I have the DE Mk VII 44 mag and a 14 inch barrel. I intend to hunt with this, I have hunted before using it but with a 6 inch barrel.
My 6" barrel has a Leupold 2x, with it I can consistently ring a 4 inch plate at 100 yards.

I expect to have increased accuracy and reach with the 14 inch barrel. I haven't been able to take it out yet, and I'm looking for a good scope to put on it.

I've narrowed my search to the Burris 200309 Handgun scope. I really like the looks of it and it seems to have all the goodies I'm looking for.

This site and others are telling me that scope is back ordered. Any other suggestions?

Thanks!

I am looking at either the Burris 200299 or the Nikon 6567.

The Burris seems better from the specs alone, but is there any personal preference here?

Burris 2-7x32mm Posi-Lock Handgun Scope - Ballistic Plex Reticle, Matte Black Finish

(guess I'll buy this one)

The Burris 2x7 is a great scope to 4 power. After that the eye relief is useless. I'm considering going to the leupold  but the field of view is not that great. These two scopes are your best choices. Have you considered the 1.5 X 4 Burris?

Well I wouldn't expect to use it on high power unless I've got some support.
I guess I like the idea of having the higher power in case I need it, but would leave it at 2-4 for most use.
It seems to be a highly regarded scope, I was going to buy the 3-12x but it wasn't in stock at the few places where I shopped.

I got the Burris 2x7 Posi Ball-Plex.
It's a beauty, I have it on the gun but haven't got out to use it yet.
Weather is getting better, but there's gardening & all kinds of other things that have to be started at the start of spring.
Plus I'm waiting to receive a set of rings for my Winchester Mod 94 so I can get that sighted in too.

Soon, very Soon.

So how did it work out for you. I have used the 2-7 on my VII with great success.
