I still have a few 22's without scopes,but I don't shoot them much. Anymore I do good to hit the target at 50-100yrds with open sights.

Another possibility would be an "adjustable" aperture sight, such as a Merit. It works like the shutter on a camera and allows you increase your depth of field to suit YOUR eyesight.

A step above THAT would be a diopter sight. Those allow adjusting not only depth of field, but focus as well. Kind of like an adjustable contact lense that is built into the sight. Normally reserved for target shooting though.

I'm pretty much blind as a bat without my glasses.
But I can take my glasses off and still get a crystal clear view of the front sight and good view of the target with a diopter.

Just sayin..... you've got options.

I bought a new 10/22 today. They're no longer blued, but finished in some kind of matte black coating and the barrel band is plastic.

I too have old guy eyes, and I didn't care for the factory sights, so I scoped it. I was working at Leupold at the time, and put on a 4x, fixed, at employee discount of course.

The Ruger 10/22 has been called the Chevy short block of the gun world. There are more after market parts and gadgets than originally offered by Ruger. About the only thing still factory on mine is the receiver.

The stock and HiViz sights arrived yesterday. Today I bought see through rings online. The new plan is to have the fiber optics and a scope.

I'll probably put a 3-9 x 40 Nikon Pro-Staff on it. That's what's on my other 10/22 and it works well for me.

That will give me three scoped rifles. Two 10/22's with Nikon Pro-Staffs and my 1917 Eddystone with a Nikon Team Primos 3-9 x 40. I'm fond of Nikon's, I'm used to them and they give excellent quality for the price.

I figure the scope/fiber optics should be a great combination.
