I found a good deal on a silver finished Burris Posi-loc 1.5-4 handgun scope. My research indicates this scope hasn't been made for quite a while and the opinions run the gamut from "works great" to "they're crap!". I found an old thread from our friend James from Jersey asking about one of these years ago, but I didn't see an update. Does anyone have any info they can share on this model? I could likely get this one for around $65 and it would be used on a .223 or .35 Rem (someday 358 JDJ!) barreled Contender. Thanks everyone!

John, I had the same silver Burris 1.5-4X and took it to the range mounted on a 44 and found the crosshair had broke in the center. Sent it back to Burris who repaired it free of charge and it worked fine.. I eventually sold it to buy a Leupold 2.5-8... Best of luck....

I HAD CROSSHAIRS FAIL IN POSILOCKS I HAD ON HEAVY KICKING REVOLVERS, I WOULD NOT TRUST THEM ON HEAVY KICKERS.

I appreciate the input guys. This scope is used and has been through a few people, but all claim to not have actually used it. I'm a bit suspicious and don't want a "project" scope, even at a good price. I'll likely pass at this point. Take care gents!

Buy it, if it is at a good price. If it has problems, return to Burris under their lifetime warranty. They will either repair or replace. Never had a problem with Posi-Lock scopes.

PS: I have this same scope on my Raging Bulls in 454 Casull and 480 Ruger with no problems.

"Cheap" scopes are too expensive. Buy a 2X or 4X Leupold or a 2-6X Bushnell.

A 4X is better for small game than a 2X, you have much better target definition. I own some Burris scopes, but would never buy a Posi-lock.

At $65 buy it. If anything is wrong with it send it back. I have been impressed with the newer scopes it will probably be replaced with if it does have a problem.

AT $65 IT IS TEMPTING BUT DOWNTIME ON A SCOPE, SHIPPING 'EM, etc. HAS ITS HIDDEN COSTS, PLUS WITH MURPHY'S LAW IT WILL BREAK WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT/NEED IT THE MOST.
