AR-332™

The AR-332 is designed for lawmen, military personnel, and competitive shooters who want additional range from a compact, fast-acquisition optic.

The rotary, 10-position power selector allows quick changes from red to green powered reticle, or clear, crisp black reticle when power is off.   With five red and five green power levels, all lighting conditions can be quickly matched.  A CR2032 battery powers the reticle.

The Ballistic CQ™ reticle features holdover dots good out to 600 yards. They work best with 5.56 or 7.62 ammunition.

Picatinny rails allow piggybacking of additional sights, lasers or lights. The entire, rugged design is backed by the Burris Forever Warranty™.

The perfect AR Scope for quick target acquistion, coupled with a bit more range.

The AR-332 Combo Kit includes the AR-332, a 3-MOA Fastfire 3, and an ARD anti-reflection device. It comes in a rugged, reusable carry case.

1.    Why does my reticle look canted?

The reticle will appear canted until the mounting bolts are torqued to 65” pounds, this is by design.

2.    What specific load is the reticle calibrated for?

The 5.56 is averaged between the 55gr M193 and 62gr M855 NATO cartridges, and the 7.62 is averaged between 147gr and 168gr. (7.62x51mm NATO).

3.    Can I remove the picatinny segments on my scope?

Yes the picatinny sections can be removed, this will not damage the scope and will not void the warranty.

4.    What is this little extra screw?

The extra screw that came with the sight is for mounting the sight to an AR platform rifle with a carry handle. To use this, remove the two base mounting screws with a flathead screwdriver, and remove the base. Set the optic in the carry handle, thread and tighten the screw into the bottom of the sight, through the hole in the carry handle. The two base mounting screws can be found by flipping the sight upside down.

5.    Why did my mount come loose?

The sight can be “shot loose” if insufficient torque is applied. It is crucial that 65 inch-pounds of torque be applied to the two base mounting nuts. As long as the nuts are torqued to spec, you will not need Loctite.

AR-332™ is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 255.
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 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 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 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.

I purchased my Burris AR-332 about a year ago. I like it but the reticle is offset to the left and all who look at it say the same. It's mounted and torqued as per instructions but it's just wrong and really bothers me. What's the fix? Thanks. John H.

What are the main differences between the AR-1X & AR 3X Tripler Matte ?? I want the flip up lens covers, the green colored sights and once it's mounted on my gun I have no intention of removing it. Please advise me of the differences in units. Thanks.

Asked by: swat419
Hello, The AR-1X is a sight, and the AR-3X Tripler is a magnifier. They are used in conjunction.

No, it should fit fine. You might just need to keep loosening the nuts until it fits.
