So I bought a red/green Strikefire at my local AR house a couple weeks ago for 149 (didnt know much about them at the time). Took it home and I loved it except for one thing, it wasnt all that bright in the CA sun. I did some research and found out that they make a newer red only version that is much brighter, local shop does not carry those. I called Vortex and told them my situation, the lady asked if it had been mounted already. I told her yes but no shooting was done with it, she put me on hold for about 20 seconds. She told me to send it back with a 25 dollar payment and they would send me the red dot only version. I got the new Strikefire in about 5 business days, and it is almost twice as bright as the red/green. Nice people to deal with, customer service picked up on like the 2nd ring. Just my .02 cents. I know were all guilty of spreading bad service news faster than the good news so there you go.
