Burris introduces the new AR-1X Prism Sight, a rugged CQB sight made for ultra-fast shooting in intense competitive or tactical situations. A new, highly visible reticle design is ideal for close quarters shooting, and provides trajectory compensation out to 600 yards. 1X magnification creates greater situational awareness by encouraging both-eyes-open shooting, but the optic pairs perfectly with magnifying devices like the Burris AR-Tripler.

The new Ballistic CQ 1X reticle is an illuminated reticle available in three colors - red, green, or black (which is etched onto the prism and always functional, even without battery power). A sophisticated push-button activation lets user quickly transition between colors and brightness settings. One high-end lithium AA battery will yield up to 5,000+ hours of service. Easy-to-see reticle hash marks offer trajectory compensation out to 600 yards and are designed to aid in target size determination at distance. The sight is also night vision compatible for extreme versatility.

The nature of a CQB sight demands rugged construction and you'll find none tougher. It's waterproof and fogproof with lens coatings maximized for glare resistance and low-light operations. It's hand-fitted to the tightest, shock-resistant tolerances and comes with tethered caps for extra protection. Like all Burris optics, it's backed with the legendary, no-questions-asked Forever Warranty®.
