For that money I would go Leapers before Konus, BSA, Barska, Tasco, NcStar, Simmons, etc

Compact Leapers will work good for $100:

Some bushnell with work also, just you may lose the ability to adjust your parallax for under $100. I personally hate not being able to focus my image, having to adjust the zoom rather.

Go with that leapers. I have seen/used it and it will work. OR spend more money

Edit: Also, a dot sight of some kind by Primary Arms or Vortex will take you out to 200 yards. Try and get a small dot if you go that route

Konus is NOT, I promise. Don't go sightmark either. Vortex, Bushnell, or Nikon for that price range

There is no way i'd recommend a Leapers over a Konus or Simmons. those are much, much better than Barska, leapers, UTG, Tasco or NCstar.

come on man...

Not a leapers fan? I am for it over Konus and most Simmons

I have the Sightmark 1.5x5 30mm on my converted Saiga 7.62x39. It's clear and bright at all magnification, has good eye relief, the turrets have a solid click no need to look, it's holding zero after 550 rounds of 7.62x39, being that it's a tad under 11 inch it's compact, The scope is heavy (all metal) considering the size. Im able to shoot 1.5 MOA out to 150 yds. Overall for the price, it is a very nice compact scope and I would buy again.
