I have a Leica Magnus 2.-16X56 #4 BDC non-illuminated sitting on a Sako 85 Finnbear 7mmRM. 

I have a line on the same Magnus with illumination but minus the BDC for a good price. I am looking to buy it and replace the NF NXS 5.5-22X50 currently on a Cooper Open Country .300wm. 

Here is the question, is it possible or easily done to take the BDC off the non-illuminated scope and put it on the illuminated one or am I locked into capped turrets on the illuminated optic?

That's a question for Leica.

Just an FYI, I contacted Leica and can send the non-BDC unit to them and they’ll change it to a BDC turret for $400.00. That pretty much negates the savings on the purchase price though. So, it’s hardly worth it. 

I did have a S&B 3-12X50 Klassik pop up NIB for $999 with the L3 reticle and BDC but I’m uncertain as to how they perform in low light. I have two Stratos, a 2.3-13X56 and a 1.5-8X42 that I’m pleased with. How do the Klassik’s compare?

I really like the Swarovski Z8i but it’s more than I want to spend right now.
