Vortex Red Dot Sights


Vortex Red Dot Sights

The red dot "Vortex" sights are ideal for when a shooter needs to react quickly to an emerging target. These sights allow you to shoot with both eyes open, which is ideal when speed and accuracy are important. They are nitrogen purged, waterproof, mist-proof and shockproof. The aluminum body is made of one-piece billets. The brightness of the sights are adjustable. Full multi-layer illumination increases light transmission of the lenses. All surfaces in contact with air are covered with anti-reflective coating.

The following models present range of sights within Vortex red dots:

AMG® UH-1® Gen II


AMG® UH-1® Gen II - this generation of high-precision holographic sight - allows you to effectively aim at small and medium distances. The sighting device is compatible with NV devices, has an easy to remove battery cover, enlarged size of the sighting window, reduced weight and the following features:

• zero image distortion without magnification,

• 4 night vision compatible (NV) modes with instantaneous switching with a separate button,

• full multi-layer lens enlightenment,

• 15 modes of glow intensity of EBR-CQB sights,

• environmental protection class IPX-8,

• almost invisible from the front brand glow,

• integrated quick-release mount.

Razor


The use of revolutionary Vortex technology, Quantum Well Light Control (FHQ™), makes the holographic image of the target brand bright and clear, with virtually no parallax throughout the lens. The use of "XR™ Plus" technology and multi-layer coating of glasses makes the optics perfect, provides the effect of glare removal and longevity of the lens. ArmorTek technology - an ultra-hard, scratch-resistant coating protects outer lenses from scratches, oil and dirt. All this allows you to point the -1 MOA to the target quickly and clearly, without any errors. The design of the body, the Razor® AMG™ UH-1™, is designed to leave the scope frame optically out of sight.

All controls of the AMG™ UH-1™ are located in its base, in a double casing, which provides unprecedented reliability of the collimator and protection from mechanical damage.

Another important feature of the Razor® AMG™ UH-1™ is the ability to use the LFP123A battery, which can be charged directly via USB port on the sight itself. The standard CR123A battery has a continuous operating life of approximately 1500 hours, with a set brightness level of 8-15. The collimator has an automatic shutdown function after 14 hours of continuous operation. All this makes the Razor® AMG™ UH-1™, the undisputed leader among holographic collimator sights, and will ensure the highest wishes and requirements of shooters.

Viper

SPARC AR

Vortex Sparc AR - SPARC (Speed Point Aiming for Rapid Combat) collimator sight is a very compact and ultra lightweight collimator sight. It has 10 brightness levels (the lowest two are compatible with night vision) and is mounted on a Picatinny bar. Suitable for both sport shooting and hunting. The multi-layer illumination of the lenses increases light transmission and improves image contrast. Horizontal and vertical correction range is 90 MOA. Battery life: 300 hours at maximum brightness setting and 5000 hours at minimum.

Features:

• Multi-layer optics - anti-reflective coating on the lens surface allows you to get a bright image.

• Nitrogen filled - Nitrogen filling and sealing system provides water resistance and resistance to high humidity.

• Impact-resistant - shock resistant construction.

• Unlimited distance from your eyes - no matter how far you take your eye from the collimator, you will quickly and accurately track each target.

Crossfire


Ultra-lightweight, ultra-compact, incredibly durable and weatherproof, allowing you to aim in an instant - all these are just common but essential features of the Vortex Crossfire 2 MOA (Weaver/Picatinny) collimator sight. The diameter of the sighting point is only 2 MOA, which is very convenient for shooting at short distances. However, it has 11 brightness levels, which are enough to activate the sight for shooting at longer distances during day and night. Two Weaver/Picatinny mountings of different heights are provided, allowing to raise to a new level the sighting characteristics not only of the gun, but also of the smoothbore rifle or automatic rifle.

Features:

• Multi-layer optics - the anti-reflective coating on the lens surface provides a bright image.

• Impact-resistant - shockproof construction.

• Unlimited distance from your eyes - no matter how far you take your eye from the collimator, you will quickly and accurately track each target.

• Waterproof - means that the sight is sealed with O-rings and protected from moisture penetration by IPX7 international class. Immersion in liquid for 30 minutes at a depth of 1 meter will not cause the slightest damage to the device and will not affect its functionality. Such optics will not be affected by any weather conditions.

• Fogproof - means that the case from the inside is filled with inert gas, which eliminates condensation of moisture on the inner surfaces in case of temperature fluctuations. As a result, the optics do not mist up from the inside and there is no corrosion of materials due to moisture. The device is blown with inert gas, as a result of which air is displaced in this case by nitrogen, which does not contain water vapor and does not condense on the inside surfaces of the optics.

StrikeFire II


The Vortex StrikeFire II collimator sight is a multifunctional, versatile and reliable collimator sight. The StrikeFire II collimator sight is an excellent choice for shooters who want a good quality sight but do not want to go broke in money.

It easily withstands 1000 shots with the Magnum 375 H & H.

The sight is supplied with a mounting bracket for mounting on AR-platforms, for positioning of the optical centre of the sight 40 mm above the level of the main surface.

StrikeFire - impact resistant, its aluminum body is made of one-piece workpiece. Colour of the reticle can be changed from red to green and back according to the hunting conditions, also with the help of 10 position rheostat the intensity of the reticle glow can be adjusted. Full multi-layer illumination increases light transmission of the lenses. All surfaces in contact with the air are treated with an anti-reflective coating. The sight is rebuilt from parallax at a distance of 45 m, at distances less than 45 m, the error is 2,5 cm. Time of operation on one battery - from 300 to 6000 hours.
