New from Burris is the FastFire C red dot for sub-compact and micro-compact pistols.
More from Burris: “The trend toward incorporating red-dot optics on sub-compact and micro-compact pistols for everyday and concealed carry use continues to expand as more personal defense practitioners recognize the benefits of this precise, on-demand aiming solution. To meet the needs of shooters looking for a red dot option for their EDC handguns, Burris Optics introduces the all-new FastFire C.”
Building on the company’s popular FastFire optics series, the new FastFire C is a durable and reliable aiming option ideal for micro-compact defensive pistols. Weighing less than one ounce, the FastFire C is built around a reinforced composite polymer housing, which is similar to that of many pistol frames.
Powered by a CR2032 battery, the FastFire C utilizes “Always-On” technology with a 25,000-hour run time, so the optic is always ready after initial powerup with no additional settings required on the part of the shooter. The Always-On functionality of the FastFire C red-dot optic is powered by a Burris Intelligent Auto-Bright system, which automatically adjusts reticle brightness levels for optimal visibility in any ambient light condition. Additionally, the FastFire C sports five manual illumination settings.
The FastFire C uses the popular RMSc footprint as its mounting standard, and the housing’s protective lens hood incorporates serrations along the front edge to deliver no-slip performance for one-handed slide manipulation. Combined with the ultra-lightweight, shockproof, fog proof and water-resistant housing construction, the FastFire C is built for everyday carry.
For use with backup open sights, the FastFire C has a low profile allowing for absolute or ⅓ co-witness with most standard-height factory open sights. This eliminates the additional expense of installing elevated sights that clear the optic window. In addition, the FastFire C includes a removeable rear fixed sight, which can be used as a co-witnessing backup or reference point for quick dot alignment. A white, high-visibility stripe on the back of the housing also assists in fast sight alignment and quick dot acquisition.
Additionally, the FastFire C has a clear aspherical glass lens with minimal bluing and field curvature for a crisp, undistorted reflective surface for the stable, no-flicker six-MOA red-dot reticle.
MSRP for the Burris FastFire C red-dot optic is $276. Go to burrisoptics.com.
