    you might want to look at the Clearidge scopes. they have a 4-22x with a 30mm tube. reviews have been great. compact enough to be used on a carry gun(13") yet versatile enough to be used for varmints or long range. they cost about 600 though.

    +1 on the Clearidge, the more I use mine the more I like it.

    Sightron makes a great scope. It's slightly more than $500, but a great scope.
