StrikeFire II Red Dot - 4 MOA Red/Green Dot
When situations demand split-second target acquisition and maximum field of view, mount up the StrikeFire II and shoot—both eyes open. Feature-rich, versatile and reliable, the StrikeFire II is a great choice for shooters who want a quality red dot sight. Features sleek rear-facing controls for power on/off and easy adjustment of ten dot intensity levels—lowest two settings are night-vision compatible. Automatically returns to the last dot intensity used when powered up. The 30mm aluminum alloy chassis provides extra-high recoil rating and is waterproof and fogproof. Strike fast!
The lower 1/3 co-witness cantilever mount model is ideal for AR platforms, positioning the optic bore center 40 mm above the base surface.
OPTICAL & CONVENIENCE FEATURES
Fully Multi-Coated: Multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces increase light transmission.
Red/Green Dot: Allows shooters a choice of dot color.
Brightness Settings: 10 Levels
Parallax-Free: All red dot and holographic sights will exhibit some small amount of parallax. Matching current industry practice, this small amount would be considered “parallax-free” and will make a negligible difference in the StrikeFire II's performance.
Cantilever Ring Mount: Puts the optic bore center 40 mm above the base, providing lower 1/3 co-witness with iron sights on flat top AR-15 rifles.
Unlimited Eye Relief: Non-critical eye relief for rapid target acquisition.
Adjustable Dot Intensity: Provides ten variable illumination settings—the lowest two settings are night-vision compatible.
Battery Life: 12-hour auto-shutdown feature maximizes battery life. Typical battery life is 300 hours at maximum brightness and 6,000 hours at minimum brightness setting.
Single-Piece Chassis: Compact and lightweight.
Waterproof: O-ring seals prevent moisture, dust and debris from penetrating for reliable performance in all environments.
Fogproof: Nitrogen gas purging delivers fogproof, waterproof performance.

The optic came in a box with all the necessary hardware for mounting (it came with a cantilever mount for lower 1/3 co-witness), a torx key for the mount screws, obligatory paperwork, an off-brand battery, and the hat.
After mounting it to my rifle, I headed to the range for zero. I previously boresighted it manually in my backyard by removing the bcg and looking through the barrel at a target and roughly adjusting the optic to get it on paper. At the range, it took approximately 20 minutes total to have it set for a 50/200 zero, firing ~3/4" groups at 50 yards. MANY MANY rounds later, the zero has not shifted, and I haven't removed the turret caps since that first day.
One of my favorite things about this optic is that it comes ready to rock right out of the box. The optic has everything you need to stick it to your blaster, the brightness settings range from "NVG dim" to "desert-at-midday bright", and the reticle switches between green and red, which is a nice touch. The flip caps are easy to open, and close with one finger. Every screw cap (battery compartment, windage/elevation knobs) has a rubber gasket to keep it waterproof and it is nitrogen purged to keep it fog proof. I have used and abused the optic and it has withstood everything from snow/rain to heat/humidity and drops that would make you cringe.
The logos are either laser-etched or engraved onto the optic, either way, they are bright silver. The logos on the mounts seem to have been grayed over, but a black marker to the white logos on the front and sides of the optic took care of that.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this optic for those who are building their rifles around the 0-200 range application. I have used it for farther distances, but I feel as though red dots really shine inside 300.
-VERY solid once mounted
-Holds zero well
-Flip caps are easier to operate than the original Strikefire
-Cantilever mount makes use of a magnifier possible
-Red/green dots with many brightness settings
-Low-ish battery life
-4 MOA dot is a bit large for distance shots
I really like the option of red or green dot, I have proliferative diabetic retinopathy and have problems seeing the red dot on occasion, but the green REALLY stands out for me. The controls are easily accessible and intuitive. The flip up covers open easily and close snugly. All in all I'm quite pleased with this optic.
Never did get hat though.
The Strikefire Gen. 2 has addressed both of these issues where the controls are now only located on the front of the face, (Not the Side as on the Gen.1), and you utilize the on/off by holding the brightness button down for about 3 or 4 seconds and the NV will now be the lowest 2 brightness settings. The optic caps close and open much easier as well. Many people complained that the Gen.1 lens caps would not stay closed and always pop back open. Mine were always a little hard to open and close but fortunately I didn't have any issues with them popping open.
Anyway, the Gen.2 eleviates this issue completely as well.
All and all I am very pleased with this optic and would highly recommend it!
I run an EoTech EXPS3 on a IWI Tavor, AIMPoint PRO on a Stag Mod.8 Piston AR and a Trijicon 4x32 ACOG with a RMR on a Colt LE 6920 AR. This Gen2 will replace the Gen.1 on my Core 15 and I have no don't that for the money it's the best thing on the market IMHO!
