    They do look like solid scopes. If it weren't for the deals available on E1s I probably would have ended up with one. Not a huge fan of the Made in China aspect, but with Burris's reputation and warranty its a little less concerning to me at least.

    Well, might not be as useful at night as the Wraith but looks alot nicer and will be more practical in the daytime. I usually have the ring base screws facing to the right, but had to flip them around this time as the front one might have interfered with ejection. Overall, I definitely like it (as expected since I already had the same scope with a different reticle).

    I bought one of the 4-14x ff Ei's with the simple plex. it's a great optic so far. ALMOST as good as my redesigned 4-14x weaver grand slam (to my eyes anyway)

    However, the power ring is TIGHT. I called burris, and they said put a hair dryer on the power ring for a bit and it will loosen the grease that sometimes collects in 1 spot during shipping. I tried that, and when it was hot, the ring turned easily, but once it cooled down, it's still hard to turn. a little easier, but still hard. I guess I"m going to have to find a throw lever.

    I was going to buy one of these https://www.amazon.com/WestHunter-Riflescope-Switchview-Magnification-Adjustment/dp/B08QS66ST5/ref=sr_1_6?crid=2MPES7HSDBLYO&keywords=throw+lever&qid=1642780370&sprefix=throw+lever,aps,96&sr=8-6&th=1 but they look to go down to 44mm, and of course the burris ring is 43.98mm. I wonder if I could shim it with some strip of electrical tape...... anybody tried that on a scope?

    Awesome enjoy your new scope. Hope the weather holds so you can hit the range and get it zeroed in. Keep working the power ring. It will loosen up.

    I have to do that fairly regularly since I have piles of caps and none actually fit lol. My FFe1 6.5-20 currently has tape residue on it lol.

    Throw lever is kind of bulky, but at least I can adjust the scope power now.

    As for the adjustment rings being tight....

    I talked about this to a Leupold rep one time. He said that the O-rings have to be tight to hold in the inert gases that keep the scope from fogging. Any scope that had free turning adjustments would fog

    Dunno if it’s true,it’s what I heard. And, I’ve never personally had a Leupold fog

    Seals are seals are seals....loose seal leaky container.

    Ive had great "fun" trying to get paintball guns to seal while giving the least resistance and allowing lowest operating pressure.....i can see mass assembled stuff just being done "tight" to be sure
