Greetings all.

New guy here.  I have been reading this site for a while researching a scope that

would fit my limited needs.  Lots of great knowledge here and I am hoping to tap into it.

I have been looking for a low cost ($300 or so) scope.  Will be mounting on my DSArms SA58C.

Most of the rifles in my battery are short.  Because of this, I was originally wanting to stick with a shorter scope, i.e. Burris 2-7x35 Fullfield II Tactical Rifle Scope or Grand Slam. Don't want this to limit my choices.

Have been considering:
Burris 2-7x35 Fullfield II Tactical Rifle Scope
Burris 3-9x40 Fullfield II Tactical Rifle Scope
SuperSniper 10x42
Bushnell 3200 series
Weaver 1.5-5x32 Grand Slam Rifle Scope
Nikon Buckmaster or Monarch, if I can get a good price

I prefer the quick adjustable turrets. Was planning on using Burris Tactical Mounts, but am not sure what would be the best height for each. 

Thanks,

would recommend you look at the IOR 3x, leo 1.5x5 SPR, or even the ior med. variables, with this quality of a rifle.

Just some thoughts

word has it that Nikon's CS is pure sh!t
Weaver is now making their scopes in the Philippines and aren't as good as when they were in Japan so you might want to get an older Grand Slam. I think Meade bought them and Simmons a bit ago.

The Bushnell 10x40 is a great little scope and much shorter than the SS.  To my eyes they have comparable glass quality.  Others on here, as well as some of the 1000yd shooters at my club, swear by the SS.

I find that the images in the Bushnell are much clearer than from the Fullfield II.

Just my 2 cents.

I appreciate the information. 

The purchase of a scope has so many variables that it makes the decision to purchase quite difficult. 

This is going to be the first purchase of 3 scopes scopes to outfit my rifles.
