New Vortex Razor AMG UH-1 Gen 2 Holographic Sight: What’s so Special?
The 5 highlights of this new Vortex Razor AMG UH-1 Gen II Holographic Sight are:
- Zero image Distortion: Vortex optics has optimized this new device for speed in the close-quarter shooting.
- Night Vision Compatible: The best thing about this newer version of the Vortex holographic sight is that it comes with 4 night-vision (NV) settings along with a dedicated NV button so that you can make the adjustment faster day and night.
- Larger Viewing Window: In comparison to the Vortex Razor AMG UH-1 Gen 1 Holographic Sight, the AMG UH-1 Gen 2, comes with a larger viewing window so that you can maneuver this sleek and door-kicker faster.
- EBR-CQB Reticle: The engineers of Vortex Optics have incorporated the lightning-fast EBR-CQB reticle, which has been designed for dominating the close-quarter shooting scenario. This reticle is clean, highly versatile, purpose-built so that shooters can engage targets optimally in a wide range of scenarios.
- FHQ Technology: The innovative FHQ technology solves a common problem found in most holographic sights, which is the stray light emissions. The new FHQ technology virtually eliminates stray light emissions for stealth-shooter-signature in low light, preventing the common problem of eyepiece glare (found in most of the holographic sights).

Vortex AMG UH-1 Gen II Holographic Sight 2020: An Improvement over its Predecessor Vortex AMG UH-1 Gen I
Vortex lovers were pleasantly surprised when Vortex Optics took their Vortex Razor AMG UH-1 back into the laboratory to provide more and make it a grand success for close-quarters combat (CQC) shooting, especially for the civilian market.
The first generation Razor AMG UH-1 Gen II Holographic Sight was the answer of Vortex Optics to EOTech holographic sights. Though it was used by the operators of US Special Forces and came with some pretty good features, it was not successful to conquer the civilian market.
That’s when Vortex Optics decided to take the Vortex Razor AMG UH-1 Holographic Sight back to the laboratory and let the engineers work on it for improvements. While the first generation AMG UH-1 appeared in 2017, it took Vortex almost 3-years to bring their improved, updated, and newer second-generation Vortex Razor AMG UH-1 Gen II Holographic Sight.
Vortex Razor AMG UH-1 Gen II vs. Vortex Razor AMG UH-1 Gen I: What’s New in 2020?
The newer version of the Vortex holographic sight is now available in the market. So, let’s take a quick look at the improvements the Vortex engineers have incorporated in this new Vortex Razor AMG UH-1 Gen 2 Holographic Sight:
#1 NV Compatibility: The first and most important improvement in Razor AMG UH-1 Gen II with respect to the first-generation sight is that the former comes with night vision compatibility, 4-night-vision (NV) settings, and a dedicated NV button.
#2 Lighter Optic: The new Vortex Razor AMG UH-1 Gen II Holographic Sight weighs just 11 ounces, lighter than the Gen 1 (which weighed 11.08 oz). The overall weight gets reduced.
#3 Enlarged Viewing Window: Razor AMG UH-1 Gen II comes with an enlarged viewing window, thereby helping close-quarter shooters in the faster engagement of the target.
#4 Toolless Battery Cover: The new generation Vortex holographic sight comes with a toolless battery cover, which helps in faster and easier battery changes or removal.
Other features that make Vortex Razor AMG UH-1 Gen II Holographic Sight a better proposition than many other Vortex models are the FHQ virtually no forward signature, large field-of-view, the quick-release mount, and insanely fast EBR-CQB reticle.
Vortex Optics has priced (MSRP) this new generation Vortex Razor AMG UH-1 Gen 2 Holographic Sight at just $799.99. However, you can buy it at a much lesser price at a much lower price (Check Here). If you are looking for a holographic sight with an innovative and fast reticle ( EBR-CQB reticle with red dot) for law enforcement, military, and hunting (especially for close-quarter shots), Vortex Razor AMG UH-1 Gen II Sight is the best device.
