Vortex 6-24x50 Crossfire Rifle Scope

Does that work for ya?

Both Rusty and I have this scope and I'm happy. You'll need to ask him what his experience has been.

Its a ton of scope for the money.

Nice lookin' rig. It looks like something I could deal with. Been reading a lot of good stuff about them.

Check the Nitrex TR1 6-20x50 AO at Natchez Shooters Supplies for around $200 plus shipping. You missed out on its $50 Rebate, but at its present price, still a good buy on a scope that retailed for around $400. Nitrex and Weaver very similiar, being owned by same company and scopes made in Japan, using same optics and internals. I own a couple of the Nitrex TR2s and a gent I shoot with at range has this TR1 model. We are both extremely pleased with optics in our Nitrex scopes. Another high magnification scope is the Weaver 40/44 6.5-20x44 AO that can be bought for $175 at Natchez. Made in Philippines and while not one of the aspherical lens scopes recommended earlier, still decent scope for its price. Have one of the aspherical model 40/44s, a 3.8-12, and its glass is very very good. By the way, the Nitrex is discontinued, but its life time warranty is backed/handled by Weaver.

This is a good higher power scope for the $$. It's basically a Weaver Grand Slam and I've heard that the lifetime warranty results in the Grand Slam being its replacement scope if need be. I have one on my AR-10 and in my opinion it measures up to many $400-500 competitors...for $200.

If you want something more in the 3-9 power range, the Pentax Pioneer (rebranded Burris Fullfield?) that Best Buy is offering for under $100 seems like a pretty great deal. I've been thinking about adding one myself.

I have a couple Mueller Eraticator 8x25x50 scopes on my AR15 and Savage 12. They have been very good scopes,and have decent glass,and good tracking.
