Without knowing a bit more about your requirements (AO, fixed power versus variable, power range if variable, hunting, casual target, competition shooting, budget), I would recommend a Clearidge RM 3-9X AO, about 11.5 inches long, 11.9 oz as a best buy at $189. Close focus is 10 yards, and has target knobs. Available in duplex for the hunter/casual target type, and fine for the serious target shooter.I have just built a 10/22 for a light weight off hand shooter. I would like to find something in a compact scope to keep the weight down. I currently am using a red dot but would like some magnification. Most of my shooting with this will be between 25 and 50 yards. Any help woud be appreciated.
There are many other scopes, such as the compact $350 Leupold EFR 3-9X AO.
