I was rummaging through my gun safe and came across this Bushnell Elite 6500 1.25-8x32mm. Model 651832M Even though it looks pristine I know I must have used it at some point because the box is opened. I tried to find out about it but it's been discontinued. So I have no idea as to its worth or quality. It seems to be a pretty good scope. Does anyone have any idea what the scope is worth in LNIB condition? Any comments on quality and whether I should sell it or keep it until I find another rifle to mount it on. Thanks

MSRP in 2009 was $719. I’d find a gun to put under it!

Good luck with the sale, W8. I'm looking for something very similar to that, roughly a 1-8 x32, for my 6.8. Recently while hog hunting, it was apparent to me I needed (or would lke) something lower than 3x on the low end. But I want a larger objective than the 24-28 that comes on most of the 1-X tactical scopes. However, my budget is only around 150-200 and I think you should be thinking 300-400 minimum as a starting point.
