Does this really work as described? I'm usually weary of some of the new technology, and am wondering if this will hold up over the years and how effective it really is.

Opinions please. I was thinking of the Bushnell Elite 3200 or a similar Leupold VX-II. I want the most product for my buck. Please let me know what your experiences have been.

 

Thanks,

Chris

The FireFly does work and I would guess that it would last 20 yrs or longer, think of how long the luminescent dial on a wristwatch last.  I think the VX-II is a better scope than the 3200.  The VX-II is the old Vari-XIII.

Bushnell worked on the Firefly for years and made sure it was everything it was cracked up to be before they launched it.  It works exactly as described.  Very impressive in the field and very effective.
