Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Is the 8 MOA version of this product more suited to the shotgun applications? The red dot being larger for close ranges.
Answer: 8 MOA means having this range at 100 yards. Likely to work fine for the shotguns.
Question: Will the fast fire red-dot reflex sight work fine with my glock 23.3 gen?
Answer: It depends if your slide could be cut to get an optic. It won’t otherwise. The ones manufactured by the factory do not have the right cuts for the mounting
Question: Is it likely to fit onto my glock 34 mos? If so, would it mess with my rear iron sights?
Answer: Yes, the Burris fast fire red-dot reflex sight will fit on a glock 34mos. For the rear sight, you may take the help from co-witness, replacing the iron sights. This would improve the situation a lot.
Question: Does the Fast Fire II require adapter to mount over a Browning Buckmark rail mount?
Answer: No, it does not need an additional adapter. The Browning Buckmark alone is good enough. The Burris fast fire can easily mount over Picatinny and Weaver. Though the Burris fast fire red-dot reflex sight does come with four adapters for better adaptability. The adapters may be turned upside down to adjust the fittings.
Decided to buy this product after a previous failure with another one. Everything is great so far. I use it mounted over a Burris MTAX scope. The zeroes are still not lost, the brightness is sufficient for daytime shooting and the recoil is superb, just what I wanted.

The sight delivers on the expectations. I am just not too happy with the fact that I need to remove it from its base whenever the battery needs to be changed. It required a re-sighting once the battery was changed, not something you want during a match. If only I had spent a few more bucks to buy the Fast Fire III.
This happens to be among the best red dots available in this price. It is easy to mount, easy to use and the zero is steady. I use for an S&W .22 pistol and it’s so much fun to shoot with that. Feels like cheating.
