Anyone have this scope? I'm looking for something economical and tough to put on top a working guide's DGR. its a CZ 550 416 rigby. It looks about right and is much cheaper than the leupolds which look nice, but are a little top expensive for my budget.

 

Thanks in advance for any advice.

 

ps i have 2 fullfield II 3X9X40 which seem really good scopes for the price.

 

cheers, tm

I have a Pentax 2-5x scope, which is pretty much the same thing. Not sure if they have changed eye relief on the Burris, but if it is listed as the 3.1-3.8 like the Pentax ( you know the Pentax are made by Burris), then you will have some problems in my opinion on the 416.

 

I have mine on a 35 Whelen, and if I don't pay attention I have gotten hit with the scope a few times, should be more pronounced on a 416.

 

I believe the bigger guns are where Leupolds REALLY shine. Much lighter in weight so they can take the recoil, and MUCH better eye relief.

 

You can get some Leupolds that are about the same price to work. On my 416 Taylor I have a 2.5x Leupold mounted. I also have a 1-4x Leupold that I have used on several occasions on the 416. Both have MUCH more eye relief then the above mentioned scope.

 

I DO LIKE the 2-5x scope, but I wouldn't have it on anything more powerful then my Whelen, and I am tempted to stick it on an '06.

 

Good luck.

ah well it looks like i'm back to the darn leupolds. the only thing about them is they are so expensive........ double what the burris cost and most times i can't see the difference in the heavy bush..... also it looks like the single steel spring that the leupold has isn't as secure as the double that the burris has.

 

again i would like more advice from any other, cos really i haven't used these smaller power scopes alot. for larger calibers we've been shooting irons mostly.

 

thank you for the advice.

 

ps yes the website say 3.1-3.8 eye relief. cheers, guy

Consider Burris Signature Safari scopes.  They have a reputation for being very tough and eye relief is comparable to Leupolds, I think,

I have a Signature Safari 1.75-5 and really like it.  It has long eye relief.  I would go with that or the Leupold 1.5-5 VXIII.  The VXIII is built a little better and is sharper but you'll get a little better low light performance with the Burris.  Good Luck.
