I want to get a 3-9x40 but dont know what to chose, isn't to big a deal as this will be my scope i will use as i save up for better scopes i really want, but just wondering it anyone has compared these side by side?

I have a legend 2-7x32 and it has excellent glass with its 91% light transmission, the prostaff should be similar with 90%, Im wondering about the other features though as i have never looked through a prostaff

what kind of money are you trying to save?  What are you wanting to spend on this scope? What will it be used for?

If i'm not mistaken, they are both assembled in the same factory. You can be assured that they are both of good quality as the factory that assembles them has good reputation when it comes to their products. I have not looked thru a nikon prostaff but i've been able to look thru a legend and a nikon monarch. the legend is clear and bright altough not as much as a monarch since it's more expensive. But they are good nontheless and assuming that a legend has more light transmission, it should be better than the prostaff. I was told the legend uses the exact same optics as the elite 3200 only without the rain guard coating. Did notice though that the legend has a wider field of view than a nikon monarch, i can't say if that applies as well to the prostaff. Big%20Smile

Saving up for a elite 6500 2.5-16x42, this scope with be my temporary / spare, it will be used on a .223 for spotlight shooting foxes, wild dogs, hares and rabbits

the legend should work did you check swfa's prices?? i have some experience with the pro staff my bro in law has one and its not a bad scope its better than the 7 yr old buckmaster i just sold, but then again the new bushnell trophy i bought to replace it for a while (same type of situation you are in wanting to buy a nice scope) and the bushnell is pretty nice too for $100 i would buy the legend
