All I see in that thread is correlation, as we know, correlation is not causation. You can say some vertically split rings are bad but you caníít say vertically split rings are bad, from what was in that thread. Iíím using the LaRue mount on a carbine with a scope I doníít dial (Razor 1x6), I wouldníít put a quick detach mount on a precision rifle.

                                I have used many more expensive scopes and they also feel the same as being very tactile and audible. It's good to have them like that. You don't want knobs to spin loosely. You want to have to turn them and feel and hear the clicks.

                                The mag ring also gets easier with use. If it's too much get a MGM Switchview. They make a cheaper plastic version that works great and is only $19. I just installed one on a Gen II 3-18x.

                                There is no compromise. Tight tolerances aren't a compromise.
