If I were you I would put one of two dedicated scout scopes on it: Leupold 2.5x28 or Burris 2.75x20.  I've got the Leupold and I've used the Burris.  Both are good.  Higher magnification scopes for scout setup have a very limited field of view and mandate keeping your non-shooting eye open.  With a low magnification scope between 2x and 3x you can still keep your other eye open for faster target acquisition.

Another alternative is to get a 2x pistol scope, but those are typically set-up to be parallax free at 50 yards instead of 100 yards for dedicated scout scopes.  I have a couple of scout setups and I use a Leupod 2.5x28 and Swift 2x20.  I will probably swap the Swift out for a Burris scout scope.
