What constitutes a "good" scope has more to do with how you intend to use it, than with price. Scopes for rim-fires needn't cost several hundreds of dollars, unless you're a National Competitor. Many of us talk ourselves into more scope than we need. Yes, a Leopold, Zeiss, or Swarovski scope are mechanical jewels, and will let you get every possible second out of a hunt's light conditions. They will also allow for that across-the-mountain shot. They impart bragging rights, too.
However, do we really need scopes capable of multi-hundred yard shots when we're deer hunting in the woods? How many of us are actually in a position where the very first fingers of light, or the very last, will mean anything?
I adhere to the old adage of spending as much on optics as the rifle cost. I own exotic scopes, but I was feeling flush at the moment of purchase. The majority of deer hunters around here are Simmons, Tasco, and Nikon Pro-staff guys. The high-end show-offs sometimes have a Burris, Leopold, or even a 4200 series Bushnell. However, it's usually the Simmons, Tasco crowd who bring home a deer every season. Why? They shoot one load, year after year, at ranges well under 100 yards, in the 0600-0800 or 1700-1800 time frame. They use lever-actions in .30-30 or .35 Remington, and know woodcraft.
I've started using original era scopes on many of my older rifles. It's amazing to see that the BEST scopes of just 50 years ago are just about as good as the cheap scopes available today. I have an old Savage Model 23D, in .22 Hornet, that has an externally adjustable Weaver on it. It's dim, and has a limited field-of-view, but it will get the job done. It also just looks right on that old rifle.
The Eagle Eye Optics have changed their name to IJK. Here's the site http://www.ijksales.com/index.htm
How good they are I don't know, as I've never laid eyes on one. I will keep an eye out for them, though.
