The origin of the Vortex Optics is a typical American "business" story with a happy end. The company is an American owned business that has arisen from family owned small retail outdoor store to one of the leading North American optics manufacturers. This Wisconsin-based manufacturer catalogs so many different optical devices to suit different purposes and different consumers for more than 30 years. Their products list includes riflescopes, red dot sights, binoculars, monocular, spotting optics and rangefinders in various price categories ranging from less expensive ones suitable for the beginner to more expensive high-end scopes for professionals. Along with wildly popular Viper and Diamondback line, Vortex released in 2015 new series of dual concept riflescopes dubbed a Strike Eagle. This low-powered, variable optics offered to military, law enforcement, hunters, and civilians are designed to allow engaging targets that could suddenly appear from anywhere from very close range out to extended distances fast and easy. Unlike high-powered scopes intended for specialized long-range competition market as well as for inexperienced shooters expecting to get better results with bigger magnification, low-powered scopes are perfect for engaging moving targets from point-blank distances out to the much-extended ranges of 500 yards.
