Strikefire II Red Dot

When situations demand split-second target acquisition and maximum field of view, mount up the StrikeFire II and shoot—both eyes open. Feature-rich, versatile and reliable, the StrikeFire II is a great choice for shooters who want a quality red dot sight, but don’t want to break the bank. Features sleek rear-facing controls for power on/off and easy adjustment of ten dot intensity levels—lowest two settings are night-vision compatible. Automatically returns to the last dot intensity used when powered up. The 30mm aluminum alloy chassis provides extra-high recoil rating and is waterproof and fogproof. Strike fast!

Note
The lower 1/3 co-witness cantilever mount model is ideal for AR platforms, positioning the optic bore center 40 mm above the base surface.

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 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 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 Love it After being pleased with my own Strikefire II red dot on my M4 clone, i chose to equip my organization's raffle AR with one. The height is perfect. Its easy to pick up your target. The multiple illumination levels are great. Easy to set up and easy to use. And quite frankly, it reminds me of what i carried in the Army. Vortex is a great supporter of veterans and we thank them for that. Jon Skubis is a great guy to work with and understands customer service as it should be. Keep up the great work guys!

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!

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?

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.

Curious if the "Zero" (set dot location) is lost when the battery dies or is replaced on the Strikefire II? Or can I trust that the dot will be in the same place upon replacing the battery?

Asked by: Cory
The adjustments on your red dot are mechanical and do not require a battery so you should not lose your zero if the battery dies.

I mounted the Strikefire II on a Texas Weapons System picatinny rail on an AK47. Where can I find a low profile rear sight to mount behind the Strikefire II and see through the hole in the cantilever mount to the existing front iron sight?

Asked by: Mike
For use on your rifle, you will want the low height Tactical Ring to be able to use the red dot and keeping a good cheek weld. The front sight on your rifle is too low to utilize with the red dot mounted.
