Best rimfire scope ?
 
What's the best rimfire scope ? I'm looking to upgrade my scope. I don't want to spend no more than 175 on it. Any scopes ?

Savage 22 long. It's a fv. I want to use it for varmint and plinking.

Then bushnell banner 4-12 x 40 ao, nikon prostaff, centerpoints, or bushnell sport view 3-9, tasco 3-9 or anything like that will work well.

I have a BSA sweet 22 on it but I don't like it. Any other ?

All I mentioned are better quality scopes. Nikon and bushnells are clearest of the ones I mentions. Tasco is a good scope as well

truth in this.. i picked up a used tasco 3x9x32 for one of my .22s got it used at the LGS for 30 bucks.. its super clear, almost as good as my nikon. and so far works great.

I'm liking them scopes. I was looking into it alittle more and I seen a mueller apv 4.5-14x40 scope.

I have a Simmons 22 mag 4x fixed power scope on my 22. The fixed power scopes have a wide field of view and great eye relief. The Simmons scope has a lifetime warranty. I had a BSA 2.5x shotgun scope on my 22 until I put the shotgun scope on my shotgun. The BSA scope has a lifetime warranty. Both scopes gave me great service and have clear glass. The primary use for my weapons is hunting. IMO fixed power scopes serve hunters better than variable power scopes. I even have a 4x fixed power scope on my 30/06. Other hunters including Massad Ayoob prefer fixed power scopes.
