Etched directly on the prism to assure consistent factor-of-purpose at all times with selectable purple/inexperienced illumination of five depth tiers to in shape particular conditions.

fundamental operation

illumination is available in both pink and inexperienced hues. To exchange between shades, momentarily press and launch both up and down buttons at the equal time. Illumination depth may be adjusted via either tapping up or down buttons, or maintaining button down to routinely cycle via adjustment range. The spitfire has twelve levels of brightness, with the closing two being ultra-low to permit use with nv system.

the spitfire prism scope makes use of a quick consciousness eyepiece designed to speedy and without difficulty offer a sharply targeted reticle. To alter the reticle consciousness:

1. Glance through the scope at a clean white wall or up on the sky.

2. Turn the eyepiece focus dial in or out till the reticle photograph is as crisp as viable.

orient the spitfire so the adjustment buttons face the shooter.

1. Loosen the base crossbolts and fix the spitfire to the rail/base, ensuring that balk lugs are solidly seated within the base groove.

2. Test that the mount absolutely engages the base, press the spitfire down and forward, then tighten the base crossbolts.

  1. I’m Me

    If you have an Astigmatism, this is probably the only RDS to truly consider. If you don’t, it’s still a must for 1x battlefield style RDS. I’ve used several different RDS over the years. The EO Techs have double images, the Aimpoints are a combo of grapes and sunburst. And I’ve read some promising reviews on others, but when you dig deep, they are good for some, but definitely not for all. This Vortex Spitfire however, is crystal clear, not an ounce of blurring, shading, bursting, or anything. Absolutely perfect, and without glasses. Now on to the sight, whether you have an astigmatism or not… I was afraid the 2 rings and a the dot would be too much, distracting, and get in the way of the sight picture. Wrong. It’s actually the opposite. Sight acquisition is much faster. You can get the 2 rings up on target centered ultra-fast. And for the longer shots, the rings will get you close and the dot will hone you in for the perfect shot. I really like the fact you can switch from red to green. And like others, you can adjust the brightness. Obviously different lighting conditions will determine if one is superior to the other, but overall, I find the green quicker and easier, especially with my aging eyes. I have primarily used the box style RDS, with a big sight picture through the glass. I was also worried with the smaller sight picture through the actual sight on this, it would minimize the overall sight picture acquisition making target lock-on harder. Again…couldn’t have been more wrong. The profile of the sight is small and there is very minimal obstruction of the frame in the sight picture, both in the sight and peripherally. Very easy and quick to use when shooting with both eyes open, and to keep on target while shooting and moving (and keep your peripheral observation possible). And if you’re a one-eyed shooter, you still have enough peripheral viewing that the smaller window will not be any concern. I actually again find it quicker than the box style. The frame of the sight actually also works as a bigger sighting ring. Because the window is smaller, you get your target in the sight picture quicker because there’s less of a window to move your target around. With the box sights, I found myself primarily focused on whatever is in the glass, minimizing my overall observation of my area of operation. With the smaller sight than the box style, I can focus on whatever I’m up on target on, but still be able to observe the remaining areas of my normal visual plane. Basically, this allows me to focus on my target only, focus on both target and peripheral, or quickly scan everything…adding to the versatility. The box style just feels like it forces me to narrowly focus through the sight only. With this sight in particular, I also like that I can turn it off or it turns off automatically when it does not sense it’s in use anymore. And it turns on quickly.I like there is an interchangeable elevation knob specific to the 5.56/.223. When you unscrew the cap covers, the windage adjustment is a standard MOA click (that you can unscrew and reset to zero once sighted in). For elevation, you can either keep the standard MOA or swap out for the 5.56/.223 marked up knob, which has numbers on it is based on yards (again, can reset to zero after sight-in). For my eyes, I like that the sighting is rings and a ultra fine dot and does not use the drop lines. My eyes aren’t completely terrible, but using those may be obsolete in a real setting for me (if I can’t even see the lines and elevation markers). Besides, once you get past a hundred yards, now you have to start thinking about windage too. At that point, I’ll need a program, chart, or other mechanism to get the right sight-in. And at the point when I’m taking time to calculate, I now have time to unscrew the cap covers and adjust windage and elevation through clicks, which is more accurate because I can then put the single dot on target, not a guesstimate line. Also, let’s be real, this is not being used for a sniper rifle, so I’m not sure I’ll ever adjust anyhow. This is a battlefield style sight for 100 yards and in. Overall, if I could give this more than 5 stars, I would. Price, functionality, and quality deserve more. You will NOT be disappointed in this sight, astigmatism or not. Read more

    I must have gone through hundreds of sites, reviews, videos, etc. looking for the perfect sight for my first AR-15 custom build. I had originally wish-listed the old Spitfire with DRT reticle, but that one was since seemingly replaced by this newer, smaller, cheaper (only cost-wise) version. Excellent sight. Excellent optics. Excellent body, heft, sturdiness, the built-in mount – all of it. Crystal clear reticle when lit in darkness, and the etching is outstanding in bright sunlight (don’t need to turn it on at all when at the range). I love this thing. Just spent some quality time with the newly finished rifle at the range today and sighted this scope in first at 25 yards, then at 100. I had roughly sighted it in with a cheap bore sight in the garage prior to going, just to be sure that I landed on paper at all. The 5.56 BDC turret cap that comes with it really helped seal the deal for me (zero at 100 yards, install cap, and you now have a bullet drop compensator for longer ranges). I wanted a 1x, red-dot type scope for home defense, but with the ability to have fun at the range. This scope does that and even allows for playing at longer distances should the opportunity arise. The etched prism allows family members with astigmatism to see clearly. No worries about warping edges or fuzzy reticles with a 1-6x. Just simple “it works” hardware that will probably outlast the rifle itself. Don’t forget the name, either. Vortex’s lifetime worry-free warranty means I don’t have to worry about dropping this thing straight to pavement. Read more

    I love this sight on my CZ Scorpion. I have astigmatism, so red dots look like starbursts, or commas typically. Since this is a prism sight, it is crystal clear in a way that no other sight I’ve tried has been. The controls are very easy to use, with easy to access brightness adjustments. Press the brightness up and down buttons simultaneously to switch from a red to green reticle. Press and hold both for 5 seconds to turn the illumination off (this is a little inconvenient but works fine). Another great feature is, since the reticle is etched (like a scope), if you leave the illumination off, you still get a black reticle. This works great, particularly in bright sunlight. This leads me to my only real gripe about this sight, and that is that the illumination is just not bright enough to be “red dot” bright in bright sunlight, especially against highly reflective (white) targets. Also, like any red dot, if you’re shooting at a red bullseye, the red center dot on the reticle is very difficult to see. The solution to this, is to just turn the illumination off. I was disappointed in this at first, as the red illumination is a bit faster for target acquisition, but once I got used to it, the black reticle is very functional. It is worth noting that, I did compare this directly with the original Spitfire that is still available (the SPR-1301). The SPR-1301 is a LITTLE bit brighter than the Sptfire AR. However, for me, the controls were much harder to use (rotary dials for brightness instead of the illumination buttons). Ultimately, I decided to stick with the newer Spitfire AR and deal with the lower brightness. One final note, the Spitfire AR has a fairly high riser that is not removable. The iron sights on my Scorpion are very low, so co-witnessing is not possible with this setup. I believe it would work well for co-witnessing with an AR, though, as that is what the riser is intended for. Read more
