So i ordered the Bushnell elite 3200 scope its 10x40 with mildots.
I already ordered a high rise mount from RRA in 30mm so I could use my Supersniper scope that is made for 30mm rings.

If the Bushnell is 1 inch then i gota order some 1 inch rings..

Yep. Leupold rings work well. I prefer the quick detach kind.

Is this for an AR? You might need a riser. If so the RRA mount with rings will work. I use the Yankee Hills riser with Leupold rings.

the link above shows you the rings.
its a rise mount with rings built in.
for 50$ its nice!

The problem is that I searched on the net and nowhere does it say Bushnell scopes are 1 inch, reason why i made this thread to confirm.

Well the original plan was just to swap out my supersniper scope on my Savage 10FLP.

It was a impulse buy for the Bushnell thats all haha.

That's right. The 3200 is 1" though. Both mine are 1".

I like it. Great scope for the money. I have 2. One on a lever gun and another on a basic RRA upper AR which I abuse the heck out of.

I won't put it on a long range or a bench gun (at least long term).

Depends on what you are doing with it. For shooting past 200yd I'd get a higher end scope.

The Bushnell 3200 10x40 is perfectly fine beyond 200 yards.

The scope is repeatable and the image quality is good.

If anyone has issues with it beyond 200 yards, it's not the optics. It's most likely the shooter.

A good shooter is good with irons. Some prefer higher magnification past 200 yd.

For what? Selling Leapers products? :rolleyes: Business must not be doing so well since you seem to be spending most of your time trolling.

One warning.
Both of you KNOCK IT OFF!

The next snide comment or little jab I see earns the one doing it a ban.

Is this clear?

Emailed RRA, they told me the 30 mm is backordered for 1-2 months!! I wish they would have told me!! anyways I ended up switching it out for the 1 inch and should get it this week i hope.

Is there any pros and cons between 30mm and 1 inch scopes?

just found the answers

RRA is not great at dealing with end users. Try getting your RRA products from Wes of ten percent or Riflegear or one of the other sponsors. These guys don't sell things they don't have in stock. I never deal with RRA directly anymore. Looks like Wes is sold out of the RRA mount. Riflegear has the Armalite mount in stock but it is a bit more expensive (around $90).

I did my searching and that was why i settled ordering directly from RRA.

their price is 48$ while some sites were charging 60+

I dont understand why they would have a web store if they would have crappy customer service skills. Kind of like that shop in Vacaville.

They sell in bulk to dealers. Kind of like Century arms. Selling to individuals is not what they do best.

Anyone tried the Larue Tactical SPR / M4 Scope Mount QD LT-104 with these scopes? Is it worth the price? Thoughts in comparison to the other mounts listed?
