FINALLY!! Burris has listened!

Not sure if everyone has seen these yet. Burris is trying to take a crack at the tactical area of optics with a possible winner! A lot of the features of the Vortex Razor at what appears to be a lower cost (according to google). I'm a huge Burris fan so these have me really excited.

I think the 3-15 will sell like crazy for them if they are priced right. I'll be interested to see how their zero stop works.

The Veracity series of scope look like a real winner for the hunting crowd too.

I just wish someone would make a scope with all the feature sets of this or a nightforce and about half the weight. That burris 3-15x50 weighs 30 oz., too heavy for me to hunt with. Other than that it looks great.

Glad to see the lineup getting a facelift. Those are neat, and heavy any idea on a timeline when these will actually be on the shelf?

Re: FINALLY!! Burris has listened!

Yea, I know, I'm just wishing out loud. Several companies are making great tough scopes with all the features I want and good glass, but nobody seems to be able do that and keep the weight at a reasonable level. The first company that can do that will own the marketplace. Nightforce could put every hunting scope maker out of business if they could shave 12 oz. off of every scope in their lineup.

Chasing Unicorns I know, but maybe one day it'll happen. I also like DD's with a 22" waist and 34" hips but I know that reality is that DD's are more likely to be paired with a 36" waist and 44" hips.

Good lord...30 oz. Those things must be built like tanks. Good looking scopes though.
