Handgun Scope 3-12x32mm is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as a SCOUT SCOPE Hello All, I purchased this particular version to mount on a M1 Garand Scout rifle build. After reading my eyes blind on the Scout vs. Pistol scope issue. I decided to chance it and select a pistol scope, one reason was the higher magnification, and parallax adjustment. AWESOME SCOPE!!! Super Clear optics and it was in the bullseye on the FIRST SHOT!! WITHOUT BORE SIGHTING!! I've never have that happen. Magnification is great...This is my second Burris, the other is on a RUger BlackHawk Hunter, both have been awesome !!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall very satisfied This scope is mounted on my 12" .460 S&W mag handgun. I needed to get out to 200 meters and the typical 8x magnification is not quite enough. Even maxed out to 12x the Burris has a reasonably good eye relief, you do have to search around but it is what it is. The glass quality is excellent and only marginally less quality than the Leupold 2.5-8x scope. Customer service deserves a positive plug as well. I lost a turret cap and called Burris and explained, and they sent a replacement no charge . Thank you !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the Best Hand Gun Scopes out there. I rated it as a 4/5 stars, It is a good scope, probably the best out there but I think there is room for improvement in some areas. The Scope on 12 power you really need to stay still with a very movement because the there is little room for any movement or your site of view is gone, When you drop down it power it is way better, This has improved over earlier models but still not great. The 3X12 is missing the Posi Lock feature which I have never had movement in my scope but it would love the insurance if it did. The Turrets are Ok, they move and click Ok but when you get to the end of the up/down or right/left it gets tight and you need a coin. They had target knobs at one time and I wish they still made them but at the current 1/8 MOA not 1/2" MOA, But overall the scope is good, Best option out there for now with the highest magnification. With some improvement is could be great !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Old Thompson center contender I just mounted this 3×-12× pistol scope on my 1977 Thompson Center Contender. The fit and size is perfect. I do not plan on shooting past 175 yards and I can see this is a perfect companion for my gun. The scope has lots of adjustment, the glass is crystal clear, quality construction built. Everything one would expect from Burris

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scout rifle optic Great on Savage Scout 7.76X39. Crystal clear opticall the way to X12. Adjustable objective a bit to stretch to reach as a Scout rifle optic,but scope works very well. 3X12 power perfect! Really like this scope...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like the scope Very happy with the scope, except the windage adjustment is stiff. Does not have positive clicks like the elevation adjustment. Will have to return for repair. Poor quality control

Would this scope work as well on M1A Scout Rifle?  Was wanting a long eye relief scope, but would like more magnification than the Scout Scope. Thanks

Asked by: Halon Shooter
It could be possible to get this to work using a cantilevered scope ring/mount and the rifle's scout rail. However this could lead to potential ejection issues if the scope hangs over the receiver too much.

All Burris Scopes are recoil tested to beyond 50BMG, in both directions. (taking airguns into consideration). Your scope will absolutely hold up to 30 06.

Hello, I have read my eyes blind on scout vs. handgun scopes, this would be mounted on an M1 Garand Scout rifle, eye relief apprx. 10 Inches, would this work? And what about at max magnification? I would think the parallax adjustment would help...

Asked by: garandshooter
Yes. Scout scopes and handgun scopes have very similar eye relief.
