Burris XTRii 1-8 scope

Recommended Posts

Anyone here have one and if so how do you like it?

I just ordered one with the ballistic dot reticle (similar to vortex razor with the JM-1 reticle). I hope I made the right choice.

Not out yet.

I have the 1.5 to 8 and I love it....it is my test mule for ammo and gun reviews.

Just looked at optics planet still not in stock. I've been waiting for months. It changes a little now and then but has said 14-21 days or something similar for many months now.

Wow...They just keep pushing the release date back. I think if i had the extra money I would just go buy the Primary Arms 1-8 and not wait :blush:

I have a 1.5-8 as well. My only complaint is the weight. It adds almost 2 pounds to the rifle.

the Burris rep didn't believe me when I told him the 1.5 x 8 was 2 lbs. he had to fact check his own product? to clarify my quote on there earlier statement. I told him I needed the scope for a match in Oct. his quote was " they will be here before then, I don't have a shipping date yet"

Yeah, after running around with it on my jp-15 for a few matches, I'm looking for something a little lighter. My buddies new MTAC is only 14oz, and the reticle is decent.

If you're not real picky with glass quality the new primary arms 1-8 ($379) is 16 ounces

Isn't 65' FOV very narrow for a 1x scope?

I seem to recall most 1x scopes in the 80 - 100' range ... ???

Yes. The specs they have listed in the description are for the 1.5-8 not the 1-8

Look at the Leupold VX-6. Great glass and very light weight

I saw these listed for $800+ somewhere else.

Looks like the link I provided while listed as a 1x8...the product number shows to be the 1.5x8

Other then Bruce Piatt I don't think any are outside of the factory.

I order one of these thinking middle of sept wait would not kill me. The company I ordered thru was told by Burris that the 1-8 would not be available till November now.

God I hate when companies do this.

I called Burris yesterday and spoke to a manager. The 1st 200 are due to be shipped from Japan on 08/29. The second 200 are due to be shipped from Japan in November. If you are in the 1st batch you might see them by the end of September.

Good luck
