The Leupold in 2x7 or 3x9 would be perfect. If the VX 2 series is out of your $200 budget, then look at the new Leupold VX Freedom series, it's getting good reviews and I think it's $199 tops, maybe less.So, I am finishing up my 10//22 build.
Standard carbine in choate folding stock.
This carbine has been loved up by Connecticut precision chambering.
Stupidly accurate, 100% reliable.
Now I need glass on a budget... At least for a few more months.
What do you recommend?
Thinking I would like a straight 4, 2X7, OR 3x9 at the biggest.
Would like to be in the $200.00 range for now..
Thanks in advance..

The Redfield Revolution 2-7 and 3-9 are very similar to the Leupold (made in the same USA factory - at least they were a few years ago when I bought mine). And, might be a bit less money than the Leupold. I think I have three (3) Revolutions now - they have been good scopes.I am looking hard at the VX2 Leupold 2X7...
Ah, I didn't see this before I posted. Very good choice!I agree.. I have high end glass and triggers on all my rifles.
Also the red dot won’t work for me because I have to make head shots on beavers with it..
I have decided on the Leupold Vx2 2X7.
Funny! Me and one of my employees actually have a few (builder) scopes that we just use till the build is complete, Then put the good glass on..Everyone should make a point to have an old Weaver K4 lying around as a spare or to put on a new rifle until you figure out or save for what you want permanently.
Old steel El Paso built K4's can be bought at gunshows or on Ebay for $50 or so without breaking a sweat.
