If you were setting up a home defense rifle I'd say go with an Eotech electronic sight but not so much for hunting. I'd start looking for a 1-3x or 1-4x scope with a true 1x at the low end and I'd mount it a quick disconnect mount. At the low end a Weaver V3 1-3x20 is a very good little dangerous game scope and will work great in a 1" Burris QD P.E.P.R mount. At a middle-price point I'd look at a Vortex Viper PST 1-4x24 with an illuminated reticle. The Viper could go in a 30mm Burris P.E.P.R. or better yet a LaRure Tactical mount.

But the first thing I'd do is add some flip-up backup sights (I really like Troy's sights) even if it's cheap plastic Magpul sights.
