I need to get my grandson a better scope for his .243. Between the Elite 4200 3x9x40 and the Nikon Monarch UCC 4x12x40 is the Monarch much better, especially low light? I think these are my final two choices.

The 3-9 Elite has to be the deal of the century. I own 6 4200's and have never had a problem with any of them. Nikon makes a good scope as well, but the Elites are my first scope of choice in the under $500 club. They are great optically and are very durable as well. Your grandson will be thrilled.

timbercruiser:  I would agree that the 4200 Elite is a better scope. However, the Nikon Monarch is still a very fine scope with very nice optics.  My question is why the difference in magnification between the two?  Also, what type of shooting will your grandson be doing?  If its a lot of plains and open areas with longer shots then maybe the 4x scope is they way to go especially if he is looking at smaller game.

 

If the hunting consists of some plains and some wooded areas or if for larger game then the 3-9 would be my choice.

 

Happy hunting

AC

I saw the Monarch on the Sample List for about the same price. He is 12 and I want a good scope that will serve his needs for several years, he will probably inherit my Diavari then..
