Product Description

When shooters demand the quick-handling characteristics of a red dot, but suffer starburst effects in red dots from common astigmatism, the Spitfire AR is the perfect choice. The glass-etched DRT (Dual Ring Tactical) reticle can be used with or without the red/green illumination like a traditional riflescope, and makes target and reticle acquisition in close-quarters a snap. Unique to the Spitfire AR, an included 5.56 BDC turret allows shooters to dial popular AR-15 configurations to 700 yards—perfect for limited division 3-Gun competitors or range-goers who wish to engage targets from point blank to extended range.

In the Box:
  • T-10 Torx wrench
  • 556 BDC turret cap
  • AAA battery
  • Flip caps

  • Battery Life: Up to 250 hours on highest setting. Up to 3,000 hours on lowest setting
  • Prism Scopes are not compatible with the VMX-3T Magnifier
  • Fully Multi-Coated Increase light transmission with multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces.
  • Prism-Based Design Delivers sharp optics and allows for unique reticle designs that are visible with or without illumination.
  • Brightness Settings Provides 12 variable illumination settings - adjusts for use in very dim to very bright lighting conditions.
  • Parallax Free All red dot and holographic sights will exhibit some small amount of parallax. Matching current industry practice, this small amount would be considered "parallax free" and will make a negligible difference in performance.
  • Single-Piece Chassis Compact and lightweight.
  • Waterproof O-ring seals prevent moisture, dust and debris from penetrating for reliable performance in all environments.
  • Shockproof Rugged construction withstands recoil and impact.
  • Matte Anodized Finish Corrosion and wear resistant anodization provides low-glare matte surface and helps camouflage the shooter's position.

Reticle: The DRT (Dual Ring Tactical) reticle is designed for rapid shooting at close distances. The dual ring design pulls the eye into instant alignment with the reticle center and target. Etched directly on the prism to assure consistent point-of-aim at all times with selectable red/green illumination of five intensity levels to match specific conditions.

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.
