    I have a Burris Black Diamond scope I would like to trade. I am open to pretty much anything but need a different scope. I would like one that either has a turret or one that can be installed like a Leupold VX-3. This Burris is the 4-16x50 with the 30mm tube with the side paralax/focus with mil-dot reticle. I am including the standard Leupold rings with the scope. I would really like the scope to have a side focus but that is not 100% necessary. I would also trade for rifle of some sort. Let me know what you have and we'll see if we can make a deal. Thanks.

    Huckjare, If you like the scope why don't you send it back to Burris and have it retro fitted with target knobs(80.00). Then have Kenton industries custom make a ballistic turrent for it. (109.00)

    Burris doesn't put those turrets on the 4-16 power. I've been emailing them for a week now and finally got a response. I love the glass but really want a turret.

    My brother just had that scope done. Burris will retro fit the scope with target knobs. Kenton will take it from there. If you want to talk to him his scope is still at Burris. let me know.

    PM sent. They can't do it on the 4-16. The others they can.

    I talked to a customer service rep less than a month ago that told me they would do it on my 4-16 Black Diamond and turn around time would be around 6 weeks. They can't put the XTR turrets on it, instead they install the Tac-2 turrets. Maybe that was your confusion?

    The rep said that they don't have the bearings anymore and they will not be getting any more in to do the conversion.

    That's good to know. Doesn't make any sense to me as to why they wouldn't use the same bearings for all the conversions. hahaha

    My thoughts exactly. I even asked the guy if he had any spare parts just laying around by chance. He said no. So if someone needs an awesome mil dot scope this is it. The Black Diamond scopes have excellent clarity, especially with the side paralax adjustment.
