Vortex Sparc or Strikefire

Need some help, I am looking at the Vortex Sparc & the Strikefire red dot scopes. I am wanting to put one on an AR-15 for shooting in 3-gun matches. Just getting started in 3-gun and need to keep it under $200.00 Need some opinions.

Thanks in advance

Re: Vortex Sparc or Strikefire

After looking at both I went with the sparc for my AR. I liked that it was smaller but the main reason I wanted it was the 2 moa dot over the larger 4 moa of the strikefire. I like the buttons on the sparc and all the mounting options. I'm using the tallest mount option so I can lower 1/3rd cowitness with my irons. I figured if something was out at 200yds I didn't want my dot covering 8"s of it. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to find the smaller dot as easy but it turns out there was nothing to be worried about, it's easy to find and speeds up my shooting greatly.

Re: Vortex Sparc or Strikefire

There have been some threads on these RDS over at M4Carbine.net. They dont seem to bad, I have no first hand experience with them but like you have been looking into their products. I think their 3x magnifiers are ok.

I haven't used my magnifier yet. I think it came with a 2x. Figure if I wanted that I'd grab something else.
