One of the great strengths of an AR-pattern rifle is that it can be adapted to almost any situation. From different barrels to different stocks to complete caliber changes, the AR can just about do it all.

That same flexibility and adaptability is what’s inside the new Strike Eagle 1-8×24 FFP scope from Vortex Optics. This new optic the gives you the fast target acquisition and close quarters utility of a red dot optic at 1 power with the consistent holdovers through its entire magnification range of a First Focal Plane (FFP) scope.

The Strike Eagle 1-8×24 FFP has an EBR-8 illuminated reticle that provides bright illumination for red dot-like speed at 1x and precise holdovers out to 600 yards. The reticle is specifically designed around the .223/.556 caliber, and, when combined with the First Focal Plane optical design and built-in ranging feature, becomes an extremely versatile and accurate optic.

The scope has 9 daylight and 2 night-vision settings, that allows you to dial in the center interrupted circle and dot to match the existing lighting conditions. The scope also features an XD optical system with fully multi-coated lenses deliver a crisp sight picture to pick out targets faster.

The 30mm tube is made of aircraft grade aluminum to stand up to getting knocked around in the field, and the capped turrets keep your zero locked in for consistent adjustments. The included throw lever makes for easy and fast magnification changes, making sure you’re ready for any shot at any distance.
