BURRIS ELIMINATOR 3 4-16x50 LASERSCOPE

BURRIS ELIMINATOR III 4-16x50 LASERSCOPE

Early in my shooting career I recall sitting around talking with fellow shooting friends about someday it would be great to see a riflescope with built in ranging to simplify scope use and increase range and accuracy. Of course these discussions were long before mobile phones and social media. Yes Im old. Today it’s a different world and high tech electronics have found there way into consumer riflescopes and the subject of this post the BURRIS ELIMINATOR III 4-16×50 LASERSCOPE delivers my “someday” wish to today’s modern rifle shooter.

The Eliminator 3 when setup for your ammunition will measure the distance to your target and automatically adjust for trajectory based on the measured distance. Burris offers an Eliminator Cartridge List with manufacturers 750 yard bullet drop data for most common ammunition.

Burris Eliminator III LaserScope 4-16x50mm

The Eliminator III LaserScope is the most innovative and effective hunting riflescope in the world. Combining outstanding optics, pinpoint laser rangefinding, and precision trajectory compensation for the exact ammunition you choose for your hunt, it eliminates most of the variables and guesswork that often cause hunters to go home empty-handed. In one fast sequence the Eliminator III determines the distance to your target, factors in your trajectory and illuminates the perfect holdover. It’s that simple.

The Eliminator III significantly extends the range and accuracy of your favorite rifle. No other riflescope combines the level of quality, technology, accuracy, repeatability, speed and effectiveness. It will greatly increase the distance at which you can make an ethical shot.

Built-In Laser Rangefinder

Laser range capability out to1,200-plus yards with reflective target, 750-plus yards with non-reflective target. Allows you to range your target without
carrying additional equipment. New model with remote cable switch makes ranging activation even easier.

Automatic Trajectory Compensation

Customized trajectory compensation calculates the perfect holdover at your exact distance; program your cartridge’s ballistics information, push a button and a bright-red, illuminated dot signifies your new aiming point. Trajectorycompensation works on any magnification.

Integrated Inclinometer

Integrated inclinometer adjusts for any angle on uphill or downhill shots.

Wind Hold-Off

Scope displays a 10 mph Wind Value to indicate wind hold-off for your specific cartridge at the indicated range to
target. Wind Value represents how many dots to hold into the wind for a 10 mph crosswind.

Strong, Low Mounting

Riflescope comes with its own bases that attach to any Weaver-style or Picatinny base. No rings required.

Easy Programming

The Eliminator III comes with a programming book, and there is a web site app to help get the precise programming numbers you need, based on your elevation, atmospheric condition, and cartridge of choice. Check it out here.

Burris Eliminator III Model Number 200119:

Eliminator III Model #200119 has some big changes over the other Eliminator III models:

  • It features a Remote Cable Switch to activate the On/Range button from any position the shooter desires.  The cable can be attached to either side of the Eliminator. The cable is a flexible coil, and has a length of 14-24 inches to accommodate various mounting positions.
  • Model #200119 is also compatible with muzzle loader and low velocity cartridges (.300blk, rimfire, etc.).  You are able to select 50, 100 or 200 yard zeros.  The model #200119 is the only current Eliminator model with these abilities.

NOTE: It is not possible to alter or upgrade other Eliminator models to use the Model #200119 features. The remote cable is not available separately, and will not work on other models (it replaces the current mechanical switch with an electronic signal, which required an entirely new internal circuit system).

NIKON BLACK X1000 6x14x50SF 308 SCOPE

NIKON BLACK X1000 6x14x50SF 308 AR SCOPE

When I saw the Nikon M-308 series 308 AR scopes going out of stock at the usual big name sources I had a suspicion there were new Nikon scopes on the horizon. The scope market is very competitive especially in the $399-$699 price range so it’s no big surprise I was right.  Recently the Nikon Black X1000 Riflescopes became available for purchase. Nikon appears to be marketing their Black1000 scopes and Nikon Black scope mounts towards the “MSR” rifle shooter. If you dont know what an MSR is It’s the new moniker given to the AR-15, AR-10 and 308 AR platforms. MSR is the acronym for “Modern Sporting Rifle”. MSR is marketing disguised as political correctness. That’s a story for another post.

Anyhow the Nikon Black X1000 appear to be priced about $150 less expensive than the Vortex PST Gen II. This is a smart move in my opinion. Nikon also seems to be touting their warranty. Again Nikon is clearly targeting Vortex.

NIKON BLACK X1000 6x14x50SF 308 SCOPE

Nikon BLACK riflescope series represents a new category of dedicated optics with models engineered for both precision long-range rifle and the action-gun AR enthusiasts. For the precision rifle shooter, BLACK X1000 models feature MRAD or MOA reticles while AR/MSR shooters can take advantage of rapid-action, close-to-intermediate-range targeting capability of the BLACK FORCE1000 riflescope and SPEEDFORCE reticle.

NIKON BLACK X1000 6x14x50SF 308 AR SCOPE RETICLE OPTIONS

The 4-16x50SF is a dedicated precision riflescope that offers the precision, the features and the ruggedness serious shooters demand. For starters, it is built with an aircraft grade aluminum alloy 30mm main body tube. With a choice of X-MOA, Illuminated X-MOA or Illuminated X-MRAD reticle, the riflescope delivers 90 total MOA internal adjustment travel for the X-MOA reticle and 25 MRAD for X-MRAD reticles. Its turrets have ¼ MOA or .1 MRAD click graduations yielding 12 MOA / 5 MRAD per revolution depending on variant. All of the 4-16x50SF models have the reticle placed in the riflescope’s second focal plane, so all holdover corrections, ranging and other measurements using the indicated reticle subtensions should be done at 16x magnification.

Nikon’s Illuminated X-MOA and X-MRAD Reticles

Specialized reticles and adjustment systems in BLACK X1000 are glass-etched MRAD or MOA tactical-style variants with illuminated option. Windage and elevation turret internal travel is enhanced for long-range dialing and crisp, click-stop movements operate with no backlash and are both precise and repeatable. The X-MRAD reticle presents the shooter with clean and visually simple, yet highly functional and advanced tools for estimating range, maintaining holdovers or dialing elevation come ups and compensating for wind. An advantage of using these tactical-style reticles is that it can be applied to virtually any shooting application regardless of caliber or ballistic performance, and can be further optimized for specific shooting situations utilizing Nikon’s Spot On Ballistic Match Technology.

Full Multilayer Coatings On All Air-to-Glass Surfaces

With a very capable four-time zoom optical system built with Nikon’s renowned lead- and arsenic-free glass, BLACK X1000 lenses are fully multicoated with anti-reflective compounds for consistently bright, sharp, high contrast sighting at all magnifications.

Turret-mounted Side Focus Parallax Adjustment

Each of the riflescopes in this series features a turret-mounted side focus parallax adjustment to enable fine-tuning of the sight image without changing shooter’s position.

Generous, Consistent Eye Relief and Elevated Windage & Elevation Turrets

Consistent eye relief keeps your brow safe, while the exposed turrets are engraved for maximum readability while offering smooth, repeatable adjustments.

VORTEX RIFLESCOPES FLARE ILLUMINATED BUBBLE LEVEL SCOPE LEVEL

Vortex Riflescopes Flare Illuminated Bubble Level

Im a big advocate of scope levels. I look forward to getting a Vortex Flare on one of my rifles.

The Vortex Riflescopes Flare Illuminated Bubble Level is everything you ever wanted in a scope level. Low-signature, rear-facing illumination with three intensity levels ensures optimal visibility in all light conditions. The recessed push-button control is easily accessed from a shooting position. The integrated Picatinny rail mount attaches easily and keeps the level low and trim. It can be mounted and removed with the riflescope on or off your rifle. SKU: FBL-1

Battery – Flare Illuminated Bubble Level utilizes an LR621 battery. The Vortex Riflescopes Flare Illuminated Bubble Level is made in the USA.



What is the Purpose of a Scope Level

Your rifle when properly set up is using the vertical and horizontal plane as a frame of reference. When you shoot the force of gravity will be at work pulling your bullet towards the earth. Should you want to shoot out further gravity has more time to impact the bullet and you may need to make a correction (hold over or dial your turret) in order to impact your target. Should you cant your rifle it will no longer be in the correct frame of reference so your corrections may not be as accurate as you desire. Having a level gives you the opportunity to make sure you are correctly positioning your rifle and makes sure your corrections will be as intended.

Vortex Optics RAZOR AMG UH-1 Holographic Sight

It appears that Vortex Optics now has Eotech in their sights with the announcement of the AMG UH-1 Holographic Sight. The timing could not be better given Eotech’s latest troubles with the admission of cold weather distortion, reticle fade, thermal drift and parallax issues.

Introducing the Vortex Optics RAZOR AMG UH-1 Holographic Sight.

The RAZOR AMG UH-1 Holographic Sight affectionately known in-house as “Huey.”  The UH-1 is a completely new force in weapon mounted holographic technology, and you’re one of the first shooters to see it! Inside the durable aluminum chassis the UH-1 features fewer moving parts compared to traditional holographic sights. This equates to maximum durability. The holographic sight is powered with the included CR123A battery. the weapon sight also has the option of running LFP CR123A batteries. LFP CR123A batteries can be recharged using the on-board, waterproof micro-USB port.

We believe the shooter is the only one who should see the new Vortex EBR-CQB reticle so we engineered the entire system to virtually eliminate all traces of forward signature, unlike any other red dot or holographic sight on the market.
