Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope! I recently decided to switch from a red dot to a scope for my AR as most of my shooting at the range is done from distance. My friend has a Crossfire II on his .270 and has had nothing but great things to say about it. After looking through his scope in a variety of different conditions, I ran out to get one, and I couldn't be happier. The glass is as clear as my Leupold and the turrets are well built and easy to adjust. It zero'd within a dozen rounds or so and has held it since. If you want a scope that won't break the bank but offers the clarity of scopes twice the price, I have no issue recommending this

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! I've been hunting Appalachia for nearly 30 years and finally got an opportunity to hunt the wide open flat lands of Wyoming for both Antelope and Mule Deer. A normal kill shot for the average hunter in my area is. I more than 50-yards so to my surprise when my hunting buddy said we'll be shooting 200+ on average then I new I needed an upgrade and this my friends, did the job. My first Mule Deer was taken at just over 400 yards and the Antelope was at 275; this scope is clear and the BDC worked perfectly with my 30-06. I'll never own any other scope and know my children will have a wonderful product long after I'm gone from the earth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent optic for the price!! This scope was purchased over 6 years ago and worked great. Recently noticed a small rattle sound and realized the noise was coming from inside optic. Returned to VTX and received a new scope in 2 weeks! No questions asked, no hassles, no problems. Customer service is second to none!! VTX has earned a customer for life!! I purchased a brand new Strike Eagle from Cabelas yesterday and can't wait to try it out!! I will be replacing all of my fire arm optics with VTX. I couldn't be happier. Thank you, VTX!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Scope This scope came mounted on my Mossberg Patriot .308 as a package deal. Wasn't really sure what to expect in a packaged scope but it has performed well. It was pretty easy to site in and seems to hold zero well. I shot my first buck with the set up last weekend at about 90 yards and the shot went where I aimed--the 165lb 7pt dropped where he stood. For a packaged scope at this price point, I'm not sure you could get much better. There can be a bit of a glare in the eyepiece at daybreak for whatever reason and I wish just a little more light got in sometimes but the fact is that this isn't a high priced scope. All said and done, it gets the job done well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simplicity made into Perfection! This optic is superb. The build quality, fit, and finish is perfect. The elements are incredibly clear, and the controls for focus, zoom, windage, and elevation are second to none. This is my second vortex product after purchasing a Sparc II about a year ago. I continue to be amazed. Please keep up the good work, as I look forward to many more vortex products in my future. I've likely helped sell at least a dozen other products as I recommend them to everyone I know who is in the market for a new optic or a gun that would need one! In addition, I am a Navy vet and your support of our military/vets is much appreciated. Sincerely, A lifetime customer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I'm a newbee to the AR world which is what this is mounted on. My buddy helped me out and had this dialed in on 3 shots. The first time I went to range by myself I was able to hit a tin can at 200 yards. For some, that might not be impressive but for me it was. So far I have about 500 - 1000 rounds though it and it has not moved. Plenty of eye relief and the glass is crystal clear. For someone on a budget that is looking for a quality scope, this is it. Considering their warranty and the price on the Crossfire II, you can't go wrong. Get one, I guarantee you'll like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very solid Overall I like the scope. I put it on an AR shooting 5.56 and had some trouble finding decent mounts to get the scope to proper eye level. I also had trouble deciding which iron sights to pair with the rifle, due to the size of the optic. The look and feel of the scope are great. I enjoy the generous eye relief and ease of use in finding the proper sight picture. I have had some trouble with the rifle holding a zero, specifically while adjusting the scope. Whether this is operator error or not it has been very frustrating, and I am less than pleased with the situation. Enough time on the weapon and I'm sure it will get figured out, just very unhappy in the current state.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding entry level scope. Only Vortex from now on. I purchased the Cossfire II 3x9 V-Brite originally for my muzzleloader. I looked at several different company's products but once I looked at the Vortex line of products, and read the customer reviews, I was sold on them as my choice. The clarity of the scope is second to none in its price range. I have since moved this scope to my AR for use in coyote hunting, and it works flawlessly. Rock solid product. Holds its zero without fail. Wonderful clarity, fast target acquisition. I will only buy Vortex products for any hunting or shooting optics for the rest of my life. I cannot say enough about this company. My brother in law shot my AR one time and he was sold as well. He is now also a loyal vortex customer. Keep up the amazing work.
