These actually do work on 22lr. There is one for 17HMR also. The 1st one is a close out and a bargain.
I have used straight 4x rifle scopes I have taken off of centerfire rifles and replaced with 3x9s on my .22lrs, never had any trouble hitting what I was shooting at within the effective range of the 22lr.

You have to spend around $500 on a variable power scope that will match the Simmons fixed power scope in clarity, field of view, eye relief and durability.

I'm not buying what you are selling here. If you look at a 3-9x40mm The field of veiw at 4x on the 3-9 will match a strait 4x scope. Now I do use a 4x32mm scope on a whitetail rifle, but not on a varmint gun. My son has a 4x32 on a .22 semi auto that works great, but 75 yards is the max. The field of veiw w/ a 4x32 is 23 feet at 100 yards, but you can shoot a 1/2" target. Simmons has always made bottom end scopes.

Here is a link to scopes that will work well on a .17HMR. Under $100.00

recommend something with an A.O. or side focus for parallax. Might want to check Graf and Sons for a BSA Majestic DX hunter 4-16x44. Price should be around $80. Others sell this scope for around $120. Yea, its a BSA, but own three of the higher magnification version of the Majestic DX and all are/were mounted on centerfire rifles. Fair amount of rounds fired downrange with them mounted (400 plus) and no problems. Side focus and windage/elevation function quite well, optics are pretty decent. Recently moved one of my Majestics to a newly acquired Marlin XT22 rifle and it is a decent fit on a 22. In other words, dispite it being a 6-24x44 scope, looks pretty decent on a 22 rifle.
