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 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 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 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 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 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.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from decent scope, no complaints yet best in class when comparing to other scopes in its price range. glass is good, not the best, but lets be honest its a Chinese made lower triple diget price scope. its as good as it gets for the money. I bought it on sale, so for what I paid...it is by far the best illuminated scope ive seen. only complaint I have is there are no scope caps for it.....which is actually a big deal to me, but its not the scopes fault so I cannot apply it to the review score. the scope I originally wanted was discontinues a viper 4-16x50 30mm tube, but with no fancy turrets .....they no longer make a scope of this size outside the crossfire series without all the fancy turrets....you simply don't need that for whitetail and its getting difficult to but high scopes without them. so I settled for the crossfire 3-12x56....ill admit I was skeptical about buying a cheap scope, but I have been pleasantly surprised. any 0-300 yard deer hunter should consider this scope before spending big digets. I haven't used this scope yet other than sighting it in, so well will have to see how it weather in the next few year. the biggest problem ive experienced with most scopes is they are great the first couple of years, then the gas leaks out and they fog up, and they eventually become blurry at full power. I will write a review in a few years to update my opinion but as of now. it appears to be a superior product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product or the money. I bought this at a local gun shop. When I got it it had a finger print or dust on the inside lense. Plus I dropped my rifle and tweaked the tube. So I sent it back and got a brand new one free of charge. It is Chrystal clear and very bright even at dusk. I highly recommend this product if you plan to hunt at intermediate ranges at dusk. Or if you just want a kick butt optic on your AR.

I have a 1946 Savage 99, and considering this 3x12x56 scope. Already have the Leopold 49995 Weaver base on rifle. Would the Leopold .090mm high rings #49959 be adequate? Do I some way measure beforehand? Thanks

With that combination you will want the super high ring height.

Hello Vortex, I just bought the Hog Hunter and will buy one of your Sport Cantilever mounts. My question is how to determine between 2" or 3" offset?

Asked by: BrickhousePig
The 2" offset works in most situations, while the 3" offset will work best when you run your AR stock collapsed and your nose to the charging handle.
