Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good entry level This is a great scope for the entry level. Glass is clear enough for use at the range, or even 3 gun competition. Zoom level has great texture allowing for easy grip, and is smooth enough to adjust with ease. Weight is not that much of an issue. The reticle is easy to read, and use. The con I have with the scope is the glass in certain lighting will have a brownish hue to it, and some distortion on the edge of a field of view at max power. Overall is great scope to get started. Pros: - Cost - Easy to read reticle - Weight - Illumination is good enough in low light and overcast days Cons: - Glass has a brown hue in certain lighting - Illumination washes out in bright day light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope! I bought this to put on a 16" 5.56 AR that I use for deer, coyotes, and fun shooting. Mounted it using a LaRue mount so that I could swap it out for a 3x9 if need be. I got rid of a red dot and think the Strike Eagle will end up doing what both the red dot and the 3x9 did except in one package. The scope works well enough in low light that I don't use the lighted function as much as I though I would. The lighted reticle works well on darker targets and should be very nice for hogs. I shot a couple of 1" groups at 100yds and then rang the 8" gong at 300yds until it got boring. The hold over lines work great for that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fanrastic optic priced lower than it should be! I bought the Strike Eagle about 3 months ago for 3 gun. Right away I was impressed with it. I was somewhat skeptical of what could be considered a "budget optic," but I had read enough reviews to think it was worth a shot. The scope is much more "solid" than other scopes in its price range. The sturdy metal construction of the scope and the positive clicks of the the elevation and wind age knobs aren't typical of other scopes in this class. The illuminated reticle took some getting used to, but after a few hundred rounds I was using it like a red dot up close and dialing it up for distance in no time. It's a great do-it-all optic offering up close speed and distance precision.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect AR platform scope I was a cop for 25 years, I was issued an M4 for 14 years, with a Leupold MK4 C/QT scope. After retirement, I was allowed to purchase the rifle without the scope. I chose the Strike Eagle as a replacement, and am totally satisfied. The optics are very clear, and I really like the ETCHED & ILLUMINATED reticle. The Vortex scope is superior to the Leupold in all aspects. For the price, I could not find a scope anywhere near the quality with similar features. My only critique is that the turret adjustment could be crisper, more positive. The turret knobs are good, but not perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nub's first real scope, Love it I'm new to all this, recently purchased my first AR15. I told my long range comp buddy roughly what I wanted in terms of capability, that is, close to medium/long range quick target acquisition. In a way I wanted a red dot, but also wanted magnification. He told me what I wanted was a Vortex Strike Eagle 1-8 or 1-6. He was right, however I don't know any better other than looking through his $3500 scope and thinking I may want a first focal plane. After a quick rundown of the hold overs and me (not good) zeroing the scope at about 25 yards (wrong) I can consistently transition from 100 yards to 380 yards to 480 yards. I need to fine tune the zero to get my hold overs more accurate and yes I chase the target a bit sometimes, but I landed that 480 shot first try dead center on a 10" plate with a changing 5-10 mph wind and cheap plinking ammo. I was giddy to say the least.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strike Eagle is a home run Wow, where to start. The Strike Eagle is an amazing do-it-all, short- to medium-range scope. I've had it on an AR and it's now sitting in low 30mm rings on a suppressed Ruger 10/22. Both platforms shine with this scope sitting on top. Construction is first-rate, as is the glass. The reticle is necessarily busy but it works, and the illumination settings are well designed. Depending on the platform you run this on, the weight may or may not come into play. At about 17oz it's not a featherweight, but it's not a lead brick either. I'm very, very pleased with the Strike Eagle. Very well made, very versatile and a purchase that I don't regret in the least.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect optic for AR build I bought this optic when it was first released because it had all the features I wanted for this rifle set-up. The reticle is great for using at close range or for stretching the legs of the 5.56. Having the lighted reticle at one power is as good as having a red dot and switching to six gives you all the magnification this rifle needs. The BDC works well and the glass is clear and gets plenty of light through it. The only issue I have is the weight of it, but considering all the features it offers (especially at it's affordable price) that's a minor issue at best. It would likely cost twice as much if Vortex could reduce the weight by 4 ounces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The epitome of the budget optic After purchasing it and putting it on my AR my initial thoughts were wow this thing looks great. I thought the lens covers took away from the view I wanted so I removed them. The tube is thin enough to fade away from the sight picture all together when you're using both eyes. The ability to acquire targets fast in 1x with the illumination on combined with the zoom ability and clarity of this optic is phenomenal. The little thing on the side with the vortex logo flew off first shot, but that has been the only issue in over 3000 rounds. I love how fast you can zero this optic for other guns I put it on. (Only because I am saving for another and have to move it for now.) I have recommended this optic to everyone I know and meet over a red dot for AR's. If you are looking for the best optic for the dollar for your AR this is hands down the one for you. The only thing I would like to see is the option to go with another reticle. The photos from my phone don't come close to the clarity this has.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Workhorse Of An Optic Just bought this last week and let me say, I have zero remorse. The glass is clear as can be and the brightness setting are fitting for just about any eye. I zeroed at 50 per recommendation and shot at 100 yds and my first groups were at about a half inch to an inch and my final shots could definitely fit inside a quarter, and that was shooting suppressed about of a 10.5 inch barrel. Also the adjustments are easy to set and I definitely like that you can mark your adjustments. I just bought a killflash for it so it’ll be ready for a lot even though it’s not saying much seeing as this thing is tank out the box with the warranty. That’s another awesome thing, the warranty. No questions asked, replaced or repaired. Who wouldn’t want that? All this being said, you’ve got a customer for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome glass and great AR scope!!! I bought this to put on my AR. Had a few problems at first with not staying on target. Found out it was my shoddy scope mounting technique of not torqing the mount bolts. After I got that taken care of the scope worked as advertised! Great glass, awesome clarity, the reticle is always clear, and when you turn on the color, at the highest seeing it does bled a little around the edges in a lowly lit setting, but out on a sunny day, there's no distortion or bled from the red. This thing feels like it was built like a tank and can probably withstand Hiroshima if it needed to. I recommend this scope to anyone shooting on an AR platform out to around 400 yds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb I bought one of these shortly after they were introduced. I decided I wanted something more than a red dot on my AR...while friends were running Nikons on their rifles I purchased this. Wow...love being able to engage targets quickly at close range. Just as fast as a red dot. Then moving out to 400 yards isn't a problem either. BDC holds true for my loads. The illumination is a great option for when I use it for coyote hunting at night or in low light conditions. It's been bumped and banged around and has help it's zero. Well worth the money, you cant beat the features packed into this scope whether you use it for competition, hunting, or just range fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great versatile scope for the money. I bought this scope for an Ar-15 build where I wanted the best of both worlds for ranges with out much sacrifice. At 1x the scope is clear but there is a bit of magnification so I wouldn't call it a true 1x. However, I don't mind the difference. At distance, the reticle can be quite large out past 300 meters. With some practice, I was able to overcome that. The fit and finish is where Vortex saved money compared to the more expensive scout scopes they offer with better alloys and glass. For a budget to moderate build it will do nicely for everyone. For the price you can't do much better especially with the life time warrenty.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor QC and was not sharp enough.... I mail ordered a 1-6 Strike Eagle a couple of years back. I mounted in on an AR and after two range outings it became very fuzzy. I sent it back to Vortex, they fixed something loose inside and returned it. It lasted a couple of outings and again was incapable of accurately resolving aiming points on a 100 yd. scope target. Sent it back again and I seem to recall they replaced objective lens. It was slightly better with that change but, optical performance still far below a comparably priced scope by other manufacturers. This was the first and only Vortex product I have been disappointed in. My advice is to save up your money and buy higher in the Vortex line....I sold mine at a loss to a person that thought it was good enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond Expectations! I purchased this scope to upgrade the optics on my AR, replacing a very entry level red dot. The brightness and clarity of this scope is amazing! The reticle is great and glows bright even in bright sunlight! I love that the reticle is etched in the glass so even if you lose power, the scope is still functional. I have such an appreciation for how Vortex continues to go the extra mile. The scope comes with a backup battery inside the windage adjustment cap. Last but not least, how can you get better than Vortex’s VIP Warrenty. Replacement for any reason for LIFE! Gotta love a company that isn’t afraid to stand behind it’s products and clearly loves what they do!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top notch optic! Great on a bullpup. The Strike Eagle 1-6 lived on my TAVOR SAR bullpup rifle since September 2015. A year and a half and 3k+ rounds later, I can confidently report that it is truly an outstanding optic. The Strike Eagle survived a good bit of abuse through training in sand, snow, and rain and never had to be re-zeroed. I expected the optic to be reliable in close distances and have the capability to confidently reach 150yards+ without much pause between shots -- the strike eagle delivered! The clarity of glass and reticle is on par with some $2k+ scopes I've seen -- just tells you that great optics don't have to cost as much a mortgage. Happy to see Vortex nail yet another product !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding I bought this Optic about a month ago. I’ve bought multiple other optics from vortex but this is by far my favorite to date. I’ve already convinced one friend to buy this scope and I will continue to recommend this scope or any vortex scope really. Their warranty and customer service are top notch and quite frankly the best. I stopped in to pick up this scope with my two boys and everyone was so friendly and watched over the boys while I did some looking around. Great place to visit if you have some free time or are an avid hunter looking for a great optic for your next hunt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Impressed After meeting Bentley Parsons, Vortex's man in the UK, at the shooting show and listening to his advice then trying the Strike Eagle I bought one. It's mounted on my 7x64 stutzen rifle and it has impressed me. The quality of the glass, the illuminated recticle, the warranty versus the price. Haven't found a single negative yet. (Really unusual for me) I've promised to send some pictures to Bently so they'll be here soon but looks right on the rifle. I am so impressed by the Vortex brand that I've now gone out there and tried the new Razor HD gen II 4.5 - 27x56. I'm going to put a Razor on my long range tactical rifle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good I bought 2 Increadibley clear, accurate and easy to use. Easy shots at 6x at 200-300 yrds on 6”steel plate. For proof of concept have used 1x out to 100yrd on 6”steel plate with great results. Generous eye relief, great illumination. True 1 power for close quarters and easy clear 6x for extended ranges. No fish eye or Dark edges like in similar scopes. Comes with nice scope caps wich is worth alot to me. The extra battery under the windage cape is great backup also! I have one on my current .223 rifle with the one peice Vortex mount and the AR Reticle works great. I just ordered another Strike Eagle for another scout style rifle i am currently working on, 10/10 would recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great optic for an AR! I like my Strike Eagle optic. I was looking for a sight I could use like a red dot but didn't have to add a flip up mount for magnification. The reticle itself is nice. The crosshairs are thicker than I expected but it's not detrimental to performance. This is mounted on an AR after all, not a precision rifle. The ring round the crosshairs draws your vision right in. My main reason for choosing this optic over other similar choices with similar price ranges is definitely Vortex's fantastic warranty. I do not have to worry should I do anything stupid with my rifle. It is a great choice and would recommend it to anyone looking for a 1-X power magnification scope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent optics for the money My first powered scope purchase that I've made after doing about two months of research. Everything pointed back to vortex for their quality, warranty and price. I have the mounted to my 5.56x45 rifle and it performs flawlessly. The glass is clear, not the absolute best, but perfect for my needs. The reticle is etched in the glass which I love and the brightness settings are superb. I haven't used it in daylight brightness but I imagine with the etched reticle it wouldn't matter. Solid construction and feel. I'm so pleased with this scope that I'm going to purchase this exact one for another 300AAC build.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal Optic For the Price If you're shopping for an optic and you're budget is $500 or less, look no further. With the exception of a long range (past 600 yards), there is nothing this scope won't do for you. On 1x, you might as well be looking through an extremely clear red dot. On 6x, you can easily identify and engage targets out to 600 yards maybe further, I've never tried past 600. The reticle is truly genius, making swinging back and forth through close range targets too easy. It's very lightweight yet durable, comes with an extra battery, lens caps, lens cloth. At the price point this optic is going for - I don't believe there's anything that beats it. Thanks again Vortex - keep being awesome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SOLID fits great on AR platform. Super quick eye focus and target acquisition. It was a bit larger and touch heavier than I thought, BUT, because it's built like a tank. The adjustments are super user-friendly and no doubt this optic will run great at the range or in the field for heavy and rapid fire. The magnification wheel was a bit tight for me but after some use and throwing on a switch view---game over, excellent! Only reason went with 4 stars is because you're adding a bit of weight to your rig so prepare for a quality optic weight, this is not plastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Eagle has landed Phew, IF you are looking for a varmint scope or perfect AR scope then look no further. I am using the strike eagle on one of my 3 gun rifles. It is the perfect mixture for needing to be able to take close up shots but yet reach out to a distance. The 1-6 fits the bill perfectly for allowing acquisition close and long. I also placed one of these on a varmint gun for Coyote and it's just as perfect. Illuminte BDC reticle, nice thick construction. The Zoom is very stiff but will break in to a nice retention. It also COMES with flip caps so the lenses are protected. Not to mention it looks MEAN on a rifle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, Versatile, Combat Scope I bought this optic for use on my various AR-15's and it worked flawlessly. Very clear glass, nice, albeit a little busy reticle, good magnification range, and a very generous eyebox. I wish the scope had 1/4 MOA adjustments as I'm a bit of a perfectionist, but it works great regardless. I'll be mounting this on a close to mid range 556/223 Bullpup soon and am very excited for the results. I have a work provided rifle with a Luepold VX-6 1-6x illuminated scope and despite the $600 difference I find the quality differences to be negligible. If I had to pick between the two it would be a toss up, but if I had to buy one for myself the sheer value of the Strike Eagle wins out hands down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't ask for more I bought this optic for the soul perpose of coyote hunting and I'm here to tell you that it does that very well. The clarity of the glass is great, I was able to see the yotes coming in from a long ways out and with the BDC retical taking those longer(ish) shots was a piece of cake. I've also never had to replace to battery and I've had it in there since I bought it over a year ago. Bottom line if your looking for a optic to shot out to 500yrds, not break the bank, and be able to take shots at very close ranges. Then this is the one for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding product and company. I got into 3 gun few years back and started off with a 4x fixed sight for distance and a red dot for close in. My old eyes made it harder to see out past 300 yards with the 4x. President at my gun club put me onto Vortex for rimfire precison matches at our club and I am very pleased with my scope. When the Strike Eagle came out I picked one up and it is great. For the price you cannot beat this scope. Even my old eyes can handle steel plates out to 450 yards at 6x and I beat some of the young guys with regularity. You can't beat the customer service team with the lifetime warranty on their products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenom product!! Super-phenom service from the Vortex Team! I purchased this phenomenal Strike Eagle 1-6x24 AR-BDC on the recommendation of Travis Vogel (Vortex Customer Pro Extraordinaire!) for use in a custom AR Bump Fire. I love the reticle! It affords fast target acquisition and great focal length options based on the shooter's preferences. I paired it up with Vortex rings and put it through a real torture test every couple of weeks. Even under severe conditions replicating "full-auto fire" the Strike Eagle stays at zero. Be congrats from Dan (Vortex President) to everyone on the Vortex team for always striving to recognize the "needs, wants and desires" of their customers. I love an American company that shines bright because they have a superb people with excellent attitudes! Way to go Vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex strike eagle I bought the Vortex Strike eagle to mount on my AR because I was tired of carrying a rifle and a shotgun into the heavy brush to hunt coyotes. I fell in love with it on my first coyote when I dropped him dead in his tracks running at 150 yards. I have killed coyotes as close as 15 yards with it and the true 1X magnification makes it easy to pick up fast moving targets. The durability is unmatched and I would definitely put this on all my tactical rifles

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact yet versatile I purchased this rifle scope after having a strikefire II for about a year. The strike fire is an excellent piece of glass but due to my astigmatism I had some trouble with the dot coming in and out of focus, plus I was looking to reach out a little further. The 1-6x adds the ability to bring your focus up close and push your rifle for some fun plinking. The horseshoe reticle that is etched on the glass adds the piece of mind if you forget to check your battery before storing your rifle that you will still have a frame of reference. But there’s more! The added bonus of having a extra battery compartment in the turret for spares. This optic is great for the price and performs fantastically.
