Well, my quest for a scope for my .22 Metallic Silhouette Rifle continues...My prefered gun shop can't seem to get Bushnell Legends for some reason but the can get Bushnell Elites easily...looks like i'm going to have to work some more O.T. to afford these...  
 
So, does anyone own these scopes??? I am currently looking at get one of these scopes with a 40mm Obj Lens and I am seeking opinion/reviews on them:
 
* Bushnell Elite 3200: 5-15, 7-21
* Bushnell Elite 4200: 4-16, 6-24 (and their various versions)
 
Which one do you own and what version (ie side focus, Mil dot, AO)???

I have a 3200 Elite in 7-21X. Not a bad scope, but not great, either; only reason I bought it was because it was claimed to be only 12.8" long, is actually longer (14.5".) There are other arguably "better" ones than the 3200 in your $ range: Nikon Monarch, Weaver Grand Slam, Sightron Big Sky, etc. for a little more $ than the 3200.
Also, remember that the 4200 Elite 6-24 with AO is a very long scope. SF's are usually shorter. Personally, I've been spoiled by side-focus on my other scopes, another reason I can't get excited about my 3200.
