Looking for a small, light, high quality scope for a CZ452 American 16. 3-9, 2-7, or a fixed 6x would be great. I had a Leupold http://swfa.com/Leupold-3-9x33-VX-II-Rimfire-EFR-Riflescope-P3277.aspx on my CZ Varmint and it was nice. What other options are out there?

The 2-7 Leo is nice as are the 2-7 and 3-9 Weavers. The 3-9 Weaver has AO.

2-7 vortex viper

i have the 2-7 weaver and it's pretty nice, and has held up to a 45-70 so far, but weaver's CS is not very good. vortex's CS is bad ass.

I saw that one. Looks interesting. Anyone have any experience with this scope? Seems to have everything I'm looking for. Size, weight, mag range, price. Anything better in that price range?

The Weaver RV7 is the choice for a lightweight variable, but I'm a fan of the Weaver RV9, as it has an AO for short range shots, and a clear parallax free view at any range, yet still isn't very heavy. Both have pretty good glass, though only multicoated. The RV9 runs around $230, so a bit more than the RV7. The only downsides to both Weavers are the coin adjustments.
 
The Timberline is a good scope (fully multicoated), but 14x gets awfully dim in a 32mm objective. Still, it's a lot of power in a small scope if you have adequate daylight and don't mind the exit pupil. It probably beats the similar, often touted Mueller offering for glass quality, though at a higher price. It also weighs less, though both scopes are a bit heavier than any of the 2-7x or 3-9x models.

Leupold also has the 3-9x 33mm EFR model with AO. If you're big on the Leupold warranty and eyebox, that's an option that improves over the older Leupold rimfire models. It's a dressed up VXII basically, but otherwise comparable to the RV9 (both of them are only multicoated).

Sightron has an S1 rimfire 3-9x model that's priced around the Weaver RV7, but arguably has slightly inferior glass. It does have decent finger adjustments however, and Sightron has an excellent warranty.

The king of all compact rimfire scopes might be the SII Big Sky rimfire 3-9x 36mm AO model. You pay for it, but by all accounts it's a darn good scope with excellent glass.

Vortex has the 2-7x Diamondback model, but it's probably a bit heavy for a 2-7x variable. You trade better glass and adjustments than the Weaver RV7 for extra weight and cost. It weights more than the Weaver RV9 even.

Thanks everyone. I decide to give the Nikon Prostaff Rimfire 3-9x40 a shot. Let you know how I like it when iy comes in. A little bigger and heavier than I planned, but not much.
