Droptine™ Riflescope 3x-9x50mm is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 87.
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 Droptine 3x9x40 Just bought it to replace Nikon 3x9x40 I have more light now for those extra few minutes you need to shoot that big nasty Great product for the price I put in on my sons (9 years old)7mm08 savage axis and he is grouping his shots in a Dixie cup at 200 yards Take one to make one!!!!

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 5 out of 5 by from Can't go wrong with Burris! I love this scope went to the desert today did at least 600yard shooting with no problems hit my mark every time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope for the money! I bought this scope for a Ruger 10/22 Sporter. The quality is excellent, It has bright optics, and the 22 LR BDC works very well.
Date published: 2015-03-07
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.

On the droptine 2x7 35mm I want to mount on a 10/22 take down with quick detach rings. Can I use low profile rings? The ring guide I looked at said 36mm obj was the cutoff. I really don't want to go to med rings. Thank you

Asked by: money
For the Takedown version of the 10/22 I would definitely recommend Medium Rings.

Can I mount a droptine 3x9 40 on an Palmetto AR- 10? Little concerned about semi-auto 308's jarring it too much. Do I have to get an AR platform scope? Thank you.

Asked by: Downing
You will be fine. The recoil in gas guns is typically less of a concern than bolt actions because the gas system soaks up a large portion of felt recoil. All Burris Optics are rated to beyond .50BMG.

I have a droptine 4.5-14x42mm on my Lithgow LA101 22lr using Leupold rings. This is a great fit but there is not enough space to fit flip up caps. What are the details of the sunshade threading? I want to see if I can get a UV filter to protect the lens

Asked by: CurtD
The scope in question has an adjustable AO. If a product is installed into the threads and is not correct for this model, issues could become present and cause the AO to not adjust correctly.
