Customer Ratings & Reviews
Excellent Red Dot Sight
The product was delivered promptly. The sight was very easy to install on my M&P 15 and easy to zero in. I managed to lose the caps for the windage and elevation controls. I emailed Vortex to ask if I could buy replacements. They responded by sending replacements free of charge. I would recommend this product to a friend.
This is far more impressive than expected, as a four tour combat veteran as a Navy Combat Diver and active duty PMC SPECIAL FORCES OPERATOR. I've used many types of red dot sights, from EOTech to DARPA classified sights. This is just a clean looking, clear lensed, heavy-duty "I mean this thing can take one hell of a beating and stay zeroed" red dot optic. I own 3, have one on a 300blackout custom AR15, a Ruger M1A CQB, and my HK416D plinker, quick target acquisition, excellent battery life good looking and durable what more can you ask for. Buy this now no need to spend $500 on EOTech/Aimpoint
A Red Dot Sight sight for old eyes
I plan to shoot a .22 S&W Victory autoloader in Steel Challenge this spring. I'm a far-sighted geezer, so I must wear corrective lenses to get that front sight in focus. I selected the Vortex Venom sight due to its small size on the Victory. Once I had sighted it in (an east chore), I was impressed with the clarity of the three moa dot, especially when set on auto-brightness. Then I discovered that the dot is virtually parallax-free. Place the dot on the target and squeeze! My most recent discovery is that my far-sighted corrective glasses are no longer needed. With normal non-corrective shooting glasses, I am able to focus on the target and dot simultaneously!
This is like cheating!
I shoot competitively on a local level with a heavily modified Glock 34. this has been the single biggest boon to my accuracy at any distance. In retrospect, if I was shooting for accuracy, trying for the smallest grouping possible, I would look for a smaller dot. But the 3 MOA is fast. Fast to acquire your target, and faster to get back on target after the shot. I enjoy this red dot. I included a video of me shooting with it only a couple of weeks after mounting.
Not bad red dot, could easily be better
It is made overseas. Would give it five stars if the windage and elevation knobs had positive clicks or locking set screws. Though this is a budget sight compared to a Trijicon, this is still not "cheap," and these added features would make a good sight excellent IMO. For the price will still buy again easily.
I am very pleased with my Vortex Venom red dot sight
I purchased this unit for my Glock 34 MOS. Vortex will supply the correct length mounting screws at no charge. You need to call them to get these. I do not work in law enforcement, so this is a range gun and a personal defense weapon. I am very impressed at the speed of target acquisition and accuracy. I am sure the combination of the Glock and this Vortex sight is much better than the accuracy that these old eyes can obtain. I can recommend this sight without reservation.
Great optic red dot sight, great value
I'm in my mid 60's, and my eyes are having trouble with iron sights; and through recommendations and research, I purchased the Vortex Venom 3 MOA and mounted it on my Canik TP9SFx for about a month ago. I finally have 900 rounds through it feel comfortable in rendering an opinion. The installation was as smooth as one could hope for. When mounting, the Canik manual states to use the mounting screws that are included with the pistol to mount the plates. Suggest you use 'blue' Loctite when installing the mounting plates to mitigate the plates losing up. Yeah, I'm one of 'those guys that reads the manuals. The battery cap does have fine threads, and I can see where some people could cross-thread them. I don't rush anything when it comes to firearms, so no problem there. Range time: The optic was easy to sight in and only took a few shots. It has held zero perfectly without any issues with function. The field of view was more than adequate and clear. My groups tightened up substantially over the use of iron sights. Some reviewers have complained of the dot being blurry or a starburst. I've found that this is typical when the dot intensity is too high for the light you are shooting in. I select the manual mode and use a lower intensity. It gets put back on the automatic setting when I put it away, as the auto-off feature only engages in this setting. Overall: The Vortex Venom is a quality red dot and Great value. I anticipate purchasing another in the near future and have been recommending it to others. Their warranty (tested-see below) is real, and the people I dealt with were very helpful and polite. On Vortex: I recently had the occasion to test their warranty when I managed to lose the battery cap spring from my SPARC Red Dot. My klutz moves, but they promptly sent a replacement battery cap (not just the spring) at no expense to me. A nice surprise when a warranty actually means something.

So I bought the Springfield XDM 9 that comes with this cool little red dot; long story short, Springfield failed to mention that they don't put any kind of thread lock on the screws holding it on. Granted, I should have known better and checked; I was just so excited to use it. Anyway, so about 130 rounds in the screws had finally backed out and the thing came back and slammed me right in the forehead before going about 40 feet in the other direction. Yeah, it legit hit me that hard. I was bleeding pretty bad, and of course, like a real shooter didn't even notice ;D brought the sights back up and realized I was missing my red dot and decided to keep shooting. After I dumped the mag I saw it past the firing line, so I got the ro to go get it...NOT EVEN A SCRATCH!!!!! I couldn't believe it. Glass is perfect, the body is perfect, still works great. If it can survive hitting my thick skull followed by slamming into the ground and going that far, yeah, this little thing is tough!
Great value in this style optic
I mounted this using an egw red dot mount on a Ruger SR1911 Commander in 9mm. Fits perfectly, the dot is bright, not too big for precise shots, but easy to pick-up and follow in rapid firing (plate racks,etc.} Auto-off feature is nice. Small, compact, and lightweight, I would recommend this sight without hesitation.
Vortex Venom on AR15
I joined the ranks of AR owners in 2014. Between 2014 and 2018, I spent nearly $500 on various Red Dot and Holo sights of dubious quality and manufacturer's economic sights (yes, you can read that as "cheap," I freely admit it). None of these various sights were adequate or effective. All of them had various flaws that proved the old adage of "You get what you pay for," as every single one was poor for numerous reasons, and all showed poor quality workmanship, design, and substandard components. After many discussions and a lot of research and numerous product recommendations from owners, I decided upon the Vortex Venom 3MOA Red Dot. The Venom arrived within a few days with days. Once I opened it and mounted to my AR, the differences between the Vortex Venom and the cheaper optics I'd purchased. Small, compact, and a superior design to the cheapos, I was amazed at the superior coated lens and the first site I'd tried with a Dot that really was a Dot, not a fuzzy and imperfect dots that were anything but a dot. Using a laser bore sight, I was quickly able to adjust the windage and elevation to superimpose on the boresight at a hundred yards. With the Vortex Venom, my groups at a hundred yards tightened up very quickly and were very consistent. The Venom was a winner hand down. My only complaint, and this was my fault, was the height of the sight. It was too low to use comfortably for more than a few shots at a time. A couple of weeks later, I ordered the Vortex Quick Connect Riser specifically made for the Vortex Venom. That did the trick as it raised the sight just enough for a contortionist free height. I highly recommend the Vortex Venom. Great sight at a great price.
Vortex Venom Reflex Sight
It's mounted on my Glock 40 MOS 10mm. The accuracy I'm getting is better than I'm usually capable of. The only Mod.to the Pistol is an LW Alpha Wolf Barrel. At 25yds. With Factory Ammo or my Reloads, it makes one ragged hole; These are not Target loads, They are Full power 10mm.
Best Red Dot Sight is the vortex venom
Mounted the Vortex Venom on a Glock G40 MOS 10mm Auto (contact Vortex for the correct sized mounting screws @ no cost). The Vortex Venom holds zero under full power 10mm loads. The optics are excellent with no distortion or noticeable loss of light transmission, so much so that you don't even realize you are looking through optics. The red dot is clear and bright, with the auto-brightness feature a perfect balance with ambient light. The top-loading battery compartment is a 'must-have' ... I can't imagine having to remove the entire sight just to replace a battery, then have to reinstall the sight and re-zero it, and eventually, wear or strip the mounting threads/screw heads. I use the auto-brightness feature exclusively, and the original battery is still functioning brightly after much longer than the 140 hours advertised.
