Weaver 1.5-4X20 or 2.5-8X28


Burris 2X20

This is going on a non-recoiling pcp pistol. 

I need over 21" of eye relief, more the better. 

The fixed power Burris is as much or near that of the variable power Weavers, is the Burris worth the $$$? The extra power of the Weavers would be used little if at all but if the Burris is over priced I would go with the better value Weaver. I want the scope with the highest quality glass and internal adjustments.

I don't think the Burris is overpriced.  Weaver would/should suit your needs, but at 4x the eye relief is way below what you are saying you need.  If you don't want or need variable power, don't get it.

Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.

There are some who do not fear death... for they are more afraid of not really living

I have used a number of cheaper 2X pistol scopes and the Swift and Nikon 2X's on 22 pistols and a couple air pistols, and if I had to pick one overall it'd be the Nikon as the optics are good quality and it comes with a low profile target turret, that's rated at 120 MOA total travel. Never used the Burris nor Weaver though.
