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 ComboKit 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 237.
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 Top Quality Optic! After purchasing the optic, installing on my Tavor, I am pleased as heck! Just the right height for the Tavor and when paired with the 3x magnifier, gives both short and medium-longish range accuracy. Very clear and sharp. Would like to have an Anti Reflection Device for it. Not sure if the available one will fit or not. Great Burris optics and a very good price point for the quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little scope with clear glass I got the Burris AR 332 on sale and with a mail in rebate. I think I ended up paying around 120 dollars (rebate pending). I was expecting to be disappointed because the box the scope came in looked like that of a cheaper low quality scope. I mounted the scope on my 16 inch AR 15. The glass was clear and the reticle was designed well. I like how the reticle works with or without illumination. As opposed to an Aim point, if the batteries are dead so is your optic. The scope is easy to operate and is suitable at close range out to 300 + yards. I easily hit a 12inch steel plate at 325 yards. Overall, this scope is a great value. Still waiting for my 100 dollar rebate though (over 90 days)

Will this work with a 1x prismatic optic such as your AR-1X?

Asked by: 1x prism user
Yes it will.
Answered by: Burris Support
Date published: 2018-10-03

1): Where is the battery cap on the AR-536 Prism Sight (with CQ Reticle)? 2): Do the BDC dots apply for 7.62 x 39, or only 5.56 mm? If BDC applies to both 7.62 x 39 AND 5.56 mm, does shooter assume bullet drop ballistics are identical?

Asked by: Larry Gato
Hello, The battery cap is on the top of the illumination dial. The reticle is not caliber specific but in generic MOA increments which will work well with either caliber when zeroed at 200 yards.

I recently purchased the AR332 kit, it has a hood for the fast fire red dot and a threaded prism. Not really sure how this fits onto the scope and the true purpose. Would you please give explanation or have a tutorial on fit and function.

Asked by: Goody56
Hello, The hood is to protect the fastfire, and the other item is an Anti Reflective Device. It threads into the objective of the AR332 to reduce reflection from the optic.

is the mount for the ar tripler set up for lower 1/3 or absolute cowitness? I am looking to see if this will work with my trijicon mro on a lower 1/3 mount.

Asked by: Ben R
They are set up for Absolute with our ring, but you can get 1/3rd mounts aftermarket.

Hello. I want to use it on a MP5 clone, the GSG 522. I´m not sure if the height of the scope is big enough to see over the front sight?! Can you help me with this. Thanks a lot

Asked by: raph
You will see over the front sight, but the eye relief might be short on that setup.
