Default Decent ACOG clone / Low power scope for M-4?

I have a 4X Trijicon ACOG for my M-4 and it was $1,200 bucks. I just ordered two new M-4's for my boys and need to get them optics but don't want to pay near that kind of money.
Can I get some recommendations on lower priced units? Red dots are OK but I do like the simple 4X or similar magnification / set up. Is there anything suitable for $250 or less range? Thanks for your input.

Does it have to be an ACOG clone?
Something like this might work...http://www.opticsplanet.net/millett-...FRphgwod8lTzZA

Same kind of scope made by a few others varying in price.

Also the Vortex Sparc with magnifier.

I have this 4x32 Prismatic scope. Seems to be fine optics for an inexpensive cost.
