When situations demand split-second target acquisition and maximum field of view, mount up the Strikefire II and get shooting. Compared to its micro 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 for the money I bought this optic about 2 years ago. The first thing I noticed was how high it mounts above the rail. When bring the rifle to firing position, cheek against the stock line of sight alignment is spot on. From looking at it mounted on the rifle it does look to be sitting high but it doesn’t interfere with performance. Since then I have but over 1000 rounds through my rifle and the sight has stayed true since. Of course I remove it to clean and once reinstalled recalibrate the sight but it has remained reliable. Still haven’t changed to battery. Optics remains bright and clean with no distortion to clarity. Thank you Vortex for putting out another great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Red Dot For AR Platform I bought the Strikefire for my AR-15 after several friends highly recommended it to me. It is perfect for purpose my AR-15 was built to serve as a recreational shooter and self-defense rifle. I appreciated that the cantilever mount came with the scope. I had it zeroed in about five shots at 100 yards and it hasn't lost zero for hundreds of rounds since. Before I bought this product I tried a cheaper red dot and as always, you get what you pay for. The Vortex VIP warranty is what ended up selling me on this product because I know this thing will last my entire lifetime, and if it doesn't, I know Vortex will replace it for me. My business will be going to Vortex every time from here on out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product with a great price I bought this for my wife's rifle. Fantastic red/green dot. I love how it comes with a magnifier, easy to install and remove. My only negative is it is quite tough to get the optic caps to close. I understand it's to keep moisture and debris out but I feel I'm going to lose zero for how much effort it takes to close them. Not sure if it's a defect or if they are supposed to be that tough. Overall, fantastic product, you could easily spend triple the price, but why would you when this product performs as well if not better than the higher priced brands. Along with the VIP warrenty, Vortex products are very hard to beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A high quality red dot I put the Strikefire on one of my ARs. It was very simple to install. I chose the red/green version just to have a different light if needed. Vortex suggest using a 50 yard line to set zero, but I used a 100 yard zero. The first 5 shots were outside the red. After dialing it in, the next 45 shots were in the red.I would've shot more, but ran out of time. My eyes did pick up the green dot much better than the red dot. For the price and quality of what the Strikefire is, I'm not sure if there is a better red dot out there. I will continue buying Vortex products

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Only Red Dot I Will Buy I bought my Strikefire 2 nearly a year ago to use on my AR as a defense setup. It was easy to zero and has very precise adjustments. Powering on is easy and instant. The brightness settings are simple to adjust and very helpful to quickly dim the dot in low light. Both red and green are very bright. The glass is clear and easy to protect thanks to the quality flip up lens covers that are included. I keep my AR fixed in my trunk next to a plate carrier and I have no doubt that this sight will work when I need it to. All this combined with the warranty vortex offers and the price makes me wonder why anyone would choose another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first REAL red dot I have purchased 3 cheap ( 25 dollars or under) red dots from the internet. The old saying is true. You get what you pay for. What was I thinking? This thing could save my life or someone's else's and I went cheap on the sight system. I did a lot of research and decided to purchase a Strikefire II. Very happy with my purchase. A world of difference between the cheapo red dots and my quality Vortex red dot. It has the features I wanted, easy to mount and east to use. I would recommend this red dot and will buy from Vortex again in the future. The best feature could be Vortexes warranty. If you don't know about the warranty you need to research it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Personally, I'd go with a different optic When I first put it on my rifle I had the excitement that I had something more than a cheap red dot on there. Once that wore off I realized that I was not really happy. This particular optic has a lot blocking the field of view (I do use both eyes.) The dot holds zero and has over thousands of rounds. The mount it came with is great and has never came loose. I can't get past all the stuff in the way of my field of view on this optic tho. My friend has the Sparc AR for a red dot and it is great. Looking back on the purchase if I had it to do over today with the sparc ar for a red dot. I would not be truly satisfied until I had the Strike Eagle 1-6x24 for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it After being pleased with my own Strikefire II red dot on my M4 clone, i chose to equip my organization's raffle AR with one. The height is perfect. Its easy to pick up your target. The multiple illumination levels are great. Easy to set up and easy to use. And quite frankly, it reminds me of what i carried in the Army. Vortex is a great supporter of veterans and we thank them for that. Jon Skubis is a great guy to work with and understands customer service as it should be. Keep up the great work guys!
