an airgun scope is made for an airgun for a reason. the recoil pulse from an airgun will destroy a rimfire rifle scope in aa very short time. buy yourself an in expensice .22 rimfire scope for the .22... a nice one can be found at amazon / wallmart for under $60.00 with mounts for your rifle. and please don't use a .22 rifle scope on an airgun it will destroy your scope...

That came out a little jumbled? I'm not planning on putting it on my air rifle, it's going from my air rifle to my .22 and the cheapest Walmart one is a tasco 3-9x20 wich I'm going to grab tomorrow when I pay is in.

Glad to hear it works great. I'm kind of stuck between two scopes now. If the tasco come with the proper rings I'll grab that, if not there's one at the local Canadian tire. Don't remember what the make is off hand since it was late last night when I was looking around for a scope. I'll let you know if/when I grab it though.

You should be all right. My Kimber 82 has an old Beeman 2-7x scope on it. Works fine. Spring airguns are harder on scopes than .22s.

That's how I'm looking at this. So far we've sent maybe 20ish rounds down rang with the crossman in my girls rifle and its still holding the half a$sed zero we managed to get it to. Might try and re-zero it again today while zeroing mine in....if she's up early enough. Haha
