Get on target fast with the SPARC II. Ultra-compact and lightweight, the SPARC II (Speed Point Aiming for Rapid Combat) is equally at home mounted on an AR-15 or shotgun. Digital rear facing controls for powering on/off and adjusting the 2 MOA daylight bright red dot brightness at ten intensity levels - automatically returning to the last dot intensity used when powered up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Frist red dot This was my frist red dot I was looking for months priced from 70 dollars to 400, I chose vorext I am sure glad I did. My wife threw alway my box it still had mounts in it. I emailed vortex see what going cost me to replace them, they said we got you covered and I ask how much shipping was they said nothing in about a week I had my mounts. Now to quality of the Sparc 2 the dot was cripse zeroed in veary easy. I have had over 6 moths still holding zero battery is still going good but if it goes out it be ok you get two batters. My wife likes mine so much I had get her one also. Because how well this company treated me I am vorext customer for life!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Red Dot I absolutely love this Red Dot. I have cycled through my fair share of red dots, some breaking and some sucking, until I found the SPARC 2. I love Vortex because with its VIP warranty I will never have to buy another red dot again. I have this for life. The only problem I have had with my SPARC 2 is the from cap doesn't close right. I have to hold onto the main part to close the lid or it will slide deeper onto the right and wont close. Vortex has been awesome and has sent me a couple extra caps but I cant seem to fix it. Its not a big enough problem to send the whole thing in so i just deal with it. Buy this sight. You wont regret it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding "Bang For Your Buck" Optic As an everyday man who constantly strives to find a balance between quality and price point, the SPARC II was a huge win on both just plain delivers! I have mine mounted on my S&W M&P15T and I can't say enough about this optic. Quality build, simple controls, good battery life, water/fog proof, crisp bright dot, quick zero that holds, multiple mounting options included, and not to mention the Vortex VIP Warranty...all at a fraction of the price of some other well known brands...and trust me, being in the military, I have used them all, and the SPARC II is easily on par with them. If you are looking for a quality red dot at a reasonable price...look no further!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An inexpensive alternative to the aim****t I'll admit, I'm a Vortex junkie. I've several PST's and a Crossfire II 1-4 so I'd tried the Strikefire and wasn't impressed, sold it. I just built an AR with LWCI upper and decided to give the SPARC II a try. I took the rifle (and sight) to the range yesterday and got her sighted in in no time. Was consistently hitting the steel plate at 100 yards with every shot. As luck would have it, another member was there sighting in his new AR with the expensive brand aim****t on it. He couldn't get it zero'd (not sure if it was rifle, sight or shooter) but it was a Colt AR. I'm happy saved ~$300 compared to his and mine zero'd.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for anything! I first bought the gen1 spac a few years ago for a flat top AR and could not be happier with it, ive looked at aimpoints, and yes they are nice but not $600 nice. I purchased a second sparc (gen2) for another AR because i loved the first one soo much! They are clear and bright! Battery life is awsome, they are easy to zero and boy are they tough! My dad wanted a red dot for his .44mag marlin levergun because hes getting close to 70 and buckhorn sights just arent cutting it for him, ill bet you all can guess whats on top of his marlin. Another sparc! Great product, great warranty! Next on my list is a Viper PST 1-4!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended I bought the Sparc || about 8 months ago and I absolutely love it. I have it mounted on a AR10 which I use for pig hunting and let me tell you this thing gets beat up and abused. I have never had to re sight it in which is amazing. I know y'all probably think I'm crazy, but this takes the abuse way better than my EOTech. I'm actually thinking about getting rid of it and buying another Sparc ||. This is a great product and I recommend this product for everyone! And no I was not paid to write this review this is just a very good product. Thank you Vortex for an amazing product at a affordable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I had been trying to find a midrange priced red dot and had narrowed it down to a holosun and a sparc 2. After a little more thought I went with the sparc 2 and man is it great! I mounted it and paced off 50 yards to group it. I took 3 shots, walked up and checked the target and it was 1 inch low! A few clicks and had a cloverleaf bulls-eye, I am so happy I bought this, and Vortex will be my go to co. from here on out for more. I already ordered and received the extra battery holder and it is perfect, I couldn't be happier with it. I've already had about 250 rounds through it, zero problems. Thanks Vortex!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best optic hands down, even Rambo would approve! You reading this means my opinion matters, i bought this optic back in late 2017. After doing EXTENSIVE research for an optic. Every where i looked said Vortex. The price was what really set me up. Plus the unconditional lifetime warranty they offer. It’s on my AR, chambered in 5.56 NATO, out of the box simple set up. OUT OF THE BOX clover leaf grouping at 75 yards. Now mind you, that optic had been dropped, beat around and still held its zero. It doesn’t fog up, waterproof, versatile, CANT STRESS it’s easy to use! I mean even John Rambo would love this optic. So take my honest opinion and get you one!
