Vortex offers a variety of different scopes in their line. One of the most common questions that we get asked is, “Which Vortex Scopes have a zero stop feature?” In this article, we will discuss four vortex scopes with a zero stop feature and what they are best used for.
What is Zero Stop on a Riflescope?
The Zero Stop system on a riflescope allows you to quickly return the scope back to zero without having to shoot again. The easiest way that we have found is with an electronic adjustment knob that can be clicked up or down until it reaches 0, which will then stop at “zero”.
Vortex Offers Four Different Zero Stop Configurations
There are four different Vortex scopes with a zero stop feature:
Vortex CRS Zero Stop
The CRS Zero Stop system is a new feature found on Vortex’s newest line of rifle scopes, the Crossfire II and Viper. The CRS can be set with an electronic adjustment knob that stops at “zero” when clicked up or down to make adjustments for distance.
Pros and Cons
This scope has very few cons but some people might not care for it because you have to adjust your eye relief in order to see if it is zeroed out. Other than this small con, there are no other downsides that we could find about this product! This seems like a great option overall!
Vortex RevStop Zero System
The Vortex RevStop was designed by hunters who wanted something more reliable than a mechanical stop on their riflescopes. The RevStop uses a spring loaded, ball bearing detent that locks into the scope tube and stops at “zero” every time you attach it to your rifle.
Pros and Cons
The Vortex Rev Stop is perfect for hunting because there are no moving parts or electronics involved in case something goes wrong with them- only two small springs which causes this product to be very durable – but not as accurate as some of other products on our list. This makes it great if you have been considering getting one for an archery hunt!
Vortex RZR Zero Stop
The Vortex Razor has always had a mechanical stop built into its design which allows shooters ability to quickly return zero without having to shoot again. There are many different configurations for the Vortex Razor and we will be discussing what they are here.
Pros and Cons
This product has very few cons but it does not come with a level built into its design, which can make sighting in more difficult than some of our other options on this list – but you might want to consider getting one for hunting because that is exactly why it was designed! It also doesn’t have an adjustable parallax which means your eye relief needs to stay consistent at all times when shooting. That means if you zoom out or move around while aiming then your accuracy may go down significantly.
Vortex L-Tec Zero Stop
The Vortex L-Tec riflescope offers shooters the ability to quickly return zero without having to shoot again. The Vortex L-Tec riflescope has a mechanical stop built into it that is adjusted by two screws on the left and right side of the scope body.
Pros and Cons
This product might be perfect for you because there are no moving parts or electronics involved! It also needs very little maintenance as well. However, this option does not come with an adjustable parallax which means your eye relief needs to stay consistent at all times when shooting – so if you zoom out too much then your accuracy will go down significantly. You may want to consider getting one for hunting only because this is what they designed it for!
What’s the “Best” Vortex Zero Stop System?
It really depends on what you want out of your rifle scope. If you are looking for the perfect hunting option then we would recommend the Vortex Razor because this is what it was designed for – but if you are trying to find a great option for an archery hunt, or just something that doesn’t need much maintenance and has no moving parts or electronics involved, then we would say go with the Vortex L-Tec!
All in all, there are four different options from which shooters can choose when considering zero stop technology on their riflescopes: The CRS Zero Stop system found on Crossfire II and Viper models; RevStop found on Scout scopes as well as other products like Omega rangefinder; RZR Zero Stop available across many different models of optics; and L-Tec found on some Viper, Diamondback HP riflescopes. It is important to note that there are pros and cons for all four options so it’s just a matter of finding the best option for you!
