Thanks for all the advice. Trust me when I say, legal is relative.

Shop the price. I bought mine at Academy for under $200.

My first center fire rifle was a Winchester 30-30 and the first thing I did was put a 4x32 fixed power on it. That was a real good set-up. As for brand get the best you can afford, but I wouldn't worry near as much about going with a cheap brand for a fixed power scope.

Gun arrives @ the shop on Tue. Just like all my hunting rifles, I will use the stock @ 25 yards to make sure she's relatively true. Not in a hurry for the scope, but I ain't getting any younger. Naked eyesight @ dusk requires better than what my body will do. When a target is on my property @ 150 yards and in, I have to be 100% certain I can deliver kill shots. I will take my time deciding and everyone's input is appreciated more than you know.

Here is a scope I've recommended on other sites to gents wanting one for a 30-30. Ones that bought it would post later very happy with it. At $120 its a very good bargain and darn good optics. Brand is Nitrex (by Weaver)....same scope under Weaver label as a Grand Slam sells for around $300. Weaver handles the Nitrex warranty.

Thanks. Those are some good looking scopes, but I think I'm gonna stay with Made In America.

The thing you neglected to mention, is what rifle did you buy??

That can make a HUGE difference in what you can put on it...

And I've got a couple Centerpoints, great scopes!!
If you get the 4-16, remember to UNLOCK the locking rings before adjusting the adjusters, or you WILL break them...
lot of newbies tend to make that mistake, leaving the adjusters locked and trying to adjust...strips the adjuster out...
its also why you NEVER buy a scope that's been returned to Walmart...as the lazier ones bring 'em back instead of sending THEIR MISTAKE in for repair
Free repair anyway...great warranty!!

I am getting the Marlin 336c. Now before anybody jumps all over me about Marlin selling out and quality issues, the Marlin 30-30 was my very first hunting rifle. I wish I never sold it, but I did. This is all about nostalgia, a couple more hunting adventures, and then my long range SD option, if necessary. I am leaning toward Redfield. Haven't given up on Weaver. And I hope to shoot a friend's rifle w/ghost sights to see if they will work for me. I appreciate all the ideas everyone.
