Optimize the versatility and quick-handling attributes of your AR with the redesigned Strike Eagle. A true 1x on the low end, Strike Eagle zooms to let shooters rapidly engage targets near and far, and an AR-BDC3 reticle aids in rapid shooting while providing holdover and ranging references from 0-600 yards. Plus, with a thread-in throw lever, you’ll be on target even faster, shot after shot.

The illuminated, glass-etched AR-BDC3 is specifically tuned to the ballistic performance of common 5.56 loads out of an AR-15. The 1 MOA center dot provides a precise point of aim while the surrounding 16.625 MOA broken circle gets your eye into the center faster for rapid target acquisition, and the BDC keeps you on target out to 650 yards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prefect SASS rifle scope Just got this in the mail. Being a newer model had been told it be 6-8 weeks. Nope 3 weeks and in my hot little hands. mounted it in a Larue 7.62, 16". It is always my fall back rifle/ truck gun / teaching rifle and SHIF rifle. Had another brand 1-8x on it but the weight savings for the Vortex is nearly 1lb. This weight reduction has made the rifle AR15 quick . Plus I've not found it wanting in clarity or quality. I've engaged target to 600yards with ease.would make a great 3 gun Heavy scope. If your looking for a great scope that doesn't break the bank or turns you rifle into a 2"x 4" check this one out. Plus with the banging around the rifle / scope combo gets, the life time warranty is great peace of mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Value I just got Myself an AR Pistol that needed some glass and was torn between the Spitfire 3x prism and the StrikeEagle and I'm really glad i went with the Eagle. The true 1x is the closest ive seen in any of the LPVOs ive checked out , the image is clear and crisp without the color distortion you get from a lot of the other guys and the reticle is phenomenal. Took her out to the range the other day and was ringing steel up close and out to 200 yds no problem. So far the Strike Eagle has been and done everything i could ask out of a short to medium range optic and i couldn't be happier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex nailed it! In my opinion, the Strike Eagle has been the LPVO Aquiles knee for Vortex. They were fine, but other brands could offer more for the same money. Not anymore. This new generation is really something else. Optical quality is on par with the most known competitor brands out there. Very very nice. It’s ok at low light. On this price range, I was expecting a lower quality image at 8 power. It’s good quality, clear and crisp. 1 power is a true 1 power, very fast, and with an eye box and eye relief very generous. The provided arm for the magnification well is perfect. It function as it should, and it doesn’t fell cheap. Nothing fells cheap on this optic. Reticle... The reticle is FINALLY something that will compete with the ACSS. I own 2 optics with the ACSS and I really like them, but this reticle has been growing on me to a point where I think I like this more now. A reticle makes or breaks an optic, and in this case, it does makes it! Very easy to use, accurate, light on the eye and full of useful information. Really like it! Only downside is the illumination. Yes, I know in this price point it’s not meant to be daylight bright. But even thought, it should be brighter.
