Rifle scope recommendations requested
 
I would like some inputs on the best rifle scopes with variable power capability that are available in under 200$ range. I have been away from that market for a long time. Thanks.

I haven't tried every scope on the market but I use the one in the link below for my nighttime hunting. It gets banged around in the bed of a truck to and from hunting spots, up and down ladders, through heavy cover while stalking, and I have not had a problem. Good clear views, red/green ranged reticle, priced right. I use a PEPR mount.

The secret to optics is to spend the money once. Buy a decent optic and just deal with the cost as opposed to trying a cheap one and replacing it multiple times. Check opticsplanet.com

What type of Rifle?? What will it be used for??

For a decent overall scope I would suggest: http://www.opticsplanet.com/weaver-rifle-scopes-v10-10x38.html

Not the site, the scope.

Check out nikon and Burris. Great scopes. 3x9 are generally under 200 for both brands

There are no decent scopes under $200.

The Nikon and Burris offerings are their "seconds." Their "Blue Light Special" line.

"decent"is completely subjective. There are riflescopes under $200 that can perform adequately for many applications.

"seconds" .... that some sort of "fact" you can back up just opinion?

as far a "blue light special", yes they are budget priced scopes that do not have the same performance as higher priced optics but that doesn't mean they are not serviceable.

I just purchased and am waiting for UTG 4x30 Compact CQB scope. Not expensive and probably not much, but am willing to play with what I can get for the time being.

I'm new around here, but thought I'd chime in on this one... Just this morning I purchased a Redfield Revenge 2-7x34. I don't have it in-hand yet, but it will be here Wednesday and I will update with my initial thoughts. Also, if you buy a Redfield Revenge or Revolution scope between now and December 31, 2012, you get a $30 mail-in-rebate. I paid $139 with free shipping for the scope from Amazon and with the rebate, it comes down to $109. A lifetime warranty only adds to the value, in my opinion.

I've never shot a Redfield scope before, but I understand they have great rapport with shooters. Someone much wiser than me may want to weigh in.

i just dont see how you could think that. both companies offer lifetime warranties. and both have clear, crisp picture. ive had my nikon on 2 different rifles and its worked great. never lost zero. they are by far one of the best optics for the price range.. sure a swarvoski, or zuess is better. but then again they cost at least 500 and up.
