I got to thinking we could use some threads that discuss users opinions on scopes in different price brackets. I'll post different price levels for each thread.
We'll start off with all tactical scopes UNDER $1000 but not lower than $500. Let's keep the discussion to only those scopes that fall under that price point and are low variable power (ie. 1-3-4x etc). This is a price range that most people fall under, especially these days with the economy being pretty stiff and money tight.
If you don't have any experience with a certain optic, please don't pass judgement as i'm really looking to make these threads based on first handle knowledge for everyone who passes through and wants to get some insight on tactical scopes. At the very least you should have looked through a scope to have a legit opinion.
Please keep everything civil and friendly, as i'm sure opinions will vary.
Thanks, and let's start the discussions! Big Grin

About to come out:  SWFA SS 1-6x24 (if it ends up being less than a grand) would have to be at the top of the list.  I just played with a couple of pre-production models and like them.

Currently available: GRSC 1-6x24, assuming this is going and a 223 rifle. 

A little less money: Weaver Tactical 1-5x24 is very respectable.

If you are not looking at fancy reticles and simply want a visible SFP reticle with a well though out illumination system: Leupold VX-6 1-6x24.

To me, the TR24 with the red triangle is still one of the best overall 1-4s
I haven't found nearly as fast for close in work
downside is the lack of a ranging reticle for longer range but that can be worked around

From a purely tactical standpoint I would go with a SS 1-4 - dount reticle - capped turrents.  When the 1-6 comes out that will replace it.
 
The Trijicon is a great little scope also, put a few hold marks in that post and it would take it to a new level.
