I have this, and I'm quite happy with it, for the same range that you need:

I have two Hawk scopes 4-12X50 and 6.5-20X42. I would highly recommend this brand. I have one on my AA TX200 and the other on my Daystate Regal XL. They are clear and the adjustments are accurate.

You didn't mention anything about price range, so I'll let you know that I lean more towards the budget side of things. :) No doubt there are better choices that what's listed below, but these are affordable for most.

I have a Hawke Airmax 30 SF 4-16x50, which is a great scope, but it's definitely on the heavy side at 27.5 ounces. It was mounted on my Regal XL for a while until I decided to look for something lighter. After some web research, I settled on a Vortex Sidewinder 4-12X40 AO w/BDC reticle. It's not as feature-rich as the Hawke, but at about 1/2 the price and 1/2 the weight, still a decent option. The reduction in weight was a noticeable and welcome change.

Biggest drawbacks to the Vortex are, AO is harder to adjust than side-focus, and the reticle is non-illuminated with somewhat thicker crosshairs. It's still overall an excellent scope, especially for the money, mine was $199 USD with free shipping.
