I hear a lot of things about them that aren't good, but i also hear a bunch of good things about them.  My friend is looking at a Black Diamond and i told him i'd get some info on it. so if you have any opinion on them good, or bad i would like to hear it, thanks

Most people say that is is one of the best scopes Burris makes. I had one for a while and the Optic clarity very close to my Kakles. The problem is that the odds are higher of getting a bad scope that slips out the door than some of the other brands in the same price range. The good Black Diamonds, which is most, are very good and clear.

Burris makes decent scopes, while not my favorite, they are dependable, servicable scopes and offer decent optics for the money.

I have a 4-16 Black Diamond.  I love that scope.  In fact I was out for half the afternoon and early evening comparing scopes ( Black Diamond, XTR, and Swaro Z6).  Obviously, the Swaro won in the end, but I am amazed at how well the Black Diamond did against it.

The Black Diamonds are a nice rugged scope.  They are heavy, but I have never had it lose its zero from shocks and bumps.  It has plenty of adjustment ( I can go from 100 to 1000 yards without having a MOA base).  Good scope all around in my opinion.

Burris is hit or miss.Many are made in factories in Asia.The Burris Fullfield II's are sold at many large sporting good stores.Clarity is below the Nikon Buckmaster.

I used to have the 8-32x50 Black Diamond.   It was a good dependable scope with plenty of elevation adj. and decent optics.  I think you could pound fence posts with the thing.  Burris scopes are heavy with thick tube walls compared to some other brands.  I've toured the facility and it was impressive how they machined the scope bodies.  I got rid of mine because I wanted a different reticle and I replaced it with a VX III Long Range.

I have a Signature Select and I'd rate it is a bit sharper than a similar Nikon Monarch. The Signature Select and above are made in the USA, while the low priced Fullfield II is made in the Philippines. The warranty is lifetime and transferable.

The only downsides are the minimal windage and elevation adjustment due to the large size of the internal lenses, and they aren't rear scope cover friendly.
