Excellent packaging and right size/weight, but does not work

by Mac, from United States, MI Written on March 30, 2015
Fast delivery from Optics and the sight's box was very well packaged. Inside of the sight's box each part was encased in foam. The optional Picatinny mount clearly is able also to be used with a weaver base - not clear from the advertisements. Do not put on the sunshade unless you need it! It is almost impossible to get back off. Includes a wrench for the counter sunk screws that attach the sight to its mount - included three screws and a very small blade screwdriver for adjusting up/down, left right. Battery compartment needs a screwdriver with a narrow shaft. However, the sight just does not work. The little included manual indicates that the battery should be mounted with plus terminal up - and shows a picture with + up. Battery terminals are at the bottom of the battery compartment for negative and around the edge of the battery compartment for positive. The battery is loose inside of its compartment. A paper shim on one side of the battery did not help - thought it would make the positive connection more effective. Battery measures, open circuit, just over 3 volts on a Fluke meter.
Burris has a "Forever Warranty," but the box contends only one year. Had thought to buy several of these sights, but need to search for a small red-dot that works even if more expensive as the cost to me of dealing with DOA is far more than the cost of the sight....
Pros:
  • Very well packaged and includes what is needed
Cons:
  • Does not work at all
Would recommend: No

Too . . . little.

by sr, from United States, TX Written on March 24, 2015
Much smaller than I expected. Red dot was a fuzz ball - there was no way to focus the image for my vision. Would not come close to zero with only about 1/4 the travel I needed to zero.

Returned it, no issues.
I'd recommend this vendor, but I'd recommend you purchase a different Red Dot....
Pros:
  • light weight
  • easy return process
Cons:
  • very small
  • fuzzy red dot
  • could not zero
  • battery screw cap difficult
Best Used for:
  • Paperweight
Would recommend: No

Burris FF III

by Tom, from United States, AL Written on March 24, 2015
Arrived in good time, New. Easy to install and operate. It was very easy to zero it using a borescope at 25 yards. My pistol is now a tack driver. I use it on one of the three fixed sett, Medium, Low) intensity settings. It is taking some getting used to finding the dot versus lining up iron sights....

Cover misses the point

by JRocks, from United States, MS Written on March 22, 2015
Nice sight. Good that you bave separate modes. But automatic seems to work well. The giant sunshade /cover misses the point if a small sight. They should include the small cover that would keep its compact lines when pistol mounted....

Burris Fastfire III Red Dot Site

by Brian, from United States, NH Written on March 18, 2015
I installed this red dot sight on a Browning Buckmark 22 Camper handgun using a scope mount and am happy with the results. Sighted in at 10 yards the groups are low at 5 yards so I would like to see a mounting option that gets the site lower to the barrel. I use the Buckmark for Hair hunting in the winter and find the red dot much quicker to get on target. The lowest brightness settings are best for accuracy. The brightest settings are fuzzy around the edges....
Pros:
  • Compact Size
  • Good quality.
Cons:
  • None
Best Used for:
  • All uses
Would recommend: Yes

Awsome product

by Comifornia resident, from United States, CA Written on March 16, 2015
I like the fast fire 3 it mounted perfectly with the Burris ar-f3 mount on my m&p15 love the sight and the mount offers extra pertection and co-sights perfectly with my iron sights. I got the one that comes with the picatiney mount but it wouldent co sight so I ordered the other mount and perfection. My suggestion would be order the sight without the mount and buy the ar-f3 mount seperatly, kinda pricey but deffinitly worth it....

Burris Fast Fire III

by Moose, from United States, GA Written on March 16, 2015
This is an awesome red dot sight. It is extremely easy to mount. Sight adjustments can be made quickly. The greatest advantage is being able to change the battery from the top without having to take scope off gun. I highly recommend this sight to anyone....

Burris FastFire III

by trex, from United States, MI Written on February 23, 2015
Easy to install and sight in. The wind age & elevation detentes work well and all adjustments hold.The sun shade worked well and helps to keep the sight clean. The star burst effect is easy to control with the brightness of the red dot and is mostly due to my glasses and eyes. I would recommend to a friend....

Excellent Pistol Optic

by Fran, from United States, SC Written on February 14, 2015
The Burris Fastfire III melded in the slide of my G20 is a great set up. Red dot is easy to acquire, especially with suppressor sights from Ameriglo as back up iron sights. The red dot is bright and well defined. I never had to turn a dial to zero at 25 yards. Dead on out of the box. With extended mag and Streamlight TLR 3, this is my hog and bear rig. As usual, it was all set up with equipment from Optics Planet. Great selection, price and service! Took advantage of tech support to address an application issue. Got great guidance....
Pros:
  • compact
  • easy to zero and to operate
  • easy to acquire sight picture
  • bright, distinct red dot
Cons:
  • None.
Would recommend: Yes

Easy to use, effective

by LJ, from United States, PA Written on February 9, 2015
My first red dot, but not my last. This Sight is exactly as advertized and an amazing tool for a geezer with Old Eyes. Would prefer more brightness settings, but it does what they promised and what I paid for. Battery removal easy, adjustment dials click you right in in no time. Used with a boresight laser, its literally a two minute job sighting in. The time and practice part comes with learning how to raise your firearm correctly while looking at the target/threat and quickly having the dot "appear", with both eyes open. Working on it.
Using on Sig P226 SSE and P229 ESE with UM Tactical mount....
Pros:
  • None
Cons:
  • none... yet
