I'm using a Bushnell Elite 4200 1x4x20 Ill. Dot scope on a little carbine for hunting out here in the rainforest.  It's on a 250 Sav. that I use for calling preds. and it works great.  I would like to set up another rig on a smaller caliber  (222-223).  Any imput on the Trophy would be apreciated.

I am guessing the Elite 4200 you are referring to is 1.25-4x24, right?

Trophy 1-4x24 is not a bad scope for what you pay for it, but it is definitely not in the same league with you Elite 4200; not even in the ballpark, really.

What are you looking for in this scope? price range (is $150 price tag of the Trophy all you are willing to spend)? size? reticle? illumination?

I realy like the Ill. Dot and the large FOV of these scopes.  I had a Tropy 2x7 about 20yrs ago and it was a pretty nice scope, very clear and reliable, just didn't like the gloss finnish as most of my shooting is close in prerdator calling.   Out on the east side of the state a plain 1x4 is all I ever need but here in the coastal forests the overstory and perpetual cloud cover, even Heavy Duplex rets. can be hard to pick up.

If you absolutely need illumination, then things get complicated for you.  Inexpensive scopes with illumination weak enough for really work well in low lighting conditions are far and few in between.

I am currently testing Hawke Endurance 30 1.25-4.5x24 and it is a pretty nice scopes.  Illumination is a little brighter than I like, but overall I am impressed with the scope.  I also have a Millett DMS-1 and Hawke is a noticeably better scope, although I rpefere the DOnut-Dot reticle in the Millet somewhat.

Thanks for your help.  I finally got to look at a Throphy scope, I didn't even have to look through the scope the eyepeice and power adjustment ring are so huge that I couldn't mount it low without interfereing with the bolt handle.
