Persoanlly for $125 I'd be searching for a fixed 4x or 6x like mr big said. Nikon, Leupold, used Weaver before I'd spend money on a simmons.

For $125 you could get a used Nikon Prostaff 3x9x40, great scopes for the money, I have four of them.

That would be my first choice for a cheap scope.

I will let a gun sit in the safe until I can buy the scope I want for it. I never buy a cheap" scope anymore because it is a waste of money to me. JMO

Right now you can get one of the Simmons 6.5-20x50 scopes from Midway for an even hundred. They're a decent scope considering the price. They have them made up in a lot about once a year and are able to offer them at a significant discount. If you'll check out the consumer ratings of the scope on their website you'll see that almost all who bought them were highly pleased and gave the scope their maximum 5 star rating considering it's price. They're a good knockabout scope and will probably serve you well from now on with the H&R Ultra.
