Looks like new release 12/2016, but reviews are sketchy and most buyers have been waiting for delivery. Opines would be appreciated. MK

The one he is asking about is First Focal Plane:

I can't say on the one he is asking about, but I have the Razor HD, and quite like it.

Thanks from OLDGUY55 and JEFFJP_N_JJ

I have mostly cheap (sorry, lower-cost-of-ownership) Vortex products and like them all. Really like the warranty!

I really dislike higher magnification scopes. After 16x the mirage plays games.

I currently have several of the 3-15 Gen IIs - 2nd FP. Waiting on a 5-25 Gen II - 2nd FP. I can say that I'm VERY impressed with the improvements from the Gen I of which I have 3. Every feature and I mean every single feature of the scope has been improved. Excellent value!

The only negative I have is purely tactical. The Razor style turrets "can" get in the way of a red dot mounted at 45 degrees. Again, just a tatical issue!

P.S. I think it'll take awhile for 1st FP Gen IIs to hit the market, but they'll be worth the wait!

Thanks from OLDGUY55
