I have the Burris AR Prism 5x32, and it is a really good scope for the money.I really like it. I also have a Primary Arms microdot. It is very similar to the Bushnell I linked to earlier. I switch out from one to the other depending on what I plan on shooting. For under 300 yards I prefer the microdot because I can keep both eyes open when aiming. Anything over 300, I use the Burris 5x32. It is entirely up to you what you want, both are good choices in the under $500 budget. Just my $0.02
