Looking for something to mount on an AR.  Looking for variable power 2-XX power.  The more the magnification then better (my eyes are getting old).

Would like to keep it around the $300 range. 

how's the Burris Short mags compare to the Leupold lightweight scopes?

The Burris is great, only complait is the critical eye relief.  The short mag has a bit of extended eye relief and works great on ar's......add the Ballistic Plex reticle and you have a combo that is hard to beat.

Can't speak for variable scopes but I read an article in an AR-15 magazine of someone who had good luck in Iraq with a Burris fixed power 4X Compact mounted on his AR.
