So there I was all set to pick up a Razor HD 2 1-6... and Trijicon came in and fucked everything up.
My main problem is that I can't see worth a shit. I noped out on the 1-4s since 4x really doesn't do much for me. I mean its a crude test, but I've got 2x Primary Arms 4-14 FFP scopes and a 3-LOTS HDMR that I can set to 4x and I don't find it overly helpful. It is hard to explain, but 4x just isn't helpful with how I perceive the world.
Even setting them to 6x isn't great, but it would do - although I get the feeling once I knock the objective lens down that I'll feel like I'm looking through a straw.
I get the feeling 8x would be just fine - assuming the optic was up for it.
Now, I understand that the Razor and Trijicon illuminate their reticles differently. I also understand that I have allegedly good pictures through the Accupower 1-8, but I've not been able to filter through the "AIMPOINT BRIGHT!" and "XYZ DEATH DEALERS OF DOOM USE IT!" to find even functional pictures through the Razor 1-6. I mean I've seen a few... that are the size of a postage stamp... and may or may not have a hint of a red dot that isn't remotely like gazing into a pure red supernova as most people describe.
I'm not saying it isn't a great scope, or that it isn't what I should be buying, I'm just saying that I can't find good pictures. Or the signal to noise ratio is garbage.
Anyone had their hands on both (Accupower in RED)? Thoughts?Anyone have any really solid 'through the tube' pics from the Razor on 1x?
I'll post my Accupower shots with the hopes I'll get some Razor shots in return.Any advice, input, whatever is greatly appreciated.
