Default Your insight sought on sights/scope for 10/22

Hello all,
I was curious if anyone would kindly share their recommendations for any alternate sights, red dot or scope etc for use on my new basic Ruger 10/22 carbine. For both in-close and far-out targets or does that even matter-
I have not owned one before but have used many and did not know if there was a smart alternative to the factory metal sights. Thank you-

A simple 3x-9x would be fine on your 10/22. Be sure to either get a rimfire scope or 1 that has adjustable objective. Rimfire scopes will have the factory parallax adjusted for 50 yards. Scopes with adjustable objective will have adjustable parallax and are usually at least 4x-12x in power.

This is the scope I have on my Marlin 60:

For the money you would be hard pressed to find a better set-up'

I have a Cabela's rimfire scope on mine. Got it for half price at 50 bucks. Comes with a lifetime guarantee and according to the guy at the counter, if it gets broken they don't ask questions, they just take care of the customer!

Ronhart International has some nice mini-scope kits under $100 available for the Ruger 10/22. Kits include a scope, Picatinny rail and rings.

I am a big fan of the Centerpoint line of optics available at Walmart. The AR22 is a 3-9x32 and is parallax free at 50 yards. It comes with tip-off rings, illuminated reticle, and fast focus ring for under $60. Hard to beat.
