  • elevation turret with turn indicator
  • precise zeroing

Exposed, locking turrets move 120 MOA up/down and 52.5 MOA left/right. Click values depend on the model variant - 1/4 MOA or 01.

The glass quality is the second major upgrade of Razor III series. Despite its sheer size, the multicoated 56mm lens won't easily expose the shooter's position thanks to the anti-glare matte surface.

89mm of eye relief guarantee comfortable viewing longer, on all magnifications.
