    Do someone perhaps have a list of all available 1-10X scopes that are currently in production? Or just list those you know of please:)
    Unfortunately my budget is limited so only scopes priced less than S1200.00 need apply.

    there're only two 1-10 scopes that I recall from memory. one is made by March and the other by Valdada but I suppose there might be another as I don't keep up with everything optics.

    they're both more money than your budget IIRC but there's simply NO WAY to make a 10x magnification factor scope and,at the same time,make it of high quality at the present moment. perhaps in 10 or 20 years they become more prevalent.

    however,since your in South Africa,i don't know what the prices are there. maybe they are less there.

    Here is the only 1-10x scope that we carry within your stated budget

    U.S. optics makes a few scopes close to a 1-10x but they are double your budget

    These are almost 1-10x and only a few hundred over your budget

    So as previous posters stated, what you are looking for is not readily available at this time.

    Thanks, I thought my google skills needs improving, but it seems there are not many 1-10 options out there on a budget.

    I have found that unless you are talking a red dot sight, the actual scope sight picture for shooting with both eyes open is actually 1.3x . Therefore a 1.5x scope is close enough for me to use down to about 7 yards with no restriction in field of vision. LOTS of 1.5-6x scopes out there for reasonable prices and unless you are fully supported 6x is all anyone can use and works well to 600 yards for precision work on shilos, or 300 for , er . squirrels :)
