Crossfire II 3-12x56 AO Hog Hunter Riflescope

Our mission-specific Crossfire II Hog Hunter riflescope excels when hunting in the lowest light, from early evening to the first glimmer of dawn. Thanks to fully multi-coated optics with anti-reflective coatings, a 30 mm tube and over-sized 56 mm objective lens, hard-core hog hunters can now place shots in heavy cover with the utmost confidence when light conditions are at their worst. The hard anodized single-piece aircraft-grade aluminum tube is nitrogen purged and o-ring sealed for waterproof and fogproof performance. With versatile 3-12x magnification and a rugged build to withstand hard use, the Hog Hunter is one tough customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why no marketing comments on 1 star rating Just ready to hit buy a Vortex hog 56mm when I saw a review by Roger a military guy in Germany with 1 star a month ago in Dec 2017. (Rachel in marketing commented on another review 7 days ago). Vortex needs to comment as to what action is or was taken or being worked. Having been an active duty in Germany it is difficult to get company's attention, so Vortex needs to address his issues or explain in a comment why only his email comment and no followup explanation. Am very happy with my Vortex PST ffp and am ready to buy another Vortex product when Roger's issues or explanation GI overseas complication us resolved or properly addressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Durability I mounted this scope on my AR 6.8SPC II. I went on a hog hunt last weekend in West Texas, killed 1st hog Friday night. Then on Saturday afternoon while driving over some really rough terrain my rifle was ejected from the UTV right into a pile of rocks, went back to camp to test fire and was in disbelief, the scope was dead on. I went out and took another hog right at dark thanks to the lighted reticle. Thanks for building a great scope at a great price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome scope for hunting. The amount of light is awesome. I use the scope to mostly hunt deer. I have a Viper PST 6-24x50, which is awesome for the range and finally shot a 0.1 MOA on my 30-06 with it. I put the Hog Hunter on my DPMS AR-10 .308 and average just about 1 MOA using Federal Match Grade 168gr, which was about the same when I had my PST on the AR-10. If I could load my bullets I am sure I could beat it due to the 1/4" jump but they wouldn't fit into the mag. I just wanted a scope I could shoot before dawn, after dusk, close and long range and through some mountain mist. I have a 16" barrel; therefore, my bullets go sub-sonic just after 800 yards so the 12X is more than enough. This Vortex is great for the job not to mention the price and a life time warranty. I spent several days looking for a scope of this quality having a 30mm tube with 56mm objective and nothing came close unless I wanted to spend 00 and up. Happy Hunting Y'all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for those Porkie Pigs! Got it mounted last weekend on my New Tikka CTR .308. was on paper without a bore sight at 50 yds, and man can you see everything with it. I had a group a pigs out at 200 yds, in high grass, and I could see the momma pig and all 5 of the babies she had with her... The illuminated cross hair will be great for those late evening /night shots where those pesky pigs sneak up at dusk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crisp Image In Low Light - Great Value For Price This scope gives crisp images in low light at dawn and dusk. It hold the image versus a just showing a silhouette and then quickly goes to a grainy background in the transition between no light darkness and twilight. Also, the warrantee is as they stated... had problems with the red dot bleeding and flooding the field of view. I sent the scope back and they replaced it, no questions asked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Little heavy but worth every penny So I bought this scope to mount on my SCAR 17s, then decided to mount it on my AR so my kids can shoot. I've taken many hogs and deer with the AR. I am now looking to buy another one for the SCAR. It's heavy and bulky but the illuminated reticle is everything you need. The 56mm objective brings in tons of ambient light, great for sitting in a blind or in heavy cover/brush like where I'm at. I love this scope and can't wait to get another one... Just exercise cause you'll need to

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great scope with some nice features I run this scope on my AR15 I have set up for coyote hunting. The illuminated dot is great for low light and 56mm lens lets lots of light in. Only thing is that I wish the focus adjustment wasn't where it is so could run scope caps. Otherwise great scope!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this scope. I love this scope and all the other Vortex scopes. I have sold all my Nikons and Leupold scopes and have swapped over to all Vortex products. From red dots to long range and precision rifle scopes Vortex is the way to go. This particular scope is great for shooting in low light hunting situation. Again can't say enough good things about Vortex products.

Purchased a T/C Compass .300 WinMag. Looking at this scope, with picatinny rail from EWG. Will the Hunter high rings work with this set up, or the Pro high rings.

Asked by: Gman
I would go with the 30 mm Pro Rings in high height for your setup.

I'm thinking about getting this scope for my ar. What would be the best rings? I saw something in one of the answers using 3" offset? Just curious on what to use.

Asked by: Cris
You'll want to use one of our Sport Cantilever Mounts. The 2" offset will be fine unless you are rather tall, 6'3" or above, I'd go with the 3" offset.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rooter Hunting with the Crossfire II As a Pro Staff hunter for NiteSite America and a personal guide for night hunting rooters, quality optics are essential for continued success. After using Leopold and Nikon for years I heard great things about Vortex and after looking at several models decided on the Crossfire II 3-12x56 AO Hog Hunter. The 56mm opening was perfect for the equipment I use that benefits from large light gathering as it looks through the scope and shows the image on a small monitor mounted on the scope. The adjustable dot also shows perfect on the screen and provides a bright, sharp view perfect for shot placement and internal recorder of the night gear. The included lens shade prevents refraction from the IR light beam. I am blown away with the quality of this very affordable lens and can't wait to try one of their higher end models next. Keep up the great job ya have a customer for life!! Wild Bill Texas Select Seasonings Nite Site America
