What a great optic

by Gun Dog, from United States, WV Written on April 10, 2015
I don't know how Vortex does it but the optics are just exceptional for the cost. I have other optics that are far more costly from manufacturers that are known and rated the best in the industry. This optic is right up there with all of them AND it has a lifetime warranty. Crystal clear is one thing but the etched optic lense works well in green or red...I don't know which I like the best. Quick shipping from Optics Planet and some super deals. Love this scope on my Windham AR 15 5.56...
Pros:
  • Clear optics
  • lifetime warranty
  • Green or Red
Cons:
  • none... yet
Best Used for:
  • AR 15 M4/M16
Would recommend: Yes

Good optic for a great price price.

by Dylan, from United States, OR Written on March 9, 2015
I wanted an optic that could preform decently in close range situations and decently in medium range situations. This optic fit all of that. Eye relief is a bit close but something you'll quickly get use to. Bottom line is this optic is well built offers a decent range combat flexibility and has a great warranty. I would definitely recommend picking one of these up!...

First Illuminated scope

by KT, from United States, CA Written on February 27, 2015
reticle are clearly visible even off, required #4 or #5 on a bright day, eye relief could be better, like closer to 4in., great value for the price, more than enough magnification for standard 100 yards target shooting, etc....
Pros:
  • reticle very clear even when off
Cons:
  • eye relief could be better, like closer to 4in.
Best Used for:
  • Target/Varmint
Would recommend: Yes

Superb optic quality

by JC, from United States, CO Written on January 21, 2015
I picked up the Prism EBR to use on a SBR .300BLK build.
Very impressed as always with the quality of vortex glass and function (not to mention the lifetime warranty!).

Only reason for 4/5 stars is the downside of this model is a lack of eye relief, so the optic needs to be mounted farther to the rear of the upper. Basically with your nose indexing the charging handle, you'll have a perfect view.
The reticle is clear and crisp, in either red or green.

Well worth the purchase. In my opinion, closest sight to an ACOG without the price tag....

Great optic

by Darius, from Luxembourg, Hesperange Written on January 17, 2015
This is a great optic for sports and recreational shooters and hunters who do not need an optic built like a tank such as the ACOG. The glass is very clear for this price range. What I like the most is the reticle: the horseshoe can be used for close targets and the relatively fine cross hairs for longer distance shots....
Pros:
  • clear glass
  • great reticle for CQB and long distance shots
  • two mounting heights thanks to the riser
Cons:
  • does not come with QD lever mount
  • reticle in hundreds of yards not meters
Best Used for:
  • hunting
  • recreational shooting
Would recommend: Yes

Vortex 3x Spitfire Illuminated Reticle -- Best Deal for Price

by Falcon195, from United States, CA Written on January 16, 2015
Have received and fired my new Vortex 3x prism illuminated reticle scope and could not be happier. The lens are bright and clear, and the reticle is razor sharp and easily seen day or night. Should the battery go dead a black reticle is clearly seen. Eye relief is a generous 2.8 inches and makes for a comfortable and stable cheek weld (the ACOG has a 1.9 inch eye relief). Unlike traditional elongated scopes, the prism system enables a compact form factor that looks great on the ar15 receiver. The scope appears very sturdy and solidly made with a pleasing look and finish. The knobs turn stiffly with firm clicks. No nonsense fine metal cables and clamps allow the towers caps to be easily removed while keeping them from being lost. The integral scope and mount design eliminates the need for separate scope rings making for a stronger system and reduced cost. Even the spring loaded lens caps are well made and have convenient finger tabs at 4 and 8 o'clock that enable them to be flicked open with pleasing precision. The 349-dollar before incentives price combined with the outstanding Vortex lifetime defect and accidental damage warranty makes the Vortex 3x prism scope a memorial feel good purchase for which one can always be thankful....
Pros:
  • All good
Cons:
  • None
Best Used for:
  • all but the most rugged applications
Would recommend: Yes

Vortex Spitfire

by ebomey, from United States, MN Written on January 9, 2015
The quality is great. I would say it's like a poor mans ACOG!
If you are going to put this on a AR pistol or something small your only concern will be that it does have a little weight to it, but if you can get around that you will be very impressed with Spitfire!...

Vortex Spitfire 3x Prism Scope

by Alan, from United States, CA Written on January 7, 2015
Excellent optic because the prism is etched there is no halo.
It is great for individuals like myself with an astigmatism that have a halo with the standard red dot sights. I am 60 years old and the 3x is extremely helpful...
