Scope recommendations?

I have ordered a Bassett mount for my M1a...the Standard High Scope Mount Package. I want to use a light scope, and 4X would be enough power for the kind of shooting I am going to do. Also, I don't want to pay too much for the scope, as the iron sights are mainly what I plan to use. They are usable with the Bassett mount, but of course I would normally use them without the scope mounted. I would pay the price for a Leupold at around $600 (which seems to be a price you can get), as I would prefer to buy American if possible. I am not sure if their Mk4 Tactical is suitable for the M1a. It seems that it is more for the AR15 type of rifle.
Any suggestions?

If all you want is 4x magnification then I recommend the Primary arms 4x or 5x prism optic. Those things just work. Then buy a bradly cheek rest you are going to need it. If the price/quality is too low for you then go vortex, leupold, bushnell...

But for the price these things just perform and are a great straight forward battle sight.
