I have not bought a new scope in 20 years so please bear with me.........I have a Armalite 180B and I want to put a compact, fixed power on it,a 2X or 4X. I keep this rifle on my property and in the trunk of my car for varmit control, target shooting and personal protection.  My shots are rarely over 100 yards and it will be used in extreme cold.  My top priority is ruggedness and reliablilty.  I have looked at Leupold, Burris, IOR, Weaver, but I want the best scope for my money ( under $400)......Any experiences with this type of scope along with brand names, will be very much appreciated.   FS

Burris & IOR build a very good fixed power scope.  They are also reasonably priced for the quality.  Those are the first scopes I'd consider...

IOR would be my vote, or Kahles.
