Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Only Red Dot I Will Buy I bought my Strikefire 2 nearly a year ago to use on my AR as a defense setup. It was easy to zero and has very precise adjustments. Powering on is easy and instant. The brightness settings are simple to adjust and very helpful to quickly dim the dot in low light. Both red and green are very bright. The glass is clear and easy to protect thanks to the quality flip up lens covers that are included. I keep my AR fixed in my trunk next to a plate carrier and I have no doubt that this sight will work when I need it to. All this combined with the warranty vortex offers and the price makes me wonder why anyone would choose another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product with a great price I bought this for my wife's rifle. Fantastic red/green dot. I love how it comes with a magnifier, easy to install and remove. My only negative is it is quite tough to get the optic caps to close. I understand it's to keep moisture and debris out but I feel I'm going to lose zero for how much effort it takes to close them. Not sure if it's a defect or if they are supposed to be that tough. Overall, fantastic product, you could easily spend triple the price, but why would you when this product performs as well if not better than the higher priced brands. Along with the VIP warrenty, Vortex products are very hard to beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A high quality red dot I put the Strikefire on one of my ARs. It was very simple to install. I chose the red/green version just to have a different light if needed. Vortex suggest using a 50 yard line to set zero, but I used a 100 yard zero. The first 5 shots were outside the red. After dialing it in, the next 45 shots were in the red.I would've shot more, but ran out of time. My eyes did pick up the green dot much better than the red dot. For the price and quality of what the Strikefire is, I'm not sure if there is a better red dot out there. I will continue buying Vortex products

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first REAL red dot I have purchased 3 cheap ( 25 dollars or under) red dots from the internet. The old saying is true. You get what you pay for. What was I thinking? This thing could save my life or someone's else's and I went cheap on the sight system. I did a lot of research and decided to purchase a Strikefire II. Very happy with my purchase. A world of difference between the cheapo red dots and my quality Vortex red dot. It has the features I wanted, easy to mount and east to use. I would recommend this red dot and will buy from Vortex again in the future. The best feature could be Vortexes warranty. If you don't know about the warranty you need to research it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the money I bought this optic about 2 years ago. The first thing I noticed was how high it mounts above the rail. When bring the rifle to firing position, cheek against the stock line of sight alignment is spot on. From looking at it mounted on the rifle it does look to be sitting high but it doesn’t interfere with performance. Since then I have but over 1000 rounds through my rifle and the sight has stayed true since. Of course I remove it to clean and once reinstalled recalibrate the sight but it has remained reliable. Still haven’t changed to battery. Optics remains bright and clean with no distortion to clarity. Thank you Vortex for putting out another great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strikefire II Pros - Everything!!!! This red dot does exactly what it is suppose to do. Bottom line. The glass clarity is great. The dot is a dot.....not some obscure figure. Built like a tank. Cons - The only real con, which really isnt a con is the mount. The mount is as solid as it gets but.....I wish it came with or the option for a QD mount. I did end up buying the Burris QD mount for it. And to my surprise, its the same exact mount. Except it is machined for the QD. Now I see why there was never a QD kit to convert.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my AR build! I run this red dot on my Wilson Combat AR setup, and it's the prefect optic! Coupled with my Vortex 3x magnifier, I can quickly switch between close and mid-range targets whether I'm putting rounds on paper at the range or small-game hunting. The Strike Fire II is exceedingly well-built, with a ruggedness that has served it and me well while dragging my rifle through the scrub and brush, and it's good looks and design means it cleans up well for plenty of compliments after a good cleaning. Would not only recommend to anyone I know, but will be buying another to go on my new SBR when my tax stamp comes in!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good beginner optic It is a decent beginner/ entry level red dot. That being said it is still a good red dot for the price but would advise to save for the Spitfire prism for a smaller MOA dot thus allowing the shooter to be more accurate in their shots. The length of the optic body is a bit large for being a simple red dot with zero internal magnification. That being said, I did receive one with a thread on 2x magnifier which is nice but is a little bit tedious to have to screw on and un-screw to get off in order to switch between magnifications. Personally it was a nice touch to make it an option, but I would just stick with the 3x magnifier that flips to the side versus messing with the thread on 2x.

I just purchased the strikefire 2 and I noticed that in the center of the lens it looks like a small dot smear mark. I don’t seem to notice it when the red dot is turned on, but when turned off it’s back. Please help me on this question. Thank you

Just acquired a Ruger PC Carbine, Would like to install the Strikefire II, with future addition of the 3x multiplier. Confused as to which mounts needed to attain absolute for each optic. Any recomendations

Asked by: hsill
With your rifle you will not be able to co-witness the iron sights because they are too low to use through the optic. The magnifier mount will also place it at a height that may make it difficult to use on your rifle. Give us a call at 800-426-0048 ext 5 to discuss further.

Dear Sirs, I was intending to buy Sparc II 1x22 for my Polish Beryl Rifle 5.56 mm AK however been informed by your Polish distributor that they are no longer available. Will you recommend (as a replacement) a StrikeFire II Red Green or other? Brgds

Asked by: Slawomir
I would recommend our Crossfire red dot as a good replacement for the Sparc II.

Can you recommend a quick detachable, non cantaliver mount to use with this optic on a Marlin 9mm Carbine and possibly a Ruger PC Carbine in the future?

Asked by: Curt63
Any 30 mm quick detach ring would work for your setup.

I have a Beretta CX4 Storm 9mm with a Vortex StrikeFire II. I want to co-witness with my sights using a single QD ring. What height ring would I need?

Asked by: tm111music
The lowest height Tactical 30 mm ring we offer for the Strikefire II will place the center of the optic at 21 mm off the top of the rail, if your iron sights are that height you would get an absolute co-witness.

Considering the strikefire II can withstand magnum caliber handguns, I assume it is safe to run on an AR-10(.308)?

Asked by: Boggin777
Yes, it would work great on an AR 10.

Will StrikeFire II red dot 1/3 co-witness with Gail Ace 5.56? If so, what mount required?

Asked by: srsilb
The lowest height ring we offer for the Strikefire II will place the center of the optic at 21 mm off the top of the rail, if your iron sights are close to that height you will be able to use them through the optic.
