The new Vortex Sparc II red dot

Published on January 11, 2015 by in News, Products

8_5307_xl_3

 

Not so long ago we reviewed the first generation of what seems to be one of the best low cost real steel red dots.

And we were very impressed at the quality, features and price of this optic.

Now it seems that GEN2 of the Sparc is here and Vortex took some learnings out of what was already a massively popular product both on real steel and Airsoft:

Get on target fast with the SPARC II. Ultra-compact and lightweight, the SPARC II (Speed Point Aiming for Rapid Combat) is equally at home mounted on an AR-15 or shotgun. Digital rear facing controls for powering on/off and adjusting the 2 MOA daylight bright red dot brightness at ten intensity levels—automatically returning to the last dot intensity used when powered up. Rugged single-piece body machined from aircraft grade aluminum is o-ring sealed for waterproof and fogproof performance

So if your looking to replace your cheap clones with something built to last and proven you can get the Sparc II for about £146 or around €199.

Arsenal – SM-13 AK Optics Mount

Published on December 9, 2013 by in News, Products

arsenal logo

 

Arsenal Inc. has a new optics mount for AK-style rifles. The SM-13 is made from a single piece of aircraft grade aluminum and is designed to attach to the side of an AK variant rifle for maximum stability. Since there aren’t any good options on the market for mounting optics on Airsoft AK’s (at least in my opinion) maybe this mount for real AK’s will fit Airsoft AK’s and give the AK fans on Airsoft a solid quality option to mount optics or better yet maybe a Airsoft company finally decides to make a good quality mount based on this one.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The SM-13 follows the contour of the rifle closely. The low-profile design allows for the use of the iron sights when the scope mount is attached to the rifle. It relies on a time-proven steel adjustable locking mechanism that allows instantaneous attachment and release of the scope mount without any compromise to the accuracy and loss of zero, company officials say.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Unlike some other mounts that attach to unstable top covers or gas tubes, the SM-13 attaches to the side scope rail of an AK variant rifle, which provides the most stable attaching platform on the rifle.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Available for $130.00USD from Arsenal INC.

Review: Vortex Optics VMX-3T Magnifier

myPrecious

 

Here’s Operator7 latest review on Popular Airsoft:

Vortex has come a long way from being a less known (at least to us Airsofters), low cost optics maker for hunting rifles to a rising star in this competitive industry. Even the Stickman now uses their awesome optics in his photos alongside with top of notch AR15s and other real steel dream stuff such as BattleComp compensators, Magpul, SureFire, Noveske, among others.

This review is also sort of a tribute to the Stickman’s work, since I opted to bring his style of photography onto Airsoft and used my humble Canon Powershot SX 100IS to try and recreate his shots, utterly failing nonetheless. 🙂

As for Vortex’s products, I had the opportunity to review the Sparc Red Dot last year and have been using it ever since, since it has become one of my favourite optics thanks to its quality, aggressive pricing and features.

And now, thanks to ASGShop.pl I have been lucky enough to use and review the VMX-3T Magnifier which coupled with the Sparc red dot offers an awesome hybrid solution.
