Personally, owning the Mueller, Swift Premier and Burris FFII, as well as a few BSAs, I would move the Swifts up to the level of the Muellers and equal if not better to the Burris FFIIs and put the BSA above the Barska.  As I have noted previous posts, I was going to put a
Burris on a Tikka and compared it to a Swift or Mueller extensively.  The difference was immediate, but after comparing for about 30 minutes outdoors, I put the Swift or Mueller on the rifle.  Just my observations.

I would also move the Trijicon Accupoints close to the top of the list, no doubt about it.  If anybody has any doubts, take the TR-22 and compare it closely with any of the high end scope and I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

I've played with just about every Trijicon ever made (including 2.5-10x56) and while very nice, it is not, IMO, a contender for the top of the list.

Nice scopes though and a very unique reticle arrangement.  Still, the scale refers mostly to optical quality.

While I respect your opinion, as I said, I would place them at close to the top of the list.  I too have "played with" them out side against the Swarovskis and found the Trijicon to superior in every aspect.  But, as I said, this was just playing with them, no formal testing.  And because I respect the posts of yourself and others like rifledude who have far more experience than myself with the high dollar scopes, hence the reason I stated close to the top of the list.  The first time I picked up the Trijicon after peering through a Swarovski at my local gunshop, it was the first time I was ever blown away looking through a scope.  This was before making any focus adjustments.  Then I took them both outside and played around.  But again, no formal testing and hence my respect for my colleagues and their knowledge and my statement of close to the top.

With reference to the list, I do own Elite 4200s and Monarchs and there is no question that the Trijicon is optically superior in all aspects, especially when it comes to brightness.  This I have tested rather formally.

Dolphin, if the Trijicon works well for you, then that is the scope you should be using.  I am rather fond of Trijicons, myself, but mostly for their reticle setup.  Optically, in my experience, Trijicon is a touch better than Elite 4200, but not by much.  I fully agree though that it is more than enough for just about any real world situation.
