I was just wondering if the tactical turrets like on the bushnell 4200 tactical scope (426245T) or the ones from the 3200 tactical scopes would fit on the 4200 3x9x40? I purchased this scope from SWFA recently and wondered if it was possible (like on the leupold custom site where the turrets on any scope can be upgraded). I love the scope as is, but the tactical turrets would make it a cheap alternative to a leupold mark 4 MR/T.

That would be a good question to call Bushnell and ask. I have never heard of anyone retrofitting target knobs onto a 4200 but they are nice glass. It really is not an alternative to a Mark 4 MR/T they are a much tougher built scope made for the abuse of military service. If what you want is a true tactical then save up and get the real thing would be my advise.

The answer to the question is that they would probably fit, however Bushnell is not as flexible as Leupold is in doing things outside of what the scope came with from the factory. They are just not set up to make the modifications like Leupold does routinely.

I was thinking I would do the installation myself if I could get a hold of the turrets. I'm not sure if Bushnell sells these kind of things or if they don't like people doing such modifications. Guess I'll google a bit and call Bushnell.

OK I found the parts ordering form from bushnell can anybody help me out with all the parts I would need to order to replace the windage and elevation turrets?

http://www.bushnell.com/customer_service/order_forms/RIFLESCOPES_PARTS.pdf

I am assuming I would need a windage and elevation cap, thumb screws, shrouds, screws, Dials (not sure which ones) etc...   Thanks, Don

I could be wrong on this one, but if you remove the entire turret assembly will you have to re purge the nitrogen in the scope? Are you thinking that you just want to replace the knob(s)?

That scope don't really have enough internal adjustment to make it a good tactical scope anyway.  I think you are wasting your time and will probably just end up ruining the scope if you try to do this yourself.

One of the best things about Bushnell other than their glass is their warranty. You will void that by doing this. I would advise that you just save for a little while and get the tactical 4200 variant, or something that would be along those lines. Nikon makes a nice scope as well as Burris, and then there are some higher priced scopes as well. You could also just invest in a BRAND NEW Super Sniper, which is a true tactical and extremely durable affordable quality scope.

Yeah I have the 10x Super Sniper on my Serbu .50 BMG.  I just like to modify some of the less expensive equipment I own, it's kind of enjoyable to me, call it a hobby.  I like the idea of making a decent  medium range variable tactical scope and for the $250 I'm not too worried about the warranty.  I'm on the lookout for a Leupold mark 4 MR/T that is reasonably priced used or reconditioned but in the mean time I was going to tool around with the bushnell.  I guess I will call bushnell and say I need to replace the turrets on a 4200 tactical.
