Hey everyone,
Anybody have experience with Burris Scopes? The Fullfield II to be more specific (item#200162). It's 3X9-40mm for about $170. I guess I'm just looking for opions and possible suggestions.

thanks
rob

Burris makes fine scopes.

Even the 'basic' scopes have great optics (high transmittivity in low light, little chromatic aberration at lens edges) and a solid adjustment mechanism that consistently returns to zero.

Frankly the Fullfield II optics I've looked thru look as good as Leupold's higher-end optics. And they're made in USA.

Orders of magnitude better than Tasco (Trashco), Simmons, etc. and other imported cr_p.

I never had any luck with Burris' products. I had a long eye relief scope for an AK variant years ago, and I could not find a good sight picture at any distance. I recently went to Imbert and Smithers looking for a scope for my Model 70 Classic Super Grade, and asked to look through a Burris. Unlike the Leupold and Zeiss scopes, again I could not find a comfortable eye relief where I had a clear sight picture. It sounds weird, but it's happened with two Burris scopes and only Burris scopes.

My brother has two and swears by them. I like Leopold myself. I will admit my favorite scope is now the Shepherd PE2.

Very user friendly.

Not a FullField, but have had my Signature 12-24X for years now, with not one bit of complaint.

The sunshade I made myself, from the downtube of the right wing of some poor smashed aircraft that was at the airport fire dept. The tube fit perfectly around the Burris sunshade, and with a smear of Lok-Tite it refuses to come off under recoil.....not that the .223 makes all that much!

I have a Fullfield II 4x14-42 for my Savage 10FPLE2A that I bought at City Arms. They mounted and boresighted it for free. IMHO, it's definitely an upgrade from my Millet.
