The ability of some company to quickly react to markets or/and customers' demands maybe can be best seen in Burris case. After an only year and half of introducing FF2, they manage to launch a new upgraded Red-Dot dubbed FastFire III. Like earlier models, this new red dot optic is also at 1x magnification allowing both-eyes-open shooting. Moreover, without adding weight or bulkiness or changing the balance of your weapon choice, this sight adds so much functionality and versatility to a gun. As another improvement, the FastFire III uses a dot MOA of 4 (small) and 8 (large) and is listed as submersible.
The third generation of Burris Fastfire family has enhanced numerous features that incorporate upgraded windage and elevation adjustments, a top mounted battery (CR1632) for easier battery replacement and a power button that provides three manual brightness settings. On the new version windage and elevation adjustment could be done without tools in the field. Besides that the new location of the battery compartment is perfectly positioned so the Miniature Red Dot does not need to be unmounted in order to replace the battery. Additionally, the unit has electronic controlled power supply meaning that after eight hours the system automatically shuts down plus a low battery indicator is provided. The power button has a dual function, to turn the optic on/off and via cycling the push button to set the brightness manually. The auto brightness setting is quickly responsive while the almost perfectly round red dot stays very crisp throughout all the intensity levels.
Compact, and lightweight, the FF3 reflex sight is intended for shooting at close to medium range and is especially superior for engaging a moving target. FF3 is a great sight for a handgun or plinking rifle, but all of its features make it equally desirable for hunting, competition, self-defense and even law enforcement. There are extensive selections of Burris mounts in aftermarket offered for either model that will fit on most popular shooting platforms.
