christmas scope

My ol' lady asked me what I want for Christmas this year, and the only thing I could think of is a mew scope for my 700. I need some suggestions on an affordable good scope within $100-$150. Again, my rifle is a Remington 700 ADL .270 Win.

Redfield Revolution has some nice glass, and they are made in the USA. Here is a link to Redfield Revolution at Optics Planet.

Bushnell also has some decent rifle scopes in your price range.

Burris FFII would be my choice. It will blow the others in that price range away and you should be able to find one in that price range on eBay or somewhere similar NIB if you look hard enough.

The redfield revolution series is excellent glass,I have the 2-7x35 it is super clear made in same factory as the Leupold may be same scope with different finish.(?) Hard to beat for price, small footprint, light weight would look good on the 700.

I have two of the Mueller 4-16 X 50AO lighted dot scopes on my rifles and they were $209 each. Put a sun shield on both also.

Here's one for your price range....

Wait until after Christmas. Most Walmarts will mark down Leupold 2x7 Rifleman scopes down to about $139 from $189

I'm mostly a 'Leupold guy', but bought a Burris FFII in 4.5X14 about 6 months ago and put it on my 260. The scope is impressive in bright light and in dim light. I've dropped a few coyotes and pigs at very low light levels, and evening before last I had a big 10 point right out in front of my stand and it was effectively dark. Opening day isn't till Saturday, so he got a pass, but I did put the crosshairs on him and could see him quite clearly. The Burris has impressed me. It's good quality and a good price, though it's more money than I think you said you want to pay. The Burris replaced a Weaver 2X10 (V10), and the Burris is a better scope, but the Weaver was still a good scope and the NIB price is about $170 I think.

Pentax Gameseeker II.

If she orders the one for <100 tell her to get you a lens pen for $10 and you will get free shipping on everything.
