This looks like a great option.Check Natchez web site - they have a Burris Veracity Rifle Scope - 3-15x50mm 30mm Ballistic E2 Reticle RFP for $450. Great buy on a great scope. I just got one for my STW - love it. I hesitated because of the 50 mm objective, and like you I prefer a smaller scope. But it actually is very nicely proportioned. It comes with capped turrets but all you have to do is call customer service and they will send you the M.A.D. turrets at N/C. I only used the MAD turret for elevation. You can get custom turrets made by Burris or adhesive strips from a couple of companies.
