Great Price - Vortex Strike Eagle 4-24x50



Log in to see fewer ads
I've never been a huge fan of Vortex optics based on the lower end products I've looked through. That is until now. I recently picked up the 4-24x50 Strike Eagle on closeout for $299.99, and boy am I impressed. I've mounted it to one of my newer squirrel hunting rigs, got it sighted in, and was successful in the field with it yesterday (10/14). https://www.eurooptic.com/Vortex-Strike-Eagle-4-24x50-with-EBR-4-MOA-Riflescope-SE-1627.aspx





Upsides are:

Great glass for the money. Very clear, and large field of view

Turrets are easy to read. They are tactile, but not very audible.

Love the included sunshade and bikini lens cover

Illuminated reticle for early morning and late evening shooting is a must with a reticle this thin, so I love that it's included.

20y bottom parallax, which most Vortex optics have a bottom of 50y, which makes it a no go for a squirrel hunter like myself.

Lot's of holdover's in the reticle. Pairs nicely with iStrelok.



Downsides:

Heavy at 25+ ozs.

Adjustments are a little stiff, but loosen with a little work.

Parallax isn't marked other than 20y bottom end.

Turrets aren't audible like I like, but I can live with it.



If that model is too heavy and has too much magnification you can step down to the smaller 3-18x44 https://www.eurooptic.com/Vortex-Strike-Eagle-3-18x44-with-EBR-4-MOA-Riflescope-SE-1626.aspx





I was pretty successful in my opening day squirrel hunt with this optic. I did use the IL reticle both in the early morning and to close out the afternoon. I'm still shocked at how nice it is for what they are asking for it. Unfortunately it's been discontinued, and I'm not sure why? I should probably score another before they all get gone. Maybe for another future squirrel rifle.....

Thanks for the tip. I just grabbed my second one for about $150 less than I paid for the first one over a year ago. (Of course, now I need to go rifle shopping to find it a playmate!)

I've been quite pleased with the Strike Eagle and, like you, am not sure why Vortex discontinued it.

Much obliged!

That’s a great position to be in. Nice to buy a scope and look some new “real estate” to put it on! Technically you’ve got $150 to go to that new rifle!
