Honestly, forget illumination in that price range. To do it well has a cost, and no one - that I have ever seen - does it well in a $200 scope.

Kickboxer's recommendation is a good one.

And, I forgot to add, if this is your first time scoping an AR, don't use conventional rings, you really need a mount made for an AR.

I have this and I like it for coyotes. 2x is more useful than 3x and its a tad smaller than a 3-9 scope.  (balistic reticles work at the max power of the scope)

that redfield scope has less field of view at 2x than some 3-9x scopes at 3x. The vortex diamond back 3-9x would be a better choice.  You loose nothing on the bottom end, but gain 8 and 9 on the top end. 

The only better about that redfield is that it will be a little more compact, but in every other way it is less
