I haven't looked for the Bushnell Elite (old B&L brand) but I've bought several older Burris scopes on Ebay. Burris used to make a stop at every point from 1x to 7x (or 9x or 12x?). Why they stopped is beyond me. I reckon everybody wants a variable these days. Their 1-4x was also a good one.

Bought a new old stock Leupold 2x just yesterday. Probably go in place of the Burris 2x on my FA .454 for an added measure of insurance.

Few sold on Accurate shooter in the last week. I would keep an eye out there.

There is some other nice EER scopes on there now reasonable.

Ken Lewis had a pile of new Leupold stuff.

I would also look at Burris' offerings. The clarity of my Burris scopes is quite good.

I haven't been shooting Revolvers with scopes a long time but I started with my Ruger Super Blackhawk Hunter in 45LC. I put a Burris 2x7 on it and after about a year, I couldn't remember using more than 4x on it, even shooting targets. I found a like new Leupold 2x on a Ruger MKII and bought it. I put it on the Ruger and have been using it for at least 8 years and never felt I needed more where I hunt in OK. I just purchased a Ruger Super Blackhawk Hunter in 44 Mag from Mark Hampton recently and put a Leupold 4x on it because I had it. I'm carrying it right now for our Holiday Antlerless season. It is almost too much from my pop up blind in a couple of places I hunt in the timber but I like it because it is so clear. I have one Simmons older Gold Medal I purchased to put on my Encore 460 but talked myself into a Red Dot. I will soon get another barrel or revolver for the Gold Medal scope. Thats how I justify getting barrels. Get scope and then need barrel for it.
I have 6 Burris 3x12's and 2 2x7 scopes and have never had one issue with them. And the new ones are so clear it is amazing. Burris even made some good 4x scopes but I think they only make 2x , 2x7 and 3x12 now. I have looked through the 2x and they are very clear and next Spring, I'm getting one of them for my Ruger MKII , Competition 22 for hunting tree rats and plinking. You can't beat the warranty on the Burris scopes.
Lifetime. I bought a 257JDJ with one of the oldest 3x12, regular reticles I had ever seen. It was a little foggy and the cross hairs seemed to move. I called them, they sent me a return authorization ticket and I mailed it to them for rebuild and I sent the $60 for a ballistic Plex reticle they will install. A month later I got a new, Burris, 3x12 Ballistic Plex , matte blue scope in the mail with a note the other was not cost effective to repair so here you are, a new scope, good shooting.
Good luck with your
Mike
