decent red dot sight

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 29, 2013
if you are looking at this rds its probably because you want to save some money, this rds is a good option for target, hunting and home defense, i would not recommend it for professional every day use, bottom line is that you can save money and still have a decent quality rds
Pros: decent quality
Cons: none...

Good Sight for the Price

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NJ Written on November 14, 2012
With the understanding that one cannot expect $500-quality for $170, you will not be disappointed with this sight. It is easy to use and is bright on both the red and the green settings. The only negatives so far are the lens covers, magnifier, and the reticle. The flip-up lens covers are junk, just throw them out. My magnifier will not focus. The eyepiece just spins without adjusting the lense. The reticle is quite large. At 50 yards, it covers a good 4-inch circle. At 100 yards, it covers the entire 9 ring.
Pros: Affordability, full function, red & green dot
Cons: Large dot, somewhat blurry dot, lens caps are junk, 2X magnifier does not focus. ...
Would recommend: Yes

1st try at a red dot sight

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on October 27, 2012
Coming from nothing but traditional scopes, this scope was easy to mount on my rail system. The dot doesn't appear to be perfectly round but I've only used it in one shooting session. That was to sight it in. Otherwise the optics are clear and in bright light and look like they will be everything that I read about it. After forty rounds with a 308, I'm happy.
Pros: Easy to set up and sight in. Good quality glass and components.
Cons: I felt the lens caps could be a little easier to snap in place but it is probably a matter of getting used to warping them a little when closing....

I miss it when I go back to iron sights

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, DC Written on August 24, 2012
Went red dot route instead of LER scout scope. Can't beat the quick target aquisition. Be sure to get the green dot option; I think it is more visible in more situations than the red. Since you don't really have to fiddle with the controls that much when using the scope, the buttons could be simpler and less obtrusive in design.
Pros: Green option
Cons: Controls not streamlined...
Would recommend: Yes

Vortex StrikeFire on New 10/22 Takedown

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, AZ Written on August 22, 2012
I needed to improve on the open sights that came on the Ruger Takedown. I bought the Vortex based off other reviews and its warranty. I could not be happier, easy to set up with its one ring mount (don't forget the blue locktite on the 10/22 weaver mount). I have only been able to shoot indoors to set the dot so I am now set two inches high at 75 feet. Out of the box it was shooting two inches to the right and four inches high. I used both red and green dots on the smallest setting and was able to keep my groups at one inch from a rest. By far this was the best price I found and the online followup was great, I will definitely use Optics Planet again.
Pros: Simple set up, easy to adjust for use
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes

Best little Red Dot

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on July 9, 2012
Only GOOD NEWS! I have bought 6 of them so far. They are a go to Red Dot. Every time a buy a new gun. I start by testing it out with one of the Vortex through out it's brake in cycle. I have never had to change a battery yet in a year. Good indoors and out.
Pros: bright, good size, good weight, good battery life
Cons: none yet!...

Down Range

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on June 21, 2012
I found this sight easy to use and to sight in. I mounted this scope on an old model ranch rifle, backed up with a ghost sight, can't go wrong! For the money, you probably won't find a comparable scope, I did a lot of research before I purchased.
Pros: cost, functionality, features
Cons: none for me...
Would recommend: Yes

Vortex StrikeFire Red dot scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on June 11, 2012
This is the scope to get if you do not want to pay the exorbitant price of an Aimpoint. It is just as accurate, just as tough, and the quality is just as good. It runs off of a standard CR-2 battery. I own three of these and I am totally satisfied by this scope. Go vortex.
Pros: Execellent value for the price
Cons: On/Off button is not protected and unit turns on all the time....
Would recommend: Yes
