New Burris Tri Modular Prism Riflescope — SHOT Show 2018

Burris has taken a step away from the big ticket items this year, reaching back into the prism realm.

New for this year, the Tri-Modular Prism riflescope, or TMPR. Available in 3x or 5x, these are the same size as the previous models, with a 40% gain in field of view. Illumination is now push button instead of dials, slimming the package. The reticle switches from red, green, or blue, and now features night vision settings to match the daylight ones.

Features & Pricing

The Tri part in the TMPR refers to the adaptors. Built right into the top are mounting spots for two options. These are a Burris fast fire red dot and a laser pointer, configurable as top mount, and both side at a 45-degree angle. If you prefer, you can also make all three run off the units internal battery, simplifying swaps. If you prefer to let the laser use it’s own batteries without draining the sights, there is a disconnect switch.

The new TMPR also features a re-engineered QD mount, that is totally self-adjusting. The spring packs in this design snap to any rail and look like a solid change. The TMPR will be available in the spring, as either a complete kit or as pieces if you already own a fast fire.

MSRP for the 3x is $839, the 5x is $899.

    Love the modularity. How much does it weigh–looks a heavy.Wonder why they went with 3x and 5x. Trijicon\’s are 4x and seem to be the standard.
