Product Spotlight: Vortex Razor Red Dot


Look at that field of view!!!
Strongside Tactical has an exciting new optic for purchase immediately, the Vortex Razor Red Dot. I've had a chance to get my hands on this little masterpiece, and boy does it live up to its billing! For those of you in the market for a red dot optic who want to "do it right" the first time, look no further. More after the jump!


Vortex is known for making top quality optics, as a couple in their lineup are big-time favorites among competitive shooters I see frequently in the money. Jerry Miculek himself sports Vortex optics, and if you look close at his AR-15 right now, you'll see the Vortex Razor Red Dot. He keeps his on a 45 degree rail for up close shots and has a low-power scope on the top rail. But for most shooters, the Razor Red Dot is going to be more than adequate as your go-to primary AR-15 optic. I've done an up close and personal review of this optic straight out of the box HERE But here are a few quick hitters on what this optic offers:



  • 3 or 6 MOA dot (3 is preferable in my opinion for up close and precision work)
  • Rugged aircraft grade aluminum body which also encases the reticle
  • Patented anti-reflective coating on glass
  • 10 levels of dot intensity
  • 1 year battery life if optic remains on highest intensity level continuously
  • Integrated picatinny mount
  • Available American Defense Quick Detach Riser Mount
  • Completely water-proof and parallax free
  • Super wide field of view with unlimited eye relief
  • WEIGHS ONLY 1.5 OUNCES!!
For my money, this is one of the top choices out there now for shooters who demand a top quality optic that is durable, dependable, precise, and small. I really can't describe accurately how light and small this optic is. The added 1.5-3 ounces (with riser mount) to the top of your rifle is negligible, and I did not notice it at all. If you're looking for a red dot right now, you really owe it to yourself to check out the Razor. Strongside Tactical has them in stock ready to ship, and as with all products, it will ship free to the lower 48 states. Again, if you want an up close review of the Razor Red Dot, check out my video HERE.

Take care and see you next time guys.

  1. Initially, red dot gadgets used to be the size of a traditional handgun scope. However, over the years their designs have changed and they are now small devices using holographic technology. The best red dot sight in the market is small enough to be practical for hidden carry as well as mount in place of the rear sight.
