Vortex Venom

Ruger 57 with vortex venom red dot

Why we pick this one - The Vortex Venom is a rapid target acquisition sight just like the Leupold DeltaPoint Pro body profile. Overall, the Vortex Venom is by far the large FOV sight without breaking the bank for just under $250.

Wide field of view - Get on target fast by looking through a big window with thin lens hood frame for tracking the reticle better and not get lost.

Top-Loading Battery Access - Swap the battery right from the top without removing the whole sight or having to re-zero the sight

What people are saying about it -  Target acquisition is fast along with the bright fiber optic front sight that makes shooting the Ruger 57 an amazing experience.

Before you order this optic for the first time for your Ruger 57, be sure to get the adapter plate also and we will put the link to the product page at the end of the page
