i have a sub from gun test ... (guntest.com) a GREAT mag.. tells u like it is... i bought a scope w/ their recommendation...
Simmons 22 Mag Riflescope 3-9x32mm 511072, $52
haven't had a problem w/ it...

test scores:

TruGlo 4x32mm Model TG8504BR = F
BSA 22 Special Model S4X32WR = F
Tasco’s 22 Riflescope 3-9x32mm Model MAG39X32D = C
Simmons 22 Mag Riflescope 3-9x32mm 511072 = B


Rimfire Riflescopes Under $50: Bubbles Sink TruGlo and BSA - (Nov 15 2010)
At one time optics for a rimfire rifle meant a scope with a 0.75-inch tube—including objective—and no adjustable magnification. You could also get it with any reticle type you wanted as long as it was a traditional crosshair. You can still purchase these types of scopes, but today’s rimfire scopes share a lot in common with centerfire scopes. They come in 1-inch tubes and have adjustable magnification, parallax adjustment, and an assortment of reticle types. We were interested to see if low cost—around $50—had any relationship to quality and usability. Our test products were the TruGlo 4x32mm Model TG8504BR, $50; the BSA 22 Special Model S4X32WR, $40; Tasco’s 22 Riflescope 3-9x32mm Model MAG39X32D, $50; and the Simmons 22 Mag Riflescope 3-9x32mm 511072, $52. Before we did any range work with the scopes, we performed a shock test by whacking the scope on a wooden bench to determine if a jolt would have an effect. Next, we removed turret covers and froze the scopes in a -4 degree freezer and soaked them in a sink of hot water to see if seals leaked, making the scope susceptible to moisture build up.

hope this helps.......
remember this... ANYBODY can make rate... but ONLY GOD can make a bosn' mate !! LOL !!

i use a Simmons 3-9x40 8-Point scope on my 22 rifle. i only use it at 25 to 75 yards and it works great. they are about $35-40 and work great for general purpose shooting and hunting.

whatever scope you decide on, get quality rings and bases. theese will make a lot of difference in the scope reliabilty.

Most of the scopes carry a limited lifetime warranty. Stay away from those that dont. There is usually a reason why a company wont warranty their products. The 22lr is a 50 yard cartridge. Sighting in at about 30 yards will put you on a squirrel out to 70 yards +/- 5 yards on either end depending on ammo. Yes you can shoot out to 100 yards but there wont be much power left and there are better rounds for that distance. Scopes designed for 22lr usually have their parallax set at 50 yards. Center fire hunting scopes are parallaxed at 100 yards. Shotgun scopes are 50-75 yards. On scopes with an adjustable objective (AO), you set the parallax where you want it. If you want a fast handling bunny buster go with a low power like 1-4. Bushnell Banner 1-4x32 with a circle x reticle. The parallax is set at 50 yards and can be found for about $70. Do you want a squirrel gun? you might want a 2-7 or 3-9. The Simmons 22mag 3-9x32 sells for about $50. The Simmons 22mag 3-9x32 AO at about $70 has an adjustable objective. The Mueller APV is also an AO but is a large heavy scope more suitable for a target rifle. The center fire scopes set at 100 yards will cause sighting errors at shorter ranges unless you get a perfect repeatable cheek weld that centers your eye on the scope.
