Droptine™ Riflescope 2-7x35mm is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 99.
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 4 out of 5 by from Burris Droptine 4.5 x 14 x 42 Nice Scope I have had this scope about 3 months now, and this scope is very easy to use and the range adjustments are super easy. I have taken deer so far with it at 130 yards and at 60 feet. Both shots were dead on, despite the significant magnification and range adjustments needed on the scope between the 100 yard setting and the <50 yard setting. I definitely recommend taking the time to site in at 100 yards and then shoot at 50 yards and 200 yards to have an accurate understanding of your particular projectile's trajectory. Don't just rely on the elevation hash marks in the scope. The light collection and clarity even in low light conditions is excellent, and the extra 5x magnification eliminates the need for a spotting scope at the range. My only complaint with this optic is the external lens will fog up repeatedly when the cold dawn air warms to morning light. So keep a lens cloth handy. I would definitely buy another Burris Droptine.

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 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 2 out of 5 by from Tried to reset my turret to zero and it broke I've had my 4.5x14 droptine for 2 years. Never had a problem. Today I was checking my point of impact for an upcoming hunt. After some minor adjustments I tried to zero my turret as per the instructions as I've done several times begore. The numbered ring suddenly started to turn very easily without any real effort at all. I do not have time to send the scope in for repairs as my hunt is in 2 weeks. I own 6 burris scopes and this is the first one to let me down. I'm curious if anyone else is having problems with zeroing as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the .22LR Since having purchased a 3-9x40 Droptine with the .22LR focus almost 18 months ago I have been impressed with the increased number of accurate hits I've been able to achieve in the 75m to 100m range. Using subsonic CCI ammo out to 100m on rabbits used to be impossible, now it's reliably achievable. I was so happy with the scope I've just purchased a second one for my other .22LR. I like the clarity of the optics, I love the ballistic plex and the overall scope appearance is stylish. A winning combination!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very crisp/clear after looking at all scopes in this catagorie,this one is the best dollar for dollar,and the balisticplex,is great for reaching out there giving you the peace of mind that you can make that 200 yard shot,for clean take down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had a great time zeroing this scope. It was accurate as far as MOA and I made my adjustments on the dial and I was on the bulls eye. Very clear and crisp reticle and the relief was just right for my 10/22.

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.
Date published: 2016-03-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very solid platform I really like the G2B Mil-Dot, using this on a ,22 cal PCP air rifle and it makes short work in calculating drop and windage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Was disappointed Initially I was happy with the droptine scope. I purchased it about and year ago and was sighting in my new rifle and after 6 shots the front part of the scope broke. In the process of trying to get it returned. Also the finish on the scope is sub par at best, least little thing touches it, it leaves a mark for eternity.

Is the first burris rifle scope I have owned went to the Web site burris offers and tried to trouble shoot the problems I was having with not being able to get it sighted in has no up and down moa. The only way to move the crosshairs is with the windage moa turret. I have changed rings and mounts nothing has solved the problem. Done to last option going to send to burris on Monday hopefully they can solve the issue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lens Caps? I'm not sure why the objective end is threaded. I had planned to buy flip-back (threaded) lens caps for the scope as caps were not included. It is marketed as an option for this scope, but after many hours of research, there is NOTHING available. The technical support team at Burris recommended Butler Creek flip up lens covers. Nothing against Butler Creek, but their caps are bulky, cumbersome, and restrictive on the ocular end. The Leupold, Zeiss, and Tenebraex (threaded) caps are much smaller, easier to work with.....an all around better designed product (in my opinion). I think Burris should make lens caps (sold separately) or include them when purchasing a scope. I also have a Fullfield II, it's a great scope. It's older and has lens caps. I believe Burris makes good products, but with all of the time wasted on the Droptine, this will be my last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scope Went to the range today to site in my new Burris scope. Mounted this baby on an AR15 and sited in at 100 yards then began shooting targets at 200 yards. Scope performed so well that this old man actually hit the bulls eye at that distance. Great product and great warranty. It's nice to find American company's that really stand behind their products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Scope Bought this to replace a scope I wasn't fond of. Love the clarity and since I reload and have a chronograph I am able to fun the ballistics program on your website and get distances for the hash marks. The only thing is I would like scope covers for the scope. Especially because flip up covers aren't very usable with the AO adjustment.

I have 6 fullfeild ll scopes on other rifles and will stick to that model in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope,Clear optics,easy to set up Didn't want to spend this much on a scope but glad I did. This is a high quality scope for the money.

I will be looking to buy another one of these for another gun.

Really like the simple Ballistic plex reticule, just chrono your bullet speed and the drop mark will be accurate. Just hope you work on mobile applications.

How do I change the turret caps from non graduated to numerical graduated caps on the Burris Droptine 4.5-14x42mm? I thought there would be a pin hole but cannot find any place to insert pin or place to insert small blade under caps.

Asked by: Anne
Hello, If you remove the turret cap you will find that the turrets have a small pinhole at the bottom of the turret collar. There are not exposed MOA caps available for the Droptine. The low profile adjustment knobs on Fullfield E1 riflescopes feature a finger adjustment for both windage and elevation.Once you have successfully zeroed your scope, you can set the zero on your dials with these simple steps: 1.With turret caps removed, grip or push down on knob top firmly to keep knob from turning. 2. Put pen or other small object into the small hole located on the dial, 180&ordm; from&ldquo;0&rdquo;. 3. Keeping firm grip or pressure on the knob, use the pen to turn the dial back to zero, lining up the number zero with the white indicator dot.Only the numbered dial should move &ndash; do not allow the entire knob to move or else you will alter your windage and elevation zero settings.
