Does anyone out there have this scope and what are your opinions on it? Is the 30mm tube weight too much? Is the #4 reticle wide spaced or do the heavy posts come close to the center? How much would you pay for one?

I have this scope.  I've been very happy with it.  It's retained zero through multiple range and hunting trips and I've had no trouble clearly seeing animals by red flashlight or feeder light at night.  It's a little on the large side compared to some scopes I've seen and owned, but I don't carry my rifles for days on end, just for a few hours max, so size and weight are not a huge factor to me.  I don't know exactly how to answer your question about the posts;  They're not right up at the crosshairs, nor are they widely spaced.  The picture of the reticle on swfa's site is about right.  The illumination has been trouble-free and reliable on .223 ARs and .45-70.  The lowest level is very low, and can be adjusted just right for near-blackness to bright moonlight, if night hunting is part of your plan.  The reticle is easy and quick to pick up, but is a little thick if you're looking for something to shoot targets with.  If it's for hunting, I think you'll like it.  How much would I pay?  If I needed another one, I'd pay up to $500 for it probably, but you can get them for much less now on closeout.  I'd buy another one, but I don't have another rifle to put it on, and I'm liking the Accupoints better than the battery-powered reticles.

Had one.  Found it to be heavy and had short eye relief.  Ended up sending it back to Bushnell in the 4200 money back guarantee.  Haven't bought a Bushnell since...
