I want to scope a Savage 22 Magnum and was thinking of a Vortex Crossfire in 2 - 7
 
Does anyone have any experience with Vortex Crossfires. They seem like a good value at less than $100.
 
I have Leupold VX3, Ziess Conquests, Nikon Monarch and Weaver KV scopes and wonder how Vortex would compare so I can get an idea where to put the crossfire line on the quality scale.
 
I don't expect it to match the others but would like to get some idea what its like.
 
Thanks

...........Not too many, if any at all, Vortex Crossfire owners on this site. I too fall into that category.
 
In looking over the specs and the quality of the Crossfire, its a good deal for a $100 and shouldn`t be any problem sitting atop a 22 magnum. No recoil issues to deal with. I see no reason not to get one.
 
Like you state, it won`t compare to your other scopes listed above.

If you end up getting one...let us know what you think.  I've looked at them, but I have the same concern that ya'll do.  I would also say it would do fine on a .22 mag.

Thanks - EXCELLENT comparison on the above link! - After reading it maybe I'll spring for another $60 and get a Weaver KV - The smudge inside and sensitive eye position scares me!
