Rated 2 out of 5 by from Waiting on customer service!!!! I bought the tac30 scope to complement my new bushmaster 223 rifle. I purchased this online from cabelas and as soon as I opened the box I knew something wasn't right. First of all it didn't take a Guinness to figure out this product had already been opened or possibly returned and sold again. But that being said, without mounting yet the optics look great. The only issue I have is with the battery install on the scope itself. Direction are a bit vague and it seems like the metal tabs where you install the battery either get in the way or simply try to fold over. I've tried emailing the company about this issue, but haven't been given a response yet. Hopefully I will get this resolved soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great SHort to Medium Distance Scope I have had this scope for almost two years now, and am generally very happy with it. I find the sight picture is easy to acquire, and the optical clarity of the glass is quite good. It's also good and sturdy - being knocked around doesn't seem to bother it. I find the reticle easy to acquire and use, and love the fact that it is etched, so you don't lose it when the battery dies (as it inevitably will, and at the worst possible time). One tiny niggle though is the illumination brightness adjustment. I seem to have trouble finding the same setting from use to use. I would have preferred a conventional rotary switch, with markings so I could find the same setting over and over again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal clear My best scope that I’ve bought to date. Came with two different top scope rings,( picatinny and smooth) two sets of turret knobs (madd open turrets and covered. You can run it with an open elevation turret and a covered wind age turret. The mini red dot makes this an astonishing deal. It comes mounted on the scope. I removed mine and put it on a Ruger MK2 with an additionally purchased mount. The scope comes pre-mounted and ready to put on a picatinny. Buy this for you ar and you won’t be disappointed. Glass is super clear, reticle is illuminated and very easy to see. You can get plenty of adjustment with your madd knobs if you remove them and reset the zero stop. People have been complaining about running out of adjustments. Just read the manual...easy to do

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Burris XTR II 1.5-8 combo leaked dust into scope. Purchased this scope package to mount on a collectable semi auto tactical 5.56 nato calibered rifle in Dec 2015. Took rifle to the range 3 times since mounting scope on rifle of which only stationary target shooting from a bench was done, & once to a casual tactical shooting match in Aug 2017. Before the tactical match, I noticed dust particles inside the scope, but did not give it much thought as I thought is was just the lenses that got dirty. After match, I cleaned lenses with lens pen, & to my amazement, the dust was inside the scope tube itself on the inner lenses. It was only a couple small particles here & there, so was not a deal breaker to me. After the match I cleaned rifle & put it back in the safe until May 2018 when started preparing for a range day. When I picked up the rifle (which had scope caps on its entire life) the lenses was FULL of dust inside scope. It is so dusty inside scope that it makes the reticle look granulated. I then proceded to use a different rifle for the range day. I also then noticed the reticle illumination has since stopped working. I replaced battery with brand new duracell battery, but nothing. It occasionally goes on when turning the knob between the brightness settings, but then goes off again, & doesnt work until it accidentally makes contact again. I really had high hopes for this scope, & really hope I just had a dud. The FFP reticle on this scope is truely amazing, & the burris fastfire that came with the scope worked fantastic. Turrets are really nice, & tactile + tracks very well. Scope has never lost zero after zeroing the first time, so very happy with that. I will be returning scope to dealer & hope the next one is better. I really want to like this scope. Was not what I expected from a medium budget cqb scope after only light duty use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Flakes inside scope I purchased this scope brand new. I mounted the TAC30 1-4X24 on top of an Ar-15. I have not shot the AR-15 with scope on it yet and when I looked through the scope I saw two flakes which look like metal(aluminum) inside resting on the front lense. I say metal because when I used my flashlight to see inside the front lense I could see light reflecting off the flakes. So I'm assuming they are metal shavings. I then worked the bolt of the AR a few times to try and get the pieces to move and one did. Now I only see one flake but the other is floating around somewhere inside. I'm still debating whether to send it back to Burris or just use the scope as is. Again, I haven't even shot with the scope yet. It had the metal flakes present without any gun recoil breaking them loose. Quality control is a little lacking for a scope that costs this much. Still an awesome scope which most people give great reviews. Definitely disappointed in mine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Combo Scope System I didn't give five stars because the instructions on installing the CR2032 battery in the TAC30 are insufficient for a new owner/user. A separate flyer describing proper battery installation is needed. If the CR2032 battery is not pushed firmly and fully to the bottom of the battery compartment, the push button switch does not work properly. Just placing the CR2032 battery in the top of compartment and screwing down the battery cap/switch button will not fully seat the battery. It took me about thirty minutes to troubleshoot why the push button switch wouldn't work properly. Improper battery installation and seating is the root of the switch problems. The included Burris Fast Fire III does not have this type of battery installation problem. The Fullfield TAC30 optics and reticle are great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lot of scope for the money Found a good sale on the TAC 30 paired w the Fast Fire III and the Burris PEPR mount 4 months ago. Both optics are nice and crisp and hold their zeros through the knocks and bumps I've given them. When unmounting and mounting the scope on my AR 15 it may only be a click off on windage at 100 yds. I was so pleased w the TAC 30 I just ordered the Fullfield E1 and another PEPR mount for my second AR. Anytime friends or family are looking for a new optic I'd definitely tell them to take a look at the line of Burris optics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope I bought this scope a month ago but never really had a chance to use it till this week cause of the weather. Had it out Sunday and got it sighted in finally. I really liked shooting with it. Its just what I wanted for my AR. Hopefully I'll have a chance to get a couple coyotes with it. The only thing I didn't like was turning the reticile off, I had to use my finger nail cause just pushing on it with my thumb wasn't enough to switch it, mayby I just got to push harder I don't know. But the scope and reticile are great. Very clear focus on the scope and both are easy to bring on target. Very glad I bought it. We have coyotes running thru our property on a regular basis and I think the setup I got with this gun and scope is perfect for thinning them out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price! I bought this for my AR. My intent was to be able to shoot accurately up to three hundred yards, while also realizing that two hundred or less would be my norm. In this regard it is excellent. Though I didn't think I would really utilize the FastFire III, I have fallen in love with it. If I had to ding the TAC30, it would be that the illuminated reticle doesn't work in bright sunlit conditions. I have had an issue with this when I was shooting at a black target and couldn't make out the reticle from the target.
Date published: 2017-04-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One great scope system I bought the Skulltac version of this set up. The optics are incredibly clear. It is dead-on accurate. It is easy to site-in and ready to go right out of the box. The Fastfire red dot is of excellent quality and clarity. I love this scope and will get more for other rifles in the future.
Date published: 2015-03-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from tac30 review Nice finish, looks great. red dot in in center seemed a little large for shooting at 16 inc Dia. steel plates at 180 yards. Clear glass and sharp reticle. on - off button did stick in occasionally. I fixed it by spreading the fingers that held the battery. Over all a good scope
Date published: 2014-10-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simplicity, over everything! Got a couple of physical issues as I age that limit what I can realistically do with fancy optics, so I tried the LRS/PEPR combination on my RRA LAR-15 Tactical. Mounted it in less than 10 minutes and was off zero by less than 2 inches because the PEPR is so solid a mount. Brought it to a beautiful zero with a 3 shot group followed by a 2 shot and a second 2 shot. Sold my expensive, but great, scope/mount combo I have on my Armalite Tac 18 on the way home from the range. I'll be buying an LRS/PEPR combo for it this week. Probably going to one for my Ruger Scout .308, as I shoot deer at ranges of less than 200m. Face it, folks. We aren't all capable of Chris Kyle marksmanship, so go with the simple LRS/PEPR combo and feel really good about your range day on the way home every time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT glass, Burris manged to mess up the rest Can I ask, what genius at Burris thought it was a good idea to mount a 556 dedicated and calibrated scope into a 20MOA PERP mount? So, range of adjustment for turrets is really minimal on this scope, so once you mount it on a rifle - you find out that at 100m one is shooting 9" high with elevation turret maxed out... again, any thought on putting this into a 0MOA mount? at the price point, any thought of having a meaningful and usable turret range which can actually adjust in excess of 4"? I hope Burris is reading this review and actually does some product testing with this! FN15 and SIG556 both could not and did NOT work with this $1100 kit. 20MOA on a 556 scope?!? I did not know that this 8x scope is being used for 1000m shots but can't be calibrated for 100m out of the box...
Date published: 2019-05-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome scope at the price point Nice overall optic for the price point. Glass is clear but I had to adjust the optical focus to fix the fish eye view. You can’t beat this kit for the price. I do like the XTR ii model much better but this one is half the price. If it’s going on a gun that you shoot a lot, buy the xtr ii. If it’s for a gun that is not used very often or you don’t have the cash for the xtr ii, this one is fine. The optic is very nice and you wouldn’t know any difference if you have never looked through a xtr ii.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope!!!! Got this for last Christmas and put it on a week ago took to the range ( back deck ) 4 rounds later and the tac30 and fast fire was sighted in and my 12 year old daughter loves it absolutely enilalated the target/Miller lite can @ 40 yards. Great little battle sight. If you haven't done the 27 meters sight in I recommend trying it. Do so research on it works great for a battle sight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality, User friendly Goes perfectly with my 16” barrel BCM. Very easy to sight in. No problem getting 1/2 dollar groups at 100 yards, once I found the right ammunition. Same performance as my friends Nightforce, at less than 1/2 the cost. Would recommend in a heartbeat! Really love the CQB reticule. Extremely clear glass! Only complaint, did not come with lens covers.
Date published: 2019-06-21
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quality Assurance let me down. Mounted my TAC30 on my Ruger SR-762 and after every round the illumination shut off. If I push up on the eye piece the Illumination comes back on. Something isn't put together correctly. It is a shame because otherwise the scope is amazing.
Date published: 2015-07-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from CQB sight Bought for my first personal build, have 8 1/2 yrs experience with ar's. Did 6 months worth of research before buying the tac 30 and dont regret it. Illumination adjustment is something i liked in the m68, adjustment on the fly per the BDC is a plus. All in all, worth the money. Just wish would come with ARD and flip up dust protectors
Date published: 2016-08-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the optics I really like the reticle on this scope. You can illuminate it in low light or use it in daylight without illumination. When it is on 1x it works like a red dot site in that you shoot both eyes open and center the circle. The fastfire isn't needed however when purchased together it is a good value and can be used on another weapon.
Date published: 2017-12-14
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Reticle does not shut off Bought at Sportsmans Warehouse locally. The reticle would never shut off completely leaving a slight glow in the OFF position. Not knowing the technlogy I thought it was a residual current. Rarely use the illumination but when I come to use oit the battery is flat. Going back to Burris to repair/replace, but at my cost.
Date published: 2017-07-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bang fo your Buck I have been shopping around for a quality scope. I didn't want to pay an enormous amount for a scope. After shopping around I found this Burris TAC30 and to my surprise it had everything I wanted. This is by far a superior quality made scope at a very reasonable price. I would highly recommend this scope.
Date published: 2018-07-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sig Sauer MCX 300 Blackout I have had no trouble getting the Fullfield TAC30 mounted and zeroed in at 100 yards. The scope is an excellent addition to the MCX. We plan to use this rifle for mid-range shots in 3 Gun competitions. The scope is crystal clear and the variable brightness illuminated reticle is spot on.
Date published: 2017-09-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it so far I haven't got to use this much yet but so far I really like it. Scope was almost right on from factory, fastfire lll needed adjustment but there was plenty of travel on it to do so. Nice buy on the combo pack. Using it on a LR 308 and want to see how well the BDC reticle is calculated.
Date published: 2015-05-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great features for the money. High quality build bought this scope as well as the PEPR mount on recommendation of my dealer without seeing it. Both the scope and mount are of very high quality for the money. I love the illuminated reticle. I easily hit the inner circles at 100 yards on every shot.
Date published: 2016-02-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing scope in the price range! I initially had been looking at scopes that list for another $100-150. Once I looked through this the decision was easy. Very good clarity, nice eye relief and a lifetime warranty. All for under $300. Great deal for target, tactical or 3-gun.
