I think the Eagle Strike is made in China so it would hit or miss on the quality of all the components. I'll see if I get a good one once received. Chris

Chris looks like you may have purchased already but I have one on my
AR you can try. I'm also a member of BCGF and can meet you one day.

I have one on a AR I ran for a Carbine class at BSR.

It worked fine for the class from almost touching distance to 100 yards. My has clear, good field of view, no noticeable fish eye.

If you get one with issues, contact Vortex, they will fix or replace it.

It's definitely made with Vortex's lower-end glass, but you get what you pay for. Mine has held zero over a few thousand rounds. I think it was made to be an affordable 3-gun scope and it does that job well.

Well mine came in today-it was sold as a used/demo/open box scope it doesn't look used at all not a mark on it. Now off to find a mount unless I have one somewhere in the room (play). Chris

Well I got a Vortex mount from Free State at a fair price and off the range I went. Took about 5 rounds to get it on the money, I like the set up very eye and user friendly. I was ready to do some serious off hand when the rifle I had mounted it on started to crap out every other round, first was FTE then FTF then not locking back on last round. Adcor upper piston rifle now to figure out it's problem. I really like the Vortex scope. Very clear even for these older eyes. Chris

Another thumbs up for the SE. I was not sure what type of optic I wanted to use on my Scar17. Thur 300 rds it has held zero. I too thought at first that the reticle was a little busy but got comfortable with it. The quality you get at the price along with the great warranty make it a winner.

I am actually thinking of one of these to add to my delton AR-15. I was originally going to keep it an iron sight rifle but since adding a vortex spitfire 1x to my lwrc di and spitfire 3x to my Rock river arms, ive taken a liking to optics lol.

I don't think I'd every be shooting past 300 yards on that rifle so I think this might be a good all round choice. Seems like an all season tire would be a good analogy.

this sounds like it would be nice with an American defense qd mount.

I fixed my rifle feeding problems-found out someone had used some kind of lube where they shouldn't have. Cleaned it up and the rifle is running fine. I really like this scope very clear and stays on zero, easy to acquire target. Very happy, Chris.
