• Handgunning is challenging enough without having to depend on scopes that are little more than an afterthought. Which is precisely why Burris builds the shooting industry's most extensive family of handgun-specific scopes.
• High quality, fully multi-coated optics, and the commitment of a Burris Forever Warranty make up a solid nucleus, and, as you'd expect, the line brims with innovations and firsts. Like handgun scopes with a parallax adjustment to accommodate both long-range and close quarters shooting, and the first variable handgun scope on the market.
• Two legendary Burris technologies are perfectly suited for the nuances of handgun shooting. Posi-Lock secures the point-of-impact in the face of abusive recoil. The high arching trajectories of many handgun calibers complicates shooting long range, unless the scope is equipped with Ballistic Plex.
I replaced my Burris Scout Scope with this one because of the higher magnification and it works great. I have a much better view of my target now and I'm glad they came out with this more powerful model.
I bought this handgun scope a couple months ago and had to send it back it's 2x7x32. The power ring is stuck it won't let me fine tune it to zero and when I get close u t does not hold zero. So hopefully they fix it I will update this review when I get the scope back which will be in about 6 weeks.
Hello All, I purchased this particular version to mount on a M1 Garand Scout rifle build. After reading my eyes blind on the Scout vs. Pistol scope issue. I decided to chance it and select a pistol scope, one reason was the higher magnification, and parallax adjustment. AWESOME SCOPE!!! Super Clear optics and it was in the bullseye on the FIRST SHOT!! WITHOUT BORE SIGHTING!! I've never have that happen. Magnification is great...This is my second Burris, the other is on a RUger BlackHawk Hunter, both have been awesome !!
This scope is mounted on my 12" .460 S&W mag handgun. I needed to get out to 200 meters and the typical 8x magnification is not quite enough. Even maxed out to 12x the Burris has a reasonably good eye relief, you do have to search around but it is what it is. The glass quality is excellent and only marginally less quality than the Leupold 2.5-8x scope. Customer service deserves a positive plug as well. I lost a turret cap and called Burris and explained, and they sent a replacement no charge . Thank you !
Very happy with the scope, except the windage adjustment is stiff. Does not have positive clicks like the elevation adjustment. Will have to return for repair. Poor quality control
The eye relief is very good and is able to hold the gun to the side when hunting,
Since I read various reviews stating that their Burris 2-7X Ballistic Plex Posi-Lock was blurry right out of the box I want to say that I was looking for that as soon as I mounted mine but itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s crystal clear. At 2 power or 7 power, looking at something 20 yards away or 200 yards away (on a cloudy day as it is today) all the lines in the bark of the trees are clear and well defined. I am impressed with the clarity and like it better than my previous Bushnell 2 power scope. I do agree that once the power exceeds 3 it doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have enough eye relief for a handgun. That doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t bother me as I had planned on hunting (deer) with it set on 2 power (3 at the most, depending on the terrain) and only using the 7 power to look Ã¢â‚¬Ëœover yonderÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ if I couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t make something out that could be a deer or just a stump or a boulder. If you are planning on mounting this on a high powered handgun with the intention of using the higher magnifications for long distance shooting this scope wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t work for you. I have it on my Magnum Research BFR .454 Casull and I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want to be pulling the trigger without my arms fully extended, but at the higher magnifications in order to see anything through it you have to hold it much farther back to your face (OK for scouting, not OK for recoil). It didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t come with lens caps, like my Bushnell did, but I called Customer Service and they sent me a pair. For what itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s worth I used the Burris Signature Zee rings to mount it, and I love the idea of the inserts and will likely use these rings for all my future scope mounts. For the price I love it. Leupold doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have handgun scopes with a ballistic plex reticle so they werenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t an option for me. If they did I may have gone with one of theirs, but since they didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t I saved $150 or so and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m very happy with the Burris.
Just wanted to say thank you for great customer service. I was able to send my original scope with lock up rings and you quickly check it our and determined a replacement was the best option. Thanks Iove my new scope
I purchased my scope to mount on a Ruger Redhawk in 44magnum. I use my Redhawk for deer and pig hunting so I use full house rounds. I practice with full house as well, as I am a better shot on the hunt if I practice with my hunting rounds. My Burris handgun scope has held zero since I installed it and zeroed it. My next Rifle scope will be a Burris.
Great on Savage Scout 7.76X39. Crystal clear opticall the way to X12. Adjustable objective a bit to stretch to reach as a Scout rifle optic,but scope works very well. 3X12 power perfect! Really like this scope...
