Hey all,

I have an RRA 16" flattop and currently have an EOtech mounted on it but have been toying with the idea of mounting a decent riflescope for general plinking.  What would you recommend in the way of scopes and methods of mounting that would allow fairly quick switching between the scope and the EOtech?  I'm not looking for the best scope on the market and would like to keep cost reasonable.

I've got just the scope...

Seriously, though...you would be well served with any quality 4x or 6x.  Fixed power scopes are relatively inexpensive and the lower powers are great for plinking out to 200 yards or so.  I was busting rocks at 100 yards with ease last weekend with the above scope.

Since we are throwing in shameless plugs I have a Redfield Illuminator 3-9x42mm scope I will sell for $200 NIB.  I costs $420 on SWFA.com and its got excellent low light capability and is about the best bargain you will find for the money.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the plugs.  I'm not quite ready for a scope just yet or I'd take you up on those offers but I'm putting out the feelers now so that when I'm ready I can jump on one.  Looking to stay in the $200-$250 range if possible.

The best scope in that price range is the Weaver Grand Slam.  They go for $250 from [url]www.swfa.com[/url].  It is in the same quality range as some much more expensive scopes.

Other good scopes for the money are the Nikon Monarch and Bushnell Elite 4200, but they cost a little more.

A good mount would be the one-piece from Armalite for $89.
