Rated 5 out of 5 by from Run this on my work rifle The original Sparc was my first Vortex product and the Sparc AR was a great upgrade to it. I've been running this optic on my work rifle for years and it has stood up very well. I've been in torrential downpours for hours and never seen any fogging or water inside the optic. It's received a beating in takedowns, entries, and in training and has always held zero. I've seen some reviews about the LED housing blocking the view, but I've never noticed it at all. The fact that it takes readily available AAA batteries is a deal maker! The price point also makes it hugely attractive to the average buyer. I currently have 3 or 4 on miscellaneous rifles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My EoTech is grainy, this is not. Bought this a few months ago for a new dedicated .22 build. Let's just say the EoTech stays at home. My glob doesn't get in the way, honestly I can't see it while looking down sights. I don't know what other people are talking about not taking it past 50 yards. Shot it out to 100 with a .22lr and was hitting bullseyes in the small 4 corner circles on a sighting target. Honestly I couldn't see the tiny diamonds and I had help from a friend and a spotting scope, but the middle one wasn't too bad to see. At 50 yards, it was too easy. Don't waste your money on "expensive" brands unless your active duty and climbing through war daily. For home defense and the range, it's a keeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding The small size makes it a big deal. If you are concerned about weight on your AR this is a great pick. I love how quickly I was able to zero it in. The caps having the flat head tip to make the setting changes is a really nice design feature. The lense caps locking together, again a great feature. Combine that with the battery being a triple A (easy to get one). They really put a lot of design thought into this unit. Once you look at all this and then the price is such a great deal. I would put this up against any aimpoint and the price makes it for general public.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicely Designed Red Dot I have been using this red dot on my AR for several months now and it has function well for me. The 2 MOA dot is a good compromise to quickly obtain close in targets and still have decent accuracy at 100+ yards. I like the use of the high mount space to house the battery. Using the common aaa battery is another plus and the automatic shut off feature is also nice. The integrated mount is solid and holds well. The snap together lens caps took a little getting used to but I now really like that feature. All and all this is a well designed red dot site at a very competitive price in a very competitive market. I would not hesitate to recommend it to friends.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for Price Point Overall I am happy with this sight, but there are a few things. 1. Dot "flares" when off the lowest brightness level. At a 100 yards this tends to obscure the target to the point where you can hit a 2" target, but you will be unable to be anymore accurate than that. 2. When the lowest brightness setting is selected there is indeed a dot, but it is so dim you have trouble focusing on it in all lighting conditions. At this price point the SPARC AR Red Dot is great for quick the acquisition needed for varmint hunting, but do not expect to be able to "Paint" the bullseye at much over 35-40 yards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shoot better I am so happy with this item, I am a better shooter because of it. Using this trained me to fire with both eyes open, and that has been a game changer on the trap range. sounds strange, I know. Seriously I couldn't be happier with this product the sight picture you get, the solid feel of it, really intuitive use, ease of installation and zeroing, all top notch. It took me about 8 rounds and 4 minutes to get this thing dialed in dead on. I'm ~1500 rounds into it's use over about 6 days at the range and one pretty hard drop from a friend's hands. It stayed zeroed 100%. Great product,I highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value optic This SPARC sits on top of my PCC. It is clearly meant to compete in the Aimpoint Micro, Trijicon MRO, style of sights, but comes in at a budget price compared to the others. This is quite evident when handling and using the optic. The adjustment buttons are cheap feeling, and the field of view is poor, meaning there is a lot of the optic housing in your view when looking through the optic. That said, the glass is clear, the dot is bright, the mount is solid. It all works, and it works well. You can't beat the value of this optic. I'll keep it on my PCC and keep blazing away!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product for the money I purchased this optic last year for my .300 BLK upper, and so far I’m very happy with it. It’s a very well made unit with some great features. My only criticism is the battery life. The 300-5000 hour rating seems pretty underwhelming when some of the competitors budget optics are sporting 30-50k hour run-times like the flagship brands. The only reason I find this to be a non-issue is the fact the Sparc AR used a super common AAA battery which is easily replaced.
