Entry level scope

by UTCowboy, from United States, UT Written on August 26, 2014
I chose this illuminated Vortex scope for a recent ar15 build. For the money spent and lifetime guarantee, can not go wrong with Vortex. I was a little disappointed at the weakness of this particular illumination. The only thing that lights up is a center dot and one would think with 11 brightness settings you should be able to see in daylight shooting conditions....

Good value, low price.

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on February 24, 2014
I just purchased this scope and mounted it on a Remington 700 .223 and was able to zero it after two rounds at a 100 yards. The clicks are very audible and no tools are needed to make changes. I could see targets out to 500 yards without changing the magnification. Totally worth the price!
Pros: Very clear optics, magnification
Cons: None that I found...
Would recommend: Yes

As good as my Leupold and Nikon scopes but not near the price. This is my second Vortex scope and I'm very pleased with these.
Pros: Clear optics at low price

Quality Issues ?

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on September 11, 2013
I was looking to assemble an inexpensive, accurate, reliable, American made equipment package (less than $600 including uncle Sam). I started with the Ruger American 30.06 and added the Vortex Crossfire II 3x9 40 with their 1inch aluminum rings. I zeroed it in at the range and fired approx. 60 rounds, mixing 180, 165, and 150 grain off-the-shelf ammo. I was impressed with the performance of both the Ruger and the Vortex scope and was looking forward to a long happy relationship. However, when I returned to the range last week, and began to sight my target, I could not see through the scope. Upon closer inspection, I found the Ocular lens dislodged. I have handled the equipment with extreme care both in storage, transport, and cleaning and was surprised to find the lens dislodged.

I contacted Vortex technical support, and they too were surprised and very apologetic. They e-mailed a pre-paid Fedex label to return the scope for service. All in all Vortex service is very good, people are polite and care about their product and service. Initial contact was 08/27 scope was sent, serviced (repaired not replaced), and returned by 09/11 (God bless America).

HOWEVER, my concern is reliability. A scope should not fail after ~60 rounds, even a $150 scope. If Vortex feels their manufacturing quality cannot withstand the force of a 30.06, then they should indicate the scope is not designed for the caliber. No such information/warning exists, therefore, I am left feeli...

Best Value in rifle scopes out there

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on April 12, 2013
Bought this scope to mount on a ar15 build, for its size, weight and price this will not be the last vortex crossfire 2 I will be purchasing. Images are sharp and clear, light transmission is excellent and the illuminated reticle is bright enough for any situation you would need an illuminated reticle, but not so bright that it is fuzzy or overbearing. Would highly recommend this scope to anyone that is on a budget that still needs a quality piece of glass.
Pros: Clear glass, sharp reticle, illuminated reticle, easy adjustments
Cons: none so far...
Would recommend: Yes

First Vortex added to a Rugewr American

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, IN Written on January 22, 2013
Looking to add a variable power scope to my Christmas present I read many reviews (magazine, mfg, and personal) and decided on a 3-9x40mm Vortex Crossfire. Mounted easily with Vortex low mount rings and all set to go. Just need range time to verify my choice. Will add an update after I get to the range and if I remember.
Pros: Excellent Finish, Great optics
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes

Awesome Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, NC Written on October 19, 2012
When I started shopping for a scope I had a very specific purpose in mind. I wanted a very clear scope with a medium zoom that could be used at night. I needed an optic that would allow me to shoot coyote, foxes, and anything else eating my guinea fowl. Of course these pest where only coming around at night. I have a Leupold VX II 3 x 9 x 50 that I love but using only a yard light 200 yards away, I could make out the intended target, but not the cross hairs. The V-brite retical (illuminated dot) on the Crossfire fit the bill perfectly. The dot has 11 brightness settings, from ultra low to high. Ultra low is almost undetectable even at night. I use setting 4 for 11 pm at night coyote hunting. The dot does not overpower the target. Under bright daylight I just use the traditional cross hairs, not needing the red dot. The crosshairs are very thin and perfect for precision target shooting. The scope is very clear and bright. My Leupold is just a tad bit brighter but again my Leupold is a 50mm objective where as my Vortex is a 40mm. The focus is fast and friendly. Its hard to say how long this scope will last but with the lifetime warranty I dont see how I can go wrong. All of this for a sub $200 scope. Five stars all the way.
Pros: Clarity, brightness,Price, Warranty
Cons: None Yet...
Would recommend: Yes
