I did read thru the FAQ on budget scopes, the few that caught my eye seem out to discontinued. I'm looknig for a variable power, something like a 3x9, main intended use is target shooting/plinking and possibly some predator hunting down the road. Lemme hear your scope suggestions!

Weaver Grand Slam series.

Primary Arms I do belive they have on in the $150 range.

I think Vortex or Sightron makes scopes in that ballpark. But not sure. You can try SWFA website to get a ball park market price for optics.

You are other options is to see what pops up in the EE for budget scopes.

Most places sell it for $159 or so.

Under $200, Vortex Diamondback or Burris FFII, follow by the Redfield Revolution.

For ~$150, IMO, stick with the K4 or K6 from Weaver.

Nikon 4-12x40 are on sale now for around $160.

They work well

Redfield revolution, American made. 2-7x32 is $179, that's a great scope for a really good price.

Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40 at your local WalMart for $149.
Nikon 223 in 3x32 at same store for $169.
Center Point Scopes at WalMart also in 3-9x40 and 4-12x40 for around $70. I know the 4-12 has a Illuminated Reticle, not sure of 3-9. Lots of Hunter's around me use them and they drop Deer every Year.
I had one on a 30-06 when they first come out, and glass was pretty good for a cheapo scope, but it got to where it wouldn't hold POI from the recoil. Changed to a Nikon Buckmaster and never looked back, but it's much more expensive than what you're looking for.
