Go to WalMart and buy a Centerpoint 3-9, Model CP 3921RG. Mil-dot
style reticle, parallax 35 yds, even comes with rings and flip -up
caps for around $55. The red/green reticle illumination is kind of
a worthless "feature", but it turns off nicely.
Not the finest scope in the world by far--but surprisingly good glass.
I've had one on a Savage MkII FV-SR for a few months. Bought it as
a cheap scope to throw on the gun until I decided which "good" scope
to buy----I thing it will probably stay there.
