    Does anyone use this scope on their ar? I'm thinking about this one for an ar pistol.

    I have a Strikefire II on an AR pistol as well as three other Vortex offerings on other firearms. I highly recommend them.

    Another vote for the strikefire ii, I recently took it off my rifle and am moving it to the pistol/sbr build.

    I've got 3 or 4 Vortex optics, as well, and highly recommend them. I think the Sparc and a couple of Crossfire IIs, seems to me there's one other, as well, but I can't remember it. I don't have any of the really high-dollar offerings from them - or anybody, really.

    Warranty is great, they just replaced this one. Held up surprisingly well compared to the rest of the rifle. The guy was gonna buy an eotech, but since vortex replaced it, he's changed his mind and sticking with them.

    Unconditional guarantee, doesnt matter if you have box, receipt, or are the original owner, if its a vortex and it doesnt work for any reason, they replace it.

    I got mine in the mail today. It seems solid enough but the dot clarity is what I'm really impressed with. I have an astigmatism and I had lasik done a few years ago. Lights in general are blurry to me and I ended up selling off an Eotech and an Aimpoint. This one is nice and crisp. I was hopeful but it is better than I had hoped for.

    Did you get the 1X from Cabelas for $199.99?
    Mine came in Thursday and it seems nice. I may go ahead and get another one.
