Rock solid. Holds zero.
I've had min for over a year with no complaints. I run it on my 8.5" 300 pistol which travels frequently getting knocked around a lot. I don't baby my AR's and the Spitfire holds up. And who the heck needs qd mounts? Build another upper and bolt on a new optic. 5 stars for what it is designed to do.

Glass and reticle are crisp and clear!
I have been using ACOG 4x32 LED with my LMT piston AR and decided to try something with 1x for my new Springfield Saint AR pistol. Because of astigmatism, I can’t use anything with projection/reflection design. I had used ACOG in the army with chevron for 10 plus years and always loved how sharp and clearly defined the reticle is. After researching, I narrowed it down to vortex Spitfire and Burris AR-1X. I like Spitfire’s clean reticle, Burris’s retile is too busy and the hold for 400m, 500m, 600, are just not defined (empty spaces with two harsh marks on the two sides). Also the reputation of Vortex’s customer service set an industry standard. Glad I picked the Spitfire. It is relatively compact and lightweight, the build quality is way beyond its price point. The image is very crisp and clear with outstanding contrast, better than Aimpoint COMPM4, but not as good as my ACOG 4x32, of course ACOG cost 5 times as much. There are some slightly image distortions but not enough to bother me as an aiming device. Most importantly, the spitfire’s glasses does not have any annoying color tint that is found in almost all other red dots Aimpoint included. Now the best part is the retile, looking through my astigmatism eyes, it is sharply defined, as sharp as my ACOG, the thickness of the outlines just perfect, easy to locate but not to cover the field of view, the outer ring in the Burris AR-1X is little too thick by comparison. The design engineers at Vortex did their homework well. In addition, Vortex includes a replaceable 5.56mm BDC turret cap and flip-up lens caps for free, a nice touch.

Con: Spitfire’s hardwares are high quality but I really wish the mounting screws are thumb screws so I can take it off in the field without a tool, it is just me, other people may disagree but I understand, the current mounting method is more secure then thumb screws.

Overall, the Spitfire is a really well designed product; I will be proudly using it side by side with my ACOG that cost 5 times more.

A few days ago I bought a Vortex Spitfire AR Prism Scope 1X and I will say yes, I am very pleased. Spitfire immediately calls itself with a very thorough performance. Nothing moves, does not creak, the housing is probably aluminum and in exactly the same color as my HK - Spitfire, it is a professional thing for very reasonable money. Working on HK after adjustment thanks to the help of Ryan from the Vortex Team is a pleasure. At the moment, I immediately choose a target and hit the target centrally, I am fast and very precise with Spitfire. I would definitely recommend and thank Ryan for suggestions and advice, he would be hit and professional.

Great Red Dot At A Great Price
I’ve had this on my AR for over a year. The batteries last forever. The dot allows quick target acquisition. The rings provide reference for they eye and engaging targets farther out.

I love the ability to change the colors for conditions. The etched reticle is good for backup if the battery does go out.

Best 1x
It’s hands down the best 1x on the market. Use it for limited division shot out to 600 yards using the bdc turret and just holding over. Would recommend to anyone needing a dot for their AR.

Great red dot for those with astigmatism!
Had trouble finding a red dot due to astigmatism. This was the answer to all of my problems. Super crisp reticle and a quality product at a affordable cost!
