Exclamation Vortex spitfire AR 1x prism scope

I recently purchased a new vortex spitfire and wanted to put it on my WASR with a Midwest industry side mount.
Any info on reliability or functionality? Trying to figure out of I made a good decision. It might just be my eyes but i almost feel like I see a negative magnification.
Also I did have an astigmatism so that's why I went with a low powered prism scope instead of a red dot.
Strongly considering changing it for the PA 2x

Pretty sure, lots of people use higher power(2x-4x) for cqb without problems.

NVM !! As soon as I put it on I knew there were going to be issues. The optic itself is great but because of the built in riser it sits higher then giraffe pussy lol I don't even think a cheek riser would work. Taking it back tomorrow. Any suggestions on a good low powered prism?

The regular (non-AR) model Spitfire is kick-ass. Removable riser. SPR-1301. Cabela's was blowing them out at $148 a couple weeks ago.

Primary arms is releasing their new 1x prism (cyclops) by April I believe. It takes standard Aimpoint Micro patterned mounts so it would sit low on a side rail etc. Might be worth waiting for

MSRP of $239 but im sure they will be had for less

I went to the primary arms store here in Houston, Texas and they said the Cyclops won't be out till late next month. It will have a T1 mounting system and the ACSS. ill be picking one up as soon as they release.

I think the riser is removable if it’s the old model.

it is on the old one but not the new one. The spitfire AR version takes a AAA battery that is on the riser witch is one whole piece.

Gotcha - I should have read the entire thread name

My only complaint with the old model is the reticle isnít the best, wish they just ripped off the Eotech reticle.
