Construction

The Vortex Crossfire II 4 – 12x44mm Riflescope construction is made of aircraft-grade aluminum for strength and rigidity and has a hard anodized matte finish to help camouflage the shooter’s location. The riflescope is made up of a single-piece tube so as to maximize alignment for improved accuracy and optimum visual performance. The construction is nitrogen purged and O-ring sealed to prevent moisture and dust from getting into the riflescope to provide dependable performance in any kind of environment. Nitrogen purging also helps to prevents internal fogging over a wide range of temperatures. The scope’s lenses are locked in place with machined locking rings to withstand recoil and impact.

Long eye relief

The long eye relief of 3.9-4.4″; F .O.V. is 24.7-8.4 ft. at 100 yds provides comfort to the user.

Fully coated lenses

Fully multi-coated lenses with anti-reflective coating provide remarkable light transmission with edge to edge lucidity.

Zero resettable 1/4 MOA capped turrets

The zero resettable 1/4 MOA capped turrets allow re-indexing of the turret to zero once you have sighted in the riflescope. Caps offer external protection for the turret.

Second Focal Plane Reticle

The second focal plane reticle maintains the same ideally-sized look to ensure that enumerated reticle subtensions used for approximating range, holdover and wind drift correction are precise at the highest magnification.

Fast-focus eyepiece

The fast-focus eyepiece provides quick and easy reticle focusing.
