AR-536 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 234.
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)

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.

It will work fine. All Burris Optics are recoil rated beyond .50 BMG.

What is the range of this scope and will it work with the Tripler or night vision?

Asked by: MikeCabot
Hello, There is no way to really assign a range to an optic. It comes down to the shooter, eyesight, targets, rifle, ammo, etc. It will not work with the tripler as it is already magnified. You should be able to use a night vision device with no problem.

I see your 536 is marketed for AR 15s, but was wondering if you had a similar style of product that is more suited for .308? I have a .308 "battle rifle" I'm not looking for sub 2 MOA, but would like to consistently hit steel at 400-600 yards.

Asked by: Inkedup
Yes it will work fine on a .308.
