New Vortex SPARC optic
If there is one industry where the cliche, “You get what you pay for,” holds true, it is the gun industry. Well, one company has been able to challenge that philosophy; that company is Vortex Optics.
Vortex has gained increasing respect from gun industry consumers (a feat not easily accomplished) from products such as the Vortex Strikefire. The Strikefire is an inexpensive red dot system that holds its zero well and has probably one of the best price vs quality ratio out there for any optic.
Vortex is trying to continue the trend with its new Vortex SPARC optic. The SPARC resembles the Aimpoint Micro line of red dots at first glance, but with a closer look the SPARC varies with a few select features such as how you adjust brightness (a dial on the Aimpoint, a push button interface on the SPARC), and battery life (the SPARC has about 120 hours on full power, whereas the Aimpoint has about 50,000).
If we use the Vortex’s Strikefire as a precedent then it’ll be safe to assume that the SPARC will continue that great price/quality ratio that you get with Vortex. At a very conservative price of $200-$300, it provides a great option for those weekend range warriors that don’t have a need to dish out $500+ for a military grade red dot, while still providing them an accurate, quality, and aesthetically pleasing optic.
