8184 Kahles 3-10x50 CL Multizero 51723, Matte finish, 1" tube, plex reticle, side focus, fast focus eye piece, allows you to zero your scope at five different ranges, close to new condition. $1,315.00 $749.95
think 6x42  think 7x50 think 8x56 or think variable and dial it down to those powers or lower at dark.  I also like the IOR glass but any of the top eruopean companies will have good glass probably so good you can not tell the difference between them.

Bushnell, Nikon and Zeiss all make good scopes too with large ofjective lens, 50 or 56 mm if you don`t mind that big of objective on a hunting scope. But the Kahles are a real buy in a high quality scope.

Kahles gives you the 4A and 7A reticles that are heavy and easy to see in low light without being illuminated, also. The glass is excellent and they are rugged.

If you wanted to get a brand new scope, SWFA has a good deal going on right now on the kahles cl 3-9X42 for $700.

http://www.swfa.com/pc-1470-665-kahles-3-9x42-helia-cl-riflescope.aspx

Any of the above mentioned Kahles would be an excellent choice, just decide what power range and objective you want and find one on the sample list.  You can't go wrong with a Kahles, you will love whichever one you go with.

I've decided to go with the Kahles 4X12X52. SWFA has a good price on them right now and it sounds like a decent low light scope. Hopefully I won't be dissapointed!
