I am trying to find the best scope with a cost of about $250 for a Marlin 1894cl in .218 caliber.

It would be used on coyotes at about 200 yds. or less. I don't want a long heavy scope on such a lightweight, short rifle, and was thinking a 6x or 2-7x would work. I would appreciate any suggestions on specific models I could take a look at. thank you

You should consider a Leupold Scout scope. They're perfect on the gun you have and are very effective. Leupold makes some but they're just fixed 2.5X. For shotting coyotes at 200 yards it may not be enough power. Here is a picture of Chris's Marlin with the scout scope setup.
