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.

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 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.
