I just purchase a Knight KP1. I have barrels for 50 cal and 270. I will need two new scopes and don’t want to spend more than 225 on each. I want one that has good low light as muzzle loading season in Missouri is late December. I am leaning toward the Nikon as they have a limited lifetime warranty and Bushnell only has one year. Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Bushnell elite scopes have a " "No Questions Asked One Year Warranty ELITE Replacement Policy" (This offer is limited to one original purchase refund per address. For additional information about this offer, please contact Customer Service) " AND a " Limited Lifetime Warranty ".

The elite 3200 is a great hunting scope and is very well made. Rainguard is a deal maker if it ever rains where you hunt.

I have both... and the bushnell is more clear at longer range (400yds in this case).

Thanks, I missed the warranty information on the Elite 3200. On its web page it only lists the "No Questions Asked" one-year replacement (U.S. only). Has anyone used the Firefly edition?

I've never used a nikon rifle scope, but I am a huge fan of their other optics/camaras. I can personally vouche for Bushnell Elites, though. Fine rifle scopes for the money.

One scope down. Picked up a Leupold VX-III 3.5-10x40 (55046) at Dick’s Sporting Goods last night for $209 (1/2 price).
