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 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 One of the best in class! As a prior Vortex owner (6-18 x 44 Crossfire II) I knew that Vortex makes a great product. I got this in a package with a Remington 783 Walnut in .30/06. The whole deal was $299, and with this scope on it I had to jump. I love the Dead Hold reticle, and the crosshairs are nice and thin; great for more precise shooting while hunting. The turrets are easy to use and fairly precise. I know that this scope will earn it’s keep, but if something happens the VIP warranty is there. I look forward to many hunts with this combo and hopefully more Vortex products in the future. There are many solid options in this class but with the quality and warranty Vortex provides, they’re hard to beat.

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 Replacement My optic was damaged wile it was installed due to over tightening from the place of purchase. They would not honor the installation. Vortex took care of me. Thanks again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT!!! I love my 3-9X40. I've had it on my 5.56 AR15 and then swapped it over to my 700 SPS tactical .308. It's been outstanding and durable and heald up through a ton of abuse. I've had it now about 2-1/2 years and i can't get enough of it. The glass clarity is the best i've ever had. Only downside is i wish i had a 4-16 power since i have it on a larger caliber now. Buy it!! it's worth the money and then some!!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I bought the Crossfire ll 3-9x40 scope on a combo rifle (6.5 Creedmoor). Took it out of the box, went outside check the ret in the sky, put it back in the case. Took it out to the range (Uncle's property) today. Scope was dead on, 4 rounds (1 flyer, expected) at 100 yds. Same consistency at 150-200 yards. A bell set up at 400 yds (325 yds in range finder), rang it 3 out of 4 times. I don't shoot long distance like that, so that is awesome. If shooting LONG distance, you may want to go with something different, in my opinion, but this will get the job done. I love it. About to order another one for my 308.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Clarity I bought this scope a year ago and used it for hunting.. the clear focus I received made it much easier to put the crosshairs on my game! Thank you also for your warranty. I recommend Vortex to my hunting partners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope for a good price! I bought this scope to use on a deer gun with a slug barrel and could not be more happy! My favorite feature about this scope is the v-brite reticle. The fact that there are multiple different settings of brightness makes it extremely versatile in many different light settings. Also, I like the fact that if the battery does die, there is still a black reticle, so you are still able to make a confident shot. The clarity of the glass for the price point is second to none, and I am very happy with the purchase. I am completely satisfied with the Vortex brand, and will continue to be in the future! Thanks for the great quality products at affordable prices, with a bulletproof warranty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best rimfire scope I’ve had the crossfire II on both my .22’s for just over a year and I could not recommend it more. It has been used and abused every single day in and out of the Ute, riding on the quad around the farm, and I’ve never had a single problem or lost zero. I could not recommend it more as a reliable and durable scope yet lightweight. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Glass Better Price Bought a 3-9X40 for one of my hunting rifles and after seeing how it did I ended up buying another one. Scopes were on a .270WSM and .300 WinMag. Great low budget scope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope I am far from an expert on scopes and there capabilities. I have never had Vortex before this scope. I would always buy the cheap knockoffs and when I got this scope packaged with my Ruger American. I was amazed at the difference in clarity. I haven't had any issues with zero. Vortex has definitely won me as a customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small Game with Low Risk This optic for the price is a great budget optic for a small varmint gun, or entry level rifle. In my case I have this mounted to my CZ455 Varmint for plinking and varmint control. Holds Zero, and sighted in quickly like all Vortex do. No fogging issues, or glare issues. Most scopes in the prices range dont have enough sunshade on the front and you get a glint or glare. This does not have the issue and is perfect. I own 3 of 2 are on my precision .22's and 1 is sitting on an AR15 setup for HOG. They are amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for your buck Bought a Mossberg Patriot package deal which came with this scope. Based on previous experience with Vortex, I had no doubts about quality, and I needed a scope for a new .22LR. So I purchased a Diamondback and replaced the Crossfire on the Mossberg, and put the Crossfire on the .22LR. The Crossfire is probably overkill for a .22 LR, but it sure does make plinking fun. Vortex makes some great optics. I have several and haven't had any issues yet! My next scope will almost certainly be another Vortex product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I sold so many I had to get one I work for one of the major sporting good retailers. Customers were constantly coming in asking for the crossfire II by name. Most were looking for quality combined with value. This is hands down our best option. Some would look at it and upgrade to the next tier, but most were more than happy with the crossfire for their needs. After selling more than several i finally spent my hard earned and got one for myself. Absolutely love it. Cant see me swapping brands ever. As i aquire more rifles ill always put a vortex on it. Vortex scopes will always be the way i lean when selling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sceptical To be truly honest I was very skeptical about the Vortex range. I bought the scope only for the price it was available to me mainly for hunting. After fitted on my Lee Enfield no 1 mark 4 I hit the field for setting and target practice and Wow. What a great view through that lenses. I know that I must hit the field soon looking for deer. I could not wait to show everyone this excellent peace of work for that price range. Truly the best little money can buy. I convinced a friend buying one and he is more than satisfied. Looking at one to buy for my dad hunting with 308.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value After much searching stores and reading reviews the Vortex Crossfire ll stood out. Went to local store and looked at crossfire ll 3-9x40 BDC. Mounted it on my .270 WIN and bore sighted it and headed to the range. After (3) 3 shot groups at 50 yards I had it hitting 1/2" high, some of the holes touching. Moved to 100 yards and after only (2) 3 shot groups had it hitting the 1" bullseye. Cannot wait to try it at 200 and 300 yard ranges. LRBC was very helpful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product and a great value Bought a new deer rifle and needed a scope, what drew me to Vortex was the warranty they offer. When I found this scope I wasn't sure, because of the price, on how good of a scope it would be. But I was amazed on the clarity and quality of the scope, just as good as my other scopes that I paid twice as much for. My only regret is that I did not buy the 50mm objective instead of the 40mm. Great product for the money and I talked my bro in law into purchasing the scope in 50mm and he is just as impressed with his. Definitely will be purchasing more Vortex products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crossfire II 3x9x40 v-brite I am very satisfied with this scope I was looking for simple scope with lighted retical didn't want a lot of lines or dots I usaally only shoot out to 300 yards and I can judge where I have to aim if one knows how much bullet drop you have and I usaally go out and shoot out to 400 yards and write down the drop after I have it sighted in at 100 yards I don't go by computer dope sheets I prefer to know what my ammo is actually performing at I would recommend this scope also I sight it in on the power I will be hunting with which is 9 I find that when you change from 3 to 9 bullet hits different spot that is why I leave it on 9 wish could afford a $2000 scope where didn't have to worry about this with different focal plain

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Buy For a QUALITY Scope This is my second Vortex scope, and the performance of my first one led me to this one. To put it simply, this is the best value, quality scope on the market today. I was looking for a reasonably priced optic to mount on my mini-14. Since the mini is not a bench rest tack driver, I wanted something reasonably priced, yet QUALITY. So I went on my search. Internet, YouTube, Store, etc. The base line I used was how well the other scopes stacked up against the Crossfire II, the first scope I looked at. End of search, NONE OF THEM DID ! This is the best deal anywhere. Good to great glass, will take the pounding of the mini, and if it doesn't, it's backed by the best warranty in the business. Way to go Vortex, another home run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crossfire II 3-9x40 This is a lot of scope for the price. Host Gun: Ruger American Ranch in .223 This scope is on my truck rig. It goes where ever my truck goes. Great clarity for the price. This is one tough scope. It bounces around on my Ruger in the passenger seat over terraces, through drainage ditches and over corn fields. Even after all that, I know it will holds its zero. Its not Vortex's best or brightest scope, but for the money spent its the perfect fit for what I do with it. Plus no matter what, Vortex will stand behind it if something were to happen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't beat this scope for the price Great scope for the price. Clear glass, good light transmission, nice crisp crosshairs. Accurate. I used Nikon scope mounts to put this on my AR. Never had problems keeping zero. I do wish the V-Brite reticle had bullet drop. The only downside to the scope for me was it ended up being a tad smaller than I was wanting. This was no fault of the scope. I ended up selling this scope to pick up the bigger 4-12x Crossfire II.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely the clearest riflescope I've ever owned I put a Crossfire II 3-9x40 on my ar15 5.56 build. First off great clear reticle. Fast acquisition of the target through the scope. The zoom adjustment is buttery smooth, same thing with the focal plane adjustment. Deadhold reticle is an outstanding reticle, clear drop hashes, very clear cross hairs. The one thing I have any problem with, and it's not even really a problem for me is, that I wish the turrets weren't capped but I suppose those are more expensive so I can deal. Any way. Great product, love it, and would definitely recommend to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This scope started my vortex collection! I purchased this scope for my Mini30. I was searching for a well priced scope that I wasn't afraid if it took a beating or not. I bought this scope because the glass was as clear as other scopes that were 2 or 3 times the price. I picked this up and mounted to my rifle with zero knowledge of the brand or the quality. The price was right for a scope that I figured would work until I found something else. Needless to say ........ It is still on my Mini30 several years later. I have used this scope to show other friends that you can get a fantastic quality scope for a good price. As the title indicates, I now own multiple scopes from Vortex ranging in price. I recently replaced my spotting scope with a Vortex and have absolutely no regrets!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coyote Slayer Purchased this a few months back for a budget AR-15 coyote hunting build. Its fantastic!! I ordered the V-Brite version and couldn't be happier with the quality of this optic. The glass is clear and the adjustments are fast and easy. The V-brite reticle gives you all the precision you would expect from a scope and the fast target acquisition you get from a red dot allowing you to get on target quickly and make precision shots. This is the most recent product i have purchased from Vortex and definitely wont be my last!! Customer for life!!
