Great scope for the Money!

by Mutley, from United States, GA Written on March 15, 2015
We hunt hogs at dusk and during the night time. This scope was mounted on my AR-10 with the 1 inch rings from vortex with no issues. Bore sighted my AR first then adjusted with ease. Hit the paper with the first shot and zeroed in by the third shot. Then zeroed the scope back to the zero, for further ease of adjustment. I purchased the BDC reticle and was able to hit 12in objects out to 400 yards with ease. First night out hunting hogs, I could see things my hunting partner could not with his Leupold. The 50mm gives it a clarity better in my opinion then leupold and a fraction of the cost! Combine this with the green light on my AR-10 in total darkness I was able to see hogs out at 300yards easily...that part you need a good green light, but even with a 200lumens light 200 yards is obtainable. First shot, put the hog down no problem, put the second one down with ease as well.

Pros:
Easy to mount with the vortex rings
easy to sight in
easy to adjust back to zero (take off screw, adjust it and put the screw back in)
50mm coated scope lets in a LOT of light and clarity is crystal clear
easy to focus and adjust between 3 to 9
works great in daylight and night time hunting
have been working and firing this off a .308 AR...has stayed on target
I've obtained sub moa with my reloaded cartridges at 200 yards...factory loads are MOA at 200 yards (bullet loads matter) This scope with the gun outshoots me is the bottom line!
VORTEX lifetime warranty is just like Leup...

Biggest bang for the "BUCK"

by Cookie Vaquero, from United States, OR Written on January 28, 2015
I needed a scope for my very first rifle my Dad bought me. A Remington 788, 243. This is my trusty Cyote gun that had a cheap Taco mounted on top.
1st impressions of the Vortex out of the box was "wow glass is clear and bright". Mounted it up, bore sighted, and took it to the desert to dial it in. After all said and done at 100 yards, groups of 3 covered by a quarter! My feeling is for the $ spent on this low end scope is you simply can not beat it. I have some nice scopes that cost $$$ and cheap scopes that are, well cheap. For the $140 I paid for this I'm totally stoked!!! I have since bought Vortex for my AR, and am considering a Viper HS LR for my Sendero....
Pros:
  • Clear, bright optics
Cons:
  • None

Hunter, Camper, Recreational Shooter

by dski73, from United States, CO Written on August 13, 2014
I mounted this scope on a 10/22 with a bull barrel. If you want to reach out and touch some prairie dogs, this will do the trick. It might be a little of an overkill for some, but when you're looking for tiny targets, this is the scope for you....

vortex crossfire 11 scope to optics planet

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 10, 2014
I just fired my rifle yesterday . At 1oo yds . the crossfire 11 3x9x50 model cf231027 performed excellent . After the scope was bore-sighted, I adjusted the elevation 1 mil , and the windage 2 mils or quarter clicks . After adjusting , a group of 3 fired shots were all kissing each other within the size of a nickel . I kept the target as proof . I pan to buy another in the near future , as I have no doubt that it will perform well a much longer distance . Adjusting is a very simple easy task ....

I just mounted my vortex scope model cf231027 on a collector rifle Win.model 670 in 30.06 The scope looks awesome .The clarity is as crisp as a high end swaroski that I had and sold that cost at least 6 times as much as this one . I'm an ex Army ranger /scout/sniper , I think I should know . The scope is excellent , & will see when I fire my rifle tomorrow .
Pros: so far it's all good . I'll see when I fire my win 30.06...

Vortex quality

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 12, 2014
I spent some time working with a few Vortex 3 - 9 x50s. It is NOT A CHINA scope so if you bought one don't worry till you shoot it. It is a very good choice for a carbine that does close work or out to about 250 yards. It will surprise you. However, it is not a Leopold or a Burris. The optics are clear and the 50mm objective works very well to brighten things up. I wouldn't take it on a night drop in Afghanistan but I would use it for hunting and, I do. They are made in the Philippines and their offices are in the USA. It is a good value. Their high end scopes are very good. None of their scopes are Burris Black Diamonds that is an elite club. By far the very best scope the USA ever produced. Some may argue that but unfortunately at my age and years of long range instructing and usage I know they just don't know. People will argue forever when their ill-informed. You only need a very high end scope for 2 reasons your life depends on it or, youre going hunting. For that a Vortex can't be beat for value. Most of my "students" like them on the carbines.
Pros: Cost vs usability
Cons: Some have 1" tubes. Not a big deal but a 30mm tube is stronger and they have some....

Good value great carbine scope.

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 12, 2014
I have this on a 7.62 Wilson Tactical carbine. It is perfect for it. The 50mm objective allows for a quick shot. CQB is easy as well as that 250 yard shot. A very good value. Though I will only buy USA manufacture for top of the line guns and gear I risk my life with, this scope works well for a carbine. My students all liked it as a carbine/CQB/ mid range scope. Best thing... It's not made in Asia! It is at least made in an American providence. I would recommend this scope on a Deer hunting carbine out to 250 yards. Good value. The top of the line scopes made in USA can cost $4000. Beware of misleading scopes that are made in Asia (China)with high prices. They will claim they are USA but they will rip you for around $2000 to make you believe you are getting a high quality scope deal. Some persons will get down right childish when they find out they were fooled. Read badshot330's review of the NightForce 32x56 NXS when he found out! It is understandable . No one wants to be fooled. These reviews are awesome and will help you (Thanks Optics Planet!). Scan and see how many persons check the box "helpful" vs "Not Helpful" you will know right away what to take to heart. Good shooting!
Pros: Good eye relief very fast works for CQB
Cons: Not for combat. A 30mm tube would help strength...

Good scope for under $200.00

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, GA Written on December 19, 2013
This is a great scope for the money but don't expect high quality clarity at full power. For a hunting scope out to say 300 yards it is very good for the price.
Pros: V-Brite works good, especially in low light
Cons: Not the clearest focus at 9X...
