In the realm of personal defense, the evolution of firearm accessories has been remarkable. One of the most notable trends in recent years is the integration of red dot optics on sub-compact and micro-compact pistols. For this reason, companies like Burris Optics continue to release increasingly smaller options like the FastFire C.
The Burris Optics FastFire C
Whether you are searching for a new optic for self-defense or competition or because those eyes just aren’t what they used to be, look no further. Burris Optics recognizes the growing demand for well-fitting and modern solutions for everyday concealed carry scenarios. As a result, the company has unveiled its latest offering: the FastFire™ C.
Read on for the features we discovered that made this lil’ guy stand out amongst its predecessors.
The FastFire C isn’t just another addition to the FastFire optics series; it’s a testament to Burris’ commitment to innovation. Crafted with a strong composite polymer housing, this red dot is designed to withstand the stressors of everyday carry.
Typically, when an item of any nature is described as sturdy, robust, or durable, the weight of that item increases. However, making no compromises, the FastFire C weighs less than one ounce, making itself seemingly unnoticeable when installed. Likewise, it maintains a sleek and compact footprint.
The Ever-Ready FastFire C
One of the standout features of the FastFire C is its “Always On” technology. While they are not the first to launch optics with this technology, it is certainly a feature that is both sought after and much appreciated by those who rely on it for their safety and protection.
Powered by a CR2032 battery easily found at your local big-box store, this optic boasts an impressive 25,000-hour runtime. From the moment you power it up, the FastFire C remains ready to engage, eliminating the need for constant adjustments.
The Burris Intelligent Auto-Bright system further simplifies its use by automatically adjusting the brightness level of the reticle to ambient light conditions. If you happen to prefer manual brightness controls, the FastFire C also offers five different illumination settings to choose from.
Speaking of reticles, the FastFire C’s low profile allows the shooter to co-witness their reticle with most factory iron sights. This ability negates the need for iron sights to be swapped out to facilitate your co-witness preferences.
For anyone nervous about relying solely on a red dot, fearing a dead battery would render them “sightless,” no worries. The Burris FastFire C includes a removable rear fixed sight that serves as a reliable fail-safe.
Burris Optics Focused on Durability and Reliability
In the name of keeping it simple, the FastFire C’s mounting system uses the ever-popular RMSc footprint. As a result, this ensures compatibility with a wide range of firearms.
Surrounding the lens is a protective hood with serrations along the front edge. This ensures your hand does not slip and lose grip during manipulation. Additional features come standard, as should be expected from quality optics. These features include but are not limited to a shockproof, fog-proof, and water-resistant construction.
This quality construction houses quality glass, with optimal clarity void of distortion obtained through the aspherical lens of this small yet mighty optic. The crisp, clear 6 MOA red dot is adjustable via 80 MOA’s worth of windage and elevation adjustments.
Whether you’re an experienced shooter or someone brand new to the world of red dots, the FastFire C offers a well-balanced blend of performance, durability, and reliability. If you’re in search of a lightweight, compact, user-friendly, and lightning-fast aiming solution, the FastFire C emerges as a top contender.
With its array of features, easy-on-the-wallet price point, and a reputable brand name behind it, the FastFire C is poised to set a new benchmark in the realm of compact red dot optics. Committed to their product and those who purchase it, this red dot is backed by the Burris Forever Warranty.
