Additional Information
Make your AR, pistol, or shotgun even more poisonous with the Venom Red Dot Sight by Vortex. A 3 MOA dot promotes rapid target acquisition, while providing a precise point of aim to get shots down range and on target fast. Multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces increase light transmission for crystal-clear images. A premium wide-field lens produces exceptional edge-to-edge resolution. Choose between 10 levels of brightness in manual mode or switch to auto mode. The power and dot intensity controls are conveniently located on the left side of the unit for quick adjustment. Flush 1 MOA windage and elevation adjustments are super sleek and make sighting in a breeze.

The durable, machined aluminum housing is built in a one-piece chassis and ensures the unit will stand up to whatever you throw at it. O-ring sealed, the design prevents moisture, dust, and debris from penetrating for reliable performance in all environments. The rugged build is finished in a highly durable low-glare matte finish. An ultra-hard, scratch-resistant ArmorTek coating protects the exterior lenses from scratches, oil, and dirt. The Venom Red Dot Sight's unlimited eye relief provides rapid target acquisition. The 14-hour auto-shutdown feature maximizes battery life, with a typical battery life of 150 hours at maximum brightness and 30,000 hours at minimum brightness setting. The Venom Red Dot Sight includes a Picatinny mount, T-15 Torx Wrench, and CR1632 battery. Weight with Picatinny mount: 1.6 oz. Vortex VIP Unconditional Lifetime Warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Red Dot ever! I got my Venum in January. The Venum is the best Red Dot I have tried! I shoot IPSC in Open division and the Red Dot is mounted on my pistol and I shoot 9mm Major so the gun takes a beating. I like the Venum better then the Razor because of the low profile it has, and I like it better then the Viper because of the bigger "screen" on top af that it is waterproof. I have shoot with the Venum in indoor ranges with good and poor light, and running the Venum in Auto mode is just great, it adjusts the power of the dot automatically! Thanks for that. It´s the same when I shoot outdoors and if you get sun directly in the scope you can still see the dot. Very easy to change the battery without having to take the scope of. Covered by your VIP Warranty, what´s not to like!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Accurate Optic/Durability Issues I currently own 2 of the Venom sights and I've never had a problem with the sights holding a zero; which for me was the #1 concern with owning a red dot sight. I've used them on a 12ga semi shotgun, 375 H&H Magnum, 458 Win Mag, and various pistols. However, the 3 star rating is for the durability issues with the sights. One is currently mounted to a Springfield XDm 45 Comp and the brightness setting no longer works, it's stuck on the brightest setting. The 2nd sight is on a PMR-30 and the dot brightness flickers/changes while firing and does not adjust with the buttons. I will be using the Vortex warrenty to get repairs done to these sights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT AS A PISTOL OPTIC I purchased this to mount on my Walther Q5 Match. (Fits perfectly with the included Dr. Optic plate) It feels like cheating. Once you master the presentation of the firearm and can locate the dot you can't miss. GREAT quality. HIGHLY recommended. Easy access to battery with is a huge plus. Stop thinking about it and pick this up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME OPTIC! I received my 4th Venom (3 MOA) red dot about two weeks ago. As to no surprise, it went on the Smith 617 without a hitch and was sighted in by the end of the first cylinder. It's light, fast, reliable, and consistent. I always go with the 3 MOA version as I suffer from astigmatism in my dominant eye, which tends to make the dots a little larger for me. I have used the Venom on everything (shotguns, rifles, pistols, and revolvers) and in nearly all weather conditions and temperatures (-25 to 110). The dot is always there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The little dot that could I was told do not buy this dot for a carry optics gun for USPSA. I ended up going with it anyways because of my experience with other vortex products. Last year I put over 10,000 rounds with this slide mounted optic and still don't have an issue. It's all beat up from mistreating it during competition, but it still runs. I have made the change from CO to limited so I won't be running it in USPSA, but it is on my steel challenge rifle ready to go for this up and coming season. I have never had an issue with it and never saw the battery die. If you are looking for a solid dot, this is the one for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Put one on your turkey rig Bought one of these because I wanted a red dot for my shotgun that is only used for hunting turkeys and it has been an awesome addition. Easy to dial in and takes accuracy with a shotgun to a whole other level. My buddy liked it so much he also got one for his turkey rig. I wouldn't want to go without it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK, but nothing special at all... Got this over a year ago for my .22 Buckmaster. Fairly easy to install and zero, but now that my first battery has gone kaput, the failings of this unit have become very evident. First, it uses a non-standard 1632 battery which is not part of my usual range kit. Second, the placement of the battery door on the top of the scope right next to the lens means that almost anything you use to unscrew the compartment is bound to scratch the finish. Next, the detent of the battery door means that you had better be carrying the precise screwdriver to open said door. Very inconvenient and annoying. I will not blame Vortex for the battery failing just as I started my range session today. That's just my kharma...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing RDS! Bought this recently from Midway and had initially placed it in my G17MOS. Very nice optic currently being used cowitnessing my sights. Love the extra glass area making it easy for my eyes. The auto function is amazing and adjust the sights power smoothly when you use it either inside or outside. Also liked that the battery compartment was on top and easy to access. So far had run about 500+ rounds thru my G17 and several hundred more with my AR15 and it still is performing flawlessly. It came with a mount for my AR15 but i ended up buying a higher mount (but that's just my preference). The 3MOA i got was good for distance/longer shots when i mounted it on my AR15. Great value, quality and great performing RDS!
