Against the trend

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on May 24, 2013
Well I'm going against the trend here. A friend and I bought these scopes so we could reference each other accurately on longer shots with 270 and 300wsm, we were assured they could take the recoil. Unfortunately, neither of them held zero (note they were on brand new brownings). We're contract (and recreational) shooters but bought these for our own gear, mistake. The plastic that holds the windage plates also cracked on one scope, after sitting in a cabinet in a house at about 20 degrees Centigrade. We also carry in heavily padded cases. It was purely down to the scopes. Love the trophy xlt on our 223's, always reliable, but these legends were a let down alright. However, they do carry a warranty which is their savior. Be cautious and if they start to mess up, get a refund/replacement straight away.
Pros: value for money, warranty
Cons: unreliable...
Would recommend: No

A great scope value for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on October 24, 2012
This is a real nice scope and a shame they discontinued it. The glass is comparable to much more expensive scopes, much better than some Nikons and Sightrons Ive looked through. Mil dots are functional and maybe a touch big for serious long distance paper punching. turret tracks nicely and returns to zero with no shift. i bought two of these since I liked the first one so much.
Pros: Looks nice, solid build, really clear glass
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes

Bushnell Legend 5-15x40 Rifle Scope Matte Mil Dot

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, PA Written on March 16, 2010
I expected the optics to be good and they are. I was very impressed with quality of the objective adjustment, even more impressive were the windage and elevation adjustments. These ajustments are on par with high end scpoes costing many times more. This is an impressive scope regardless of price, considering the price it is a great value.
Pros: Better quality than I expected.
Cons: none...
Would recommend: Yes

Tough scope with precision

Great scope for the $

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 21, 2010
Replaced a 3-9x40 "bargain" scope w/this one on my .223. Wanted a bit more reach and better quality for varmint hunting. I did quite a bit of research and comparison before deciding on this Bushnell. First of all, the price was right. Secondly, I do not need a top of the line scope for what I need this rig to do. I just need to hold a zero. So far, this scope has met my expectations. My only complaint is that the windage/elevation adjustments are too soft. Not a definite "click" and it is easy to go 2 or 3 clicks when I want only one. This is not a huge problem, but be aware of it. If not for this, I would have given it a 5 Star rating. Other than this minor inconvenience, the optics are very clear, sight picture is very bright throughout the zoom range and it is holding it's zero. The eye relief and fast focus eyepiece are an added bonus. I have other, more expensive scopes, and so far, this scope is on par with them. Time, and use, will tell if it holds up as well over the long run.
Pros: Bright sight picture. Nice eye relief.
Cons: Windage/elevation adjustments...

bushnell legend 5-15x40 scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on January 8, 2010
I purchased this scope specifically for a .17 HMR. I decided on this scope for 2 primary reasons.(1)This magnification range was pefect for my intended use of the 17hmr and the 5-15x40 was well suited to the 75-150 yard range of this rifle.(2)The very small recoil/compression of this rifle led me to believe that I could use a scope in this quality range for long term outdoor use.So far the scope works great and has had no problems. I have put about 100 rounds through the rifle with this scope at different ranges and have had excellent results. The scope is clear and bright all the way through the magnification range with a generous eye relief.The scope windage/elevation adjusters functioned properly with consistent movment through the entire range.
Pros: very clear,excellent light transmission
Cons: none so far...
Would recommend: Yes

Bushnell Legend 5-15x40 Rifle Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on June 7, 2009
This is a great scope, optics are clear through out the zoom range. The adustable objective and mil dot objective is great for my use, varmit hunting with a variable power PCP air gun. My shot distances range from 10 to 65 yards and the scope maintains its point of impact without having to be re-zeroed each time there is a change.

I have two Bushnell "Trophy" scopes, an RWS, and a Leapers. The Trophy series are good scopes, but if you are willing to spend a little more, buy a Legend series. I will not buy another RWS or Leapers.

The one negative is the windage/elevation knobs are made of a plastic material that is easily split when tightening the clicker index screws. One of mine had been cracked during manufacturing. If it were not for this weakness, my overall rating would have been a 5.

I have the tools, so I machined a set of knurled replacements from solid brass.
Pros: Very clear optics, adjustable objective, wide zoom range
Cons: Windage/elevation knobs are easily damaged if over tightened....
Would recommend: Yes
