Do the older B & L Elite 4200 scopes have better glass than the Bushnell  4200 series ? Are the internals all the same on both brands ?

 
Thanks

Same scope inside as far as construction. Some feel the Bushnell series has better glass. I've owned both but never put one along side another so I could say for sure.

Thanks for the info Roy. I have a chance to buy a used B & L for $250, but for $40 more, I can get a new Elite.

There is no way to know as Bushnell made and sold many 4200 scopes a few years ago with 3200 hardware and just upgraded some lens with 4200 glass.  I would buy the new scope.

The Bushnells have Rainguard.  Only maybe the last ten Bausch and Lombs had Rainguard before they changed the name.  Otherwise, they are the same scope.

Just before they discontinued the 3200 and 4200 scopes Bushnell admitted in a writeup that they were selling a "special" sale 4200 scope that was basically a 3200 with 4200 glass elements.

wonder what the diff is.   I bet I got 1 or even 2 of those.  Got one for $199.00  I have it on a 204 for coyote hunting... works fine for that
