Vortex SPARC Solar

Iron sights on your rifle are borderline archaic at this point in the game — the red-dot revolution is in full swing. If you haven’t picked one up yet, check out Vortex Optics’ new SPARC Solar powered red dot ($400). This micro red dot sight harnesses the power of the sun to greatly increase battery life; up to 150,000 hours on a single CR2032 lithium battery. That’s about 17 years, seven more than the actual battery is rated for. Ten daytime illumination and two night-vision settings ensure the proper amount of brightness for any shooting condition. The SPARC features a 2 MOA dot for precision aiming, ideal for use on a general-purpose carbine, and it even comes with a height adjustable Picatinny mount, making it a turnkey solution.
