Bought a Franchi yesterday. Found a Burris FF 3 for 200 so I’ll be going with it. I’ll put out updates on how it goes but it will be a while cause I can’t get it dipped til the fall
Always wondering wether or not to give a cluck

I have two burris fastfire 3's and have been completely satisified with them.  You cannot beat their lifetime warranty either

I have 2 Venoms and 3 FF3’s. Not a problem with either. The Venom has a slightly larger field of view but is not wider than the receiver of the gun, it’s mildly noticeable as seen in the photo below.

Which has the darkest lenses to y'alls eyes? I'm thinking the Vortex has the clearer lens.

Burris 336. It does not fit the factory drilled and tapped holes on the Affinity 3 according to Burris
