I'm looking to buy a 2x-10x  with a maximum of 40 mm objective lens to use on my AR15 for coyotes.  I'm looking at the Bushnell 3200 & Weaver Classic. I'm told that they're comparable and  both come out of the same factory in Japan. I don't want any larger scope than necessary (actual length) as I tend to like things low profile & compact.  I do however want a 2-10 range. If any of you fellas have either and can tell me if one is better than the other I'd appreciate it.

I would at least consider the above scopes. I would prefer a trijicon ACOG  and some can be found on Samplelist at reduced prices.  I really think you need an illuminated optic but I'd settle for reallygood glass like the Zeiss and the Leu FX3.  There is much to be said for a fixed power scope they seem to suffer more abuse than any other.

The BURRIS SixX 2-12X40 might be a viable alternative.

I'm a huge fan of Weaver scopes but I think the 3200 is likely to be a tiny bit better. However I'd save up for this one.
