I always try to buy products " Made in the USA" . The job you save might be your own
Hondas are made in the USA!

I try to do that too, most of the time, but it is getting very hard to do.

Soark, So is Polaris. Honda is still a Japanese company. Your American money is going abroad.When will this Honda-Polaris debate end?

F4YG, I agree with you. Almost everything you find is made overseas.It' s worth taking the time to look for " Made in the USA" products.I' m not saying foreign made products aren' t well made,but we need to keep the American' s working.Most of the time we don' t have much choice,when I do my money stays right here in the USA.I know we have gotten off the original topic.I just wanted to put my .02 in.

If it were my money I' d get the Bushnell 3200.

The Bushnell has a one piece tube where as the Nikon has a two piece. The Bushnell also has the rain coating.

In fact when I get done with my rifle I' m probably going to put a 3200 or a 4200 on it. Possibly a Sightron.

I have a few Leopolds, a couple of Monarchs, one 3x9x40 and a 50 mill objective. I also have some Simmons Atec' s and one 3200. The Nikon' s and Leopold' s are great and the last I heard is the Leopold has an unconditional lifetime warranty. But ya know what? I have hunted three seasons with the Atec' s, one on a contender 45-70, one on a .50 cal Encore muzzleloader and they are clear, hold zero, don' t fog up. My 3200 is on my .300 win mag Encore. You know what? It is as clear as the Monarchs and the recoil from the .300 doesn' t bother it a bit.
I agree with the need to use good scopes and all Tasco' s and most other Simmons aren' t good scopes but the 3200 is as clear as any one of my Nikons. The Leopold' s are good but for the money you can' t beat the Atec or the 3200. Everybody has a preference but it is pretty funny how elitist we have become when it comes to rifle scopes. I know for the elitists, they might be able to tell the difference, I don' t know, but I hunt hard, no matter what the weather, and I hunt everywhere, and I hunt until the sun goes down, and paying $500.00 to $1,000 more for a scope is a waste of money and doesn' t put meat on the pole any easier.

I have two Leupolds, when shopping for the glass on my groundhog gun I started looking Leupold. I looked at the Elite 3200 and it was just as bright, clear and crisp as the Leupolds costing $200 more. It' s your money, if you want a quality scope with an extra 1" of eye relief go Leupold, if you want to save $200 go with the 3200 and you won' t be sorry.

This subject has been discussed at the local coffee shop every since i was 10 yrs old[ whats the best optics]. The main thing is buy a brand that you feel number one that you can afford and you feel confident in shooting . There is a web sight called chuckhawk.com that will give you some insight on some fine optics. If you are only going to deer hunt with this rifle than both scopes are a great choice. i own both and find them very good for nonprecison shooting

I' ve been the most impressed with Bushnell Elite 3200 and Sightron SII scopes of the scopes recently tested, with the Bushnell Elite 4200 and Zeiss Conquests top of the pack if you care to invest more pesos.
