Vortex Spitfire Prism 1X Rifle Scope is rated out of 5 by 9.Rated 5 out of 5 by Randy from Best bet for astigmatism sufferers If you suffer from astigmatism or see blurry traditional red dots...this scope is for you. Prismatic sights, like this one, will show a nice, defined dot or aiming point. This is model is typical Vortex quality and typical great SG pricing.Date published: 2017-04-15Rated 5 out of 5 by analia from Great optic for the price This scope is plain AMAZING!! the etched reticle on the glass is very cleear and visible for daytime shooting. The red/green is great for nighttime shooting. the turrets for windage/elevation adjustments are toolless and make a world of a difference when the need to adjust quickly is needed. i love it mounts easily and with the perfect height for my ar15.Date published: 2017-03-29Rated 4 out of 5 by Steve from Nice optics On and off button takes getting used to, but happy with purchase.Priced well.Date published: 2017-03-24Rated 4 out of 5 by AZ Dan from Comparing to the Spitfire 1X This AR is considered an upgrade to the older 1X version. It is slimmer and the illumination controls have been moved to the front as buttons. Also it now uses a common AAA battery versus the CR2032. The buttons make for easy adjustmentof brightness all the way down to NV settings. You have to hold both buttons down to turn the unit off and it makes it difficult to put any accessory in front as it will block use of the buttons.(1X controls the on/off brightness on top) It is fixed 1/3 co-witness which cannot be changed due to the battery compartment located in the mount.(You can remove and change it on the 1X) But, the AR has two cross screw mounts vs the larger one mount on the 1X for more stability. The brightness on the AR does not come up to the intensity on the 1x. This is no big deal as the etched reticle makes daylight shooting easy. It does have auto-off features on the battery which is nice. The lens is slightly larger at 25mm vs 20m for the 1X.It also includes a BDC knob to replace the elevation knob specifically for dialingin long distances with your AR.Overall, I love the new buttons vs the clunky rotary on the 1X but wish they would have put them on the side of the scope. I like having BUS but as I said the rear sight would block the control buttons. Having the etched reticle probably negates the need for the BUS but I really would like the option. The AR is a much cleaner look and quality is what you would expect from Vortex. It is still an excellent choiceand you still have that Vortex lifetime warranty and the great return policy from the Guide!Date published: 2016-12-30Rated 5 out of 5 by 18th corp from Vortex spitfire A-1 Optic nothing compares in this price range.Date published: 2016-12-08Rated 5 out of 5 by Monroefun from Excellent short range / CQB sight This was mounted on my AR pistol with 7" barrel. I mounted the sight just forward of the receiver on the rail. The first 3 rounds down range were at 25 yards and were 3" low and 1" left. I made adjustments and fired 3 more rounds. The adjustments made moved the shot group up and in line with the bulls eye. I made right adjustment and fired 3 more rounds. DEAD ON!!! Moved the target to 50 yards and shot 5 rounds. All were within 2" of the bulls eye with 1 bulls eye hit.The dot in the reticle is extremely small and is hard to find on a target for pinpoint accuracy (this sight is not intended for pin point but CQB rapid fire).The crossbolts backed out during firing and I stripped the head on one of the crossbolts trying to tighten it. I placed blue lock tight on it and hope it will hold.The sight seems to be perfect for what I bought it for: 1) CQB 2) red or green illuminated reticle 3) common AAA battery - easy to find replacement 4) rugged and capable of working with out a battery (etched reticle)Over all this is a wonderful sight and we will see how it holds up to use.Date published: 2016-11-03Rated 4 out of 5 by DMoneyTT from Awesomely fast and precise for 1x. The Good: Clarity and brightness are impeccable. No barrel distortion or fish eye at all. Crisp reticle. 2 MOA center dot lends itself to very good accuracy. Minimal profile makes for a fairly unobstructed view for the sighting eye. Ballistic turret is a nice touch. Very well-designed controls and user interface. Ridiculously large eye box.The Bad: Reticle is too "busy" for my taste. The little 2 MOA dot is fine for precision on brightly lit, light-colored tartgets, but gets lost easily in a woods background. The illumination is nowhere near bright enough to help that little dot show up. Despite it's shortcomings, this is still my go-to when I will be running an optic on an AR. It negates my astigmatism, is crystal clear, offers good precision, and isn't very heavy.Date published: 2016-08-31Rated 3 out of 5 by kytransplant from Good with a little supplemental engineering... Long story short. There are four tiny hex head screws that attach the riser (clamp to the pic rail) to the scope. These are hardened steel, the casing of the scope is aluminum. Mine was delivered loose, so I decided to snug the screws a bit to tighten the assembly. I did NOT gorilla tighten them. They stripped out. All of them. I could not make the screws even a little snug without this happening. My solution was to place a thin layer of PL Premium 8x (from Lowe's) to the plate and scope body as well as the screws. A small clamp and 24 hours later - problem solved. I suspect this will begin to be a problem with many others who might use the scope in various real-world conditions, so Caveat emptor!Date published: 2016-07-26
