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).

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 Great Performer..! I recently took a Counter Terrorism rifle course where we could only use red dot optics. Knowing that Vortex makes solid products, I chose to purchase and use the Sparc II on my rifle. Once I got to the course I saw many optics that people paid much much more for, and even heard a few comments about my choice of optic, although one of our instructors also had a Vortex on his rifle. The day was full of different types of drills at various distances out to roughly 100 yards. The training lasted about nine hours and was fantastic. When finished my rifle and optic were very dirty and dusty. The Sparc II performed flawlessly and held a perfect zero the entire time. I love my Vortex..!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SPARC II Red Dot I enjoy this Vortex red dot on my Ruger 10/22 w/ a Blackhawk chassis and Green Mountain Heavy Barrel. It provides quick acquisition and follow-up shots - enabling me to hit what and where I aim. I was able to zero quickly and w/ no issues. The battery life has been excellent. The on-off/dimmer buttons are located so they are easily manipulated and they work well. I like the attached caps for elevation and windage, as It keeps me from losing them in the field. I also like the flip caps, helps to protect the red dot when hiking or moving through brush and dog hair thickets. Thanks Vortex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aimpoints' chief competitor! Step aside aim point the new standard in red dot sights is here! The sparc 2 coupled with vortex's unbeatable warranty and customer service is the new king of the red dot world. Why pay 600 dollars for a name? When you can pay a fraction of that and still receive that indestructible quality you desire. Toss this bad boy on a battle rifle or even better yet your M1A scout squad and begin to absolutely SLAY Feral hogs like it's your job! Fast target acquisition with both eyes open shooting makes em drop like flies! Stop messing around, stop looking at aimpoint and primary arms STOP looking at vortex "competitors" because lets be honest there isn't any competition anymore. Vortex reigns supreme with the SPARC 2!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great red dot, affordable and high quality I could write a long explanation of why I decided to go with the Sparc ii, but at the end of the day it was the tourture test done by RecoilWeb on the Sparc ii that sold me. Google the dot that wouldnt die to see what this affordable optic withstood. Now that I've gotten to use this optic I'm more than impressed with what I got for the cost. It's maintained it's zero for a little over a year now, and I verify my zero almost every time I shoot. The glass is clear, the dot is crisp, and the adjustment dials are solid. Havung two mount height options is also a nice feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Optic for a 10/22 I use this red dot sight on a 10/22. Battery life is great. I take it out 4 or 5 times a month to shoot at the range. I've had it for over a year and yet to change the battery. 2 MOA dot is perfect for a 10/22 plinker. It holds zero and the controls are easy to use. There are a lot of red dot sights that are as good as the SPARC II. It's a crowded field. What puts Vortex over the top is their warranty. Vortex's warranty is the best in the business. How many things can you buy that the manufacturer will replace after your dog chewed it apart into a million pieces?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice short range red dot I like buying vortex products to test them out and see for myself the quality that comes with a decent price. This was one of four products that I have bought from vortex with the other three products being 2 scopes and binoculars. I bought the SPARC 2 red dot within the last year and used it for coyote hunting. I wanted to try a red dot on my setup for situations where the coyotes were either close to me or on the run and it worked great for both situations. On one of my hunts with my buddy, the coyote was running away perpendicular from our location nearly 200 yards away and I hit it by putting a nice lead on him. Sighting in was pretty easy and you could easily get 1 inch groups with this red dot at 100 yards if you are a good shot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product! I bought this site for my AR and was very pleased with it. I liked the fact that it was very easy to co witness with the attached riser to my factory AR and magpul sights. Solidly built with good functionality. Small enough to be non obtrusive but with a large enough sight picture. I even used it a little without the red dot or rear sight and it works well as a CQB ghost ring sight. I also attached it to a 22 for kicks without the riser and it functions there very well. Overall for the money I think this is a great value in a red dot. I do have one complaint and maybe more of a suggestion but the wires holding the caps on were a little tight and somewhat difficult to work with so could use a little engineering. Other than that it's great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice compact red dot I purchased this red dot about 6 months ago. It works well in all lighting situations. I thing that takes getting used to is in the bottom right hand corner as you look through the optic, there is a small hump where the red dot is projected from. Its a small hump and really doesn't obstruct your view but when you are trying to acquire a target quickly, and bring the red dot into view, the hump catches your eye for a split second. Now of course that's just my opinion and how it works for me. Overall I do like the product and it works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will be buying more of these guys. I bought this for my AR while I was out of town. I put it on my Ruger Mark lll .22 hunter just to do it and went out to sight it. But it was already zeroed. Never have I had to adjust the sights. And it's been on for several months now. I love this scope. I guess I'm going to have to buy another one cause I ain't taken it off the Ruger. Still on. I've shot several varmints so far including a Young Yodiethe other night. With the adjustable brightness of the red dot you can see your target clearly at night. I'm Vortex for life

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, preformed as advertised!! I purchased this product after receiving my new Sig MPX from my wife for Christmas. After several days of searching red dots on the web and visiting several sporting goods stores, I finally settled on the SPARC II. After talking to the salesman he convinced me that Vortex was the way to go after mentioning your Warranty program. I don't believe that I will ever need to use the warranty, but its nice to know that in this day and age that a company will stand behind its product. I'm buying all Vortex products from now on...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome red dot. If I had more rifles I'd buy multiple. This red dot is awesome. Very easy to install. Love the fact that it comes with the shim plate to give it a 1/3 co-witness if desired. I did not use the plate but it is a great option! The dot has 10 settings of brightness, so you will definitely be able to find the right one for any situation. Zeroing it in was a breeze. Few simple adjustments and I was hitting one on top of the other at 50 and 100 yards. Again, awesome red dot. I would recommend this red dot to everyone. Functionality and price point are outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for the money I have two SPARC 11 red dots. One is on a pistol and the other on an AR15. The shape crispness of the dot is superior to any red dot I have used regardless of price. Ease of use, no recoil issues, different height settings, even an extra battery makes it a tremendous value for the money. I am a member of a gun club with 1400 members and it hardly ever fails that someone comes up and says,"I see you have the Vortex SPARC. I have one also (as well as other Vortex products mentioned). What a great product for the money!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent buy There's a common saying on the gun community "you get what you pay for." During my military career, I've been exposed to multiple high end red dot platforms and this red dot can hang with the best of them. You get a lot more then what you pay for. I've put this sight through the ringer while shooting and the zero never moves. I'm highly surprised the military hasn't moved to vortex for their trusted sight. This is a great buy, and so much so that I bought my wife one for for her AR as well. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outstanding Value in a Red Dot Sight I liked this sight so well on my AR, I've bought more than one. As a firearms instructor, I look for equipment that is rugged, reliable, and simple to use. The off/on on the SPARC II is quick and easy, the adjustment is simple and reliable. It took me no more than 20 minutes to mount it and have it sighted in on the range. It's reasonably rugged and doesn't have rough edges to catch on clothing. I have recommended it to several other shooters who wanted a good red dot at a reasonable price.
Date published: 2017-06-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Red Dot It's a good lightweight red dot sight. I Like the small 2 moa dot opposed to the 4 moa dot found on the strikefire. My only complaint is both my windage and elevation turrets show adjustment for up and down. The windage adjustment indicator show up but it does still control bullet impact left or right as it should. You just have to remember which way to turn it to get the desired effect. Contacted Vortex they said if it was an issue to send it back but honestly it's not worth the trouble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great optic. Very versatile I use this optic on my AR. The included mounting blocks make it easy to adjust to a variety of heights, making co-witness adjustments easy. I really like how the elevation and windage knobs have a great tactile click with each turn and that the caps are secured with small cables. My favorite feature and the reason I bought this optic is the incredible warranty that Vortex includes with all their products. Peace of mind in an affordable, reliable, and quality piece of equipment

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shopped around and found a winner! Purchased the SPARC II to put atop my brand new AR. I shopped around the other brands, read reviews, watched videos, and all those things we do before spending our hard earned money. I had never heard of the SPARC II but found the many reviews and the price tag appealing. Upon using it, I can say I have not been disappointed in the least bit. It has exceeded my expectations. Looking forward to my next AR purchase and adding yet another Vortex product to the stable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best red dot for the money and beyond!!!! I bought this 2 years ago to go with an AR build. This optic is great. I zeroed it for 50 yards and haven't had to re zero it since. Also the battery life is good as well. I haven't changed the battery since I got it. I dont keep it running 24/7 but it hasn't lost its brightness and I keep the dot at full brightness the whole time Im at the range. I will never buy a different brand of optics since Vortex is the best for what I need it for and has a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accuracy and Safety I was calling coyotes in and as two came in, I had them in my view. Little did I know, another had come up from behind on my blind side. I heard a stick snap and looked over and he was 5 yards from me to my right (others were further out in front and to my left a bit). I was able to swing my shotgun around and because of my Sparc, have him in my sights in a split second and take him down. It was a heart pounding moment! My Sparc continues to serve me well!
Date published: 2017-06-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love this. I had played around with a few cheap red dot sights and saw potential. I wanted a good quality one without breaking the bank. Did a bunch of research, read the VIP warranty and decided I had to try this company out. I've had the Sparc II for just over a year and can't say a bad thing about it. Absolutely love it. So much so that a few months ago I ordered a Venom from them. And I am very pleased with that so far. I will always be a lifelong customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT!!!!! I have two of these on two rifles...a SOCOM 16 and a suppressed AR and they are MONEY!!!!! I cannot say enough about the durability of the product and the guys that run the company. Bought a scope as well from the store in Wisconsin and they way they treated me and my two three young kids that day when we were in the store...I'm a Vortex for life guy...period! great products that stand up to the abuse I put them through....AWESOME!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spot on I mostly use this little guy on my 15-22 for practice and squirrel hunting. Like my other Vortex items I've never had a problem with this optic from the way it holds up in mildly poor weather, to reliability over time just being stored and then used again months later. It's small and compact and convenient to keep handy for practice drills or when you need to try to get on target quickly for that squirrel that's about to disappear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex - Some if the Best Vortex has some of the best sights available for rifles. I prlirchsed this sight with some hesitation due to the lower price point. Trust me when I say I was more than impressed. The sight is worth more than the price I paid. Not only that, their military discount and customer service is impeccable. Not to mention the lifetime warranty. Thank you Vortex for appreciating my service to the our Country and for making amazing products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice compact red dot! I got this to use on my muzzleloader and it has been fantastic. I really like the small red dot. 2 MOA is small enough to make for precise aiming on targets or deer at longer ranges, yet it's plenty big to allow for quick target acquisition. The brightness can be adjusted down to give a really good sight picture in low light. Much better than a 1x scope for hunting, and a lot more compact as well. Great little sight.
Date published: 2017-06-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Red Dot Even Better Customer Support I purchased this for a Scorpion Carbine and it is the perfect optic for it, it has also spent some time on an AR. I picked this up directly from Vortex's showroom and had them install and bore sight it. I did a ton of research before the purchase and was impressed with everyone I talked to at Vortex. Travis specifically went over and above to help get my questions answered. Any optic from here on out will be a Vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't beat this red dot! I had a hard time deciding between running magnified or non-magnified optics for competition. I decided to go with the Vortex Sparc II and I wasn't disappointed. It has a sharp clean dot and clear sight picture. With it having a 2 MOA dot, targeting up close is fast and I have no trouble ringing steel at 300 yards. Not to mention it's backed by a solid warranty. I'd recommend it to anyone in the market for a red dot.
Date published: 2017-06-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best red dot for the price I have ran many other red sot and halo sights on my ar's, but I was directed to try out the Sparc II by a friend. I purchased one right before a two day cqc course in Oregon and thought that was a good opportunity to put it thru it's paces. After two day of beatings, being dropped and slammed around on the range, the optic held zero and survived a thrashing that other optics twice the price have failed me before.
Date published: 2017-06-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best red dot for the money You CANNOT purchase a better red dot on the market for this price. I'd put this up against an aim point any day of the week. The only difference between the two is where they're manufactured. And for the price difference and warranty, I can happily live with that'. Buy it. You won't be disappointed. I'm about to buy my next optic which will be a vortex 1-6x. Customer for life and recommend them to everyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not even 50 rounds and already a problem. I just bought this sight from amazon for about 0. After about 50 rounds fired, the buttons on the side of the optic were unresponsive. I tried replacing the battery but with no luck still didn't change illumination or turn off. I almost positive this is a rare defect because iv'e owned multiple scopes from vortex (ex: Strike eagle 1-6x24 and Diamondback 3-12x48) and all were with 100% satisfaction.

If it is not recommended to use the vmx-st magnifier with sparc 2 what magnifier do you recommend. I just purchased the sparc 2 and i wanted a magnifier to go with it next. I am disappointed that i can't use the vmx. So i am at your mersy on what to use. 

Asked by: bob a
The Sparc II is not recommended for use with a magnifier. Because of the design of the optic, when it is used with a magnifier the dot can be distorted. That being said, we have a lot of customers that do use them together and they work fine so it can be done.

I have the Sparc II and the mount keeps loosening up , not sure about using thread locker in case I want to QD. What size is the torx tool that came w/Sparc II ? And what is torque recommendation for bottom mount screw ?

Asked by: dmatt
The mount on the Sparc II is a T-10 torx, we recommend 15 inch pounds on the screw. If you do not want to use Loctite, you could try Vibratite to keep the screw from vibrating loose.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
