Built for extended-range precision, the Elite 4200 6-24x50 from Bushnell features an illuminated Mil-Dot reticle positioned in the first focal plane. Positioning the reticle in the 1st, or magnifying, plane provides the shooter with the ability to range targets of a known size at every magnification level.
Touted as the 'world's brightest riflescope' by Bushnell - Elite 4200's offer remarkably bright optics with excellent coatings. The lenses are fully multicoated and optimized to deliver an outstanding 95% transmission at 550 nm. The exterior lens surfaces are treated with RainGuard HD - a water repellent coating that minimizes light-scatter from water drops, mist, fog, etc.
This 4200 sports a 30 mm main-tube that's filled with dry nitrogen for all-weather reliability. You can't shoot what you can't see, and who wants to attempt a rooftop-to-street-level shot on a hazy flared-out perp at twilight? So - all-weather reliability means optical clarity in any weather, conditions, situations. You look - you see - you shoot - end of story.
The construction of the 4200 is first-rate. Featuring classic clean styling with a luxurious finish, this optic not only looks good - it's also designed and built to endure the punishment or rigorous field use. The rugged main-tube is machined from a single piece of aluminum alloy, and proven to survive the recoil from 10,000 rounds of .375 H&H magnum.
In practical use - the Elite 4200 lives up to its hype. Every spec and feature comes into play to deliver a bright, clear, and well detailed sight picture. Additionally - there's a side focus knob for eliminating parallax error, and 0.1 mil W&E clicks that work well with the illuminated Mil-Dot system. Finally - the package includes a thread-on sunshade that offers an extra bit of protection against flare, glare, and the inevitable thump-bump in the trunk.
