10/22 to scope or not to scope?
 
Debating on whether or not to get an affordable rimfire scope to add to the ol' 10/22 to extend it's reach...what do you guys think?

Why not scope it, have a little more fun.

No question, you need a scope. Lots more fun.

Definitely BUT don't bother with the stock mount, it's problematic if you don't have blue threadlock. I just installed Weaver see-thru mounts on mine yesterday & aquisition feels more natural due to the scope being raised a little. I have a Simmons 3x9 on mine. Here's where I bought my mounts & saved money: Weaver 1-Inch Steel Lock Mounts for Ruger 10/22:Amazon:Sports & Outdoors

Happy shooting :D

I've got pretty much the same set-up. The Weaver see-thru's allow you to sight using either method and I like having that option. :cool:

I think all my iron sights fell off
 
OOOPS, I forgot my reading glasses.:rolleyes:

A scope is the only way for me.

The gap is 3/4" which up close is plenty tall. Take the front width of the scope into consideration.

Sorry, no pics :(

Here's the best shot of the sight picture that I could get. It's kind of hard to get the shot just the way I'd like it. The Weaver See-thru's are wide enough that they really don't interfer with using the irons. :cool:
