I was just wonderin if this is a good scope concidering its price, or should I go with Burris FF2, or maybe a Bushnell 3200? What kind of warranties come standard with these scopes?

hi..Out of the scopes you listed I like the Nikon Buckmaster the best (new model) the older (last year model) was very similar to the Bushnell 3200 Elite in optical quality and at that time I would have said go with the Burris.  Now, Nikon has improved the Buckmasters optics so I would definitly put it ahead of the Bushnell 3200 and slightly better (to my eyes) then the Burris Fullfield. 

 

All three are good scopes, I just think the Buckmaster has the slight edge over the Burris.  Bushnell 3200 I havent been overly impressed with, now step up to the Bushnell 4200 Elite and that is one very awsome scope.

 

As far as warranties, most things today carry a life time warranty, but there may be exceptions.  You could always call the store here on this forum the staff is very helpful and they would be better able to give you the real optical differences between the scopes. 

 

I usually sound like a broken record but for a bit more money, if you want about the best scope out there in the price range check out the Weaver Grand Slam series it is definitly a step up above the ones you are looking at.  Its not quite up there with the Bushnell 4200 Elite but then again neither is the price but it is very very clear and has great light gathering capabilites.  The down side is some people dont like the looks of the power adjust ring since it is large but it works great with gloves on in cold areas.  Also, it has shorter eye relief (less then the Nikon about the same as the Bushnell) so on a real hard kicking gun I would look at something else BUT for the money I dont think it can be beat.

 

Good luck

AC
