Scout Riflescope 2.75x20mm is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect scope for a scout rifle! I bought this for a Marlin 1895 SBL in 45-70. Needed a scope that could handle hard recoil. It has excellent eye relief, I can shoot both eyes open. It’s my 3rd Burris. They aren’t as well known to some, but check them out. Note: would like scope covers
Date published: 2018-12-03
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Scope Just what I needed for my M1A/M14 Scout! Was easy to mount on rail system and looks great
Date published: 2015-12-21
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 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 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.

I own and run a hog dog hunting kennel,and when hunting hogs I found that a great scope is worth as much as a good hog dog.

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 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 Great scope I bought this scope for my Marlin guide gun. It is a perfect match. Rugged and clear optics. You won't be sorry.
Date published: 2015-12-14
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.
Date published: 2019-11-25
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 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 4 out of 5 by from Love the scope After buying an AR-332 scope I went to the burris website to register the warranty. The warranty section of the website did not have the same type of scope I bought. Other than that I love my new scope.

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.

I have a 2-7 x 32 Scout Scope mounted on a 308 Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle. Can you recommend a throw lever for the power ring of the scope? It would increase the speed of changing the zoom, and make an already handy combination handier. Thanks.

I would check out the guys at 3 Gun Stuff, or Switchview for a throw lever for the Scout.

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.

I have a 2-7 Scout Scope and it seems to be out of focus. Read the portion of the manual that says to turn the "eye piece focusing ring" until the crosshairs are in focus. I'm assuming the focusing ring is just forward of the ocular bell?

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.

I'm thinking about mounting a scout scope on a .22 LR rifle. What distance is the parallax set for the 2.75x20 fixed power scout scope? Is it possible to send a scout scope back to the factory to get the parallax set to around 50 yards for an extra fee?

The scout scope is fixed at 100. On scout scopes, we are not able to change the parallax setting unfortunately.
Answered by: Burris Support

The specs list the eye relief as a range of 8.5-14". As this is a fixed power scope shouldn't the eye relief also be fixed? So which is it 8.5" or 14"?

I have not personally tried it, but you might be able to use the XTR rings in high or extra high as they have a cut out for weight reduction that might allow you to see your iron sights.
