The Vortex Spitfire HD Gen II features an etched reticle.

Prism scope optics on AR-style rifles deliver features few optics can match. When it comes to pure speed, they remain tough to beat. Now Vortex announces its newest offering, the Spitfire HD. And whether for duty, defense or sport, there’s plenty to like about the new Vortex Spitfire HD Gen II.

Vortex Spitfire HD Gen II

The Gen II Spitfire comes more sleek than ever before. It incorporates exposed turrets, removing caps. HD optics improve resolution and cut chromatic aberration, along with size and weight, according to Vortex.

Inside, an AR-BDC4 reticle subtends with most 5.56 cartridges. The system delivers fast holdovers at known distances. But the prism design also includes an etched reticle, giving shooters speed and versatility. Better still, it provides a clear aiming point should illumination go down. For those on duty, the Spitfire HD Gen II even comes night vision compatible.

Models come in both 3X and 5X, while a multi-height mounting system enables shooters setup their optic to fit. With the etched reticle system, the Spitfire prism delivers a backup reticle that makes it stand out. Whether for duty, defense or competition, the Spitfire deserves a look.

The 3X Spitfire HD retails for $549.99, while the 5X variant retails for $649.99. For even more info, please visit
