scout scope for a springfield armory socom 16

I got a springfield armory socom 16. The gun has a rail in front of the action. What scout scopes have you found to be good?
I have only come accross the leupld fx-ii and the burris.

I am thinking the leupold fx-ii in a 4x36.

thanks
tim

Some pistol scopes can be used as scout scopes, depending on the eye relief and how far forward your mounting the scope. There is a much larger variety of pistol scopes than "scout scopes".

If magnification is not an issue, any red-dot should work as well. Plus both aimpoint and eotech are now offering magnifiers for their respective red-dot scopes; although I'm uncertain if the eye relief will work for your application.
