Simple—Fast—Effective—Point and Shoot. When you boil it down, those are the advantages of a red dot sight. And that’s what the SPARC AR delivers - all in a durable, lightweight, compact, and ultra-clean package. Digital rear-facing controls for power and dot brightness offer quick access and are viewable from the shooting position. 2 MOA dot diameter promotes precise point of aim and automatically returns to last dot intensity used when powered up.

Unlimited eye relief and parallax free, the SPARC AR gets shooters on target fast. The SPARC AR is waterproof, fog proof and shockproof for ultimate durability. Unit automatically shuts off after 12 hours to prevent accidental battery rundown and operates using a common AAA battery. Duty rifle, home defense, recreation, the SPARC AR is built to handle all your red dot needs.

Can you mount this directly to the top rail on your AR and be able to see over a raised from sight? Thanks
Brian M on Apr 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It comes with spacers. I have mine set up as a lower 1/3 cowitness which sees over the front sight. You can also have an absolute cowitness where the front sight will fall directly in the center of your line of sight.
Can anyone that has one mounted on the a2 style upper post a pic? I just want to make sure it clears the fixed front sight before I purchase. Thank you.

BEST ANSWER: Is the upper a flat top or fixed Handle?
Can this scope be mounted on an AR15 carry handle and still be able to use the rear iron sight without taking it off the handle and does it come with the mount to use on the carry handle, if it can be used?

excellent red dot
I mounted this on a utility AR, i like it and will be getting two more one for a turkey shotgun and the other for a 30-30 woods carbine. it has kept zero and is rugged despite its small size.

Solid red dot at a good price.
Everything I would expect from a red dot. It’s durable, the battery lasts a long time, and it is accurate. Quick acquisition of targets as well. I like it way more than the lower grade red dots by vortex.

Got a great deal!
Very hard to beat this AR red dot for the money. It's my second one. I own an AimPoint Micro, too (which I love), but for less than a 1/4 of the price, how can you beat it?

Great dot for the money!!!!
One of the best red dots I own. Love the 2 MOA dot. Nice dot, only wish they had flip up caps instead of the flopping around rubber ones that kind of snap together and just hang together. I do love the red dot!!!

Get it!
I was able to grab this sight on the Fourth of July sale. I am glad I did. I was deciding between the Romeo 5 and this sight. Price is was made my decision and I’m glad it did. Very accurate.
