Hi, I looked high ... I looked at Meade.. I looked at Celestion... They were about 30-60% more. And higher... at Pentax. at Redfield even Nikon about double$$ +++ in price. Alas I went low since these had the best reviews found for both birders, very amateur astronomers, and marksmen alike. They are clear and bright to 22 power ( they slowly deteriorate after 22). They focus well even if the field of view is small and getting smaller with magnification. They are easy to handle, for your hands to grip as the weight is not low but neither are they unbalanced or unwieldy. BUT if you have the money to spend and want the best or almost best these are not your lenses. But for the dollar they do what you need to get the job done. Mine is for stadiums to enable me to see what those in the front seats see. To watch nesting birds of prey. They'll work just fine.
I bought Redfield 2 last October. My Second Burris scope. Customer Service is always help when I have called. Great office staff and a stand up company. Time will tell on quality but for now all is good. Plan to buy another Scope, would not hesitate . I bought my second scope different model because the first was so good. I recommend Burris.
I have only one other scoped rifle and that has an old Redfield on it. I purchased the Burris Fullfield II mounted on a Tikka 3, 308 cal. rifle. I was having a little trouble at first getting my groups where I wanted. Turned out to be the shooter not the equipment. Now I have the scope where it needs to be and at 200 yds I am shooting 2.5 inch groups. This scope is well worth the money and will not be my last Burris purchase. For what it is worth I am 67 years of age.
I have made this model my standard for my different hunting rifles. The ballistiplex reticle works for me from .223 to 300 Win Mag. I had to change to a backup rifle with this Burris scope last season when the primary rifle's legacy Redfield (30 years old) shot loose. The primary rifle now wears a Burris 3 x 9.
