Droptine™ Riflescope 4.5-14x42mm is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Droptine 4-16x42 Ballistics Plex While I like the simplistic approach, the clear glass, and the overall quality of this scope... Only two things set this scope back in my mind. First is the coating on the scope is not as nice as others. It leaves white marks from brushing it up against anything that is some what ridged. The second being that Burris doesn't have a app for ballistics of multiple calibers, elevation, temperature, built on the retical you are using. IE I am shooting an AR15 in the 6.5 Grendel and their chart does not include this. I would like to be able to enter my info/dope and have it calculated. Overall I love it, but it could be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything works really well The 4.5-14X42 Droptine replaced an older 6X Burris Widefield I had on a sporter weight Ruger M77 MKII 22-250. The extra magnification really helps my 69-year-old eyes. When zeroing the rifle/scope the adjustments worked perfectly. The scope is typically Burris bright, which is an advantage at the indoor 100m range I was using. I quit shooting when I had a 1/2" three shot group off the sandbags at 100 yards. I could see myself pull the last shot to the left so it didn't join the first two in their common bullet hole.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clear As A Bell! Optics are very clear. I have the G2B Mil-Dot reticle...a little too "busy" for me but the mil-dots and hash marks are very clear. For my eyes, the 14X didn't seem to offer more than my other 12X scope, and I'm stepping up to something in the 18X to 20X range. I would recommend it to those who like the G2B Mil-Dot reticle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope and features. I bought this for my AR15 for coyote hunting and also a recent prairie dog hunt in which it preformed absolutely great. It replaced a smaller magnification scope and I'm very happy with it so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent quality for the money This scope is Awesome. The clarity and brightness of the lenses is incredible. The adjustable objective and magnification ring turn very smooth and work excellent. The scope is even crystal clear on 14 power and the turrets move the crosshairs as they should and the scope passed the box test. What else can i say. Things made by burris are top of the line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Burris Droptine 4-14 x 42 I bought this from Cabela's to put on an AR-10. I've got Burris Signatures on 3 other rifles and they are top notch/best scopes ever made. This new one cost less than half the price, is just as clear and is covered by the Burris Forever Warranty. Great deal, not like other manufacture's lower priced scopes that deliver lower price by cutting quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I think its a great Product!!!! I bought this scope and put it on my .257 Roberts. Bore sighted it it took only 6 clicks up and 10 clicks right. Took it and shot one shot at 50 yards, hit a quarter inch to the right and good on up and down. Went to 100 yards and shot two rounds grouped good it was 3 inches low and another quarter to the right. Made the adjustments to the scope as needed shot a three round group that you could dam near cover up with a nickel!!!! Great way to start out with a new scope! Six rounds shot and it was ready to go! I do reload though so Im sure that helped also. Went to 200 yards and shot 5 rounds to see how it grouped 3 out of the five could cover with a quarter and the other 2 were just out side the group about a 1/4 I can't complain there. The next day took it out hunting to harvest a doe, a doe walked out at 175 yards one shot right in the boiler maker, all said and done got a great scope and a great tasting doe!!!!! I think its a great scope for the money no complaints on my end!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Burris scopes :the all-around --go to scopes I replaced a good scope with a very good and better scope. One with a simple user- friendly , non tactical settings. should have bought the Burris in the first place. Very happy with the over-all looks and performance. Burris is my " go -to" scope company.

Will this scope fit Ruger #1, Varmint with the rings Ruger provides? Or do I need High ones?

Asked by: JR Ewing
I'm not sure what ring height the standard Ruger rings are, however if those rings do not work, Our #410991 and Medium Signature Zee rings should do the trick.

I recently purchased the Droptine 4.5-14x42mm for my M5 Aero Precision 308 build. What mount do you recommend? Can I use the AR-PEPR mount for this type of scope? Or is there a recommended ring and mount for this model? First timer here so be gentle!

Asked by: Essayons13
AR-PEPR would be the ideal mounting solution.
