    2x7 Fullfield II vs. Timberline on guide gun

    Help me decide. I can get both scopes for the same price. The scope will be going on a guide gun that I have been using a williams peep sight on for the last few years. I want to use a one piece leupold base with the standard rings. If I go with the timberline I have to use a set of the extention rings since the scope is so short. The ring spacing on the one piece base is just too far apart. If I use the Fullfield II I don't have to use the extention rings. I really don't want to use weaver style rings and bases, nothing against them. I want to use what has served me well in the past.

    The Timberline is
    shorter - 9.5in. vs. 11.4in.
    lighter - 11oz vs. 12oz
    smaller diameter -26mm vs. 35mm
    more eye relief - 5/3.75in vs. 3.8/3.1in

    The Fullfield has
    wider view 45/13@100 yards vs. 31/12@100 yards

    Don't know about which is more clear or durable, both have a lifetime warranty.

    I have only had one burris scope before but it is a larger 4.5x14 Fullfield II on a 300 win mag. Has anyone held the two of these scopes together before. I am very happy with the one Fullfield II I have and am leaning towards it over the timberline just from liking the one I have. The timberline seems more practical for carry though because of its size. I don't shoot much paper with this gun. It is used regularly as a hog/deer rifle in texas brush.

    Let me hear it, they are the same price to me.

    Mike,
    I can't say on the Timberline scopes. However I do own several Burris scopes and they are fine. Their FFII 3-9X40 is as good as any on the market save really high dollar models. I have only one of the 2-7 FFII's and it is aa good clear scope. I use it on my 1895 GS and the ballistiplex falls like this. Main is on at 100, first down on at 150, second is on at 175 and the third down on at 200. This with the Hornady 350FN at 1920fps.
    I have about three of the 3-9X40's one is on my 338MX the others are on 30-06 and 280's. All are Ballistiplex models and I have the drop figured for each. Have taken a number of deer useing them.
    Just my two bit's worth but I would go with a solid performer and buy Burris.
    Guzziac,

    I would go with the scope that allows the longer eye relief. LOL

    Timberline is on my buy list if I find a great deal. The FFII, not. Not sure where the Timberline is made...

    Have had a 2X7 Burris Compact on my Ruger #1 45-70 for 5 years. I have no complants. It replaced a Redfield the Ruger kicked apart.

    Well,

    I ordered a 3x9 timberline even though I really kinda wanted a 2x7. the 3x9 burris timberline ended up costing me only $119 on sale, about $40 cheaper than the 2x7! It is just over a inch longer, oh well. I'll let you know how it feels once I get it mounted and sighted in.
