I am all for scopes as well, as long as your good shooting with the stock sight first. I just bought my daughters a Marlin 795 and they want a scope. I will make sure they can place shots down range without one before I put it on for them.

I got a BSA .22 Special 4x32 scope. I have it mounted now with the rings that came with it and I can still (barely) use the irons because I have a sort-of see thru rail and the rings are high. I'm loving the sight picture thru the weaver bases though, I found a set of them at my local wal-mart and I'm REALLY considering picking them up. Thanks for the pic

Default Scope it!

I would definitely scope it. I don't know if your target shooting or varmint shooting but either are so much more fun with a scope. My Ruger 10/22 has a 3x-9x scope on it and I've never missed a squirrel or groundhog and I've shot at over 100yds with it scoped in all the way and it works AMAZINGLY! So scope it for sure.

Okay guys, Just got back from wally world with the weaver rings and mounted them and the scope to the 'ol .22....all screws fastened securely and what not. Gonna have a fun Easter sightin' her in tomorrow. I am LOVING this set up so far, long range shots with the scope, and I can pull off close-in stuff with the still very usable iron sights!
