    Rimfire Rifle Scope - Which one is the Best?

    I just purchased a Ruger 10/22 Target rifle (Target Model). I want to get a good scope at a fair price. From what I have seen from searching, they are all over the board in price. I'd like to stay uder $200.00.

    So what do you use, and would you recomend it?

    I have a barska 4x32 on my .22lr bolt action. Its great for the price as it was only 50? dollars I believe. Sometimes I wish it was more power but it gets the job done

    I have gone thru two. one was Simmons wide angle 44 3-10 parrelax adj. to 150 yrds. fuzzy at 50 yrds. So then I got an adj. objective Simmons Whitetail wide angle 6.5X20 that works great except the gun shoots one fly at 50 yrds. and the crosshairs 'x' will cover a herd of flies at 50yrds. ??? Might have to go with my straight 6x Burris HBR target dot.
    Scopes aren't fun to sell. 1/2 $$ price is good to get for used scopes. errrr.

    I put a Simmons 22mag 3X9 on my 22 for $40 at Warehouse sports. There isn't enough recoil to worry much with a scope on a 22/22mag. Just how often are you going to be out in the inclement weather with it?

    I also wanted to scope my 10/22 because I want to attend an Appleseed and they recommend a scoped 22, so I just ordered from Cheaper Than Dirt a Leapers a UTG 6X32 Scope - http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/ItemDetail.aspx?sku=SCP-086 only $29.97 and a DNZ Game Reaper one piece scope mount with rings - http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/ItemDetail.aspx?sku=58742 the mount was twice what the scope costs but should result in a solid base with less chance of loosening. The rings are an integral part of the base which attaches with 4 screws on the receiver. Even if the Chinese imported scope proves to be junk the base can be used for any 1" scope I choose for a replacement.

    I have a 10/22 target in a fajen legacy adj stock. I'm using the ruger rail, Burris signature zee rings and a mueller apv. I'm very happy with the combo. If you want a lot of info on modding your 10/22 check out rimfire central.

    I ended up moving my Simmons Pro hunter 6-18x40 A.O from my Savage .223 to the new rifle. I can't say enough about the Ruger Target, the heavy barrel makes a world of difference. The scope took some work to mount, I ended up using the risers from a ORC Bushmaster, but it works great. I was shooting half inch groups at 50 yards in the wind. I could actually see the bullet hit. I may change the mount, but the scope which is over kill for sure, is so clear and bright, it will be great for Sage rats. Thanks to everyone who replied.

    Hey guys,

    Im new to this forum. Im strongly considering getting an ISSC MK22 rimfire .22 for plinking on the cheap and staying sharp. Its a fun little toy. Im wondering of all the scopes you guys are talkign about what you would suggest for this: red dot, affordable BSA sweet, or the Mueller APV that is favorably mentioned a lot.

    I also have an interesting tactical stock (RONI) that converts my Beretta PX4 into a carbine. So Id like a short, affordable optics solution that will fit both affordable rifles. I have not used a red dot but am open to that.

    Saving the big bucks for my Tikka T3 scope when the time is right. Any word on a second hand scope for that while Im at it?

    Thank you and welcome. To me.

    Weaver 2.5-7x28 Classic Rimfire Rifle Scope ....this one if its gonna be a plinker/hunter...........Then get serious and get the Mueller APV and shoot little holes in paper as far as you want.......Both of these are highly regarded on the most popular Rimfire site on the web!
