AR-1X™

Find a Dealer

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™.

AR-1X™ is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 287.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I own 3 of these. I bought one of these and put it on my Colt rifle. I liked it so much I bought another for my Armslte rifle and one for a carbine I built. I keep buying them. Everybody I take to the range who tries them likes them. These work well. That is the best endorsement I can give any product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy mounting and super clear glass This is one of those purchases that I am very happy I made As soon as I got it home I mounted the optic on my AR...what a breeze The supplied mount is perfect for the flat top on my weapon Glass is perfectly clear and comes with a great warranty I'm happy
Date published: 2017-04-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Primary Optic Excellent clarity very crisp sight picture. Having both red and green reticles plus the black non Illuminated reticle gives you options for all shooting conditions. Top nocth customer service, I accidentally over tightened one of the mounting bolts and it broke. I called customer service and they sent me a set of replacement bolts right away. The limited eye relief is my only complaint regarding this optic. It may not be the best of option for users that have a fixed or non adjustable stock.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product but.. I had a cheap magnifier before this one, it worked well enough. With the burris magnifier being almost an inch shorter than my cheap magnifier I'm finally able to have my red dot, magnifier and flip up rear sight. It's a nice clear magnifier, however I have a problem with the magnifier NOT coming with its own flip to the side mount. Luckily I had one because that cheap magnifier came with a terrible mount and purchased a separate, better mount instead. But overall it seems to be a great magnifier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CRYSTAL CLEAR & ACCURATE This is the best sight on the market. Like the old saying goes you get what you pay for. I can hit the bullseye @100 yards every time . This sight is so clear and the green/red/black reticle work great. I also love the drop compensation.
Date published: 2016-04-18
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Performance This sight has a major parallax problem. The slightest movement of your head causes the reticle to move all over the target. Short eye relief doesn't help. The reticle is slightly turned from upright so the holdover marks won't be accurate. I went from being very excited when purchasing to extremely disappointed when trying to sight in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome addition to my AR15 Due to multiple surgeries on my right eye forced me to put an optic on my AR-15, after many hours of scouring the internet looking at hundreds of scopes I settled on the Burris 332. Excited to add tbe Quickfire 3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ballistic CQ is a great feature I was looking for a scope that would be super clear and close at 100 yards and I found this one day while comparing many and instantly liked the way the 3 power brings it all in and the Ballistic CQ highlights the cross hairs either in either Red, Green or Black. I haven't been to the range to sight it in yet but its mounted and I've looked through it many times at 100 to 200 yard distances and it is perfect. I will sight it, in March and review it again after on the whole process.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks can be deceiving I bought this in December and today I finally had a chance to zero this puppy in. It was shooting too high and I started the adjustments and thats where the problem started. There is some kind of obstruction in the scope now. Not sure what it is but I cant see directly through it now. I will be sending it back first thing this week. I'm very disappointed because I was excited to finally have a chance to do some shooting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AR-332 Mounted fine and looks great on my rifle. I have had it at the range one time and it works. I would have rated it a 5 star but I have not yet received my $100 rebate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First AR scope Received the AR 332 as a gift, after looking it over at a local gun shop. It was mounted on an S&W M&P 15. A 3/4" riser was used to utilize the hole in the mount for magpul iron sights. The red or green dot is great for fast and close target acquisition. I like how the scope has a black dot as well, when battery is low or just don't need the red or green lighted reticle. Only problem was not checking the scope to mount screws, used loctite on screws while sighting in the scope.
Date published: 2014-10-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm now a loyal customer This is my first Burris purchase. I've always bought Primary Arms in the past. More often than not the PA products had problems. This optic is amazing. It's really high quality for the price and hold true once you sight it in. The price was great too. I think Burris will be on my short list going forward for optics. I took this to a Appleseed course after I installed it. It did great. The guy next to me had a ACOG which was much nicer, but not worth the 2K vs. what I had paid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good overall optic Nice optic overall, I would like to have more eye relief and a thinner reticle. Good build quality. I would like the rebate to take less time.
Date published: 2014-10-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install, very good clarity Great quality product, tough material making it outstanding in tactical situation, excellent clarity and easy to adjust, it is not too heavy and once mounted does provide with very good balance. The 3 colors of reticle are a great bonus, battery is easy to access and can be replace with ease, I mounted mine on a TAC 2 assault rifle and it look great and means by it's design, I have not wet used it a lot but so far it is way above some of the more expensive optics option.
Date published: 2015-02-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Midrange Optic Great optic/glass for the $$. Excellent combo of fixed magnification and dynamic reticle that bridges the mid-distance space and capability between a red dot and scope. Controls work well and are straightforward, red, green illum and etched reticle are a plus. Standard mount design and quality are only draw back as they cause scope to misalign/cant (left in my case) due to poor QA during machining. A shim between scope and mount centered the bubble, but a relook at mount design and manufacturing would solve the issue. 100yd sight in was spot on after four 3-round groups. With a 2.5" eye relief and fixed mount be sure to check your picatinny and cheek weld distance cause you're only going back as far as the last index and the scope doesn't overhang mount by much...not as critical for positioned vs dynamic shooting.
Date published: 2016-01-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sight, poor workmanship Very good sight. Mounted it on my AR 22LR upper. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is that after 50 rounds it came lose from the bottom mount. When I removed it from my rifle I found the screw that held it to the bottom mount had little or no blue lock tight on them. Also you would think Burris would use alan head screws. They used flat head screws. Hard to torque them properly. Make sure you check these screws before you mount the optical on your rifle.
Date published: 2016-08-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent clarity and features I purchased this sight to put on a 17HMR AR upper and it worked out great so far. I shot it in this morning at 50yds and had it centered on target in 15 shots. Excellent feature with the two color reticles and still there when off in black. Will be using as a hunting sight for the most part. The reason I did not give it 5 stars is that I have not tested it in the field yet and the reticle seems to be canted slightly, will have more to say after using it awhile longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for brush gun w/ long distance capability. This crystal clear optic is mounted on top of my .50 Beowulf I generally carry in the thick north woods of Michigan's upper peninsula. I mounted it specifically with I need quick target acquisition for short range shots. Although 60 yards has been the furthest I have taken game I have used this on the range effectively out to 200 yards and still crystal clear to perform drop compensation! Great product, as always. I should be getting my Droptine on the range soon!
Date published: 2018-10-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable, ease of use and rugged. Perfect addition to any AR close quarter to 100 yard no hassle use.
Date published: 2016-06-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Riflescope Mounts easily and is very secure using optional quick release base. Target acquired quickly and picture was clear and well defined. Zeroed easily. Side/top rails perfect for attachment of small tactical lights such as a TRL-1. Unable to mount steel backup sights due to short eye relief of scope. Black reticle's ability to function without batteries is excellent. For me, buying a more expensive scope would be a waste of money. This has done all I wanted it to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Burris AR332 I bought this for a Beretta CX4 40cal. It works great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised! Bought this scope for my wife's AR-15 which had a 4x9 variable. Took about ten rounds to zero in at 100 yds. Now she just places the center MOA dot where she wants the bullet to go and starts punching holes in the target. Over all we are very happy with this purchase. I did find that the windage and elevation screws where a bit difficult to adjust and to tell which is up/down and L/R. If this scope has tactical knobs I would have given it five stars.
Date published: 2015-03-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use optics Purchased this at Bass pro shop a few months ago. Very easy to mount on my AR-15 and was very simple to sight in at 50 yards. I like the fact that even if my battery dies I have a black sight with additional marks for further shots. It works so well my wife even loved using it. The dual colored lighting is available in three strengths and is very bright. Really love it. I just wish I had the funds for the next level up, that will be my next one.

The optic is set as far back as possible but still seems that I have hunch forward to get the right view through the optic. Any other options or accessories for mounting the optic farther back?

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!
