It is built from the ground up specifically to maximize the quick-handling performance of AR-platform rifles. Vortex’s new Spitfire™ AR 1X prism scope delivers incredible optical quality and ultra-fast functionality in a lightweight, streamlined package. The generous, parallax-free, sight picture and forgiving eyebox allow shooters on target effortlessly—even in high-stress scenarios.
Rear-facing power and illumination intensity controls are easy to access, simple to operate, stay visually present from the shooting position and are protected from incidental contact. Ten intensity levels let you adjust to match ambient light conditions perfectly. The Spitfire runs off a single common AAA battery. The DRT Dual Ring Tactical reticle is etched directly on the prism to assure consistent point-of-aim at all times— regardless of whether or not the illumination is engaged. An additional yardage-marked turret cap ballistic-matched to the 5.56 cartridge allows the shooter to swap out the factory-installed cap for rapid dialing of known-distance shots out to 700 yards.
At 11.2 ounces, the lightweight Spitfire AR excels in close to medium range shooting applications where speed is of the essence. Making it the ideal choice for AR shooters who needs to get on target fast.
Note: Prism Scopes are not compatible with the VMX-3T Magnifier.
Mount Height: Comes mounted at a lower 1/3 co-witness height of 40.4 mm from the optic center to the base surface.
Adjustable Brightness: Provides five levels of brightness intensity with red and green illumination settings.
Red/Green Reticle Option: Allows shooters a choice of dot color.
Battery Life: 14-hour auto-shutdown feature maximizes battery life. Typical battery life is 250 hours at maximum brightness and 3,000 hours at minimum brightness setting.
