Redfield and leupold makes some great scopes under 200$, and Leupold now owns Redfield, so improved quality and lifetime warrenty too.Both make
1.25x5 mag scopes for close range.Dont spend 150$ on Chinese crap, save your money and buy USA or Japanese scope .you cant send a chinese scope in for
repair .If you can find a Tasco Titan in 1.25x5 like i did 7 years ago for 80$,, its a great buy ,made in Japan, 30mm tube ,built and heavy.as far as
a red dot is concerned, the Bushnell TRS-25 is highly rated, plenty of happy buyers, 80$.i just got a used Tasco Pro Point off e-bay, made in japan,
very well bilt,and only 40$.,way better than any chinese crap i have seen.personally if i had the money i would spend it ona 1-5 variable compact
scope, lighted recticle made by US optics.
