Well I don't have a warm pocket to afford the beast, I preferred a scope that has the capability of 120 yards in a low light environment.
Suggest me some good quality that will survive for a couple of years.
Thanks

Used 4x and 6x Leopold scopes can be picked up on eBay for reasonable money. If you want something new, Nikon is probably the market leader in the value segment.

Is ATN MK410 Spartan Gen 1+ 5x a quality product for 50-70 yards?

No, it's not worth buying. Are you looking for a day time or night time scope?

Define low light. Do you mean legal shooting hours for deer or night shooting hogs? The price point of the ATN 410 will get you an excellent medium quality scope for deer. For hog hunting at night, you need to go scope and light, or spend a lot more money.

Yes, legal hunting hours for deer. And night hunt, 50mm objective scope with a red or green flashlight.

I put a Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40 on my son's .243. Cost around $135 on Amazon. We used it for the first time this last weekend. He killed a nice 10 pt with it. I looked through it to see what it looked like in the field and it had awesome clarity and very good light at dawn. As of now, I would buy another in a heartbeat. It is better than any scope I have ever had!

Either Prostaff or Burris Fulfield will do what you need.

I ran a Redfield Revolution 3-9x50 on my 30-06 for a couple of years before my vortex. It was a great low cost scope. I got lucky and found one with the 4-plex reticle right before they discontinued it and picked it up for $100. I think the 3-9x50 now only comes in the Accu-range reticle for around $250. I was very happy with the scope and it now sits on my wifes 22-250.

Vortex makes some good scopes that won't break the bank. As others have said, Nikon can't be beat either

For a decent, sub-$100 scope, look at the Bushnell Dusk and Dawn scopes. I picked up a 3-9x50 on clearance at Atwoods a while back for $40 and have it on an AR in .300aac.

Not a bad scope for the money and I've used it with an amber scope light, and a red spotlight, out to about 100 paces with good results.
