Default Burris fastfire III.....any opinions out there??

I am looking at something for my AR. Eotec 512, aim point pro, vortex strikefire, or Burris fastfire? I know someone has an opinion. Thanks

Eotec or Aim Point. Both brands are used by military/LEOs and can take a lot of wear and tear. High quality, very accurate and extremely reliable. Here is my range report on my Eotech.

Another + for an Eotech or Aim Point. Both optics can take a beating,and still perform excellent in harsh conditions. Battery life is outstanding in both also.

My AR is optic-less so far. I do have a Fastfire II on a pistol; I would look for a larger primary optic for the AR.

A friend who bought a Strikefire and then added an Aimpoint PRO tells me the Aimpoint is much better. PSA had 'em on sale for $349 last weekend.

Another friend with an EoTech loves it.

If you can afford it, go for the higher priced ones. I bought three Burris products, an FF 2 for the Mz's Buckmark, a 3 for my 22/45 and the 536 for my Mini, which is getting mounted and Dialed in Saturday.... So far not at all displeased with the FF's

I recently acquired a FF 2 for use on my GSG 1911 22. My 52 year old eyes can see the red dot very well, even on bright sunny days.

I have yet to have a bad experience with Burris products. I am sure you can spend more and get more, but Burris is hard to beat at their price point.

The FF 3 allows you to change the battery without removing the sight, that is a worthy upgrade.

As noted in other posts, IMMV.

I've got Burris Fast Fire 2's and 3's on 2 XD Tacticals, and on 2 XDM Competitions, can't remember which is on which just know the Tacticals and the Comps each have the same. Then I've got several .22 target pistols with them on there. Never had a minutes problem out of the first one and have yet to need to change a battery, and I shoot them a lot and forget to turn them off a lot so a lot of times they sit for hours before I pick them up to shoot that gun again and realize I left it on. For the price I don't think you can go wrong. Now I would like to try the Trijicon out and see how it compares. I don't see them performing any better I'd just like to try one out.

Have an FF2. Have moved it around on different guns. Right now it's mounted of my Taurus PT-92 Stainless target. If you don't have the$ for a EOTech,..it's a quality alternative...

I would go trijicon.......I have a bad taste from Burris..I bought an Eliminator III and it never worked from the start...Got my money back and bought a Leopuld.... I was REALLY excited about the Eliminator too....Very cool concept. Just mine was a POS...
