Burris AR-332 for AR-15?

I stopped in my LGS to check out scopes for my AR.
The AR-332 was one that they recommended.
Anyone have any experience with it.


Thanks

Just ordered one from Midwayusa...$349.00, free shipping....very few negatives on reviews....most say alot of bang for the $$$
I also ordered a quick disconnect mount...after reading a neg review on the AR332s mount...then found out Burris has a quick disconnect mount also, about $83...I think I'm going to like it much!

Thanks Reagan
I thought it looked like a nice scope.
I think my wife is getting one of these for my birthday next month.

Give us a report after you try this out.

Sounds and looks good, want to update scope on my SR-556.

I feel for you guys that fell into this trap. These are real chineezy pieces o' sch!+. I've been thru 2 of them. First one had electrical problems right out of the box. Dealer replaced it. The replacement lasted about a month before the electronics went bad. Good thing the reticle works(black) without power. Burris repaired it within a month, so the CS isn't too bad....After I received it back, mounted and sighted it in, I put it away for about a month. Took it out to use the rifle, and a line of black stuff had miraculously formed on the internals. The crap (mold?) was so distracting to look thru, I finally tossed it on a 15-22. Couldn't stand it on there either, so it went away.......







The concept is sound, but the execution sucks. As does the little range dots in the reticle......

Sorry to hear about your problem. I've had mine for quite a while with no issues. It's designed for the AR platform and the 223 round.
