Strike Eagle® 1-6x24 Riflescope

Speed and versatility—that’s what 1x variable optics offer AR shooters who need to engage targets from point-blank out to extended ranges. And that’s exactly what you’re going to get with Vortex’s new Strike Eagle 1-6 x 24. Take into consideration what it costs to get into this optic, and you may find you can’t afford not to buy it.

Whether you’re burning through a 3-Gun Stage, logging some range time, or holding for hair on a coyote you’ve duped into thinking you’re lunch, the Strike Eagle is up to the task. High-quality, fully multi-coated lenses deliver a clear, crisp sight picture and optimal low-light performance. A true one-power on the low end of its 6x zoom range provides quick target acquisition in close quarters scenarios. Need to engage targets at distance? Crank it up to 6x and let it rip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope for a good price! I bought this for an AR and have really enjoyed it, when sighting it in I was amazed at how tight my groups are. The different levels of brightness are great and love the BDC concept. Works great paired with a green light for hunting coyotes/hogs at night. To top it off It comes with flip up sights and I received a vortex cap with my order. Great scope for the price and does everything I was wanting, beats buying a red dot and magnifier in my opinion because this will do so much more. This being my first Vortex I couldn't believe the clarity of the glass and it made me a believer. Looking to put other Vortex optics on some other rifles I own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully amazing scope I recently received this as a gift a few weeks ago. It's absolutely amazing! Crystal clear glass, comes with flip up covers for each end, and not too heavy. The Manu is short Sweet and straight to the point with how to tweak it. It has great eye relief. I've never had a good scope and always wondered how you use it with both eyes open. Well, this scope is one that allows you to do just that quite easily. Love the reticle too. You can see it during the day on the highest setting. Multiple fine settings for the lighting of the reticle. Overall you cannot go wrong with the strike eagle. Plus, can't beat a lifetime warranty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope! I bought this to put on a 16" 5.56 AR that I use for deer, coyotes, and fun shooting. Mounted it using a LaRue mount so that I could swap it out for a 3x9 if need be. I got rid of a red dot and think the Strike Eagle will end up doing what both the red dot and the 3x9 did except in one package. The scope works well enough in low light that I don't use the lighted function as much as I though I would. The lighted reticle works well on darker targets and should be very nice for hogs. I shot a couple of 1" groups at 100yds and then rang the 8" gong at 300yds until it got boring. The hold over lines work great for that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fanrastic optic priced lower than it should be! I bought the Strike Eagle about 3 months ago for 3 gun. Right away I was impressed with it. I was somewhat skeptical of what could be considered a "budget optic," but I had read enough reviews to think it was worth a shot. The scope is much more "solid" than other scopes in its price range. The sturdy metal construction of the scope and the positive clicks of the the elevation and wind age knobs aren't typical of other scopes in this class. The illuminated reticle took some getting used to, but after a few hundred rounds I was using it like a red dot up close and dialing it up for distance in no time. It's a great do-it-all optic offering up close speed and distance precision.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good entry level This is a great scope for the entry level. Glass is clear enough for use at the range, or even 3 gun competition. Zoom level has great texture allowing for easy grip, and is smooth enough to adjust with ease. Weight is not that much of an issue. The reticle is easy to read, and use. The con I have with the scope is the glass in certain lighting will have a brownish hue to it, and some distortion on the edge of a field of view at max power. Overall is great scope to get started. Pros: - Cost - Easy to read reticle - Weight - Illumination is good enough in low light and overcast days Cons: - Glass has a brown hue in certain lighting - Illumination washes out in bright day light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strike Eagle is a home run Wow, where to start. The Strike Eagle is an amazing do-it-all, short- to medium-range scope. I've had it on an AR and it's now sitting in low 30mm rings on a suppressed Ruger 10/22. Both platforms shine with this scope sitting on top. Construction is first-rate, as is the glass. The reticle is necessarily busy but it works, and the illumination settings are well designed. Depending on the platform you run this on, the weight may or may not come into play. At about 17oz it's not a featherweight, but it's not a lead brick either. I'm very, very pleased with the Strike Eagle. Very well made, very versatile and a purchase that I don't regret in the least.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super great scope. I got into 3 gun this year and started off with a 4x scope that let's say did not hold to up expectations. It starting shaking loose from the recoil and wouldn't hold zero. I noticed so many others using vortex and decided to upgrade about 2 months ago. I am very pleased with the clarity and how light weight it is. It holds dead zero for me at 200 yards and very easy to use. For the price you cannot beat this scope. You will have trouble seeing out past 400 but not a big issue for 3 gun competitions. I would love to be sponsored by vortex and they have a great customer service team with the lifetime warranty on their products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect AR platform scope I was a cop for 25 years, I was issued an M4 for 14 years, with a Leupold MK4 C/QT scope. After retirement, I was allowed to purchase the rifle without the scope. I chose the Strike Eagle as a replacement, and am totally satisfied. The optics are very clear, and I really like the ETCHED & ILLUMINATED reticle. The Vortex scope is superior to the Leupold in all aspects. For the price, I could not find a scope anywhere near the quality with similar features. My only critique is that the turret adjustment could be crisper, more positive. The turret knobs are good, but not perfect.

The reticle manual says to sight this scope in at 50 yards, but I have seen other "gun experts" mention sighting it in at 100 yards. (They are not official spokesmen for Vortex, to my knowledge.) What is the correct sighting-in distance? Thanks!

Asked by: Greg
There is nothing wrong with sighting in at 100 yards, the reason we recommend 50 yards is because it will coincide with a 200 yard zero (if you are zeroed at 50 yards it is very close to the same as a 200 yard zero). With that 50/200 yard zero, the reticle works out close to 300, 400, 500, and 600 yards on a standard 5.56 round.

Has anyone ran the Strike Eagle 1-6 on a MK17? If so any issues? Thanks M

Asked by: Mike
The MK 17 is known to be hard on optics and may cause issues with the Strike Eagle. We typically recommend our Razor HD Gen II 1-6x24 for the most durable option for that rifle. If you were to have issues with the Strike Eagle however, our VIP Warranty would take care of it for you.

Which lens covers are included with the Strike Eagle 1-6?

Asked by: bass_singer
The Strike Eagle 1-6x24 comes with flip caps that are only available on the Strike Eagles.
Answered by: Mike at Vortex Optics

I bought a DPMS Oracle. If I go with the Strike Eagle 1-6 and a cantilever mount, should I go with the two or three inch offset. Thanks!

Asked by: bass_singer
If you run your nose tight to the charging handle you will want the 3" offset, the 2" offset if you extend your stock.

Good day, I see where you said this scope can be mounted on a .308 platform. Do you zero it as you would a 5.56? Thank you!

Asked by: Harden Thick
You zero it as you would any other scope. However, seriously...the problem with any kind of Bullet Drop Compensator is that they don't actually work. Because of the multitude of loads you simply cannot utilize one with any positive results every time. Once you zero, say at 100 yards, you will need to experiment to see where it hits at farther or closer distances. I zero my 556 typically at 50 yards and it will be pretty close at 200.

Wil this work on my Winchester Model 70 30/06? Also will it fit into my existing scope mount ?

Asked by: 66ponyboy
Im sure you could- providing you use 30mm mounts. Although at 6 power it is more suitable for 200 yard ranges and closer- which makes this optic exceptional for ARs or rifles intended for medium/close range. The 1 to 6 choice of magnification is excellent for that, as is the new style of bullet drop compensate reticle and its illumination. Mine performs flawlessly..

Night vision capable?

Asked by: Mike
If you're looking for an optic that is capable of Infrared or Thermal imaging capable, you're in the wrong place. In addition, any optic that is at all capable of "night vision" is a minimum of ,000 and if you want something that is capable of sighting targets at any significant range you talking closer to ,000. The Strike Eagle was not designed to be used at night. It was however designed with an illuminated reticle to help with low-light shooting. For 0, this is one of the best and most valuable optics on the market!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top notch optic! Great on a bullpup. The Strike Eagle 1-6 lived on my TAVOR SAR bullpup rifle since September 2015. A year and a half and 3k+ rounds later, I can confidently report that it is truly an outstanding optic. The Strike Eagle survived a good bit of abuse through training in sand, snow, and rain and never had to be re-zeroed. I expected the optic to be reliable in close distances and have the capability to confidently reach 150yards+ without much pause between shots -- the strike eagle delivered! The clarity of glass and reticle is on par with some k+ scopes I've seen -- just tells you that great optics don't have to cost as much a mortgage. Happy to see Vortex nail yet another product !

It's mounted on my 7x64 stutzen rifle and it has impressed me. The quality of the glass, the illuminated recticle, the warranty versus the price. Haven't found a single negative yet. (Really unusual for me) I've promised to send some pictures to Bently so they'll be here soon but looks right on the rifle. I am so impressed by the Vortex brand that I've now gone out there and tried the new Razor HD gen II 4.5 - 27x56. I'm going to put a Razor on my long range tactical rifle.
