What is the OT's opinion on this?  What is the best 3x9 scope available in GLOSS finish for under $250.  I have researched the 3200, Fullfield II, and Sightron SI.  Is there anything else available (worth having) that meets my criteria? 
 
It seems most scope manufacturers have decided that gloss is out even though the firearms makers still produce gloss finish rifles.  Leupold is about the only one that has a large selection of gloss finish scopes.  Most of the others have a token 1 or 2 gloss finsh scopes in their product lines.
 
Pardon my rant and thanks in advance.
 
Chris

I think its just those and the Leupolds like you said, but the VX-II being over $250 and the VX-1 not being as good as the others...I tried a little 10 minute search and nothing turns up besides what you got already.
 
Maybe you can find out what it costs and takes to make a Matte scope into a Gloss one.  That would be interesting to see....perhaps its just a shiny clear coat.

The Swift could be what you are looking for. There are not many manufactures making gloss scopes any more.

While you can buy a scope under 250 and you can buy a gloss finish scope you cant buy the best of anything for under 250 as far as scopes.   Gloss is a slicker finish than matte and does not stay put in the rings as well but here is something in gloss
10708 Bushnell 3-9x38 Sportview 743938, Gloss finish, plex reticle, 1" tube, new in box never mounted   $39.95

Also my experience with gloss scopes is the finish is not as durable.  I have on old Redfield that over time has worn the finish down from being carried in cases, not so with the matt scopes
