The 10/22 is a nice rifle on it's own. Rather than buy gadgets for rifles, I prefer to buy ammo. I put my first scope on a .22 bolt action two weeks ago as my eyes ain't what they used to be. I usually shoot with only one or two people at the time, if not shooting by myself. None of the people I shoot with are impressed with gadgets, but I do my best to impress them with my targets.

The only thing about most of the Redfields I am not sure about all the new ones since Leupold owns them. But the older ones have friction adjustments on the elevation and windage knobs when other scopes have the Clicks! I prefer the clicks only because you do not have to come off the rifle to adjust them since you do not have to visually count the lines. The other scopes with the clicks you can feel them and hear them normally and they are normally 1/4 MOA clicks. Info Only! By the way the 10-22s are great little rifles! I bought one for my grandsons for Christmas three years ago. They love them!

Sniper- The Redfield Revenge 4-12x42mm I just bought clicks with with any and all adjustments. I have to agree, getting a scope without clicks while adjusting is a nuisance.

Really good point about the clicks.

a couple of months ago i did some repairs to a friends 10/22 rifle and had some time to put a couple of hundred rounds through it and though i still prefer my Marlin M60, i am surely thinking about getting one for the wife, because she wants a 22 rifle with open sights and no scope. the biggest issue i had with it was the heavy trigger pull. so if i were to buy one, this would be the one area that got some sort of fix or modification. other than that, it would remain mostly stock.
