Svage arms model 64...needs scope
I recently purchased my 13 year old a savage 64 .22 LR. He has decided that he wants a scope for plinking.

In 18 years of owning firearms I have never used or owned a scope. So can any one help me with some pointers on what I need to do in order to mount a scope on his rifle. Also, what scopes would you suggest?

By the way, here is a link which shows his rifle

If I'm not mistaken a standard rim-fire scope will mount to the groves on the top of the receiver. Bushnell makes a decent 3X9X32 rim fire scope complete with rings for around $50.00. You should be able to pick one up at Gander or Cabelas.

Took my son along, it was the first time for each of us to shoot with a scope..we had a blast!

I'll try to get some pictures on here tomorrow...thanks again!
