Review Category: Rifle Scopes
Purchase: Rifle Scopes I was looking for a less expensive scope for a Savage 110 25-06. A number of personnel at the local store recommended this scope for my application. At a price of $199.00 with a pair of Landmark Binoculars I decided to go for it. Besides, I live in Greeley, CO and I like to support the local company. Should I have any issues with the scope they get to deal with an unhappy customer face to face.
Things I like about the Burris Fullfield II 3-9X40 B-Plex Rifle Scopes: This scope is ROCK SOLID. I have knocked this scope around hard while hunting (banged into trees and bounced off of rocks) and it continues to maintain it's zero and exceptional optical clarity. When I bought this scope the price was right and I figured if it worked out I got a great scope at a great price. If not I didn't waste a-lot of money. The Ballistic Plex reticle has become indispensable to me for long shots as well. Compared to other manufacturers drop compensating reticles the Burris seems much better to me. It is there when you need it but the lines are not so big as to be obtrusive as some others are.
What I don't like about the Burris Fullfield II 3-9X40 B-Plex: Two thing's initially annoyed me about this scope. 1st is the fact that the whole eyepiece turns rather than just a power ring as on other scopes. This precludes the use of a flip up caps especially on bolt action rifles. I have gotten used to this and will probably use the supplied bikini type covers on my next two scopes that are awaiting me when I get home. On the flip side it is nice to be able to just grasp the eyepiece and turn for power adjustments. The second thing that I found annoying (and still do) are the adjustment turrets. They are of the old coin style and seem rather mushy. They are not crisp and tactile like some other manufacturers. Despite my gripes about the adjustment turrets they are truly .25MOA. They are brass on brass and DO NOT MOVE once zeroed so this is only an issue when initially zeroing the scope or changing loads.
Rifle Scopes Fullfield II 3-9X40 B-Plex quality: The quality of construction is exceptional with only one minor complaint. The quality of the finish is not up to the standards of some higher priced scopes. Now I know this probably isn't fair to compare it to scopes costing twice as much or more but it is really the only thing I can find as far as construction quality. It does seem to scratch rather easily against rocks and trees but that in no way affects the operation of the scope.
Fullfield II 3-9X40 B-Plex summary: As you may have noticed I have said before that I have two more waiting for me at home. Despite it's minor faults I have purchased another FFII 3-9X40 to replace a more expensive scope on a custom rifle since my first one has served me so well for the past three years. I have also ordered a new Fullfield Euro 30mm 3-9X40 for a high end production rifle. I guess the fact that I just bought two more speaks volumes for these scopes. All Burris scopes also have a forever warranty regardless of the owner so I feel confident should I have any issues with any of them
