Good scope under $200? Check Natchez for what Nitrex tr1 scopes they have left. Discontinued brand, but essentially a Weaver Grand Slam and box will have Nitrex by Weaver on it. Japanese made and good optics in it. Last time I checked Natchez, ones left were priced under $140.
Also at Natchez, prices reduced on the Weaver aspherical lens 40/44 models. Priced $140 or less. Philippine made, very decent optics.
I've had good luck and been satisfied with the two newer model BSA scopes, the Majestic DX Hunter (own 3) and the Gold Star (OWN 2). Grafs and Sons has some of them on sale last time I checked for a lot lower price than I first paid for mine. Both are side focus on higher power ones. Decent glass and etc. on both models.
