Great Deal

by Apollo, from United States, MI Written on December 11, 2014
So far the sight has held up well. Everything about the sight is easy to use and easy to mount. The only negative as of yet is that the red dot is not a perfect dot. It bursts down and left. I have heard talk that this is not a sight issue, but a stigmatism of the eye. I would have to disagree. I tried both eyes with the same result in the same spot. I also asked several other people to do the same with the same result (burst down and left). Plus i have had no problems, with trijicon red dots.

So if you're on a budget and looking for a quality product and can handle a sight that may not get you a perfect dot, this is the one....
Pros:
  • ease of use and install
  • budget friendly
Cons:
  • red dot is not perfect
Would recommend: Yes

Quality at a great price

by Hindsite, from United States, CA Written on December 10, 2014
My review might be a bit biased. But here goes:

I purchased a brand new S&W AR15. It came with the magpul pop up sites. I put this thing on it... and it's lined up with my sites right away. I didn't touch anything because they both could have been off. I was going to wait till i get to the range to zero everything in. First round through the AR using the sight and I hit my target at 100yrds. it was like it was perfectly made for each other. The 2 MOA is perfect for me. There are 10 grades of brightness... which is probably more than I need... but I'll take it. I really like that the battery and adjustment caps have a cable that holds them onto the sight and doesn't get in the way.

The construction seems absolutely solid. I wouldn't throw it on concrete..... but I don't think think that would hurt it too much.

It's design, function, and utility are amazing. The glass is supper clear. It's almost like there's nothing there. And then... all the sudden... you see a red dot. I'm going to get another one for one of my other pieces. I may actually get the magnifier as well for the long range shots. Thank you Vortex for being awesome....
Pros:
  • Accurate
  • rugged construction
  • Solid mount
  • Clarity is great
  • Looks sharp
Cons:
  • none... yet
Best Used for:
  • Range
  • close to mid range shooting
Would recommend: Yes

Great red dot for the price

by AtlRye, from United States, WA Written on November 17, 2014
Same as v1 with some improvement. This is a GREAT little red dot for the price. Holds zero, easy to adjust, small, aimpoint compatible when it comes to mounts. With v2, batteries used are the 2032s which are easier to find. Another improvement is the way the unit is powered on/off. Last improvement is the addition of pop up caps as opposed to the old rubber covers....
Pros:
  • Qualtiy
  • Price,
  • easy to zero and to operate
Cons:
  • None
Would recommend: Yes

Amazing Product

by Brian G., from United States, CA Written on October 31, 2014
This product is on point with aimpoint t1, etc. The dot is clear (if you do not have an astigmatism) and small (2moa) and the price cant be beat! I would use Optics Planet again for sure! Shipping was fast and on time, the woman who helped me on the phone was also amazing!...
Pros:
  • Lightweight
  • Small
Cons:
  • None
Would recommend: Yes

Not perfect, but not bad

by Ryan, from United States, TX Written on October 24, 2014
This sight works. I had issues with the mount not allowing the clamping piece to move. I had to break out the files and sandpaper in order to get it to tighten it to the rail. Not exactly what I want to have to do to a brand new item of this price. Once I got it mounted and took it out I was happy with the performance. Over the long run I think this red dot will be well worth the price that I paid....
Pros:
  • Price
  • Lightweight
  • Quality
Cons:
  • None
Best Used for:
  • plinking
  • squirrels
  • fun
Would recommend: Yes

You don't always get what you pay for. Sometimes you get more!

by William Comeaux, from United States, TX Written on October 21, 2014
This is my second SPARC and my 5th Vortex product. I am sold on this brand. Don't let the price fool you. I trust this brand enough thathave the original SPARC on my patrol rifle. Why pay 3 times the amount for something that will not perform any better. The unconditional warranty is also impossible to beat by competitors. I'm already thinking about another SPARC for my 357 revolver....
Pros:
  • Price
  • Quality
  • Ruggedness
  • unconditional warranty
Cons:
  • None
Would recommend: Yes

Sparc II RED DOT

by Blackandgold, from United States, GA Written on October 16, 2014
Great little red dot. Like the compact size but you do sacrifice field of view. Haven't had a chance to shoot with it yet but I am not anticipating any issues given all the other great reviews. Comes with in my opinion an unmatched warranty from vortex. I am thinking of buying vortex's magnifier to use along with it....
Pros:
  • Warranty
  • Size, Weight, Fit-n-Finish
  • price, was on sale
Cons:
  • field of view
Would recommend: Yes

Vortex SPARC II Red Dot Sight

by Lewis, from United States, GA Written on October 14, 2014
I am very pleased with my Vortex SPARC II Red Dot Sight. Target acquisition is so much quicker than the scope I had on my Ruger .41 mag revolver. I recommend this product based on its performance, price and quality....

Solid red dot.

by Longbow, from United States, KS Written on October 13, 2014
This is a very solid scope regardless of price. The 3 different mount levels are very handy of you want to use it on several weapons. Easy to zero and seems to hold it well. I put it on an FN PS90 and shot a sub 1 inch, 5 shot group after only a few attempts. The lowest mount setting was perfect for the PS 90. It has easy to adjust brightness and the glass is clear. Feels very sturdy except the lens caps which come off somewhat easy. I will be interested to see how it holds up long term....
Pros:
  • solid construction
  • Three mounting shims.
  • Clear dot and glass.
Cons:
  • None
Best Used for:
  • Any short to medium range weapon
  • Shotgun
Would recommend: Yes

Great product.

by Diego, from United States, CA Written on October 10, 2014
This has been a great sight so far. I own 2 Aimpoints (through Optics Planet) but wasn't looking for a huge investment in a another red dot purchase. Tried the Bushnell TRS-25, it broke after 25 rounds of 7.62. I'm so disappointed in that one that I won't even spend the $10 to get it fixed. Then tried the Vortex SPARC II, no problems after about 150 rounds of .223. Sight seems very durable, it's easy to use, the riser is adjustable and adequate. Only drawback so far is that you can see some red dot when it is pointed at you- it would be visible in the dark, the Aimpoint gives off no forward illumination. Otherwise seems very comparable to an Aimpoint. The lens covers are a joke, I don't use them and don't really need them. For $189-$194 this is a great deal, I'm buying a 2nd one....
