    Compact, cheap vari power scope

    Looking for a cheap, compact scope, perhaps 2-7x32 or similar, to fit to a nice little BRNO Fox .222. Donít mind if itís a little older, as long as it functions ok and the glass is clear. Thank you.

    Thank you, a little more than I can afford currently though. Budget is probably up to $200

    I completely agree, sadly my budget doesn’t right now! I notice there doesn’t seem to be as many smaller scopes around now, and Leupys seem to have gotten a lot more expensive since I last looked. I do rate them though, have a VX3 on my other rifle, very nice.

    Great minds think alike, 8 have an old tasco 4x32 on it right now, hoping to get to the farm at the weekend and see if it actually shoots, if it does, then it’ll get a nicer scope and the rifle will get a trip to the gunsmith to re blue...

    Weaver Classic 4x36 Japanese, plex reticle. Surprisingly bright and crisp, mint. Surplus to requirements but always waver when it’s time to clear out because it’s optically so good. But I’m told I have too many toys...

    Thank you both for the suggestions, I’m kind of set on 2-7 or very similar, I’ve owned a weaver 2-7 before and it was a lovely little scope, it’s a shame they’re not making them anymore.
