Scout Riflescope 2-7x32mm

The Scout 2-7x32mm riflescope is designed for scout rifles, whose concept was developed by the legendary Col. Jeff Cooper.

The slim optic provides low to medium magnification. It allows for placement well forward on the rifle, so you can get—and keep—both eyes on field targets while sitting or moving at full speed.

Scout Riflescope 2-7x32mm is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slightly Disapointed Buying the optic was easy. Click, cart, checkout, pay and wait. I waited 10 days and got the optic. I opened the box and it was as featured. I took the optic out of the box and had it mounted. Brought the weapon home, looked through it and saw multiple black particles inside the optic that wasn't dirt on the outside. I called, arranged a return and waited 10 more days. I just got the optic back and it has one black particle remaining inside the optic. Really???? QC at that point should have been amazing since it was a return. Right??

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Scope This was a Christmas present to my self. Mounted it on an M1A using Sprindfield Armory's forward scout mount. It zeroed fast. After chronographing my load and using Strelok Ballistic Software, I was able to use the stick on reticle cards that Burris included with the scope. I'm good out to 600 yards. Good hits every time, and it's fast handling. Very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Burris 2x7x32mm Scout I've had the Burris 2.75 Scout scope on my Marlin 450. It was good but I wanted more magnification. Burris had the answer with this new edition to there Scout scope line. It's just what I was looking The versitility in magnification and in a Scout scope sells itself. I love it. Thanks Burris.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and intuitive to use. I've had this scope for about a month now and what a delight. It mounted I'd minutes. Bore sighting was simple and then sighting in proved just to be an excuse to get out and use it. The sight picture at all magnifications was clear and bright. There was no distortion around the periphery and the retical was distinct from the subject. Magnification adjustment was smooth and simple to operate with a thumb. All in all a great addition to my Scout rifle. I would purchase another Burris scope in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 Years and Still Ticking I have had this mounted to my rifle for 3 years now and it has preformed flawlessly. It was very easy to zero, about 7 shots and have not had to touch the sights despite being mounted on my truck gun. It has taken 4 Whitetail on various power settings and at different times of the day. Around sunrise it helps distinguish buck from doe and in the Evening it brings the same clarity to the shooting conditions. This scope is light weight, compact and does not get hung up on other equipment when I am scouting new hunting areas. The graduated aiming points help with long range shooting, but wait there's more. Burris gives you ballistic charts you can use as cheat sheets in the field. In summation, I would recommend this scope to anyone who has or wants a scout rifle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great optic! Mounted on my hunting rifle, custom M91-59 in 7.62x54R. It takes the recoil and holds zero, mounted in leupold QWR low rings. My only suggestion is making the 2.75x20 available with illuminated reticule. No complaints though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific scope I mounted this scope on my M1-A scout with an Ultimak rail using XTR low rings. It hugged the rifle so closely I had to remove the front and rear sights. Just 9 clicks down in elevation was all it took to zero using match grade ammo. Well, a picture is worth a thousand words. This rifle and scope combo shoot like a laser. Looking forward to filling my tag this fall.

Is Burris planning on making an illuminated reticle option for this (or any other) Scout scope?  We (the Scout rifle community) need one, as there isn't that option with any rifle scope that has an eye relief of 9+”.

I am considering this scope for my Ruger 10/22 Takedown Tactical and would like to know if this is a compatible match. The long eye relief has me puzzled. I deer hunted for years with a Burris 32mm and dearly loved it.

Asked by: Kieley
The scout would not be a good option as the eye relief is too long. I would do a Droptine or Fullfield series.

Mounted this scope forward on M1A SOCOM 16. Went to Cabelas and asked to boresight it to 25 yards to shoot at NRA indoor range. Was getting groups 12 in. above bullseye at 25yds. Adjusted elevation all the way but not much improvement. Thoughts?

Asked by: jhyphen
This is VERY common on Scout rifles, more so on M1A/SOCOM rifles. To correct the misalignment, we recommend the Signature Zee Rings in Medium with the offset insert kit. That will allow you to use the posi-align inserts to physically move your scope in the direction it needs to go to get sighted in.

can anyone tell me which size butler creek flip open covers will work on this scope? thanks!

Asked by: Chris B
Not exactly correct. Size 9 will fit the eye but size 11 is rectangular shaped and will not fit 2-7 x 32. Size 13 is correct for objective .

Can you recommend mounting rings for M1A Scout?

Asked by: GarfieldOTC
You could use Low Zee Rings 420083 or Medium Signature Zee Rings 420521. Also, you could use Low XTR Rings item 420180.

Hello. My burris scout scope needs 13.5 inch of eye relief and I can not move it forward enough to get a proper eye relief. In specs it said 9 to 12 which would have been perfect, because my max is at 11. Is there something wrong with mine?

Asked by: Slavic
Hello, It sounds like this can be fixed by mounting. Hello, for troubleshooting or parts please visit our support portal.
