Anyone have the Burris AR-1X

Recommended Posts

The AR1X is in redesign with some improvements, hopefully early 2016.

Bumping for my own good, to Mark or anyone else,

Have you heard any news on this new reticle moving ahead and what we might expect?

It is coming, hope to have a look soon. Timeframe for sales looks to be early 2016.

I have one and like it. But the stadia lines are pretty hard to see. It's designed to be used with a multiplier, which I have no plans to use. Will Burris be able to upgrade older sights to a new reticle design!

Wait what? This is already out? What is the reticle?

I think he means he has the first version and wants to know if Burris will be able to retrofit it to the new design once it's out.

The new reticle can not be put into one of the Gen 1 AR1X optics. Availability if everything goes as planned in production and QC won't be until about the end of the second quarter. I know that is not great news for those waiting.

We hope to be able to get an engineering sample soon and, if allowed, will try to get images of the reticle.

Went through all the promotions and delays in production/QC and bought a Gen 1 only to discover it didn't quite live up to the hype. Now we found out that the " new and improved " solutions can't be retrofit to the originals, guess I should have known better than to buy something made in china no matter who's brand name is on it...

But you can nearly get 2 for the price of a Prismatic, that would most likely not be possible if they where not made in a lower wage country.

(edited to remove reference to incorrect country of manufacture)

They might very well be made there now, but mine says right on it "Made In China"...

Nope. You are correct, I am wrong. Mine says the same thing. Apologies.

If anyone is still looking for the Burris AR-1X Gen 1. I have a new one still in wrapped box for $275.00 plus S/H.

Any word on when they are coming out. I picked up two sparc 2s in the meantime and one of them quit functioning after a magazine, starting to flash/blink and then wouldn't turn on anymore.

I am hoping to see an engineering sample next month.
