For the past few years I’ve been putting the Burris FFII 4.5X14X42mm scope on my rifles. Since the E1 version of the FFII was launched this year, the standard FFII price has increased. I used to be able to find the FFII 4.5X14X42 for about $250, now it’s $299+. My guess is that Burris is wanting to move their customers over to the E1 and phase out the standard FFII. My problem is that I don’t care for the E1. I’m not a fan of the floating reticle and I don’t like the large silk screen printing of the brand name and model. My question is, what brand(s) are comparable to the Burris FFII in clarity, quality and cost? I'd like to stay in the power range of 4-14 or so and I prefer not to go above $300 if possible. What are your suggestions?
