Burris AR 536

Burris has introduced a new optic that looks pretty darn good. Its a 5x, 36mm sight designed specifically for the AR. Send me one please.

AR-536™ Prism Sight
“Bigger and badder” is the best way to describe the AR-536 which sets a new standard for tactical prism sight performance. Its 5x magnification makes it easier to find and engage targets out to 600 yards, while the larger 36mm objective delivers brighter, crisper images. Burris’ proven Ballistic/CQ™ lighted reticle is ideal for tactical operations or friendly competition. Shooters can choose the high contrast black reticle, or select red or green depending upon the situation. Five different illumination settings make it easy to match any light condition.
This ruggedly built optic will stand up to recoil, abuse and weather. Key features include multi-coated lenses, adjustable diopter, integrated lens covers and three Picatinny rail mounting points. Remove the bottom rail mount and it can be readily mounted to an AR carry handle. It is ready for the range right out of the box. One-Year Warranty.

  1. I currently own the AR-332 and I love it. I'm excited to get my hands on one of these.

  2. This might also be a good option for a Ruger Scout.

    1. Yeah, but with an optic that is this light and compact, do you really need to mount it in the scout position?

    2. I wouldn't think so. Jeff Quinn fit his Ruger Scout with a Picatinny rail over the bolt, which would be a good solution. I'm still saving my nickles and dimes for this rifle, so I'm toying with optics ideas, but when I do buy I think I'll go with a conventionally mounted sight.

    3. I'm itchin' for one of those myself.
