Good scope for ruger 10/22
 
what would be a scope for a ruger 10/22? without spending $250+

Under $100: the 3-9X32 Simmons .22 Mag Scope with A.O. Blue or Silver $65 +/-.

Over $100: the 4.5-14 X 40 Mueller APV with A.O. Blue or silver $130 +/-

Both have excellent reputations for quality on a 10/22. :cool:

Weaver Classic Rimfire, a little over $100 bucks with parallax set at 50 yards. I think anything over 3-9 power is overkill in a .22.

What are you using it for? Is it stock or a build? Plinker or target?

I like to be able to count the fleas on the squirrels! LOL

I'm with him.
But with the recoil of the 10/22 you can use some big cheap scopes without much worry. I got a 6x20x50 for mine off of e-bay and had it for several years for just a tick over $100 with no issues at all thus far. It's held solid and killed a lot of squirrels. Not 100% sure I would trust it on the 308, but it's been rock solid on the .22

That would be my question too. :)

The straight 40 power scopes on my 200 yd beer can killers would be a bit much for my keep it light wt, carry all day tree rat slayers.

For a keep it stock, right out of the box 10/22 I like a good 3x9. If weight is an issue, ya might even go with a straight 4x scope or even a red dot. Good luck! Ken

I have 2 stock 10-22 rifles. One is carrying a red dot and the other is carrying a Konus 2.5x32 shotgun scope. My bolt action is carrying a 3-12x40 AO. I sometimes kill paper with it at 100 yds. I have not found much need for more than 2.5x at 50 yds.

I have a nice nikon scope on one of my .22's, but I personally have found a cheap sightmark red dot to be great. At the ranges a .22 is generally accurate at, a cheap reflex sight is fine, plus most of the hunting I've done with a .22 is more suited to a small red dot.

Just my opinion, but worth a thought.
