Scout Riflescope 2-7x32mm is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Addition to my Ruger Scout Rifle. I'm taking it to the deer woods for the 3rd season. I absolutely love this thing, took a little getting used to it being so far forward. Took my biggest buck the 1st year, it's a great combination. Worth the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good no nonsense scope. needed a scope for my Ruger Scout rifle, this fit my requirements perfectly.slim-light weight-clear and sharp.
Date published: 2015-06-25
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Is this fake? I can’t believe this is real Burris. This is my first Burris scope and at $400 retail, it is not as sharp as my cheap ncstar scope at around $40. The periphery meaning everything around the center is a little blurry, and I don’t know what you call it but if I am not exactly and I mean exactly looking dead on, black covers the field of view. Also, up is down when adjusting it? Did Burris really get it this wrong or did I get a cheap knockoff? I called customer service, no response, I left a message to be called back and they never did. I would avoid, and I’ll let you know if this changes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Water ingress I took this scope to Africa, specifically the mountains of Eastern Cape and whilst stalking in on some baboons in the pre dawn rain, lightning and cold this scopes seal decided to fail on me. You can keep your lifetime warranty I don’t want a repeat of that. Your scope found a home in the bin, and a Leupold found its home on my gun. What was I thinking, that should have been my first choice. Silly me for choosing you. Never again Burris

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed Purchased this scope recently, mounted it on top my Marlin 1895GBL with a WWG rail. Thing works like a dream and 2-7x is perfect for the effective range of the 45-70.
Date published: 2019-01-19
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.
Date published: 2016-05-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid scope This is a solid well built scope with perfect eye relief for the M1A Scout rifle. I’m a Leupold guy, but their VX Freedom 1.5x4 doesn’t have enough eye relief to use all the magnification. This Burris 2x7 does. I have it mounted on Warne low height QD rings and it’s about perfect with the factory stock for cheek weld. The adjustments are rock solid and repeatable. The glass is clear edge to edge and gives a great picture. This is the scope you want for the M1A Scout rifle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consistent Scope Starting at 25 yards to sight in, first group went in the same hole, same with the second group. Then at 100 yards shot a 1/2" and a 3/4" group - no problem. Great scope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does everything as advertised and does it well I have had this scope for a couple years now. It has worked perfectly and I have never had problems with it. I actually like it better then my Leopold. I recently let my cousin shoot my elk rifle and she dropped it directly on the scope bending the tube. I was very happy to find out it was covered by their forever warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear and Rugged I purchased one of these 6 months ago for a 45-70, and I liked it so much I had to buy another scout rifle just so i could outfit it with one of these scopes. Slim and lightweight yet solidly built and the excellent glass clarity that we’ve all come to expect from Burris. Next time I need a scope I’ll look to Burris hands down.
Date published: 2018-06-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just made it to the range for the first time. Scope is pretty good quality. The only complaint is that the bullet plex reticle is so thin I can't hardly make out the elevation marks. Eye relief is great and works well on my steyr scout.. Burris could thicken the reticle.

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 4 out of 5 by from Not Bad Scope is robust if not a little on the heavy side. Very clear edge to edge with great range of eye relief. Power ring is quite stiff and needs an extension lever built into it or an aftermarket clamp on lever. (It will be really tough to turn in a hurry at winter 3-gun matches. Not sure how water proof this scope is with a non sealed power ring.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great scope I bought this scope about three weeks ago and have not had the chance to use it yet as we have been out of town. However, it fits my gun very well, M1-A1, and the extended eye relief is extremely good. Very light and compact, just really like this scope. I look forward to experiencing it in action!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only one for SOCOM! The ONLY scope to get for M1A SOCOM! Get the Burris low extreme tactical mounts and you’re set. Great eye relief. Clear, and holds zero really well. Not to mention that it just makes the SOCOM just “pop”!!!

Ruger Gunsite Scout- Burris Scout Scope w/ forward mount.  I bought Burris Tacticle Rings 1””. I don’t have enough elevation in the scope to sight it in? Wrong Burris rings??

Asked by: Skippymnc23
Scout setups can be tricky with maxing out. I would recommend the Signature Zee Rings. Those will accept inserts to move the scope the direction you need to go to get sighted in. In the 1" variety they come with +/- 5 MOA inserts and 0 MOA inserts. If you need more than 5 or so inches, I would recommend also getting the insert kit which will have additional inserts. The part number for the insert kit is 626019.

What rings for Mossberg MVP Scout rifle recommended?

Asked by: craigs
For the variable power Scout scope, I suspect medium rings. But if you go with the 2.75 fixed power scout scope, I believe you could use low rings which I believe will be a better fit for cheek weld on the MVP Scout's stock. I run a Weaver V3 in low rings on my MVP Scout and it's an awesome fit. I've been looking at LER Scout scopes and the Burris 2.75 is the only one that has my attention.

I purchased the 2x7 scout scope online and haven’t purchased rings yet, what would you recommend to use for rings that would allow me to use my irons through the optic on my savage model 11 scout 

Asked by: ScoutHunter93
Unfortunately we do not make any purpose built see through rings. If you used High XTR rings you *could* have the potential to see through and use your iron sights, but the scope would be sitting relatively high on the rifle. In addition there is no way to ensure that the holes in the rings will align with your iron sights.
