Exactly what I was looking for. Great Value.
Vortex Strikefire 2 for Sale Here
I have had ARs for many years, but I am old school in many ways, including my old bespeceled eyes. I have always scoped my rifles to help me see the target clearer and never thought a red dot was something I would like. Boy, was I wrong. I only received this late yesterday, so I mounted it on an RRA 5.56 that had been in the safe awhile and had no sights. I took it out today to sight in. First shot at 50 yards, I was on the black on an 8" target, and in 6-7 shots, I had the sight zeroed in. I really like being able to shoot with both eyes open, it feels very natural, and the dot is very sharp and worked perfectly in bright sunlight dimmed about halfway down. Super easy to acquire the target. Very well built and with a very nice mount included. I never write reviews, but the Vortex StrikeFire was impressive enough to sit down and write one; if you can't tell, I am very happy with the Vortex StrikeFire 2 and will probably add more to my collection.
My Vortex Strikefire 2 review
I caught this on sale and bought two of them. The glass is clear, and I like the red/green option. I have read where people have mounted a dot scope, and it already is zeroed out of the box. I was always skeptical. I put one on a .300 Blackout pistol. I took it to the range and fired a round at 15 yards to see if the dot was even on paper. It was at the bottom of my target dot. I backed up to 25 yards (my desired range for this pistol) and put three rounds dead center on a 2 inch target dot. I was genuinely amazed. My wife and I backed up to 50 yards and still had centered hits on a steel target, definitely worth the money.

The red/green dot sight is perfect for the money. The mount that comes with it is very useful and good quality. I mounted it on my Adam Arms AR piston rifle. The sight it self was very easy to sight in. For me at 25yards, it was 4in down and two into the right. I dialed in the correct number of clicks, fired the next shot, and dead center the target. It never changed for the next 40 rounds fired. Exact adjustments. The top of the adjustment caps has a blade made into the top to adjust the screw slot. The red was better to see in a bright day. I like the push button adjustment of the on/ off brightness control. I do not know how it would hold up in combat, but it should last for everyday use as most people use it for target shooting and home defense.

Accurate & good sight
I totally recommend this sight. Its good quality and adjustment of red dot brightness so you can shoot even longer range. I just shot deer to 125m with this. And i shot 3 rounds to 100m at shooting range shot holes was only in 3 cm diameter in target paper.
Why Spend More?
Shot Aimpoint M68’s and ACOG’s as an infantryman and loved them both. Now that I’m a civilian and gear is no longer issued to me, spending the money for either of those is not practical. Let’s face it; you probably won’t be using your rifle for combat anytime here at home. I am not a competitive shooter and do not need an optic that costs more than my rifle did. This is a well build Red/Green Dot sight that will serve you well for many years. It’s got flip-up lens protectors that will protect it while being transported in your car or through the foliage. It holds zero and works in temperature ranges almost identical to higher-end red dots. The vortex strikefire red dot sight is lower 1/3 co-witness, which means that you will be able to see iron sights in the smaller 1/3 of the tube, allowing you to keep shooting if the battery should die. I like red dot optics because you can shoot with both eyes open, and no matter where your head is when looking through the tube, you will hit what you are aiming at if the dot is on target (parallax free). The StrikeFire 2 is waterproof and nitrogen filled to prevent internal fogging. This unit is imported but has quality comparable to an Aimpoint. A Vortex flip-up magnifier can be mounted behind it as well, although I do not plan to do so.
I would rebuy this red dot sight.
The Bortex Strikefire ii red/green dot is very good for the money. The mount that comes with it is handy and good quality. I mounted it on my Adam Arms AR piston rifle. The sight itself was very easy to sight in. For me, at 25yards, it was 4in down and 2in to the right. I dialed in the correct number of clicks, fired the next shot and dead center the target. It never changed for the next 40 rounds fired. Exact adjustments. Also, the top of the adjustment caps has a blade made into the top to adjust the screw slot.

Best Red Dot sight for a great Price
This Vortex Strikefire ii red dot does it all. I have 3 of them on various guns and have not had a problem with any of them holding zero, and that includes my AR-10. It is switchable red/green and also has a touch button for NVG use. The only issue If you want to call that is that the NVG switch is way too easy to press by accident, and it will make you think that the sight is off. Once you are aware of this slight limitation, you learn quickly to check the NVG switch before you try turning your view off and back on. Plenty bright in Midday sun and keeps the point of aim after hundreds of rounds put through it. Great Deal
