Hello!

I'd like to spend around $150 for a fixed 4x scope.

I will be deer hunting in Western Oregon forest.

So, with this in mind, please recommend a brand and model for me.

I have the mount taken care of; if I have to spend more than $200 to get a "good" scope it will have to wait until next year.

Thanks for you input!

Mike

I am in the same boat as you Mike. Someone recommended this scope to me and It is probably what I will buy. SWFA has a good price on it also.

Another scope that uses good glass and has a good reputation here is the http://www.swfa.com/pc-10607-1514-sightron-4x32-sii-riflescope.aspx. For a $175 it is going to be solid and durable.

If you are hunting in the coastal range, I would recommend you take a look at a low power variable.  a 1.25-4.   I spent some time up there hiking and shooting last summer, and the undergrowth seemed very dense, and I wonder if a fixed 4x would be too much in some scenarios.
 
What type of gun will you be putting it on?

I have a Russian SKS.
I was reluctant to bring this up tho, I didn't want to make this thread about "pro" or "con" SKS scoping.

I tried for years to shoot with open sights and never enjoyed it. After shooting with a scope I don't want to use any other method of sighting.

Thanks again for everyone's input.
I really respect this board.

Mike

I didn't know these were still around. Definitely a top choice. It will be a bit larger on top of the SKS, though.

        Problems! Don't remember any problems!  Anyway,the Sightron ll 4x is a GOOD scope optically from what I've read and heard but is a compact scope. Make sure your outside to outside ring distance is MORE than 4.4". Some rifles have no problems such as the Ruger No1 and I reckon the AR style rifles. Of course there's all those extension things to make almost anything fit. Just a heads up. Someone mentioned low range variables. GOOD option to!
