AR-332™ is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 195.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from the acog you always wanted ever since i shot an ar with an acog i've wanted one, however i cannot afford the price, the 332 is the best piece of glass i could afford at the time and it is now one of the very few scopes i will never sell or get rid of. Great glass, i love the reticle, and that it can be lit with the green and red or left black. I did have one issue with the mount not being securely fastened to the scope, however some red locktite and i was in buisness. Although a heavy scope for being compact it has been very reliable at all times and weather conditions. I will always recommend this optic and the 5x model for anyone who wants quality, affordability, and performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for my Sig 716! Was looking for a good optic for my Sig 716, went through many different choices but none satisfied me more than the burris AR-332. It is "drop capable" for the 308/7.62x51 ammunition .. so thats what made me go for it, and it has a lower cost than most competitors with the same type of features. took it to the range and was able to reapeativly put five round groups within 1.50 moa .... I do wish it had a lil bit larger reticle for those longer shots but It still does the job! Thank you Burris For a great optic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Optic! I purchased the Burris AR-332 about six months ago, I have it mounted on a Windham Weaponry MPC M4. Due to this being a 3-power optic, I choose to mount it to the detachable A3 carry handle so I would still have the stock iron sights should I need them. I've put approximately 600 rounds (.223 & 5.56) through the rifle since I added the AR-332 and I have been very happy with the overall quality of the optic and it's ability to hold "zero" since it's initial install. This is a high quality optic that allows you to engage in a CQB, yet still reach out a touch someone at 500 yards and at a great price to boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little scope with clear glass I got the Burris AR 332 on sale and with a mail in rebate. I think I ended up paying around 120 dollars (rebate pending). I was expecting to be disappointed because the box the scope came in looked like that of a cheaper low quality scope. I mounted the scope on my 16 inch AR 15. The glass was clear and the reticle was designed well. I like how the reticle works with or without illumination. As opposed to an Aim point, if the batteries are dead so is your optic. The scope is easy to operate and is suitable at close range out to 300 + yards. I easily hit a 12inch steel plate at 325 yards. Overall, this scope is a great value. Still waiting for my 100 dollar rebate though (over 90 days)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Marines Perspective I learned to shoot with iron sight when I went through Marine Boot camp over 20 years ago. At 41 I realized that I there is nothing wrong with getting a little help from a scope. I chose the Burris because a friend of mine had one. The image is clean and crisp. The lens caps are good quality, and I love that you can choose red or green illumination. I took it to the range and was able to zero out of the box with only 10-15 rounds without a bore-siter. My shot groups at 100 yards were pretty tight. I would highly recommend this sight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First impressions So I got this scope initially for its sturdy and tactical look on my new AR. It delivers on both counts. What I already knew at the store was that the reticle border(a black or lighted circle) was a little bit much for me. I looked at a competing scope though and it had no reticle at all, but was purely red dot. Couldn't even think of an acog so I went with the scope. So far I've gotten a fair and consistent zero and have been accurate at the indoor range. I look forward to putting it through its paces outdoors soon as it seems that natural light aids in the sight picture. Seems like a keeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving it I wanted a red dot type optic but not at the price of giving up magnification, this scope fills the gap between a 3x9 and 1X red dot. Easy to sight in and holds zero after being knocked around. Outside ring is a little thick for my needs and BDC is ok. Ideal scope for 0-200 yards which is perfect for my AR set up. 3X magnification is low enough to shoot quickly with both eyes open yet strong enough to identify game and make precision shots. Battery life is great, light is a little bright for low light applications. Glass is very clear and the field of view is great for hunting. Great product !!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not too shabby Pro's: Great sight for the money. Love the red and green illumination. The rails are easy to remove. Great lens caps included. Cons: A bit on the heavy side. Must be mounted as far back as possible due to a very short eye box. This really should come with the QD base standard.

Does Burris make any quick detach for this sight? I have One but I would like to put a quick detach on it for when i mount and store it.

At 58 my old eyes need help. I have a S&W M&P AR 15 Sport11 with rear MBUS flip up sight. I would like this 3x scope with one of the FastFind RDS. A few questions please. Do I need to remove the rear sight for eye relief and how good would that be?

Asked by: Golfnut
You can leave the rear sight, however if you have trouble with eye relief you might need to remove it. The reason being the AR series prism sights are made for 'nose to the charging handle' type shooting, and have very short eye relief.

I have an ar 332 sight and I absolutely love it, my question is could I pair it with the ar trippler to give it 6x. I do a lot of varmit and predator hunting routinely over 300 yards but with big distances small bodies become smaller. 

Asked by: Joe83
I paired the ar 332 with the tripler, the picture is noticeably darker but otherwise very clear. Eye relief is a little less and a diligent cheek weld is required to maintain maximum field of view. The biggest issue is situating the ar 332 on the rail far enough forward ( limited eye relief) to place the tripler behind it. When you flip the magnifier out of the way or remove it, you really need to crane your neck forward to use the sight. The tripler also works well mounted in front of the 332, the difference being the reticle remains the same size while mounting behind enlarges it. I did have to play around with the focusing on both the trippler and the 332, but I managed to obtain a sharp reticle with the trippler in and out of engagement. As this set up is noticeably heavy I use the aimpoint twist off mount for the trippler to remove when not needed. Using this set up with the flip to side mount is very awkward because of the 332's short eye relief.

I understand that I can buy a quick release base for the optic separately. I'd like to use the QR base to remove the optic when I feel like shooting with the iron sights. Will I need to re-adjust the optics each time they're removed for iron sight shoots?

Asked by: Valistar
It depends. The QD mounts are designed to hold within 1 MOA. If 1 MOA accuracy is sufficient, you should not need to adjust your sight.

I'm interested in the 332 or the 536, what is the diff?  I'm mounting on an AR-15 and will shoot from 25-250 yds. Also will have a Fastfire 3, do I mount with one of these, or is it not needed?

Asked by: TTM333
AR-332 is a 3x optic with 32mm objective AR-536 is a 5x optic with 36mm objective Other than that, the models are practically identical. Both include small Picatinny rail sections for mounting the FastFire

went to buy this unit last night from a dealer. he took it straight out of the box for me it had never been open. upon looking through it i noticed the black reticle was tilted rather significantly to the left. is this fixable?

Asked by: mic6384
The reticles all look canted out of the box, this is by design. You need to apply 65 in-lbs of torque to the mounting screws, and this will straighten the scope, and in turn straighten the reticle.

I have purchased this optic for my LR-308. I was wondering if anyone has also used this optic for that gun and if so how did it do, or is this optic just designed for a .556 round?

Asked by: BOB1981
The AR-332 will work with most cartridges. I'd recommend having a look at our Ballistics Tools, where the Reticle Analysis section will show what the points of impact will be for that reticle with your specific cartridge.
