Overview

When situations demand split-second target acquisition and maximum field of view, mount up the Strikefire II and get shooting. Compared to its smaller red dot cousins like the SPARC AR or Crossfire, the Strikefire II’s larger objective and 30mm tube design provide a larger field of view, and allow it to be mounted at just about any height using most common 30mm rings. A 4 MOA dot is easy to acquire quickly, and is available in red only or user-selected red/green. From AR-15s to shotguns, the Strikefire II offers big time versatility at a price that won’t break the bank.


The lower 1/3 co-witness cantilever mount model is ideal for AR platforms, positioning the optic bore center 40 mm above the base surface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I was looking for a red dot for my AR for close quarters and shirt range shooting drills. Without being too familiar with the red dot sights, I was dependent on the website and videos to help me make a decision. While there may be more expensive options, I felt that the Strikefire II was the best value in performance and capability. I am so glad I made the purchase. It is so easy to mount and zero. Once zeroed, target acquisition and engagement is fast and on target. It was a great addition to my AR. And while my AR will not win a beauty contest, it will hold it's own when it matters most. Thank you Vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Red Dot! I have had this glass (coupled with Vortex's eX magnifyer) and can confidently say it's rock solid and performs above expectations. The folks at Vortex nailed its ergonomics fod starters, button position and hold times prevent any accidental changes yet isnt burdensome in the field. The glass is clear and is tough, ive ran it in the field w/o covers and it still looks good. While a 3 moa dot would be an improvement, this dot wont conceal your target too horribly. I had perfect shot placement harvesting a Kentucky Whitetail at ~80yds in those tense seconds after sunse (DPMS A-15 /223 AMAX) Im so pleased with my strikefire and magnifier i would recommend Vortex for all your glass needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Red Dot My wife surprised me with the StrikeFire II for my birthday. She then surprised me with the Mirco3x multiplier this weekend, “just because”. (Found me a good wife!) I have this mounted to my AR-15 and could not be happier with the quality or the performance. I will be purchasing the Viper for my bolt action in the spring. My only wish is that VO would make the mount QR like the Micro3x Magnifier’s mount and the Precision QR Extended Cantilever Riflescope Mount; so I can quickly switch from this setup to a long-range scope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Red/Green Dot, Reliable, Clear and Tough. I've had this Red Dot for about 4 months now and it has finally been taken to the range and sighted-in. It performed beautifully and the optics were clear and I had no problem acquiring the target. This AR is going to a summer youth camp in a few week for several hundred kids to shoot and I have every confidence that it will perform flawlessly. Is it an $800.00 Red Dot? No, I didn't pay $800.00 for it, however if that would have been the price tag it would have been worth every penny. One can always find fault if they look hard enough, but in the long run what is it that counts more than everything else, does it perform as described and can you count on it!! Yes on both counts. So, is this the perfect Red Dot, non exist. But it sure does a great job doing what it was designed to do, and that is get you on target without a hitch. What more do you want than that? Pretty is always nice but pretty doesn't amount to anything if it isn't accurate. Vortex did a great job with this one and because of that several hundred kids are going to have the time of their lives this summer. Put a price tag on that!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A solid choice in a tubular red dot This was my very first choice when building my ar15. I was not disappointed (sort of) I beat the ever loving daylights out of this dot and rifle. Its never failed, not though water, snow and ice, mud, nor dirt. She always held zero, even after hard drops. But I did end up replacing it on my primary rifle, due to a switch over to LPVO's, also vortex. The reason was the dot size. Absolutely perfect for up close, but i like to shoot 200 yards. The dot covers a significant portion of your target at that range. Thats not vortexes fault though. Its just the nature of red dots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It helped put deer down. I mounted this on my 450 bushmaster AR I built and it has not let me down the past two years. I’ve taken deer at close range and all the way out to 250 yards. I have no complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very good Red Dot and great customer service I have the Red/Green version on my POF Constable 556 for about 3 months now, and put it through 600+ rounds. It is very solid and works fantastic. Easy to install, mount and use, high clarity of the glass, plus great customer service of Vortex, they are very responsive to my questions and always clarify clearly. If I have to say any improvement needed, it would be the elevation and windage adjustment. The turrets are quite small, sometimes it is not very easy to turn the dials precisely by using the raised bar on the dial cover. I had to be careful to make the right clicks I needed. And I wish Vortex could make the contrast of the Up/R and the arrow marks in a better way, they and the background all look "silver or white". Well, it might not be a problem to me if I was a few years younger. But overall, this is a great Red Dot, and you can't go wrong with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding quality and even better service! I bought the original strikefire a while back, and it was great! Left it on my rifle, which I left in my closet (no kids...don't worry). My dog chewed up the rubber covering the buttons on the optic. I called the customer service to see if I could buy new buttons for it. They told me to send it in to see if they could repair it for me, and they simply sent me a new one...the strikefire ii. So far, the new one has been great! Accurate and easy to operate. Thanks vortex for your great products and great service to back them up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have two, good for the money! I have one mounted on my Remington 870 and have enjoyed using it for fast Turkey harvests! I also had one mounted on my LR308 when I shot my biggest buck. Both have held up to recoil and I love the battery life/auto off as I forget to do that. My second one is now one an AR which makes for fun plinking and shooting steel. One criticism, I experienced a sketchy hunt in WI using the green/red version, hunting on a bright sunny day with snow on the ground, I could not see my my dot. Maybe the red only version is brighter but I can't say for sure. I bet if I got on a deer (rather than the snow) it would've shown up ,but that shook my confidence a little. Overall I really like the optic, customer service is great and replaced my turret caps when Iost them! Good optic for the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal quality with unbeatable price! This was my first purchase I made with Vortex. I was so impressed with how well this is built, how well it performs and how well it was priced they have won a lifetime customer of me. I have purchased four more Vortex optics since then and have never been disappointed. The warranty is also unbeatable but their products are very well built that I’ve never needed to use it. Love the Strikefire II along with my other optics. It has never failed me, always holds zero and it really a reliable red dot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear glass. I got this for my first AR and it works great, it’s super easy to see through and the red dot is very accurate. One of the best very things is that I can also use it on my turkey shotgun and switch it back and forth easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I have this one 2 rifles. 1-ar15 and the other on an ak... perfect for fast target acquisition up close and can also make 100+ yard shots with them. This is the only red dot I’ll ever purchase for any carbine rifle

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, affordable and ready to go. Great Red Dot sight with a good size window. I especially like that you can switch from red to green with the push of a button. Comes with a solid cantilever mount so it's ready to rock out of the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Red Dot Love!! I own several Strikefire red dots along with several other Vortex products. The biggest thing I can say is nothing. Nothing but awesomeness from Vortex. I have one Strikefire that was on my first 3 gun rifle from about 7 years ago, and it still works like a champ. I have spiked that rifle into barrels hit the optic on wall ports, dump barrels and countless other objects and it still works like new. Thanks Vortex for making an awesome product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hunting red dot Bought this optic a couple of years ago to throw on an AR. It worked well for that purpose, its ran great held zero and never had an issue. It road around in a pickup for awhile and in tractor cabs, held zero the whole time. Used it to take a few Coyotes during the fall. The only thing I don't like about it is the battery life and with that no auto on feature, but for a more Hunting oriented purpose or range work it has worked great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strikefire II lived up to the hype! A few guys at work had been talking about the Strikefire II and how great it was. I thought it was just a bunch of hype about the brand that all the cool kids were talking about. I couldn't have been more wrong. The first thing I was impressed about was the warranty that it comes with. Any company that will stand behind their product like that must be confident. Out of the box, the build quality was amazing for any price. It is very solidly made. The caps open and close very well and are quiet. The glass is very clear and can be used in bright daylight very easily. The reticle is crisp and does not blur. The brightness follows smoothly. Another great feature is the auto off. It's great to know that you won't waste all of your batteries if you forget to turn it off. I'm definitely sold on Vortex and am already shopping for another one for my hunting rifles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable, Quick Acquisition I purchased my Vortex Strikefire approximately two years ago and fell in love with it immediately. I was in the market for a red dot optic for my 14.5 middy and was saving for an Aimpoint variety before deciding to give the Strikefire a try, and I don't regret it. The optic has been mounted on my AR ever since, through thousands or rounds of both 5.56 and .22lr (with conversion kit), a couple classes and matches where the rifle routinely ended up on the ground. I've found target acquisition to be incredibly quick during snap or movement drills, button placement and function to be convenient, and battery life is incredible, having replaced the battery only one time since purchasing my Strikefire. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another one, already planning to top another build with one, and I've recommended it to several friends and will continue to do so.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well Wasnt sure which red dot to put on my AR, so I decided to go with this one. Once I zerod in, it was great. Was able to hunt small game and take to the range without any problems. The buttons seemed to not be as responsive over time which having to press it a little harder. This could be through wear and tear. The mount got loose over time so I would double check to make sure its snug before any activity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Traveled Bought this a few years ago and have been very happy with it. It ends up on just about every new gun I put together until I build another. Optic has several 10k of miles on it. Always holds zero and is easy to get to zero. Nice range of dot brightness for different conditions. Great battery life and super easy to replace when needed. Hear the warranty is great, haven’t needed it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bulletproof optic Owned this optic for around six months and it’s now my go to optic. I like it so much I’m even considering buying a second one as I tend to swap it between two rifles. The red and green dots don’t line up so you do have to re-zero if you wish to switch, but I tend to only use the green at it seems to be most vibrant. Sight picture is good and it’s easy to get on target fast. Would recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic features I bought this red dot over a year ago, and it’s been worth every penny! I’ll tell you right now if you’re looking for one heck of a red dot, this is it! Thank VortexOptics for coming up with such an awesome reliable Red Dot. The features is Red dot and green dot not to mention the different bright mode settings. What more do you want. Highly recommended and very affordable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Budget Optic I have owned this optic for a few years now, and it has been the primary optic on my ar since I bought it. I'm not going to say that it is better than the Aimpoint Pro, but it has very similar features. In fact, after using both optics I must say its hard to see much of a difference between the two. And at such an affordable price, I would rather have the strikefire 2

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great buy for the price Bought this dot about a year ago to throw on my AR-15 build and since then it’s held up to all the torture and abuse I’ve thrown at it. Clear dot and sight picture with the ability to quickly acquire the dot with both eyes open, or with off eye closed. Was planning to upgrade to a more expensive red dot down the line but never did because this one has held true to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First RDS I bought the Strikefire II when I bought my first AR. It matched the budget price point I needed it to, and I assumed the quality would match the low price I paid. Much to my surprise, it performed excellently, with no faults despite my continued torture testing. It never lost zero, never lost the reticle, never failed. It was the best $200 optic I could ask for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great red dot I ended up getting this optic in a trade and I've had a great time with it ever since. It's going on my 300blk ar15 once I get around to putting it together but it holds zero and the illumination is fantastic, also having the ability to change the color of the dot is awesome and there is no time trying to find the green dot i have noticed. Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Optic I have had this optic for a few years and it holds up great for the price. I relied on this optic to get me through swat tryouts at my department. I fired thousands of rounds and this optic kept its zero. This was used in cold, warm, and rainy weather and has been knocked around. I recommend this product not only for the price but for the great performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great BANG for your buck I purchase a StrikeFire and couldn't be more pleased. I was able to zero it, very quickly, and had an easy time running and gunning with it. The sight is very easy to acquire and makes transitions a snap. As all Vortex products I've purchased, this one has a great price point and made it a no brainer to purchase. Thanks and keep up the good work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Red Dot I’ve been running this red dot on my ACR for around 4 years and have had no major complaints. The dot is crisp, the housing is robust and it’s nice that it comes with a cantilever mount. My only complaint is the weight.....it’s hefty compared to an aimpoint t-2 sized optic, but if weight isn’t a huge deal then I would recommend this optic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this red dot I bought this red dot last year to put on my AR for target shooting and Hog hunting. Love being able to switch from red to green and brighten/dim the dot very easily and quickly. Scope looks good mounted on the rifle and does it’s job making target acquisition quick and accurate. Regularly go 30 for 30 at 100yds on an 8inch steel target.
