Hi all, well need some advise here.  I've made a couple posts about sy=ubjects close to this one.  But I guess I'll just cut to the chase here.
 
I have a Remington Model 7 in 7mm-08 and I'd like to mount a good quality lightweight 2x7 scope on it. 
 
So............What brand and/or model would you recommend in the $150 to $200 range?
 
A Weaver Classic V was suggested, looks good.  Your thoughts?
 
Thanks so much!!  This forum has been an excellent source of information, and also the folks have been real kind in their responses.  Thanks all!!
 
All the best!
 
Greg

I have the same rifle and for years had a smaller Simmons mounted on it, which finally fogged up.  I replaced it with a Sightron S1 3-9x40 and honestly, the scope is a little too big so I'm probably going to replace it.  A 36mm (if I could find one) would be about perfect, size-wise.  a 2-7 would be great, or maybe a fixed 6x.  I'll be curious to see what comes up on this thread.

Burris has a little 2-7x35 (Fullfield II) for $189 that's fully multi-coated and has a lifetime warranty that looks pretty decent.  I've used their Signature Select scopes and was pretty happy, I'm not sure how the Fullfield II line stacks up.

Huh, I guess Leupold makes a nice 6x36 scope that looks like it might fit the bill for me @ $279.  I wonder how much an unused Sightron S1 would get on trade in...  :-)

Sorry to wander off you here, but seriously if you are not fixed on a variable, look at the 6x36.  What a great scope for that gun.

Hi, I also had the same Sightron scope on mine!!  Small world.  Anyway, I thought the same thing about it - heavy!  But a very good scope.   I then mounted my Leupold VX-II 2x7 Ultralight on it.  Great combo.
 
I just bought a Ruger M77 Ultralight and I'm going to mount the Leupold on it.  So I need a good scope on my Model 7 which will be my backup gun.
 
BTW, here's a couple pics of my new Ruger:
 
 
Guess I'm a proud papa on this gun!
 
Anyway, thanks and keep the suggestions coming!!
 
All the best!

I seem to hear nothing but good about the Nikon Prostaff and Buckmaster which are in the price range you listed. Personally I'd go with a Leupold Rifleman or VX-I or Bushnell 3200 since Leupolds seem to always be good and I've had very good luck with the Bushnell 3200/4200 scopes on my rifles.
 
Leupolds are also very lightweight which is good on your M7

My brother brought me his model 7 in 7mm 08 to work up some loads for it. He has a 2x7x40 Swift Premier on it it seems to be just the right size for the rifle and was surprisingly clear and bright when looking through it. The scope has stood Him for over two years so they must be tough.

I've nothing but good luck with Bushnell 3200 2x7's on 12 ga slug guns ,a 30/30 , and Muzzleloaders ... If they can handle the slug gun abuse . gotta be tough.. The rainguard is nice to have also .
 
 
That being said, going a bit outside your budget, my model seven 308 wears a Leupold 2.5-8 and it's just about ideal ..

Hi, I got the rifle from John Boyd at Quality Arms.  Great guy to deal with a real pro.  He sent me the pics prior to me buying it.  I should have the rifle in my hands next Tuesday.
 
Thanks for the kind words!
 
All the best!
 
Greg

WOW, Greg!  Is that the factory wood or did someone restock that rifle and use the Ruger checkering pattern, grip cap, and buttpad?

I am also looking for a moderate priced 2x7 scope for my Remington Mountain Rifle in 7mm/08. Weight and size are a consideration on this small, handy, rifle.
I also thought the Burris 2x7 looked like a good deal but I have been reading a few reports of the current fullfield line not returning to zero. 
 
Below is a picture of my Mountain Rifle which I picked up for $600.  This rifle in 7mm/08 is my favorite for hunting Coastal Blacktail deer.

Hi, this rifle was made for Talo in 2008.  They only made 200 of them.  The gun itself is a M77 MkII Ultralight in .308.  The wood is circassian walnut that Ruger had "extra" from some other projects.  Talo purchased them and had Ruger make them up.  Here's a link that explains more:
 
 
Hope this helps.
 
All the best!

Welcome to OT, Pacific Fisher!

That's a nice looking rifle too, with beautiful wood figure in the buttstock!  7mm-08 is my favorite chambering for deer!
