Burris Optics was formed in 1971 by founder Don Burris after he served a number of years with the Redfield Optics company. Redfield had their optics produced overseas, and Don Burris felt that a better, higher quality, rifle scope could be produced in America at a good price.

In 1980, Burris became the first U.S. based optics company to offer a multi-coated lens. Prior to 1980, multi-coated lenses were only available on expensive European rifle scopes.

At the time of this writing, Burris Optics was one of a select few optic companies that produced most all of their scopes entirely in the U.S. Some of their more economical models (such as the Fullfield II) has lenses that are produced in the Phillipines, but the scopes themselves are constructed in the U.S.

Burris offers a number of excellent optical products including rifle scopes, pistol scopes, spotting scopes, and binoculars. The Burris scopes line offers a number of popular models including:

  • Fullfield II (their most popular model)
  • Fullfield E1
  • Droptine series
  • Predator Quest
  • Timberline

Burris scopes aren’t a budget scope brand, but they are worth every penny when you are trying to take that trophy Mule deer at 400 yards in low light.

Burris has a number of really high quality scope lines that have been discontinued such as the Black Diamond series and Signature Select series. You can still find some of these older high quality series available on the used market, and the glass quality is right up there with some of the high end German and European scope brands.
