My top two would be March or S&B with IOR coming in a close third.

March Optics

S&B

IOR

I use a Simmons 3 X 9 x 32 .22 Mag. with A.O.. Very clear, precise and holds zero well. Black = $45, Silver = $65.

If you want to spend over $100 for a scope go with the Mueller APV 4.5 X 14 X 40 with A.O.. Black = $125. They seem to be the most popular in the $100+ range.

For a good .920 barrels you can't go wrong with Green Mountain +/- $120. If you like to spend money go with a Kid. They're generally over $200. :cool:

Scope
 
I use a KonusPro M30 1.5x6x44mm on my M&P15-22 for competition. There about $220.00 +mounts. It also has red or green dot which can be turned on or off, engraved reticle, etc. Worth taking a look at see link below.

+1 on the Snakedriver's recommendation. I have had good success with the Simmon's scopes. I also use a 44Mag 3x9.

I use a few Simmons Prohunter scopes on my centerfire and rimfire rifles.

Might want to visit Natchez Shooters Supplies and check out the Prohunter models....here is a 4-12x40 SF and with Simmons 25% of price rebate it is $60 plus shipping. With side focus you can adjust the parallax to suit the distance you are shooting. Have two of these in 6-18 on centerfire rifles, OK scopes.

Check out Bushnell's line of rim fire scopes. 32mm w/ 1" tube. My son has a 4x32 on his 190 and it shoots great. Very reasonable price.

If money is not a problem I'd go with a Nikon Monarch 4x-16x-40mm with side focus. As far as drop in barrels go it's darn hard to beat a Hart or Lilja barrel. I've got a Shilen barrel on 1 of my 10/22s and it groups pretty good.

Highpower 10-27-2010 03:55 PM

+1 on the Shilen.

These are the test groups from one of my 10/22's. (50 yds.)
Shilen barrel - Tasco scope :eek:

I wish I could say the same for my Simons ProSport 3-9x40, it bite the dust. I going to send it back with $10 for warranty work - repair or replace. I only paid $47. Good scope for plinkering time.

I could take the Bushnell or Nikon from my other rifles, since they have quick releases; but, they stay on those rifles. I am using Leaper's Tactical in the meantime. Good for 100 yards; except, when the wind is blowing like a madman!
