You'd be hard pressed to find a better scope for your budget than the fixed 2x-20mm Burris handgun scope. Good glass and will handle the recoil from your Encore. They are nice hand gun scopes. You can get a Leupold fixed 2x for a few more dollars or double your budget and get a variable power Leupold handgun scope.
Nikon makes a decend fixed power handgun scope as well in the $200 range. It's just that the Burris handgun scope in 2x has a stellar reputation, has a lifetime warranty and is American as apple pie...but owned now by Beretta. Burris' customer service is second to none.
