The razor lht is not comparable to the bushnell dmr2 line of scopes. Different scope for a different purpose. If you are asking about the clarity of the two, the Razor is much much clearer and sharper.
I really like my Razor LHT. The power ring and parralax dial are very stiff which is my only gripe.
My 3-15x42 is a great scope for the money. I love how you zero the turret (probably my favorite of all time). The zero stop is a great design that is quick and easy.
I really only have two minor complaint about the scope. Although the scope has great resolution in the center of the optic, I find the edge clarity to be lacking slightly. And on 15x the optic has a fairly finicky eyebox. I much preferred this optic over my Mark 5 HD 3-18. I thought the Mark 5 HD was lacking way to much pure resolution for the price tag. But the LHT is still not the scope my AMG or Kahles 6-24 was, nor do I expect it to be.
For the price tag the LHT is a great lightweight scope and my go to predator hunting optic.
Some hide vendors have this scope under $800 shipped and for that price, it's astounding. Ive done tracking tests on mine out to 10 Mil and it's been PERFECT. Slick scopes, I'm getting ready to buy my 2nd.
Have you adjusted the ocular to increase the resolution for your eye? I have several original light hunters in 1.5-8x and 2-10x and found that even though I could see the reticle just fine, adjusting the ocular/reticle focus forward several full revolutions from the factory setting greating increased the clarity of the scope for my eyes. Particularly "edge clarity" as you note.
I also have ONE of the new Razor LHT scopes in 3-15x42 with Milrad reticle and adjusted the ocular inward several turns from factory setting and find the clarity astoundingly good.....clear out to the edges.
Comparing on Tripod......side by side it has bested Steiner P4xi 4-16x56 and Athlon Ares ETR for resolution/contrast clear to the edges.
Hope that helps
I have tired adjusting a few turns in and a few turns out, but I have not tried it throughout the whole adjustment range. I did notice the reticle always stayed clear as you described. I'm going to try that throughout the entire adjustment range in the next few days and see if it clears up my edge clarity. I sure hope it works because that would literally make this scope perfect for my application !
I own a couple in MOA. They’re a near-perfect hunting scope. Best combination yet of size, weight, magnification range, turrets, reticle, glass, mounting space, eye relief, and price. And you can chose between MOA or MIL! It’s everything the Leupold VX-5/6 should have been. We’ll see how it hunts this fall.
I have one on a kidd Supergrade. Solid for shooting groups with my heavy barrel in and also going to use for squirrel hunting this winter. My only concern is the power ring is extremely stiff. Almost Shockingly stiff. Can that loosen up over time? I ordered a throw lever for it tonight for it to hopefully help. I change the power constantly when squirrel hunting.
