Our tired old eyes dont work well with open blade irons anymore so my wife and I have scopes on all of our rifles. One of the 10-22's is carrying a 2.5X Konus shotgun scope with a diamond reticle and the other is carrying a red dot. We switch off and shoot both. The red dots are great for off hand shooting and very fast target acquisition. The diamond reticle is almost as fast and has finer x hairs with some magnification for more accurate shots on small targets.

That is why I scope em all. Eyes are getting older too.
A good friend has that scope on his 10-22 and it is a cracker Jack for accurate.

Well, if you are gonna use see-thru mounts, get a better Target-adjustable rear sight.
Quite a few out there

I went out Sunday and fired off a few rounds workin' on gettin' her sighted in. She's almost there but I'll feel more comfortable with the accuracy if I get a chair and a table to rest it on and REALLY get a good zero. I am LOVING the see-thru rings, I couldn't imagine a better set up. I love being able to choose which method I want to use. Thanks for all of your input guys!

You should consider puting a sling stud in that nice sturdy wood stock and then mounting a bipod on it to give yourself a nice stable platform for aiming. It makes a big difference. Wally World bipods that are sold under the Winchester lable go for about $35 as I recall and they are just fine for a .22.

Default Red dot for 10/22

I found a picatinny rail mount for mine and currently have a Millett 3 mil red dot sight on it as I can see well enough out to 50 yards.

not tryin to steal the thread, just wondering I just got my all-weather 10-22 about 2 days ago and noticed that the 3rd base hole back from the front of the receiver was stripped from the factory all the others where fine I mounted a 3x9 on it shoots fine drivin tacks at 50 yards my question is do you guys think that it is worth calling Ruger and seeing if they will fix it? Oh yeah my vote is to scope it

sandbags work good from the bench to get sighted in
