I just bought a beautiful Air Arms TX200 airgun in .177 caliber and wanted to put a nice scope on it.  I have been thinking about the Bushnell Elite 3200 4-12x40 with the Ballistic Reticle (32-4124B).  I like the reticle design and zoom range, and it still has 50 minutes of elevation adjustment (unlike the Elite 4200 4-16x40 which only has 40 minutes). 

 

My main question is are the Elite 3200's airgun rated?  Also, does this scope have an adjustable objective?  The SWFA website and the Bushnell website list the Elite 3200 4-12x40 with multi-x reticle (32-4124A) to have an AO, but not the Ballistic reticle model (32-4124B).  Is that just an error?

 

I have searched on this forum and many others and have found scattered reports of "elites" or the Elite 4200's being airgun rated, but not specifically the Elite 3200. 

 

Chris (SWFA) can you help?  Or anyone else?

 

Thanks!

holmes: sorry

I have looked into your Elite 3200 problem and have found some answers. Unfortunatly they may not be the answers your are looking for.

 

first: I did find that the Elite 3200 is airgun rated and does have an adj obj which may extend to all reticle types.

       I'm not going to say exactly the balistic reticle is included. I can't say for sure as i have only seen one with duplex reticle. So swfa probably hasn't posted and error on thir web site so much as they just dont offer the 3200 in the type reticle you want, check out other websites look untill you findout what it is you need to know

 

or if bushnell doesn't offer the 3200 ao with the balistic reticle you could the get the duplex and send to bushnell to have the reticle upgraded. this would probably cost you sixty bucks plus shipping but hey you'd have the scope you wanted

 

hope maybe I've been some kind of help, good luck, bye bye

Antibeous,

 

Thanks for the reply and the suggestions. 

 

Bushnell recently offered the Elite 3200 4-12x40 in a Ballistic reticle (in addition to the regular one with the multi-x reticle) which does show up on the SWFA website.  It's just that the version with the ballistic reticle doesn't list an AO on the SWFA website, but in the picture, the objective does have markings on it like it is adjustable.  To make things worse, on the Bushnell website, they do not list the ballistic reticle version as having an AO either, and just like on SWFA, their picture of it also has markings on the scope which shows an AO.  I find it hard to believe that the same scope with a different reticle would have different AO options.  That doesn't make it impossible, though.

 

May I ask how you found out the Elite 3200 is airgun rated?  Do you have first hand experience?  I am asking because I have tried to find out online, and have had no luck.  I just wanted to make sure it was from a reputable source before I went ahead and bought the scope. 

 

Thanks for the help!

 

Holmes.

 

PS.  Actually my name is not Chris.  In my original post I was asking if Chris from SWFA would chime in with any knowledge he had on the matter.

www.straightshooters.com is where i found out that the 3200 is airgun rated. as to weather or not this is a reputable source I'll let you decide. strait shooters deal only in air guns and air gun accessories this doesn't mean their reputable but it goes a long towards maybe. They claim that all of the scopes they sell are air gun rated. the 3200 is rated for heavy recoil airguns so good decision. 10 to infinity good decision. bushnell good decision.

 

also: I read somewhere on this forum that all of bushnell's scopes are airgun rated but all are not adj obj. same deal with leupold and I think burris, but Im not sure about burris.

 

sorry about the name mixup

sorry it took so long to reply

Antibeous,

 

Thanks a lot for all the information!  I think this scope is looking like the one.

 

Again, thanks.
