Nice scope

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on July 21, 2013
I mounted this on a S&K scout scope mount on an old 8mm Mauser. In this setup, the eye relief seemed fine, and I was please with the optical clarity. I have not hunted with this yet, so we shall see how the coatings do in low light. So far so good. It's not an inexpensive scope, but it seems well built and optically meets my expectations for this price level.
Pros: clear optics, nicely finished, easy adjustment
Cons: none I can think of now...
Would recommend: Yes

Works Great on Ruger Scout

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, VA Written on March 30, 2013
Mounted on the front rail of Ruger Scout Rifle 308. Great eye-relief especially me with progressive bifocals. 2.75 is a great power for 25/50 yard target shooting and in puckerbrusch. 100yard well is just wee bit too far for these eyes.
Pros: easy installation and set-up
Cons: wish it came with scope caps :(...
Would recommend: Yes

FYI- Country of origin

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, IN Written on February 9, 2013
After reading thru many web reviews for this scope,I ordered one. In the reviews that mentioned the country of origin, USA was stated. I saw photos that had made in the USA on the eye piece. The first thing that I saw when I opened mine, was a made in the Philippines sticker. I would not have made this purchase had I known that.
Pros: At least not made in China
Cons: Asian sourced...

great scout scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on January 25, 2013
After trashing the Leupold scope for not having adjustable focus, I wanted to follow up with my positive results with the Burris. Interestingly, though the Burris has adjustable focus with a lockring, I hardly had to adjust it at all - whereas the Leupold was blurry and unusable for me - maybe it was just bad? Anyway, I was able to zero the Burris quickly on my Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle and it handles .308 shock fine so far. I should work fine on my Mini-14 6.8SPC with Ultimak rail as well. I might add that the Warne 200LM QD rings also work well in this application, and return to zero nicely. My recommendation: go with the Burris....
Would recommend: Yes

Burris Scout

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on July 15, 2012
My buddy bought one of these a year or so ago. I liked it so much I ordered one. Well when mine arrived there was no felt scope bag or rubber bikini lens cover that my friend received. I contatced Burris and they advised they no longer included these items with the scope and did not sell them now. Very poor customer service. Still a great scope but not such a value as it used to be.
Pros: Solid
Cons: No lens caps/cover...
Would recommend: Yes

Scout Scope on All Purpose Rifle

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, FL Written on April 6, 2012
I purchased this scope and matching low profile mounts for a general purpose rifle (inspired by Jeff Cooper). I mounted the scope in a forward postion on my rifle and it has a slim clean mounted appearance which allows the rifle to be stored in most standard cases and bags. The optic is very clear. The scope isuseful from 100 to 300 yards and is ideal for hunting at those distances. However, the design of the scope with the Burris mounts has a blind spot around the preimeter of approx. 20' at 100 yards (even when shooting with both eyes open) and this blind spot is a hindrance at shoots closer than 100 yards. This scope is not practical for use on a defensive rifle around the homestead or on a confrontation rifle for law enforcement.
Overall the scope and mounts are well made and I would recommend them for someone looking for a forward mounted scope on a hunting rifle.
Pros: Slim clean mounted profile with a clear optic.
Cons: Blind spot and not useful under 100 yards....
Would recommend: Yes

Burris Scout Scope a good value

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on April 6, 2012
The Burris Scout Scope is everything I was hoping for, with no hidden surprises that I wasn't. It mounted up quick and easy, reticle was quickly focused (the competitor's reticle can't be focused)and eye relief was easy to set up for due to the scope having a bit of a usable range of eye relief (again, not something the competition has) allows for the difference in head postiotion going from standing, to sitting, to prone shooting positions.
Pros: Reticle is focusable, good field of view, simple to set up and maintain, lack of power adjustments, uncluttered reticle, wider range of eye relief than the competition.
Cons: No scope caps/covers provided....
Would recommend: Yes

Burris Scout

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on March 1, 2012
This review is based upon the Burris "Short Mag", Burris item #201311. The scope was discontinued but the Burris Scout is what took it's place. The scope is perfect mounted on an AR. It's nice and short, has crisp optics, and is a quality, reasonably priced option perfect for an AR15.
Pros: Short, lighweight, crisp and clear optics
Cons: none...
Would recommend: Yes
