A few months back, I posted about the reasons why I use Vortex Optics. Much to my excitement, they have come out with some new and updated products for 2016 that are sure to be a huge hit. Below are 4 of the most exciting new products Vortex is releasing for this year:
Razor LH Riflescope
Top-tier glass and precision machining in an ultrasleek, lightweight package, define the Razor HD LH. Simple, yet elegant, this riflescope is built to exceed expectations— no matter the person or extreme hunts they take it on.
HD (High Density) extra-low dispersion glass, an APO apochromatic lens system, XR Plus premium fully multi-coated lenses and ArmorTek® on exterior lenses combine to deliver stunning image quality. The quality components and technology should result in sharp resolution from edge to edge.
The new HSR-4 BDC and G4-BDC reticles are super clean, yet highly versatile, for optimal target acquisition and pinpoint accuracy.
The body of the scope features a one inch tube diameter and is machined from a single solid block of aircraft-grade aluminum and features a type III hard-anodizing for superior durability and scratch resistance. O-ring seals prevent moisture, dust and debris from penetrating the riflescope for reliable performance in all environments. Argon gas purging prevents internal fogging over a wide range of temperatures.
The Razor LH is sure to be a riflescope that meets the needs of the hunter who wants a superior optic at a great price point.
MSRP – $949-$1099
1.5-8×32, 2-10×40, 3-15×42
NEW Diamondback Binocular Line
Vortex optics completely redesigned their legendary Diamondback binocular series for 2016.
An all new optical system with enhanced, dielectric fully multi-coated lenses should provide impressive low-light performance. An ultra-wide field of view (still one of the best in class) lets you efficiently cover ground and acquire subjects easier.
Rubber armored housing features diamond checkering along the sides along with thumb detents, providing superior ergonomics, incredibly solid purchase and extreme durability. Multi-position twist-up eyecups are comfortable and ensure proper eye relief. Smooth center focus wheel and right eye diopter provide optimal image focus. And with a deep lineup of objective diameters/magnification configurations, there should be a Diamondback binocular to fit your needs.
MSRP – $189-$319
12×50, 10×50, 10×42, 8×42, 10×32, 8×32, 10×28, 8×28
SPARC AR Red Dot Sight
SPARC AR delivers digital rear-facing controls for power and dot brightness in the base that offer quick access and are viewable from the shooting position. 2 MOA dot diameter promotes precise point of aim. It utomatically returns to last dot intensity used when powered up.
Optics are fully multicoated for optimal light transmission in low light conditions. The SPARC AR offers type III hard anodized aircraft-grade aluminum body. Rubber-armor-housing sleeve features integrated flip caps that nest together out of the way when not in use.
The SPARC AR has unlimited eye relief and is parallax free. It automatically shuts off after 12 hours to prevent accidental battery rundown and operates using a common AAA battery.
MSRP – $259
Spitfire 1x Prism Scope
The Spitfire 1x has a generous, parallax-free, sight picture and forgiving eye box to get shooters on target effortlessly. Rear facing power and illumination-intensity controls are easy to access, simple to operate, stay visually present from the shooting position and are protected from incidental contact. Ten intensity levels let you adjust to perfectly match ambient light conditions. Runs off a single, common, AAA battery. Plus, DRT (Dual Ring Tactical) reticle is etched directly on the prism so shooters always have a point of aim— regardless of whether or not the illumination is engaged.
Additional yardage-marked turret cap (ballistic-matched to the 5.56 cartridge) included. This feature also allows the shooter to swap out the factory-installed cap for rapid dialing at longer known distances.
Fully multi-coated lenses offer up bright views. Flip caps keep lenses protected and free of dirt, dust, and debris when not in use. Shockproof construction withstands recoil and impact. Nitrogen gas purging with O-ring seals guarantee fogproof, waterproof performance. It has a 40.4 mm mounting height and hard-anodized matte-black finish.
At 11.2 ounces, this is a very light AR sight.
MSRP – $349
