I was offered a Burris Fullfield 3-9 in a trade. I have not heard back yet if it is a I or II. I would probably use it on a 700 in 7mm mag. What does the II have that the series I does not?

The II has a centered saddle for easier mounting.  The Fullfield II has the magnification ring on the eyepiece.  The optics are improved on the II.  The Fullfield I was made in the U.S.A.  The II's started out in U.S.A. but moved overseas about 3 years ago.

If it is one of the models that was still made in the US, get it.  They tend to be better optically than the ones that are made overseas.  They are a nice scope.  Do you know what reticle is?

Fullfield II made in the US is, I think, a bit better optically than the Phillipine-made ones.

Fullfield I is a little worse though.

Thanks for the comments. I declined the offer. The trade would have been fair for a series II but he had a series 1.

  In defense of the FI(at least one!),I sold a 1.75-5x20 FI to a friend yrs back.  I had it on my .300 for 5yrs and he still has it on a .444 Marlin.  It's still gettin it done!

I'm sure the series one is a good scope, it just wasn't an even trade and I was selling for funds, and also had a cash offer from someone else.
