Alright, does anyone happen to know the tube length on a Monarch 4x40, Monarch 3-9x40, and/or Elite 4200 3-9x40?  I'm trying to decide what to put on a long action Savage, and I'm going to need something with a fairly long tube, even with extended bases.

I don't know about the Nikons, but I'm pretty sure the Bushnell is 6 inches.

Thanks.  I actually measured a 3200 at Dick's today, and that's what I got too.  Anyone got the Nikon info?

...................................The mounting tube length on my 3x9 Elite 4200 is 6"......... The Nikon website does not give mounting tube lengths!......When you look elsewhere, you find no lengths there either! "N/A from manufacturer" is what you see!!................However, you should be able to use a 3-9x40 Monarch on the longer action. The 4x, not sure.

I'm just GUESSING, but I believe the tube length on Nikon is shorter than the Bushnell---like in the neighborhood of 5.5 inches. I know that it will span a long action, but you are not going to be able to yank it backwards at all.  (But, I'm just guessing from looking at 'em....)

Jason,
 
Curious as to why to need a long tube WITH extended bases?  Is this an eye relief or length of pull issue?  I mounted a 4200 on a Savage short action and there wasn't enough ER for my kid, so he has to creep up on the stock.  It was ok for me, but just barely.  You might consider the Zeiss Conquest 3-9X40 with it's 4" of ER to solve this problem.

Went home and measured my Monarch 3-9x40 this weekend, it's 5.25 inches.  The 4x40 is probably even shorter too...  This is a rifle my grandpa gave me.  The crappy old Bushnell Sportview 4-12x40 had a tube length just under 6", and it barely fit in the stock Burris mounts and rings.  I guess the 4200 would fit for sure, and I was really hoping to squeeze a $100 Monarch 4x40 in there, but I'll probably just end up putting extended bases on it and transferring my Monarch 3-9.  As much as I'd like to put a Conquest on it, this rifle just isn't going to see much use.  My other thought was putting an older Leupold M8 fixed 4x with a longer tube on it, but people don't seem to be very high on them.
