[TFB GUNFEST] Burris Optics Presents Three New Red Dot Sights

Colorado-based Burris Optics turns a whopping 50 years old this year, having been founded in 1971. For many old-school hunters, scopes like those of Burris’ venerable Fullfield series often get mentioned in the same breath as icons of yesteryear such as Weaver and Redfield. From their half-century history, Burris lays claim to some industry firsts, including the first US-made scopes with multi-coated lenses, the first Scout-style scope, and the first variable-power handgun scope. While they still offer current versions of some of those classic optics types, they also produce some more modern offerings as well. At TFB and TFBTV’s GunFest 2021, Burris came to discuss three such pieces.

Burris announces new turret adjustment knobs

Burris Optics has announced some new products, in the form of turret adjustment knobs. This system is known as the Modular Adjustment Dial (M.A.D) System and is now currently for sale. Essentially it allows owners of select XTR II™ and Veracity® Burris scopes to purchase these knobs and replace the original factory ones they came with. Knobs in question are the outside adjustment knobs and not the internal adjustment ones, these stay on the scope. Styles and designs include Mil or MOA Marked Capped Knobs (low and tall options available), Mil or MOA Marked Exposed Knobs (low, single-turn and tall, multi-turn available), Custom-Lasered Capped Knobs, or Custom-Lasered Exposed Knobs. The Custom Knobs can be tailored to a particular caliber that a shooter wants, for that calibers trajectory. While the others can come in either Mil or Minute of Angle adjustments on the supplied M.A.D knobs. The capped knobs are made so that the inner adjustments can be made, but a cap is screwed over the entire turret, thus protecting it from any bang that might happen while hunting. However, the company realized that alot of its customers who were into hunting, were also into long range shooting, where you need to be able to adjust the turrets for different ranges to be effective. However when they return to hunting, they can screw the protective caps back on, and the scope adjustments will be protected from any problems while in the field.
