     I have a Marlin lever action 30-30 cal. rifle that currently has an old 4x32 tasco scope that has actually held up very well over the years but it is definately lacking in brightness and clarity. I want to buy a new scope and will probably stick with a fixed 4 power scope but would consider a 1-5 or 2-7 power variable. I would like it to be light and short to match the weight balance of the rifle because I like to stalk the brush with it. I was considering a Bushnell Tropy 1.5-4x32 with a cirlce X reticle but I dont know if that would be a good reticle for a rifle or not.
     ANY SUGGESTIONS OR COMMENTS?

Check out the Burris Signature Safari 1.75-5 with Taper Plex reticle.  I've got one on my 45-70 brush gun and love it.  Or, consider a scout mount; great for fast, short-range shots.

The circle plex reticle is awesome in brush, super fast too.

If I were you I'd really consider Burris Compact scopes.  They have a 4x and a 2-7x that would work well for you.

either the bushnell trophy, bushnell elite 4200 1.5-6x36, or leupy VXII 1-4x20, i would personally get the elite, and dont forget about mounts, chances are you have weavers from walmart, or something, invest in a pair of leupold standard rings.bases for your rig, the base is available for 19.95, and the rings are 24.95.

I owned that combo recently. I wasn't that pleased with the Trophy overall but it worked well for the price. For my eyes I needed a little more power but if all of your shots are in close brush the 1.5-4 may be a good choice. I went to a Bausch and Lomb 3000 in 2-7x32 and found the handling to be equal. Good luck.
