My friend has poor eyesite and needs to find a scope that will allow around 24 power magnification but at a reasonable cost. He hunts about twice a year and does not want to drop a grand on a scope at this time.

Any sugestions would be greatly appreciated.

Depending on what his poor eyesite is due to, i.e. macular degeneration, cataracts or a lense problem, the magnification in the scope will not help his problem at all.  The less expensive a scope is, in general, the worse it is optically at higher magnifications and alot of times becomes useless at say 24 power with low resolution and a difficult to find exit pupil.  Please elaborate on what type of eye problem he has, although, it probably will not make a difference.  If he is intent on a 24 power scope and not spending a grand, then I would suggest:
426244M Bushnell 6-24x40 Elite 4200 Rifle Scope Bushnell 6-24x40 Elite 4200 Rifle Scope
