I hope, Sawfish, but a friend just got a 2-7 Posiscrew back from Burris. They took out the posiscrew mechanism and put a plug in place. "Quality" work from a previously quality company.

I experienced the same thing with one I had and sold it.

All I use are Nikon Force XR's. My only complaints are that they're a little bulky on smaller revolvers and the eye relief changes noticeably when you adjust the power of the variable model, but other than that they're awesome, simply awesome scopes. I haven't yet knocked one off zero, no matter how heavy the gun kicks, and they even hold up well to me accidentally bumping them against things.

I have used the old Leupold M8 2X EER with satisfaction. Don't care much for the zoom scopes as eye relief, exit pupil and field of view can get so restricted. I may try the Weaver 2X28 on my next SBH. Might try the Wiegand no-drill mount, too.

I have had a couple of Burris scopes on revolvers (a 2-7x, and a 1.5-4x with posi loc). Both of these were still the made in the USA models, and had great glass IMO. The 2-7x failed almost immediately on a Ruger 45 colt hunter. reticle turned inside the tube. Burris fixed it and had no problems after that.

The 1.5-4x I experienced the same point of impact shifts with the posi-loc on my 454 casull M83 and four ring TSOB mount. It also broke the reticle once, and splattered a bunch of debris or grease on the inside of the lenses on a different occasion.

After all this I got rid of both, and went a different route for my revolvers. Luepold FXII 2x scopes, lighter, smaller, great glass, simplicity with no need to crank on a power dial. just aim and shoot with what ya got. I am liking them a lot so far. I would like to get a 10inch or longer 454 someday and would likely put a Luepold fixed 4x on it
