I'm looking to put a fixed power scope on a 16" mid-length. I can't afford an ACOG. My limit is about $300. Are there any good fixed power, compact (I'm flexible here), illuminated (same here)? I think I want something b/w 4x and 8x magnification.
The IOR Valdada 4 x 24 M2 Tactical Scope apparently has really nice glass. See www.valdada.com/vn/ior/03b. They can be had for $324-$350. You will need some 30mm rings. www.csgunworks.com has a special on the Dragunov OD model right now for $270.
