Question/Advice for rimfire scope
 
I just bought a Mossberg 702 Plinkster for kicks and giggles. I'm not going hunting or do any serious target shooting, probably use it to get my wife, daughter, and grandson, involved in shooting.

The gun has a good set of sights on it but I would like to put an inexpensive scope on it. I'm clueless on low end scopes. I'm looking at a Bushnell or Barska 3-9x32 right now. Both are in the area of $38-$42 from Optics Planet or Midway. Is either good enough or one better than the other for what I'm looking for?

Also, both scopes come with rings, but would it be advisable to to buy a set of see thru rings to use instead? And if so, medium or high?

Thanks,

I put a 4x32 Bushnell rimfire scope on my sons Winchester 190 when I bought it. Most of his shooting is under 75 yards and it has been excellent. They also make a 3-9x32. I would steer away from the Barska. The rings are for the dovetail mount and will be fine.

Had a similar question myself a few weeks back. I was looking for an inexpensive scope for a Ruger 10/22. Based on several good recommendations from members I picked up a 3-9x32 Simmons at Dicks for about $50.

Here's a better deal from a great seller.
