Great Product, will probably buy another

by wknd wrior, from United States, CO Written on January 29, 2015
This was my first reflex sight and I was extremely happy with it. The parallax is minimal and if you really want an accurate long range sight buy a high quality scope. But for short and mid range this is perfect for rapid plinking. I now own an eotech holosight but I actually prefer this for most of my plinking fun. Its a great balance of performance for cost and at close range out to about 100 yards both seem to have comparable parallax when rested.

For those with astigmatism you will want to either wear your corrective lenses or understand what your astigmatism does to the red dot so you know what point to use for aiming.

Compared to the eotech I love the auto gain function. It takes a second to adjust but rarely will this prove problematic even going from outside to clearing rooms (in airsoft)

My only dings against this are that I would have preferred the protective cover be a bit thicker/beefier and have a pyrex "impact resistant" clear window rather than the plastic window for protecting the optic. This complaint is mainly driven by my periodic use of this sight on an airsoft toy. But Ive modified the cover to take hits. With the cover on the side button is a bit hard to push with beefy fingers.

I withhold 5 stars for things that are absolutely perfect but this gets pretty close...
Pros:
  • Low profile
  • small, light, affordable, high quality, stable(223 tested)
Cons:
  • 3moa dot (I want smaller)
  • semi flimsy protective cover
Best Used for:
  • general shooting short-mid range
  • airsoft (with protective cover upgraded)

Burris FastFire III Red Dot Reflex Sight

by Steve, from United States, FL Written on January 24, 2015
Absolutely AWESOME! It's even better than I expected it to be. The only thing I would recommend is that if you are mounting it on a picatinney rail for a rifle you need to order the Burris AR-F3 AR Tactical Flat Top FastFire II & III Mount with it if you want to have co-witness with your iron sites. No complaints and highly recommend this product and Optics Planet is the place to go when buying accessories for your weapons!...

Not woth your money AT ALL!

by Richard Lee, from United States, CA Written on January 18, 2015
Ok, before i start, the only reason I gave Burris Fastfire III one star is because it does stay zeroed for that one day of shooting. And the sunshade does help in bright light conditions. Other than those two things I mentioned, the Burris Fastfire III is horrible.
I dont really know where to start so I'm just goin to list in a random order. 1.Sunburst/starburst effect on red dot is very bad. 2. The slots on elevation and windage screws are very tiny.. Need to have one of those cheap mini screwdrivers with u. My pocket knife ended up scratching the heck out of finish. 3. Sight goes off zero from packaging and transporting to and from range, so I need to zero everytime I want to shoot. The elevation and windage screws not not click and stay in position. They will move if something brushes up against it. 4.And the big deal breaker is that Burris' Customer Service and Tech Support are HORRIBLE!!! It is IMPOSSIBLE to get a hold of someone on the phone. It took 2 voice messages and an email for them to get back to me... After 5 days. Their response to the delay was understaffing due to holidays.. So i called them back after the holidays. Guess what? IMPOSSIBLE to get someone on phone. I waited over 20 minutes on three different calls. I wish I could get a refund....

Fast Fire III

by JimS, from United States, CO Written on January 16, 2015
I found this to have one of the nicest sets of features for an economical red dot. Three magnitudes of brightness the user controls with a tap of a button, set on lowest, dot can be seen at night in darkness. Easy to zero with included tools. Nice protective cover can shoot with in place.
The Picatinny Mount accessory included didn't fit my Buckmark's Picatinny rail. Kindly, Burris customer service rep pointed out, mine was not a true Picatinny … recommended that I grind either the rail (yikes!) or the attach/indexing pin supplied. With a bit of grinding to the pin, wha-la…excellent secure fit. Attaches to Buckmark rail without any damage to my gun. Nice....

Burris FastFire III Red Dot Reflex Sight

by Joe, from United States, IA Written on December 21, 2014
Great product, bought it for 3-gun matches, 8 moa dot works great on those 10 to 40 yard shots. Couldn't be happier. Did a lot of on line reviews before deciding on the product. There ws only one place to start shopping was Optics Planet. Best price and fast delivery. Thank you....

My Brown Gun Makes Your Black Gun Pee Itself

by ZZZILLA, from United States, TX Written on November 28, 2014
Bought this red dot for plinking and close range fun for my restored M1 Garand. Im left handed so I went with a 3-12x Burris handgun scope on a Ultimak Picatinny foreward rail. The red dot sets on top of the scope using Burris extreme low rings with the half picatinny ring for the red dot. Its my left handed dream gun. This is a scout gun that can reach out and touch its target, short or extreme long range....

Small, Light, and Accurate

by Woodruff Hunter, from United States, WI Written on September 30, 2014
I have the Fastfire III mounted on top of my magnified optic on a 300 BLK pistol. At 50 yards it will shoot 1+" groups and at 25 yards groups the size of a nickel, 5 shots into 1 big ragged hole. These groups surprised me considering they are being aimed with 55 year old farsighted eyes without glasses. I'm very happy....
