    I have one of their 45x 50mm spotting scopes and it is very clear and has decent eye relief. I can see .22 holes in a target at 200 yards.


    I also have a 4.5 x 14 AO rifle scope that is acceptable. It has good clarity in the field of view and decent eye relief. The adjustments are accurate and the point of impact remains consistent at different power ratings. I paid around $350 for the scope. It is almost equal to a Leupold.


    All in all, I consider the Burris optics to be near but not quite as good as a Leupold. Next time, I will gladly pay an additional $100-200 or so for the equivalent Leupold.

    They fixed a pair of binoculars for me that were out of warranty by a few months. They were not obligated and we both new it, NO Charge. Bill2

    Agree with gmag. Plus even cheap scopes today tie or beat scopes for clarity from 20 years ago. Nikon is a very good scope for the money. I still like Ziess but can't afford to many of them

    I have owned a Black Diamond, very durable and clear on the optics, but heavy. I also have the Fullfield II and Signature series. All look great during daytime hours, however, the images in the signature and the black diamond were a little crisper and if it was twilight or hazy conditions. However, there was not enough differnce that would cause me to miss a shot.

    What are you looking for in a Burris? I happen to have a new in box, never mounted 3-9x40 Signature Electro-Dot scope (not the newer Signature Select series, I didn't like it when they put the eyepiece and power adjustment together), just sitting in the safe, if you have any interest.

    Be aware that the Fullfield II is made in China now.

    I almost bought a short-mag 2-7. Wished I had can't find them anywhere now. I thought they were lifetime warranty?

    I have a newer FFII 3-9X40 on a 300 WSM. After 160 rounds it still tracks well and holds zero.
