Bushnell Legend Mil Dot Scope

If you consider the Elite scopes to be the premium Bushnell product, then the Legend series is the top of the standard Bushnell line. Below the Legend line are the Trophy, Banner, and Sportsman lines.

While lacking some of the niceties of the upscale Elite 3200 scopes, the Legend line manages to incorporate a number of worthwhile features. For example, they are built on anodized aluminum alloy tubes, boast fully multi-coated optics and 91% light transmission, offer a reasonable 3.5" eye relief, wide field of view, and come with a matte black finish. Legend riflescopes are alleged to be shockproof, waterproof, and fogproof. They are sealed and dry Nitrogen filled. To make them user friendly there are fingertip windage and elevation adjustments, and a Euro-style fast focus eyepiece.

For identification, "Legend" is stamped in large letters around the ocular bell and "Bushnell Legend" appears in smaller letters in gold on a band around the front of the objective lens and also on the left side of the adjustment turrets. There is a big "B" in a ring, also in gold, on the right turret adjustment cap. No one, given a good look, is liable to mistake this scope for anything else.

The Legend scopes are assembled in the Philippines, where some good scopes are being made these days. Included in the Bushnell box, along with the scope, are scope caps and paperwork. The latter includes product registration cards (this can also be done online at: a written warrantee, a rather rudimentary instruction sheet, and an interesting "Shim Guide.".

The latter describes how to shim the front or rear scope bases, if necessary, to at least crudely align the scope with the rifle's bore. I found this kind of interesting, as the internal adjustment range of the Legend scopes generally seems to be adequate. I would not think that mount shims would ordinarily be necessary, at least if the user chooses a high quality mount base and rings.
