XTR II Close Range Scopes

The need for extreme precision grows exponentially with distance

The Burris XTR II™ is our top of the line tactical scope family.  XTR II scopes are available in sizes from 1-5x to 8-40x.

The short range XTR II scopes are designed for intense competitive use and profressional tactical situations. Because it comes down to a matter of inches when a door blows open and you’ve got less than a second to clear a room. This is no time for chance. It’s time to put absolute confidence in yourself and the crystal clear, low-magnification performance of your scope to get you out of harm’s way.

MAD Knobs System

Some XTR II close range scopes are available with the Burris MAD Knob system: you can swap out turret caps for tactical, short capped, or mixed. Whatever works for you.

Big Features, Small Magnification

Short zoom doesn't mean shorting the features. 11 steps of magnification. Front, rear or dual focal plane options, 34mm tubes, big, easy-grip zoom ring...the features keep going

Goes to Eleven

XTR II's feature an 11 step illumination, to match every conceivable situation. With an OFF position in between each level - you don't need to go past levels you don't want to get where you need to be.

Focal Choices

The short range XTR II scopes are available in front, rear, or even dual focal planes. Burris wanted to make a scope that matches your style exactly.

  • High-grade optical glass provides excellent brightness and clarity with lasting durability

  • Nitrogen-filled body tubes prevent internal fogging in the cold and rain
  • Precision-gauged and hand-fitted internal assemblies maintain a consistent point of impact through the magnification range, regardless of shock and vibration
