If you can afford it, get a decent scope. Even if itís a cheap gun, itís a good investment and can be used on other projects. There are a lot of good scopes in the 2-400 range.

Great advice. besides, then there's an excuse to buy a rifle that deserves the scope. the scopes I'm looking at are in the 180-350 dollar range. down to 4 scopes, maybe 5

My vote would be for the Vortex. Check out their VIP warranty. Ive heard good things about them. I wanted the Viper PST. I ended up with a Leupold MR/T because the PST had not come out yet. I got a chance to look at one at a 3 gun match and really liked it.

I have a barska huntmaster pro on my axis .308. Great scope for only 70 bucks. I shot my best group with it which was 4 shots at 100 yds .397" hole. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.

I got my Burris pretty cheap when that model was discontinued. I think it was about $120 for my 2-7x
