Redemption!!!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WA Written on October 7, 2010
I recently purchased a Knoxx recoil reducing stock (EXCELLENT PRODUCT!) for my hard kicking, little used, Model 1300 slug gun. I planned to use the gun's existing iron sights for close-range deer and bear, but the stock's near straight angle prevented that....it's near impossible to see down the sights. I'm not much into "eye weld". So I mounted a Nikon 2-7X32 shotgun scope instead. At the range things got hairy. On a few shots, my eyebrow was lightly kissed by the scope as the stocks' recoil reduction system engaged. In the process of absorbing the recoil, springs allow the receiver to momentarily collapse backwards, bringing said scope with it! Too close for comfort for me! I went home and contemplated my options. Buy a new scope.....or, use what I already own. Enter the much-maligned 4X Timberline. Mounted, it gave me a full 1.5" of additional eye relief. AND, it looks awesome, as though it was made for this gun. The following day I had this combo zeroed in only 6 rounds at 75 yards, with no issues. The real test came with 3" magnum slugs @100 yards. Everything came together at this moment....gun, stock, Timberline 4X scope and slugs. Round after round flew into a 4" target. I'll take that from rifled foster-style slugs @100 yards any day! Not one time did the scope touch me. This set-up is the most comfortable slug gun I've ever used....and the Timberline is a key part. I'm still not real big on the clarity but it's OK at short ranges and saves my right ...

Expectations Not Met

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on July 13, 2009
I recently purchased one of these scopes in an attempt to upgrade a Marlin 336 30-30, presently topped with a Weaver V-3 and using Hornady Leverevolution ammo. Loggers recently logged off several hundred acres where I hunt, creating large clear cuts that are deer magnets and present 200 yard shots. I could easily use one of my bolt action rifles to tackle this issue but am addicted to my lever guns for white tail hunting! Anyways, this scope is a HUGE disappointment in the clarity department. I spent hours trying to adjust it but could not obtain a crisp, clear focus that I'd expect from a Burris. In side-by-side comparisons to my Weaver V-3s, K-4, and Nikon Prostaff 2-7X32 and 3-9X40, all of which are comparably priced and provide clear, crisp images, this Timberline failed miserably. And, (gasp!) it's even worse than a lowly Brunton 1.5-5X20!!! My Weaver V-3 maintained it's position on my 336 and the Timberline has now been assigned to my boys Henry .22 plinker...OUCH, I didn't see that coming! IMO, Burris should leave the budget scope market to those who have already conquered it.
Pros: Compact size, eye relief
Cons: Clarity issues...
Would recommend: No
