    I just bought a Vortex

    Crossfire 1-4 for my C308. I bought it because it doesn't have a big objective bell like everything else. I figured the field of view would be awful but it seems to be a quality piece. Great warranty too. It almost seems purpose built for roller lock guns as there's plenty of room for the charging handle. Anyone else use a similar scope?

    I've got a Vortex Crossfire II 3-9 have had it for a few years now on a Colt LE6920. No issues and I've banged this gun around quite a bit. Loctite of course, on the fasteners helps keep it nice and snug.

    Good quality and I'd buy another Vortex product for sure.

    I am assuming you mean a 1-4X24. 24 objective is good enough for most normal 308 ranges providing you do not require a larger field of view. Own several Vortex no complaints .

    I have a vortex 1-4 power scope on one of my Daughter's AR15s. An almost perfect mag range for most using an AR, plus with practice you can use it on 1 power like a red dot.

    I did notice how clear the glass is on these and once you get it focused on the 1 power setting you sure can use it like a red dot. In that capacity I have to say it's as nice as my Wife's Aimpoint and less than half the price. I'm loving it so far. And it's single plane to boot.

    I have 3 of them on different rifles. For the price point, its one of the best scope offerings. Get yourself another one.

    I may have to look further into Vortex, I have a Colt 4X on my ar but doesn't have the eye relief that I would like. Something for me to think about.

    Are you talking about one of their scopes or redots sights ?
