And that’s what the SPARC delivers - all in a durable, lightweight, compact, and ultra-clean package.

Automatically returns to last dot intensity used when powered up.
Unlimited eye relief and parallax free, the SPARC gets shooters on target fast. Waterproof, fogproof and shockproof for ultimate durability. Unit automatically shuts off after 12 hours to prevent accidental battery rundown and operates using a common AAA battery. Duty rifle - home defense—recreation, the SPARC is built to handle all your red dot needs. The VMX-3T Magnifier is not recommended for use with the SPARC.
Dual use for Shooting Tactical / Hunting
Daylight Bright Red Dot Reticle
The daylight bright 2 MOA dot is fast and easy to use. Choose among ten variable illumination settings—the lowest two settings are night-vision compatible.
The key thing to remember when shooting with the SPARC red dot is to keep both of your eyes open! Shooting with both eyes open allows you to take full advantage of your peripheral vision to get on target very quickly. Eye placement is not critical. As long as you can see the dot, you’ll hit your target!
Windage and Elevation Adjustments
The SPARC red dot incorporates elevation and windage dials with audible clicks. Each small click will move the point-of-impact one Minute of Angle (MOA). 1 MOA will closely correspond to one inch at 100 yards, 1/2 inch at 50 yards, 1/4 inch at 25 yards, etc.
Adjust the elevation and windage settings:
1. Remove the dial covers. The battery cover may be used as a tool to loosen and tighten the dial covers.
2. Use the raised bars on the dial covers, coin or screw driver to make the adjustments.
3. Turn the adjustment dial in the appropriate direction as indicated by the arrows. Move the dials in the direction you wish the bullet’s point-of-impact to change.
Mounting the SPARC
The SPARC can be mounted at two heights, lower 1/3 cowitness and absolute co-witness. To mount it at lower 1/3, mount the sight as received. The optic center will be 40mm above the base surface. To mount for absolute co-witness you can remove the 3mm base shim. The optic center at absolute co-witness will be 37mm above the base surface.
To get the best results proper mounting is essential. Although not difficult, the correct steps must be followed. Your firearm will need to be equipped with a Picatinny or Weaver style rail/base.
1. Attach the SPARC to the rail/base with the adjustment control buttons facing the shooter and make sure the mount is solidly seated in the base groove. In order to prevent recoil injury, position the SPARC so you have at least four inches of eye relief.
2. Be sure the base clamp is hooked around the outside of the rail/base.
3. Press the SPARC downward and forward toward the muzzle. Then, firmly tighten the base clamp bolt using the hex wrench.
