Scopes are a rather personal thing (as we all have different eyes) so try to look through whatever you consider prior to purchasing it.
But, I would expect to see the following recommended...
Bushnell 8-32x40 front focus (being discontinued sadly but, some still available new), very popular on a springer due to low weight.
Leupold Competition, again low weight but, fixed magnification (35 / 40 / 45)
Sightron SIII 10-50x60
Big Nikko
Falcon T50

There are of course others but, I would say the above are the most popular choices.

Hope that helps.

As stated it depends what suits, Wallet and eyes. I went with
the big Nikko and am not disappointed, tried some others and couldn't get in with them, and others swear by them ! Ask to try most folk will be happy to oblige when at a range. My thoughts only, sure there will be more to follow.
