Vortex is dedicated to the development and production of unique optics with features that allow you to see the world more clearly. Their commitment to supporting efforts in the important areas of land conservation, wildlife and field habitat keep them in tune with the environment and outdoor enthusiasts worldwide.

Taking the sought after functionality of the red dot sight a few steps higher, the 1x30 StrikeFire Red Dot AR15 Riflescope delivers a powerful feature set at a competitive price point.

Providing the operator with unlimited eye-relief and the ability to employ a heads-up-both-eyes-open sighting technique, this StrikeFire is an excellent choice for handguns, tactical rifles, scout rifles, and shotguns.

The construction of the StrikeFire sight is robust, yet it sports a sleek profile. It was designed for rugged field use; it is shock, water, and fog proof.

This StrikeFire scope comes with an extra-high 30mm mounting ring for use with AR15 platform firearms.

A mounting base and rings are used to attach a riflescope to a firearm. A comfortable sight picture is contingent upon the height of the rings. A comfortable cheek-weld is the result of properly positioning the scope over the receiver. Mounting the scope close to the receiver is preferable, yet scopes with larger objectives need higher rings so the front bell can clear the barrel. It should be noted that in many mounting applications, a professional gunsmith's skills will be needed for proper installation.

      Comments about Vortex 1x30 StrikeFire Red Dot AR15 Riflescope (Matte Black):

      This red dot was easy to install, has some nice features, namely a selector for red or green dot in varying brightness, a night mode and x, y adjustments for fine tuning your zero. My only complaint so far is that at the highest brightness setting, my dot is more of a oblong shape than a dot making it somewhat difficult to quickly determine dead center in a snap, but all in all it seems pretty solid.

            Great red/green dot scope for the money. I would have given it 5 stars but if you compare it to an Aimpoint or Trijicon it's close but not 5 stars.

                    For the price you simply can not beat this red dot. The construction is solid and mounting ring is ridged. It comes with the battery and all hex drivers you need to install. The only complain I have is there is some light flare on the dot, but I'll get over it. You won't touch anything comparable for less than $400-$500.

                      This red dot is good for the money. It was very easy to sight in and has held zero for 300 rounds that I've shot. It powers down by itself and came with the 2x magnifier. I have no complaints about it and completely recommend it to anyone.

                        This scope is good enough for me to buy two. I first bought mine and have three kills already!Just bought one for my son for Christmas.
                        Keep in mind,I am in Law Enforcement I put more rounds through my rifle than the average guy. Scope staying at zero with no problem.Lense covers not the best but they work.

                              For the price you get everything an Aimpoint but at much less. I was looking for a quality, yet inexpensive red dot sight that would be easily mounted on my AR-15 flat-top. For the price, and the fact that it includes the mounting ring, the Strikefire would be hard to beat. It was easy to mount, easy to zero. It's obviously better quality than the sub-$100 red-dot sights. The option to turn the reticle into red or green is definetly a plus as well as being able to adjust the brightness.

                                There are a lot of RED DOT sights out there to choose from...the reason you should choose Vortex is quality and value meet function. The dot is bright and the scope mounts perfectly on your rifle. Stop looking and buy already.

                                  Easy turnkey installation since it comes with the mounting rings. Works great for the 100-200 yard ranges that I typically shoot at. Lens dust covers work, but are kind of hard to seat over lens.

                                    First, BH best there is to do business with, first rate all the way. Love the Strikefire, on a new Colt LE6920MP. Dead on accuracy, doesn't lose zero, and an absolute 100% cowitness with my MagPul flip up rear sight. Used other a lot higher in price- will keep this one!

                                      Put it on a 9mm carbine, laser bore sighted it and was shooting bullseye's. Looks feels and acts like you paid the extra money for an Aimpoint. Now Aimpoint has it "slightly" beat in most areas as far as features, but for the dollars you can't beat it! And with the money you saved you could buy a back up strikefire and have money leftover for lunch.

                                          I use this sight on a Smith & Wesson M&P. It works great with the facotry Iron Sights. The Sight is fantastic quality and its very user friendly. I have several other Vortex Products and this Sight continues to remind me why I buy from this company. I highly recommend this sight, and was recommended it by someone else who had one before me. I have an Eotech I use on another AR and I prefer this sight to my Eotech.

                                                I recently purchased a new rifle for use on duty (I'm a Police Officer). I started looking at reflex sights & saw a video review on Youtube (nutnfancy) on the Vortex Strikefire. After more research I came to the conclusion that the Vortex Strikefire inexpensive, not cheap. I ordered & installed it (pretty simple). After I zeroed it I qualified with my new rifle. Awesome!
