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.

BEST ANSWER: Off your website Enter an answer to this question.
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.
Rarnold15 on Apr 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If you mount to a flat top AR the red got will project right at the top of your A2 front sight
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?

BEST ANSWER: Yes, it can be mounted on a carry handle. No, it should not be mounted on a carry handle (Just so goofy). You need to buy a rail attachment, UTG makes one.
What kind of base does it take to mount on a R1 10mm 1911 style ??
Deadly on Nov 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would not use this on a 1911
How tall does it sit from rail platform to middle of the sight?
kyle a on Dec 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Depends. This comes with a base plate so you can have true co-witness or riser plate for 1/3 co-witness.

Good quality, design takes up too my field of view tho.
It’s a good sight but I prefer my trs-25 with it’s glue mark on the inside and for one reason: the spark takes up a ton of peripheral while leaving almost a peep hole to acquire your target.

Great Red Dot for little price.
Great site for what I paid clear glass. Has held zero with 300aac and 556 with a binary trigger. Only down side is Battery life but love that it uses a common triple A Battery.

Good sturdy piece of gear love the fact that takes regular batteries that are easily accessible and that are not expensive
Ran this piece of gear on my Roni with my Glock 22 mounted in it it perform perfectly and I would really like to see about getting another one when one goes on sale.
Here we have the sparc AR living on top of a micro Roni Glock chassis system. Worked perfectly.

If you are on a tight budget you absolutely can not go wrong investing in anything Vortex! Well worth your hard earned dollars!
Votex in my opinion is the best bang for your buck! I had no problem zeroing my red dot and so far it has held it’s zero through five tactical rifle classes! Let’s not forget about the no questions asked amazing Vortex lifetime transferable warranty! Poor mans aim point but with training can be just as effective!

Wouldn't buy any other 1× red dot
This thing is AWESOME I now have 2 of them and will probably buy 1 or 2 more for different guns. Vortex customer service is awesome and their warranty is NO B.S. I had the lens cap strap which is attached to the rubber cover break off of the cover (they've since redesigned it), emailed Vortex including a picture, and a new cover with the newly designed straps in my mailbox days later. Other than that, zero issues whatsoever with either of the 2 I have

Ready for duty
I have one on my duty rifle and one on my home defense gun. Can’t beat the combination of value and quality of a Vortex product.
