I'd look into a fixed power Leupold. Don't need much magnification with a 30-30.

I'd definitely recommend something 2-7 or 1-4.
(If wife doesn't do a lot of shooting, I'd recommend the 1-4, or a straight 2x fixed power.)

If you like the Redfield 2-7 x 33,
also take a look at the Burris Fullfield II 2-7 x 35.
The Burris may be a slightly better low-light scope.

On 2 power, that Redcield Accurange circle is awesome for snap shooting In the woods, draws your eye right to the center and frames the target very well.
