Default BIG fan of Vortex Strikefire

On the recommendation of several here, and my budget, I went the Vortex route. Found one on sale $149. A couple of observations:
- lens caps. They drive me nuts. I will say this the wiggling and torquing needed to work with these things sure puts the mount and the scope to the test! Think they get better with age
- 2x magnifier is supposedly no good? I call BS on that, look at the target on the left vs the right (without magnifier). That is 50 yards ten shot groups, 1 shot every second. Looks like it makes a difference although don't think I'd leave it on the scope
- I purposely pushed and pulled on this scope in between range trips, used it as a handle a couple of times etc to see if it held zero. Completely held zero.

Very impressed seems like one of the better values out there

(Bottom target is the one on the left enlarged. Used independence 5.56 55 grain)

I've heard nothing but good things about the Strikefire! Happy you like it and love your AR! More porn plz...


Hey have you used the doubler at longer ranges? Like 200+ yards? Just about any glass will be good for 50 yards..... does it change the point of aim any, or require a more consisitent check weld?

It hits an 8" metal plate at 200 meters (5/5) I am sure it would group well with a scope the dot pretty much covers up the circle of the target at that distance though
