Vortex’s Description: The Crossfire is a no-nonsense sight at a no-nonsense price for darn near any application, and when your AR-15, shotgun, or rimfire needs a simple point of aim and none of the frills, the Crossfire should be at the top of your list. The 2 MOA dot is quick to acquire in close quarters while remaining fine enough to promote pin-point accuracy at an extended range. With 50,000-hour battery life and night-vision compatibility at the lowest two settings, the Crossfire red dot will keep working in a variety of conditions. In addition to just plain looking awesome, the included skeletonized lower 1/3 co-witness mount provides a rock-solid and extremely lightweight platform.
Battery Life: Up to 50,000 hours on brightness setting 6.
Scalarworks’s Description: LEAP/01 State of the art Aimpoint Micro T-2 mounts.
Designed for shooters who want the lightest, strongest, and most compact quick-detach optic mount possible.
Today, the Leap mount features an even stronger base with a forward lean to provide more room for magnifiers and chamfered side pockets for improved thumbscrew access. The re-designed clamp has discreet hardened steel pins and a stopper to indicate when it’s sufficiently open to clear a Picatinny rail.
RKB Armory’s Opinion: Micro red dot sights, such as this Crossfire, have gotten so good in recent years that even the less expensive models are very high quality. Mounts are a different story. This Scalarworks mount is light, simple, and strong; which isn’t cheap. This is a really clever combination of affordability and quality. Also, this mount goes perfectly with a magnifier.
