Are the older Burris Signature scopes optically comparable to the newer Signature Selects? I know that the new ones have a more centered adjustment turret and more user friendly power knobs etc... but are the lenses any brighter or clearer to a great degree? Im sure they may be slightly better optically but is it worth the extra dollars over the older signatures that can be had off the SAMPLE LIST? Also, did they change the turret location because it caused problems for people when mounting and didnt allow proper eye relief adjustment for some people due to small mounting area at the front of the scope?
    Are Burris Signatures just as bright and clear as say a Nikon Monarch or 4200 Elite? Are the adjustments very precise and repeatable?

From my understanding, the new Sig. Selects have the same high quality lenses as the Signatures, moving the turrets back was an improvement, no doubt due to the fact you won't need to buy ext front bases and or rings. I've only looked through one Sig Select, and it wasn't an extensive viewing, but I've always found Signatures to be as good if not better than other high quality scopes, to include Swarofski, Zeiss, Nikon, leupold,  4200 Bushys, and Weaver GS,  which was due in part to extensive comparing against the aforementioned scopes. The Sigs were always brighter than the others due to larger internal lenses, this tested after sunset. As far as being precise and repeatable, yes, no problems, in that area. Oh, I've not noticed a big price increase as you've mentioned. 6x-24x Sig. Select has gone up $13 from the Signature I bought 3 yrs. ago.

Which model Burris are you interested in, Dave?  IB
