I purchased this Burris scout 2.75X20mm for my Marlin 336 Dark after having problems with the Vortex Crossfire II 2-7x32 scout scope. The Vortex would not work with low rings and then with the medium rings it did not have enough adjustment in the elevation to zero. The Burris 2.75x20mm combined with the Burris Xtreme Tactical Rings - 1" ,low were a perfect fit right out of the box. The glass is clear and I had no problem zeroing the scope. The magnification is perfect for the scout application on my Marlin 336 chambered in 30-30! I am very happy I ditched the Vortex scope and got this Burris. It is a refreshing improvement in workmanship, fit, and usability.
I purchased one of these 6 months ago for a 45-70, and I liked it so much I had to buy another scout rifle just so i could outfit it with one of these scopes. Slim and lightweight yet solidly built and the excellent glass clarity that weve all come to expect from Burris. Next time I need a scope Ill look to Burris hands down.
Mounted on my hunting rifle, custom M91-59 in 7.62x54R. It takes the recoil and holds zero, mounted in leupold QWR low rings. My only suggestion is making the 2.75x20 available with illuminated reticule. No complaints though!
I mounted this scope on my M1-A scout with an Ultimak rail using XTR low rings. It hugged the rifle so closely I had to remove the front and rear sights. Just 9 clicks down in elevation was all it took to zero using match grade ammo. Well, a picture is worth a thousand words. This rifle and scope combo shoot like a laser. Looking forward to filling my tag this fall.
