SPARC® II Red Dot

Get on target fast with the SPARC® II. Ultra-compact and lightweight, the SPARC II (Speed Point Aiming for Rapid Combat) is equally at home mounted on an AR-15 or shotgun. Digital rear facing controls for powering on/off and adjusting the 2 MOA daylight bright red dot brightness at ten intensity levels—automatically returning to the last dot intensity used when powered up. Rugged single-piece body machined from aircraft grade aluminum is o-ring sealed for waterproof and fogproof performance. The VMX-3T Magnifier is not recommended for use with the SPARC II.

Note
The versatile multi-height mount system accommodates most firearms including AR-15s needing absolute or lower 1/3 co-witness heights, and mounts on standard Weaver or Picatinny bases (not included). A modular three-piece base offers four separate mounting heights for user- and weapon-specific customization: 18.0 mm (.709 inches), 21 mm (.823 inches), 37 mm (1.457 inches), 40 mm (1.575 inches).

Fully Multi-Coated Multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces increase light transmission.
Bright Red Dot Display is highly visible in daylight.
Brightness Settings 10 Levels
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 SPARC II’s performance.

Waterproof O-ring seals prevent moisture, dust and debris from penetrating for reliable performance in all environments.
Fogproof Nitrogen gas purging delivers fogproof, waterproof performance.
Shockproof Rugged construction withstands recoil and impact.
Hard Anodized Finish Highly durable low-glare matte finish.
Operating Temperature Rated from -4 degrees to +158 degrees Fahrenheit.

Convenience Features

Multi-Height Mount System Includes a high mount, low mount, and a spacer that can be combined to provide various mounting heights: lower 1/3 co-witness (40 mm), absolute co-witness (37 mm), 21 mm, and 18 mm.
Unlimited Eye Relief Non-critical eye relief for rapid target acquisition.
Adjustable Dot Intensity Provides ten variable illumination settings—the lowest two settings are night-vision compatible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Frist red dot This was my frist red dot I was looking for months priced from 70 dollars to 400, I chose vorext I am sure glad I did. My wife threw alway my box it still had mounts in it. I emailed vortex see what going cost me to replace them, they said we got you covered and I ask how much shipping was they said nothing in about a week I had my mounts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding "Bang For Your Buck" Optic As an everyday man who constantly strives to find a balance between quality and price point, the SPARC II was a huge win on both points...it just plain delivers! I have mine mounted on my S&W M&P15T and I can't say enough about this optic. Quality build, simple controls, good battery life, water/fog proof, crisp bright dot, quick zero that holds, multiple mounting options included, and not to mention the Vortex VIP Warranty...all at a fraction of the price of some other well known brands...and trust me, being in the military, I have used them all, and the SPARC II is easily on par with them. If you are looking for a quality red dot at a reasonable price...look no further!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An inexpensive alternative to the aim****t I'll admit, I'm a Vortex junkie. I've several PST's and a Crossfire II 1-4 so I'd tried the Strikefire and wasn't impressed, sold it. I just built an AR with LWCI upper and decided to give the SPARC II a try. I took the rifle (and sight) to the range yesterday and got her sighted in in no time. Was consistently hitting the steel plate at 100 yards with every shot. As luck would have it, another member was there sighting in his new AR with the expensive brand aim****t on it. He couldn't get it zero'd (not sure if it was rifle, sight or shooter) but it was a Colt AR. I'm happy saved ~0 compared to his and mine zero'd.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended I bought the Sparc || about 8 months ago and I absolutely love it. I have it mounted on a AR10 which I use for pig hunting and let me tell you this thing gets beat up and abused. I have never had to re sight it in which is amazing. I know y'all probably think I'm crazy, but this takes the abuse way better than my EOTech. I'm actually thinking about getting rid of it and buying another Sparc ||. This is a great product and I recommend this product for everyone! And no I was not paid to write this review this is just a very good product. Thank you Vortex for an amazing product at a affordable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for anything! I first bought the gen1 spac a few years ago for a flat top AR and could not be happier with it, ive looked at aimpoints, and yes they are nice but not 0 nice. I purchased a second sparc (gen2) for another AR because i loved the first one soo much! They are clear and bright! Battery life is awsome, they are easy to zero and boy are they tough! My dad wanted a red dot for his .44mag marlin levergun because hes getting close to 70 and buckhorn sights just arent cutting it for him, ill bet you all can guess whats on top of his marlin. Another sparc! Great product, great warranty! Next on my list is a Viper PST 1-4!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I had been trying to find a midrange priced red dot and had narrowed it down to a holosun and a sparc 2. After a little more thought I went with the sparc 2 and man is it great! I mounted it and paced off 50 yards to group it. I took 3 shots, walked up and checked the target and it was 1 inch low! A few clicks and had a cloverleaf bulls-eye, I am so happy I bought this, and Vortex will be my go to co. from here on out for more. I already ordered and received the extra battery holder and it is perfect, I couldn't be happier with it. I've already had about 250 rounds through it, zero problems. Thanks Vortex!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I bought it I was skeptical when I set out to purchase my first red dot. I used an Aimpoint the whole time I was in the Army. And honestly, I was shopping on price alone. I'm actually glad I did. The SPARC II was more than I expected. I really enjoyed the low rise mount. It was clearer than the Aimpoint and is more durable. I use it for hunting hogs and target shooting. It's permanently mounted to my Daniel Defense m4v7. I won't trade it (and I've been made some generous offers) for anything. Battery life is phenomenal. All in all, I'm glad I decided to shop on price. I've never been disappointed with my SPARC II.

Hi there! If I store the optic for a few months and remove the battery will it reset where I have sighted the red dot in?

Asked by: Tayls
No, the turret adjustments are mechanical and do not require a battery to hold their position.

Will the Spark 11 work on a .50 caliber CVA muzzleloader?

Asked by: Soulman
Yes, the Sparc II will work very well on your muzzleloader.

The description for the SPARC II states it is good for a shotgun where the other red dot sights do not. Is there any reason the SPARC II is better for a shotgun than the others?

Asked by: Peter
The Sparc II works great on a shotgun, as would our Strikefire II. The Sparc II comes included with the ability to be mounted at the height a shotgun would require while the Strikefire II would need a different mount.

SPARC II on my M1A, Arms#18 mount? Is that weird? What recommendation if any for the riser? I considered the Strikefire II, but i'm hesitant with the dot being 4 MOA. 

Asked by: Jimbo
With your setup, you will want to remove the riser and mount the Sparc II low.

Is the Sparc 2 an "auto on" red dot? I want to use this on my home protection rifle and the last thing I want is to have to fumble around with controls in an emergency situation. Thanks!

Asked by: pacman59
Our red dots do not have an auto on function, you would need to press the up button on the Sparc II in order to turn the red dot on.
