Vortex Strike Eagle - Has anyone broken one?

Post by Ltaitore » 22 Apr 2019, 22:42

I put a Vortex Strike Eagle on my FN carbine a while back and really like the sight. So far after a few hundred rounds and bouncing around in the truck it hasn't shifted zero or suffered any damage. The BDC reticle works well for my 77gr loads out to 300 yards and I rarely shoot further than that, up close my brain comprehends "put the horseshoe on the target and pull the trigger" so that works too. I'm not a Paratrooper/SWAT/Snake Eater, I just need a decent optic not a $1,400 Razor.

I have a second 16" carbine that is a near copy of the FN and I'm thinking of putting a second Strike Eagle on it too. "One is none, Two is one."

They've been around two + years now, has anyone managed to damage or destroy a Strike Eagle? If so tell us how you did it.

I've seen multiple break at 3Gun.

That said, many are still working.
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
The shooter will always matter more than the gear ever will.
Stop relying on others to do the work for you.
Shoot more, worry less.
