I currently have a 1-4x 24 scope that Im using that Im not 100 percent sure I like and dont even know if i want to waste ammo sighting it in{brand will remain unamed}. I have always had good luck with bushnell scopes so I was wondering if any one has used the 1-4 or 1-6 x24 power illuminated scopes that Bushnell is now offering. mainly I want to know how they are with both eyes open on 1x since niether is a true 1x scope , they are 1.75 and 1.5.  also how is the daylight illumination?  these are the links to the two scopes   http://swfa.com/Bushnell-1-4x24-Trophy-XLT-30mm-Rifle-Scope-P48386.aspx    http://swfa.com/Bushnell-15-6x42-Trophy-XLT-30mm-Rifle-Scope-P48385.aspx

If you are looking for a true 1x scope why not wait for the SWFA SS 1-6 x24 due out next month.Also you can get at least a $200 coupon if you order by 5/26/12.I'm sure that the glass will equal the Bushnell & the Illum reticle will be better.You can look up the scope on the OT.

If he is looking at the Trophy line I dare bet a $1000 scope will be out of his budget.

What is your price limit, maybe we can suggest some other options within it that you may want to look at.

I have never used either of the scopes you have listed but did have the Elite 4200 1.5-4.  The scope was mounted on a LR-308 and worked well, could be used with both eyes open, but the illumination was not visible in bright sunlight.  The only other issue that I had with the scope was that the eye relief changed quite a bit from 1 to 4.

PROBABLY  300.00 MAX , WHAT I THINK I REALLY LIKE IS THE BURRIS TAC30. ACTUALLY I LIKE THE RETICLE OF THE MILLETT BEST OUT OF ALL THE 1-4'S BUT IVE READ SO MANY THINGS ABOUT POOR QUALITY CONTROL I DONT THINK I WANT TO EVEN BOTHER. I DO LIKE THE FACT THAT THE BUSHNELL IS 1.5 TO 6 THOUGH AND I HAVE ALWAYS LIKED BUSHNELL SCOPES, THEY JUST SEEM TO WORK WELL WITH MY EYESIGHT.

Of the used list the two leopolds, burris and the weaver will have the better glass, The millet and bushnell will follow.  Only a couple are illuminated and not sure if thats a deal breaker for you.  Never known of a daylight situation where illumination is required and even lowering light the reticles of those three will be visible without the illumination.  Under the $300 mark the Burris and weaver stand out for me as top picks with my edge going to the Weaver
 
If you go new here are some others that haven't been mentioned:
Weaver 1.5-6x32 Kaspa Extreme Tactical 30mm Rifle Scope Weaver 1.5-6x32 Kaspa Extreme Tactical 30mm Rifle Scope
Stock # - WEA849813
  • Matte
  • Illuminated Ballistic-X
  • 30mm
$184.95 
This is a new scope, truthfully I'm not even sure its availible yet, that said Weaver has always done well for me so I'd feel good about trying one.

I found this thread while looking at scope options in the $300 range for a M4 I have at my farm. There are a couple guys I know at Ft. Campbell (with the 5th SFG, I'm with the 10th) that were able to attend Shot and look at allot of lower price scopes. Most all the scopes talked about in these posts I've asked about but the scope they were most impressed with was the Firefield 1-6X24. With their only complaint being it's reticle  being a bit busy. They reported the optics and mechanics seemed to be the best of what they looked at/through and handled. I just wish it had Ed Verdugo's GRSC reticle.

I'm only posting this to add another option, always do your own research.

Let me add in the higher price range (not ultra high) Vortex's new 1-6 Razor is very nice, I've been able to use play with it. And in the bit lower 1K range I'd buy (if I had the funds to throw) GSRC's 1-6 (now from Norden) in a heart beat.

Since I don't see a way to edit a post I also want to give "BigJimFish" a thank you for his recommendation of the Firefield 1-6X24 FFP scope after I initially heard about it. He has done hands on testing of the scope.
