    I have looked for three months for the right optics for my Daniel Defense 300 blk and finally chose the Vortex brand for the value, quality and versatility. I am buying the quick release from A.R.M.S. to mount both the Sparc 2 and the 3x magnifier. This gives me the option of quickly removing the magnifier for days that I know I am strictly short range hunting or carry both on the rifle for those tree stand days or open areas that I might need to bring the target closer. I looked at 1-4 variable scopes and 1-6 but I think this combo is the best all around option. I am very pleased with Vortex and I think this is the best bang for the buck setup.

    Great red dot

    By Sutherland

    from Washington

    Comments about Vortex 1x22 SPARC II Bright Red Dot Sight:

    As others before me I don't have a bad thing to say about this red dot. It's bright and clear. I have mine mounted to my mini-30 with a wigga-tiny rail and it works great.

    Comments about Vortex 1x22 SPARC II Bright Red Dot Sight:

    This red dot is worth every penny. I was at the range with someone who owns a red dot costing 4x the price of this one and they even liked this one better. Clear and accurate.

        Comments about Vortex 1x22 SPARC II Bright Red Dot Sight:

        Good instructions and easy to mount. Mounted it Co-witness with my sights on a Sig 516. Was within 2 inches at the range. Dialed it in easily. My only comment would be that the the dot is not very precise--seems to be kind like a ragged little star. Its a small star, and works great for rapid target acquisition and firing. I'm probably being nit picky here.

        I would definitely buy this product again.

          B&H ALWAYS DELIVERS GOOD PRODUCTS, REASONABLE PRICING, GOOD SHIPPING TIMES. THIS PRODUCT WAS NO EXCEPTION. I PUT THE SPARC II ON MY AR-15 AND WENT TO ZERO AT RANGE. AFTER A FEW SHOT GROUPS I HAD IT ZERO'D. MINIMAL EFFORT IN THE PROCESS. RUGGED AND WELL MADE. GOOD PRICE POINT. NO REAL NEGATIVES TO COMMENT AT THIS POINT.

            Comments about Vortex 1x22 SPARC II Bright Red Dot Sight:

            Received the sight a few days ago in perfect order. Well done B&H!Went to the range today after mounting the unit on a CX4 Storm, 9mm. Was on paper at 25 yards with the factory settings. Sighted it for 75 yards with minimal fuss.Even though it is CHICOM, it appears to be good kit. I wear corrective lenses, and the dot appeared fragmented and pixelated while wearing my glasses, yet was sharp and defined without.I really like this sight, the dot is bright at the 4th setting facing the morning sun. Once sighted in, it remained spot on after firing around 300 rounds of both factory Federal 115 and my handloads (5.2 grains Autocomp under 124gr jacketed hp). The only negative was that the front lens cover popped off while shooting. Not a big deal, but it should not have happened.All in all, very pleased.

                        If you need a red dot and don't want to drop 4 or 5 hundred this is your purchase. Very easy to sight in and works like a champ. The only flaw is that the lens covers tend to fall off if not really tightened on the sight body. Would not hesitate to buy this again.

                          I purchased the SPARC II based upon my first Vortex Optics scope...Viper PST and I'm stoked to say that it lives up to the quality I expect. Everything about this unit, the specs, materials, construction and attention to detail is what you would expect from scopes costing twice as much or more. This baby is going on my Aresnal 7R AK-47 utilizing the lowest mounting option. ! I'M A CONVERT, A VERY BIG FAN of Vortex Optics!
