Don’t miss a thing with both-eyes-open shooting. Push-button activation lets you choose between green, red, or black reticle settings. One lithium battery yields up to 5,000+ hours of service. The black reticle is etched onto the prism, so you can use the optic even without battery power.
Easy-to-see reticle hash marks offer trajectory compensation to 600 yards. Lens coatings are maximized for glare resistance and low-light operation, and the sight is night-vision compatible.
Its compact design leaves room on your rail for a flip-out AR-Tripler™.
The rugged construction of this close quarter battle (CQB) sight is the toughest you’ll find:

  • Hand-fitted to the tightest, shock-resistant tolerances
  • Waterproof and fogproof
  • Tethered caps and flip-up lens covers

Feel confident with the protection of the Burris Forever Warranty™.

AR-1X™ is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Quality Optic! After purchasing the optic, installing on my Tavor, I am pleased as heck! Just the right height for the Tavor and when paired with the 3x magnifier, gives both short and medium-longish range accuracy. Very clear and sharp. Would like to have an Anti Reflection Device for it. Not sure if the available one will fit or not. Great Burris optics and a very good price point for the quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Hard to Find! I've been trying to buy a second one of these and can't find it anywhere. Other than that, this optics works as advertised, and fits my AR exactly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bought this a while back. Loved it at first till recently. Stopped holding a zero... Hopefully get it send into Burris so they can fix it.

Any updates as to availability? The major internet retailers, Brownell, Optics Planet, etc, do not have this in stock and have no estimated date of availability. Thanks in advance for any word.

Asked by: Dan_M
The AR-1X does not have an official release date yet, but it is intended to hit store shelves before the end of 2016

Can iron sights be used with the AR-1X?

Asked by: clearfrontsight03
They can be, however they would likely interfere with the utility of the Ballistic CQ-1X reticle.

Is the ARX1 the only Sight that works with the Burris AR Tripler 3x Magnifier 300212?

Asked by: lpontarelli
Technically the AR-F3 will also work. The Tripler was designed back when we had several 1x Red Dot Sights, including the AR-132, Speeddot 135, and XTS 135- but all of those models have since been discontinued.
