No comments on the burris, but for a .223 or 35 rem you'll be much happier with a 2-6, 2.5-7 or 2.5-8. The Simmons gold medal 2.5-7 was a rock solid handgun scope and if you can find one reasonably priced I wouldn't hesitate to get one.

I agree on the cheap scope comment, especially for handguns. Stick with scopes that have a reputation for holding up to the recoil, and pay what they cost.

I was pretty happy with my 1.5 x 4 Burris scopes. During one of the NAHHC hunts at the YO Ranch, I was hunting with Pat Beckett of Burris, and he asked me how I liked the 1.5 x 4 Burris. I told him that I liked it fine because of its wide field of view at low power. He was using a 2 x 7 and told me that it had the same field of view at low power as the 1.5 x 4, plus additional magnification in a more compact scope. I looked through his 2 x 7, and right then and there, made the 2 x 7 Burris my number one HG scope.

I never had a problem with any Burris handgun scope, I've owned both posi lock and non posi lock, but I agree the 2-7X is my choice, and I find the 2X setting is better in that last 10 minutes of legal light over the 1.5X in the 1-4X.

I have well over 1000 rounds of brutal 460 loads on the one I have on the Encore with zero failures over the past 8 years. Thats cheaper the tasco used to be, Buy it!
