3-9x is the absolute classic size for American hunters in all sorts of terrain and burris forex e1 3 9×40 compact scope. Burris offers two 3-9x40mm scopes in the Fullfield E1 family, one features an illuminated reticle, one is non-illuminated. The illuminated model features 10 brightness settings.
This state-of-the-art reticle has cascading windage and elevation dots, so you can execute long-range shots out to 500 yards in still or windy conditions. The riflescope is resistant to a lifetime of field use, heavy recoil, and harsh vibration. Available On: 2-7×35, 3-9×40, 3-9×50, 4. After reading reviews and seeing the E-1 at a local Sportting Goods dealer, I picked one for placement on my CZ FS 550 in 93 x 62.
I wanted an optic that provided large field of view for better pick up of game, sufficient variable power to assist my eyes for shot placement, yet compact enough to be in balance with the carbine length CZ. I have owned a Burris Fullfield E1 scope for a couple of years. I have used that scope on a couple of guns and absolutely love it. The 3-9×40 has been on my muzzleloader and on my 30-06. The scope is always clear and is built like a tank.
I opted for the regular plex reticle, as my guns shoot pretty flat for the distances I hunt. This scope is a entry level scope that packs serious clarity and low light capability. I used it for 2 years in all conditions. Up in the fog it tends to lag behind some of the higher end scopes for moisture resistance. Then again that can easily be fixed by a hydrophobic coating.
The one true gripe I have is the reticle is a little thin. In low light and in the timber its really hard to locate. If It was similar to the veracity I would be much happier. Here is a photo of the scope mounted on a 6mm Ackely Improved. A worthy addition to Burris mounting hardware would be extension Signature Ring-mounts for Ruger M77 actions.
