A scope on a 22 deosn't have to endure much if any recoil. A $40 scope should be just fine. If you are using see through mounts (which I don't advise) keep the objestive as small as you can. This will keep the scope closer to the barrel as possible, which is adviseable.

Someone still watches Olbermann??

There are plenty of good rimfire scopes out there.

I got this Simmons for ~$40 and I'm happy with it.



Check out SWFA, they have some great prices on riflescopes:

Your just jealous.

Diggs, that is actually a GIF image, I can send via E-Mail to you. The head moves around and gets bigger and then smaller. It's quite insane.

I would highly recommend getting a .22 scope such as Cane posted. The reason is if you put a "regular" scope on it you'll have excessive parallax at .22 ranges. Most scopes meant for centerfire rifles are adjusted at the factory to be parallax free at 100-150 yards. .22 scopes are adjusted to be parallax free at 50 yards. A way to get around it is to buy a scope with an adjustable objective such as a 4x-12x.

I do like that Simmons, and can get one at dicks for $35, My rifle bag is too small to keep the scope on so I will have to keep taking it off and putting back on, is that a problem?

Your going to have to use detachable rings or your going to lose zero every time you remove the scope. It may be cheaper to buy a case made for a scoped rifle.

I'd recommend you get a scoped rifle case as well. You're going to lose zero by taking the scope off. Once you get the scope in perfect zero-leave it on and tight.
