    Hi
    can you guys help me out, what's a fair price for a Burris Signature RA 8-32x44 Gloss blk, plex ret.
    I have found one thats been sat in a gunsmiths Since Nov 1999. It was replaced by burris as a warrantee claim then the guy didnt want it.
    Boxed never mounted, sunshade & all the paper work.

    Regards Jon

    Hard to put a price on a scope that is no longer made. It may be new in the box but most, if not all buyers will see it as second hand. Look for around £350 to £400. If someone wants one bad enough they will be prepared to pay a little more for one.

    I have had a couple of these scopes and the clarity of them is just superb, rangefinding is also as good as it gets for a front PA scope, only the Bushnell elite comes close to it. Just couldn't get on with front PA. Good luck in getting it, you won't be disappointed.

    Hi Jon,
    That is without doubt the finest front P/A scope made for an air gun. I think Neils valuation is spot on ,however if this scope has been sat in a retailers for some 15 years I would be straight in with an offer of £250-00 and have a good bartering session with him .
    Regards G.

    i would do the same, 15 years, he cant shift it, if you make any reasonable offer they will likley take it try £200
    after all they are there to sell stuff not hoard it.

    Deal done.
    I didnt need or want it really but it was too good an 0pportunity to miss.
    May try it instead of my 4200 Elite for a while on my TX it certainly looks the part.

    Brilliant front focus range finding scope. :)

    They have the added advantage that even with the sun straight in front of the scope it won't white out. :lev

    Super scopet find the optics much brighter than both my Big Nik and BSA Big 60s', I've had two but struggled with front adjustment on FT and sold them, although I have just bought another to try again.
