Anyone checked this red dot sight out, I am looking for some feedback as I like the looks and I like Burris scopes, great quality. It can be had for around $200-$230
Any info would be great,

Thanks Steve .

Got one, luv it! The side mounted brightness adjustment knob is handier than the Aimpoint.

Agreed. It's supposed to be an upgraded SPOT w/better glass, sealant & shockproofing.

Can anyone tell me the diference between the Burris XTS-135 and the Tasco ProPoint PDTS132? The pictures they look like the same unit, but the Tasco is about $100 cheaper.

The Burris is probably the nicest and most sturdy of the Aimpoint clones I have seen. Considering it only costs a little more than other clones and being that it is still much cheaper than the actual Aimpoint, it would be a good option for someone wanting a quality red dot tube sight at a good value.

I've exchanged messages with a gun magazine writer who has used one for some time. He thinks very highly of the Burris and says it's a good value.

I've had one for 13 months now and love it. I bought it a year ago last November for around $170. Best $170 I've ever spent on a scope. Well worth the money.

I bought one the first week they came out. I didn't wait for any reviews because I have always had good experiences with Burris.

This is a great red-dot sight.....my dog likes it too

Some of us think that all of these (SPOT, Burris, Tasco) that come out of the same factory are probably the same scope.
The SPOT did really well in one Arfcommer's torture test.

I got a Burris just after they came out.
It was well made, but mine had a bad dot.

I ended up getting the Tasco.
Seems like the same sight to me.
I'm very pleased with it.
(I haven't dragged it behind my Humvee yet. I'm having the windows tinted. )

I don't think you can go wrong with any of the 3 sights mentioned.

By the time you get the Burris and the mount, you're really close to the price of a Eotech or Aimpoint.
Especially if you looked for used ones.

Some of us think that all of these (SPOT, Burris, Tasco) that come out of the same factory are probably the same scope. In one thread was mentioned that although the SPOT and Burris were made at the same site, the Burris had better parts installed. A later thread confirmed that the Tasco was made there as well.

You will still need a mount if you buy an Aimpoint or Eotech. As stated before, keep a eye open for any of these on EE (though I seem to keep missing deals).

I have an Aimpoint, but the side mounted knob of the SPOT/Burris/Tasco is more convenient.

Sight choice really depends on intended usage. My nephew in the sandbox prefers Eotechs to any other optic/sight.

Any updates on the BURRIS quality? I have the XTS-235 on order. I really like the extra recticles, and the 2X feature. Burris says they will not ship out until closer to May, though. At least it is paid for.

My Burris XTS 135 Should have been hear last Friday. Burris said 2 weeks.
