I'm making I truck gun out if a little single shot handi rifle, (.223) ..cutting barrel down to 16.5 inches...so I should like a small scope ,short and lightweight...any suggestions....I'm not really thinking of a red dot...want a little more range...I've read they are not much past seventy-five yards...a peep would be a better option for that distance for me........dont misunderstand, it's not that I'm a long range guy...most shots would be a 100 yards... probably nothing over 200... Thanks....

I'm partial to the low-power variable 20mm objective scopes made by Leupold for the ranges you've described. Good quality, yet their price won't break the bank.

Either a Leupold 1-4x or a Vortex Diamondback 1.75-5x are my favorites for most Marlins, brush rifles, and on most any rifle that I need handling more then magnification.

I have grabbed a couple 1970s Leupold M8 2.5X scopes for cheeep. Quality of the scope is better than much of what Leupold makes today plus the warranty is still good on 'em.

I am "olskool" I like the vintage steel tube USA made Burris mini scopes. the one on my glenfield 30GT is a 4X the one on my ruger RS is a 1 3/4X5 I have three of those. these scopes are light strong and clear as any Leupold. I would search EBAY if you want one like them. they beat anything china or Filipino made hands down,,,,,,,,,,,
