They all look the same and I thought I read somewhere they are. Are they except for coatings. I am interested in something like the 15-45x60 setup. Is one better than the other. I think B&L has the rain guard standard. Is there another brand I should look at ..Thanks Bill

The B&L Elite is no longer made.  B&L markets no sporting optics at all.  Their entire line is now marketed under the Bushnell name, so the Bushnell Elite is the exact same scope that has simply been rebranded.


The similar looking Nikon scope is made in the same factory at the same time and is essentially, the same scope.  There is a minor variation on the variable power eyepeice (Bushnell = 15-45X60 and the Nikon = 16-47X60) to avoid patent conflicts and the Bushnell also has their RainGaurd coatings, which the Nikon does not.


Buy the Bushnell before the end of the year and the company will also send you a free gear bag.
