Used Burris scope question

I got an older USA made Burris Signature 3-12 scope on a used gun purchase the other day that has a daylight/twilight feature on the objective. Is this of any real value or just a gimmick? The scope is heavy but very clear and appears well made. Thinking about putting it on my Ruger 220 Swift. This is a scope I haven't seen before. Thanks for any comments.

    Gimmick with not a lot of real world applications unless you are shooting right into the sun. The scope as you found out is a good scope. Burris makes good stuff, warranted for life.

    You will like it on any gun you mount it on!

    Burris still makes that scope in their Signature series line. Well, I take that back, as I just looked at their web site, and they have discontinued it this year. But up untill last year they made that scope, although I am not sure if they had the adjustable iris or not, for the daylight/twilight feature up untill then.

    I have one of the very first 3-12x Signature series scopes they made, and it is still clear as a bell. The adjustable iris is not just a gimmic, but will severely cut down sun glare, and will also cut back the twilight veiwing time if left in the wrong posistion. I got this one in 1985, so it is 27 years old.
