About this item

  • The updated Strike Eagle 1-6x24 is defined by speed and versatility. A true 1x on the low end adapts to a wide range of scenarios, letting shooters rapidly engage targets from point-blank to extended ranges.
  • The magnification ring has been updated and now includes a thread-in throw lever, and the magnification indicators can now be seen without coming off the scope.
  • The new illuminated BDC3 reticle focuses the shooter's eye to the target faster and holdovers allow for immediate use out to 650 yards for targets of known distance.
  • The fast focus dial on the eyepiece allows for quick and easy reticle focusing. Anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces provide increased light transmission for greater clarity and low-light performance.
  • Nitrogen purged and o-ring sealed the for water and fogproof performance. The one piece, aircraft grade aluminum, 30mm tube is shockproof shrugging off recoil and other impacts.

Always the perfect gift

5.0 out of 5 stars One sexy scope
By Lindsey on November 22, 2022
I feel like I stole this a few months ago. My first serious scope for my first serious rifle. Paired it with a 308. Got it dialed in this summer and then finally rifle season has arrived. Wow. This scope does super well I. The last 20 mins of legal light. This image is zoomed in at 180 yards. Crystal clear (hard to get a photo with my phone) image. Smooth zoom. I am in love. The illumination is bright but can dim to your liking. I finally got to play with it a bit the other day and not sure exathow I'll use it.

A few minor dings to it. 1. Parallax is extremely stiff. They said it would soften up. The hash marks on the top turet don't line up 100% but they are close and useable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strike Eagle 1-6x
By Chromebonez on October 15, 2015
Hello Everyone, I just wanted to give a review on this scope to try and help others.

First off, this scope seems very well-built from the knurled focus knob to the little low profile bump on the zoom knob to assist you in changing your zoom. Windage and Elevation adjustments have nice clean clicks. The body is thick and solid, seems like it could take a couple bangs and some light drops.

The glass is very nice for the price, not as good as the XD Glass (Extra-Low Dispersion) Vortex offers in other scopes such as the Viper PST. If I had to be picky, yes, the XD Glass is nicer, but only by 15-20% give or take, this is just my opinion though. With that being said, I am more than satisfied with the glass on this scope. It is very close to true 1x, if your inside a small room you will notice a bit of fish eye, but you can still use it with two eyes opened, once you get a little further away about 20ft or so, it is true 1x from there on out.

Illumination, isn't as bright as most people would want it. On a nice sunny day, your probably gonna be running it at the max setting which will definitely do the job, you can still see your reticle in red, but it's not very eye catching, more like "hey, my reticle is red". I would say the max setting on the Strike Eagle is probably the 8-9 setting on an Aimpoint Micro H-1. I never found myself using the illumination much anyways. Especially outdoors, the etched reticle was more then visible.

There's two things I didn't like about this scope.

The Eyebox on this scope is tight, practicing with this scope and making sure your cheekweld is consistent is going to be important to get a correctly centered, full field of view sight picture, when looking through the scope. The higher in magnification you go, the tighter the eyebox gets. It does have very good eye relief at about 4 inches, I shoot nose to charging handle so I mounted my scope slightly more forward and it worked great to help me get a very consistent cheekweld giving me the same correct sight picture everytime. If the eyebox was wider, I think you would be able to run this scope a lot faster but most of the times you only see good eyeboxes in more expensive scopes so I can't complain much. Practice and consistent cheekweld will definitely help you with this problem.

The other thing is the reticle. I couldn't get use to it. Using it in close quarters just didn't feel right, I would much rather have a dot in the middle instead of placing a busy crosshair on target. Especially when you are in a place with barricades and obstacles I think a dot in the middle would've been better suited vs the crosshairs. The horseshoe is great for close quarters but it covers a lot of your target and will never be as precise vs. having a dot in the middle, but some people just want combat effective hits as quickly as possible and the horseshoe will do that. The crosshairs were more suited for long range precision shots which is where I think this reticle excels. I used this scope on and off the bench successfully, but when I was on the bench or using something for support for long range shots, I found this crosshair to help me be more accurate vs. a dot. But when your shooting offhand which is what I mostly do, I think this reticle is harder to use vs a dot because it is more busy and you will see more moving around rather than just focusing on putting a dot on target. I'll post some photos of the reticle so maybe you guys can decide what you think of it, after all, this is just my opinion. I think this reticle offers what you need, horseshoe for quick target aquisition, and crosshairs for more precise shots out at further distances, but I feel a dot in the middle of this reticle would have suited me better because it would produce a simple clean sight picture allowing me to be faster and letting me see more of my target.

I'm pretty picky when it comes to buying the right gear for my firearms and I always look for the best I can get out of my money, this scope is definitely an exception to that if you can't afford the 900+ 1-6x scopes. This is a very quality 1-6x scope for the price sold by a company that has a lifetime no questions asked warranty, I think the biggest question is, Do you like the reticle? I don't think you will know until you use it in person. If you do like this reticle, do yourself a favor and like the other reviewer said, "Just get it."

This is the end of my super long review, thanks for reading.
I'd appreciate it if you guys let me know if it helped you out in some way. Feel free to comment any questions you have. Thanks!
