The FastFire 2 provides a 4-MOA red dot. Its automatic brightness sensor adjusts to your environment, so you can keep slamming targets.
The Burris Company released its first "micro" red-dot sight back in the year 2007, called the FastFire Red-Dot Reflex Sight. After few years, precisely in 2011 they announced a new upgraded water-resistant but not waterproof variant of the original FastFire. This model dubbed as the FastFire II also featuring an extended parallax-free distance from 50 yards on the initial version to 100-150 yards on the current version.
The Second FastFire iteration sight is extremely small but tough, with parts machined from stainless steel, black anodized aluminum, and bronze. The overall finish gives the appearance of a well-made device from a reputable manufacturer Featuring compact dimensions and weight of unbelievable 1.75 ounces, along with Picatinny mount.
Though minuscule dimensions (1.8″x1.0″x0.9″) the FastFire II is designed to be used with both eyes opened, which makes the small size of the optic a nonissue. However, Burris small but efficient reflex sight`s heads-up display enables a square, rapid to use a screen with a red dot reticle and give the shooter a crisper sight picture, even in intense sunlight or suboptimal weather. The multi-coated lens is precision ground and polished to exacting geometries to virtually eliminate parallax and to provide a very clear sight picture. The Burris Fastfire II does not have conventional turrets, but it has two small screws that enable fully adjustment of windage and elevation. Similar to the classic scope the elevation adjustment is on the top, and the windage adjustment is on the right side. In a package, the buyer gets two tools for adjusting the sight: an adjusting disk and small screwdriver. The disk has some reference marks and also divisions showing how much to turn to achieve 1 MOA at 100 yards. It's very easy to use, and owner only has to do exactly what the instructions say to do. The FF2 unit features a light sensor that automatically adjusts the dot's brightness to the available light providing a 4-MOA red dot. The device is powered by one 3V lithium CR2032 battery, which is long lasting because of the battery-saver mode and high-tech electronic components. Burris claim that a battery can last as long as five years.
By its complete construction, the FastFire II seems robust and sturdy offering 14 different mount options for all sorts of firearms. After having stood the recoil resistance test at minimum of 1,000 G`s the sight is rated for the high power semi-autos, shotguns, high power rifles or even big-caliber hunting revolvers. It should be noted that the eye relief is virtually unlimited. Hence one can mount the FastFire II anywhere you can see through it.
Burris Fastfire 2 isn’t the cheapest optic on the market, but as a square shaped reflex sight is in the same vein as the famed Trijicon or Eotech only at nearly half of the price while giving you an edge in hunting and competitive sports.
