    Thanks for all the advice, I went ahead and pulled the trigger on the Gen III Vortex. I'm waiting on a few final parts to come in and I'll have the gun all built up and probably do some shooting in the next few weeks.

    For 0 to 400 yds I still like my 14.5" inch barreled upper with the Kahles K16i 1-6X with the G4B reticle. I recently added an ACRO P2 at 12 o'clock, and in it's role it works just fine *for me*.

    I like it. The 11.75 handguard was just what I was looking for in the way of its length and rigidity.

    Cool I am thinking of using it on a 13.9" build and am pleased to see the RS XOS work well.

    I had to file all but the end M-lok locator lugs off the back side of the RS XOS rail scales so they would work with the Ripcord handguard.

    I was lucky enough to be able to try a Razor 3 extensively before buying, and am glad I got that opportunity. Even at an incredible price I walked away.

    The PA PLXc might be good, but I haven't actually used one yet. Only optics that actually impressed me hard was the Khales and Swaro.


    My daily driver is a P4Xi. What it lacks in top end magnification it makes up for in every other way that makes an LPVO great.

    Why? Im close to trading my PLx for a Razor 1-10 just because I know that scope and have been pleased with it.

    So I sort of understand this as I put my Razor 1-10x on my 16" AR10/308, and it really does excel at that role. The 1x has a slight fish eye effect and the eyebox at 10x is just as bad as a 4x Acog, but in a rifle you are mainly either up right with and then prone this thing is perfect, for a barriers, or other awkward position this leaves a lot to be desired, I really regret selling my 1-6x Viper because it did such a good job at being a Red dot, while providing me with 6x magnification, the 1-10x's and even 1-8x that I've played with are almost too focused on a precision scope and not enough on being a Dot

    I think a lot of it just depends on environment and mission/application. I live in Utah, where there are a lot of open spaces to shoot out to 1,000+ yards, so i appreciate a little extra magnification on the top end. But for many, 4-6x may be plenty of magnification. Even though the Vortex Gen III Razor offers extra magnification, I think the Razor Gen II 1-6 is still an extremely useful LPVO for many situations, and has a more useable red dot.
