      Leupold's are American made and have a liftime warr.
      The VX II can be found at Wally World for under $200.00
      Hope this helps.
      Good rule of thumb, buy the BEST glass you can afford.

              My kids and I have had good results with the Nikon Pro-Staff, economical, clear, dependable.

                You get what you pay for. It was well said above; buy the best glass you can afford. There are some decent scopes available in the $165 to $250 price range which is the absolute minimum I would consider to spend. I would go online to Cabela's website and look at all the scopes they have available, pick one in my price range, and then do an internet search on that particular brand and model to find the best price. Be sure to factor in shipping costs. If you have a local sporting/hunting goods store nearby, I would give them a look too. It is a good thing to support your hometown business.

                    Leupold and don't forget a good set of rings. Cheap rings will likely damage the finish on your scope. A good scope is only as good as the rings that hold it. A 3X-9X variable is about right and a fixed 4X will do the job, is more rugged and costs less.

                      Go with Leupold, you can't go wrong. That's the only scope I will use.

                          Your getting a good accurate gun. I bought the 111 G years ago, so I had to remove the iron sights. NS means no sights. My gun is very accurate, I'm glad I bought it. One tip. Don't buy your gun and take it out to shoot. Take it home and clean the barrel out. Mine had lots of protective grease. Don't know if it was cosmoline, but I'm glad I got it out first.

                            Those Leupold guys must be doing something right because they would be my first choice too. I have a 3.5-10x for a rifle like that and love it. If you can spend more, you will like the VXIII even more (around $400-$600)... extremely clear. The scope and mounts will define the accuracy of that rifle; I would get good ones if I intend to use the rifle much.
