Hello! I am looking to purchase a 3x9x40 scope with excellent low light

capability. I like the firefly and rainguard features of bushnell 3200 and

4200 scopes and would like to know if they really are beneficial or just

gimmicks?also, does the 4200 have much better light transmission over

the 3200? I would like to stick to 40 mm bell . any and all opinions would be appreciated!!  thank you     curt

Welcome to The OT!!

 

I like/prefer the 4200. It's better than the 3200.

I bought the 4200 3-9x40 and love it. Cheaptrick posted the link to it, and it has an excellent price.

The 4200 is definitly a jump up in glass.

 

Welcome to the forums.

 

Happy Shooting

I like both of my 3200 and 4200 scope and during daylight hours, I can tell little difference to my eyes.  You should compare them both outside in low light conditions and choose, based on your budget.  All of the posts I have read definately give the edge to the 4200 series and I would have to agree, as they are more expensive and I could not be happier with mine.  If you can afford it, go for the 4200.  Another one to look at is the Sightron SII 3x9, with what I believe are equal optics and on par otherwise with the 4200s and cheaper, if you shop around.  I wish SWFA, would pick up the Sightron line.

If your concern is low light performance, I would go with the 4200. As much as I like the FireFly reticle, a 3200 with the FF reticle is not going to overcome the higher quality glass in the 4200 and it's ability to transmit a brighter image. The difference in price is small and definitely worth the extra cost.
