The 3x Spitfire Dual-Illumination Riflescope from Vortex Optics is designed for use with the AR platform and it's specific ballistic characteristics. It uses a prism-based optical system with anti-reflective fully multicoated optics to provide a reliable sight, without taking up valuable rail space. With its 3x magnification this optic is ideal for medium to long-range use. Dual Picatinny rails, set at 45° on the upper forward half, are perfect for attaching a reflex sight or illuminator. The housing is nitrogen-filled and o-ring sealed for water and fogproof performance in all weather conditions.

The EBR-556B Enhanced Battle Reticle features a ballistic-drop compensation (BDC) configuration designed around the 5.56x45 (.223 Remington) cartridge using a 55 grain round and 16" barrel. The central crosshair is meant to be zeroed at 100 yd and is effective to 200 yd. BDC stadia on the lower vertical axis provide holdover reference points from 300 to 500 yd in one hundred yard increments. The reticle can be illuminated in either red or green, depending on the situation and preference. Each color has five selectable brightness levels, with an 'off' position between each level to quickly return to a preferred brightness without having to cycle through them all.

      Comments about Vortex 3x Spitfire Dual-Illumination Riflescope (EBR-556B Reticle):

      I own the Vortex strikefire. I have a slight astigmatism so on high power I get the double comet effect,I do like the strike fire its solid yet light weight. The spitfire prism glass rocks for my eye because the comet effect is almost non existent. The x3 power and the etched reticle are great for lining up the pins! nice on my DPMS oracle build. My AR friends liked it a lot. The price on this site rocks! it is heavier than strike fire not a con to me.
