I am looking for a scope for .22 lr rifle and I almost decided to buy Trophy 4-12x40 AO. The problem is that Bushnell has also Trophy XLT series of scopes and I don't know what is the difference between Trophy and Trophy XLT.

I would really appreciate if someone would told me that.

They went from multi-coated to fully multi-coated lenses. The price went up slightly with this change.
Here is a quick reference comparing the standard Trophy and XLT. It shows the coatings difference.

Also from Bushnell's web site I found this information. http://www.bushnell.com/products/scopes/riflescopes/trophy-xlt/
"The most proven riflescope in history is now deadlier than ever. From the class-leading 91% light transmission to the nearly indestructible one-piece tube, every aspect of the new Trophy® XLT is newly optimized to elevate what has become the American standard for excellence in the field. Upgraded fully multi-coated optics deliver ultra-bright images at those precious moments between dark and almost dark."

I also saw this information on Bushnell website and was surprised to see that the price for XLT version in lower in most shops than for normal Trophy.  Thank you for clearing this question for me.

The .22lr is an old Voere semi-automatic rifle. They don't make this kind of rifles any more but this one is still shooting fine and accurate enough.

Every now and than I get an idea to buy a better .22 lr like Weihrauch or Anschutz ser. 64 but than I would have one more dilemma about the scope for the rifle. Wink

If you can afford the price difference I would go straight to the 4200 series 3-9 while it is on sale.

Never seen one of those and would be interested in seeing a pic or 2 if you can manage it.

What type of restrictions "if any" are there for shipping from the U.S. to Slovenia as far as optics goes?

What choices do you have locally? "not at all trying to cheat Chris out of a buck here, but shipping might be an issue and shipping cost may be a factor"

Have you added anything from SWFA to your cart and checked shipping yet?

FRND is dead on with the 4200 being a really good deal right now if you can afford it.

Locally I can buy all models from Bushnell, Nikon, BSA, Tasco, Leupold and probably some more from non-EU companies. Most successful EU companies here are Swarovski, Zeiss (only above Conquest), Kahles, Meopta, Docter, Kaps, Vixen and Schmidt&Bender.

The problem is the way of thinking here. Thinking is that something has to be expensive to be any good. This is the main difference between US and EU markets. Because of that all companies which start to sell things in US market start with low prices. Here they start the other way around. For comparison:

Bushnell Elite 4200 2.5-10x50 Multi-X costs about $540 in US, in EU it costs 800€ ($1080). Even worse with Nikon Monarch Gold 2.5-10x56 it costs $680 in the States and more than 1000€ ($1380) in EU. And I have seen numerous times when people bought Monarch Gold because they thought that if it costs 1000€ it has to be decent, compared to normal Monarch which costs 620€. Normal Monarch line costs 4X less than Swarovski and ordinary people here thing that because of that it is also 4x worse.

You can see the price list for Bushnell in Slovenia in this link:

http://www.rodeoteam.si/download_cenik/14.pdf


I buy almost all optics in US and have no problems with shipping. Like for the Trophy XLT in this topic. The calculation is the following:

Trophy XLT 4-12x40 .... $158,99
USPS International Priority Mail ...$32,00

Then I have to pay tax in Slovenia for the scope and shipping ... 25%

Grand total is  $235,75 and that is about 175€. Regular price here is 349,99€ so I save 175€. And I don't have the problem that I would think that something cheap is of bad quality. For my use it is OK.

there are several reasons some more notables are the us customs regulations and the amount of liability on foreign credit card fraud.
