I have a backup Savage Mark II that I need a cheap (under $50) scope for when the girlfriend goes shooting with me and when I loan it to hunting buddies. I prefer 4-12 for targets and don't want to spend a ton cause its not my primary rifle.

I kept seeing the Nikko Sterling scopes on Howa rifles and there was certain things I like about it. Ended up ordering one, a 4-16 delivered to my door was I think $67. I really like the scope, not as crystal clear as a $3-400 scope but extremely good for the money. Here is a post I did on it, for just a little bit more than $50 you get a lot of scope.

I found a Simmons Prosport 4-12 AO for under $50 and my buddy has a Simmons Prosport 3-9 AO on his squirrel gun and loves it. Any thoughts on the Simmons?

Id go for a Simmons in that price range. Have several of them on kid rifles. They are surprisingly clear and tough enough to be loaned out on a 22 that will likely be dropped. You can probably get the scope and rings for $50 if you wait for a sale. The 3-9 was recently on sale for $20.

I'll agree on the Simmons scopes,,,

I'll agree on the Simmons scopes,,,
I have two rifles with the 3-9 mounted.

They are very adequate and have held zero for years now.

My Nikon scopes are clearly nicer,,,
But they also cost lots more than the $39.95 I spent on the Simmons scopes.
