If you need one quick for low bucks go with the Simmons ProDiamond 4x 32. Hard to beat for about $39. Yes, Simmons has a pretty crappy reputation but check out the ML forum, a lot of us use this scope with no complaints. Clear glass, good eye relief and holds up to a lot of punishment. A fixed 4x will easily serve for 90% of your ML needs.

Check it out here.

here are some pics of the scope maybe some of you can help identify it....



That's the Bushnell that comes on many of the cheaper package deal rifles. It doesn't seem to have a model name on it anywhere. Honestly, I wouldn't have given $20 for it. My experience in general with cheap scopes has been a lot better than what most guys online would make you believe, but that particular Bushnell is on of the worst scopes I've had. I'm not at all a fan of it, and I quickly sold mine off.

My Accura V2 is topped with a Leupold Ultimate Slam. Love it.

I must have got lucky... I put a Simmons Pro Diamond shotgun scope on my Omega several years ago and it has performed flawlsessly, has clear optics, decent lowlight capability, and always maintains zero. Even bumped it a couple times and still held zero. I wouldn't hestiate buying another.

Default ML Scope

I have a Traditions 3-9X40 ML scope on my Traditions Canyon and a Bushnell Trophy XLT 3-9X40 rifle scope on my TC Omega Z5. While one is a ML scope I don't believe you really eed a "ML specific" scope. The scope on the Canyon I got from Traditions for $75 and it shoots 1 1/2" groups, while the Bushnell came from a local gun shop for $150. Hope this helps.

I put a Bushnell Banner on my Omega Z5. I know it's not an expensive scope but it has served me well. I have had zero problems in the four years that I have owned the combo.

Bushnell's lowest price scope is the Banner. I suspect that this is what you have. It retails around $75 +/-. It is an economy scope and is often included in rifle/scope combo so called "package" deals.

You need to find some turrret covers, otherwise dust and moisture will contaminate the adjust ent turrets and may eventually corrode enough to breach into the scope tube itself. If you cannot find any covers, I suggest that you "tape" over the adjustment turrets with black electrical tape. Looks like heck, but will help keep the moisture out.

What he has isn't the Banner. There are also the Sportsmans which are also lower than the Banners and in the $40-50 price range. Then there is this which is even lower. I've never seen them for sale individually, only on package rifles, but they aren't anywhere near the quality of a Banner. Not that the Banners are all that great.
