Looking forward to see if they put the 4200s on clearance.
How are the 4200s in low light?
My nephew looked through my Nikon Team Primos today and exclaimed, "Holy Moly! This thing is crystal clear...wow, the clarity!" "Here Dad, look through this." They are a solid Simmons family...hey, they work for them and they have surely taken more deer than me this year...even Mr. Lucky, my nephew...my brother just steps up to 50mm objectives and calls it good.
I'm looking to trade up to either a Zeiss, a Burris Signature Select or something I find that I like in a 42 to 44 Obj...looking to improve my low light while not compromising clarity and crispness.
The Team Primos is a clear crisp scope, but it really gives me nothing in low light. I think my Burris FFII is a smidgeon better (just a hair) in low light but the Team Primos is even shorter on the tube and sits too far forward on my long bolt Savage. The only other thing I could do is replace the Tallyes and go with a rail, but I really just don't like them over my bolt...it's a loading thing for me with that blind magazine.
If, however, the 4200 is an easier mount (I'll go look up the dimensions) and they are out there for a steal...perhaps, I may look at one of these. I'm afraid unless I get up there around $400 I'm just going to be dissatisfied as they are probably (for my eyes) similar or not enough difference to replace the Nikon with.
What say you?
