Forgive me; I'm new.:D

I inherited my dad's custom-built .270. It was built (in the '50s or '60s) on a Springfield action, custom barrel, stock, etc. Really nice (if you don't mind a trigger break like a wet sponge) and a lot of history. HOWEVER, in my youthful curiosity when I was about 13, I twisted the rear scope cap off and touched the crosshairs (It's an old Burris or Bushnell 3X9 if I remember correctly). That, of course, left gunk and a little hair/lint fiber on the X, which I attempted to pull off, which...


wait for it...





snapped the crosshairs. I was sure my dad was going to pummel me into oblivion, but he forbore. Surprisingly, I was still able to hit milk jugs at 250 yards with the crosshairs snapped. However, I'd like to replace the scope. I know practically nothing about optics, other than some Internet rumors, so I thought I'd ask. My priorities are:

-High quality
-Reasonable price
-Gloss black finish
-Looks "traditional"; not huge or long (I'm already well-supplied in that area, wink wink:D )
-Not battery-powered, night-sight, MP3 compatible :p or any other doo-dads

Ideas? Thanks.

If it is Burris send the scope to Burris with your story. Tell the whole story and be truthful - they might fix it for free.

Otherwise, or if it is a Bushnell, just buy another similar used Burris; anything goes wrong with it under normal use and Burris will fix or replace it for free.
