When shooters demand the quick-handling characteristics of a red dot, but suffer starburst effects in red dots from common astigmatism, the Spitfire AR is the perfect choice. The glass-etched DRT (Dual Ring Tactical) reticle can be used with or without the red/green illumination like a traditional riflescope, and makes target and reticle acquisition in close-quarters a snap. Unique to the Spitfire AR, an included 5.56 BDC turret allows shooters to dial popular AR-15 configurations to 700 yards—perfect for limited division 3-Gun competitors or range-goers who wish to engage targets from point blank to extended range.
Battery Life: Up to 250 hours on highest setting. Up to 3,000 hours on lowest setting.
Prism Scopes are not compatible with the Micro6x, Micro3X or VMX-3T Magnifier.
The DRT (Dual Ring Tactical) reticle is designed for rapid shooting at close distances. The dual ring design pulls the eye into instant alignment with the reticle center and target. Etched directly on the prism to assure consistent point-of-aim at all times with selectable red/green illumination of five intensity levels to match specific conditions.

This is it baby!I bought the Vortex Spitfire AR to replace, well everything else I have had in a red dot. My Eotech, Meprolight, Aimpoint and Leupold Firedot, all flared up in my vision. As I got older the red dots got less defined and at 100 yards are larger than my target. The Spitfire AR is sharp, quick to acquire and has all the features I've been looking for. The only thing that could make it better is a motion on activator. As for tactical use, the reticle can be seen from both ends of the optic. But unless I plan to do battle, this is not an issue for me. The Spitfire AR has also been a hit at my gun club. Thanks guys for making a dot us older shooters can enjoy.

Quality at it's finestWhen I went to visit my local shop that's a Vortex dealer, I was in the market for a sight to put on my 9mm AR carbine. I have mainly Vortex optics in my collection of optics, and I'll have to say this one is high quality. everything about it seems that it will be able to withstand what ever you try throwing at it. my favorite part about this is the reticles are engraved in the glass so if your batteries were to die you can still acquire your targets. That shouldn't be a problem though because the Spitfire uses a single AAA battery instead of one of them expensive short lasting 3V batteries. Great sight for any AR build. Buy it and you won't be disappointed.

Couldn't be more satisfied.So for starters, the lens is ridiculously clear. You accidentally bump your rifle or drop it? Your zero is staying exactly where it was. It's definitely durable. Love how if the battery dies(should last you a long time), you'll still have a black reticle because it's etched in the glass. It won't fog up on you like those cheap brands. Really easy to zero. You get exactly what you pay for when you buy a Vortex optic... quality and durability yet very reasonably priced. Stop wasting your money on those expensive name brands when you can pay less and get the same quality. Thinking about buying one? Pull the trigger already. You won't regret it one bit.
