Scopes come in all price ranges. And like many other things, you get what you pay for.

Go look at some expensive and inexpensive ones to see the differences. Then decide on budget.

Schmidt & Bender
Hensoldt
Kahles
Nightforce
Steiner
US Optics
Vortex
March
Tangent Theta
Trijicon
Bushnell
Leupold
Minox
IOR

Since we're in the semi auto forum, im going to assume tactical scope. There's the list. Any of the high end scopes from any of those makers should serve you well. Go read about them.

I believe the summary so far is:

* can't really answer without knowing a budget and what you want to do

* don't buy cheap

* newbs who ask hugely open-ended questions are in for some ribbing

CGN is really good at that as we all know

To the OP, not sure what your budget is, but some low cost Leapers scopes have worked great for me.
