For AR and carbine shooters, the AR-F3 combines the FastFire™ III sight with the rugged AR-F3™ mount.

The FastFire sits low in the mount. Metal wings on each side of the lens protect the sight from impact or unintentional abuse.

A lower compartment offers convenient storage for a spare battery, open-end wrench, and Torx® wrench. Fits any Weaver or Picatinny-style base.

AR-F3™ is rated4.2857 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by fromFastFire III/MTAC combination for the AR-15A little over a year ago, I bought a Burris MTAC scope for my AR that came bundled with the FastFire red dot. Owing to family and work obligations, I didn't have the opportunity to really evaluate the system until quite recently. The scope was great, but I couldn't reliably turn on the FastFire, and it would often turn off with recoil. Not good. So I contacted Burris, concerned about a year having gone by. Burris immediately suggested I return the FastFire for evaluation and repair, preparing me for a several weeks turn around time. In a little more than a week, a new FastFire was returned to me (at no charge), and this one functions perfectly. I am very satisfied with the scope/dot combination. The quality and performance is top notch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fromAwesome red dotI have had this fastfire iii for about six months and have had it mounted on a 9mm slide, turkey gun 12ga 3 1/2 and my ar 15 and it works great on all of them

Rated 4 out of 5 by fromAwesome! When it worksFirst few times using the sight it was great. It maintained zero after two matches and then, snafu. Battery cover keps coming loose and had to shoot a 3 gun match guessing on sights. A little frustrating but it still gets 4 stars. One, the warranty, sent it back and they are repairing. Two, when it's on, it's on. Three, it is rugged and can handle match use. Four, with my eyesight going the way of the dinosaurs, well, it is awesome to use, even at 30 yards! Hope that helps!

Rated 1 out of 5 by fromFastFire IIIPurchased Sept. 3, and it still sits in the box . . . IN PIECES! Nothing tees me off more than buying a product unassembled. Couldn't open box at dealer due to the wrapping. Wouldn't have taken it if I'd known. First time I've bought a sight of any kind that came in a bundle.

can I mount this on top of my burris ar 536?

Asked by: erik
You can but I wouldn't recommend mounting the fastfire on top of your AR-536 with an ARF3 mount. This will cause the optic to be extremely high and you will have difficulty sighting it in. Instead, use the picatinny mount that comes with the fastfire.

How high does this setup sit about the pic rail it mounts to? Also is there a riser that would be compatible if needed? Thanks. 

Asked by: Iwork4Ruger
The center height of the optic will sit at 1.5". Currently there is not a riser solution to increase the height.

Burris AR-F3 Picatinny Mount vs. Burris Picatinny Protector Mount. Both will work with a Burris Fast Fire III Sight. So, what are the difference(s) between these two mounts?

Asked by: Paulie
The AR F3 mount is designed to be at the proper mounting height on an AR platform, plus it holds all the necessary tools to mount the optic to the mount, and the mount to the AR platform. The picatinny protector mount is recommend for most other weaver style or picatinny mounting applications not related to the AR platform.
