The law enforcement agency that I work for has a patrol rifle program. They issue DMRO M16A1 to each post and they must be signed in and out. The agency has authorized officers to carry their own rifles if they meet certain criteria. I selected to carry my own rifle and was on the hunt for an optic. I was looking for an optic that was in the reflex sight category, rugged, and didn’t break the bank. I selected the Vortex Strikefire II.
While in the military I used the Aimpoint CompM on my service rifle. I was sold on the reflex sight from then on. As a patrol officer my engagements with the patrol rifle will be from a close proximity which therefore, I did not select a powered optic. The Strikefire II offers a red or green dot with ten brightness settings. The 30mm tube offers clear visibility while on target and on sight. The Strikefire II is a great option for someone looking for a reflex sight.
