The new FastFire 4 and FastFire RD optics from Burris takes what the company has learned over the last 10 years to refine the popular collection of red-dot reflex sights.
Common to both of the new Burris red dots are new lens coatings that aid in maintaining red dot visibility, plus an automatic brightness sensor that adjusts the dot according to environmental conditions. Access to the battery is on top of the sight, which should make it easy to pop in a spare while at the range.
The FastFire 4 has a removable weather shield, overall length of 1.9 inches and weights 1.6 ounces.
Improving upon previous models, the new FastFire 4 (MSRP: $455) sports a larger sight window for a greater field of view. Four reticle options are easily selected via side toggle buttons (3 MOA, 11 MOA, and both with outer circles). The aiming point itself is brighter and Burris says the battery life is improved. And, a new removable weather shield will make sure the sight stays watertight.
At 6.4 ounces, the beefy FastFire RD is both waterproof and shockproof.
The RD in FastFire RD (MSRP: $215) stands for rifle dot, and boasts a 2 MOA dot reticle that's enclosed in a waterproof housing. Brightness has seven levels of adjustment, plus two NV modes for low-light situations. A built-in mounting bracket is compatible with both Picatinny and Weaver-style rails.
Be on the lookout for a more in-depth review of the FastFire 4 in a future issue of the digital magazine.
