I bought a Bushnell Eite 4200 last year. I guess it was when they were discontinuing the 4200 line. I got the scope N.I.B. for $149.99. 

After sighting my rifle in last week, I was kicking myself for not buying a couple more at that price.

My question is, Is the new line of Elite scopes equal to the 4200 in quality?

It really depends on which model, IMHO, all Bushnell did was change the labels. If you do a bit of research on the scope you are thinking about, if it was a 4200 before the label change, it is the same now. But this is pure speculation on my part... You would probably have to contact Bushnell for confirmation.

I have the 4200 as well and got it at the same price whiich I feel was a steal.

I often wondered if the new Elites have the 3200 or 4200 glass myself.

I've had both. It's the exact same scope from what I could tell. Just says Elite instead of 4200 Elite around the objective end. Also doesn't say Elite on the one turret cap. Only real difference I could see glass wise was the objective lens had a more purple hue to it.

As I understand it, remaining models of both 3200s and 4200s are now merely called Elites and about the only way to tell the difference is with careful comparison of specs and pricing.
There are also differences in the lens coatings.

The improvements were upgraded lense coatings, Argon purging and Rainguard HD (some of the most recent labeled 4200's might have Rainguard HD) . Pretty easy to cross reference what used to be a 3200 or 4200 based on the zoom ratio's. The exception is the 3-9x40 w/o the side focus feature.
