AR-1X™

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 Combo Kit version includes the AR-1X, AR-Tripler, and Quick Detach AR-Pivot Ring.

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 4.5 out of 5 by 244.
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 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 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 Burris AR 3X Magnafier Before I bought this I sighted in my EoTECH 512 with no Magnafier. I had a hard time shooting a good group. After installing this on my SIG556xi, i used the magnafier to first bore sight my Red dot then continued using it to fine tune the adjustment. After I was finished, I was shooting 1.5" groups at 100 yards. I would like to address the mounting. I have heard these mount lose but if you read the manual you will see there is a wheel to adjust the mount for a perfect fit. Another complaint I have read is the thumb latch release dows not alwas function well if you don't ease it into the locking position. I hant eased my latch releas once and this performed flawlessly. Finaly I want to add the opics are very good and provide a wide FOV at 100 yards.

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 5 out of 5 by from Works just as well as more expensive magnifiers. The AR Tripler is a nice addition to my rifle. It is sturdy, has a very clear sight picture & field of view. The quick detach is adjustable & mounts securely to the rail, so there is not any unwanted movement. It flips to the side just the right amount, enough to get out of the line of sight but, not so far to the side that it will be hit by ejected brass. The mount itself is small & does not take up much rail space so it can easily fit between the primary optic & a back up iron sight. I only have two criticisms of the optic. Flipping the magnifier to the side can be a little awkward since the ring mount is not spring loaded & I wish the eye relief was at least one inch longer. However, the overall quality can not be beat for the price compared to other magnifiers in this class.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CANTED reticle fix- DIY To all the complaints about A CANTED reticle, you see those two tightening knobs on the left of your mount? Get a wrench and actually tighten down on them. This fixes your canted reticle. It's by design. And I can see by Google's predictive suggestions when you start typing "canted reticle", that Vortex, Primary Arms, and ACOG users have also had this same problem. Those are all also Prism style scopes, meaning it's not the device, it's a user error when not mounting with enough torque. I'm also guilty, but upon seeing A BURRIS Rep's reply to another complaint about the CANTED reticle, I tried their suggestion, and it worked.

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.

Can the at-332 be mounted on a shotgun&nbsp;

Asked by: Sickoduck
Yes it can, however eye relief being on the short end it is might prove problematic.

One reviewer claims the optic is 2.34 magnification instead of 3. I would just like to ask Burris if this is actually the case?

Asked by: Jacob
I have never heard that one before. It is and always has been a 3 power.

looking to get a EOTech XPS3 was wondering if it would fit the burris 332 picatinny rail

Asked by: Joefro007
It will not fit on top as it is far too large.

Will an AR Tripler work effectively behind a FastFire3? I'm thinking of mounting an FF3 on the forward receiver ring on a bolt rifle, and then occasionally adding a Tripler on the aft receiver ring. ??

Asked by: Chris4444
Hello, Good Question! In theory this could work. The only thing I could see being a hindrance would be matching the heights, and having them close enough together. If too far away, the tripler would make the dot appear blurry. If you end up having trouble getting them the correct height, you could use the AR-F3 mount and an Extra High 30mm ring. That would mimic the setup on an AR-15. (in terms of height) If you end up with an issue in spacing, you could try an extension or cantilever scope ring for the tripler. Good Luck!

The AR-536 is recoil tested to handle up to a 50 caliber. It will have no problem with the recoil of a .308
