Venom® Red Dot — 6 MOA Dot

Make your AR, pistol, or shotgun even more poisonous with the Venom Red Dot sight. A 6 MOA dot promotes rapid target acquisition, while providing a precise point of aim—getting shots down range and on target fast.

The durable, machined aluminum housing ensures the unit will stand up to whatever you throw at it. High-quality, fully multi-coated lens offers a clean, wide field of view. Our top-load system makes changing the CR 1632 battery a snap and alleviates the need to remove the sight when switching the power source. The power and dot intensity controls are conveniently located on the left side of the unit. Flush 1 MOA windage and elevation adjustments are super sleek and make sighting in a breeze.

Note
The Venom comes with a Picatinny mount—weighs 1.6 ounces with mount.

Optical Features

Fully Multi-Coated Multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces increase light transmission.
Premium Wide-Field Lens Exceptional edge-to-edge resolution.
Brightness Settings Choose between 10 levels of brightness in manual mode or switch to auto mode.
Parallax Free All red dot and holographic sights will exhibit some small amount of parallax. Matching current industry practice, this small amount would be considered “parallax free” and will make a negligible difference in the Venom’s performance.

Single-Piece Chassis Compact and lightweight.
Waterproof O-ring seals prevent moisture, dust and debris from penetrating for reliable performance in all environments.
Shockproof Rugged construction withstands recoil and impact.
Hard Anodized Finish Highly durable low-glare matte finish.
ArmorTek Ultra-hard, scratch-resistant coating protects exterior lenses from scratches, oil and dirt.

Convenience Features

Unlimited Eye Relief Non-critical eye relief for rapid target aquisition.
Battery Life 14-hour auto-shutdown feature maximizes battery life. Up to 150 hours of use at highest setting. Use at lower settings can allow up to 30,000 hours.

    Subtension detail for Venom 6 MOA red dot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best of both worlds! The new Venom 6MOA combines the compact nature and side adjustable controls of the Viper and easy access to the battery. It also comes with an auto brightness adjust mode. I highly recommend Vortex and their industry leading warranty!

    I have a Glock 19 Gen 4 MOS and have read I need to contact Vortex for special screws for mounting, but the person at the range said everything I needed to mount the optic was included. Please clarify and how do I get special screws if needed.

    Asked by: Yikes
    You will need to give us a call at 800-426-0048 ext 5 to get the proper mounting screws for your MOS as the stock screws do not fit the Glock plates.

    I have a question on the brightness features. If I set the Venom for auto brightness mode will it stay in auto mode even when I turn off the power (or it automatically powers down after 14 hrs) and then turn it back on?

    Asked by: zogger
    Yes, it will stay in auto brightness mode when it is turned back on.

    I have a smith and Wesson sw22victory. The venom red dot needs to go up 2 1/2 more inches too zero and it's out of adjustment to go up. I'm guessing that there is something I need to add or the red dot is defective.

    i have a Vortex Venom 3 MOA mounted on my Gen 4 Glock 19. i am having problems zeroing it. it shoots low and left. should I adjust it left and down to bring it to zero or right and up to bring it to zero?

    Asked by: Bndaidbob
    When making your adjustments you are adjusting the point of impact. So if you are hitting low and left you need to adjust the optic up and right.

    What is the average battery life range of this product?

    Asked by: Apache7171
    The battery life is 150 hours at highest brightness setting and up to 30,000 hours on the lowest setting. Under normal use you should see around 1,000 hours on a battery.
