Overview

Ready to handle any environment, the SPARC AR features bomb-proof-like construction with a compact and lightweight form-factor. The 2 MOA dot is as easy as point and shoot—it’s quick to acquire in close-quarters scenarios, but fine enough to promote pin-point accuracy at extended ranges. A unique, integrated base is hassle-free for any AR or similar platform. For excellent, reliable performance and loads of user-friendly features, look no further than the SPARC AR. Includes a spacer shim that can be utilized to provide two different mounting heights: lower 1/3 co-witness (40 mm) & absolute co-witness (37 mm).

Battery Life: Up to 300 hours on highest setting. Up to 5,000 hours on lowest setting.

The VMX-3T Magnifier is not recommended for use with the SPARC AR.

Features

OPTICAL FEATURES

Fully Multi-Coated Increase light transmission with multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces.
Unlimited Eye Relief Non-critical eye relief for rapid target acquisition
Parallax Free All red dot and holographic sights will exhibit some small amount of parallax. Matching current industry practice, this small amount would be considered "parallax free" and will make a negligible difference in performance.

CONSTRUCTION FEATURES

Single-Piece Chassis Compact and lightweight.
Waterproof O-ring seals prevent moisture, dust and debris from penetrating for reliable performance in all environments.
Shockproof Rugged construction withstands recoil and impact.
Hard Anodized Finish Highly durable hard-coat anodization provides a low-glare matte surface and helps camouflage the shooter's position.

Reticle

DAYLIGHT BRIGHT RED DOT

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for varmint rifle I bought this for sale at Woods n Water after my first choice, the Strikefire, was sold out. My AR is built for quick shots on hogs, coyotes and other undesirable animals. This optic is great for that. It was also accurate enough for 150 yard shots. My only complaint is that the lense caps don't pop open, but have to be locked together. This is more of a inconvenience than an actual problem, so still 5 stars. The "glob" people complain about doesn't take up hardly any of the sight picture and is there for some reason, so it doesn't bother me. It takes AAA batteries, which is great. Great optic

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Run this on my work rifle The original Sparc was my first Vortex product and the Sparc AR was a great upgrade to it. I've been running this optic on my work rifle for years and it has stood up very well. I've been in torrential downpours for hours and never seen any fogging or water inside the optic. It's received a beating in takedowns, entries, and in training and has always held zero. I've seen some reviews about the LED housing blocking the view, but I've never noticed it at all. The fact that it takes readily available AAA batteries is a deal maker! The price point also makes it hugely attractive to the average buyer. I currently have 3 or 4 on miscellaneous rifles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HOLY QUICK ACQUISITION BATMAN This thing is insane for going target to target. Nice vivid dot shows in any condition. It takes a AAA battery so its easy to change and convenient no need for silly button batteries or 123a's. It has a rubberized coating that cleans up nice with just a tad of oil. The lens covers snap together to stay up and out of the way but can easily be put back on quickly. I bought this and place it on my Kriss Vector and it is incredible. First outting took about 3 shots to Zero then rest was history. I have already sent close to 400rds down range and it hasn't moved a tad off of Zero.
