Scope?

I have a nifty little Aimpoint H1 on mine. Love the combo. Also look at a Weaver Red Dot. http://www.opticsplanet.com/weaver-micro-red-dot-sight.html

A scope on a Neos? Put a red dot on it and have a ball. The kids I have let shoot mine love it.

Hey there, I would appreciate if y'all could recommend a scope and answer some questions I have...I know NOTHING about scopes

1. Price? Well nothing greater than $1000. But what does $1000 get me that a $200 scope is missing?
2. Use? Just an all around scope. Range. Run n gun. Hunt. Whatever.
3. Rifle? AR 15 (spikes lower BCM upper)
4. Caliber? 5.56 (mostly 55 grain, sometimes 62, rarely 67)
5.Fixed or variable power? Either. Variable seems ideal though.
6. Other requirements? My only requirement is that I want it to be EXTREMELY DURABLE/RELIABLE...I want to buy one scope that will last a lifetime, if that's possible?

Okay, so maybe my answers won't exactly help you recommend a scope for me. So maybe you can answer some questions for me?

1. I see scopes that seem almost identical, but one is $300 and one is $2000. What about the $2000 scope makes it so much better?
2. Is there such thing as good 'overall' scope?
3. What characteristics about a scope would I look for if I were hunting? Or if I were target shooting? Or if I was doing competitions? (Basically my question is, which characteristics about a scope are good for which intended purpose?)

I want to thank you all in advance for helping because I KNOW this is a very in depth question...
Maybe y'all could point me towards a sticky or thread or even a website where I could read up on all this stuff...other than just googling for a few weeks.
Thanks.

I dunno bout run and gun but would fit all your other criteria.


2000 scope is probably going to be the little things like crystal clear sight picture at max magnification , superior low light transmission , maybe illuminated reticle , true " drop it on concrete " shockproof , ofcourse the brand name .

But the scope I posted is good. Leupold is a solid built scope , excellent light transmission , great optics. Every thing you want .

It's just hard to get a scope you can run and gun with and hunt and have it excel at both . Or maybe I just don't know the scope you're describing.

What distances will you be shooting at?
Short to medium 0 to 300 1-4x
Medium to long 100 to 500 3-9x
Leupold makes a solid scope in both and makes scopes dedicated to the AR.

I dont totally understand what all the numbers mean. Tasco 3-9 x 40 Rifle Scope with Rings.

3-9 is the zoom range.
40 (mm) is the lens opening?

Im low budget. What do you get when buying something like this:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Tasco-3-9-x-50-Rifle-Scope-with-Rings-Black/21270188?findingMethod=rr

My shooting will never amount to much other than targets and limited to 300 yards or less.

This is the rifle the scope will be used. It is a .308 Western Field Mauser Action.

How do the scopes mount on this type of rifle? Not clear on how the scope attaches to the rifle. Does it use the small holes seen in this image?
