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 rated4.3333 out of 5 by 6.
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 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.

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.
