Re: Burris Eliminator III Scope Review
"With any electronic device attached to, or incorporated on, the firearm or scope; except scopes containing battery powered or tritium lighted reticles are allowed."
To me thats saying that the Burris Eliminator is illegal,
Illuminated reticles are fine, so an Acog or an Aimpoint or any other illuminated reticle would be legal in states that allow it.
However the Eliminator doesnt just have an illuminated reticle it has a laser rangefinder, and with the Eliminator III an angle indicator and a ballistic computer.
And technically the laser rangefinder is an artificial light source, its out of the visible spectrum for humans but it is still a light source attached to or incorporated on the rifle or scope.
Handheld rangefinders are legal to use, but If you strapped one to your rifle it would become illegal.
This is an interesting legal question, the laws are not clear on this because they were written before technology like this was available to hunters.
If you want to use the Eliminator for hunting and are unsure of the legality I would ask a Game Warden about it, and if you do get the "green light" to use it, I would ask for that in writing that way you can show it to any other Game Warden and avoid a Citation
