Burris FastFire 3, great product. I would suggest using expediated shipping, the wait was horrible. I bought the fastfire 3 without the mount and the Ruger mount that replaces the rear metal dovetail sight. First, use a hard plastic screwdriver to remove the battery cap, anything else may mark the slot. The mount came with star washers that I didn't use. I was afraid they would leave too many marks. Blue Loctite will do the job. Although I had to tap the old metal sight out, the new dovetail base fits loose and is drawn upward when the FastFire 3 is tightened down, causing a clamping action. The battery is in and it's mounted, 5 minutes lost in anticipation. I turned it on and quickly ballparked the windage using the front sight and the back of the gun. At the range, using a gun rest, it took all of 2 minutes to zero in the elevation and fine tune the windage. This is my first red dot sight, so I don't have a usable comparison to offer. What I did do was look at other reflex sights, mostly for physical quality and found that, for me, the FastFire 3 surpasses all others. It installed and zeroed quickly, it didn't move or lose zero after a day at the range. Some of it's outstanding qualities are: looks awesome, small and lightweight, Bright and clear optics. The red dot, even on the lowest setting is easy see on target. Windage and elevation dials and markings make for easy zeroing. The top mount battery compartment is a must. A plus not found in lesser sights is that it's waterproof with a nitrogen back filled body to prevent internal fogging. I could go on, the bottom line is, the FastFire 3 is well worth the money for ease of use and durability. And don't forget, it looks so good.

The sight worked well for 3 months. I was impressed with how it improved my out of position shooting with my shotgun. I have it mounted on a SpeedBead on a Browning Maxus that use for turkey, goose and duck hunting. I put it on my shotgun for turkey season and tried it out on the trap ranged and was impressed. I do a lot of hunting out of a layout blind and I'm rarely in perfect position when taking a shot. a lot of time I'm shooting behind or at a awkward angle for goose and duck, so it makes it hard to have perfect sight alignment. The SpeedBead and fast fire eliminate the human error portion of those shots. where the red dot is is where it hits. I noticed that when i was shooting clays out of my layout blind at difficult angles I doubled my hits with this sight. Unfortunately right about the time early goose season started my sight started moving to the right little by little. I have it right above my front bead on my shotgun so its easy to see weather it moved. Every morning I would have to move it back to the left about 4-10 clicks. I verified the mount was secure and then place a dab of fingernail polish on the windage adjustment to see if that was moving. it turned out that the dot was moving and the windage adjustment was remaining in place. Fortunately Burris has an excellent warranty policy, I called them and had it shipped out today to have it replaced. We will see how quickly the return is and I will right a review on that also. I am hoping to have it back for opening day of duck season here in Michigan. I am really looking forward to hunting with this sight this year. If you asked me to right this review a month ago it would have been a easy 5 stars.

Bad switch

By 

from SW Washington

Comments about Burris Fastfire III Red Dot Sight:

New unit. Opened box, put in battery, pushed switch, nothing. Reinstalled battery, pushed switch, nothing. Wiggled finger on switch and unit came on. Had to use finger nail on center of switch to get it to occasionally change setting. Ended up removing battery to turn it off. I had high hopes for it. Hope things get fixed.

Perfect size for Handgun use...

By 

from AZ, United States

Comments about Burris Fastfire III Red Dot Sight:

I have owned and used 6 FF3's over the preceding years..I currently own three. I have had to send only one back in all that time, because of faulty workmanship etc...but overall I have had a good experince with these sights. I have them on a Buckmark .22, Ruger 22/45 .22 and a Glock MOS 19. The small size and light weight is a plus. The controls work well, the build is good,and the price point is fair. Unless you have a "real" need for a mil spec grade sight and abuse your firearms and sights, and are not just an armchair wannabe..this FF3 will serve you well under all but the most demanding conditions. I have them, I use them, they work. I would not hesitate to get another one.

Shutting off when I fire

By 

from Lehigh Valley, Pa

Comments about Burris Fastfire III Red Dot Sight:

This site has been awesome on my ruger 22/45 lite. Never and issue. All of a sudden and with a full battery the sight is turning itself off when I fire. I can shake it, tap it, and it stays on but when I shoot it is cutting off and I have to hit the on button to get it back on. Pain in the butt when trying to shoot steel.

Very clean dot

Comments about Burris Fastfire III Red Dot Sight:

Installed the Fast Fire III on my Ruger Mk 3 and immediately noticed the dot was much crisper and cleaner than the Trijicon dots I have. I wish I had found this product sooner than later. Much better quality and value. Keep up the good work RJP

Sight shut off unexpectedly during competition

By 

from Florida, United States

Comments about Burris Fastfire III Red Dot Sight:

My Burris Fastfire III 3MOA sight is about a month old. It's mounted to my S&W M&P 9L Performance Center 9mm pistol using Federal and Winchester 115GR FMJ RN ammo. Nothing out of the ordinary. I've shot about 400-600 rounds with it at the range and it was working fine but when I used it during a steel plate challenge outdoors it shut off unexpectedly two times 20 minutes apart during the competition. Not good. It was a hot sunny day. I a new competitive shooter and currently shoot 5 targets in roughly a 5-7 second average from a holster starting in the surrender position. The site is a little difficult to locate for the first shot but after that its right on. Both times it shut down I was on my second or third shot of the a stage. Can this sight handle this very basic usage? Does it need to be replaced? I like the Burris sight and the price is good but it has to be there when I need it. Thank God no-one was shooting back. Also, the red dot is blurry except when I dial down the brightness to the lowest setting. Is this normal? If it didn't shut off unexpectedly I would have given it 5 stars but now I'm being generous to give 2 stars.
