MTAC™ Riflescope 1.5-6x42mm

The big brother MTAC moves from 1-4x to 1.5-6x. That extra magnification can make a big difference when the range officers move those targets a few hundred yards further out.

This compact model is perfect for 3-Gun, close quarter battle (CQB), or big-game stalking.

Available with the  Ballistic AR reticle (200439) or the Ballistic CQ reticle.

And the warranty is forever.

MTAC™ Riflescope 1.5-6x42mm is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 97.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from MTAC A Lot Of Scope For A Lot Less Money This Burris MTAC 1.5-6 X 42mm is my second Burris scope that I've bought. My first Burris scope a XTR 1.5-6 X 40mm that I mounted on a AR-10 build made me a Burris enthusiast. First thing I noticed was that my new Burris MTAC scope was packaged great. The matte finish matches my AR-15 perfectly. Looking through the glass is super clear, I'm sure the 30mm tubes help with the clarity. The illuminated reticle is crisp, and clear with a wide range of adjustment. Weighing in at just 15.5 oz. the MTAC scope is a perfect match for my AR-15.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great choice for 3 gun I have been using the Tac-30 for about 6 months, this is a wonderful piece of equipment! Targets at 50 yards or less on 1 power works just like a red dot with both eyes open, I have reached out to 300 yards in a competition and experienced a 1 shot hit several times. I have never fired it with the reticle illuminated, it is black normally and is very easy to see in the daytime, I am sure that in a low light situation, the illuminated reticle would be awesome. My only complaint is I would have preferred a little more magnification, maybe 1-6, but definatly not a deal breaker! I would definatly recommend this product! Phillip

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope for a coyote rifle Nothing has let me down about this scope. The mtac is a hunting scope for sure and don't let it get u down shooting at paper, in the field you'll be amazed with the precision. I'll also say when i bought the scope i was looking forward to the illuminated sight for low light. However i found it works best in the day and off at night using the outer ring for targeting by letting your eye center on the target. Ill add some pic or my last trip with my mtac 1-4.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Clarity Picked this up on a trade, in new condition, for coyote hunting. The glass is wonderful! Very clear. The construction is very robust as well. For CQB, this is the ticket. And, for body hits at 300 is a breeze. Down side, the reticle is not for shooting MOA groups, but it's not designed for that. Also, the illumination flickers on number three because the it does not click in solid. It's has a positive click on the rest. Overall, for the money, this optic is above it's peers and I'm very pleased. I like the fact I can use it as a combat optic and hunt coyotes too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear and strong This is a full field scope I purchased for a Big and Dangerous Game, Heavy recoil Rifle, 1) the reticle is the type I like for accuracy at close and moderate distances 2) the 1.5 magnification is optimal for extra wide field of view and target acquisition in immediate need situations 3) The scope has good eye relief for the recoil of the 375 Ruger and Sturdy, 30 MM tube, good light gathering ability make this my choice for my big and dangerous game rifle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value I've been running the MTAC on my Sig 556 SWAT rifle for close to a year now. It's actually my second MTAC; the first one I bought had a very slightly canted reticle (that I didn't notice at the time of purchase). Burris service was simply outstanding; I was sent a replacement scope pronto. The higher reticle illumination settings work in even the brightest sunlight. I wish the lowest setting was actually a little *dimmer* - it tends to wash out my night vision a bit on really dark nights. But that's a minor gripe. I really love the true 1X magnification at the low end - shooting with both eyes open is completely natural, making it a snap to rain down a little bad news on the local hog population. :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great scope has me wanting a new one. I love the scope's quality. I specifically bought this scope because of the 42mm objective light gathering ability and low power setting (1.5times). Brought it to a Larry Vickers carbine class for a week and it worked great. I'd buy 2 or 3 more if they would offer a 42mm in 1.0 x 4 or 6 power...the 1.5 works up close but it requires specific training to use the 1.5 as a dot. 1.0 power on low with 42mm would be a real winner for low light....you don't get to pick the worst day of your life at that may not occur in broad daylight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around scope! Got this scope in July to put on my AR. It is perfect for what I need it for. I use it for varmint control at the farm and home defense. The glass is clear and I really like that the brightness settings on the Reticle have an off position between each one. 1 power is not quite a true 1 power but it works well with the illumination turned up as a CQ/CB red dot scope. The Reticle works well as I have busted coyotes out to 200 with no problems. Overall, this is a perfect all around AR scope at a really good price!

I own a Stag Arms model 15/w nonremoveable carry handle, I would like to mount an optic on top of the handle. My choice is MTAC 1-4x24mm or a red dot of some sorts. Can you suggest an optic and mount that might work? Have P rail for handle.

Asked by: backlash78
Hello! I recommend the AR carry handle picatinny adapter from Rock River Arms and a set of low Signature Zee Rings. Sounds like a cool setup!

I purchased the skulltac 1-4X24 with the reticle combo. I am completely happy with this set up. My question I wish to ask, do you offer flip lens covers for this scope? If so do you offer transparent flip lens covers? 1 1/4 front, 1 5/8 rear.

Asked by: jspot48
We do not make any like that, but I recommend Butler Creek. That scope would need sizes 02A and 16.

I'm looking for an optic for hog hunting with my .458 Socom. Is the ballistic reticle on this optic compatible with the .458 Socom round, or is it best suited for 5.56/.223? Also, can this optic withstand the high recoil of the .458 Socom?

Asked by: Bob Socom
Hello, The reticle will not match up with .458 as it is designed for 5.56. As for the recoil it will not be a problem. All Burris Optics are recoil rated to beyond .50BMG.
