Fullfield II™ Riflescope 3-9x40mm

It doesn't get more iconic than this. The Fullfield II is the classic Burris scope, remaining in high demand for years, and getting passed down from father to child. And the 3-9x size is the classic Fullfield size, in use by hunters all across the country.

3-9x40 is a great choice for driven hunts, stalking in forested timber, tree stands, and with a top end of 9x, pushing the ethical range from intermediate to fairly long distances.

Burris has three different 3-9x40 Fullfield II scopes:

200161 features a simpler, classic Plex reticle.
200162 and 200169 both use the Ballistic Plex reticle, which provides more information to the shooter. 

200162 is matte black and 200169 is nickel.

The Burris Forever Warranty™ protects your scope no matter how many times you take it hunting.

Suggested Retail Price: $239 - $287

Fullfield II™ Riflescope 3-9x40mm is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 262.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Workmanship I purchased this scope a couple of years ago and up to now it has been flawless. I've own other Burris scopes and have but total satisfaction with their ability to gather light, remain clear and adjust positively through all kinds of conditions whether in the field or at the range. Although the 6.5x20x50mm Fullfield II I purchased at this moment is failing to hold it's adjustment. I'll be sending it back per Burris' requirement knowing there will be as much quality in mitigating and making the repairs as the product itself because Burris stands by their product for a lifelong customer relationship.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still a very much a quality product! I have been using Burris scopes for the past 15 years. I have tried other brands but I was never satisfied and kept comparing them to Burris. The 4.5-14X42 that I recently purchased, is of the same quality scope that I purchased 15 years ago. The 15 year old scope is still going strong and is on my favorite deer rifle. I am glad that I can count on a great product just by seeing the Burris name on it. I currently have over 25 Burris rifle scopes ranging from the old Fullfields and Signature Selects to the newer Fullfield II's along with binoculars and 1 spotting scope. Please bring back the Signature Selects please. Thanks, Rick

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Geat Scope, great value. I bought this scope about half a year ago, put hundreds of rounds through it already. It is very bright, clear, and crisp. Most of the other scopes I looked at had only a 30MM objective lenses and the Burris had a 35MM. (more light transmission) They were recommended thru my brother who loves the Burris scopes. I have always been a bowhunter, but recently bought a .308 for Northwoods hunting. This scope is perfect for that! I've gotten into some serious shooting since and the Burris scopes are great performers. Add in the fact that they are priced better than most of the other big name scopes, and you're getting a Great product at a value price. Look and compare, you'll see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been using my 3x9 Fullfield II on my Win Mod 70 300WSM for 8 years. I developed a very accurate 180gr load at 2800fps and the BDC reticle is unbelievably accurate. Zeroed at 100yds the scope hits dead on at 100, 200 and 300 yards, is 2" low at 400 yards and 3" low at 500 yards. Most of my shots on Colorado mule deer and elk are 250-400 yards. Last year I shot a beautiful 4x4 mule deer at 644 yards standing off sticks. While a shot that long is not what the scope is designed for, with lots of practice and a thorough knowledge of ballistics it performed flawlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Scopes! I bought this scope about 3 months ago. I am an avid hunter and have guided professionally for deer and antelope. I have had the opportunity to experience all types of scopes in the field and would not begin to tell you that some of the most expensive elite scopes are not wonderful pieces of hunting equipment. What I will tell you is that the Burris scopes are also excellent hunting scopes for their ruggedness, clarity and positive pin point accuracy adjustments and I love the ballistic plex reticule. When you consider the cost and the life time warranty it's any easy decision and that's why I now own four Burris scopes and would recommend them to my friends, as I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best glass I have ever purchased! I bought this scope last year, and have used it extensively through deer season last year, and my son used it during youth deer weekend. It has seen all forms of weather, and I have NEVER had it fog up or had any other problem! I use it on a 44 magnum rifle, and it has held true since it was mounted. The major benefit to me is how much light it pulls in and brightens the early mornings and in the evenings. With my eyesight not being what it used to, it really makes the hunt much more enjoyable and gives me more confidence. Have family & friends with much more expensive glass not be able to see as clear, and have had fogging when I have not. Best quality and purchase for the money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought this cope on May 20/16, mounted it on my rifle June 3. went to the range the next day, shot at 100 yards on 9 power, it was dead on, very clear picture. Moved to 200 yards, turned it to 14 power it was out of focus so tried to focus, it wouldn't focus no matter what I did. Moved it to 9 power again very clear. Moved back to 14 power and adjusted the objective lens, it still wouldn't focus. I wasn't very unhappy by this time. I have a Burris C 4 and I love it so I bought another Burris, this one was a disappointing. I am hoping the retail store will take it back or exchange it for me. I like Burris products and I will buy another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mil-Dot reticle works! I bought the 6.5-20X 50 mm FF II scope for my .300 RUM rifle knowing I would be shooting at long distance. I practiced at ranges from 100 to 450 yards for months prior to my elk hunt in Utah. I could hit a 6" bulls-eye at 450 yards off my bipod in the prone position with consistency. November came around and my son spotted the 6x6 bull elk of my dreams at 552 yards, I just knew I could make the shot. I got settled in on my bipod prone in a clearing and adjusted the parallax. I held between the 500 and 600 yard stadia lines and lightly pressed the trigger. Boom, down elk. One shot in the lungs at 552 yards. I couldn't have done without the Burris scope. Thanks tons Burris amigos!

I bought one of these scopes and put it on my Savage 110 BA Stealth Evolution chambered in .338 lapua. I have the drop maxed on the up side and still shooting a foot below the reticle at 100 yards. So what’s wrong?

Asked by: Evans9
Hello, Since your scope has a one inch tube, I would be sure to check your mounts and make sure the rifle doesn't have a 20MOA base. If you are out of adjustment it represents a very slight misalignment in the mounting. The reason many other scopes will work when a Burris will not is that we use larger guide tubes in our scopes. This creates a noticeable increase in brightness and clarity, with the sacrifice of a little adjustment. To compensate for this we invented our Signature Rings in the 70's. These rings negate the need for shims, as they have posi-align inserts that allow you to cant the scope in the direction needed to zero your rifle. Please take a look at the links below for more information.  http://www.burrisoptics.com/signature-rings http://www.burrisoptics.com/mounting-systems/rings/xtr-signature-ringsyoutub

Is the objective lens 56 mm or 42 mm? What is the difference between 'objective lens diameter 56 mm' and 'clear objective lens diameter 42 mm' that is listed in the specs? Makes a big difference regarding scope ring height.

Asked by: Jake M
56mm would refer to the outer diameter of the metal on the objective, aiding in a more accurate measurement. The clear lens diameter is the more commonly quoted.

The manual shows an eye piece locking ring and how to adjust. My 3x9x40 scope does not have one (it appears) and turning the power adjustment ring turns the entire eyepiece so the lettering/name now turns also. Is this the way it is supposed to work?

Asked by: Dave2019
Hello, That is how they are supposed to work. The Fullfield II has an eyepiece that is linked to the magnification system.

Hi I have a full field II 4.5X14 would like to confirm what the circles mean under the cross hairs, currently my 22/250 is zeroed at 150 yds.
