thanks for the recommendation! the only problem i see is that the XLT is almost 13" long. i had the millet dms which i liked, but it was just too long and big for what i wanted. i'm afraid the XLT might be the same issue.
i want the same thing you want.....just smaller....
i'm actually considering a weaver 1-3 which seems to fit the bill for me....no illumination, but measures in at 9" and has a basic reticle. the bushnell 1-4 (non illuninated) was great, but the reticle was a cluttered mess imo. and the illuminated seems it isn't going to be bright enough to do the job i want either. its a shame, cause both were pretty good glass fr the price.
what i want is simple. a compact(ish) low power varible scope that can be effectively used on 1X as "irons" and then the ability to magnify a bit. not as easy to find as it seems.
