Makes sense...thanks again.

Ok one more question...what's the benefit of an adjustable objective...does it help with the long eye relief? My exposure to optics is limited to astronomical scopes, the issues are probably similar but I just want to be certain that I am not making false assumptions.

Most scopes meant for centerfire rifles have the parallax factory adjusted for 100-150 yards. Rimfire scopes are typically adjusted by the factory to be parallax free @ 50 yards. An adjustable objective allows you to be parallax free at whatever distance you're shooting. It also adjusts the focus to be sharp at that distance as well.

As usual, Bear you are a wealth of knowledge. Everytime I read your posts I learn the answers to questions I never thought to ask.

Get the Bear's trigger job. You will be surprised at how good the trigger will be.

V3 I don't know for sure but that looks to be a Duracoat (or the like) finish on that pictured rifle. It does look to be a Ruger 10-22 though. It's just hard to go wrong with one They make a TON of stuff for them to make them look and fire about any way you want.

I have a Bushnell Sportview 4x12x40 on my 10-22. It has the adjustable objective and I love it. It's an older scope but works great. My father in law got one not long ago from Natchez That was cloudy. He got it replaced and it was better but it still isn't as good as the older one I or he has. I picked up a Simmons ProSport 3x9x40 for a 17hmr rifle that does real well. Believe it was from as Walmart and pretty reasonable priced if I remember.
