My eyesight has been changing in the past few years and I’ve found that dot optics like the Aimpoint M68 or SiG Romeo require me to use prescription eyeglasses to keep everything in focus.
Optics Planet recently had this scope on sale ($150 delivered ) so I bought one, then a month later a second one.
This review is pretty good so I thought I’d share it
VORTEX CROSSFIRE II 1-4X24MM RIFLE SCOPE REVIEW
The Vortex Crossfire II 1- 4 x 24mm riflescope is the stuff grown-up folks need to feel like kids again. This offering of the Crossfire II is quick to use, acquires the target smoothly, small so that it will be at home damn near anywhere on any size long-gun. If you can’t tell already, I kind of like it.
OK, for a little fanboy action about Vortex, they have been making modern optics in Wisconsin since 2002, and before that, the owners had an optics shop, then decided to make their own from scratch. Vortex is very happy to have anyone stop by the sales floor lobby and look at all they have to offer, and you will need some time, it’s a long walk.
On their 50 and 100 yard indoor ranges, they offer police training to the departments in Wisconsin and Northern Illinois, and I am sure plenty of time has been spent looking through this optic by many of the officers training there.
OK, now onto some time spent in the desert, and breathing a bit of dust from a sudden wind storm that I have some feeble and colorful language to describe, with that I will keep that part of the day to myself.
Some Identifying Features
What style of a rifle will this scope work best on? The AR platform seems to be a perfect fit. The guide guns, heavy, large-caliber lever action guns that Alaskan guides carry as bear-repellent, would be a great fit as well. I have seen pictures of this scope on a crossbow, now that is something to think about. All caliber will benefit from this scope, with this Crossfire II offering magnification at 1x up to 4x power, I believe this scope on a world-class 22 Magnum bolt action would be a devastation to the squirrel world.
