MAC Does the Vortex Razor Red Dot by Dan Zimmerman | Apr 15, 2013 | 9 comments facebook twitter linkedin email The colonel gives the Vortex Razor red dot a good going over…and likes what he sees. comments William Burke says: April 15, 2013 at 16:21 Well, it’s always an option. A better comparison to the Vortex might be the venerable EOTech. Let’s see THAT comparison. Same price range. Reply JMS says: April 15, 2013 at 16:23 I wish I could consider a $600 red dot “mid priced” haha. Gotta work harder I guess! Reply Brian S says: April 15, 2013 at 17:28 well, you can get it for anout $430 thru that link in the video, but yeah… Reply My Name Is Bob says: April 15, 2013 at 19:15 Is it just me, or is anybody else confused as to why these things should cost more than $50-$100. I don’t understand what makes a $700 eotech cost that much! Reply oopsdidisaythatoutloud says: April 15, 2013 at 23:57 I wanna know how they avoid parallax issues. Isn’t there just one lens? Reply Lolinski says: April 16, 2013 at 01:06 Optics are hard to make. It is even harder to make good optics, that is why they are expensive. That and the fact that people earn more here in Europe where many expensive, quality optics are made. Reply John L. says: April 16, 2013 at 09:16 Clarity of glass (or whatever optical material), correct surface profile, good surface finish, assorted coatings (which also have to be of high quality) all make good optics hard to do right. Now put them together correctly, eg well-aligned. Also often not trivial to do well. Now add shockproof mounting and alignment systems (recoil hits everything attached to the gun) to the price tag. Add it all up and even a seemingly simple optical system can get pretty expensive.
