Is the Trijicon Accupoint 2.5-10x56 cross hair with dot worth $250.00 more than the Bushnell 4200 Elite 2.5-10x50 with #4 illuminated dot reticle?  Is the Trijicon worth paying the difference in price between it and Trijicon 3-9x40 with the same reticle?  The only one I have been able to look through is the Trijicon 3-9x.

If you have experience with these illuminated reticle scopes, I would certainly appreciate your feedback.

I think it depends on how much you value low light performance and how much value you place on the Accupoint's battery-free dual illumination system vs. the lit 4200.  It costs more to grind the larger 56mm objective lens than a 50mm or 40mm lens.  If you will routinely be using 8X and above in low light and don't object to the larger size scope, you may appreciate the slightly improved light transmission of the 2.5-10X56.  The Trijicon Accupoint series and the Bushnell 4200 series both have optics manufactured by Light Optical, and they are equivalent optically.

I'm a big fan of the Accupoint scopes, but the 4200 is also an excellent scope at a great price.

I love the illumination system on the Trijicon and never having to turn it on, off, or replace batteries. However, for the difference, $250, is a lot of batteries in the 4200.  I would have to go with the Bushnell if it were me.  Glass clarity you looking at similar but the Bushnell has the rainguard coating on the lens which I like and makes a difference if you ever hunt in inliment weather.

Thanks for the responses.  You have validated my choice - the Bushnell 4200.  I will post a noobs review after I get it in and installed.

I have noticed that latest edition to the 4200 line. It sounds like what many of us have been wanting, and Bushnell listens. I think that scope would be excellent on a sporter weight predator gun, even a deer gun.
That makes two Bushnells I want to check out. Urimaginaryfrnd has very high praise for the 4-16x40 Elite and that sounds like the ticket for a heavy barreled daytime rig.

Good question, thanks
Doug

FWIW, the light will eventually go out on the Trijicon. I have their night sights on some of my self defense pistols and after a while they will dim and finally go dark although I can  have new tritium lamps installed on those sights if needed. I'm not sure about their scopes.
