Burris retical
I acquired a used Burris 3x9x32 pistol scope and it came with no box or information for the scope and need know the retical dimensions. I called Burris and they told me to use their current 3x9 rifle scope retical dimension. I looked at their website and I couldn’t find that rifle scopes retical dimensions. I’m disappointed with Burris that they don’t have an archive of info on their older products.

If no one has that info, I’ll have to do it the old fashion way and graph a grid and try to establish the dimensions that way.

P.S. I posted this query in scope chat room with no responce.

Peter--I have quite a few of those old catalogs but they only go back to 2006. I don't think the 3-9x LER was being produced then. May have to just measure it sir.

Thanks for looking.
What I find annoying, is that Burris could not give me that info. I know of other companies that have archived info on their legacy products, just not Burris. Makes rethink about the next scope I buy.

Something must be up with Burris... There current website ballistics portion doesn't correctly calculate the yardages for the handgun 3x-12x scope when doing a chart for the hash marks on the reticle.

I afraid that Burris has been taken over by the bean counters.

From the 1994 Burris catalog.

These dims represent inches at 100 yd.

Thinnest part;
3 X = 0.7
9 X = 0.3

Thickest part;
3 X = 1.5
9 X = 0.6

Width of fine section;
3 X = 19
9 X = 7.58

Thanks for the info. I kind of gave up on anybody having that info. Thanks again.
