I have 8 of them here, a mix of 3-9s and 3-10s. They track, they're clear, the tubes are straight and a consistent diameter end to end. The Rain Guard is a plus.

Are they a $2200-$2800 March? Not quite.

Would I have any reservations buying another? None what so ever.

I have the Bosch and Lomb Elite 3000 which was the Bushnell 3200 before Bushnell bought out Bosch and Lomb. I think it's a great scope that is comparable to my Leupold Vari-X II. In fact, I may even like it a little more than the Leupold.

Re: Bushnell Elite 3200 series scopes

I bought two 3x9 Bushnell 3200's this year because they were on close-out for around $130 just about everywhere ...Many folks have compared them in quality to Leupolds so I thought, "Why not"?.......I am sorry I did not buy more...They are very clear. They seem to track well (on the adjustments)..The Rainguard is a plus......And the price was more than right.

I have them on three rifles and they're good scopes for the money.I like the short mag 3200's the best because they have a little more eye relief.

Thanks, I am having one installed on my Mod 88 now, I liked the clarity and the lifetime warranty didn't hurt either.

I had one that came on a used gun I hated it. I sold it and replaced it with a burris

Bushnell did not buy out Bausch and Lomb. B&L is a manufacturing company. Bushnel mfrs. nothing. Bushnell is a trade name. They buy their products from other mfrs., then put their name on it.

B&L mfrd. for Bushnell at one time. But B&L is a substantialy larger company than Bushnell, no way Bushnell would buy B&L. Tom.

I believe you are wrong. I went to the Bausch and Lomb company website and they do not mention in their product line hunting optics. Then there is this: read the paragraph after the second pic.
