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

It’s the simplest and most effective way to mount any FastFire™ sight on an AR flattop as a standalone sight or as a co-witness for iron sights.

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 rated4.3636 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 3 out of 5 by fromclear and crispI'd been wanting one for some time, finally took the leap. the box arrived a bit beat up, not bad though, all parts and equipment where in the box. two things stood out; 1 i know i'm a bit thick sometimes but I can't for the life of me figure out where the battery storage is. And 2 I'm the kind of guy who if I'm going to own something scratched and actually a little chewed up, I like to be the guy who does it first. Personalizing it so to speak. both the interior and exterior containers came shrink wrapped. So taking it back to the gun store and raising cain doesn't really excite me any. plus the young man who owns the shop is a good kid and it wasn't his fault in any way so why should I give him grief. If you'll notice both corners are nicked up and sharp

Rated 5 out of 5 by fromtakes a licking and keeps on tickingIfbought my fast fire six months ago. It sighted in as easy as any other red dot I have and is bright enough for any condition I have been in. When I was at my gun club last week the rifle that my ar-f3 was on feel out of the gun rack when I was at the bench shooting another rifle. The rifle with the ar-f3 on it fell about 4 feet and landed on concrete hitting the ar-f3 first. One of the protective wings was slightly bent in. Other than that the sight held zero and is working fine. I can't find any torture test reviews online for the fast fire 3 but if it can take that abuse and hold zero and work just fine I think that is all I can ask of a red dot sight to hold up to

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 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!

What is the battery life on the FF3

Asked by: tburiak
Battery life is entirely dependent upon usage - but it is normal to expect thousands of hours of battery life under normal operation

I am new to this obsession and upon doing some internet reading I do have a question?  Is there a magnifier available for this AR-F3 model and if so, what is the model?  I will be mounting this on an AR platform.  Thank you.

Asked by: Corey23
We would recommend taking a look at the Burris AR Tripler and pairing it with the Burris Pivot ring. http://www.burrisoptics.com/sights/ar-sights-series/ar-tripler http://www.burrisoptics.com/mounting-systems/mounts-and-bases/ar-pivot-ring-quick-detach

I'm buying an AR-F3 for my sons DPMS Panther.  Does he need a scope mount?  I know anything about ARs

Asked by: Jon54
No, nothing needed as long as the DPMS is a flat top.

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.
