Burris just sent me a Fullfield 30 European illum #4  to play with. So far I'm very impressed with the scope's features and optical quality. VERY positive clicks and a great illum set-up if it's reliable. At only 15oz it's one of the lightest illum choices available.
 
I have it mounted on a 6.8SPC AR and after several hundred rounds no issues. I just hope the illum is more reliable than the Eurodiamonds I have tried?????
 
Anxious to go hog hunting with it next week to ck it out under real hunting conditions Smile

Sounds good, I kept reading a lot of reports on Burris illuminated scopes having problems....now and then reports of bad magnification or fast focus...but it seems like if you get one that works 100% they are very good optical quality for the money and like you said very lightweight.    
 
I've read a few times that the Fullfield Euro 30's do seem to be brighter than the same spec'd Fullfield II's with regular one inch tube even though general knowledge here says 30mm tube is just for durability, extra adjustments, etc.  If you have good findings I think I'll put the Fullield TAC 30 3-9x40 with illuminated ballistic plex on my list, only $390.
 
Please compare it to some of the others you have done in your Low Light Test posts previously.

I hope it doesn't eat batteries at the rate my XTR does.  That is my only complaint right now with the illumination.  Even in the off position, it seems to drain the battery if it sits for a couple weeks.

I know we have talked about their ill ret switch problems we have both experienced

I haven't checked to see if his not working was just a dead (drained) battery
what size is the ill dot?

on his FF2 it was like 2MOA, not ideal for a rifle that will shoot 1/2" groups at 200 yards!

when I sent it in for the intermittant switch issues I had them change it out to a different reticle, they were both german #4s with a dot, though the latter was much smaller, probably 1MOA (haven't really checked)

Is the Burris clearer & brighter than the Weaver Classic Extreme.I want it because it's lighter but want to make sure the optics are like the WCE.

The only one I looked through was good enough for me when it comes to clarity and brightness but I doubt it's as good as Weaver Classic Extreme (which I have never looked through but read lots of opinions of owners comparing favorably against $500-$1000 scopes).  Seemed similar to a Nikon Buckmaster at the store, where as Burris Signature Select, Nikon Monarch, and Weaver Grand Slam/Classic Extreme are probably closer together.
 
If I got one it would be because of the size, LRS Ballistic Plex reticle, opticstalk gentleman reporting its very durable, and forever warranty with a company that probably won't be going away anytime soon.

I'll compare next week when I get back to the ranch where my other scopes are. Looks pretty darn good to me wihtout comparing..............
 
Has held zero with several hundred rds of 6.8 in an AR and the illum still works

FYI - It is also possible to have the Posi-Lock installed on these scopes. I have the FF Euro30 3-9X40 mounted on a lightweight 338WM and am concerned about recoil and just my general hard use. I sent Burris an email asking about the posi-lock since the scope has the port on the side and they told me just drop it off and they would install it for $40.00.

A year down the line does anyone have a review of the Burris Fullfield 30 Euro? Especially the non-illuminated model. Optically what scopes does it compare to/compete with?

New member here, also interested. At at this price, if it's the same scope, i'd definitely like to try it.  http://www.competitorss.com/Optics.
