Greeley, CO – 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 proven FastFire optics series, the new FastFire C delivers a durable and reliable aiming option ideally suited for today’s deep concealment, micro-compact defensive pistols. Weighing less than one ounce and built around a strong, reinforced composite polymer housing similar to that of pistol frames, the FastFire C integrates several features engineered for maximum performance in any defensive situation.
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 to engage after initial powerup with no additional settings required on the part of the shooter. The Always-On functionality of the FastFire C is powered by a Burris Intelligent Auto-Bright system, which automatically adjusts reticle brightness levels for optimal visibility in any ambient light condition. For those who prefer to set their own brightness level, the FastFire C offers five manual illumination settings.
Since backup open sights are always a bonus the FastFire C has an exceptionally low profile that allows for absolute or 1/3 co-witness with most standard-height factory open sights. This is a big plus for gun owners because it eliminates the added expense of installing elevated sights to clearance the optic window. Additionally, 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.
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 aggressive, one-hand slide manipulation. Combined with the ultra-lightweight, shockproof, fog proof, and water-resistant housing construction, the FastFire C is built for the rigors of everyday carry.
Lastly, the FastFire C boasts an exceptionally clear aspherical glass lens with minimal bluing and field curvature. This promotes a crisp, undistorted reflective surface for the stable, no-flicker 6 MOA red dot reticle.
Backed by the Burris Forever Warranty, the new FastFire C compact red dot is the answer for those looking for a light, easy-to-use, always ready, and ultra-fast aiming solution for their sub- or micro-compact defensive pistol.
