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.

Fullfield II™ Riflescope 3-9x40mm is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 245.
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 Great Scope! Great Price! This is one of many Burris scopes that I have purchased over the last 40 years. They all are very dependable and I have "NEVER" had any problems with any of them. For the price they can not be beat. What I like most about them is the fact that they all have excellent low light capabilities. You can look through the scope at dusk or dawn and they actually make everything look brighter then it actually is. They are always clear and crisp also. A+++

Sometimes the Fullfield II is listed in silver and other times nickel. Are these the same? Optics planet even lists it as silver but in nickel finish. Trying to get scope to match matte chrome remington model 7

Asked by: Coolerking
Hello, Yes they will be the same, they are just referring to the general color. We do not offer chrome scopes.

How would the Fullfield 4.5-14X42 work on a Weatherby Vanguard in 30-06? Also, any idea on the best scope rings/best scope ring height for this scope on that rifle? Thanks in advance!

Asked by: Jack777777777777
That would be a good combo. I would use your choice of Picatinny rail, and Signature Zee Rings in Medium.
