Vortex Optics Crossfire Red Dot Sight
Crossfire Red Dot (CF-RD1)
For close-in work and general shooting, it’s tough to beat a quality Red Dot Sight. The super-light, ultracompact, insanely-fast-on-target, incredibly durable, Crossfire Red Dot is exactly that. The daylight-bright, 2-MOA dot, is easy to acquire and promotes rapid engagement of targets, yet is fine enough to more precisely engage targets at distance. 11 intensity levels of brightness let shooters cater the dot intensity to the situation at hand. Skeletonized mount offers two height options (Low and Lower 1/3 Co-Witness) – lending its functionality to rifles, shotguns, and pistols.
2 MOA Dot Reticle
The daylight bright red dot is easy to see and paints targets regardless of lighting conditions or background.
The key thing to remember when shooting with the Crossfire red dot is to keep both of your eyes open! Shooting with both eyes open allows you to take full advantage of your peripheral vision to get on target very quickly. Eye placement is not critical. As long as you can see the dot, you’ll hit your target!
Windage and Elevation Adjustments
The Crossfire Red Dot incorporates elevation and windage dials with audible clicks. Each small click will move the point-of-impact one Minute of Angle. 1 MOA will closely correspond to one inch at 100 yards, 1/2 inch at 50 yards, 1/4 inch at 25 yards, etc.
Remove the turret cap and use the raised bar on the cover or a coin to turn the adjustment dial. Move the dials in the direction you wish the bullet’s point-of-impact to change. Turning the elevation turret counter-clockwise will raise the elevation. Turning the windage turret clockwise will move the point of impact to the left.
Mounting the Crossfire Red Dot
The Crossfire Red Dot can be mounted on a variety of platforms using the high mount or low mount. To get the best results from your Crossfire Red Dot, proper mounting is essential and, although not difficult, the correct steps must be followed. Your firearm will need to be equipped with a Picatinny or Weaver style rail/base.
1. Attach the unit to the rail/base with the illumination dial positioned on the right side.
2. Make sure the mount is solidly seated in the base groove. In order to prevent recoil injury, position the Crossfire so you have at least four inches of eye relief.
3. Be sure the base clamp is hooked around the outside of the rail/base.
4. Press the Crossfire downward and forward toward the muzzle. Then, firmly tighten the base clamp bolt using the hex wrench.
