    Vortex.

    I have herd very good things about the customer service dept. But the real question remains how is the quality of the glass ?.

    Their 6-24x is priced good just wondering about how clear its going to be .

    Their customer service is almost perfect.

    Now I believe you're talking about their Crossfire line of scopes which are the cheapest. They are pretty good for their price.

    The Viper scope line is better glass than the crossfires and thus more pricey. The Diamondback line is even better than that and even more costly.

    But unless you're competiting and can really tell the difference the Crossfire would be good enough for the average shooter.

    Ok after talking with the Vortex guys, it seems their Crossfire line is discontinued. They are replacing them with the Crossfire II line. Which at this time does NOT have a 6-24 scope in it's line. So if you find a normal Crossfire 6-24 then I suggest picking it up!

    I used to sell optics back when I worked in the fishing/hunting store. IMHO, Vortex is right up there with the Bushnell and Leupold lines.

    Yeah I sent a nasty little letter to Vortex about getting rid of the Crossfire line and not replacing them with the same size of scopes

    Had a Strikefire on my 858, I liked it a lot. Sold it with the gun.

    I just tonight put a Sparc on my AR15. Too soon to say for sure, but I don't think I like it was well. Will report back after I actually use it at the range.

    I installed a Sparc with the swing 3x magnifier on it earlier this year, we are both big fans of the design.

    I had the Strikefire on my Bushmaster. I had actually inquired about being the first person in Canada to have the vortex line. I think I still have some of the documents they sent me.

    Vortex Rangefinder

    I can't wait to get the new VORTEX Rangefinder 1000 - a beautiful little high quality rangefinder unit at about the price of a bushnell ! Look for it soon ! R
