    would like to know too.
    Have narrowed it a bit.
    ideally light weight, parralax adj, fixed power 6 or 10 x 40. illuminated dot
    smooth eyepiece. low profile adj turrets

    definitely not a mamba lite, although highly recommended be some.
    would love to try a burris eliminator even though it fails most of the critera

    You could always ask Starlight, as being the guys that make them they must of tested them on various scope??

    I use a bushnel scope with front parallax a just mentioned with my archer and it's fantastic i was thinking of trying a richer optic to see what ther like but haven't got around to it the guys at starlight will tell you leopuld vx3 scopes are the best with the archers from memory
    hope this helps abt adrian

    Can't recommend vortex enough.

    I've always found MTC are the best with add on night vision. Hawke and nikko stirling are good but MTC all the way.

    MTC Mamba lite (good with NV, but not great in daylight) or Bushnell Legend Ultra (good both day and night)
    Some of the Hawke scopes with side focus are OK
    You will have extreme difficulty finding a fixed magnification scope that has side focus adjustment.
    Maybe they have changed, but the older Voretx scopes were notorious for giving poor results with rear add-ons.

    Cheers

    I downgraded from a Vortex PST FFP to a MTC Genesis purely for the NV option. The fact that the MTC parallaxes to 10yds means that I can use the rear add on at up to 11x magnification and it is very clear. The plus side is that the MTC reticule has and small illuminated x in the centre which is ideal when using NV.

    It is poor compared with the PST in the day, both in functionality (perfect tracking on the PST, sloppy on the MTC) and glass but excels at night.
