    Just picked up a Ruger .22 bolt and going to use it with a can. Looking for a decent scope for it that wont cost to much if that is possible. Anyone have any dealing with the Nikon P-22?

    I love my sweet 22 by BSA. Surprisingly clear glass for the price point. Turrets preset for common ammo compensations.

    Just put a Redfield Revolution on my bolt action Ruger 22 mag with a can. Very nice and made in Oregon

    I bought a Nikon Prostaff Target EFR for my Ruger 10/22 with an integral suppressor. Its perfect for my needs...

    I know This Is Gonna Get Some Laughs; But The Best Cheap Straight Power I Have Ever Had Is The Simmons 4x 22 Mag Scope. And I mean Cheap In Cost! But Worked Real Well, I was Totally Surprised. Don't know About The Simmons 22 mag in 3-9x.

    I have a Simmons 22 mag 3-9 x 40 on a air rifle. It has a lot of parallax but for a $40 scope I guess its not bad. I wouldn't buy another one. Its probably the nicest $40 scope I have ever bought, Still a $40 scope.

    I put a bushnell trophy 3x9 on mine but mostly because it was slightly abused before I got it but the glass is still clear and it holds a good zero.

    My 10/22 carries a Tasco World Class 4-16. Been on it for thousands of rounds.

    Well I saw the Nikon and liked the glass but not the price point.... The Bushnell looks nice but so does the Primary Arms one.....I have a Primary Arms scope now and the glass is not bad for the price.

    So what do you guys with the Bushy think of the glass?

    Your best bet for shopping might be to head down to Cabelas in Tualatin and handle some scopes in person. I went to the one close to me- they have a great selection of stuff in stock, even if you don't buy it there..

    I am a fan of the Bushnell AR scopes. I have one in 3 - 12 x 40 and a 4.5 - 18 x 40 plus the .22 scope. For $100 optics I dont think they can be beat. Are they comparable to a $600 Leupold? No, but for the dough they are a winner.

    Well picked up a Vortex for a great price. Might be a little to much for the .22 but will see how it works out. I figured for the price I could move it onto another rifle if it did not work out. Only paid 150 for it so noit going to lose on it.

    They are frequently posted up on Craigslist. That would be a place worth looking at.
