For my first post, I ask a simple question...
 
I have rifles and optics from low end to high end; however, this time, it's simple.
 
For my birthday, my wife and I agreed that a $200 budget would would be a wise price point.  She is simply going to choose from the advice received here and order from SWFA a riflescope costing less than about $200- $225.
 
I could have use for just about anything from a red dot plinker for an AR to the best generic 3x9 to a low power variable for my grandfather's Savage 340 bolt action 30/30 I inherited... several hunting rifles from a .357 lever action trapper or a tacticool 10/22 and a Rem 700 30/06 that AI would have as a loaner deer rifle.
 
What is the best you can do for $200?  Quality, durability, clarity, repeatability.  Fixed or variable.  Fixed should be 4x or less.  Variables need not go above 12x.
 
 
Weaver Classic V 3x9, Bushnell 3200 3x9 and Burris FFII 3x9 are my guesses, but I might  be more interested in something "different", and I am willing to take a risk.
 
Thanks for your attention!

the nikon team primos would fit your budget for $220

otherwise maybe check www.samplelist.com for some of swfa's deals.
i know there is a bushnell elite 4200 3x9 on there right now for $199 that would be a great scope for $200 even if its used. i have one on my .375H&H magnum

I'll do rings separately, if I don't already have them.  Around 200 bucks is an arbitrary budget we agreed to.  I would go higher if I had a real need and want .
 
Thanks for the replies.
