    definately do them in 3x9x40....with mil dot ..not sure re firedot.
    simple is good.
    Yeah they used to do a 2-7x33 vxr with firedot. Don’t think they make them any more but occasionally come up for sale

    I found my dream scope in the VX5. Price is also part of the equation.

    Some interesting suggestions from all so far, and appreciated.
    Now; I do have a vx5hd 2-10*42 firedot and also a vxr 3-9 patrol but cannot get either of them as low as the vx3 2.5-8*36 ; well not with the variety of 30mm rings I have tried so far at least. I will do some very careful measurements of bolt lever clearance tomorrow because while a 30mm tube ( none or small objective end diameter) would not be a problem with most 1-8x scopes, the ocular / eyepiece will be. From the bits I've looked at tonight, even the new vx freedom 3-9*42 illume might be a contender with small obj and 41mm 1.63" ocular bell ! Anyhoo I will do measurement and also check out the suggestions made so far. The leupold ar mod1 illum tmr and 1" tube would be ideal but they don't make them any more.

    I understand, the 2.5-8x VX3i is what I have on my hunting rifle, was in extra low talleys on the SAUM now in Low Talleys on the Kimber
    the VX6HD I brought originally has ended up on the Gong Guns. VX3i is light, simple and just plain works

    After using a fire dot I would feel naked without it.

    I have also seen a nice Delta scope but can't find price of NZ agent. Also discovered Weaver are now out of the scope business.

    They are not too common in NZ yet. NZ Ammo do list some scopes so they could possibly price it up. I've not used one but reviews suggest they are in the alpha glass bracket. I'm guessing that's going to be in the same price range too.
