If you shoot real guns then you probably already know what makes Vortex Optics great, and this sight is no exception, but if you're an Airsofter what you need to know is this: You're getting a sight which is designed for real guns.

Full description


The sight features Vortex Optics HD Optical system, the latest revision to their advanced telescopic sights, which is designed to deliver exceptional resolution, cut chromatic aberration, and provide outstanding edge to edge sharpness and light transmission. The sight also provides an excellent field of view for both long range and medium range shooting thanks to its wide 25mm objective lens diameter.

The sight features the AR-BDC4 reticule which is etched into the lens allowing the sight to be used even if the battery are dead, this also makes the sight Astigmatism friendly. The reticule is illuminated red, and can be adjusted with up to 12 levels, with the lowest two being compatible with Night Vision and Light Enhancing Scopes. The sight is powered by a single CR2032 battery, and can be replaced with out tools by simply unscrewing the battery cover cap. 

The sight is fully adjustable for windage and elevation, and is adjusted at 1MOA per click, with a max windage and elevation adjustment of 250 MOA.

The optic comes packaged with two mounting options, with both a low and high mount for use on different weapon platforms. The high rise optic is perfect for AR / M4 platform weapons where the stock is in line with the top rail, and the low rise optic is perfect for guns with a butt stock which is lower than the upper rail, such as the AK platform. The mounts are simple to switch out in a matter of minutes.

The package comes with the sight, the two mounts, an specialised tool for fitting and adjust the sight, as a lens cover to protect the sight during transport.
