Riton RT-S Mod 7 1-5x
Low powered variable scopes are an excellent optic choice for just about all close to mid-range engagements. The low end 1x allows you to make fast and accurate hits at close distances while the top magnification (4x, 5x, 6x, etc) is very useful for extended range targets.
The Riton RT-S Mod 7 1-5×24 scope is an affordable low powered variable scope with an illuminated reticle in the second focal plane and 1/2MOA adjustment capped turrets. The optic has high density glass that is fully coated including a low light enhancement coating.

For what the optic costs I was very happy with the image quality. Crisp target definition at 100yds and a wide field of view. I also liked the reticle design. The floating center dot allowed precise shot placement while the horseshoe allowed the eye to quickly acquire the reticle.
Ideally I would like to get a throw lever for the magnification ring to allow quicker or finer magnification adjustments and intermittent “off” positions for the illumination would be a wonderful addition as well.
The RT-S Mod 7 1-5x definitely is a contender for the entry to mid level low powered variable optics. If you just acquired a new AR or are ready to switch from a red dot to an LVPO than you should definitely check out the Riton RT-S Mod 7 1-5×24
