I am looking for a good 3x9 scope for my ar-15 under $200.00. There are so many out  there it is mind boggling.
Any  suggestions would be greatly appreciated
Thanks

That is one of the better ones. I have several of these and I love them.
 
 I would also look at the new Nikon Prostaff.

Skylar-
Have you looked at any of the Kruger K4s there at the shop, or have any feedback on them?

Alan I haven't.  Right now, the one that is in your link is sold out. If I had it, I was going to try and go look through it.
 
Sorry

Honestly, I haven't heard anyting.  I don't get a lot of calls about Kruger.
 
Wish I could help shed some light on these, but I can't honestly tell you.

Hello sam31- sorry for the thread highjack...
Kruger makes really nice binoculars and I though that they might have a scope that fits your needs, but as you can see, not much is known about them.

Nikon prostaff would be a great choice.  I've had multiple nikon scopes and they have never let me down, extremely durable and water/fog proof.  This is most likely the best buy for your buck.

Diamondback, or the Burris FFII would be my choice in that price range.
