Once it starts getting dark it's like any other cheap scope.Any of the cheap scopes are clear in good light.This scope is ok for the money, blurry and fuzzy on higher power.You could say it's the typical China stuff.I believe you can do a little better with the Centerpoint brand that includes flip-up scope covers and rings for under $100.00 if you just looking for a good value.

No blurry or fuzzy on mine at 24x. I do not expect it to be the worlds greatest scope in low light. I have other rifles with better scopes for that purpose. For punching paper or taking out Praire Dogs durring the day it will be more than adequate. Many posts on this board concerning Vortex C/S as well and how well they take care of the customer, that along with SWFA C/S makes this hard to pass up for $99.00.

Centerpoint customer service is also very good.If you want t save money buy the Centerpoint which I feel is a better value.I would not be surprised if both both scopes are made in the same factory.

We bought three of the Vortex from SWFA and are very pleased. Very clear and solid built. In lowlight, they are best kept under 16x or so.They are advertised as being 70% discounted.  What rifle are you scoping?

Randall... I looked up the web site and they didn't look like bad scopes.  I then watched a video with a guy shooting an air rifle that was pretty interesting, he had a higher power centerpoint on it and was cranking the nobs like crazy and it came back to his zero every time. I'm glad that you are happy with yours.  So anywho, I got my Vortex 6-24x50 crossfire last night and am pleased with the quality of this $99. special.  I was hoping to shoot it today, but it never panned out, started loading some new bullets for the 223 and couldn't bring myself to stop. Only loaded 100 rounds, but I have never loaded for the 233 before.  Loaded enough for my rifle and my buddy's with three loads of WIN 748 and three loads with the Varget, can't wait to sight in and then see if any of these loads get me close to where I need to be, oh ya I'm trying out Sierra's 69 BTHP MatchKing.     Thunbs Up
