Burris Optics is an American company based in Greeley, Colorado. It is named after the founder of the company Don Burris. He worked for the company Redfield, but in 1971, Don established the company we know today – Burris Optics. First, the company started with the production of rifle scopes, but quickly started to expand the production. Now Burris Optics produces rifle scopes, binoculars, spotting scopes, sights, mounts and a lot of other accessories.
Burris Eliminator IV LaserScope 4-16×50
At Shot Show 2020 In Las Vegas, Burris Optics introduced their fourth generation of the popular Burris Eliminator LaserScope. Design-wise, the Eliminator IV is quite similar to the 3rd generation, except for the battery compartment on the side. It is now a lot sleeker and holds 2 AA batteries in place.
The new Burris Eliminator IV is available in a 4-16x magnification range and has a 50-millimeter objective lens. The lenses are improved, so the clarity and the light transmission rate of the glass is better. This means you can use the scope in darker areas compared to the older generation Eliminator scopes. The scope features their proven X96 reticle, which is placed in the second focal plane.
All the moving parts like the ocular adjustment, magnification ring, and the parallax adjustment are rubberized for a good grip in all weather conditions, with or without gloves. The Eliminator IV features the strongest laser rangefinder until now, capable to measure up to 2000 yards (1829 meters). The Laser can be activated with a button positioned on the left side of the objective, or with the new remote control that can be positioned wherever you want. This remote control is connected to the rifle scope via Bluetooth, so there are no annoying cables.
Burris improved the ballistic software, so the calculations are now even more precise than in the previous generations. The ballistic program takes into account the ballistic coefficient of the bullet, the muzzle velocity, and the inclination. It works with all kinds of bullets/rifles, even with the low-velocity slugs, rimfires, muzzleloaders, etc.
The Burris Eliminator IV is a great tool for long-range hunting, and thanks to the easy operation, it is perfectly suitable also for older hunters, that don’t want to learn to use BDC turrets on hunting scopes. You also don’t need any additional rangefinder, so one device less to carry around.
