Droptine™ Riflescope 3-9x40mm is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Droptine 3x9x40 Just bought it to replace Nikon 3x9x40 I have more light now for those extra few minutes you need to shoot that big nasty Great product for the price I put in on my sons (9 years old)7mm08 savage axis and he is grouping his shots in a Dixie cup at 200 yards Take one to make one!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb product I have owned several Burris products through the years. None have failed to give less than superior service. Some have been "DROP CHECKED" a couple of times without losing zero or sustaining other damage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First impressions Just bought this scope but haven't mounted or used yet. Very clear, nice weight and really like the simple ballistic plex reticle. Having a uncluttered reticle that gives the shooter a quick guide for use for ranges up to 500 or 600 yards is far more useable to most shooters then all the adjustment knobs, etc on most heavier scopes. If I could change anything...the top vertical line on all reticles unnecessarily clutters view and benefits nothing. I would make heavier portion of crosshairs farther from intersection and the hash marks seem too close together and too uniform to be realistic trajectory for most popular cartridges, but I haven't fired it yet so could be off on that. Nice scope, good weight and size, good useable reticle and good price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good scope, good clarity,and tracks very good. only complaint I have is the crosshairs are a little heavy for target shooting, but target acquisition is good for hunting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All around great scope I've been using the Burris droptine 3-9x40 for a couple months now, it's an excellent rim fire scope and is quite clear to look through out to 2-300 yards. I haven't had any problems with it and it's treated my right, the only reason why I didn't give it the full 5 stars if because I find that it's fairly firm to adjust the magnification dial, it makes it pretty hard to maintain a steady rest while looking through the scope and trying to zoom in or out to a different power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope. Burris scopes are like a Ruger firearm excellent quality for a fair price. What more can you say!

Hi, I am looking for a 3 x 9 x 40 scope to put on a Savage 220 20ga slug gun, what do you suggest? I will also need base and rings, any help would be appreciated. 

Asked by: HFDChief
For a slug gun I recommend the Droptine, as we have a model that has a Ballistic Plex reticle more closely matched to Slug Guns.

On the droptine 3x9x40, can you rest the , or slip the turrets, back to zero? Or would it be possible if target knobs observed were installed ?

Asked by: ENCpirate
To re-zero the Droptine (E1) target knob, find the small hole drilled in to the plastic number ring surrounding the turret – it will usually be either directly below the “0” mark, or on the far side of the number ring from the “0” mark, usually near either “7” or “9”. Use a small implement, such as a tiny screwdriver or a paper clip, to get ahold of the edge of that small hole and use it to drag the number ring around the turret until the zero mark lines back up with the centerline of the scope. Please note, it is friction that keeps the number ring in place, so you will likely need to hold on to the top of the turret itself to prevent it from clicking.

I recently ordered a Droptine 3-9X40 and apparently clicked the centerfire (200017) model instead of the 22LR model (200019). I do like the 100 yard parallax vs the 50 yard of the 22LR. Will the recticle still be pretty close for use with the 22LR ? Or sh

Asked by: RAY1
You should be just fine with the centerfire model on a .22lr. You should not have any problems.
