Great Optic

by Rob, from United States, NV Written on March 23, 2015
I mounted this on a 8.5" AR Pistol Chambered in 300 Blackout and I could not be happier. The Sparc comes with a few risers, I found that the largest riser gives not only great eye relief, but also allows the sight to co-witness with my MBUS. I was very pleased. Since my irons were already zero'd, I just adjusted the red dot to the same aim point.

This is a great optic for anyone not wanting to pay outlandish prices. I've actually grown to enjoy it more than my eotech. and I would place it right up there with my aim point....

Good when used alone - average in combo

by dski, from United States, UT Written on March 16, 2015
Didn't like it in conjunction with the 3X Vortex multiplier but was good standalone. Don't think it is really any better than the bushnell except caps make it nicer to close up and you are buying the vortex warranty. Ended up sending back because not great in combo like I was hoping it to be.

So - recommend if using alone and close on rail. Do not recommend over a bushnell or even walther ps22 for basic red dot. Would spend the extra and go to the Viper PST or Eotech depending on use case...

worth every penny

by JD, from United States, CA Written on March 5, 2015
As a consumer, I have purchased numerous firearm products that I come to regret ever buying. Not the SPARC II. This product is everything as advertised. I will be purchasing another one soon. The shipment was very quick also....
Pros:
  • Price and Quality.
Cons:
  • None.

Great product for the money

by Stephen, from United States, MI Written on March 3, 2015
The red dot is a bit starburst, but the glass is clear and it comes with several mounting height options. Its a great little optic for the price. its lightweight and serves its purpose well. Also included are very detailed mounting, set up, and use instructions to get you started. I would buy another, and probably will be sooner then later....
Pros:
  • Lightweight
  • easy to use
  • Looks good
Cons:
  • Starburst effect
Best Used for:
  • Red dot on a budget
Would recommend: Yes

Aimpoint? Acog?

by Carmelo, from United States, AZ Written on February 25, 2015
Great optic, so far surpassed all my expectations and I'm not broke. I ordered the SPARC instead of the Aimpoint Patrol, at half the price.... Only makes sense. I used the Pro at work and so far this little optic has which is half the price has the same or more quality than the Pro....

SPARC II, Love it

by frank h, from United States, KS Written on February 21, 2015
I just recently bought the SPARC II red dot by VORTEX. It is priced just right and it is a micro red dot. Quality is great and its seems to be up to mil-spec at the least. You really can't beat it for the price, brand name and quality. The dot is very crisp and accurate....
Pros:
  • Quality
  • Micro red dot
Cons:
  • None
Best Used for:
  • CQC
Would recommend: Yes

No faith in Vortex red dots

by Hawkeye1020, from United States, VA Written on February 16, 2015
I bought this after deciding I wasn't going to spend a few hundred dollars on an Aimpoint and I already have a Vortex Spitfire and absolutely love it. After Vortex provided me with such a great optic in the Spitfire, I thought I'd give the Sparc II a shot. After receiving the red dot, I was very impressed with the packaging as I was with the Spitfire. The different mounting height options are an extreme plus. I tried it every which way on my .300 Blackout and the versatility of cowitnessing was great. Everything was great until I powered up the Sparc II and had a starburst that pushed the 2 MOA dot to probably a 6 or 7 MOA and "leaked" towards the 2 o'clock position. After reading some reviews to see what other people had said with it also being clear while cowitnessing. I do not have astigmatism, I was recently checked at the optometrist, so that was not the case. In addition, reviewers were saying that it is much better once you get to shoot it outdoors. So I took it out to shoot, not expecting anything better because inside vs outside shouldn't be much different. I shot two mags through my AR and still no change in quality. That was my breaking point and I boxed it back up, submitted my return slip for a prepaid shipping label and off it went. Very dissatisfied with a product from a company that I was very impressed with on the Spitfire. I plan on leaving only prism optics to Vortex and I'll search elsewhere for red dots....
Pros:
  • rugged design
  • Mounting options
Cons:
  • Starburst effect
Best Used for:
  • Non-precision airsoft

BEST OPTIC I OWN

by GPDLEO, from United States, TX Written on February 6, 2015
I am a police officer in Galveston Texas, and the climate I work in can be very detrimental to equipment. The Sparc 2 handles everything I can throw at it and then some. I just completed a 2 day patrol rifle class where we shot over 500 rds and the optic worked flawlessly. The battery life is excellent and getting it zeroed was a breeze. What impressed me the most was how well it held zero after running and gunning with it for two days. I was hitting balon in high wind at 100 yards with ease. Also in cqb ranges it was extremely helpful in getting rounds on target quickly and I greatly improved my shot splits. I have owned eotech in the past and for the value and price as well as battery life this beat my eotech hands down. You can not go wrong with this optic....

Save your money!

by Disappointed, from United States, TN Written on February 5, 2015
I thought this would be a good option for an entry level red dot sight. Wrong! It looks good out of the box, and comes with good features, but that's all I can say is good about it. I first bought a SPARC, sent it back because the dot looked like a bullet hole in broken glass. Some of the lines went almost to the edge of the glass. A couple weeks go by before the replacement comes in and I get the SPARC 2. It's as bad as the first one. I called Vortex again, they told me it was my eyes. Not doubting eyes can be a factor, but I've had at least twenty people check out both of these scopes and every single one saw the exact same thing as me. Some of them even brought other brand scopes in for me to look at, and every one was clearly a dot, not a starburst. Now Vortex has pushed me off to another rep that is also telling me about the eyes. They sent me info from another manufacturer's websight that says to roll the scope as you look through it and see if it changes. Did it, same results,looks like a spinning starburst. The lines don't change at all, they just spin.
If I can ever get my money back, I'm going to buy one of the American made red dots, not this cheap chinese junk....

Great Value!

by Zdaddy, from United States, NC Written on February 5, 2015
I spent a great deal of time researching red dot optics and a great deal of independent testing as well as individuals on forums kept giving this unit high marks. I finally proceeded with my purchase and think that it was a superb purchase! From all the variable mount options to the simplicity oz sighting the optic it is a A+ product. The only thing I can criticize are the flip up covers. The operated as described but are easily knocked off or displaced. I will be making this identical purchase again for another rifle in the next couple weeks!...
Pros:
  • Easy mounting
  • easy to zero and to operate
  • Well Built and Solid
Cons:
  • None
Would recommend: Yes
