    Re: weaver v24 classic vs. bushnell 4200 6-24

    Among the scopes riding my varmint rifles are: Weaver V16 and V24, and Bushnell 4200 4-16x. I don't have a 4200 6-24x yet, but I know some experienced shooters who do and have found the same things. And based on my usage, I would go with the 4200 6-24x on a custom rig, and the V24 or V16 on a humble factory rifle like a Ruger VT. Here are some of my findings:

    V24:
    Loses some image contrast from a little over 20x to 24x.
    Fine crosshair reticle good for varminting beyond 600 yards.
    Medium turret markings are clear, repeatable clicks have clean feel.
    Sunshade NOT included.

    4200 4-16x:
    Clearer optics to the edge.
    Medium turrets have finer complete turn markings and are a little harder for us with presbyopia to read - remedied with a little magnifying glass.
    Sunshade included.

    V16:
    Repeatable medium turrets, but all 3 I've used have sloppy feel.
    Glass is fair, but not quite as good as 4200.
    No sunshade, either.


    To summarize, the V-series is a bust buy on a tighter budget, but the 4200 is money well spent for a more enjoyment. It's one of those situations where you get what you pay for.

    Hope your search is fruitful....danno
