The new FastFire III from Burris is extremely fast, rugged and low profile. This newest addition of the FastFire line is ideal for tactical applications with the choice of either a 3-MOA or an 8-MOA dot.

"Since their introduction, our line of FastFire sights have become a favorite of hunters and shotgun users alike," said Rob Siemers, general manager. "With a new design and upgraded features, the FastFire III will continue to be the 'go to' choice for shotguns, long guns, AR platforms and pistols."

The FastFire III has several new features that make it even easier to use. The battery access on the FastFire III is now top-mounted, making it easier to change. The windage and elevation adjustments have been upgraded for finer tuning without a special tool, and a convenient power button provides three manual brightness settings, as well as an automatic setting. And, to make certain your battery power doesn't run out before your task is accomplished, a low-battery warning indicator has been added to this new generation FastFire.

The FastFire II is still available with its 4-MOA Dot. Both models simplify the act of aiming, eliminating the need to focus on the front sight while aligning it with the rear sight and target. Simply place the dot on the target and fire. Both models are lightweight-weighing in at 1 ounce-and are completely waterproof. They are rugged and impervious to the elements and punishing recoil of large-caliber firearms. The lenses are high quality, precision ground and polished to exacting geometrics to virtually eliminate parallax.

Both the FastFire II and III fit either Weaver or Picatinny rails and can be purchased with or without the mount.

The new FastFire III will be available at retailers the first quarter of 2012 for a suggested retail price of $239 alone, or $249 with the Picatinny rail mount. The popular FastFire II is available now at retailers nationwide with a suggested retail price of $199 sight alone and $209 with the mount.
