I am going to get a new scope and wanted to know if i should spend the extra money and get a 4200 elite 4x16x40 AO or save and get the 3200 elite 4x12x40 AO. Can any one tell me if there is really an $90.00 price difference in the two scopes.

Get the 4200 if you can, it is well worth the 90.00 the glass is fantastic. That is the biggest difference and you can see that difference when the light begins to fail

There is most definitely a difference in quality between the two models. I don't buy 3200's anymore but love the 4200's. Last 3200 I had was bad for parallax right out of the box and they wanted 12 weeks minimum to fix as well as very tight eye position to maintain sight picture. Optics are noticeably better with the 4200 as well.

It depends on how much you value the $90.00.  If it means you can't buy groceries for a week or pay the gas bill.......... the 3200 will be fine.  If it means you might have to save for another month or you already have enough saved, get the 4200.   You won't be disappointed.

BTW........ what will you be using it for?

The 4-16x40 is an amazing scope for the money, but be aware that eye relief is a tad short if you have it on something with lots of recoil be sure to  hold the rifle snug against your shoulder or you will catch it in the eye.  I put one on a 50 cal Omega musket and I love it but my little 150 lb nephew got smacked in the eye a couple of times before he mentioned that was happening to him.
