Our most affordable red dot proves that you can still get big performance without the big price tag. When your AR-15, shotgun or rimfire just needs a simple point of aim and none of the frills, the Crossfire should be at the top of your list. The 2 MOA dot is quick to acquire in close-quarters scenarios, while remaining fine enough to promote pin-point accuracy at extended range. In addition to looking awesome, the included skeletonized lower 1/3 co-witness mount provides a rock-solid and extremely lightweight platform for your red dot. The Crossfire is a no-nonsense sight at a no-nonsense price for darn near any application.

Battery Life: Up to 7,000 hours on brightness setting 5.

Fully Multi-Coated Increase light transmission with multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces.
Brightness Settings 11 Levels
Unlimited Eye Relief Non-critical eye relief for rapid target acquisition
Parallax Free All red dot and holographic sights will exhibit some small amount of parallax. Matching current industry practice, this small amount would be considered "parallax free" and will make a negligible difference in performance.


Waterproof O-ring seals prevent moisture, dust and debris from penetrating the binocular for reliable performance in all environments.
Hard Anodized Finish Highly durable hard-coat anodization provides a low-glare matte surface and helps camouflage the shooter's position.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Crossfire red dot is almost perfect purchased the crossfire red dot about 2 months ago, i own 3 of the sparc ar red dots really like them .. decided to try the new crossfire works great looks great very easy to mount my only negative is on the dial it only turns one way so if you want to go to the 11 intensity you have to turn the dial all the way around I wish the dial would turn both ways so if you wanted a low intensity red dot you can dial that quick and if you wanted a high intensity dot turn it backwards and done quick … wish you would make an update to your new crossfire with the dial and make it turn both ways then it would be a 5 star RED DOT

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Issue with the Crossfire I’m a big Vortex fan and have mandy different optics from Vortex that I never had an issue with. I really hate to leave less than 5 star review on a product of theirs but i feel this one does deserve less than 5. I purchased my Crossfire from a Gander Outdoors a few weeks ago to put on my Kriss vector. When trying to turn the knob for the red dot. The entire knob came off without any problem. I know this didnt come out too long ago so it Looks like they just had a poor design of the knob. I understand this is one of their cheaper optics and probably shouldnt expect a absolute top notch optic. But hopefully they can correct this issue. I will be returning it to see how the VIP warranty is. Im probably going to get the Razor AMG UH-1 to replace this one on my vector.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smaller, Tougher, Sleaker, Stronger! Having used the Sparc II for almost 2 years, and loving it, this new red dot had all of the improvements you could want!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced my Eotech I was running a holo sight on my SBR 300 BLK and I swapped it for the smaller optic. *Note this is not because of all the nonsense with a certain company this was just because its a pain to have to remember the AA batteries die so fast. Love my holo sight but this is much more practical.* Honestly this is a less expensive version of a much higher priced red dot from and unnamed optics manufacturer. My only complaint for this optic is that you can only turn it on and off in one direction but other than that fantastic, sleek optic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LIGHTWEIGHT WINNER! This optic is equal in quality to other lightweight tube style red dots with a fraction of the value AND the AMAZING Vortex warranty! Not sure if they pre-sight these in for 16" ARs but it was right on point for a 25/300 zero out of the box on the skeleton mount. Incredibly impressed. Pros: - 2 Mounts: Lightweight skeleton mount and low profile mount -Easy controls -Battery snaps in snug -Mounts fit very tight and will not come loose. Cons: -The optic cover is just a bikini cover (compared to Strikefire flip up caps)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well built This is my first vortex product the crossfire red dot. I purchased it on sale and when it came in the mail I had to open immediately, took it out and tried to turn it on and nothing. Opened up the battery compartment and no battery so I looked in the box and it was nowhere. I mounted it to my SBR then it fell to the concrete when I was trying to get it where I wanted it and not a scratch. Big plus for that. The only two gripes are it didn’t come with the battery and was bumed there was no vortex sticker. Would have gave it a 5 star but haven’t used it and no battery. Thanks vortex for a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect "budget" red dot If you're looking for a red dot sight that won't break the bank but also won't break the second you take it out, this is it. For the price, the quality and the warranty you get can't be beat in my opinion. It's solid yet lightweight. The mount it comes with is simple and effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatness found I've run many a red dot in my life. Sometimes cost is and isn't a factor. I turned my sights to Vortex. I honed in my shot placement to the Crossfire. She sits atop my 10.5 AR pistol. The accuracy is unmatched and lethal. Quality of build is key here. I have subjected her to countless long days at the range only to end up being completely satisfied. I avidly reccomend her and her family to all. Seriously, I will never buy any other brand. I'm running several Vortex optics and I will never change. I wish i would have had Vortex on my deployment, might have had a better outcome. Cheers!
