The main tube features one inch in diameter as most scopes in that price range offer. It’s made from aircraft grade aluminum. It’s hard anodized in a matte black to prevent glare and light reflecting off of it.
- Rifle Scopes Center
The Vortex Crossfire II 4x12x44 is a standard 1″ tube crafted from aircraft grade aluminum in a single piece. The scope being crafted in one single piece helps improve accuracy, visual performance, durability, and keeps it waterproof.
- Gun Goals
The removable lenses are designed with sunshade that provides a great view while hunting. This makes it simple to see objects from anywhere with precision. After removing the lenses, you can clean them with a dust cloth that comes with the scope.
- Rifle Scope Center
This qualifies the Vortex Optics Crossfire II as a worthy riflescope for any hunter or shooter to have on their scope for the highest level of performance and reliability.

Size on some models is quite large and may make the unit feel bulky

The main problem this scope solves is the price of scopes. Not everyone can afford to spend $500 for a scope.
- Gun Goals
Its features have limited flaws and its performance has no demerit based on the consumer reports we analyzed.
- Rifle Scope Center
Picking a zoom that’s too high compromises quality

From The Manufacturer

Specifically designed for discriminating hunters and shooters, the Crossfire II series of riflescopes offer the highest levels of performance and reliability. With long eye relief, a fast-focus eyepiece, fully multi-coated lenses and resettable MOA turrets, there's no compromising on the Crossfire II. Clear, tough and bright. The hard anodized single-piece aircraft-grade aluminum tube is nitrogen purged and o-ring sealed for waterproof and fogproof performance. Dual use for Shooting Tactical/Hunting. Customized dot design helps eliminate guesswork on holdover and windage corrections. Good for hunting/shooting at varying ranges where estimating holdover is a concern. Second focal plane (SFP) reticles are located near the scope’s eyepiece behind the image erecting and magnifying lenses. This style of reticle does not visually change in size when you change the magnification. The advantage of an SFP reticle is that it always maintains the same appearance.
