Mine still hasn't shipped. Perhaps they will send it to be for this Christmas!

I put it on one of my ARs and the eye relief is not a problem. I would like to sight it in tomorrow, but it looks like the weather isn't going to cooperate. It is recommended to sight it in for 100 yds so the "drop compensation" feature will be on out to 600 yds. The brochure states it works for "popular 5.56 and 7.62 cartridges." I seriously doubt that's true since the bullet weights range from 55gr to 168gr. Combine a wide spectrum of bullet weights with velocity differences and I don't expect anything as linear as marked on the reticle.

I'll give a field report when I finally get to shoot it. I need to find batteries for my Aimpoint Comp ML that I haven't shot in years. I'd like to compare them out to 300 yds.

Charles - did you ever get the AR-322 out to the range for sight in?
The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager

Well . . . no. :oops: That's why I want the Fastfire III. I want it to sit in the gun room and keep the AR-332 company. Maybe after the session is over.

Received my FastFire III in the mail today, pretty typical Christmas-time rebate turnaround (got checks for remington & federal premium last week). Haven't played with it yet :)

Woohoo! Hopefully mine isn't far behind. The rebate center received and validated my paperwork 1/6.

FWIW, the status page is still the same for me, just the original submission received entry date. No new entry saying shipped.

Wow..thanks! That is encouraging then, I wondered if you have seen a shipped date.

My Fastfire 3 just arrived. I checked the website and it still doesn't show that it had shipped.

Received my FastFire 3 on Saturday. Didn't get opportunity to mount and take it to the range though.

Just as a heads up, make sure the battery cover is tightened well and I recommend the use of some blue Loctite.

Thanks. When I put the battery in and replaced the cover it appears that the cover does not fit as flush as it did without battery. I'll open it back up and put a little blue Loctite on the threads.
