Does anyone know if the Burris 4x20 timberline or Shortmag will fit in a m77SA with using an offset ring?
 
BTW if anyone is curious.. the 4x32 sightron requires an extension ring.

............................Which Model M77 short action and caliber do you have? I also have one.........Unfortunately, many scope makers don`t disclose their tube mounting lengths.

..........................Go to the new Burris website,,,,burrisoptics.com,,,,,then go to "scopes" and then to "specifications." The 4x20 Timberline has a mounting tube length of 4.7" while the other short mag scopes had no less than 4.6"......It appears that  the 4x20 Timberline has a very small objective bell which would take away some mounting length............

I wonder where they come up with the geniuses to design a scope tube.....especially Burris.  I bet Burris cost themselves MILLIONS of scope sales over the last twenty five years because of SCOPE TUBE SHAPE DYSLEXIA!!!!     Loco

SadNo doubt, Burris has made some of the ugliest scopes I have ever seen. Too bad because I have found them to be very good optically and mechanically.

I do find a few of the model lines ugly, but some of them I really like.  I too find them good optically and mechanically.  They do tend to be a little heavy, but I don't really mind.  But I am a Burris fan.
