Handgun Scope 2x20mm is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 77.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from most power for a pistol scope Among other scopes I have three of the 3-12X32mm scopes. Magnification is great for long range on a steady rest. On 12x you are not going to get your eye lined up holding the gun freehand and keep it there. Do not expect this scope to be your answer for long range freehand shots at 12x! When you learn your drop the ballisticplex is great for adding consistent hits at longer ranges. My complaint? I have had them for a few years and they get used. Seldom do I dial the reticle but 2 are going in for repair, one for the second time, Warranty was no problem and I expect it will be again. Came here to get mailing information and thought I would share my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is really, really nice. This scope went on a Browning Buckmark 7.5 in barrel. This is going to be the .22 benchrest pistol. Haven't had time to sight it in, but did a bore sight, and after a couple of minor adjustments, everything is lined up. Before the scope, the Buckmark was putting holes a little smaller than your pinky fingernail at 30 feet off a rest. Excited to see what this scope has to offer. A friend who is a top gun, recommended this to me, he has several Burris scopes on his pistols, and really likes them. Looking at various scopes, the Burris can stand on its on against the big names. Well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as a SCOUT SCOPE Hello All, I purchased this particular version to mount on a M1 Garand Scout rifle build. After reading my eyes blind on the Scout vs. Pistol scope issue. I decided to chance it and select a pistol scope, one reason was the higher magnification, and parallax adjustment. AWESOME SCOPE!!! Super Clear optics and it was in the bullseye on the FIRST SHOT!! WITHOUT BORE SIGHTING!! I've never have that happen. Magnification is great...This is my second Burris, the other is on a RUger BlackHawk Hunter, both have been awesome !!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall very satisfied This scope is mounted on my 12" .460 S&W mag handgun. I needed to get out to 200 meters and the typical 8x magnification is not quite enough. Even maxed out to 12x the Burris has a reasonably good eye relief, you do have to search around but it is what it is. The glass quality is excellent and only marginally less quality than the Leupold 2.5-8x scope. Customer service deserves a positive plug as well. I lost a turret cap and called Burris and explained, and they sent a replacement no charge . Thank you !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from one tough scope I bought this 2x7 32mm handgun scope year ago and mounted it on my smith and wesson 460xvr. I can see target very well at 100yds and I am able to shoot 1.5" groups with it. the clarity is exceptional. I have had other brand scopes on this gun before and the recoil manages to destroy them. so far I have run150 round of 460 ammo thru this gun and scope has stayed clear. Any problems I have had with other Burris scopes, customer service has always took care of the problem including replacing my rifle scope. The forever warranty is real.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Reliable I have four of these scopes mounted on some tough kickers like a T/C Contender in 358 JDJ and a T/C Encore in 30/06. Despite the knocks of travel and recoil, these scopes hold their zero.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding. Clear bright optics, very durable I purchased my scope to mount on a Ruger Redhawk in 44magnum. I use my Redhawk for deer and pig hunting so I use full house rounds. I practice with full house as well, as I am a better shot on the hunt if I practice with my hunting rounds. My Burris handgun scope has held zero since I installed it and zeroed it. My next Rifle scope will be a Burris.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handgunning Whitetails with Burris 2X7 My Fifth Whitetail from the Southern Black Hills area. All taken with a Smith and Wesson Performance Center 629 44 mag and Burris 2X7 Scope and projecting a Hornady 200 grain XTP. I used an Extinguisher Call sounding Doe Bleats and Rutting Grunts to bring within 60 yards. I had a quartering shot, it a little high but after a short 20 yard sprint was down. The year before I took a much larger 4 pointer at just under 50 yards using the Smith and Wesson Performance Center 629 Topped with the Burris 2X7, he went down just where he stood. I reload a 200 grain bullet with max H110, I shoot 500 to 600 rounds a year prior to the November Season with these Hunting loads, the Burris 2X7 takes all the punishment and holds it Zero! The Burris 2X& make my 69 year old eyes seam like 29. I will be back at it again in 2018!

I am setting up the fixed 2x20 handgun scope.  what is eye relief range?  I assume I can loosen lock nut and turn eyepiece to get focus at comfortable arm's length. 

Asked by: JohnC
There is no adjustment for eye relief, do not loosen and screws or nuts on the optic. Here is the eye relief from the specs: 10 - 24 in.

We don't have a specific one for the Handgun scopes. There are various generic zip tie type options available on amazon.com however. I would recommend one of those.

All of the Handgun scopes we have will be second/rear focal plane optics.

Asked by: Tot7
Hello, If it says "Do Not Remove" it is a posi skirt. If it is knurled with a small screw inside, that is a posi-lock system.
