Default Razor HD 27-60 x 85 Angled Spotting Scope

Hello everyone, quick question. I have a chance to get this scope new for $1200. I mainly shoot 100 to 600 yards target shooting, no hunting.

Would this be a good deal for me, or is there better for the same price?

That is a quality scope. The only "better" scope would be the Kowa Prominar, but you would be spending more.

While “better” may be more of a personal choice, you might also look at the previous model (20-60x85) depending on what specifics you need. The latest model is slimmer in design, has a diffrent focus ring, and has a wider FOV at the lower power setting. IMHO, they took what was basically a static position optic with the first gen and made it more applicable to hunters and others that wanted a more mobile-friendly optic with easier controls. I have been using the first gen for years and have no need to purchase the latest model as I don’t gain anything in how I use it. If it’s going to be used for target shooting, you might consider the 20-60 to save you a bit more but if you plan on hauling it around or want the latest thing, the 27-60 may be for you if you need the updated features. Either one is a good optic and 1200 for the latter is a good price.
