Similar scope to a Schmidt & Bender "Short Dot"

So I'm trying to find an ACM scope that's similar to the Schmidt & Bender Zenith "Short Dot" basically I want the look without paying the price of the real steel version of the glass. Also I want to mount an "MGM Switchview" lever on it just to get the look I'm going for, if the scope can accommodate that as well then I'll be a happy camper. Also if someone could tell me what one piece scope ring mount that is on the rifle in the below reference pics I would appreciate that as well. Otherwise I'll go with a KAC one piece scope mount that it kind of looks similar to.

Also I would prefer if the scope comes from RSOV but any site will do.

Reference pics for mount below:

Thanks Damage. Although appreciated and does cost 20% of the price of the S&B glass; I'm looking for something more in the "student budget" price range, eg. $75-125 at most.

@ Danke; I am looking more at the Zenith series Short dot ("LE" or standard model I don't really care). The third one down on this page here: http://www.schmidtbender.com/scopes_...marksman.shtml or the one on the top of the page here: http://www.schmidtbender.com/scopes_zenith.shtml

I asked a similar question back then about getting a replica of the Trijicon TR24 Short Dot , however too bad they dont make one cuz it would be epic, but my alternative was a barska 1.5-4.5 short dot scope

http://www.opticsplanet.net/barska-1...e-ac10770.html

check this out im about to purchase this too to mount on my DMR

When you can find them the Barska scope is a pretty good one.

If you can find a bit more to spend then Nikon one is worth the step up.

Good luck buying from Optics Planet if you're not on CONUS with a US credit card.

Barska will sell direct to a Canadian but will only ship to a US address.

They do turn up on eBay for about the same price at places that will ship to Canada.

I'm surprised they're so hard to find up here otherwise.

haha, I was looking for something similar a few months ago for my Scar-H, and I found this....

Its cheap, nice and clear optic, long eye relief, and does the job for airsoft + its super cheap! :P

Leupold Mark 4 3.5-10x25 R/G illuminated mil-dot rifle scope(LINK)

Here's a pic of that optic, mounted on my VFC Scar-h!

Yes, but if you looks carefully, at the bottom of the page, it says:

Riflescopes, laser sights and shooting accessories ship within the USA only.
