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.”

FastFire C side views
Overall weight of the Burris FastFire C red-dot optic is 0.44 ounces, and the dimensions are 1.61 inches long, 0.99 inches wide and 0.98 inches tall. Elevation and windage adjustment range is 80 MOA for both. Adjustment graduation is four MOA.


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.

FastFire C six-MOA dot
Sight window size is 22 mm x 17 mm. The reticle is a six-MOA dot.


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
