Got my son a Marlin X7 in .308, was looking for best scope under $200. Have used Leupold's before and am leaning that way. Would like other opinions please.

I have a Vortex Diamondback and I like it. Cameraland has it for 200, could probably get a demo cheaper.

Minox zv3 gets great reviews in that price range. And Nikon Prostaff is always a solid option.

Camaraland had the Minox ZV3 open box for $139 ay would upgrade to new in box if you asked. Not sure if it is still going on, but might be wortha a call.

I picked up a very lightly used Leupold VX1 4-12x40 for $218. It's pretty stellar

The new Redfield scopes are made by Leopold.

The 3-9X or 2-7X Redfield Revolution are very nice scopes for the price. Both are $199 at optics planet.

If they are still around the SIGHTRON S1 or SI series is very hard to beat. I shoot lots at dusk/just after and it was every bit as nice as a $500 Zeiss with my eyes!

Kind of depends on what you're gunna' use it for. I change my opinions as to which scope is best, quite often...

As mentioned above, Vortex Diamondbacks offer a lot of bang for the buck. recently, I've really been liking their Diamondback HP Series. They're Diamondbacks, with Viper Glass. They weigh in at $50-100 over your price range, but CameraLand NY often has like-new demo units, for the amount you're looking to spend (again, as mentioned above).

I havd a couple of the 2-28x32, and love them so far.

I don't think that there is much difference in the glass at that price. I'd personally shop for warranties.

I won one of these from Cameraland's monthly drawing and am very impressed with the glass. I've got it mounted but haven't got around to sighting it in yet....

Does it have to be variable power? I've taken more game with an old Weaver 4x than probably my next three scopes combined.
