    Opinions? Vortex razor LH 2-10 vs Swarovski z3 3-9

    Morning guys,

    Decided to jump on one of those savage ultralites and give it a whirl but now I canít decide on glass, everything Iíve used in the past is way heavier than Iíd be comfortable putting on this gun, both these scopes are within $40 of each other, anyone have experience with both??


    thanks in advance !

    cheers.

    2-10 razor LH had been discontinued unless you already have one, great scope though I have one on my creedmoor with the g4 reticle

    found a store with 3 in stock.. had been looking for it for a while, then noticed the Swarovski on sale as well... I don’t think either is a bad choice but would love some more first hand opinions. Glad to hear you enjoy the 2-10.. makes me feel a bit more confident !

    I have the Swaro Z3 3-9X36 mounted on my custom 338-06 ... terrific glass with the 4A reticle. Tried Vortex some time ago ... no longer in my lineup.

    Ive owned a couple Razor LH scopes, great glass but I do not care for the reticles offered. Hopefully they relaunch a similar scope in the near future but with new reticles and a turret. The Z3 3-9x36 is a great little scope. Another one worth a look would be the Leupold Vx3i 3.5-10x40 with the new CDS ZL with locking turret.

    My favorite light(ish) hunting scope is the Swarovski Z5 2.4-12x50 BT, it weighs 16oz. Amazing glass and the BT turret is my preference over a bullet drop reticle

    The Z3 would be my choice, having used one before.

    apparently the LH replacement should be out by this fall. Couldn’t get any info on it though.

    Just get the Swarovski Z3, 3-10 x 42. Nothing better exists in a light riflescope.
