MSR Riflescope™ 3-9x40mm is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not MSR only, Everything I need in a hunting scope I bought this scope for the absolue oposite gun it was designed for, and im glad i did. This is designed for a modern sporting rifle. I needed a scope for A levergun. I find MSRs shoot real flat and can make tight little groups at moderate range. My old cowboy rounds drop off much faster and are harder to shoot at moderate ranges due to the bullet drop. This scope allows you to quickly dial 16 inchs of drop in one turn of the turret. Now its designed for the 223 but my 38-55 if zero at 100 is -6 at 150 and - 13 at 200. Thats hard to estimate in the field but this scope is clearly marked 1-16 on the dial. I think i can adapt it to any leverload for 200 yard hunting. Overall quality is good, image is fine for dawn dusk hunting here in SC we get 1 hour before and after offical sun up/ down and I think the burris is better than anything in this price range. Im shooting heavy recoiling handloads and have no problem with holding or returning to zero. I could give this scope a near perfect recomendation if it were made in 1-5 x 40 or a fixed 3 power. The only other slight is the art department got a little crazy there is a lot of writing all over the scope; Burris , MSR twice and 223 twice. I found i could rub it off with nail polish remover as I wanted a more classic look. The only thing close to this scope in quality size, features and price is the Leupold CDS vx2 and I dont think it can be had for less than twice what I paid for the Burris. As for its design, I think this scope on an MSR with a Dnz freedom mount would be a fantastic light kicking, durrable hunting rig.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Burris, top quality, lifetime warranty Bought this MSR 22 to drop on a new A-17 Savage 17 HMR. Needed the 50 yd focus for the 17 and will figure the drop on the range finder dots when I get to the range. Scope dropped on the rifle beautifully with Burris Medium Zee Rings. Nice compact, scope was needed for the semi auto 17 with its light barrel. Handles beautifully and shoots a dime at 50 yds. Anxious to get it on the bench for some testing on the range reticule. Very satisfied with setup. Thank you Burris and Savage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well made and precise I just bought this and have only used it once, but was impressed. The optics are sharp and the adjustments very positive and precise. It seems very solidly made. I haven't tried it at ranges longer than 100 yards, but at 100 yards when I moved the point of aim to the longer range crosshairs it raised the point of aim by the amount I would have predicted based on the trajectory of the bullet I was using.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great glass, adjustments and finish! Bought two of these; one for my AR-15 and another for my LR-308. Both quickly dialed into zero which hasn't changed yet. Adjustments track well! Optics are super clear and bright.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Scope looks awesom mounted on my AR15! The lens are perfectly clear, I thought I could never afford a Burris Scope... Price was great! Also used the Burris mount system... I'm glad I bought this scope and would recommend to anyone that's in the market to check this one out! I'm sure you will feel the same....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth it i was given a brand new msr 3x9 as a gift from my cousin. very clear glass. i was hitting 24"x24" plates at 800m all weekend long with this. easy to sight in. holds zero very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I purchased this for an HK91 in hopes of saving money for a higher end scope. After mounting and sighting in I'm so pleased with the accuracy at all magnification's and the clarity that I won't need that higher end scope. It stand's up great under the heavy semi auto 308 recoil and the eye relief helps with quick target acquisition.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Glass is OK, tube is not so OK. Mounted this scope on my rifle and torqued the Leupold steel rings to spec. 28lbs. And it bent the tube. I did a lot of research on scopes and figured Burris was the way to go. I have other Burris scopes that were torqued the same with out issues.

At the risk of asking a silly question; is the MSR 200137 suitable for use on an AR-10/LR-308 platform other than the BDC is calibrated for .223/5.56NATO? Will it handle the heavier recoil for the life of the scope?

Asked by: jm190
Yes, I asked a silly question. If you look at the construction of the other Burris 3-9X40mm scopes they are very similar other than turrets and reticles. Why would a manufacturer make something less substantial for one particular class of rifle. I bought two; one for my AR-15 and one for my LR-308 and haven't had any issues yet! See review!

Why is it that in pictures next to 200136 and 200137, some display target style elevation knobs while others don't? What model number do I order to ensure that I get the target style elevation knob?

Asked by: airtight_python
The MSR riflescope comes standard with finger adjustable knobs.
