Default Vortex Strikefire flash-killer

Wow, I ordered this from amazon and was here in two days!

Because I was having a problem with deer seeing the mirror reflection in my Vortex strikefire red dot scope on my AR, I ordered a cure. see photos
The Vortex "flashkiller", it screws in over the lens.

That's pretty cool. Does it effect image quality much?

That's pretty cool I'd imagine it does a number on any optics ability to collect light. But if you are in normal day light it should work OK.

Not much, just a little bit, it dose not affect the dot, it is bright and clear.
