Sometime in the next couple of months, I'm putting together a 20" AR-15 that I'd like to use with a fairly compact 3x-9x (or so) scope.   The main issue I have with the MR/T is the short eye relief and the price tag. I may decide to live with those 2 negatives, but I was hoping to find some alternatives before I bite the bullet and spend $800.

My wish list in order of priority:

1) Rugged
2) 12" long or less
3) 16oz or less
4) Target knobs
5) no more than 3x min to no less than 7x max
6) 3.5" or more eye relief at max magnification
7) Price under $400

I found the Burris Compact, but the only one you have listed with target knobs is a 4x-12x, and I'd really like no more than 3x on the low side.

No, I didn't. That's exactly what I'm looking for. For some reason I thought it was a big scope
