Hi,
 
What are the differences between the discontinued Burris Short Mag 2-7x26 and the Burris 2-7x26 Timberline?
 
Is one significantly better than the other?
 
Anyone know the parallax settings on these scopes?
 
Thanks.

I believe the short mag is slightly better optically speaking. I'm sure there are some other differences too, just unsure what those are. I don't remember when Burris quit making this scope, or if they did quit making them. But based on the price differences for suggested retail, there are differences.

Thanks cyborg,
 
I get the same feeling you have..., that Burris may have lowered the quality some but I can't find any comparatie specs to verify this.
 
Does anyone know specific differences?
