Burris Tactical Kit – Great Scopes, Not a Lot of Money – SHOT Show

Burris had a couple of new products and a cool new bundle at SHOT this year.  We stopped by their both to get the run down from Mike. Be sure to watch the video.

The new Burris Tactical kit is cool.  A lot of tactical shooters like having two optics (one with magnification and one without) on their rifles.  A number of people have been taking a Burris Fastfire and mounting it on top of the AR-332 or 536 to get the best of both worlds.  Burris is now selling these, along with a few other goodies, in one box.  This will sell for $100-150 cheaper than buying the parts individually.  It also comes in a nice case that could be used for other items. The MSRP is $599 for the 3x and $659 for the 5x.

The other big news from Burris is an update to their hunting scopes.  They are moving the parallax adjustment from the end to the side.  This will make it easier to adjust, especially on the longer scopes.

We’ve been running a lot of Burris scopes this year and have been really pleased with what we’re finding. The brand is positioning itself well. They’ve upped their game, but not their prices.


New reticles that will be available in a few months.

Slap it on your AR and you are ready to go!  Well remove the lens caps and zero it first.

    My 332 has a (very slightly) canted reticle. If this scope was for long range target work, that would be bad. However, as a tactical carbine scope the 332 works great.

    Will it come with a canted reticle like Burris is famous for? If the mount is part of the scope it WILL be canted. Haven’t seen one yet that isn’t. If you don’t bvelieve me GOOGLE it.

      I have two Burris AR scopes,and both are straight. I love the way some people can say” if one is bad they all are bad”. Get a life and get out of your momma’ basement.

      I’ve owned 5, still have 3, and haven’t seen a canted reticle yet.
      And BTW, many canted reticles are in fact due to poor mounting.
      Having mounted many scopes commercially, I discount canted reticle claims until I can mount the scope in a vise and level it, and then view it on a grid that has been leveled.
      I’ve seen many claims for canted reticles disproved.
      Not saying it doesn’t happen, but a lot of DIYer’s don’t properly mount scopes.
      And one more thing, Since when has Google become the end all, be all of knowledge?
