Vortex Optics enjoys a good holiday announcement. Last year the Wisconsin-based optics manufacture debuted its ‘Huey’ holographic sight. This December we are introduced to a a battery of new optics, including the Crossfire 2MOA red dot sight. At an MSRP of $219, Vortex is pricing the optic to sell quickly in 2018.
The Crossfire is night vision capable, has a battery life of 7000 hours on medium and 11 different brightness settings. The ~$200 pricetag includes a skeletonized rail mount, but the Crossfire will be compatible with some aftermarket mounts as well.
In addition to the new red dot optic, the Strike Eagle line of scopes gains two new models: a 3-18X and a 4-24X join the budget friendly lineup. Previously the Strike Eagle was only available in 1-4X or 1-6X versions.
There is no ETA with today’s announcement, but smart money would lean towards a 2018 SHOT Show release. TFB will bring you additional details as the become available. For now, today’s announcement along with other Vortex product releases, can be found below.
