CVLIFE Optics Hunting Rifle Scope With Red & Green Illuminated Crosshairs Review
It is actually pretty amazing how many features you get on the CvLife Optics Scope, but there are some disadvantages as well. Let’s start with some of the great things about the scope, because there are quite a few things to like about this one and the fact that it comes with free mounts and is priced very low are just a couple of them.
Advantages of the CVLIFE Optics Hunting Rifle Scope
First of all, this scope specifications list the magnification at 6-24X and the lens has an objective diameter of 50 millimeters. It has red and green illuminated crosshairs, with an AOE. It also comes with free mounts, which is remarkable considering how little this scope costs. The field of view is 28 feet at a hundred yards and it has an eighth of an inch click value at 100 yards. Both the red and green are illuminated.
The scope does a great job with the red and green illumination feature. The cross hairs are bright and can be seen clearly and it has parallax and elevation controls so that you don’t have to take the time to adjust those settings with tools. While it has fairly simply construction, the scope is sturdy and well-made. The color selection for the cross hairs is definitely one of the best features, because it can be seen over almost any backdrop. However, like any battery operated illuminated cross hairs, if the battery goes out during a competition or there is another power failure of some kind, you lose the scope completely.
Some of the Disadvantages of This Scope
While you can’t really complain too much about minor issues due to the price, there can sometimes be a problem when you start to move past the base magnification of 6X. At 6X the field of vision is very clear and sharp, but when you zoom in, most of the field of view becomes distorted. This is obviously a major problem if you were relying on the scope for any magnification beyond the base. It is still usable but the distortion makes it very difficult to see clearly.
Overall Recommendation: This is a terrific scope for the price, and even if you have some distortion when zooming, you still can’t beat it for features and illumination.
