i was wonder if any body here has used both the gem 1 and gen 2 razor hd's. I was thinkinging about switching from the gen 1 mil scope to a 2 gen MOA. I'm just wondering if the 2 gen is worth the up grade. thanks for the help
We've got alot of time in with both and the gen 1 is a dang nice scope...but the gen 2 is an awesome scope. The glass is superb and tracking has proved to be spot on based on a dozen or so scopes we've tested. The locking turrets are really nice when it comes to not having to worry about accidentally rotating a turret . If you have any specific questions ask away. The only complaint I've heard is the weight. But let's be honest here if your building a sheep gun you probably should be looking at other sized optics to begin with.
i have a gen 2 4.5-27 mrad 1c . it is hands down an upgrade over the gen 1 and the gen 1 is a great scope. the gen 2 is pretty heavy but im not going to complain about 10 ounces on a 15 lb rifle . the scope is very rugged and the locking turrets are a great design. id say the glass is about 85% of a S&B pm2
the gen 2 also has a true zero stop , not just bottoming out the erector tube
I've also been looking at the differences in these two scopes. I've seen the gen 1 on clearance for just under $1600, is the extra $1000 justifiable? (Subjective I know.) never having owned either, what would you guys go with?
The gen 1 is a fine scope. It's definitely worth the money. The gen 2 is up there with some of the best. So it's up to you how much money you want to spend. The gen 2 ranks with s&b pm2 . The glass is about 80% of the s&b
